Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop!! 5/25-5/31

Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop!!!

Helllooooo summertime! I am a YA addict and I can’t imagine going through the summer without some new awesome books to keep me smiling, chewing nails, swooning, and generally tan from time spent on the deck with my nose wedged in a yummy summer read. I don’t want you to go without either!

All week long you have the opportunity to win my Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop Booty. Starting right now and all the way until 11:59pm on May 31st, the following books are up for grabs from me :)

First, in preparation for the highly anticipated third volume in the series, Forever (available July 12) , I have copies of where it all began!!!! Here they are:

The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater

Shiver- book one

For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf—her wolf—is a chilling presence she can’t seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl.

Linger- Book two

This is the story of a boy who used to be a wolf and a girl who was becoming one. Just a few months ago, it was Sam who was the mythical creature. But now it is spring. With the heat, the remaining wolves will soon be falling out of their wolf pelts and back into their human bodies…

Also, because not every-single-body loves shape shifting teens (it’s totally true. I don’t completely understand, but it is true) I also have another fabulous but contemporary YA novel

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

The last normal moment that Mia, a talented cellist, can remember is being in the car with her family. Then she is standing outside her body beside their mangled Buick and her parents’ corpses, watching herself and her little brother being tended by paramedics. As she ponders her state (Am I dead? I actually have to ask myself this), Mia is whisked away to a hospital, where, her body in a coma, she reflects on the past and tries to decide whether to fight to live. Via Mia’s thoughts and flashbacks, Forman (Sisters in Sanity) expertly explores the teenager’s life, her passion for classical music and her strong relationships with her family, friends and boyfriend, Adam. Mia’s singular perspective (which will recall Alice Sebold’s adult novel, The Lovely Bones) also allows for powerful portraits of her friends and family as they cope: Please don’t die. If you die, there’s going to be one of those cheesy Princess Diana memorials at school, prays Mia’s friend Kim. I know you’d hate that kind of thing. Intensely moving, the novel will force readers to take stock of their lives and the people and things that make them worth living.
