Hello, dear darling roses of mine! It's time for yet another giveaway hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer! This one is co-hosted by The Non Reluctant Reader!

This one is set to feature debut YA authors of 2012!

There are so many awesome debuts I've read this year, and so many more awesome ones sure to come out later this year! But I am going to feature my favorite debut of this year!

My favorite debut from this year by far is Illuminate by Aimee Agresti. I loved that book almost ridiculously much and I think everyone should read it! Of course, I realize that not everyone is going to love it like I did, but I think it is definitely worth a shot!

So that is what you can win for my stop in this awesome giveaway hop. I'm thinking I'll do something a bit unique: for every fifty people that enter, I will have one winner! So the more people who enter, the better chance you have! So share, share, share!!
All I ask is that you read my Giveaways page before entering. Please, darlings, please, it's not a lot to ask. I actually ended up in tears last week because I was so frustrated and upset that people can't seem to do this one little thing for me. And we don't want that, my loves, now do we?

So enter here, my sweet red roses!

Good luck, darlings! Don't forget to share this giveaway to increase your chances of winning!


Oh, and while you're here, do be sure to check out the other awesome giveaways in this hop!
