It was a little unclear in the video but if you order ANY book from our online store you will get a mystery book added to your prize pack if you win. We listed off a few you could choose from, but if it doesn't matter to you we will add a random ARC from our stock! It could be one of these, but not necessarily!

Here's the list: 

-Janie Face to Face by Caroline B. Cooney 
-The Fire-Horse Girl by Kay Honeyman 
-Rise by Andrea Cremer 

Happy reading!
Rachel & Amanda 

P.S. We'd love to hear feedback on the vlog! We're trying to improve! 


  1. I am loving all of the Under the Never Sky love! That is definitely one of my favorite books from 2012! Another favorite of mine would have to be In Honor by Jessi Kirby, that is one phenomenal contemporary :0)

    I would definitely love to win the YA prize pack. YA is my favorite, after all! And RISE would be awesome for the mystery ARC :0)

    I think you gals do awesome with the vlogs, keep up the good work! And I'm pretty jealous of those bookshelves you are always sitting in front of!

    1. I'm so glad you liked it too! Amanda just read Through the Ever Night and was freaking out the entire time. Have you read that one?

      Haha, so glad you like them! They are my prize possession. ;)

    2. I haven't read Through the Ever Night yet, but it's at the top of my TBR! Unraveling is another awesome book, have you guys read that one? I am dying waiting for book two, Unbreakable, to come out :0)

    3. Yes Amanda reviewed Unraveling and she loved it too! Unbreakable is one of her next books to review, but she's caught up in The Dark Heroine and Epic Fail. LOL. That girl, she loves her romance!


  2. Oooo :] My favorite read from 2012 had to be Insurgent. I just LOVE the Divergent series and now I am patiently waiting for the third book!
    I also really liked Blood Debt by Nancy Straight. She is one of my favorite indie authors.

    Great vlog you guys! I wish I had to guts to do one. haha. maybe one day.

    I would love to win the YA prize pack. My blog is strictly YA reviews so... and also it is my favorite thing to read!
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway :D And Happy New Year!

    1. Hi Jill! Thanks so much for commenting and signing up.

      Get this...I have not read Divergent yet! *everybody throws tomatoes at me* But it's definitely on my list!

      And you totally should!! It's more awkward than nerve racking I promise!

      Happy New Year!

  3. I haven't seen you guys for awhile!! The vlog was awesome as usual :D

    My favorite read of 2012 was either Venom or Cinder...they were both SO SO SO good!

    I would like the YA prize pack more than the Middle Grade just because Middle Grade is a little too young for me!

    1. Hi again!!

      VENOM! OMG OMG OMG. SO. GOOD. If you order from our online store we'll send you BELLADONNA in a couple months!

    2. That sounds VERY temtping, but I already have a copy( I won it from Fiona Paul herself!). I'm also trying VERY hard to spend less money on books, and saving up my money for the books I really want!


Thank you for visiting our blog and reading this review. We hope you stop by the store and check out the book!
