I wanted to start 2014 off with some fun, and what's more fun than a book giveaway?
But I didn't just want to do a basic book giveaway, I wanted to make it a little extra exciting. So this is a Blind Date With a Book type giveaway, inspired by The YA Bookcase.
The YA books I've chosen to offer up cover a few different genres so hopefully there will be something that catches your eye. They are all 2014 releases and so will be pre-ordered for the winners.
There will be two winners. Everyone who enters will provide their top two "date" choices in the Rafflecopter and the winners will be informed which two books they picked and get to choose one of these two as their prize. If the book is not up for pre-order when the contest ends (Fall releases likely won't be), I'll purchase the pre-order when it becomes available.
Each of these books is either a standalone or first in a series so that you don't end up with one from your favourite series that you've already pre-ordered or the final book in a series you never started.
The wonderful authors of the books up for grabs have given you two clues to go on in picking your blind dates: the genre and a few words that describe the books, right from the mouths (well, fingers) of the people who wrote them.
Your potential blind dates:
#1: 20th Century Historical Romance:
Star-crossed, daring, independent, impossible love, high-wire adventure, pink.
#2: Contemporary Romantic Comedy:
Lighthearted, funny, sporty, swoony, thoughtful.
Decadent, dangerous, empowering, romantic.
#4: Sci-Fi Fairytale Retelling:
Adventurous, tech-y, interplanetary, romantic.
#5: Historical Fiction:
Hypnotizing, gothic, mind-altering, theatrical, romantic.
#6: Futuristic Thriller:
Intense, dark, mysterious, twisted, bloody.
#7: Realistic Fiction/Contemporary:
Gossip, small town, bad reputation, slut-shaming, secrets.
#8: Romantic Historical Thriller:

#9: High Fantasy:

#10: Gothic, (Sort-of) Retelling.

Those sound pretty amazing, right? Lots of exciting choices... good luck picking between them all!
