I promised you guys I will have an awesome event and I keep my promises!

YOUNG READERS blog is now 2 years old!



calls for a celebration!

I'm going to post giveaways, excerpts etc. weekly from now on!

FIRST up is the giveaway of a book that I'm very interested in....

I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look.

Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of a girl lying on a bench.

A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness.

And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.

On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.

Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.

Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.

Harlequin TEEN was amazing enough to offer a FINISHED copy of Ink for giveaway.

Unfortunately, the giveaway is for North American addresses only.

Not to worry I have loads of INTERNATIONAL giveaways coming up as well my international peeps!

  3. Happy Blogiversary! I've seen this book around but I never knew what it was about. It sound amazing. The whole idea of moving to another country fascinates me so I hope that Ink has a lot of details about Japan!

  4. Happy Blogoversary!I can not wait to read this book. I actually studied abroad in Japan and can't wait to see how Amanda portrays the cultural customs and getting acquainted to the different school system.

  5. I lived in Japan for a year, and I love all things Japanese! I'm dying to read this, thanks so much for the opportunity!

  6. Happy Blogoversary! I don't even know where to start with what fascinates me about this book. First the cover is just absolutely amazing!! The story is so intriguing and I might be getting my hopes up just a little bit about this book. Thanks for the chance to win it!

  7. I'm really fascinated with the Japanese culture. They have wonderfully integrated modern and ancient tradition with their lives.

  8. This book sounds really original and I can't wait to see what happens. I haven't read any Japanese related fiction before, so I'm eager to read that aspect of it too. Happy 2nd Blogoversary! Thanks for an awesome giveaway!!

  9. I LOVE Japanese action novels! Those samurai and shurikens and ohhh the katanas!!!! :D

    1. Oh man, I didn't see that this was only for North Anerican addresses only!! Could you please ignore my entry? :X Sorry! I do still love my samurai and ninjas though..

  10. I love that this book takes place in Japan. It's so interesting and it must be quite a culture shock for the main character. On a shallow note, the cover is just so pretty I think I would pick it up without even knowing what the book's about :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Pictures moving.... That is all that I can say. Fascinating! And I love the Japanese culture. I love the cover! I just love this book, and I have not even read it yet. I hope that I still love it after!

  16. They can psyche out a person and let them think that they have no
    chance of winning. I strongly advise which you use the first suggestion to figure out your number of outs after which it
    double that amount. It is just experience that allows some of us to hide them better then others.
