I named my blog Books & Lemonade because I think one of the most relaxing things is sitting outside reading a good book and drinking some ice-cold lemonade ;)

Okay... Let's Do A New, BETTER Contest

So, Fabricated Friday (FF) was fun for the moment I guess but I just wasn't feeling it. So, I came up with a NEW contest. This one I think will be more fun and also more a challenge! Plus, you have more of a chance of winning since in FF, after two people wrote "fabrication" or "truth" it was basically over. But anyway, here's the new contest:

This contest will be called Guess the Title. I will post a line or two from a random book on my bookshelf (so keep in mind it will be a Young Adult novel) and you guys have to guess which book it comes from. So, you will be guessing the title from which the line(s) comes from. Now, I know that will be impossibly hard considering I have about a bajillion books and you have no idea exactly which ones I have. So, I will post ten book titles that you can choose from. Meaning, the line(s) I post will be from one of those books. All you have to do is guess, or if you are like me and a big bookworm and know lines from your favorite books or whatever, you may just know. Or, if you really want to win, I guess, you may have all of these books and go search through all of them until you find the answer. If you're, you know, that dedicated to the contest :)

Now, the catch is that once you have posted your answer in the comments, you have entered. BUT, even if you are the first one to guess the right title, you haven't necessarily won. If there is only one person that says the right title, well, then they automatically win. But if more than one post the correct title, than I will draw a name out of a hat or something. So you can see that it's not an automatically determined winner (usually). You guys have until next Wednesday to post your answer. On Wednesday I will post the winner and their award (it may just be a picture to put on your blog, sorry guys. I don't exactly have anything cool to give away yet...) So, are you ready? Here's the line below!

"I was, like, relieved when he cheated on me. I wanted a good reason to break up with him, and he gave me one."

Which book was the line above from? Here are your titles to guess from (by the way, all the books below are definitely recommended reads!):
-Mermaid Park by Beth Mayall
-Last Christmas by Kate Brian
-Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
-Poseur: The Good, the Fab, and the Ugly by Rachel Maude
-Avalon High by Meg Cabot
-Bratfest at Tiffany's by Lisi Harrison
-Classic by Cecily von Ziegesar
-The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han
-Wicked by Sara Shepard
-Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad

Remember, you have until Wednesday! Happy reading (and guessing!) you guys and I will post a review of the final two books in The It Girl series probably on Monday :)
