Welcome to the Middle of the Road. This is a combined book review blog, one that is both cherished and prided over. We want everyone who comes to our page to find something of intrest to them, so when they walk away they are either satisfied or intrigued. We are both avid readers and have a passion about books that few of our other friends do. Both of us are happy to share our experiences in the book world and at times some goodies too. Enjoy your time here, and if you are anything like us, you could spend hours just wandering aimlessly through the world of books, just like a lazy afternoon down the Middle of the Road.

February Contest has Ended...

Okay guys, well here is the deal. Unfortunately we didn't make it to 50 followers in the month of February, *sigh*. I know, I know, we are just as disappointed as you are. Especially since we were hosting a contest to give away a wonderful book to some very lucky person if we made it that far.

But since we didn't make it, we will not be giving away City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. I really wanted to put this book into someones hands, but we just didn't get the word out there enough. Helping to promote contests like this would be a huge step in getting these books out to the public and in the mailbox of some lucky winner.

BUT, all is not lost. We are not going to leave the ones who did participate high and dry. We are giving away a copy of Beastly, by Alex Flinn. We know this is not the book that was originally up for grabs, but it is better than us not giving away anything since we technically didn't meet the contest requirements :)

If you aren't sure what Beastly is about I will give you a heads up. It is a modern day retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and it is awesomely written. Being super hot, super cool, and super rich.. only makes you hideous on the inside. And when you bully the wrong person, that ugliness can manifest on the outside.

I love this story, from the classic to this new tale. I know others will too!!!

Now after all of that, the moment has finally come to announce the winner...

Drum roll please.....

CONGRATULATIONS faybear_r@hotmail.com
Please send us your mailing address withing 24 hours or else we will be contacting the first runner up!!

Thank you again to everyone who did participate, and maybe next time we can reach our goal, and the outcome will be spectacular. We have a few ideas swirling around upstairs, and some of them are going to come off with quite a bang!!!!
