You may have noticed that I didn’t give my Best Book Ever on the contest page, but since I made you share yours, it would only be fair if I agonized over my own.
Since this is my blog, I’m not limiting myself to one. (I notice many of you didn’t limit yourselves to one either—I approve of this mini-rebellion!)
You may also notice that almost every single book that appears on my list was mentioned in the comments. That’s because my blog readers have excellent taste.
This isn’t a ranking—narrowing it down to ten was hard enough without ranking them. And if you asked me the same question tomorrow, I’d probably come up with a different list, but
AS OF THIS VERY MINUTE, my Best Books Ever are:
1) All of Austen. (My favorite changes daily. Usually it’s Emma. Or Pride & Prejudice)
2) The Truth About Forever – Sarah Dessen
3) Hunger Games —Suzanne Collins
4) Little Women — Louisa May Alcott
5) Anna & The French Kiss — Stephanie Perkins
6) The Archived — Victoria Schwab *
7) Drums, Girls, Dangerous Pie —Jordan Sonnenblick
8) Matilda — Roald Dahl
9) Anne of Green Gables — Lucy Maud Montgomery
10) Dairy Queen — Catherine Gilbert Murdock
*Yes, I’m a big, teasing, meanie. You all can’t read this until 1/13. But it is FABULOUS.
But you didn’t come here for reading recommendations (though, it’s not a bad consolation prize if you didn’t win) – without further delay, the winner of the SEND ME A SIGN pre-order and bracelet is:

And thank you to everyone who entered and shared their Best Book Ever! Thanks to you, I’ve got some new books added to my TBR.
How many times have I described a book as The Best Book Ever?**
Even more frequently since I’ve joined Short & Sweet Reviews‘ weekly blog feature of the same name.
I’ve loved participating in this every Thursday. And I’ve loved getting to know the wonderful bloggers at Short &Sweet Reviews as well as the others who share their book picks.
A related benefit is getting fabulous book recommendations every week.
Anyway — this is a long winded way to say: Their blog is turning ONE this week and I’m helping them celebrate.
For MORE sweet giveaways, head over to Short &Sweet reviews — and don’t forget to write down my codeword: LUCKY.***

** Maybe someday if I’m really lucky, someone will say these words about Send Me A Sign (Yes, I am this sappy, deal with it!)
*** This contest is U.S. only. Sorry!
