Contest time!

I have a spare copy of The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard. Here is what it is about:
Colt and Julia were secretly together for an entire year, and no one—not even Julia’s boyfriend— knew. They had nothing in common, with Julia in her country club world on Black Mountain and Colt from down on the flats, but it never mattered. Until Julia dies in a car accident, and Colt learns the price of secrecy. He can’t mourn Julia openly, and he’s tormented that he might have played a part in her death. When Julia’s journal ends up in his hands, Colt relives their year together at the same time that he’s desperately trying to forget her. But how do you get over someone who was never yours in the first place?
It is a stunning book and you will enjoy it.
To enter: What is the biggest secret that you think that someone could keep from you?

  3. Great contest!
    I'd have to pretty much agree with teenreadersgather... cheating is the biggest secret I can think of. Next to murder or something like that.

  7. The Secret Year looks amazing. I want to read it soooo bad! :)

    Biggest secret someone couls keep from me? Well I do agree with teenreadersgather, but also that my boyfriend died & they didnt tell me to "protect me". I would be so mad if someone withhold that info.

  8. EDIT:: Wow, I am totally stupid, I forgot to put my answer to the question because I was thinking about it so much. ha. um..lets see, I think it would be that they were cheating with my bf behind my back. That would suck.

    OMG! I really want to read this!! It sounds soooo good! Enter me please!

  9. Of course infidelity is the number one worst secret. I'd also hate it if someone loved me but wouldn't show it or attempt a relationship for whatever reason. Since I'm married the second one shouldn't apply to me but you never know. ;)

    I will include this in my contest roundup one week before (I can come back with link or you can just visit)
    I follow, so you referred me ;)

  10. I think the biggest secret someone could keep from me is if I find out I'm adopted. It'd be like I was living a lie all along. That would suck!

  11. The biggest secret? Hmm, there are a lot that would upset me, but finding out someone was ill/dying would be the worst

  14. Biggest secret? Although I agree with the ones already posted, esp. infidelity, I think what would be worse is being lied to about my PARENT'S infidelity. Believing someone you trust is a cheater or you were the product of cheating. Talk about living a lie...

    Q&A: I agree with Drea, someone suffering in silence for my sake would kill me when I finally found out.


  17. Ooohhh, I want this book sooo bad. The worst thing would probably be to find out that I had a sibling out there that I didn't know about. Whether they were dead, or alive; full or half--that would suck.

  29. +2 answer - Just to be different, I'll say the biggest secret is that they're actually from another planet.

  33. Biggest secret. Hmmm...
    I think secrets by omission would be the worst. Like, something comes up in conversation and the person holds back from telling you what they know.

    +1 Biggest secret...that's a hard one...the biggest one would be killing someone? haha

    +1 Biggest one would probably be a friend hiding the fact that she has a terminal disease. If that were to happen, I don't know what I'd do. I want to be there for my friend, and not in the dark until sthe moment she dies :(

  40. The biggest secret? I think I'll agree with some of the bloggers here. I think betrayal and talking behind a friends back is horrible. I'd be crushed if my best friend just turned on me.

  41. Biggest secret someone could hide from me? Hm.. maybe something involving my family. I'm not around other people much so.

    +5 for following you

  42. What is the biggest secret that you think that someone could keep from you?

    That I'm adopted. For sure, because I'm so close to my family, that would devastate and confuse my life.

  47. I completely forgot to answer the entry question!

    Q: What is the biggest secret that you think that someone could keep from you?
    A: My parents told me that they were married, when in fact they were never married. They told me when I was 15 years old.

  48. Sounds like a great book! Please enter me, thanks.

    What is the biggest secret that you think that someone could keep from you? Well at first I was going to say my boyfriend cheating on me with my best friend... but everyone else keeps saying that. So I'll say a true one. My friend being raped by my other friend. :(

  49. My sister has a boyfriend but she's too scared to tell me because she thinks that I'll be judgemental about it. I'm the least judgemental person I know.

  51. In high school, I had a friend that had a drug problem. She kept that from me for a little over a year, so I think that is probably the biggest secret any one can keep from me.

  55. This sounds like an absolutely awesome book! Please enter me.

    Biggest possible secret I can think of: One of my sisters was pregnant and had a miscarriage. And they never told anyone. Now they have a cutting problem and nobody even knows. That would be the worst. To find out one of my sisters went through that much pain and know that I didn't even notice, and that they didn't tell me.
