Get Green with Envy Over Your Next Favorite Book!

I know that everyone tells you not to judge a book by it's cover, and I totally agree with that!  But sometimes you just have to grab a book because the cover is screaming to you to be picked up!!  So today, on this greenest of holidays, I am encouraging you to come to the Library to pick out a book with a GREEN cover on it!  Who knows???  Maybe you'll hit the book jackpot and find your next favorite book!

Here are just a few titles with green covers that you might be interested in....
And as you can see from my photo...there are a ton more green books to choose from!  Happy St. Patrick's Day, and may the luck of the Irish be with you when choosing your next favorite book!

I Heart Books WINNERS! - Teen Winter Reading 2015

The time has finally arrived!  I gave you two and a half months to read, write and review the teen books you are reading right now for prizes, and many of you answered the call.  However, only 5 of you could win.  I just wanted to acknowledge the five winners of this year's Teen Winter Reading program and thank all the rest of the participants for making this year better than ever!

The winners of the 2014-2015 I Heart Books Teen Winter Reading Program are:
  1. Gabriella R.
  2. Erica C
  3. Amelia C.
  4. Diya T.
  5. Monica W.
For the rest of you who participated but didn't have your name picked, THANK YOU!  Even if you didn't win, I loved reading your reviews and finding out what you are reading now.  You may even see that some of your reviews have been posted on the Teens Review Teen Lit Blog.  If you don't see your review up there, be patient!  I like to spread out the reviews, so I only post them once a week (every Friday, in case you want to make it a habit of checking out the review weekly!).  Make sure to go back through past posts of the blog too!  I've been posting your reviews since August of 2011, so check it out!

Again, I want to thank everyone that participated this year, and I encourage you to continue to send through your reviews, even though the program is over.  If you read something GREAT, let me know!  I'm always looking for new titles to try out, and I get a lot of my "to read" list from you guys.
