One Day prize pack giveaway!

By Julie

A few Thursdays ago, I had the pleasure of attending a press screening for One Day, based on David Nicholls' novel (NOT by a woman, but we award a few honorary tiaras around here, ya know). I'm launching a new blog soon where I'll be reviewing what women WATCH, and will likely start off with this delightful film, which opens in theaters Friday.

That's all I'll say about the movie right now. In the meantime, we were lucky enough to score a prize pack to give away to one of our readers. All you have to do is leave a comment here on the blog telling us what your favorite beach read of the summer has been and we'll enter you in a completely random drawing.

We'll announce the winner through a post here again late Thursday. Deadline is noon Central Standard time 8/18/11! Please be sure to leave an email address or sign on in such a way that we can notify you by email or watch for the announcement so you can send us your mailing information ASAP after the announcement. (U.S. mailing addresses able to accept FedEx deliveries only, please!) We'd love if you'd let all your friends know, too! You don't have to be a regular visitor at What Women Write, but we sure hope you'll come back and check out what's on the table again. (Teaser: one very special guest coming up soon! Aspiring writers won't want to miss it!)

The prize pack includes: a beach bag, towel, nail polish, novel, journal, cosmetic bag, and a bookmark. Can you say FUN!? And if you haven't read ONE DAY yet, check it out. I haven't read it, but loved the movie and hope to read it soon!


  1. My favorite read of the summer has been On Writing by Stephen King. It's not your usual downtime read, but he is such an amazing storyteller I couldn't help but get swept away by his anecdotes.


  2. My favorite read this summer has been Lionel Shriver's "So Much For That." It was so good I purchased 3 more of her books and have now made my way through "The Post Birthday World" and have started on "The Female of the Species." I love finding a new (to me) author!

    I can't pick just one favorite for the entire summer so I'll pick my favorite thus far for August. I loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog.


  4. Is it OK for a man to write on this page? I have loved reading "The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins(vol.1)this summer. I am now on vol.2 "Catching Fire." What a great and exciting series! I don't really need the prize because the nail polish just won't go with my nail gun!


  5. My favorite summer read this year has been "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot - informative, engaging, and accessibly written.

  6. First of all I love the blog! So, I wish I could say that my favorite read of the summer is a new book, but it is actually this novel featured for this giveaway, "One Day" by David Nicholls. I found out about the book after I saw the trailer for the film, and I fell in love. It would be amazing to win this prize pack. Thank you!

  7. Well, I was late to the party for reading The Help, but was so glad I did. I can't get over that this is a debut novel. Just wonderful story telling, not wanting it to end. I haven't seen the movie yet, but will. Now on to the next one!

  8. Folly Beach by Dot Benton Frank

  9. Great suggestions, all. (I'm well aware that I can't play here, contest-wise.) I've been wanting to read "The Immortal Life..." and it's good to hear that "One Day" is also a great book. I'll add both to my ever-growing list. And I'll have to look up the others mentioned here. Where did the summer go? btw, Lindsey, it's never too late to read "The Help." I know you'll love the movie; I've already seen it twice!

  10. I read The Hunger Games Trilogy and was surprised by how much I enjoyed them. They were an intriguing departure from my usual genres.

    Not exactly a "beach read," but I just finished "Dirty Secret" by Jessie Sholl about her mother's hoarding issues. It was very well done and I am fascinated by this disorder. I'm finding myself becoming a minimalist as I get older.

  13. I just finished Jim C. Hines Goblin trilogy. Loved it very funny and a very unlikely hero.

  14. Mine until dawn by ednah walters
    kiss me crazy by ednah walters

    really like style of this writer so playing catch up with all she's written

    thanks for having this contest

  15. Thanks to all who participated! Love all the book suggestions! I'll post a winner this evening. Hope you'll stop back by What Women Write again and check out ONE DAY in theaters tomorrow!
