Young Adult Giveaway Hop



Paper or Plastic
by Vivi Barnes.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult.
Publication: February 3rd 2015 by Entangled: Teen.
Welcome to SmartMart, where crime pays minimum wage...

Busted. Alexis Dubois just got caught shoplifting a cheap tube of lipstick at the local SmartMart. She doesn’t know what’s worse—disappointing her overbearing beauty-pageant-obsessed mother for the zillionth time…or her punishment. Because Lex is forced to spend her summer working at the store, where the only things stranger than the staff are the customers.

Now Lex is stuck in the bizarro world of big-box retail. Coupon cutters, jerk customers, and learning exactly what a “Code B” really is (ew). And for added awkwardness, her new supervisor is the totally cute—and adorably geeky—Noah Grayson. Trying to balance her out-of-control mother, her pitching position on the softball team, and her secret crush on the school geek makes for one crazy summer. But ultimately, could the worst job in the world be the best thing that ever happened to her?


The Designed (The Designed Series #1)
by Kate Tailor.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: January 16th 2015 by BookBaby.
What if the next new drug was you? Raleigh’s body produces a drug that could define the future of medicine if the dangerous world surrounding it doesn't kill her first.

Eighteen-year old Raleigh Groves can sense disease in others and is suffering from her own unexplained illness as well. After years and dozens of doctor visits, she has given up hope of ever finding a cure, let alone a diagnosis. Then she meets a man who explains that her talent and curse are linked. Her body produces a drug, Lucidin, which allows her to sense others. She’s rare, and the drug she makes is coveted.

Rho has spent the last few years on the run. The Lucidin that is racing through his system makes him a target. Surrounded by addicts and dealers on one side and scientists and doctors on the other, he has to rely on his wits and his team to stay one step ahead. So far he has stayed afloat, but some of his brothers haven’t been as lucky.
As Rho and Raleigh collide they must face the perilous world of Lucidin together. Nothing is black-and-white and Raleigh must decide where her alliances lie. Sometimes the hardest heart to sense is your own


Nowhere But Here (Thunder Road #1)
by Katie McGarry.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, MC.
Publication: May 26th 2015 by Harlequin Teen.
An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.

Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both.

Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down.

No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.




Jesse's Girl (Hundred Oaks)
by Miranda Kenneally.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: July 7th 2015 by Sourcebooks Fire.
Everyone at Hundred Oaks High knows that career mentoring day is a joke. So when Maya Henry said she wanted to be a rock star, she never imagined she’d get to shadow *the* Jesse Scott, Nashville’s teen idol.

But spending the day with Jesse is far from a dream come true. He’s as gorgeous as his music, but seeing all that he’s accomplished is just a reminder of everything Maya’s lost: her trust, her boyfriend, their band, and any chance to play the music she craves. Not to mention that Jesse’s pushy and opinionated. He made it on his own, and he thinks Maya’s playing back up to other people’s dreams. Does she have what it takes to follow her heart—and go solo?

This book is amazing. And I read it without reading the others first.


Water So Deep
by Nichole Giles.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: February 2nd 2015 by Jelly Bean Publishing.
Seventeen-year-old Emma Harris is drowning on dry land.

No one knows what’s happening to her, and she’d like to keep her evolution from human to mermaid a secret, but the truth is getting harder and harder to hide. From her adoptive family, from her friends, and especially from the irresistible James Phelps.

Her time in the ocean is spent dodging a possessive merman, while her time on land is split between caring for her special-needs brother and squeezing in every last possible moment of human life. She soon realizes falling for James is unavoidable when he constantly comes to Emma’s rescue and somehow manages to see through her carefully constructed icy facade to the vulnerability she lives with every day. Everything about James makes Emma yearn for a life on land she just can't have.

When Emma’s brother disappears on her watch, James is the only person she trusts to help her save him. But even if they can save her brother, nothing can prevent her return to the sea. Whether she likes it or not, Emma is changing—unable to breathe without yielding to the tide—and it's only a matter of time before she's forced to surrender forever.

  10. I recently read Red Queen, Young Elites, A Court of Thorns and Roses and the Fire and Thorns books (which to me, had similar vibes), and they were all very good. For something different, I would suggest Me, and Earl, and the Dying Girl. It was, as Andrews described it himself, a funny book about something not funny.

  16. One series I'm reading is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs. There is a 3rd part due out soon called Library of Souls. I loved these books and can't wait for the third one. Another one I'd recommend is the Asylum series by Madeleine Roux. The third part of this one is also due out soon called Catacomb :)

  23. Fifteenth Summer by Michelle Dalton! It came out a couple years ago and I got it then but didn't read it until recently. It was such a sweet feel-good book.

  24. I love Pierce Brown's work. Golden Son was his release this year, but if you haven't read Red Rising, you'll need to do so. Red Rising was released as YA, but it's really more an adult book - both books are (at least I think so). His work is beautiful and he's shown tremendous growth over the course of the past year, in spite of being outrageously talented to begin with.
