Au Revoir, summer… Bonjour, 8th grade


As our summer draws to an end, Katertot is excited to begin her new journey into the 8th grade. I can't believe my BABY CHILD is going to be an 8th grader!! To celebrate this milestone, we would like to give away some great books that are set in or around school.

First up and the reason we southern gals are butchering the beautiful French language in our post’s title: Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Katertot hasn’t read this one, and, while I’m not a big fan of contemporaries, I enjoyed this book... and, especially, Etienne St. Clair.

Anna and the French Kiss

Next up is the first book of a series that neither of us have read, but it is definitely on my TBR list:

Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)

Vampire Academy (#1) by Richelle Mead. Not sure this one is Katertot-approved, but I’ll soon find out. I’ve been hearing a lot about this series and Dimitri, in particular, so I ordered one copy for myself and one for a giveaway winner, too!

It’s just not a giveaway for me if I can’t throw in a zombie book. Here’s one about zombies trying to get into a school! Much better excuse than “the dog ate my homework.” How could we not add This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers to the loot bag?
This is Not a Test

Last, but certainly not least, is our BIGGEST prize and Katertot’s all-time favorite series! Since she wishes she was going to Hogwarts, she is giving away the ENTIRE Harry Potter series in a beautiful boxed set:

And who wouldn't want to do homework with this incredibly cool Gryffindor pen?

  1. Um, super awesome contest, ladies! I wish I could go to Hogwarts, too, Katertot! :D Good luck in 8th grade! Love you both bunches and bunches!

  2. All those delicious, delicious books... what more, YOU'RE BACK!!! OMG that's the best part! I missed you all kinds of crazy. And your baby's in 8th grade, major aww moment. I can't even remember myself in 8th grade... not sure if it was so horrific the memories have been suppressed or if it was so boring I just blocked it out. Nevertheless, little tot will have a blast. I know it. She's going to rock those halls. ;-)
