The Waiting is the Hardest Part (What I will do for a Lola ARC)

I know time flies, but when you're eagerly waiting for something specific, it just inches along. You all know how IN LURVE I am with Anna and the French Kiss by the lovely Stephanie Perkins, and the ARC buzz for Lola and the Boy Next Door is extremely positive. Apparently the ARCs were at ALA last week, and I'm SO JEALOUS of those of you that snagged yourself an early copy (especially because I was THIS close to going, and didn't).

I will TRADE you when you're done reading it. PLEASE SOMEONE! Don't make me beg (Okay, so maybe I just did)! I'm sure I have something around here worth your while. An ARC of Jeff Hirsch's The Eleventh Plague, perhaps?? Releases in September.

AND I JUST FOUND OUT that I WON the ARC to Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver!!! Thank you Claire from Builder of Worlds! This baby won't be out until October!

Liesl & Po

I will be more than willing to pass this along after I've read it... IN EXCHANGE for a Lola ARC. :) 

Or perhaps you are in need of sprucing up your blog? I can make you a custom header or button!! 

What say you?! Any takers?!!


  1. LOL you are so funny! Yes Lola was at ALA!!!

  2. Dude, I was so close to going to ALA, too! Wish I could have gone and snagged a copy myself. :(

  3. I'm trying to score an ARC of Lola from my sales rep at Penguin. If I succeed, I plan to use it as a giveaway. Stay tuned!

  4. Oh my goodness, I cannot wait for Lola! Anna is one of my fave books of all time, and Lola looks adorable!

  5. Sigh. Guess we're all in the same boat. :)

  6. I was lucky to snag a copy. A Penguin sales friend reserved a copy for me. I'll likely do a giveaway of LOLA soon. So perhaps then...

    Good luck in your search!

    (Also, The Eleventh Plague is awesome!!)

  7. Sorry, I wish I had a LOLA to give you, but I don't. :( I'm getting my very first ARC ever pretty soon -- Caroline Starr Rose's MAY B. I'm so excited. :)


  8. I can totally commiserate with wanting an ARC so, so badly you'd do (almost) anything for it. Good luck with getting LOLA!

  9. OMG, I wish I had it to trade. It is my "it" book for this year. I've been entering every contest for it I can find, but no luck so far. Hopefully, you'll be successful in your quest.

  10. I can't wait to read LOLA.

    I was at ALA but refrained from getting any books. I have a mountain of paperbacks already. I'm waiting for the ebook of this, which I'm sure will be available since I read ANNA on Kindle.
