YA Book Giveaway

    April 16, 2015

    Morning glory. Today I had the pleasure of introducing you to the awesome Bekah and to celebrate that, I picked two random books to offer up for giveaway as a “pick your choice” kind of option. As with each of the giveaways held here, first let’s get down to basics. Before I give away details on the two books, there’s a small change for those entering to note. Because of some spam issues (ugh), I’ve gone back to a mandatory entry. If that doesn’t help, we’ll figure something else out. But for this giveaway, that’s the rule.

    Bekah put together the Taylor Swift book tag (which is rad by the way) and I picked TWO of the books on there. Why? One because I seriously heart the series (it’s a guilty pleasure kind of read) and the other because Bekah’s review of said book intrigued me – which naturally led to adding a copy to my shelf.

    The giveaway(s) is open to U.S. readers. I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under “anonymous,” please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment – it’s not nearly as easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it – believe it or not, there have been a couple people that I could not verify. So please, I don’t mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I’d sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification before another winner is randomly chosen.

    To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget… and good luck everyone! The giveaway ends on April 22nd.

    What can you choose:

    The Elite, by Kiera Cass (Or choose The Selection or wait for a copy of The Heir, out May 5th.)

    The Selection began with thirty-five girls.

    Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

    America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away. – Goodreads

    Alienated, by Melissa Landers

    Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

    Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

    Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

    But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

    Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet. – Goodreads

      Totally would pick The Elite! I loved The Selection but I haven't got around to getting and reading The Elite yet! As for favorite Taylor Swift song that's a bit hard to pick but I think I'm going to say Speak Now! I just love that song! Thanks for this fun giveaway!

        Excellent pick, Abbi. I really enjoy that series! They're some of my "guilty pleasure" reads though must confess, I don't feel guilty while reading them. ;)

        That is an awesome song! I love the storytelling it involves. :)

        I'd forgotten that I wanted to offer a chance to win something for the release of The Heir and your post gave me the perfect excuse to do just that. Plus, I had to pull out Melissa's book again last night and dream about reading it. ;) Yep, I'm silly like that.

        Thank YOU. I appreciate the feedback on the changes. It helps to know they look okay. I only have my system to go by, but do try and make sure to check the changes against various browsers and a tablet/phone. :)

        Ps; thank you for giving me an excuse to create graphics. Having an excuse always makes it more fun. ;D

      How fun! Giveaways are always awesome. As for my favorite Taylor Swift song? I haven't listened to one of hers in years, but I do still enjoy Love Story. :)

        Aw, "Love Story" is darling! That's one of my favorite "classic Taylor" songs. :)

      Thanks for the chance to win! I have Cass' first book and am eager to read it once the semester is over! I can't choose one Taylor Swift song! I don't mind her newer sound, but I love her stuff from the "middle years" from "Fearless" onward … =)

        How fun. I hope you like the first book.

        Taylor's "Fearless" record has some of my favorite songs on it. Always did (and still do) love her single, "Love Story." :)
