How About Some Free Books?

Sorry to be misleading, but they're not from me. Don't throw tomatoes, yet; I have good news! I do know of a place, however, where they are offering a contest/drawing for some of the hottest books to come out this year, and that place is the YA Highway. (Link: They are celebrating their two year anniversary, and what better way than with a contest to win some free books?

I know. I love them, too.

To enter there are two requirements that must be met:  the person entering must follow the YA Highway, and they must live in the United States or Canada for a chance to win most of the books offered. There is, however, an international prize of a signed copy of City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare. Talk about EPIC!!

As if the international prize itself isn't amazing enough, there are other books available to be won such as:  Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafia, The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney, and After Obsession by Carrie Jones and Steven E. Wadel. And those are only a few.

Personally, if I could win any book off the list, I would choose Shatter Me. What drew my attention to the book was the trailer which I first found on Facebook a few weeks ago. The first and only thing that passed my mind when I saw it was, "Wow!" After watching it a few times, I was finally able to think, "If I get my book published, I want the book trailer to be that awesome."

Even though I'm an avid reader, I find myself amazed by the beauty and majesty that words can create when pieced together correctly; how they can send tingles down your spine at a mere description. This one minute trailer is one of those wonderful examples. It might just be my opinion, but I suggest you take a peek and let me know what you think.

Which book(s) offered from the YA Highway would you like to win most?
