Awesomeness for your inner-geek
Every year we are sad to see summer go. With it goes the ice cream truck, sunny days at the pool, and days of reading and watching whatever we want. We hope you made the most of your summer, but in case you need one last hurrah we are giving away over 120 summer reading prizes this week!
Keep and eye on your phone this week as you maybe the lucky winner of AMC prize packs of tickets to see your favorite books adapted for the big screen (check out the line up of Maze Runner, If I Stay, The Giver, Guardians of the Galaxy and Mockingjay all based on books). You could be lounging around with the final books in your favorite series in our That's All prize pack including The One by Kiera Cass, City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare and Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo. Or you might geek out with your favorite nerdfighter authors with our DFTBA prize pack including Looking for Alaska by John Green (coming soon to the big screen), Hollow City by Randsom Riggs and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Or take home your favorite movies on DVD like Catching Fire, The Fault In Our Stars (sorry you will have to wait until it is released in September to recieve your prize) and Divergent.
Live it up! We only have a few days left before summer is over, let's go out with a bang!
Throwback Thursday: Twilight Edition
We all fondly remember the movies of our youth! Join us to share your memories (and sarcasm) over one of your favorites! Enjoy the classic (really?) film from 2008 based on the epic(ly long) book by Stephanie Meyer. Relive the drama (and shirtlessness) of the love between Bella and Edward. Never forget the passion (and babyface) of Jacob.
Get ready to laugh, to cry, and to sigh (so many sighs) with your favorite fanged characters! Bring a friend (and your snark) for an experience you will never forget!

Starlord's Ship is named after Alyssa Milano!
We know that if you saw Guardians of the Galaxy...you loved Guardians of the Galaxy. Don't even pretend that it wasn't your favorite movie of the summer. And if you haven't seen it yet, take five minutes to watch this and then get yourself to a movie theater!
Blue lives in a family of psychics, but the only power she has is amplifying the abilities of others. On All Hallow's Eve, she visits the Corpse Road with her aunt. There, her aunt sees the ghosts of everyone in Henrietta who will die in the next year. For the first time, Blue is able to see a ghost. It's a boy about her age. When she asks his name, he says, "Gansy, that's all there is." Her aunt tells her the only way she would be able to see the ghost is if he is her true love, or if she killed him. Possibly both.
