Thanks to HarperTeen and Authors on the Web, I also have 4 ARCs of Withering Tights by Louise Rennison for four winners! Here is the synopsis of Withering Tights if you haven't heard of it:
Wow. This is it. This is me growing up. On my own, going to Performing Arts College. This is good-bye, Tallulah, you long, gangly thing, and hellooooo, Lullah, star of stage.Four (4) winners dwelling in either the US or Canada will receive a lovely ARC of this book! To enter, please fill out this form here. This giveaway ends Friday, June 17, 2011.
Tallulah Casey is ready to find her inner artist. And some new mates. And maybe a boy or two or three.
The ticket to achieving these lofty goals? Enrolling in a summer performing arts program, of course. She's bound for the wilds of Yorkshire Dales—eerily similar to the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights. Tallulah expects new friends, less parental interference, and lots of drama. Acting? Tights? Moors? Check, check, check.
What she doesn't expect is feeling like a tiny bat's barging around in her mouth when she has her first snog.
Bestselling author Louise Rennison returns with her trademark wit, a hilarious new cast, and a brand-new cheeky heroine who is poised to discover plenty of opportunities for (mis)adventure!
Diversity in YA Giveaway
Several weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending the Diversity in YA event at Books of Wonder in NYC. It was amazing meeting some of the loveliest authors I've ever known for the first time (Cindy, Bemi) and seeing Malinda again. I've also gotten a few SIGNED books to give away to one lucky winner!
8th Grade Superzero by Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich
Ash by Malinda Lo
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
Fury of the Phoenix by Cindy Pon
...plus you can't see it very well, but you also get two spectacular postcards featuring original Silver Pheonix artwork. Seriously, the art is so beautiful it takes my breath away.

This Is Teen Giveaway
And then, last Thursday, I had the opportunity to attend the This Is Teen launch party, hosted by Scholastic, and featuring Libba Bray, Meg Cabot, and Maggie Stiefvater! Talk about being seriously starstruck. It was wonderful to meet these amazing and talented ladies, and, yes, I did get goodies for you guys. One winner will receive the following four SIGNED books:
Forever (ARC) by Maggie Stiefvater
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
Abandon by Meg Cabot
Yes, that is a signed ARC of Forever. Yes, I am giving it away to one of you. No, I am not crazy. (Oh, and you should read Beauty Queens as well: it's flipping fantastic so far! And Abandon is pretty sweet if you're into Meg Cabot retelling Greek myths!) To enter, please fill out this form here.
