The Great Big THE VIOLETS OF MARCH/Jodi Picoult Contest!

I love summer reading, which is why I’m giving away a signed copy of my novel, The Violets of March to one lucky winner—along with a box of goodies (some of my favorite gourmet chocolate from Theo in Seattle and a Starbucks gift card!).

To enter, all you have to do is two things:

a.) Leave a comment below telling me what you’re reading this summer, or excited to read this summer, and

b.) Head on over to Jodi Picoult’s brand new official Facebook page and click “like” (she’s new to Facebook so let’s welcome her! She also happens to be one of my very favorite authors whose lovely quote is on the cover of my novel!)

You get an extra entry for tweeting about this contest, posting on your Facebook page with the link and “liking” my Facebook page (just let me know in your comment that you did this!). All entries will be tallied and a winner chosen at random next week. (Can’t wait to be picked as a winner? You can also order the book here, or find it at your favorite independent bookstore!)

And, be sure to watch the book trailer!

Thank you for playing—and for reading! Happy summer to all!

    I did all 3! I liked Jodi Picoult on facebook, I liked you on Facebook, and I added this to my facebook feed.

    I read Violets on my iPad so a hard copy would be wonderful!

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Julie Buxbaum’s “After You” and Laura Dave’s “The Divorce Party.” I have plans to read Ellen Sussman’s “French Lessons” and Laura Dave’s “The First Husband.”
    I love summer reading!!
    I did all 3 requests!!

    I read Violets on Nook, but like Missy, would love a hard copy. I’m reading Helen Simonson’s MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND and just finished reading an ARC by Keith Cronin–ME, AGAIN–that comes out in September. Super funny and touching! Also read THE HUNGER GAMES last week and am wondering why I waited so long. Can’t wait to get the next in the trilogy.

    I liked Jodi Picoult on Facebook! I’ll put a word about your contest on our What Women Write Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/pages/What-Women-Write/108859799150731?ref=ts

    I cannot wait to read this book. We just got married and I hardly read at all while wedding planning so I’m really looking forward to getting back into reading and losing myself in the worlds that the amazing authors create. I’m 2 books behind on Jodi Picoult, I’ve read them all except her 2 most recent so I’ll be reading House Rules and Sing You Home, as well as The Violets of March. I’m also looking forward to Yakuza Moon. I just finished reading The Forgotten Garden which was a fantastic story!!!

I’m a teacher, so I still have a few weeks left to read! There is nothing better than starting a new book, and nothing in the world sadder than when you finish a GREAT one!! I would be the happiest lady in the world to win a signed copy of your new book! Please consider me!

I have read Handle with Care at least 15 times already but I cant get over how absolutely touching and how it melts my heart each time. I just finished reading Sing You Home and it motivated me to speak out in my hometown of Providence. I loved how it hit home with me not only being set in my area, but tugging at my heart strings of my personal experiences.

It was the tale of three high school students, all three different in the ways they stand out to their peers, and their memories growing up together. I am presently reading The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown. I have read all of Jodi Picoult’s books! Each one tackles a different social issue from every angle.

    Hi! I did all three – I already “liked” Jodi Picoult so that was easy. I liked your page and posted this link on my FB page.

    I’m in a Master’s of Elementary and Special Education program right now so reading for leisure doesn’t happen as often as I like; however, I’m a book junkie! So far this summer, I’ve read What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, the latest book in the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series by Charlaine Harris and Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult. Right now I’m reading Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin (HBO series). I’m always looking for new books to read – can’t wait to read yours!

Since it’s quite hard to get books where I live, so it’d be great to win a book, an autographed one at that! Wishing you success for your future stories!

    First, I will be sure to “like” you on Facebook, and I’ll post this as my status as well. Jodi Picoult has been my favorite author for years. I have already liked her on Facebook, and I finished Sing You Home 4 days after I started it. I loved that there was a CD with it, too! I live in Boston, and I was so bummed I couldn’t make it to either of her book signings that week because I was away for the week. I always get her books the day they come out, and even though I have a kindle I still buy the hard copies. I am excited to start reading The Violets of March, but so far this summer I have read Water for Elephants, The Help, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and now I’m beginning A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. I truly idolize Jodi Picoult, and I am glad to know a book she recommends!

    I recently finished reading “Sisters” by Rosamund Lupton – It was a great read throughout and, best of all, had a strong end (many books seem to fall short on that). Also just finished Tess Gerritsen’s “The Silent Girl” – another that didn’t disappoint. And now, a slightly different kind of read – “Miss New India,” by Bharati Mukherjee, which is shaping up to be another strong one.

    Looking forward to reading your novel and happy to welcome Ms. Picoult (a fellow LIer) to FB!

    First, I have “liked” you on Facebook, and I will put this as my status as soon as I finish posting this comment. Jodi Picoult has been my favorite author for years, and even though I have a kindle now, I still buy all of her hard-cover books. I have already added her as my favorite author in Facabook. I finished Sing You Home 4 days after it came out. I loved that she included a CD with it! I live in Boston, and I was bummed I couldn’t go to either of her signings or readings she had because I was on vacation for the week. So far this summer I have read Water for Elephants, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and The Help. I am currently reading A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard. I am excited to hear about The Violets of March, and I plan to make that my next read. I truly idolize Jodi Picoult, and I am glad to know of a book she recommends!

    “Sunset Park” by Paul Auster
    “One Moment, One Morning” by Sarah Rayner
    “Where Rainbows end” by Cecelia Ahern
    & right now I’m reading “The Notebook” by Nicholas Sparks.
    “Dear John” & “The Last Song” by Nicholas Sparks, “Handle with Care” by Jodi Picoult”, “61 Hours” by Lee Child, “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova and another novel by Paul Auster are on my summer list yet and I’d LOVE to add your novel!! I haven’t heard of you yet, but I LOVE Jodi Picoult and since I do, I try to order all of her books and if your books are as good as I think they might be….I’m gonna read ALL your books, too! 🙂

    I can still remember the first time I read a book by Jodi Picoult. I was working in alaska for my first summer as a fisheries research technician. The first one I ever read was “The Pact” since then I have become addicted to her books! This summer I plan on reading all of her books again starting with “Picture Perfect” and working my way through. I own all of her books so far and love to read them over and over! Especially since I became sickly! I was diagnosed with a disease similar to MS a few years ago, and sadly it takes my eyesight at times. Being left blind is horrible! I hate facing what it causes me. Luckily I have books on my Kindle so I can listen to them when I cannot see! I cannot wait to read The Violets of March!!!

    This summer I’ve chosen to grab books by debut authors/novels to feed something new to my brain. I love sequels and of course, my favorite authors and genres (like Jodi!). But there are just so many new authors that are getting wonderful recognition, I can’t help myself but jump on the bandwagon!

    I’ve already picked up a few, including The Violets of March (how could I not?!) and Please Look After Mom by Kyung-sook Shin, and hope to be grabbing more as the summer rolls along. =)

    Stay cool and many blessings on the debut! =)

The Help is a great read and I look foward to watching the movie. I finished up the latest No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency book last week, am just about done the last Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ Sisterhood Everlasting and have Lynn Griffin’s Sea Escape lined up for my next read.

    Hi I’ve done the first two things required and come across your blog from Ms Picoult’s status on her facebook page.

    With all honesty I’ve never read any of your novel. I am now in the middle my summer holiday after almost 2 long years of tiring medic course (I am a Malaysian studying in UK university).

    I failed my assignment miserably due to my poor written English and is spending over a month amending it hoping to get to the clinical year commencing this August.

    I’ve read “Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother” by Xinran and it really is an inspiring book about women in China who have to abandon their newly-born daughters due to the sociopolitical pressure. Heartbreaking is how I shall describe the book and I definitely recommend it to everyone out there.

    I have just finished with my assignment and went to my local bookstore today to find a novel that will suit my liking. Unfortunately the books they have are all pretty outdated and I went home empty handed. I am really looking forward to read this wonderful novel of yours as a getaway from the boring factual stuff I’ve been reading at school.

A cool thing we’re doing in our house – my husband, the kids and I are all keeping a list of what we’re reading, and how we rate each book, then before school starts up we have to tell the rest of the family which book we liked the best, and why. Trying to keep the tweens reading over the summer, and this seems to be working out great. I’ve been getting into some new authors – and have been re-reading some of Jodi’s since I’ve read them all!

Nicholas Sparks, Iris Johansen, Elin Hilderbrand, Jodi Picoult, Susan Wiggs, Karen Slaughter, Luanne Rice, Audrey Niffenegger, Lisa Jackson, Heather Graham, Lisa Gardner, Barbara Delinsky, Tedd Dekker, John Grisham, Sandra Brown, C.J Box, Ann Brashares, & Cecelia Ahern to name a few.

    I am reading everything I can get my hands! I make sure to read at least 3 books a week. I read one book by various “new to me” authors, and then one Jodi Picoult and one Nicholas Sparks book each week – Vanishing Acts and Safe Haven were read this week. Of course, in anticipation of the movie, I had to reread The Help, and Columbine by Dave Cullen was an interesting read, as well. I will be sure to make Violets of March my next new author!

This is really helping me, since my daughter of only 27 was killed earlier this spring in a accident. She lived life to the fullest, but it is hard to live life with out her and this is helping. When I am not reading that book I started to read, “cutting for stone” by Abraham Verghese. Just started that one last evening so don’t have much to review yet.

    I am at GS camp for the summer (in Germany and Italy). I brought one book with me “Songs of the Humpback Whale” to read on the long plane ride. I have now read it three times. I signed up to be able to read books from my library online while at camp and sadly cannot get any books online. I have been gone since June 7 and won’t return home until August 8. So, I have only been able to read one book this summer and that is very hard on me since I usually read 6-10 books a month during the summer. I now have a long list of books to read when I get home. I will definitely “like” your facebook page and “like” Jodi’s also. As far as “tweeting” goes – can’t do that from here. Don’t even have a cell phone.

My other problem is…trying to hold off from buying Jodi’s new novel instead of waiting to see if I have one a signed copy:)x

    Sarah… I’ve been a devotee of Jodi Picoult when my favorite cousin introduced me to her writings. Since my cousin has purchased a KINDLE, however, I no longer can borrow new fiction there. SO… I headed to the Keene Public Library in Keene, NH and picked up Joy Fielding’s MISSING PIECES, Janet Evanovich’s ONE FOR THE MONEY and William Faulkner’s INTRUDER IN THE DUST. THE VIOLETS OF MARCH would be a wonderful gift. If I fall in love with your writing (as I did with Jodi) I will seek out all your works as I tend to do with authors who capture my imagination. Other favorites are Amy Tan, Joseph Heller and Archer Mayor who I enjoy bantering with at book talks. Thanks for considering me. Best of the best to you. HUGs, BJ

    I’m always interested in discovering new books! When I saw that Violets for March was on Jodi Picoult’s reading list, I knew that I had to check it out. My Summer Reading List has been pretty extensive this year. I always make a list of books I want for Christmas, but never have time to read while I’m at school. This summer I was determined to make a dent in my box of books I have left to read. So far I have read around 30 books this summer. Some of the standouts have been The Lacuna by Kingsolver, The Hunger Games series, Eat Pray Love by Gilbert, and I just recently finished House Rules by Jodi Picoult. I’m currently reading Carry Me Down by Hyland. I hope to have another dozen or so books read by the time I go back to school at the end of August. I will definitely be adding Violets of March to my list of books to read!

    Reading to me, is as important to me as breathing. If a day goes by that I was too busy to read, you can tell by my disposition that I am not a happy camper. It all started when I was about 7 years old. I come from a very dysfunctional family, and when I discovered BOOKS I found peace, love, and calm. I realize now that those books I first hid in were books about happy families. Going there with these people allowed me to cope with what I didn’t have.
    Till this day, I am grateful for all authors I have read for always being there and giving me just what I need for the moment.
    My list of books goes on and on….anything by Catherine Cookson, David McCullough right now reading his newest The Greater Journey….just finished Jodi’s House Rules….thought The Help was wonderful….and Water for Elephants I really enjoyed…also just finished The Testament…well the list goes on and on….so many books, so little time…I want to get a shirt that says this.
    So to authors one and all a hearty Thank You for your work you have made my life so pleasant….you have made me think…..you have my sincerest appreciation….keep on keeping on….

    There are a lot of good books I´ve read and want to read, for example John Boyne’s “The Absolutist”. A very touching novel I’ve just finished reading a few days ago is “Between Shades of Gray” by Ruta Sepetys.

    I´d love to read your book this summer and of course present it to my readers (I’m having a book blog).

    My summer reading list includes the six Jodi Picoult books I scored at a used bookstore. I am already a fan of her facebook page which led me to you. Her praise of your writing makes me want to read your book. I am so engrossed when reading Jodi’s novels, that I have a to take a break in between with something else. Right now, I am reading ‘Townie” by Andre Dubus III. It is a memoir set in Haverhil and Newburyport Mass. in the 70’s. I grew up and still live in that area, so it is fun reading about the local landmarks, etc. Can’t wait to read your book!

    I’m reading two great books with my book club this summer. “The Help” by Kathryn Stocket – a great read! and “The Art of Racing in the Rain”.
    I was surprised that I loved the “The Art of Racing in the Rain”. It is a story about a family told from the dog’s point of view. Typically I would not read something like this but I loved this book.

    I am reading “Wicked’ by Gregory Maguire in preparation for the musical which I will be attending at the Kennedy Center on Sunday with my grand-daughter. Next on my reading list is Jodi Picoult’s “Sing You Home”. I watched the trailer of “Violets in March” and it sounds like a good read.

It was pretty good, especially for the author’s first book, but felt the story could have evolved more in the second half. Jodi P. is one of my favorites, and I know if she is helping promote your book, you will be a new favorite also! Karen

    Our reading group just met yesterday to discuss Jodi’s House Rules, which I thought was a great book…as are all of her books.

    I am a huge Jodi Picoult fan. Own quite a few of her books. I loved 19 Minutes because I think that it hits on the spot of what could go wrong when it comes to bullying. The intro to this book looks really good, and definately something I would read. I am a constant reader and love Lauren Kate(Passion), Richelle Mead (Vampire Acadamey), Janet Evonovich (One for the Money and through to 13 that I have read), JD ROBB (Love the futuristic thriller crime scene), Nicholas Sparks (Notebook), Jean M Auel (EarthBook series). Just read Water For Elephants too and made me cry. As did Change Of Heart. That book really knocked me on my back howling in pain. Definately want to read The Violets of March, I am sure she will become on of my Favorite Authors. BOOKS are my main hobby and were my escape from being bullied as a child.

    I just started reading again last fall. It was a way for me to relax and just lose myself during a rough part in my life ( my father age 52 was diagnosed with Lung Cancer). I started reading Alice Sebold Lucky, Almost Moon and Bones then she ran out of books That’s when I found Jodi Picoult is an amazing author…my all time favorite and very first book that hooked me was Nineteen Minutes and Perfect Match! I wish I could have a summer book as you put it but I love them all! When I read I’m literally done at most 48 hours..my husband is probably suffering from insomnia due to my late night readings. I have read so far this summer recently ending with her new book Sing You Home, House Rules, Handle with Care, Change of Heart….I have read most of her books, When I run out I will have to find a new author. I liked your page and Jodi’s

    This summer my reading pile is mostly made up of Robin Hobb trilogies! Which at 800 pages + per book will keep me going well into autumn (I hate not having enough time to read these days!)

    But I might just order your book on Amazon and skip it to the top of the pile… because I adore Jodi Picoult’s novels (I own and have read them all countless times!) and last time she recommended a book I read the entire thing in less than 24 hours because it was amazing (Room by Emma Donoghue). I’ve ‘liked’ your facebook page as I’m sure I’m going to love anyone’s novel recommended by Jodi! 🙂

    I hae read so many great books this summer! Seattle weather has been MOST accommodating by being cold and rainy..so I have had lots of curl-up time. My favorite this summer has been NO GREAT MISCHIEF, by Allistair MacLeod…Wow! “all of us are better when we’re loved” . A beautiful and captivating and gritty and honest story.
    Also absolutely loved THE INVISIBLE BRIDGE by Julie Orringer. How life can be so normal and dreams are possible…and then how everything and everyone is sent spinning. Set in Budapest pre- and during WWII.
    I hae read SARAH’S KEY, A RELIABLE WIFE, and several other captivating reads….there are just so many great books! I love Jodi Piccoult’s books – all of them — but haven’t read her latest yet. Can’t wait, but struggle to pay for hardcover!
    Today I am studying Dave Ramsey’s TOTAL MONEY MAKEOVER and regretting that I didn’t learn this stuff 20 years ago! I am also enthralled by HER FEARFUL SYMMETRY, by Audrey Niffenegger, who wrote THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE (loved that one, but haven’t seen the movie…loved the book too much!) SYMMETRY is very dense and lovely and smart. Odd characters. Dopplegangers????
    I am wishing that Diana Gabledon would come out with another Outlander’s book – I’m so missing my Jamie!
    I WOULD LOVE to read THE VIOLETS OF MARCH…

    This summer I am working on a book called Somebody’s Daughter. I dont get to sit down and read as much as I used to, but when I do get the chance I devour books. The last book I read was the Virgin Suicides, which I enjoyed even tho it took me a few months to read.
