Mid-Summer Giveaway: July 15-July 23!

You guys, there are times when I have no words, even though I'm a writer.

Times like when I got an agent, when I sold my book, when I packed up my classroom in June and realized I wouldn't be back this fall, when I first held my book (in ARC form).

Times like when both Trish Doller AND Katie McGarry gave amazing blurbs for RITES OF PASSAGE.

And I'm sure, over the next few months there will be more times that make me speechless when, you know, words are now my job.

This speechless moment, though, was again brought to you by Katie McGarry, when she e-mailed about an amazing giveaway she was planning to run mid-summer.

She dropped the following names and prizes:

Miranda Kenneally: signed copies of Catching JordanStealing ParkerThings I Can't ForgetRacing Savannah, and Breathe, Annie, Breathe
Trish Doller: a copy of Where the Stars Still Shine
Huntley Fitzpatrick: signed copies of My Life Next Door and What I Thought was True
Colette Ballard: a signed copy of Running on Empty
Katie McGarry: a signed paperback of Dare You To, a signed hardback of Take Me On, and a Take Me On poster

Then she asked if I'd like to include an ARC of RITES OF PASSAGE. With her books. With Trish's books. With Miranda, Huntley, and Colette's books.

It's a good thing that this was done over e-mail, because I can type YES YES YES but I'm still kind of gobsmacked to be included with them!

12 books. 6 authors. 1 INTERNATIONAL winner!

The giveaway runs from July 15-July 23.  The Rafflecopter is below! Go forth and enter, friends!!!

Wuah, there are so many of them. Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, Wishing For Someday Soon by Tiffany King and.. What? I can't remember! LOL. I don't really like dystopian genre though.

For my favourite contemporary YA novel, I'll have to go with my most recent contemporary read: 17 First Kisses by Rachael Allen. It was fantastic! (:

Dare You To by Katie McGarry is my all-time favorite book. I related to it so much and for awhile I read it almost everyday!

I have too many YA favorites to choose just one. But at the moment i'm loving Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss is fantastic!

Allie Del Rosario said...

Favorite contemporary is Where She Went by Gayle Forman! :)

Cathrine said...

My favorite is probably Just Listen by Sarah Dessen. It was an amazing adventure to read.

Silvina Sanguin said...

This is a seriously difficult question... My favorite contemporary YA novel would probably be the Shatter Me Saga by Tahereh Mafi, or Of Neptune by Anna Banks... or anything (and I really do mean ANYTHING) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Kaitlin Snider said...

I have so many favorites! Contemporary is my favorite genre and I love so many books within it. My most recent favorite, though, is Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson. It's the perfect summer read. :)

Indigo Wayworth said...

Anything by Rainbow Rowell!

Jessica Dunlow said...

It is really hard to pick just one. So instead I am going to list a few of my favorites:
Something Real by Heather Demetrios
The Art of Lainey by Paula Stokes
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

Kristen - Seeing Night said...

My Favorite contemp YA is Rush by Jennifer Echols! So good!

Katherine Ivan said...

Golly, narrowing down to a single title is *tough* ... but as of this moment it would be TFiOS.

Saturn Sky said...

I dont have a favorite novel.... I love books by Sarah Dessen though. Just Listen was really good.
