Yep, it's that time again. Happens every week, as a matter of fact. Monday! It's actually my spring break this week, so I'm really excited. My only goal is to spend the entire week in bed. I am a huge believer in staying in bed. However, I won't necessarily be sleeping. There is lots to do from a bed, like reading and tweeting and wasting my life being unproductive. But anyway. Magic Monday. Right.

I can't believe how much I like being with him now, and I have to know if the feeling's mutual. I take a deep breath. "You know, we don't have to fight for the armrest. I think we've learned how to share."

So, there you go. Your excerpt for the week. I'll have you know that I absolutely adored this book. A large part of that is likely to be due to Seth. Sexy, sexy Seth. I would totally get it on with him. Not that you, ahem, needed to know that. So let's move on, shall we?

All you have to do to enter is fill out the handy little rafflecopter. Of course, you do have to read my giveaway guidelines if you have not already done so as well.

Good luck to you, my darling roses! I love you guys so ridiculously much, you know that? Well, I do. Have a happy week!



  1. This is the first I have heard of TRANSPARENT. It does look like a great read thank you.

  2. It looks like such a good book! Thanks for the giveaway :D

  3. Thanks for this! I'm loving this cover and the concept of it as well.. hope you have a fabulous Spring Break!! :)

  4. sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing ;)

  5. I liked Transparent a lot! It wasn't a really amazing book, necessarily, but it was still really awesome. The invisibility thing was really catchy, too. Even though it's been overrused with the ghost idea nowadays. Sighs. I think I'm on a Harper Teen slump. This is bad.

  6. An AMAZING cover, and it just sounds so stinkin good! I seriously hope that the insides are as kick ass as the outside! Thank you for yet another Magic Monday. Indeed, magic it is!
