Happy Teen Read Week

We’re midway through Teen Read Week (October 17-23).  I hope everyone has had time to do some reading this week — just for fun.  No, you say?  Then why not take a few minutes right now?  Drop whatever you’re doing, and take just 30 minutes, or even 20, or 15 to read something you enjoy!

It doesn’t have to be a book.  Books are great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s also fun to read magazines and the Onion.

If you do have time to read a book, please consider sharing a brief review here.  Reviewers are entered in a drawing for a book store gift card!

Teen Ink Movie Review Contest – Twilight

Actor Robert Pattinson appeared recently at Orland Square Mall south of Chicago.  Read about his adventures in this article.

Here’s another story about fans  who were turned away from the event.

Would you have waited overnight for a chance to meet Pattinson?  Would you be upset if you were turned away?

The Twilight movie opens nationwide on November 21. 

If you’re planning to see it anyway, then why not write a review?  From Betsy, at Teen Ink Magazine:

Hey all:

We’re holding a “Twilight” movie review contest, and we want you to participate whether you’re a lover or a hater! The writer of the best review (positive or negative) will receive their choice of a Twilight companion book or a Teen Ink book. You’ll also receive a year’s subscription to Teen Ink Magazine, and your review will be seriously considered for publication!

-Betsy

The contest deadline is December 1st.  Post your review (positive or negative) on Facebook, or email it to betsy (at) teenink.com.

You can also post your movie reviews at the NPLD website.  Local reviewers are entered in a monthly prize drawing!

Now that Breaking Dawn has finally debuted, what do you think?  Have you finished reading it yet?  How long did it take? Is it predictable?  Shocking?  What do you think of the ending?  Did you love it?  Hate it?

If you’ve read it, submit your review at our website for a chance to win free stuff!
