Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss + Giveaway

**Winner was chosen




I always loved reading Dr. Seuss's books! The wonderful pictures, the crazy stories, and interesting names were always such a joy. In my book he was a genius! So today would be his birthday if he were still alive so this post is dedicated to him! Happy Birthday Seuss! 

So as a reader there are books that touch you in a way that you can't describe. They settle in your brain and never leave. These books are the books you are glad you met. The ones that changed your life, that gave you something other then just entertainment (entertaining books will be another post). I have decided I need to share these books with you my followers. 

The List:

Harry Potter- 



No matter how had I try there is no way to not include this series. It was the very first series I read and it placed a deep hook into me which lead me to continue reading.


And because of the dog in the picture below you should read Harry Potter




The Cinderella Society- 



The simple whispers of the book was confidence.I still tell myself 'No wicked chatter' then I laugh.

When I saw this I laughed :D its so wicked 


 This book's message is one that all girls should have access to.



The Miles Between- 

A coincident? I think not! 



I have always been persistent about saying 'I don't believe in coincidences'. This book encounters this exact quote but it presented something new to me. 



Sometimes there is one fair day, where good triumphs over evil and the universe doesn't work against you in fact it works with you . 



The Book Thief- 


Sometimes there is more the past then we can understand.

I am the Messenger- 



Humans no matter how small, make a huge difference. 

I'll Be There- 

This isn't the final cover but I needed something to put here!
Things happen to make us who we are. Sure that means the bad comes with it but sometimes the bad goes away and all the good comes together at once 

The Secret Journal of Brett Colton- 



I now know it's okay to cry because this book. 



Yes weepy weepy weepy me. Before this book I didn't know that a person could be come so attached to a story as to cry because of a plot. 

To Kill A Mockingbird- 



Sometimes people who are nice get bad reps and sometimes good people do bad things for the right reason. 



Also bad people do the wrong thing for the wrong reason but karma catches up with them later.



Speak- 



You have to tell people things if you keep it locked in bad things can happen.

Shock Point-


 I learned that stepfather could be the evil one! And that testing drugs that make kids go suicidal and trying to cover it up by sending your stepdaughter never really works.


honorably  mentioned:


The Mockingbirds
Night 
Pride and Prejudice
Goose Girl
The Giver
Uglies
Flipped 
Matilda
The Riddles of Epsilon
Coraline 




So I can't send Dr. Seuss a birthday present on account of him not being among the living (although he could come back as a zombie! That would be fun), instead I am gonna give a present to one of you! A bundle of books, novels galore (okay not many but a few of my favorites) for one lucky follower ! 

What's in the prize pack?


The winner gets to choose three of the following:
-The Mockingbirds 
-You Killed Wesley Payne
-Inside Out
-Wither
-The Demon Trappers Daughter

Rules: 
*Hands down must be a follower 
*You must be 13 years of age or older 
*US only 
*I will choose one (1) winner. 
*Only one entry  
*You MUST fill out this FORM
*Due to moving the end date is questionable and might change but for now I am shooting for March 30th, 2011.

just sayin,
