FAVORITES GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP



Happy Friday Everyone! I’m thrilled to be part of the Favorites Giveaway Blog Hop sponsored by StuckinBooks. I’ve got lots of newly released YA books that I've read or want to read. There are SO many good ones right now. I'm reading one now and have a few on hold at the library And if you’re reading a different book in the series listed or want a different book by one of the authors listed, I’m glad to get you that book instead as long as it doesn't cost more than the book I've chosen.

Don’t see a book you like? You can win a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card instead. I hope you'll all enter to win a book or gift card for yourself or as a gift for someone.



So here are your choices. Click on the title to read a blurb from Goodreads. Sorry the books aren't lining up perfectly.

 




 
 
 

SWORD AND VERSE
TEN THOUSAND SKIES ABOVE YOU

If you haven't found a book you want, you can win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.



To enter, all you need to do is be a follower (just click the follow button if you’re not a follower) and leave a comment through February 19th telling me the book you want to win or if you want to win the Gift Card instead. If your e-mail is not on your Google Profile, you must leave it in the comments.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry. You must be 13 or older to enter. International entries are welcome as long as  The Book Depository ships to you for free.

Here's what's coming up:

On Monday I have a guest post by debut YA author Heidi Heilig and a giveaway of her YA fantasy time travel THE GIRL FROM EVERYWHERE.

The following Monday I have an interview with debut author Janet Taylor and a giveaway of her YA time travel INTO THE DIM.

The Monday after that I have a guest post by debut author Kim Savage and a giveaway of her YA thriller AFTER THE WOODS.

Hope to see you on Monday! 
 
Here's all the other blogs participating in this Blog Hop:

I can't join in b/c of living in Egypt (and Amazon won't download to me even with a gift card), but I wanted to mention how cool the covers are. Six of Crows attracts me 'coz it's dark and has a bold design. Funny about the apple on two of them, though, just like Twilight's. I've "borrowed" the design of a Gaiman book for one of my Bloodwalker covers. I guess I'm not the only borrower! LOL!
