Lenore is running two contests with Penguin where you can win a whole bunch of books at once:
- “Reality books”. I didn’t know what this meant (was picturing some book version of Big Brother — a show I’ve never seen but whose recaps I followed religiously on Television Without Pity for a time), although given how my prior humiliation at the hands of the phrase “realistic narrative” is burnt into my brain, I should’ve.
Awesomest title: I AM A GENIUS OF UNSPEAKABLE EVIL AND I WANT TO BE YOUR CLASS PRESIDENT. I (successfully) ran for student council recently, which is a long and strange story that we won’t get into, and I am now so disappointed that this was not my campaign slogan.
- Fantasy books. All of these books from both contests are things I would totally read. Although maybe I should be ashamed to admit publicly that I would totally go for BETRAYAL OF NATALIE HARGROVE on the basis of its description, “Cruel Intentions meets MacBeth.” Whatever, dudes, it’s summer! Reading in the park!!!
