Infinity Glass



by Myra McEntire



Egmont



2013



Available August 6, 2013



I have FIVE free copies of this great new YA title and the third book of the Hourglass series.









From the publisher's website:









"No time like the present.



























No time in the present.





















No time left.





















From the moment the Hourglass group violated the rules of the space time continuum to rescue a murdered loved one, time has been in flux. People from other centuries slide into our time, intruding into our space, threatening our world.





















Frantically seeking a way to turn back this tide, the Hourglass begins a search for the legendary Infinityglass, tracking it to the city of New Orleans, a place where the past rests easily with the present."









Dune is selected and sent to New Orleans, but he soon finds out that the Infinityglass isn't an object, it's a person!

SkylarkBy Meagan Spooner
Carolrhoda Lab
2012
333 pages

I have FIVE FREE copies of this fantastic new YA title up for grabs! It is book one in a trilogy. Be sure and grab your chance to win a free copy.

Simply post a comment to the blog. Include your first name, city, state and email address. Deadline for posts is October 31 at noon MST. Winners will be chosen randomly by Randomizer. Winners will be contacted by email. Be sure and check your email on the 31st. Books will ship from Lerner Publishing Group.

Here is a brief summary of the book. Check on the blog for the full review.
Dystopian and downright disturbing, multi-layered and darkly fascinating, bizarrely novel and breathtakingly beautiful, dangerous yet grotesquely compelling, Skylark hits all the right notes. This is one YA novel that readers will never forget.

Set in a disturbing dystopian world where the City “harvests” the lifesource of its own children, stripping them of their magic and well being when they come of age, the city uses the children’s magic powers for the good of all. Lark Ainsley knew that someday would be her day to help her city. She had no idea that the city intends to use ALL of her.



Highly, highly recommended grades 7-up. The harvest requires the person to remove his/her clothing, but it’s not in the least bit sexual. Similar to a werewolf obviously can’t wear clothing when he/she changes forms. No language. No sex. Violence and disturbing dystopia. Think The Hunger Games mixed with A Long Long Sleep and a bit of disturbing science fiction/medical/ethical dilemmas similar to Coma.

Don't miss a chance to win a copy of this must read title in a new to-die-for series!

Read my review:



Everyone who meets Olivia becomes an instant fan. She's a pig with wicked fashion sense and a mind of her own. She's outspoken, well-read, incredibly verbose, and headstrong.



Olivia feels she's having an identity crisis. All the kids around her want to be princesses--for Halloween, in ballet class, in life--even some of the boys want to be princesses. Olivia wanted to be a princess, but that is so last year when she was "little." She asks her parents why everyone wants the same thing. Ever the free thinker, Olivia searches for something new to become.



There are so many options! Olivia simply can't decide. She imagines herself as a nurse or a reporter. Until Olivia finally decides...why settle for being a princess when she could be ?????





Beautifully rendered artwork by the author makes this reviewer green with envy over Falconer's talent. Each two page spread will have children captivated. Clever, amusing, and entertaining for kids of all ages. The artwork could stand alone without the print and tell the entire story. Isn't that what any great young reader book aspires to do?



Olivia speaks to the little girl in each of us (yes, even some of the boys).

The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee
By Tom Angleberger
Amulet Books
2012
208 pages

Available August 7, 2012
I have 5 copies of this great new addition to the series. Author Tom Angleberger’s earlier books The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back were hits with the middle grades and tween crowd. Win a copy of the new book.

Post a comment and include your name, city, state, and email. Deadline for posts is August 15 at noon MST. Winners are randomly chosen by Randomizer and will be notified on August 15. Please check your email. Books will ship from New York.

More about the book:

From the publisher’s website:

About the book:
With Dwight attending Tippett Academy this semester, the kids of McQuarrie Middle School are on their own—no Origami Yoda to give advice and help them navigate the treacherous waters of middle school. Then Sara gets a gift she says is from Dwight—a paper fortune-teller in the form of Chewbacca. It’s a Fortune Wookiee, and it seems to give advice that’s just as good as Yoda’s—even if, in the hands of the girls, it seems too preoccupied with romance. In the meantime, Dwight is fitting in a little too well at Tippett. Has the unimaginable happened? Has Dwight become normal? It’s up to his old friends at McQuarrie to remind their kooky friend that it’s in his weirdness that his greatness lies.
With his proven knack for humorously exploring the intrigues, fads, and dramas of middle school, Tom Angleberger has crafted a worthy follow-up to his breakout bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back.

Read more about Dying To Know You:

From the publisher's website:

"In Dying to Know You, award-winning author Aidan Chambers has created an indelible portrait of a young man discovering his own voice in the world, and has constructed a love story that is as much about the mind as it is the heart.
In this contemporary love story, a teenage boy named Karl enlists a famous writer to help him impress his girlfriend, Fiorella. She has asked him to write her a letter in which he reveals his true self. But Karl isn’t convinced he’s good enough with words, so he tracks down Fiorella’s favorite author and begs him to take up the task. The writer reluctantly assents, on the condition that Karl agree to a series of interviews, so that the letter will be based on an authentic portrait of Karl. The letter, though effective, has unexpected consequences for Karl, Fiorella, and the writer.

Praise for Dying to Know You (from the publisher's website):


"Chambers delivers yet another intellectually satisfying novel with equal parts philosophy and repartee, and this one may have broader teen appeal than his most recent efforts."
—The Horn Book, starred review


"Packed to the brim with challenging ideas, the latest from Chambers—winner of the Printz Award, Carnegie Medal, and Hans Christian Andersen Award, among others—is simultaneously an acutely observed (and surprising) love story; the chronicle of a young man coming into his own as an artist; and a slippery, twisting examination of the art of storytelling."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review


"Readers are hooked with snappy dialogue and keen insights; Karl is a multifaceted and likable character who will keep them engaged and rooting for him to find his way in love and in life."
—School Library Journal

July Giveaway:

I have 5 FREE copies of this cool and gritty new ya read: Quarantine. If you loved BZRK and ASHES, this new uber-cool ya novel is a great pick. It got a starred review in Booklist and was an Indie Next Pick. Kami Garcia, the author or Beautiful Creatures trilogy, says, “As original as The Hunger Games, set within the walls of a high school exactly like yours.” It’s super gritty and intense!
From the publisher:


"It was just another ordinary day at McKinley High—until a massive explosion devastated the school. When loner David Thorpe tried to help his English teacher to safety, the teacher convulsed and died right in front of him. And that was just the beginning.

A year later, McKinley has descended into chaos. All the students are infected with a virus that makes them deadly to adults. The school is under military quarantine. The teachers are gone. Violent gangs have formed based on high school social cliques. Without a gang, you’re as good as dead. And David has no gang. It’s just him and his little brother, Will, against the whole school.

In this frighteningly dark and captivating novel, Lex Thomas locks readers inside a school where kids don’t fight to be popular, they fight to stay alive."

I have 2 signed copies of this fantastic new young adult romance to give away. Heather herself will sign the 2 copies for each winner. Read my review of Love, Maybe. here
Grand Prize:

A signed copy of Love? Maybe. Sweet treats to share with friends, including candy heart-shaped balloons, Conversation Hearts candies, Ring Pops and much more…



Runner up: A signed copy of Love? Maybe..



From the cover of The Cupcake Queen:



A confection of a novel, combining big city sophistication with small town charm.

When her mother moves them from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny's life isn't what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn't talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there's Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. There are also bright spots in Hog's Hollow—like Tally, an expert in Rock Paper Scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again. A sweet novel about love, creativity, and accepting life's unexpected turns.



From the cover of Love? Maybe:




Just because Piper's birthday is on Valentine's Day does not mean she's a romantic. In fact, after watching her father and then her stepfather leave, she's pretty sure she doesn't believe in love at all. Then her friends concoct a plan to find them all Valentine's dates, and somehow Piper finds herself with the most popular guy in school. But true love never follows a plan, and a string of heartfelt gifts from a secret admirer has Piper wondering if she might be with the wrong guy.

In this heartwarming romance, true love is more than a maybe - and it might be closer than you think.

I have 5 copies of this hot new title. Win one before you can buy one!

See what I said about this novel in an earlier review:

From my blog, "Finally...a paranormal book with bite that boys will like! No sappy romantic vampires or longing for unrequited love here, just a rollicking thrill-ride that will have both boys and girls turning pages long into the dark and stormy night.



The novel starts off in a typical paranormal fashion--a teenager who is a little different finds out what he truly is, what his destiny is, and how he can never be a normal teen...but then... just when the reader thinks the book will continue in paranormal fashion, it takes a sharp left turn into an action/adventure/espionage thriller."



These wolves are way cooler than Twilight! This title will fly off the shelves. Simply post a comment on the main page under "Book Giveaway: Wolf Mark." Be sure to include your email address so that I can contact you if you win. Also include city and state--I'm just nosy like that!

The publisher advises that she can only ship to U.S. addresses. Sorry, guys! You can post if you live elsewhere but you can't win...aw...don't cry. It'll be okay.

The deadline for posting is September 15 at noon MST.

Good luck, and start posting...

August Giveaway!



Five copies of Misfit are up for grabs! Now available from Amulet Books, a fresh paranormal novel from author Jon Skovron. Here are some reviews and what other ya writers are saying:

"In an impeccably paced and unusually profound urban-fantasy novel, 16-year-old half-demon Catholic-school student Jael Thompson comes into her powers, explores her heritage and battles a tyrannical Hell beast."

— Kirkus Starred Review

“A diabolically delightful paranormal about a teen girl discovering her inner strength and power — and her potential for darkness.”

— Holly Black, author of bestselling Modern Tales of Faerie series and Curse Workers series.

“Misfit reminded me of the first time I read Neil Gaiman’s American Gods, a clever and twisty mix of old gods and new worlds. Jon Skovron’s protagonist, Jael, is the kind of heroine I can’t get enough of: strong, smart, loyal, and wickedly compelling.”

— Carrie Ryan, best-selling author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead Tossed Waves

“A refreshingly interesting story, Jon Skovron’s tale of a half-demon girl trying to figure out her place on earth—or in hell—is deftly paced and beautifully told, instantly captivating and delightfully strange. I want more, please.”
— Kiersten White, bestselling author of Paranormalcy and Supernaturally
