A new one, a favorite one, and an underrated one: A giveaway

It's March. It's supposed to be spring. We are getting up to another foot of snow tonight.

I don't know about anyone else, but it's been a really tough winter for me. And because of that, I want to do something good for someone else. So I'm going to do a surprise giveaway. This is a giveaway of three books, picked for very specific purposes. You enter once for all three of them.

This giveaway will consist of one new book, one favorite book, and one underrated book. Two are contemporary novels. One is a brand new fantasy novel coming out. Ready?

First up is the new book:


I haven't had a chance to read Bridget Zinn's Poison yet, but I am so excited to do, and I say that as a non-fantasy reader. It comes out this month, and you can learn more about the book and about Zinn's life at her website.

Next up is the favorite book:



I'm an unabashed fan of Courtney Summers's books, and Fall for Anything is my favorite of her contemporary titles. It's quiet. It's literary. And it packs a punch. I love this book and I admire Courtney and her writing greatly.


Finally, the underrated book:


Post-high school decision-making, Central American travel, backpacking culture, and maybe, just maybe, the start of a new possible love? Bonus points in this book for illustrations. Reading Wanderlove made me want to get away. If you loved Gayle Forman's Just One Day or Nina LaCour's The Disenchantments but didn't read Kirsten Hubbard's book, it's a fabulous read alike to both those titles.

The paperback of Wanderlove comes out March 12, so you'll get a copy of that!


Want to enter? Fill out the form. It's limited to US and Canadian residents only and I'll pick a winner on or around March 25.

  1. Poison sounds like it could be pretty great! I do love good fantasy and have been looking for something since finishing Shadow and Bone.

    You really can't go wrong with any of Courtney Summers' books. It's been a long time since I read FFA so I'm thinking a complete reread of her books is needed.

    Wanderlove is a book I'm so excited to read. I don't have it yet but it's on a very short list of books I'm planning on buying next, along with The Disenchantments actually. I absolutely loved Just One Day though.

  2. POISON *is* great! Hope you get to read it soon!

  3. Fall for Anything was my first foray into CS's work and I am still regretting, years later, swapping it on Goodreads Swap (RIP). Now I need a new copy!

  4. I am always looking for new-to-my-students (and me) edgy fiction. I have a pretty large group of girls that I can't keep satisfied in their hunger for this type of novel. Truly appreciate the heads up about Courtney Summers and this book. The other two sound great also!

    1. Ohhhhh -- yes, your girls who like edgy books will find a LOT to get out of Summers's books.
