Over at The Contemps, we've declared June Contemporary YA month (it also happens to be the birthday month of Sarah Dessen and Gayle Forman and yours truly--yay!), and other bloggers are joining in to create a whole summer of real-life reading. I'm so into it. So to make up for this blog's long absence, and to celebrate June Contemps, I'm giving away these four books:
That's Sarah Dessen's What Happened to Goodbye (advanced reader copy), Jay Asher's Thirteen Reasons Why (new paperback!), Nova Ren Suma's Imaginary Girls (hardcover) and Libba Bray's Beauty Queens (advanced reader copy).
I have read them, I heart them, and you will too. (And okay, I know a couple of these skirt contemp lines, but all are rooted in contemp spirit, which basically means that they're realistic fiction--as opposed to otherworldly stuff.)
To win this set of awesome, answer this question in the comments: What's the best Contemporary YA novel you've read in the past year? If you're a strictly paranormal/dystopian/fantasy reader, name a Contemp you'd like to read soon (and then go get it!). You can get some ideas from The Contemps list of members' books.
I'll post a randomly chosen winner next Wednesday. Happy June!
PS-Every Thursday this month, Claire June is giving away a Contemp novel too, so check her out.
PPS-I forgot to announce a winner for the last Win-It Wednesday, pre-blog outage! The randomly chosen winner of Morgan Matson's fabulous Amy & Roger's Epic Detour is... Jessica! Send me your address, J.
