YA Highway Blog Lovefest!

There's only a couple of days until February 14, a day that---though it intends to celebrate togetherness---can bitterly divide people. And that sucks! Here at YA Highway, we wanted to give all our readers the chance to make the day one about love: love of any kind, not limited to romantic. We'll be hosting a blog circus (with the same format as our Road Trip Wednesdays) encouraging you and all our readers to write a Valentine blog post!

The Valentine blog posts can be a love note to anything---another blogger, a book, an author, a character, a bookstore, your beta readers...anything and anyone! And feel free to get creative (for inspiration, check out some of the fantastic posts that other bloggers put together for last year's blog lovefest)!

Write up a Valentine, and on on February 14 (this Tuesday), come back here and share the link with us! Hopefully by putting a lot of literary love in the same place, we can brighten the holiday for everyone.

And if that doesn't cheer you up, this might---we're adding a giveaway! When you enter your link in the comments of February 14's post, you'll be entered to win one of two prize packs:

Prize Pack 1
BALTHAZAR by Claudia Gray and SHIP BREAKER by Paolo Bacigalupi, with bookmarks!

Prize Pack 2
PANDEMONIUM by Lauren Oliver and AWKWARD by Marni Bates, with bookmarks!

We'll select the winners randomly using, and announce it before the Road Trip Wednesday post the next day!

  2. Hmm...I just finished being in another blogfest.

    I wonder if my scanner is working.

  3. Love this idea! Tuesday's my book review day, so I'll make a love-letter review.
    Can't wait!

  4. Very cool!I was already going to do a V-Day post so now I have a reason to show it off! Thanks!

  5. Tuesday is Terrific Teen day on my Blog. Not sure how appropriate it is to write a Valentine to a real teenager, but maybe I can make it work.

  6. Mine will be up Valentine's Morning at 5:30am EST. Please don't hate me.

  7. I guess mine is a love note to Valentine's Day itself? I go around the world in Valentine's Day.

  8. Here was mine, for VDAY Top 10 Reasons I Love Reading:
