LAST SUMMER FUN GIVEAWAY

Happy Monday Everyone!

Welcome to my Last Summer Fun Book Giveaway. I wasn't sure how these giveaways would go, especially since so many books are middle grade and YA tends to be more popular. I'm happy to say that these giveaways have been popular, and I'm seeing newer followers who don't stop by as much. A huge welcome to you all!

I hope you'll find a book here for yourself or someone you know. I want to give a special shout out of thanks to Harper Collins for sending me most of these books. They send me many books I can't feature, and I make sure to donate them to a school that I know could use books.

Here's how the giveaway will work. Each week one winner will win the book of his/her choice or a $5 Amazon gift card. Most of the books are middle grade, which is why I'm offering the gift card for those who don't see a book they like. I am adding a book to the pile every giveaway. I've added a few new ones to this last giveaway.

Here's your choices this week. Click on the title to read a blurb from Goodreads.

Middle Grade Books:

 




 




 

 

 And my two YA choices:

 


ALL RISE FOR THE HONORABLE PETTY T. COOK
Big Nate Flips Out
Bridget Wilder
eleven and holding
The Magnificent Mya Tibbs
Nancy Clancy
The Keepers
The Land of Forgotten Girls
Forest of Wonder
gena finn
salt to the sea
TEDDY MARS: ALMOST A WINNER
WELL OF WITCHES
Wishing Day

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 telling me what book you'd like or that you want the Amazon gift card through August 27th. If your e-mail is not on your Google Profile, you must leave it in the comments to enter the contest.

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. This is US for the books and International for the gift card.

Here's what's coming up:

Next Monday I have a guest post by one of our followers and a blogger friend C. Lee McKenzie and a giveaway of her new MG adventure SIGN OF THE GREEN DRAGON.

The next Monday after that I have a guest post by debut author Hannah West and a giveaway of her YA fantasy KINGDOM OF ASHES AND BRIARS.

I'll be back on Wednesday, September 7th with an interview with debut author J. Keller Ford and a giveaway of her YA fantasy IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRAGON KING.

The following Monday I have a guest post by debut author Traci Chee and her agent Barbara Poelle  with a three chapter critique by Barbara and a giveaway of THE READER, a YA fantasy, by Tracie

Hope to see you on Monday!

Yum. I love them all. I'm such a fan girl when it comes to books for young readers. I have already read Salt to Sea, but I haven't read the others. I'm so excited about being on your blog next week.

All of these are new to me. I'm afraid I'm very out of the loop when it come to MG and YA. You're super generous to be giving them away. Wishing all participants good luck! :)

What a wonderful selection. And how nice to have this give-away! I'm going to pass on winning a copy, though, because I'm slowly working through my TBR stack. Hope you have had a good summer.

Somehow in my busy-ness, I didn't realize I'd let this wonderful-wonderful site lapse. Ted Sanders THE KEEPER, if you please. And thanks for all you two do. (And I'm not sure why I'm anonymous: Sandy Carlson.
