If you haven't heard about Rock the Drop, click here! It's basically a day to support and celebrate Teen Lit Day, where you leave a YA book somewhere for a reader to find, pick up and enjoy. And it is AMAZING.
I was a last minute participant as I wasn't sure of my schedule for the day, thus I was entirely unprepared for it - but I managed to scrounge up a few of my loved-and-ready-to-let-go books; as well as ran out to purchase a few shiny new ones, too. As I'm sure most book bloggers are, I believe strongly and am passionate about reading and education, especially in the teenage years; so I didn't mind dropping some dollars to go towards this :)
Seriously, I'm jealous of whoever picked up some of these - I haven't read two of them, and I don't own my own copies of some!
These are the books I dropped!
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants - Ann Brashares
Divergent - Veronica Roth
The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins
The Maze Runner - James Dashner
Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher
And here they are, all around my sleepy suburb in North-ish San Diego :) I wanted to go to parts that were a little less affluent than my area, but I didn't have the time. Next year!
|The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants made it to a Starbucks chair.|
|The freshman steps at the SE corner of my old high school.
I swung by an hour after my drop and it was already gone!
|The Maze Runner at a local Boys & Girls club basketball courts.
Friends were here 3 hours after my drop and said it was gone!
|Thirteen Reasons Why riding a ginormous turtle statue behind one of the local libraries!|
|Divergent chills in the sunshine behind a fountain outside a BN, Jamba Juice and Claire's.|
|And my last drop, the Hunger Games by the fire pit outside my favourite Coffee Bean.
Seriously, most of my blog posts are done here. Love it.
I definitely look forward to next year and doing this again! Did you Rock the Drop? Find any around your town?
