HarperTeen Is Spreading The Love

Hey Everyone!

With Valentine's Day coming up, I just wanted to let you know about some fun promotions the amazing people over at HarperTeen are doing in February.


Visit the Epic Reads Facebook Page each day in February to find a new giveaway, poll, or quote as well as other surprises!


Just for those who are curious, day one of the Month of Love features a story crush calculator, something that made me ignore the list of "to do" items for my work day in favor of exploring what it was all about. As you can see in the above graphic, the crush calculator is a quiz to help you determine which "crushable story" most suits you based on a few short questions. Win. Since I have numerous and varied fictional YA crushes, I immediately took this quiz. Work can be done later right? Right.

Jenny's story crush according to the calculator: EPIC FAIL.

No seriously. That's what came up when I finished. At first I was like hmmmmm. Epic fail. That's kind of fitting for me really, so I called to tell my husband that my crush calculator told me I was an epic fail. He didn't care. Then I realized Epic Fail is actually a book, hence the STORY part of the story crush calculator. I never fail to impress myself with my brilliance.

Go find your story crush! And then come back and tell me if you got Epic Fail so I'll know I'm not alone:)


  1. I, for one, am constantly in awe of your brilliance. True Story. :)

  2. There you go again, waving your brilliance around! *scoffs* ;)

    My story crush is Alex from DELIRIUM :) I'm a rule-follower so the crush calculator knows I need a rebel-boy!

    ♥Isalys / Book Soulmates

  3. That was a fun little quiz but "my crush" being a grown late thirties man didn't exactly fit into some of the questions. I ended up with Delirium a book I definitely have been meaning to check out! Thanks for the laugh!

  4. Missie - I know. So many are. It can't be helped ;-)

    Isalys - I'm a braggart, I can't help it! And Alex is delicious, I would have preferred him to my Epic Fail:)

    Heidi - I loved Delirium! Hope you get a chance to read it soon:)

  5. That was fun! Thanks for sharing Jenny. I got The Secret Sisterhood, which I haven't read yet, but now I am intrigued to! ;)

  6. Sam - You're welcome! I kind of want to retake the quiz and see if I can not fail this time ;-)

    Jennifer - You're welcome!

  7. LOL! Sounds exactly what I would have thought after finding out what it said. I'd probably cry. LOL Na, not really. Love your story though!

    Oh and thanks for the well wishes!

  8. How cool! I am going to check it out now.

    Beth ^_^

  9. Nooooooooooooo!

    Love and Leftovers

    LOVE TRIANGLE! You’ve discovered a new crush but you’re still loyal to the old one, who should you choose? They’re both wonderful people… Can you really go wrong?
    Find out what happened when Marcie chose between Linus and J.D. in LOVE AND LEFTOVERS. Perhaps the repercussions can guide your choice?

  10. lol, you really made me giggle! I would have thought the same thing since I had never heard of that book either!
    I took the quiz and I got: A Beautiful Dark. It sounds good and I am adding it to my wishlist since this Asher guy sounds really... good ;)
    Thanks much for sharing!

  11. Did the quiz and got beautiful Dark! Thanks for the links :)

  12. Typical. I got EPIC FAIL. But, as my love life is following that pattern at the moment, I'm not surprised. Very cute little quiz--maybe I'll have to check out the book. Hopefully, the MC's love life isn't an epic fail! :)

  13. Melissa - It was a little disheartening at first, I won't lie:) Glad your eye is well enough to get into a Twitter battle with me over the Hex Boys!

    Beth - Do it! Good times:)

    Linda - Hm. I think I prefer EPIC FAIL to the love triangle. Love triangles drive me crazy (most of the time).

    Margie - Glad I could amuse you:) At least I knew A Beautiful Dark was a book, I should have gotten that one!

    Savy - You're welcome, glad you took the quiz:)

    Mary - YES! At least we're not alone. We're failures together, so that makes it better:)

  14. Jenny-

    Apparently I am an opposites attract kind of person, too. I'd guess so! My guy is 6'4" and I'm 5'2". I'm EPIC FAIL, too. But I'd choose a romantic comedy any day of the week! Thanks for the fun!!


  15. That is so funny about Epic Fail, ha ha. You thought you were crushless. I took the CRUSH CALCULATOR! and my result was Summer in the City. It's all about friends for me.

  16. Heather - That is quite a difference in height! You're so tiny, I could pick you up and carry you around in my pocket:)

    Jen - I did think I was crushless. It had profound effect on my fragile psyche ;-)

  17. Honey! See, we even have other similar tasts apart from books - I also got Epic Fail and I guess I now have to read this one :))

  18. Fun calculator and cute picture :)
