Celebration Week #1 with YA Book Giveaway

In my post last week--you know the one where I shouted from the rooftops about my amazing agent--I said I wanted to pay it forward. There are so many amazing and supportive people in the book community, and I'd like to give back. To kick off the festivities, I'm doing a YA Book Giveaway...and you get to pick the book! If you live anywhere the Book Depository ships, you're eligible to enter. You can pick any YA book of your choice and I'll have it sent to you. A few suggestions:
ONCE EVERY NEVER by my agency sister, Lesley Livingston (yes, it's a shameless plug but Lesley is awesome!)

 BLOODROSE by Andrea Cremer (Nightshade #3). I haven't read this one yet, but LOVED the first book.


MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN by Ransom Riggs. I had to throw in a scary one, plus I plain loved this book.

The rules are simple. Just leave a comment below and tell everyone about a YA book you've read recently that you would recommend. That's it. A random number generator will pick the winning comment. Leave your comment by this Friday, Jan. 13. Also, make sure to include your email, but use (at) and (com), so the spam bots don't hunt you down and start offering you performance enhancing drugs (don't ask.)

For those writers out there, get those queries polished, because a free query critique day is coming soon! :)

  5. Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

    I have just finished Will Grayson, Will Grayson and although at first I didn't like it that much by the time I finished it I was converted.

    An unusual and very interesting read.

    If I win I would like MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN

    Thanks.

    What a great way to pay it forward! I really enjoyed reading Inside Out and Back Again by Lai Thanhha. Pete Hautman's How to Steal a Car and Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys were great reads too.
