Bookish Updates!

I've gotten a few emails from various publishers this week about awesome things going on with them, and I definitely want to pass the info on to you guys! So here we go:

The Contests: 

You can win an ARC of Suzanne Young's A Want so Wicked, the sequel to A Need so Beautiful, and trust me, you do NOT want to miss either of these books. So much emotion, intrigue, and hot boys.

Also, do not forget to enter for an ARC of Gretchen McNeil's Ten, which is seriously amazing and mindblowing and twisty and achy and plenty of other great things. Romance and death. Oh yes.

You can also win an ARC of J.A. London's Darkness Before Dawn, which is another book you don't want to miss. Post-apocalyptic vampires, done seriously well with some great twists. Check it out.

There are plenty of other awesome Goodreads giveaways going on as well, but the three above are ones I can definitely recommend, but make sure you check these out too: Through To You (OMG want!), Defiance (OMG also want times a million), The Whispering House, The Other Normals, Invisible Sun (Black Hole Sun #2), The Lost Girl, and The Lost Code.

Epic Reads and Story Crush also have weekly giveaways going on through April. Don't miss it.

Follow Pitch Dark Books on twitter all month long for some special tweetstakes, including a Die for Me paperback, and galley giveaways of Fall From Grace and Dark Eden 2. Not to mention, they just rock.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Teen will be doing a prom-themed giveaway this month, so make sure you keep tabs on their Facebook page!

The Books of Note:

Though I definitely don't read enough of it, I love Middle Grades... and Marissa Burt's Storybound is Harper's Book of the Month! You can browse inside of it here, or just straight up purchase it on Amazon, B&N or IndieBound.

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows is the Epic Reads April Pick, and all month long there will be giveaways, discussions, author chat and more!

With Prom Season just around the corner, there are several great books that deal with Prom which you definitely shouldn't miss! Check out Illuminate by Aimee Agresti, Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber, Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey (a total favorite of mine!), and Ditched by Robin Mellom to get you in the prom season mood!

The Things to Make You Want More: 

You can download the Epic Reads Book Club Sampler starting Monday, with sneak peeks from several awesome upcoming Harper books, including A Want so Wicked, Something Strange and Deadly, Tiger Lily, Fall From Grace, The Lost Code and Thumped.

Harper also has some ebook promotions going on, as well some other chapter samplers!

So that's what's going on in the YA/MG world right now. Check back periodically for more, and good luck on those of you entering the contests!
