Giveaway: This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith

I'm currently reading one of my most anticipated titles of 2013 thanks to Sam and Headline! And it is good. Like REALLY GOOD! This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jen E. Smith is exactly what I needed to find my way back into reading (it's been going slow after the exam period. My brain went into shutdown).
You can tell by its title, that Jennifer's newest book is about happiness. The many things that can make us happy. And it also reminded me to do that more often. Remind myself of the things that make ME happy and appreciate them every single day. Smile about things that brighten each day instead of thinking about the things that anger or stress me.

So I decided to do a little countdown towards the UK publication of This Is What Happy Looks Like. From March 1st I'm going to tweet one picture of something that makes me happy. Every day. Until the pub date on April 4th. I'll be tweeting with the hashtag #HappyLooksLike. It'd be fun to share them with others and also see what makes YOU happy.

That's where you can enter the giveaway. No rafflecopter widget you ask? This giveaway is of a different kind and you need a twitter account to participate.
I'll be giving away a copy of Jen's new book on April 5th! What do you have to do to win? Join my fun little game of posting a pic of something that makes you happy. Food. Books. People you love. Travelling. Anything.
You can tweet once per day, for every day from March 1st to April 4th. Include the link to your picture and the hashtags #HappyLooksLike & #MissPageTurner to be entered. Nothing more. If you agree, I will post some of your pictures on my blog when the giveaway is over. 

The giveaway is open internationally

If fate sent you an email, would you answer?

In This is What Happy Looks Like, Jennifer E. Smith's new YA novel, perfect strangers Graham Larkin and Ellie O'Neill meet—albeit virtually—when Graham accidentally sends Ellie an email about his pet pig, Wilbur. In the tradition of romantic movies like "You've Got Mail" and "Sleepless in Seattle," the two 17-year-olds strike up an email relationship, even though they live on opposite sides of the country and don't even know each other's first names.

Through a series of funny and poignant messages, Graham and Ellie make a true connection, sharing intimate details about their lives, hopes and fears. But they don't tell each other everything; Graham doesn't know the major secret hidden in Ellie's family tree, and Ellie is innocently unaware that Graham is actually a world-famous teen actor living in Los Angeles.

When the location for the shoot of Graham's new film falls through, he sees an opportunity to take their relationship from online to in-person, managing to get the production relocated to picturesque Henley, Maine, where Ellie lives. But can a star as famous as Graham have a real relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie's mom want her to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?
