Harlequin Teen Books Giveaway

How would you like to win free books?

I had the opportunity to meet Natashya Wilson, publisher of Harlequin Teen, at Newark Airport (of all places) after last year's YALSA YA Lit Symposium while we waited for rides home. She's been keeping me up to date on exciting things going on with the Harlequin Teen brand and imprint, things she will tell all of you in person when she makes her guest post here on Monday, August 17.

In the meantime, I have two Harlequin Teen books to give away!

First, there's My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent. From Harlequin's description:
A scream bursts from her throat, and someone dies. Kaylee Cavanaugh doesn't know why she is compelled to scream—she knows only that she can’t stop it. And now, just as she's started dating the hottest guy in school, classmates are dying—and Kaylee keeps screaming...

Then, I have Intertwined by Gena Showalter. From Harlequin's description:

Aden Stone has friends. They just happen to be the four human souls living inside him. Everyone thinks he's crazy, but he doesn't mind. For months he's been having visions of a beautiful girl—a girl who will either save him or destroy him. Together they'll enter a dark world of intrigue and danger . . . but not everyone will come out alive.




One or both of these can be yours! Here are the rules: Leave a comment saying which book or books you'd like. On Monday, August 17, I will have Henry pick the winners at random from the comments to this post and announce the winners at the same time as Natashya's guest post.

Here is a picture of Henry enjoying a YA novel:




I promise you. He's very fair.

So comment, and one or both of these books can be yours! Stop back here on Monday to see what Natashya has to say about Harlequin Teen and its future in the market. (I also asked her to answer a couple of frequently asked-by-librarians questions.)

Editing to add: Thanks to the very generous people at Harlequin, I now have TWO copies of each book to give away. Very exciting!

I'd like My Soul to Take. (I saw the new Harlequin Teen stuff up on Amazon's front page the other day and wondered if it was good.)

Gena Showalter is a pretty big name in Romance; I'm thrilled to bits that she's taking on YA. I'm out of the US, so I'm out of the running, but you'll have to tell me how/if she tones down her usual for YA, or how she works it in.

I've read My Soul To Take, it was really good!
I'd like to win Intertwined. It will be my first Gena Showalter ... *cross fingers*.

Jamie said...

I would love both of these books because I have heard so much about them. But if I was to win I would just take either one of them to be fair to other people.

I'd love to have Intertwined by Gena. I already have MSTT if I can find where my teenage boys put it lol. Both of these are a favorite author of mine with there adult book and I've loved Gena other YA novels so i'm thinking this one should be fantastic too.

Lilibeth Ramos said...

I would like to be entered for both these books because they are both amazing authors (even though I haven't anything by Gena but she's awesome either way, lol.)

I'd happily accept either of these for my library--I'd love to have these in our Teen Zone but the budget (alas) only goes so far!

Linda said...

I would love My Soul to Take, it looks really great.

Jo Ann said...

Intertwined seems like an interesting premise. I'd love to get my hands on a copy of this. I live for a good tale, and one that I can pass onto my teens.(Am rubbing catnip on my entry! and crossing fingers) Thanks.

Sam said...

I'd gladly take either, but put me down for intertwined!

Julia K. Riley said...

I'd like either or both! I'm very interested in what Harlequin is doing with the teen imprint.

Trevor said...

Hmm...either one looks neat, but I think the cover to intertwined is hotter. =)

Dawn M. said...

Oooo, I would love to have either (or both) of these books. I'm already a big fan of Rachel Vincent and have all her other books. I've never read any of Gena Showalter's books though. This would be a great chance to give one a try.

Thanks! :0)

I am interested in both books. They are both getting such great buzz and they are both so unique in concept, I can't wait to read them.

Thanks for the contest, Carlie, and I'm glad you're still updating your blog.

I think my teens would like both books, but Intertwined might appeal to my male readers. Either or/or both would be fine.

Wishing you much and speedy success in your current job search.
