You MUST do the title part in order to be entered.
I'll pick the winner with a random number generator.

Who can enter: Residents of the US or Canada only.

    +1 advice to improve your blog

    I can't really think of anything to make your blog better. I've looked through it, and the only thing that I can think of is I think you have too many book counters in your side bar. But it's not something that really bothers me.. but it's the only thing I could think of! ^^;;

  25. Title: "Darkness Before the Dawn" or "Fractured Fate" - all sf/fantasy/paranormal YA

    +1 tell me how I can improve my blog: I honestly can't think of much to improve your blog, but perhaps it would be better with three columns, and perhaps a different banner that isn't mostly white. Your color scheme is awesome!
