YA Highway's 3rd Anniversary Giveaway!

YA Highway is three years old! We can't believe it -- it truly seems like yesterday we were combing through layouts and coming up with blog names.

Over the past three years, we've found agents, gotten book deals, had babies (2 so far!), launched popular features like Road Trip Wednesday, Field Trip Friday and the Bookmobile book club, and become great friends -- not just with each other, but also with you guys. Your enthusiasm and continued readership is the reason we exist, and why YA Highway owns our hearts. 

This giveaway is our thanks to you. In truth, we turned three a couple months ago, but held off on our Anniversary Giveaway until after BEA and ALA. Yes, that means ARCs. Lots of ARCs. CRAZY amounts of ARCs. And much more! Take a look....

THE GRAND PRIZE

Your choice of a $99 Nook Simple Touch or a Kindle Touch, along with three ebooks by YA Highway authors (choose from Divergent, Insurgent, The Duff, Shut Out, A Midsummer's Nightmare, Like Mandarin, Wanderlove, or a preorder of Nobody But Us). WOW!!

  44. I remember when YA Highway was a wee thing and now it's grown so big! Congrats on the three years!
    I blogged on the new and improved Teens Writing For Teens: http://teenswritingforteens.blogspot.com/2012/07/this-week-in-publishing.html

    It's under the "This Week In Things We're Really Excited About" subheader. And I was (sort of) joking on the post, but do y'all really get paid in books? (Potentially my dream job.) This right here is more books I have on my bookshelf at home (the library is wonderful haha).
