Giveaway of Signed Maureen Johnson Books (including ARC)

Yeah. Another giveaway. I've actually been hanging on to these for a while. I got new bookcases recently and shelved all the books I'd been keeping in dumb piles on the floor and on my dining room table and on my nightstand and on my mini fridge and in boxes and on a wicker chair and also in my daughter's bedroom. So anyway, once I shelved them I promptly forgot about them. So, today I went browsing through the shelves and started reading Maureen Johnson's newest book THE NAME OF THE STAR. I should probably mention this is my first Maureen book and also that several pages in I kissed the cover and said, "Where have you been all my life, Maureen?" The story so far (about half way in) is pretty awesome, but mostly it's the voice that's grabbed me. I don't think I've been this in love with just a voice since John Green. And there's the setting, too, which takes me back to London, one of my favorite places on Earth, and in the form of an American who's come to live (reminding me so vividly of my first hilarious days of my life abroad).

Yeah. I will likely finish this book tonight (It's currently almost 10 PM). Review to come soon.

So.

Anyway.

I'd like to share my discovery of Maureen with others in the form of ARCage and Signed bookage. Here's what's up for grabs today:
