Canada Day Blog Hop!


This Sunday is going to be Canada Day, and to celebrate Canada's 145th birthday (yeah, we're a pretty young country) I decided to participate in the Canada Day Blog Hop hosted by Snowdrop Dreams of Books, Rabid Reads and Stitch Read Cook.

To celebrate, I will be giving away books written by Canadian YA authors. It's only fitting since this is to celebrate Canada Day after all. So, 2 winners will each win one book of their choice written by Canadian YA authors. If you're not sure which YA authors out there are actually Canadian, you can find a list below of the ones I know off the top of my head.

- Kelley Armstrong
- Lesley Livingston
- Courtney Summers
- Denise Jaden
- Jeyn Roberts
- Charles de Lint
- Carrie Mac
- Allison Van Diepen

To enter the giveaway, just fill out the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck to everyone!
