Today marks the start of the Fall Into Belzhar event, and I'm excited to be participating! Kicking off the event will be a Twitter chat today between author @MegWolitzer and @MundieMoms.
In the book, which comes out September 30, a teenage girl named Jam is sent to a "therapeutic boarding school" after a terrible loss. She's then accepted into a highly sought-after class called Special Topics in English, in which her teacher, Mrs. Quenell, gives each class member a red leather journal that they are instructed to write in.
A group of YA bloggers and vloggers that includes:
Alexa Loves Books | The Book Rat | Bookables | Bookish | Bloggers Heart Books | Elizziebooks | Girls in the Stacks | Good Books and Good Wine | I Am A Reader | Icey Books | Jessie the Reader | Katie’s Book Blog | Me, My Shelf and I | Mundie Moms | Novel Thoughts | The Perpetual Page Turner | Price is Wong | Reading Teen | Writer of Wrongs |
and me -- last but not least :) will be tweeting, tumblr-ing and Instagramming peeks at our own mysterious journals:
If you want to take a look at what's in my journal and you don't follow me those places, here's how:

Here's the book's synopsis from Goodreads:
If life were fair, Jam Gallahue would still be at home in New Jersey with her sweet British boyfriend, Reeve Maxfield. She’d be watching old comedy sketches with him. She’d be kissing him in the library stacks. She certainly wouldn’t be at The Wooden Barn, a therapeutic boarding school in rural Vermont, living with a weird roommate, and signed up for an exclusive, mysterious class called Special Topics in English. But life isn’t fair, and Reeve Maxfield is dead. Until a journal-writing assignment leads Jam to Belzhar, where the untainted past is restored, and Jam can feel Reeve’s arms around her once again. But there are hidden truths on Jam’s path to reclaim her loss.
I'll be reviewing the book closer to publication date, but I love the fact that it *slaps hand over mouth*
Until then, you'll have to read my journal to find out...
Ooh sounds fun! *goes and stalks your tumblr page* lol ;)ReplyDelete
Ha -- well there hasn't much been happening on my tumblr page as of late, but happy that this event will change that :)Delete
This is certainly an original idea in promoting a book! It's much more interactive and sounds like a lot of fun! And I just followed you on twitter! Yay! Looking forward to your tweets, that mysterious journal is definitely intruiging :)ReplyDelete

Thanks so much -- will check to see if I am following you back. And I'll be doing a giveaway of the ARC so watch for that.Delete

THIS IS SO FREAKISHLY COOL!!! I love it when tours (maybe tour is the wrong word for this though??) are done differently. ^-^ And I have to admit, I love journals. I have a collection, hehe, but I never write in them because I like them too much. ;) Can't wait for your review! I have this one for review too and I'm excited about it!ReplyDelete
Not sure if this would be called a tour or ??? but I'm excited. I'm not much of a journal person, but I'm getting into it!!Delete
Ahhh! So pumped up for this book! Great post Jen, can't wait for your journal!ReplyDelete
Happy Reading & I'm Back!
Patrick @ The Bookshelves
