Google+ YA Romantics: Freebie Friday 1

Freebie Friday 1

Who doesn't love free stuff?

Today's the kick-off of a new blog feature -- Freebie Friday.

It won't happen every single Friday, but I'll try to do it at least once a month. That's how often my book pile starts teetering.

Here's how it works: I'll tell you what's up for grabs, and all you have to do is leave me a comment.

If you're not interested in the freebie, or not eligible, you can still leave me a comment -- I love them!  Just tell me not to put your name in.

Tomorrow morning, the randomizer will pick a name and that person can choose any book in the pile.
EDITED: This Freebie Friday has ended -- I drew the winner the morning of Saturday the 14th. But check back on future Fridays!

Because these are all books I own, this Freebie Friday is US only -- my fantastic and wonderful international followers can enter my Divergent/Insurgent giveaway here.

Here's the pile for this Freebie Friday:


Sisters of Glass by Stephanie Hemphill
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Born Wicked (ARC) by Jessica Spotswood
Catching Jordan (ARC) by Miranda Keneally
Ghost Flower by Michele Jaffe
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Spellbound by Rachel Hawkins
Shatter Me by Tareheh Mafi
A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

First thing tomorrow morning, I'll randomize all the names and contact the winner. 

If you're a regular, I'll find you.

If you don't usually comment -- I'm so glad you did! Just make sure I can find you: blogger profile, Twitter handle, Goodreads friend. I'd prefer that you didn't leave an email (spam, ugh!) 

But don't be too mysterious.Last time I did a giveaway I stalked poor Juliababyjen all over the internet. but I found her... mwah ha ha!

NOTE: This Freebie Friday ended so Blogger won't let you comment on this post. But please check back on Future Fridays!

    1. Yes, my family is afraid of me. They call me The Big Thrower Outer.
      My parents were packrats, so I'm always clearing stuff out.
      And, trust me, I have hundreds if not thousands of books. I just keep running out of space!!

  4. OMG! I have been dying to read Shatter Me by Tereheh Mafi. I've heard that it was amazing. But my local library doesn't have it yet.BY the way, this is an awesome idea I might just have to copy it. Thanks 4 this awesome giveaway!
