Tunnels and Blog Template Contest

Hi Everyone.
Well, my experience with the book Tunnels was rather short. I began it, read the first few pages, and then skimmed the book, stopping occasionally to read a few sentences, and then just shut the book.

I have decided to hold a contest. Yup, BookLoversCentral is holding its first ever contest.

The winner of the contest would be the one who submitted the template(link) Marvel and I chose for our blog. And besides the great honor of having your suggested template on this blog, up to three links of your choice will be added to our, as of right now, nonexistent Blogroll.


1. May either submit a link to the specific template or just the name. You may get bonus points for supplying the link.

2. Below link, please mention why you feel that template would suit this blog's theme.

3. Become a follower of this blog if you aren't already. :) OK, fine, it's not a rule, but I'd like you to.


1. You may submit as many templates as you have the time to.


1. If you submit a link from TheCutestBlogontheBlock website, chances are it will not be selected.

Let the Contest commence.



  1. CoCo was here so deal with it :)May 2, 2010 at 1:43 PM

    u skimmed tunnels? its kind of boring at times but its really good.

  2. What's with the attitude, CoCo? JK.
    I skimmed some of it before I set it aside, yes.
    What did you like about it?

  3. AH! i just finished the third book in the dreamhouse king series (gatekeepers) and there is a fourth book that im having a hard time getting my hands on (called timescape)...the suspense is killing me!!! apperantly the library doesnt have it, so i have to find some other way to get my hands on it. thats kind of hard since i dont really buy books... i'll have to see. im starting tunnels today, i hope it's as good as CoCo says. I dont know if i mentioned this before, but "Bad Girls dont Die" by Katie Alenderis a REALLY good book, i would highly reccomend it.

  4. the attitude???? excuse me??? :) jk well what i liked was the.........well basically the whole story. its a really interesting concept, really. i mean, finding a whole underground world, finding out ur mother ran away from of it when u were a child, and if u try 2 escape the evil police, the "Styx" they will be after u..... of course though it sometimes added 2 much detail 2 things, so much i skimmed alittle, and then when it was just really boring and nothing was happening..... ugh. but it is really interesting 4 the most. and yes, have u read the dreamhouse kings?? its awssome!!!!! althoough, a friend of mine and bree's said she might buy the books and we could borow the last part of the series. yay!

  8. No, not like that; a link as in a link to a template or background(design); I don't really like the one we have right now all that much.
    I love cheesecake as well :)


  9. I have obtained LIFE ON THE REFRIGERATOR DOOR and read it.

    I have also procured Lake of Souls by Darren Shan.


  10. so what do u think of "life on the refrigerator door"?
    k, template ideas

    basically, all of them reminded me of books or scrapbooking in some way,not all of them go completely with the theme, but i put down the ones i thought would look nice...

  11. Life on the Refrigerator Door was a nice, freakishly fast read.


  12. well... i just read the tip/advice/warning thing, so here are some other templates:

  13. Thanks for the links; I'll look at them tomorrow
