Dear Cassie Read-Along!!

I am so excited to be helping out with the Dear Cassie Read-Along! I have taken part in a few read-alongs, but have never been one of the hosts of ones, but Lisa Burstein is fabulous and her books are amazing. What better book to help out with a read-along with than Dear Cassie!! Lisa has organized this read-along. Also helping out with the read-along is Andrea from The Bookish Babe

So what does a read along mean? It means you and other people read Dear Cassie at the same time on a schedule. Maybe you've already read it. Maybe it's been waiting on your shelf or e-reader, or maybe you've been meaning to read it. Whatever the case- now you can read it and WIN PRIZES and HAVE FUN!

How do you participate? Lots of ways. 
  • You can comment on discussions on the book page on Goodreads:  
  •  You can tweet you favorite lines, passages, characters using #CassieReadAlong or take photos of favorite passages/quotes, or of where the book is while you read, etc.
  • You can shout-out your daily "fucks" count, or favorite use of swear word.
AND, that's not all, each tweet you send or discussion you start or respond to enters you to WIN your choice of 5, 3 or 1 - Entangled Teen Digital Books!

3 Lucky Winners!

It all ends with a twitter chat hosted by Teen Librarian Toolbox on May 1st, where you get to tweet with other readers and ask Lisa questions!

Week of April 8th- Chapters 8-15
Week of April 15th- Chapters 15-22

If you haven't heard of the book (it's okay, I forgive you) I will put the info below with the gorgeous cover!!

What if the last place you should fall in love is the first place that you do?

You’d think getting sent to Turning Pines Wilderness Camp for a month-long rehabilitation “retreat” and being forced to re-live it in this journal would be the worst thing that’s ever happened to me.

You’d be wrong.

There’s the reason I was sent to Turning Pines in the first place: I got arrested. On prom night. With my two best friends, who I haven’t talked to since and probably never will again. And then there’s the real reason I was sent here. The thing I can’t talk about with the guy I can’t even think about.

What if the moment you’ve closed yourself off is the moment you start to break open?

But there’s this guy here. Ben. And the more I swear he won’t—he can’t—the deeper under my skin he’s getting. After the thing that happened, I promised I’d never fall for another boy’s lies.

And yet I can’t help but wonder…what if?

And, I also have the fabulous book trailer to share with you too!!

I hope to see many of you joining the read-along!


  1. In really excited to be doing this with you, Amy!

    1. I'm excited too. I've never helped with a read-along before, but I'm sure it's going to be tons of fun!

  2. I wish I had read the others so I could do this with you all. Have fun!

    1. You don't need to have read the other books. This can be read as a standalone. You should join us!!

  3. If I didn't have so much on my plate I would totally participate!

  4. Haven't read it but it's on my list. I'll try to sneak in those chapters. Thanks for hosting.

  5. Ahh, I should join and it would force me to finally read the book! LOL


My blog is now an award free zone. I really appreciate the thought, but stopping by is reward enough for me. Thank you so much!!

I love comments! I will try to respond to as many as I can. I read every one of them, even if I do not respond to them all.
