Trailer + Giveaway: My Life Undecided


Today, courtesy of Tara from Zeitghost Media, I am giving away a copy of My Life Undecided by Jessica Brody. All I've heard are good things about this book, and I'm so excited to be hosting this giveaway. For those who have not heard of My Life Undecided, here's the summary:

"PLEASE READ THIS! MY LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

Okay, maybe that was a bit melodramatic, but I’m sorry, I’m feeling a bit melodramatic at the moment.

Here’s the deal. My name is Brooklyn Pierce, I’m fifteen years old, and I am decisionally challenged. Seriously, I can’t remember the last good decision I made. I can remember plenty of crappy ones though. Including that party I threw when my parents were out of town that accidentally burned down a model home. Yeah, not my finest moment, for sure.

But see, that’s why I started a blog. To enlist readers to make my decisions for me. That’s right. I gave up. Threw in the towel. I let someone else be the one to decide which book I read for English. Or whether or not I accepted an invitation to join the debate team from that cute-in-a-dorky-sort-of-way guy who gave me the Heimlich Maneuver in the cafeteria. (Note to self: Chew the melon before swallowing it.) I even let them decide who I dated!

Well, it turns out there are some things in life you simply can’t choose or have chosen for you—like who you fall in love with. And now everything’s more screwed up than ever.

But don’t take my word for it, read the book and decide for yourself. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll scream in frustration. Or maybe that’s just me. After all, it’s my life."

Come on, a blog allowing readers to decide the blogger's next move? Brilliant! If you're not excited now, check out the book trailer:



And now, it's on to the giveaway. One lucky winner will receive a copy of My Life Undecided. To enter, please fill out the form below and leave a comment letting everyone know whether or not you'd let other people make your decisions for you. An extra entry will be given to those who watch the book trailer. This giveaway is open to US and CA participants only and will be open till October 15th. After that, the winner will be contacted for their mailing information. If the winner does not reply back within 24 hours, another winner will be chosen.

Good luck, everyone! And special thanks to Tara and Macmillan for allowing me to host this giveaway!

  2. Definitely not. I couldn't handle my decisions being in someone else's hands.

  3. No way would I let another make my decisions for me! That is how we live and learn by trial and error.

  4. I am not the most decisive... I'm not good as saying-Yes I want that (altho I'm AWESOME at saying NO! I do NOT want) but I also do NOT do well having other people make them for me... THAT wouldn't go over very well :P

  6. Definitely not! I like to make my own decisions based on my own thoughts and ideas. I'd never let anyone make my decisions for me.

  7. If I was 15 like Brooklyn, then perhaps I would like to see what others would do in my situation. However, I would decided for myself whether or not to carry out those decisions.

  9. I would hate that. There is just no way, it would drive me insane.

  10. Never, never ever!! I love making my own decisions, even if my decisions are bad ones, because in that case, I can learn from my experience. Yikes, people making decisions for me reminds me of the dystopian novels I read, and while I like reading them, I'd never actually want to live in that kind of society.

  12. I dont think I could have just anyone making decisions for me. Maybe if I trusted someone completely I could, but not just anyone.

  13. 1) I would totally let other people make decisions for me. Not about love, but everything else, for sure. I'm sooooo bad at making decisions. It pretty sad, actually.
    2) That trailer was awesome. It actually felt like one for a movie or something. I love that it wasn't just words and music. The only thing is she looked way younger than both of those guys :P

  14. I'm not sure if I would let others make my decisions for me - - I do think it would serve as a very interesting experience and experiment

  15. I think it would be an easy way out of many hard choices but then I don't think that it would be very wise though

    and the trailer is awesome.

  20. MY LIFE UNDECIDED is a fun, fast-paced read that feels like you're watching a movie (and hopefully one day you will be)! This is contemporary YA at its best.
