Announcing Spring 2017 YASH TEAMS!

For all of you who love finding new reads, I have just the thing for you. The YA Scavenger Hunt is coming. If you’ve never heard of it, the hunt runs twice a year in the spring and in the fall. During the hunt we showcase new and upcoming YA releases, give out tons of prizes, and release special bonus material. Sound interesting?
This spring we will have one hundred authors split into five teams of twenty. Each team is assigned a color. The blog hop begins April 4th and runs through Sunday, April 9th. It’s easy to play. All you have to do is head directly over to the YASH website. There you’ll find a list of all the authors participating as well as an answer sheet you can print off to gather the info you’re hunting for and to keep track of any bonus contests you may have entered.
Are you ready to see all the books featured this season? Here they are!


Which teams are you most excited about? Are you #TeamRed? #TeamPurple? Let me know in the comments.

Book Deal Announcement!


More Books from NYT's Bestselling Author

C.J. Redwine


Contributed by YA Books Central

Today we're excited to announce that New York Time's bestselling author C.J. Redwine will be bringing her readers two more books in her popular Ravenspire series: a series of dark epic fantasy stand alone novels inspired by fairy tales.



Here's what critics are saying about the Ravenspire series, which currently includes THE SHADOW QUEEN and THE WISH GRANTER:
“Satisfying fare for fantasy fans.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A welcome feminist revision of the classic fairy tale.” (School Library Journal)

“A gripping additon to the retelling genre.” (Marissa Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles)

“Filled with complex characters, imaginative and horrible consequences, and sharp twists (Booklist)

“An action-packed retelling of “Snow White”...Great fun” (School Library Journal)

“A fully imagined fairy tale landscape.” (Publishers Weekly)


We're excited to have more books in the series! Here's a copy of the deal announcement made today in Publisher's Lunch:

NYT bestselling author C.J. Redwine's books 3 & 4 in the Ravenspire series, the first of which centers on a determined prince who must fight in a gladiator-style competition to unseat the imposter who's taken his place and is pitched as inspired by The Prince and the Pauper; the second, scheduled for Winter 2019, draws from the Cinderella fairy tale, with a heroine who takes over her father's role as the queen's alchemist and discovers a conspiracy that requires her to save the life of the prince she despises, to Kristin Daly Rens at Balzer & Bray, in a two-book deal, for publication in Winter 2018 & Winter 2019, by Holly Root at Waxman Leavell Literary Agency (NA).

We can't wait for more fairy tale retellings in this series! If you haven't yet read THE SHADOW QUEEN or THE WISH GRANTER, you can find more info and links to buy here: https://cjredwine.blogspot.com/p/books.html
