Reading Road Trip Stop: North Carolina

Thanks to Britta (ILikeTheseBooks) and Hafsah (IceyBooks) for hosting this fun hop!

Welcome to the "Tar Heel State" part of the Reading Road Trip!!!

North Carolina definitely boasts some talented and wonderful authors. In the North Carolina YA world, we have the following who represent us VERY well:
Jenna Black, Sarah Dessen, Kelly Keaton, Megan Miranda, Stephanie Perkins, Beth Revis, and Carrie Ryan (I'm sure I'm missing names! I would love to know of other YA NC writers!)

Now, as part of this stop on the Road Trip, I would love to offer up TWO Sarah Dessen novels. There will be TWO winners - ONE book each. We all probably know that her covers have recently received a makeover and I would like to help someone start their Dessen library...either new or refreshing it!

The North Carolina giveaway will run July 9-27.

This is an International giveaway since The Book Depository does seem to have all of the new covers in stock. (What Happened to Goodbye is the only one that didn't get a new cover, I believe)

As always, all entrants must be 13 years of age or older and are able to receive shipment from The Book Depository.
All images are from The Book Depository Website.

Please fill out the Rafflecopter below. Please note that the only entry that you "must" do is the first one...the freebie! :) The others are completely optional!

Good luck!

Here is the SCHEDULE for all of the stops!


  1. Great giveaway!! I haven't read ANY Sarah Dessen yet, but I really should! Also, I should consider moving to North Carolina ... what a wealth of fantastic authors?!!? Lucky place!

    1. I went to Beth Revis's book launch for A Million Suns. Stephanie Perkins and Carrie Ryan were both there. That was such a fun night!!!

      I have yet to meet any of the other authors.

      I have, however, met Nicholas Sparks. He's from here, just not YA. Or someone I read. My mother loves him, though! hehe

  2. Didn't know Sarah Dessen was from here (My home state of north carolina)

  3. Jennifer Estep, who writes the Mythos Academy series, lives in Asheville.
