I'm a little late in awarding winners in my Kiss It contest....here's the excuse: I spent the whole weekend floating on a lake, reading ARCs of upcoming books from my new publisher. Sob - poor me. Anyhoo, here's the scoop. I stretched the entries out just a wee bit to get to THREE winners - there weren't actually 51+ official entries before June 30, but I'll pretend there were. And wow, you guys, there were some awesome book recommendations - I feel like I've been a really lazy reader. I'm so excited to read some of these recommendations. The KISS IT winners (chosen by random.org) are....

Bailey the Bookworm
Pirate Penguin Reads

Also, I have a BONUS winner...I'm going to send a signed copy of both Kiss It and Drive Me Crazy to "Babybear" (no clue what your real name is, but I'm pulling this fun fake name from your email address). "Babybear" convinced me to read Perfect Chemistry with her well-written response (this book has actually been on my to-read list for a while, but this write-up made me want to read it NOW). I thought that deserved a prize, even though Random.org did not choose you.

Here's "Babybear"'s description:

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Perfect Chemistry has become one of my favorite books. It's touches the subject of sex, drugs, alcohol and the idea of being perfect or putting on a show for others to prevent seeing the real you. I liked that this book was entertaining yet touched subjects that made the book more realistic. This book was hard to read with the idea of gangs and death of a character. It changed my idea of everything, and how even the best of people who intended the best for someone else could lose their life. It was hard to think of how one persons life could change the life of a whole group of people. And the idea of never knowing whether the love was real or not. Even with all this i love that this book had a happy ending.
