Fabulous Followers Giveaway!

To celebrate hitting 200 followers on Twitter, I promised to do a giveaway - and I'm making good on my promise! Read on for your chance to win these five fabulous YA books...

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

The blurb: "There was a time when love was the most important thing in the world. People would go the end of the earth to find it. They would tell lies for it. Even kill for it.

"Then, at last, they found the cure."

Numbers by Rachel Ward
The blurb: "Since the day her mother died, Jem has known about the numbers. When she looks in someone's eyes, she can see the date they will die.

"Life is hard, until she meets a boy called Spider. Suddenly her world seems brighter.

"But on a trip to London, Jem foresees a chain of events that will shatter their lives for ever..."

Ultraviolet by R J Anderson

The blurb: "Once upon a time there was a girl who was special.

"This is not her story.

"Unless you count the part where I killed her."

The Declaration by Gemma Malley

The blurb: "My name is Anna and I shouldn't be here. I shouldn't exist. But I do.

"Anna hides her secret diary away each night because she doesn't want to get into trouble for breaking the rules. Life in Grange Hall is governed by rules, rules that have to be obeyed in order to make up for breaking the biggest rule of all. Being born.

"But when Peter arrives and starts to tell Anna shocking things about the outside world, she learns to question the rules and, with Peter, struggles to escape the past and find a better future."

0.4 by Mike Lancaster

The blurb: "My name is Kyle Straker and I don't exist any more.

"So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded on old audio tapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax. But perhaps they contain the history of a past world...

"If what the tapes say are true, it means that everything we think we know is a lie.

"And if everything is a lie does that mean that we are, too?"

  1. Oh my gosh- there are so many books that have rocked this year. Divergent, Beastly, If I Fall...there are too many to list! I will tweet the crap outta your contest, sista! Sweet contest, Kat!

  2. There were a TON of great books this year... Bloodlines, If I Fall, but my fave was Divergent. It caught me from page 1. :)


  3. Numbers has impressed me this year because in reality alot of people take life for granted and when I read this book I thought to myself that I need to appreciate life more because one day it'll all be over and when it happens will I have lived life to the fullest

  4. Oh, always tough... but I think, of the ones I've managed to read, I liked SHATTER ME the best. Amazing book. Awesome contest, Kat - I'll tweet it to death!

  5. I was most impressed by Anna Dressed in Blood. Now THERE'S a book that made me scared to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

  6. Half-Blood was the best book I read so far this year. I loved all the action scenes and romance.


  7. I can't limit it to just one. Some of the standouts are: Skinjacker series (Everlost, Everwild, Everfound) by Neil Shusterman; Lemonade Mouth by Mark Peter Hughes; and The Hunger Games series (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) by Suzanne Collins.

  8. Hmmm, I supposed for impressed I was more impressed by I Am J, was really worried that the book would be too "gritty" for me to connect with which turned out to be not a problem at all. However my favorite book was Mastiff by Tamora Pierce, I just love the setting and the protagonist too much.


  9. Forest of Hands and Teeth. This is the first book I've cried during since Where the Red Fern Grows in elementary school.!/julianalbrandt/status/149233795340582913

  10. I am new to YA. Not sure what rock I was living under but Misty Provencher's Cornerstones captured my imagination and connected in a strange way to the way I have been raised. It gets me. The book, the author and the story are seeds in the garden of my soul.

  11. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi because of how the author managed to capture the heroine's voice so perfectly!

  12. Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare - The writing flowed perfectly, the characters seemed real and right in front of me, and I couldn't be happier with it. Not to mention that it's the only book I sobbed over this year!!/Bri_McBride/status/152802924412674048

  13. Great giveaway! I've been wanting to read 0.4 and Ultraviolet especially, so thank you for the chance. :)

    Congrats on reaching 200 followers on Twitter! Hope you have a lovely new year. :)

  14. Awesome, Giveaway! I've been craving to read Divergent the entire year! The book that impressed me the most was Inheritance by Christopher Paolini. I've waited for that last book for the past three years and I cried to death when it ended. I started the Eragon series back in 4th grade and it has been with me all the way till 10th grade. It had an impressive ending but I am still grieving over the fact that it was the last book. Besides, Inheritance, I absolutely fell in love with Anna and the French Kiss. These two book have made my year :)

    Thank you so much!
