2WTNW – The YA Rebels Giveaway



Did you see how that 3 became a 2?? That’s means we’re at the TWO WEEK MARK. I can’t handle that. Next giveaway will be the ONE WEEK MARK, and that will mean single digits and lots of things I can’t think about so let’s FOCUS ON THIS ONE.

It’s Monday. In case you’re just joining us, Mondays around here (leading up to THE NEAR WITCH) mean GIVEAWAYS. Because giveaways make Monday suck less.*

This week’s giveaway is both grand and bittersweet. This giveaway is the biggest yet, but it’s also a goodbye. Because this giveaway is also my farewell to the YA Rebels. I’ve had so much fun being a part, and it was a really hard decision to leave, but a SANE V is a HAPPY V and a HAPPY V is better at giving things away.


POSSESS by Gretchen McNeill (ARC with swag)
INVINCIBLE SUMMER by Hannah Moskowitz (finished book with swag)
THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab (pre-order of finished book with swag)
A TOUCH MORTAL by Leah Clifford (finished book with swag)
WITCH EYES by Scott Tracey (finished book, sent by publisher as soon as available, with swag)
WILDEFIRE by Karsten Knight (ARC with swag)

    Always up for participating in the Victoria Schwab Monday Suck-Busting Giveaway! Tweeted, blogged, commented, and fbooked. Didn’t hug anyone though. Random hugging is frowned upon by the software developers I work with.

  20. leanne-luce says:

    Fantastic contest as always – you have the best ideas!!

  21. Sierra says:

    Yay! Thanks so much for the chance! I love participating in your giveaways. 🙂 I definitely hugged my cousin, who is sitting right next to me. And I told someone that they needed to read The Near Witch when it comes out. 😀

  22. Yolande says:

    All of these tweets and contests are making me want to read The Near Witch even more – yay for social media! 🙂

  26. I can’t wait to read the #THENEARWITCH in 2 weeks! Congrats Victoria!

  27. meggoz says:

    What an AWESOME contest!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. Cat says:

    Is it sad that I love filling out forms? In fact everyone at work gives me forms to fill out for them because it makes me stupid happy. I am a special creature.

    I hug my husband EVERY SINGLE DAY so that hugging someone thing is totally true. I am sappy like that. I also hold his hand everywhere we walk.

    And here I am commenting to make the comment thing true!

    And yesterday I watched the narwhal video AND commented on it. Again, you + patronus = NARWHAL.

    I have sadly not pre-ordered due to the lack of space on that little plastic rectangle that hides in my wallet. But I am hoping that my crappy stores in the area will be getting the book in stock. Alas, I fear they won’t as I have a heck of a hard time trying to get ANY debut books from them. Grr and Argh!

  29. Eep! you’re giveaways are SO awesome, Victoria.
    The time sure is winding down! The Near Witch will be on shelves very very soon! 😀

  30. Dazzlamb says:

    Ha, I love your contest entry forms. They always make me smile:) A good to start the new week!

  31. I can’t believe it’s a two either! My excitement hath now reached epic proportions. You are far too generous. Thanks for the amazing giveaway, and your presence will be missed on YA Rebels!

  32. Safari Poet says:

    WOW, thanks for the chance 🙂

  33. Greta at PW says:

    Great contest!!

  34. Kristine says:

    Ahhhhh! Two weeks! If Peter Pettigrew were alive, he’d be able to count the weeks with half his fingers on one hand! (That one… was not my best work.)

    *hugs desk* *hugs water bottle on desk* *hugs everyone in the world*

  35. Laura Wood says:

    I love how cookies are really going to be a prize! 😀

  36. yay for making monday suckless!

  37. Travis says:

    Yay contest! I need to get around to reading my copy of TNW soon…

  38. Cicely says:

    NOOO YOU’RE LEAVING THE REBELS D’: BUT YAYYYY AWESOMELY AMAZING GIVEAWAY 😀 Thanks for the great giveaways! Can not WAIT for The Near Witch! 😀

  39. Brielle says:

    I keep trying to write something witty or clever here, but the only thing that’s running through my mind is, “WANTWANTWANT.”


  40. Annika says:

    I checked the pre-order button, which was a LIE! I forgot that there’s no Kindle pre-order. I *would* preorder it if there was.

  41. Tasnim Sheikh says:

    This is an amazing contest! I was so gutted when i didn;t win the last contest so i hope i have more luck with this one 🙂

    My avatar has been changed to TNW cover since the last contest – @star_light91 i promised you I’d keep it as that until the release of TNW!! 🙂

    I retweeted Gretchen Mcneil’s tweet about the contest – https://twitter.com/#!/GretchenMcNeil/status/92989890555424768
