Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop

The 3rd Annual Young Adult Faeries & Fantasy Giveaway Hop has started! Who doesn't like fantasy or fairies? We love em'! What better way to escape the cold winter weather than to curl up with some hot cocoa and a fantastical tale, right? This hop is hosted by Kathy from I Am A Reader and ends on midnight January 15th. There are over 80 blogs participating in this hop. Here's the link to see them all!

Here's proof we met Maggie Stiefvater.
She's holding our newly signed books!
Reader Girls are doing something different this time. We recently went to an excellent book signing where we listened to, were enchanted and entertained by the one and only Maggie Stiefvater! If you've seen the author before, you'll know what we mean. She's a character and we loved meeting her. So we are going to give away to one lucky reader a SIGNED brand new paperback copy of Maggie's fantasy book, The Scorpio Races. We bought an extra copy to give away and here it is! 

Even if you've read the book, this is NEW and signed by the author so just enter! Our giveaway is open to US readers only (high postage costs-we apologize to international readers). 

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
YA fantasy
Paperback, 435 pages
Published April 2013 by Scholastic (first published October 8th 2011)

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

  1. Maggie Stiefvater is my favorite author! I loved the Wolves of Mercy Falls books and this books sounds like it won't disappoint either! Thank you for the chance to win!

  2. You are welcome, Melissa! Good luck!

  3. I really, really want this book. I would have given some really disgusting fangirl "squees' and embarrassed myself horribly had I been with you when you met the author. I'm so glad you got to meet Maggie Stiefvater; I'd love to meet her, too, I could, of course, be satisfied with a beautifully autographed book. *sigh*
