I would have to say the most unrealistic thing about books is that their dreams always coincide with what is happening in their lives. I don’t know about you guys, but in my last dream I was a potato trying to put makeup on a lion.
Blind Date with a Book Giveaway! (ends May 5, winner announced May 8)
1. You don’t need to be following me.
2. This is a pilot run to see how well this works. If this is successful, I’m going to do future giveaways of a similar nature. I will ship anywhere, including internationally, at no cost to you!
3. You may enter to win any of the three books by reblogging the post containing the synopsis of the book you want, but please only reblog each post once. Everyone who reblogs will automatically be in the running to win the bonus book giveaway, but you may only win one book. So there will be a total of four winners.
5. You can choose to have the book revealed to you once you’ve won, or you may opt to be completely surprised when it shows up on your doorstep. Either way, I’ve picked books that are new(ish) to the YA fiction section.
6. The giveaway books are all brand new and paperback. The bonus book giveaway is a lightly used hardback.
If you enjoyed Cinder by Marissa Meyers, A Million Suns by Beth Revis, or Divergent by Veronica Roth. This is the story of a girl who must fight for survival after being exiled into a bitter new world. Her survival depends on the help of a mysterious stranger who she doesn’t quite trust, but she’ll soon learn that trust isn’t a commodity she can afford in these dire times.
If you enjoyed It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini, Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, or Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. Here we meet our Heroine, a girl who is inexplicably attracted to a boy who broadens her romantic horizon just as she’s resigned herself to be unhappy forever.
