Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from Clear Eyes, Full Shelves

I had planned on writing a New Year's Day post here on CEFS, but instead I'm down with the flu--despite having gotten the flu shot. Arg!

Anyway, I wanted to wish each of you wonderful blog readers and podcast listeners the happiest of new years and the best wishes for a joyful 2015.

Verse Week Giveaway - Love & Leftovers by Sarah Tregay

Huge thanks to the lovely Sarah Tregay for her fabulous Verse Week guest post and for sponsoring a giveaway of the paperback edition of her wonderful novel in verse, Love & Leftovers.

This is one of the books that I recommend all the time, even to the verse averse. Here's the summary: 

Romantic and bittersweet, Love and Leftovers captures one girl’s experience with family, friends, and love. Dragged to New Hampshire for the summer, Marcie soon realizes that her mom has no plans for them to return to Marcie’s father in Idaho. As Marcie starts at a new school, without her ragtag group of friends called the Leftovers, a new romance heats up, but she struggles to understand what love really means.

Perfect for fans of romances like Anna and the French Kiss and those by Sarah Dessen as well as readers of poetry, Love and Leftovers is a beautiful and fresh take on love.

(The giveaway is now over. Thanks to all who entered!)

To enter, all you need to do is fill out the entry below--it's that easy!

I'll draw a random winner on May 7. 

If you've already read Love & Leftovers, we certainly appreciate your spreading the word about the giveaway on Twitter or other social media so we can encourage people to try a verse novel.
