Best Book Ever (6) + Giveaway

Short and Sweet

Coranne (or Amanda C.) from Short and Sweet Reviews hosts a weekly feature called "The Best Book Ever." Each week, different bloggers (some stay the same each week) will be "facing off" Food Network style to tell you why their choice of book is the best one in the genre. Each week a different topic will be featured.

To help celebrate Short and Sweet Review's one year anniversary, this week's Best Book Ever posts come with a giveaway. It was a little hard to decide which book I wanted to giveaway. There are so many books that I adore, but I finally decided on a book that I often overlook. I'm not a huge fan of mysteries, but there is one book that I always recommend for the genre.

My featured book and giveaway:

The Westing Game

A bizarre chain of events begins when sixteen unlikely people gather for the reading of Samuel W. Westing's will. And though no one knows why the eccentric, game-loving millionaire has chosen a virtual stranger--and a possible murderer-- to inherit his vast fortune, one thing's for sure: Sam Westing may be dead... but that won't stop him from playing one last game!

Then check out Short and Sweet Reviews to see what other books are being featured. If you are entering for a chance to win a copy of Ellen Raskin's The Westing Game, please fill out the form below.

I read this book last spring. I was a substitute librarian at my sons' school and found it while shelving. I liked it quite a lot. Interestingly enough, my older son had already read it and loved it. I didn't even know. Then just last week my 5th grade son read it for his literature group in class. He said it was awesome and that he loved it. They are now reading Margaret Peterson Haddix's Missing series and he is loving that too. I'm so glad that reading is such a big emphasis at their school. I'm a high school librarian now full-time and LOVE it! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of The Westing Game.

I haven't read it...I don't think. My memory is awful and this would have been pre-Goodreads/Shelfari. Anyway, I want to, since it's apparently the Best Book Ever!

I read it in school a while ago. I remember it was interesting, but I don't really remember that much from it! Maybe I'll get to re-read it ;) Thanks for the giveaway!
