#BIR2010 - Book Spotlight & Giveaway: Secondhand Charm & My Ridiculous Romantic Obsession

Are you ready for another great giveaway? Now we are offering you a chance to win two really great books: My Ridiculous Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite and Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry. Read below to get information on the books and to enter. :-)

My Ridiculous Romantic Obsessions by Becca Wilhite
Published by: Shadow Mountain

Book summary: Sarah Howard's first year at the university is everything and nothing she expected especially when a very cute boy named Ben in her Art History class starts to show interest in her.

Sarah feels like she's an average, normal, everyday girl. So, when Ben (to whom she secretly refers as Adonis because she thinks he could be a Greek god) begins to take interest in her, Sarah is in denial. For one thing, last year she was deeply crushed and humiliated by Jesse James a guy who she thought liked her.

She's determined not to get burned again. But in her heart of hearts, what she really wants is a Jane Austen kind of romance. Ridiculous, right? That kind of romance doesn t exist anymore . . . or does it? Sarah is smart and fun to be around and even pretty, despite her Medusa-like red curls. She even plays the guitar. (So does Ben!) Yes, Sarah is everything Ben has wanted. He's crazy for her, but Sarah is just not getting it. She's playing hard to get, and if she s not careful, she s going to lose a real hot gentleman -- her 21st-century Mr. Darcy.

Secondhand Charm by Julie Berry
Release Date: October 12, 2010
Publisher: Bloomsbury USA Children's Books

Book Summary: (from Bloomsbury) In a secluded village, magic sparkles on the edges of the forest. There, a young girl named Evie possesses unusually strong powers as a healer. A gypsy's charms—no more than trinkets when worn by others—are remarkably potent when Evie ties them around her neck. Her talents, and charms, have not escaped the notice of the shy stonemason's apprentice. But Evie wants more than a quiet village and the boy next-door. When the young king's carriage arrives one day, and his footman has fallen ill, Evie might just get her chance after all . . .
