If you're looking for the perfect, funny novel to snuggle down with and read over the upcoming holidays, then this is your contest. I love reading novels with great humor, and so today for giveaway I have the soon-to-be-released
REAL LIVE BOYFRIENDS* by E. Lockhart (Delacorte, December 28, 2010)
* yes, boyfriends, plural. If my life weren't complicated—I wouldn't be Ruby Oliver
Wait, because I have it, and because 'tis the season to be jolly, I'm going to throw in my ARC of
THE TREASURE MAP OF BOYS (Delacorte, July 2009)
Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon—and me, Ruby Oliver
Even if you've missed the first two Ruby Oliver books, you'll still adore these!
From Amazon for REAL LIVE BOYFRIENDS:
Ruby Oliver, the neurotic, hyperverbal heroine of the The Boyfriend List, The Boy Book, and The Treasure Map of Boys, is back!
Ruby Oliver is in love. Or it would be love, if Noel, her real live boyfriend, would call her back. But Noel seems to have turned into a pod-robot lobotomy patient, and Ruby can’t figure out why.
Not only is her romantic life a shambles:
Her dad is eating nothing but Cheetos,
Her mother’s got a piglet head in the refrigerator,
Hutch has gone to Paris to play baguette air guitar,
Gideon shows up shirtless,
And the pygmy goat Robespierre is no help whatsoever.
Will Ruby ever control her panic attacks?
Will she ever understand boys?
Will she ever stop making lists?
(No to that last one.)
Roo has lost most of her friends. She’s lost her true love, more than once. She’s lost her grandmother, her job, her reputation, and possibly her mind. But she’s never lost her sense of humor. The Ruby Oliver books are the record of her survival.

From Amazon for THE TREASURE MAP OF BOYS:
E. Lockhart offers a hilarious and realistic look at the trials and tribulations of being a teenager in her third Ruby Oliver novel. Find out what the real treasure is in Ruby’s life as she creates a treasure map of people she cares for and who return her feelings.
Ruby is back at Tate Prep, and it’s her thirty-seventh week in the state of Noboyfriend. Her panic attacks are bad, her love life is even worse, and what’s more:
· Noel is writing her notes,
· Jackson is giving her frogs,
· Gideon is helping her cook,
· and Finn is making her brownies.
· Rumors are flying, and Ruby’s already sucky reputation is heading downhill.
Not only that, she’s also:
· running a bake sale,
· learning the secrets of heavy metal therapy,
· encountering some seriously smelly feet,
· defending the rights of pygmy goats,
· and bodyguarding Noel from unwanted advances.
Ruby struggles to secure some sort of mental health, to understand what constitutes a real friendship, and—if such a thing exists—to find true love.
