Happy spring, everyone! As the weather turns warmer, I always feel like celebrating, and here on the blog we like to do that with some big giveaways. But first, some housekeeping.
A few updates from us:
- We’re working on a super fun project with a group of amaaaazing authors that we’re very excited about. We just got the first submission in and we’re wriggling in our seats over how awesome this thing is going to be! We’re aiming to reveal this towards the end of April, so stay tuned for some deliriously fun shenanigans.
- Are you all ready to fall in love with the charmingly retro read we’ve picked for our March book discussion? Beverly Cleary’s YA books aren’t nearly as well known as her MG, and that needs to change! If you think you can join the discussion of The Luckiest Girl on March 28th (that’s one week from today), I will personally send copies to at least a couple of people who tell me so below.
- Please vote for our April discussion book, too! You can do that right at the top of the page on the sidebar. It’s been fascinating to watch how Anne of Green Gables and A Wrinkle in Time keep edging each other out, with poor Harriet the Spy lagging far behind. I actually thought Harriet would be the one people picked, but I’m happy with any of these three books. So far 179 readers have voted, which is AWESOME.
We’re offering up 4 different bundles of new and upcoming YA releases that you’ve probably heard a lot about recently. These are mostly ARCS, but there are some pretty hardcover copies as well. The title links will take you to GoodReads, where you can learn more about the books and add it to your databases.

How to Enter the Giveaways
All you have to do to enter is to leave your name and email in the Rafflecopter form, and leave a thoughtful comment below telling us which bundle(s) you’re most interested in winning and why.

Don’t forget that you may earn extra entries for tweeting or sharing on Pinterest/Tumblr/Facebook, etc! Feel free to grab the button above.
If you want a copy of The Luckiest Girl…well, this isn’t really a contest. I really, really want people to try out Beverly Cleary’s YA, so I’m gifting at least 2 Kindle copies to US residents on good faith to those who think they can make a reasonable dent in the book and discuss it with us next Friday, March 28th. Just leave a comment below telling me if you’re interested along with your email, and I’ll pick a couple of people within the next day or so. I already randomly gave away one ebook on Twitter and am feeling super generous these days, so you might as well take advantage while you can. ;) ETA: I’m limiting this to either regular visitors to this blog whose names I recognize, or those with established profiles I can easily find online. Handing these out is solely at my discretion, though I very much hope to do so to those who qualify.
So…are you in the mood for scifi or dystopians or romantic contemporaries or more serious realistic fiction? Tell us below. Hope you all are having a lovely spring so far!
Advance reading copies were provided by the publishers for the physical books in this giveaway. E-copies of The Luckiest Girl are gifted from The Midnight Garden.
