BooK GiVeaWay: FLy aWay HoMe By JeN WeiNeR


CONTEST CLOSED!

WINNERS have been announced!--
Congratulations to Autumn and Bridget who are the two winners of this giveaway! If you'll both email me, I can give you details on how you can get your books!
And thanks all who entered! I will have another great book for you next week - A Maze of Grace, by Trish Ryan, a great friend of mine, and fabulous author, so check back. I also have some exciting news -- I GOT A JOB! (No, I'm not cleaning toilets!)

Book Giveaway!
JeNNiFeR WeiNeR'S FLY AWAY HOME


Jennifer Weiner's next book, Fly Away Home comes out THIS Tuesday and I'm halfway through it, and trying to slip away from the duties of mom any chance I can to finish it. But I will tell you when I got to page 20 I was like, OH.MY.GOD! My husband was sleeping next to me and after reading page 20, I felt the urge to reach over and attack him! What a SCENE! HOT! HOT! HOT!

FLY AWAY HOME is being described as “hilarious, heartbreaking, and insightful” and features a sister duo (I love Weiner’s books with sister combos!) and a politician’s wife. The three women take refuge at the family beach house after Dad’s extramarital affair makes headlines.

I am loving all three of the women characters -- each are written so uniquely as only Jennifer Weiner can write them. Strong women, with quirky personalities, and I'm so anxious to find out where the story goes. I am hoping beyond hope that the hussy who breaks up the family shows up in the book -- SHE'S JUST GOT TO! A regular Monica Lewinsky! I just can't wait!

And I know you'll want to know too!

I wonder if there's a cigar and a blue Gap dress in the story too? Hee hee!

Jen has graciously offered to give away a copy here to one winner (US residents only.) And guess what? I have an EXTRA copy to give away too!

Fans of Jen's who read her blog, A Moment of Jen, may have heard of her recent contest where she asked readers to submit parent travel horror stories after she had a nasty run-in with a crotchety woman on a flight. I had a story to share, so I submitted it, and Jen chose mine as one of the top 12 entries out of 400! You can read it HERE (the ninth one down, my name is there), along with the other fab winners. And because I received a signed copy from Jen, I am going to give away my Advanced Readers Copy of Fly Away Home to a winner here on MaNiC MoMMy, which means two of you have a chance to get the book here instead of just one of you.

So, leave a comment here on why you love Jen Weiner's books, and I'll pick two random winners. Sorry, but you must be in the U.S. to win! And I'll choose at the end of the week! Oh yeah, and you must leave an email address so I can contact you if you win! Thanks!

And next week, I have another great book to give away from my friend and amazing author, Trish Ryan, A Maze of Grace, so keep coming back, and who knows, maybe I'll have another story or two to share about hunting down snakes in the backyard!


And Jen, thanks for sharing your great books with us! And readers, if you didn't read Jen's short story, The Half Life, in Redbook this month, check it out! It's HOT! And the second part comes out in August!

PeaCe uP, STay CooL!

I have to admit that I'm not in love with ALL her books, but Good In Bed is still one of my all time favorite books ever. I wish they would have made a movie out of that one, rather than In Her Shoes. Maybe it's because I could identify with Cannie so much. One of my fav characters ever too.

Love her. Her books are the perfect summer read. Hot and steamy that cannot be put down. :)

Cheryl ToBiN said...

Jen Weiner is a brilliant author! I LOVE that she went to Princeton, has lived in Philly (my home), and sets some of her books there. I was hooked when I read "Good in Bed", and loved that she wrote "Certain Girls" as the sequel. I never liked murder mysteries, but "Goodnight Nobody" kept me page turning til the end! Her heroines aren't perfect, just perfectly endearing - I want them to be my neighbors.

Autumn said...

Jennifer Weiner's books have made a run-of-the-mill day memorable for me. Little Earthquakes and In Her Shoes are two that really made me forget the small peeves and nuisances for at least a few hours over a few days.

I was at my sister's house when I picked up her copy of one of Jennifer's books. Even though this type of book is one of my least favorite genres I was bored and started reading. I got so caught up in it I did not want to put the book down. There is just something about Jennifer's writing that just pulls me in.
