Young Adult Giveaway Hop


Today I'm thrilled to be part of the Young Adult Giveaway Hop being hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and BookLove101. I'm even more thrilled, because the books that I am offering as a choice for the person who wins my giveaway are all books that I'm madly in love with, and I can't wait to present someone with the opportunity to win one of them.

So, what's up for grabs this week? ONE lucky winner will be able to pick ONE of the following books and I will send it to them via The Book Depository. This giveaway is open anywhere that The Book Depository ships.

So, let's get this party started. Here are the books the winner can choose from: 

Shadow And Bone
by Leigh Bardugo
GoodReads | My Review!
Who's This For?: If you like high fantasy and have yet to read Shadow And Bone, we really need to fix that.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: This is the book I missed in 2012, the one where I'm still going "How did I not read that?" about it even after closing it and putting it on my shelf. Full of action, intrigue, romance, magic and memorable characters, Shadow And Bone is one of, if not the, best book I've ever reviewed on this blog. You do not want to miss this one, guys. It's amazing!

The Mephisto Kiss
by Trinity Faegen
GoodReads | My Review!
Who's This For?: Do you like paranormal romance? This is probably the book for you.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: I was super excited to start this series, and the first book was Good. This book, though, is absolutely mind-shatteringly awesome and I could not put it down. Jordan is a strong, but real and likable, heroine and Key is just plain awesome and I totally loved him.

Note: You are totally welcome to choose this or the first book, The Mephisto Covenant. (Links to my review.)

The Selection
by Kiera Cass
GoodReads | My Review!
Who's This For?: Lovers of romance, fairy tales and dystopia, step this way. With it's fascinating love triangle and blend of fairy tale-esque and light dystopian elements, The Selection has much to offer.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: The Selection was my choice for best book of 2012, so the short and sweet version of things was that I totally loved it. If you like any of the elements I've listed above and have not read this for some reason, you really should because it's beautiful, emotional, passionate and awesome.

Under The Never Sky
by Veronica Rossi
GoodReads | My Review!
Who's This For?: Fans of dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction who like action, adventure and romance.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: Filled with a perfect balance of action, adventure and romance, I was deeply drawn into Under The Never Sky, and chose it as one of my favorite books of 2012. I love the rich and vivid world building, and the even more fascinating and compelling relationships that form between the characters--whether it's the friendships between Aria x Roar or Perry x Roar, or the well done romance between Aria and Perry that I feel for hook, line and sinker.

Note: You're welcome to request the sequel, Through The Ever Night, if you wish.

Legend
by Marie Lu
GoodReads | My Review!
Who's This For?: If you like Dystopian fiction or plots with lots of action, deception and secrets, this is probably your book.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: Legend is a high energy novel that I could not put down. I really liked June and Day and found myself very wrapped up in their story. The balance of all the different elements of the story is handled very well--I think I recall reading this book in a day or two.

Note: You are also welcome to choose Prodigy

Hooked
by Liz Fichera
GoodReads | My Review (not up yet!)
Who's This For?: Do you like contemporary YA? If so, Hooked comes highly recommended.

My Thoughts In A Nutshell: I Just Finished This, and I thought it was completely freaking awesome! Hooked is full of interesting characters, situations that will in turn have your heart melting or make you want to tear your hair out. I started this on Saturday night and finished Sunday morning. A practically compulsive read that I could not put down! (So good that I'm offering it NOW even though my review won't go live til' Friday. Maybe I'll try to pop that on GR earlier?)


Well, now that I've shown what you CAN win, I guess I'd better show you HOW to win, huh? ;) Don't worry, it's easy! Just use this rafflecopter!

    1. I still need to get All These Things I've Done; I can't believe I haven't picked that up yet. As for A Little Wanting Song, I should probably get that too considering how much I loved Graffiti Moon. Cath Crowley has a very beautiful writing style.
