Horrors! It's Time For Our YA Pumpkin Carving Contest!

Halloween is almost here and that means it's high time for another Great YA Highway Pumpkin Carving Contest! The rules? Submit a picture of your YA-themed pumpkin (you can comment in this post and link to your photo) by noon on Friday, November 2nd. We'll pick three winners and each winner gets an ARC. The ARCs up for grabs are:


Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Touched by Corrine Jackson


And if you need some help or inspiration, our absolutely amazing Kate Hart has done it again by making some very special YA pumpkin carving stencils that you are all welcome to use. We're highlighting a few below and to download the patterns (and there are many more to choose from), click here. More info over at Kate Hart's blog. 

Got it? Go! And to all who are in the path of Hurricane Sandy this week, we're thinking of you!

  2. These are adorable!! I love the Shadow and Bone one--though I'm not sure I have the skills to pull that off, even with the stencil :)

  5. Thanks for including Arclight among the covers, guys :-)

    I would attempt a YA pumpkin, but sadly, my carving skills are such that I can't even make symmetrical triangle eyes.

  9. I am a little saddened by the Twilight pumpkins. Oh well!

    Last year I made a Tenth Doctor pumpkin. That was FUN but it fell apart almost immediately. I think I made it a little too thin. XD

    This year, I don't really have time for pumpkins... I got married instead. =D
