LPF Book Club & Giveaway: "Runaway" by Meg Cabot

My Gramma, a former schoolteacher taught me how to read at the tender age of 4 and ever since I've always read anything I could get my hands on! Lately, my literature of choice has been  non-fiction fashion oriented coffee table books & fictional reads involving the fashion world. Thus, my introduction of a new series at LPF, the La Petite Fashionista Book Club where i'll review what i'm reading lately.

Meg Cabot has always been one of my favorite authors  ("The Princess Diaries" & "The Boy Next Door" are among the most read in my collection). So, when I had the chance to check out, Runaway,  the third installment of the Airhead series, I leapt at the opportunity!

The Airhead Series is a sci-fi meets fashion series about Emerson Watts, a normal 16-year old who due to a mysterious accident involving Stark Enterprises takes over the body of supermodel Nikki Howard. Her life is turned upside down as she tries to uncover a murder mystery, her relationship with high school crush, Christopher, and being herself in a million dollar body.

Runaway,  the 3rd installment in the triology features Em on the run from everyone she loves because they're mad at her for something she can't explain. When Em finally discovers Nikki's secrets, she needs Christopher to set aside his anger & help her reveal the truth about the multi million dollar company.This could put both their lives in danger, and Em questions if she's better off living life as a runaway.

ONE Lucky reader will win a prize pack containing this Hobo Clutch Wallet & all three books in the Airhead Series: Airhead, Being Nikki & Runaway.

The Contest is open to US Residents & ends April 26th at midnight EST.

Ohh I've never read any of her books, but always heard good things! Plus I'm up for trying any new books! I'd love to runaway to Paris right now. Sigh. I'm LOVING that clutch too. Thanks for the giveaway!

Alicia said...

I love to read too!! These books sound cute and i absolutely LOVE that Hobo clutch. If given the chance, I would runaway and live in New York.. :)

Lauren said...

I adore Meg Cabot's books...perfect for a quick Summer day read! If I had the chance, I would runaway to a caribbean island for the week with a couple of close friends--complete trip would include lots of food, massages, and a John Mayer concert...I have high hopes haha.

I really enjoy reading, Meg Cabot has been one of my very favorite authors for a long time. Who could resist The Princess Diaries? I really enjoyed her book Avalon High as well. She is a very gifted author. Given the chance, I would runaway to Italy. I am Italian, I was born there and brought to the US when I was young and raised here. I have never met my family in Italy nor do I know much about them(my parents don't get along with them). I would really love to runaway there and find them and find that piece of myself that I feel will be missing until I do.

Totally Europe. My best friend carl lives in London. From there I'd convince him to backpack with me. Greece, Spain, Italy, Sweden...They're all calling my name!

bee.marie said...

And you should totally read "bringing home the Birkin."

Christine said...

Paris Paris Paris!!! If I was to runaway it would definitely be to Paris, to practice my French with my American accent, shop, tour the Louvre, see the Eiffel Tower (my one true love), shop and troll for vintage finds, and experience in general the City of Lights!

PS: I've been wanting to get into this series, I've just been stuck on The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell; for a fashion-savy business girl like yourself, I totally recommend the read: it's very poignant and concise discussing why some things become popular and why others don't.

Christina said...

Meg Cabot is one of my favorites, I've read her Princess Diaries series over and over in high school. I'm really excited for this giveaway. I would run away to New York City because I'm dying to start my magazine publishing career there!

S.Elisabeth said...

I've been dying to read this series. Meg Cabot is my favorite, ever since her American Girl book! If I could runaway, I would runaway to Florence and live their the rest of my life! The stone pathways, artistic vibe, and historical sites would keep me inspired forever!

Chandra said...

If I could, I would runaway to New York City and never look back. I absolutely love it there, so much inspiration on every corner!

Thanks for the giveaway! <3

I adore Meg Cabot and the AIRHEAD series - it is AMAZING!

I would "Runaway" to New York City! :)

I'd love to run away to New Mexico to avoid my job search and spend some time with my aunt and uncle in the desert. It's gorgeous there...

E said...

Sounds like an entertaining book. I would run away to Paris :-)

Petite Style said...

Sounds like a great book. I would "run away" to Hamilton Island, Australia.

Katie said...

How awesome some authors are using fashion as a source of inspiration and writing books about it. I would run away to somewhere tropical, where I could feel the warmth on my skin and be completely relaxed. It would be my vision of what heaven will be like. Some place like Le Meridien, Bora Bora where they have hotel rooms over crystal clear blue water. I could read the Airhead series while drinking a fruity drink. Then I would go explore all of the foreign land! Pure relaxation.

Sarah Dee said...

OMG I found out about Meg Cabot last friday. WIth her 7 book Mediator series. Well... somehow I read ALL 7 OF THOSE BOOKS in 4 days!!! lol They were that good! So this contest is awesome!!!

If I had the opportunity to runaway, it would be to a place where no one would recognize me. I'd runaway to a place that is uninhabited by anyone that I know. Somewhere I can just relax and not have to worry about gossip, drama, or school. I say this because for spring break I decided to runaway from college and go back home. I didn't want to tell anybody that I was there because i just wanted to relax. However somehow my friends found out that i didn't visit them when I was back home, and became real upset. Now everything is so ...weird

I have heard so much about these books and would love to read them! If I had the chance, I would definitely runaway to Jamaica right now. I live in Wisconsin, so we barely ever have weather verging on tropical. ;) These books would be amazing beach reading material. The clutch is adorable, too.

Meredith said...

Such a great author! I have not read this series yet but i may just have to check it out!
If i had the chance to runaway right now, I'd run to the Florida Keys have "my toes in the water, ass in the sand not a worry in the world a cold beer in my hand"!

firefly said...

Hmmm...maybe to L.a>? Or Italy.

runningbetty said...

I'd run away to Hawaii, probably Honolulu. Not Tahiti, because my husband would find me there too easily.
But in my everyday life I just run away to the dressing room in the gym's locker room and those are my 10 mins to ME each day.

Liberty said...

To be perfectly honest, Care-a-lot is where I would want to travel! Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to fly up to those billowy clouds and play in the sun! Wishful thinking--I know--but even big girls can dream, right?!

Thanks for the entry--so excited!

I LOVE MEG CABOT!!
I would "Runaway" to Australia! Sometimes I feel like I need some new inspiration in my life, and seeing the way others live across the world would be on of the best experiences of my life. I look forward to going at least once in my life.

THANK YOU!

Definitely Paris! I visited there once and totally fell in love with the city.

Christa Holland said...

If I was "running away" for no particular reason & had all the funds I wanted, I'd go to Ireland or Israel. Probably Ireland first since I can't speak Hebrew, lol.
Thanks for the giveaway.
