Young Adult Giveaway Hop


In CELEBRATION 
of the 
TOTAL AWESOMENESS

YA Books... 

I am excited to GIVE ONE AWAY!!! 

Whoop! Whoop!!



Since I decided to happily proclaim my LOVE for YA even though I am decidedly not (technically) YA, I have thought a lot about WHY?  I posted some of WHY last Monday under Musings, but without meandering around the bush, THERE ARE SO MANY SERIOUSLY GREAT YA BOOKS OUT THERE!!   There's as many wonderful YA Books as their are personalities in us readers.  As one Musing blogger said (somewhere?)... the YA genre is BIG encompassing contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal, mystery... all of 'em.  It's like a BIG BUCKET of energy and daring all rolled into a learning curve. (That last bit was me, I just made that up, but it sounds good!)

Thank you to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer for bravely hosting this Giveaway along with Down the Rabbit Hole. And thank you to the 250+ other bloggers who joined in to give away GREAT YA BOOKS!!!    If you're hopping down the list (like me!) the awesome Tiffany Drew at Book Cover Justice is your next stop.  (If you're feeling random [and who doesn't occasionally?] click on the cool picture to get back to the list!)
