Contest: Win The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009 |

Yvonne Prinz was so nice that she is letting me host a contest for an ARC of The Vinyl Princess! My sister was supposed to host this contest as well but she has an author week going on, so I guess I'm the only one. One person will get to read The Vinyl Princess early! Here's a little something about it:

Summer is here, and 16-year-old Allie, a self-professed music geek, is exactly where she wants to be: working full-time at Berkeley’s ultra-cool Bob and Bob Records. There, Allie can spend her days bantering with the street people, talking the talk with the staff, shepherding the uncool bridge-and-tunnel shoppers, all the while blissfully surrounded by music, music, music. It’s the perfect setup for her to develop her secret identity as The Vinyl Princess, author of both a brand-new zine and blog. From the safety of her favourite place on earth, Allie is poised to have it all: love, music and blogging.

Her mother, though, is actually the one getting the dates, and business at Allie’s beloved record store is becoming dangerously slow—not to mention that there have been a string of robberies in the neighbourhood. At least her blog seems to be gaining interest, one vinyl junkie at a time….

It's about blogging as well, so that's awesome!

+2 Yvonne and I don't always have a pen to write! I go crazy without one.

My favorite song of the moment is Impossible to Love You by JoJo. It was weird at first with all these beats but I can't stop listening to the song. The song doesn't stick in my head, which is weird because all songs I've listened to in my life stick like super glue.

+2 I learned that she's Candian and also that she's one of those crazy people that has wanted to be a writer since basically she was born.

And I have to pick a favorite song? Seriously? That might just be impossible for me. Can I go with 5? I really can't give them an order
Doot Da Doot by the Unlovables
One for the Razorbacks by Green Day
She Drives me Crazy by the Fine Young Cannibals
Punk Rock Girl by the Dead Milkmen
Boobarella by the Queers
And ohman, I actually have to go with 6, since I also love
I've Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison

I hope this still counts as an entry, even though I gave 6 songs. It was just too hard.
