Google+ YA Romantics: My Not-Going-to-ALA Giveaway

My Not-Going-to-ALA Giveaway

Not going to ALA? That is, the American Library Association Conference? I'm not.

I'm a little jealous of the people who get to go to conferences, rub shoulders with famous authors, meet other bloggers and hear about new releases.

But that's okay, we can still have fun.

Every day during ALA (Jan 20-24) I'll be collecting entries for my...


Not-Going-to-ALA-Mystery-Box-of-Swag!

The winner will get to choose up to 6 ARCs from my personal collection -- books published in January and some yet-to-be published.

Every day I will reveal one (or more) of the items that the winner can choose to load in the box. One of them is...


Don't Breathe a Word
by Holly Cupala

This book was fantastic. Look for my thoughts about it in tomorrow's Standalone Saturday.

THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER. FOR NEWS OF MY LATEST, CHECK MY BLOG BANNER!

  4. There are so many amazing books out and coming out this year. I was finally able to put a hold on Cinder at the library and that is all I have been able to think about! Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  5. I'm not exactly sure what ALA is, let alone what it stands for...

  6. I'm not getting to go either - but this is an awesome giveaway idea :o)

    Hmm...What book I'd be on the hunt for...Maybe an ARC of ENCHANTED? There are so many good-looking books that have either just released or will be this year, I honestly don't know how to narrow it down to one particular book to hunt for. Maybe that means it's a good thing I'm not making it? ;o)

  7. "Of Poseidon"! I can't wait to read this. The cover is gorgeous and it sounds like an awesome story. :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. I know this is really sad...but I can't think of a book coming out this year. I think I am a little tired. LOL

    I think an ARC of Enchanted would be greatly appreciated however. :)

    1. I usually keep on top of what's coming out but Of Poseidon I never heard of .... until now. It looks good!

      Delete
  15. Speaking of ALA, I'm actually going to the annual one this year (first time ever) and I'm so excited. No idea yet which books or authors I'm gonna get to see but...eep! :)

    But if I was going to mid-winter, then I'd probably keep an eye out for Incarnate. I know a lot of people have read it already, but I haven't. So that would be exciting.

    Anyway, also wanted to mention that I'm subscribed to your posts under the email: quailsrock23(at)yahoo(dot)com

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  17. Honestly, I don't know what I'd do if I went to ALA. I'd probably jump up and down thinking, "Real Authors! Awesome!!" Apparently, I live in a box...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thanks! This is amazing. : )
    There are SO many awesome books coming out soon! I don't have enough room on my shelves (never mind time to actually read them)!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Err... honestly? I'd freak out. I can't just pick one book- that's too hard! :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. So many books coming out this year that I'm looking forward to! But I'm sure Clockwork Princess wouldn't be there yet.... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hmmm....how about Pure by Jennifer Armentrout...or Bitterblue by Kristen Cashore...The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't know there are so many authors and books to choose from!

    ReplyDelete
  23. If I could get my hands on one book at ALA it would be Insurgent by Veronica Roth:) Thanks for the generous giveaway!

    1. Sorry, Marybelle! I priced the cost of mailing the box overseas and it ranged from $27 to $45. I wish there was an International Media Mail rate.

      But I hope you enjoy your comments contest book, which I just mailed!

  25. I've never really been to anything like ALA or BEA so I really don't know what books they have there xD

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm not going to ALA either so we can wallow in our misery together ;) Oh wait, we can't 'cause you're about to make someone very happy! Lol
    If I was going, I think I'd definitely look for BZRK, the new series by Michael Grant. It's supposed to be interactive and stuff. Very excited for it's release! Also, I would love it if they would tell us when the sequel to Blood Red Road is coming out...

  39. If I went to ALA, I would be on the lookout for Insurgent even though I knew it wasn't going to be there! :)

    1. I heard that Insurgent wasn't there. Which is too bad. But made me feel slightly less jealous. And having to stand in line all day for Bitterblue? I guess I would have tried to tag-team with friends.

  40. I would look for Born Wicked, and Hemlock if I was going to ALA.
