On the Spot Giveaway #5

Time to change things up!
For all the previous On the Spot giveaways, you only needed to submit your name and email.  In order to win the 5th prize, you need to leave your name, email, AND the title of a book you enjoyed and would suggest I read.  I'm looking for more summer reads because I have been DEVOURING the books I picked up at the library and will very shortly need some new material. I'd love any and all book suggestions!  Thanks :)

(If you are a book-hater or otherwise completely incapable of coming up with a half-decent book title, you can, of course, still enter).

As you know, all day today, there have been On the Spot prizes awarded every two hours.  Check back at 7:00 & 9:00 (Eastern Standard Time) for the final two prizes!
Thanks for helping me celebrate today, everyone!

The fifth On the Spot prize today is a bottle of 
the beloved OPI Parlez Vous OPI? nail polish.  
A gorgeous neutral taupe/lilac, described and modeled by my friend, Liz, HERE .

To enter, simply fill in the form below with your name and email address.
All entries must be received by 6:45 PM, as the winner will be announced at 7:00 PM, along with the next On the Spot giveaway (only two left!).

How serendipitous that giveaway #5 comes at 5:00 :)

Congratulations to our On the Spot #5 winner...

I went through a BUNCH of books last summer while on maternity leave. I think my favorite of the bunch was My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult (the book was 100x better than the movie).

As Megan suggested, all of Jodi Picoult's books are great! I think I'm almost done with her whole collection. In addition, if you have not read it yet, I would suggest The Time Traveler's Wife, made me cry (and I'm known not to cry easily).

I haven't been reading a lot but from the past books that I can remember I really enjoyed Amy Tan's books.

Thanks for the suggestions, ladies!! I haven't read much Jodi Picoult, but my mom as a few - I'll check for them! I loved the Time Traveler's Wife - my sister actually just read that! And Mandy, I am a HUGE HUGE Amy Tan fan - I have read all of her books at least twice!! :D Thanks for all the suggestions!

I left my suggestion on the form with my name and is Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

I don't know if you read this, but I recently read The Rabbit series by John Updike (I think there's three)
They were incredible. A little heavy, but beautifully written. I think a group of authors rated the series in the top ten books of the 20th century?

I really reccomend them. :)

I've polished off all 10 available Sookie Stackhouse Novels by Charlaine Harris. The HBO series True Blood is based off them. If you want to know more, email me!! :D
I can't wait for her to write another!
