Young Adult Giveaway Hop 2015!!

Welcome to my stop on the Young Adult Giveaway Hop  , hosted by Book Hounds. This year I'm going to keep things fairly simple and let the winner pick whichever book they want. However, because this is a hop about the Young Adult books we love, I do have a couple recommendations in mind to share with you all. All covers linked to Goodreads for your convenience. Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again. Now Stella is seventeen, and she's over it. She's the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it's her small town's ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She's got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her. Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after

Waiting On Wednesday (128) Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly blog post hosted by  Breaking The Spine  where readers showcase which books they are highly anticipating.

Book Trailer Tuesday (110) Survive the Night by Danielle Vega & After the Red Rain by Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli & Rob DeFranco

Book Trailer Tuesday is a Weekly Blog Post hosted by me at Blood Sweat and Books. Each week I choose two Book Trailers to showcase. One Trailer will be for an upcoming book and the other will be one that has already been released. This week I focus my spotlight on Survive the Night by Danielle Vega and After the Red Rain by Barry Lyga, Peter Facinelli & Rob DeFranco. Available Now: Survive the Night by Danielle Vega Julie lies dead and disemboweled in a dank, black subway tunnel, red-eyed rats nibbling at her fingers. Her friends think she’s just off with some guy—no one could hear her getting torn apart over the sound of pulsing music. In a tunnel nearby, Casey regrets coming to Survive the Night, the all-night underground rave in the New York City subway. Her best friend Shana talked her into it, even though Casey just got out of rehab. Alone and lost in the dark, creepy tunnels, Casey doesn’t think Survive the Night could get any worse . . . . . . until sh
