End-of-Summer Book Giveaway!

As summer winds down *sniff* I thought I'd celebrate by spreading the YA book love. :) I've got two awesome summer reads up for grabs!

First up?

DESTINED by Jessie Harrell

Isn't the cover gorgeous?!

Here's the description (from Goodreads):

When Psyche receives a prophecy gone horribly wrong, she learns that even the most beautiful girl in Greece can have a hideous future. Her fate? Fall in love with the one creature even the gods fear.

As she feels herself slipping closer into the arms of the prophecy, Psyche must choose between the terrifyingly tender touch she feels almost powerless to resist and the one constant she's come to expect out of life: you cannot escape what is destined.

Cool, right? :) Want more scoop on DESTINED? Go here.

I was fortunate enough to be one of Jessie's CP's. :) Her book's amazing, and since I love it so much, I wanted to share! Here's your chance to win a signed (Yes! Signed! :D) copy of DESTINED, along with a swag prize pack: a button and bookmark.

And because one cool summer read is not enough, I'm parting with another book I loved: ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins.

Here's the summary (also from Goodreads):

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris - until she meets Etienne St. Clair: perfect, Parisian (and English and American, which makes for a swoon-worthy accent), and utterly irresistible. The only problem is that he's taken, and Anna might be, too, if anything comes of her almost-relationship back home. As winter melts into spring, will a year of romantic near - misses end with the French kiss Anna - and readers - have long awaited?

I absolutely ADORE this book . . . from word one. This book achingly captures the feeling of falling in love. Plus, it really made me want to go to Paris. :)  Romance with a back-to-school setting--the perfect read to end the summer (or start the school year, depending on where you are)!

And now you can win a free copy! :) Woot!

One winner, two books.

To enter? Just tweet this contest and leave a comment below. That's it!

Once you tweet and comment, you're in.

The contest stays open for one week, closing next Tuesday at midnight.* The winner will be picked by Random.org. The contest is only open to people in the US, Canada & Mexico--sorry for not going international, but for my first contest, I'm keeping my postage low. Also, since I'm new at this giveaway thingy, I'm just dipping my pinky toe in--starting out small. :) Thanks for understanding!

So that's it! One winner, two books. :)

Yay! I can't wait for you to read them!  Happy Tuesday!
