Hi guys! I’m delighted today to be helping to promote CLICK’D by Tamara Ireland Stone. Click’d is a middle grade contemporary with a fun, techy concept about a girl who creates an app that goes viral – but also has a few glitches. Thanks to Disney-Hyperion, I got to check out this book, and they’re partnering with me for a giveaway!
So if you know me, you know I ADORE Tamara’s YA books, including the Time Between Us series and Every Last Word. Her writing is always emotional, but clean and honest, and I can’t wait to explore this middle grade book!
Read on for more about Click’d, Tamara, and the giveaway!

Allie Navarro can't wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. CLICK'D pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. And it's a hit. By the second day of school, everyone is talking about CLICK'D. Watching her app go viral is amazing. Leaderboards are filling up! Everyone's making new friends. And with all the data Allie is collecting, she has an even better shot at beating her archenemy, Nathan, at the upcoming youth coding competition. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone's secrets, she has to figure out how to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back the friends it hurt—all before she steps on stage to present CLICK'D to the judges? New York Times best-selling author Tamara Ireland Stone combines friendship, coding, and lots of popcorn in her fun and empowering middle-grade debut.

My favorite app is Goodreads. It has helped me keep my book reading in check. I love the scan function where I can scan a UPC code and it will bring up the books details. I use this when I’m out purchasing books so I know if I want to read the book, if I’ve read the book already (different covers throw me off) or if it might be something I want to read. It saves so much time. I also like the app so I can update my reading status anywhere. I like being able to look at Goodreads when I am away from my computer so I can talk books with people, add books to my list or talk to Goodreads readers. I like knowing I can get book detail 24/7. It’s a fantastic app that I tell everyone about.
Definitely Beijing Subway App in English. I used to use it everyday. Now once a week. 🙂
My fav app? Wow. Honestly I’m not sure. But I think the ones I use the most are Twitter and Goodreads. They both help me keep up with books, friends, etc
Pinterest because it has helped me try new recipes.
My favorite app would have to be twitter. You can follow celebrities, stay up to date on book news and so much more.
My favorite app is Wunderlist. It helps me stay organized and you can share lists with others.
My fav app…..it’s a toss-up between twitter – that’s how I stay on top of what’s going on in the book world…..
Libby – the app from Overdrive for my library (audible ranks pretty high too)
and goodreads – to keep track of what I’ve read and to quick look up info about a book!!
My favorite app is Facebook as it keeps me in contact with family around the world 🙂
I love TripIt because it helps me keep up to date on flights.
I love Youtube because it has calming videos for anxiety!
My favorite app is Instagram. I like it because I use to discover new products.
