THE “WE LOVE BOOKS. WE LOVE BLOGS.” PROMO.
I say we like there’s more than one of me, but there’s not. It’s just me. And I love books. And I love blogs.

So here’s the thing - if you are a book blog with a focus on YA, reblog this post, and I’ll be rounding you all up in a giant masterpost of promos that I will then share with all of our followers. Because I like you, and without you, this blog couldn’t exist.

I only ask that you reblog instead of like because some of you run your blogs as sideblogs and so I will then know which blog to use, or run multiple blogs, and it just makes things easier.

I will stop cataloging blogs in two weeks (August 26) and will have the promo up on September 1st. Please reblog by then or you will not be included.

Thank you and keep spreading the YA love!

[EDIT] While I appreciate you following the blog (and I do I do I love it!), if you choose not to follow it for whatever reason and want to be on the list anyway, go ahead and reblog. I ain’t gonna hate just ‘cause you want your dash clean.

This is such a great idea!

Books to Read - [Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols]

Heaven Beach, South Carolina, is anything but, if you live at the low-rent end of town. All her life, Leah Jones has been the grown-up in her family, while her mother moves from boyfriend to boyfriend, letting any available money slip out of her hands. At school, they may diss Leah as trash, but she’s the one who negotiates with the landlord when the rent’s not paid. At fourteen, she’s the one who gets a job at the nearby airstrip.

But there’s one way Leah can escape reality. Saving every penny she can, she begs quiet Mr. Hall, who runs an aerial banner-advertising business at the airstrip and also offers flight lessons, to take her up just once. Leaving the trailer park far beneath her and swooping out over the sea is a rush greater than anything she’s ever experienced, and when Mr. Hall offers to give her cut-rate flight lessons, she feels ready to touch the sky.

By the time she’s a high school senior, Leah has become a good enough pilot that Mr. Hall offers her a job flying a banner plane. It seems like a dream come true… but turns out to be just as fleeting as any dream. Mr. Hall dies suddenly, leaving everything he owned in the hands of his teenage sons: golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson. And they’re determined to keep the banner planes flying.

Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business—until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers—and the consequences could be deadly.

If she is to survive, Meliara must learn a whole new way of fighting-with wits and words and secret alliances.

Liam “Hunter” Blake hates the Reapers MC. Born and raised a Devil’s Jack, he knows his duty. He’ll defend his club from their oldest enemies-the Reapers-using whatever weapons he can find. But why use force when the Reapers’ president has a daughter who’s alone and vulnerable? Hunter has wanted her from the minute he saw her, and now he has an excuse to take her.

Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club’s president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger-a man who isn’t afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn’t afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he’s The One.

Or so she thinks.

Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.

[1/2] The Darkling in The Grisha Trilogy - Leigh Bardugo
He smiled. “Go on, stamp your foot, fight your true nature. All the while, your country suffers.”

"Because of you!"

"Because I put my trust in a girl who cannot stand the thought of her own potential."

"I know what you feel when you’re with the tracker," he said.

"I doubt that."

He gave a dismissive wave. “No, not the absurd pining you’ve yet to outgrow. I know the truth in your heart. The loneliness. The growing knowledge of your own difference. He leaned in closer. “The ache of it.”

"I don’t know what you’re talking about."

"It will never fade, Alina. It will only grow worse, no matter how many scarves you hide behind or what lies you tell, no matter how far or how fast you run. There are no others like us, Alina. And there never will be.”

What are you really studying?”
He leans back to look at her. “The statistical probability of love at first sight.”
"Very funny," she says. "What is it really?"
"I’m serious."
"I don’t believe you."
He laughs, then lowers his mouth so that it’s close to her ear. “People who meet in airports are seventy-two percent more likely too fall for each other than people who meet anywhere else.”
