It's time to think about Summer Reading --- and we aren't talking about the list of books you may have received for Required Summer Reading from school. What we are talking about are the kinds of books that you are glad you now have time to kick back and enjoy. The way we see it, it wouldn't be summer without sun, surf and great reading. You supply the beach chair and the sunblock, and we'll provide the fantastic fiction in our First Annual Teenreads.com Beach Bag of Books Contest.
From May 21st through July 6th, you can enter to win a "Teenreads.com Beach Bag of Books." Five winners each will receive a beach bag that includes 10 books --- EVIL GENIUS by Catherine Jinks; FLAWLESS: A Pretty Little Liars Novel by Sara Shepard; INSIDE THE MIND OF GIDEON RAYBURN by Sarah Miller; KISS & BLOG by Alyson Noel; LOVE, CAJUN STYLE by Diane Les Becquets; MARKED: A House of Night Novel by P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast; PANTS ON FIRE by Meg Cabot; SPECIAL TOPICS IN CALAMITY PHYSICS by Marisha Pessl; SUMMER INTERN by Carrie Karasyov and Jill Kargman; and SUN-KISSED: The Au Pairs #3 by Melissa de la Cruz. Along with the books, winners will find their oversized beach bag stocked with the coolest summer goodies --- including a turquoise and red striped towel with matching flip-flops, a beach ball that's actually a supersoft and cushy pillow, a green suede journal for summer writing, a deck of Uno cards, a set of dominoes, assorted fruit-flavored candies and lemonade mix (not pictured), as well as an EVIL GENIUS tote bag, t-shirt and button.

Just checked Stephenie Meyer's site this morning and noticed she has more t-shirts up for sale. I know lots of you will be interested, so here's the link to that. She also mentions that the third book, Eclipse, will be out in late August.
In other news, Libba Bray is hard at work to the third book in the Great and Terrible Beauty series (trilogy?), which will be called The Sweet and Far Thing (due out late September).
