Follow Friday's question this week is:
Q. Letter to Santa: Tell Santa what books you want for Christmas!

A. Oh boy..... I have so many books I want right now, but some of my must-haves right now are probably the Starcrossed series, the Hex Hall series, and the Anna series.... also, after reading all the books in the Percy Jackson series, and loving them, the series have been in my wishlist ever since.

Root - an Interactive Story from Guardian Teen Books

Root badge

We were lucky enough to have partnered up with Guardian Teen Books to introduce their latest project to our readers; Root - an interactive story.

Guardian Teen Books has partnered with Random House for a new interactive, serialised story called Root - a fast-paced thriller set in the shadowy world of computer hacking and espionage. Every weekday for six weeks a new chapter will be released on The content will be directly influenced by readers' contributions, such as their ideas for characters' personalities and skills.
As well as incorporating suggestions from readers, the story will also be brought to life via several social media platforms. For example, Guardian Teen Books' Twitter and Facebook accounts will be providing behind the scenes updates of how Molly is progressing, along with clips on Audioboo featuring the voicemails that Molly has discovered. This will be accompanied by onsite quizzes and photo puzzles on Flickr.

A little bit about Root....
The heroine Molly Root is a 15 year old computer genius whose friend Danny is killed after being caught stealing priceless data from a ruthless global corporation. Now she's in over her head. So far Molly Root's mission to get to the bottom of her best friend's murder has taken her on a perilous trail across London. Her key lead is a dodgy police detective - and her attempts to expose his shday contacts are testing her ingenuity to the limits.

--Have fun and be creative! :)

This week I'm reading Radiance by Alyson Noel

"The Radiant Boy towered menacingly, having grown three times his size in just a handful of seconds. The blond curls that had been springy and bouncy just a moment before morphed into angry, vicious, three-headed snakes, while his body emitted a glow so bright-so radiant- it was all I could do not to cover my face." - page 100

What's your teaser for this week?
