Valentine's Day Blog Lovefest!

Happy Valentine's Day! 

We're excited to spread the love---and not just the romantic kind!---to celebrate. Today we're giving all our readers the chance to make the day one about love by hosting a blog circus (with the same format as our Road Trip Wednesdays) encouraging you to write a Valentine blog post! Please link your blog post for everyone in the comments, then click around to see everyone else's lovely posts.


And the bonus: if you link to a Valentine's blog post, you're automatically entered to win one of two prize packs of books and bookmarks!

Before we get to everyone else, we also wanted to send out a Valentine to our readers:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
YA Highway is bursting with love
For every one of you!

And, now that we've set the low bar, we can't wait to hear from you!
