Thanks for the giveaway, Michelle. I’m looking forward to reading this! 🙂
Thanks, Christy! We’ve been through a lot of books together!
This is so exciting 🙂 I hope I win! xoxo
Oops, I hit post before I could finish…I hope I win because I’ve been a huge fan of yours since you first published the Prophecy of the Sisters trilogy. I’ve loved your writing since then.
As for a lie I told…I recently told a coworker that I did not mind working with him, when in reality, I can’t stand him:/ I couldn’t bring myself to hurt his feelings, no matter how rude and disrespectful he is.
I consider that a kind lie, Sara. 😉 Best of luck!
I can’t wait to read Lies I Told. You always manage to go beyond the tried and true and tell a story that thrills. You also write such amazing characters that they live off the page. Can Not Wait!
A lie I told…well, when I married my now ex-husband, I had told him before we got married that I quit smoking. And then continued smoking behind his back for our entire marriage.
I finally did quit in December of 2013, thankfully! LOL
Oh my, Jamieson! How did you ever keep it a secret after you were married? That must have been, er, challenging!
Thanks so much for your vote of confidence. It means so much to me.
Well, I did the traditional things that people do when trying to hide the cigarette smell. I always had a small bottle of cologne with me and lots of gum and breath mints.
I only smoked when he was away or at work, never at home. And you know, he never suspected or caught on. We were only together for 5 years, married for three, but I DID go through a ridiculous amount of cologne. LOL
Now I don’t smoke and I’m with someone who does. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest! LOL
Haha! Things have a way of working out just how they’re supposed to, don’t they?
So, excited for you, Michelle!!! Very much excited to read Lies I Told because it’ll be different from your previous books, which I loved!
I sometimes lie about how late I stay up at night and claim I was in bed by midnight…and not closer to two a.m.
Hahaha! I have told this one myself.
Thanks so much for your support. It means the world to me!
Hmm..a lie I once told ? There was a time back in my rebellious teenage years where I had a guy friend call my mom at work and pretend he was a friends dad, asking permission to stay at her house….when in reality, we told our parents we were staying at each others houses and we went out to a party and stayed out all night….to this day, I don’t believe either one of us were caught.
As for why I can’t wait to read Lies I Told ~ Because ever since I read the Prophecy Of The Sisters, I’ve been hooked on you like a junkie on crack ! 😉
This is definitely reminiscent of some lies I told back in my rebellious teenage years, Danielle. I won’t tell if you won’t.
And thanks so much for your support. I have the best readers EVER.
I love all your books…so when ever i see you have a new one out i just get excited
Thanks so much, Erin!
I have told a lie or two to friends about their cooking lol. I know they try soooo hard, but it still taste so horrible lol. I feel so guilty now 🙁
I tend to think lies of kindness are okay.
I would really love to read this. I look forward to all of your books and would love an ARC. I would be happy to review this!
Thanks, Christine! That would be awesome.
I once told a lie to my boyfriend when he woke up and asked me what time it was. I told him it was 2pm when in reality it was 8am. I felt a little bad when he sprang out of bed in a rush. It was funny though!
Lol, Christine! You prankster, you!
I can’t wait to read this book!!!!! I better go tweet about this right now so I can get an extra entry! (If I win an ARC, I will be sure to pass it on to one of my teens during Teen Read Week.)
Thanks, Chrissie. But since you’re a librarian, I’ll find a way to get you an ARC if you don’t win. Libraries and librarians are my favorite — and you’re the best of the best!
How did I not see your reply until now?!? Woohoo! Thanks! 🙂
I can’t wait to read this book, so here’s to hoping that I get to read it early! 🙂
Fingers crossed for you, Cassidy!
I lie to my kiddos about various things but it is really for their own good, right 😉
But of course, Shannon!
This book sounds really, really good!
This book sounds really good and I can’t wait to snag it! And lies? I rarely tells lies and I lies only when I have to or get out of an conversation
You’re so good, Kat!
I’m excited for Lies I Told because I always love reading your books!!
I lied to my parents about how I met my now ex-girlfriend (we met online…woops.)
Haha, Brandi! Is there still a stigma about meeting online? Well, maybe for parents!
This is wicked! Thank you so much for hosting another one! 😀
Thank you for entering!
Lie I Told sounds so good I can’t wait for it’s release!
As for a lie I told…well during the school year I may have “bumped” my mark on a mid-term from a 65 – 70 when my parents asked what my mark was. My parents are nice, they just tend to freak out a bit if I don’t do as well on an assignment as they had hoped.
I think we’ve ALL been tempted to tell that lie, Sarah!
And I never said why I was excited for Lies I Told…whoops.
Well I love the Prophecy of the Sisters series and The Temptation of Angels! And I also like that this book doesn’t have fantasy/magic/paranormal. Even though I love all those things in a book, it’s nice to read a book where the author is experimenting with a different world. I know it will be great! 🙂
Thank you so much! I can’t wait to share it with all my readers. I’m very interested to see how you like a book of mine that is NOT fantasy.
I’m excited about this book. Each book you have written has been a unique story full of heart so I’m interested to see how this one plays out.
A lie I told. hmmm…. When I was in high school I told my mom that I was staying at a friends house, but I totally spent the evening with friends at a party. I wound up crashing at the party with my boyfriend. We were sleeping (just sleeping and nothing more) and my younger brother was there too. He told my Mom thinking it would get me in trouble, but she didn’t believe him and he wound up getting in trouble.
Oh, Nikki! This made me laugh and think of Rebekah! Sometimes when you’re SO GOOD, you can get away with A LOT.
I cannot wait to read this! It sounds great.
i once told my supervisor at my first job ever that i was 14 instead of 16 so i won’t be put down to work overtime.
i’m excited for lies i told because it’s by michelle zink and she’s an awesome author.
Sometimes the money isn’t worth it, Michelle!
Thanks so much for your faith in me. I don’t take it lightly.
This looks amazing and different than some of your other YA. Looking forward to reading it!
Lie I once told: Leaving college to g home for the weekend I once told a car of “gentlemen” who followed me from a gas station beeping and shouting catcalls thy I was obviously a dancer in a local strip club by the name of Trixie and if they wanted to see me in action they shouldn’t their money where their mouths were.
It became the running weekend ritual sadly enough. I went to school in a community where people thought it was acceptable to speak to women in a derogatory manner and “I’m not interested” didn’t register with them as an appropriate response from a woman they were trying to engage in conversation.
Sadly, I think this is true even in places where people are considered enlightened, Megan. We have a long way to go yet.
Why I can’t wait to read this novel: I have been following you on Facebook for a year and love how down to earth a person you are, I decided I want my first experience with your writing to be something you recently have finished.
You’re the sweetest, Megan! It’s such an awesome privilege to know so many of my readers, even if it is online. I feel like you are all a part of my life, and I feel lucky to feel apart of yours, too.
Ah! I can’t wait for this book to come out! I’ll actually be able to read it since I’ll finally be finished with school!
Lie I have told:
I told a guy I was asexual so that he wouldn’t hit on me. It blew up in my face later on when we became good friends.
Lol, Shellie. At least you could laugh about it once you were friends!
A lie I told hm??
That I’ve lost weight even though I haven’t 😛
and I can’t wait to read this since it looks to be such an amazing book!
I told my ex that I thought he was cute when actually he was really unattractive inside and out.
Oh, my… I guess that one came back to haunt both of you, Brittany…
I can’t wait to read your book because it sounds very mysterious and suspenseful and I love that combination in a book!
I once told my friend her singing was good but everytime she sang i wanted to leave the house.
Oh, lunamoth… I shouldn’t laugh but I can’t seem to help it!
