Anniversary Tour: #Giveaway 10 Years Poison Study by Maria V Snyder ~ Scavenger Hunt #Win

Image
I am so excited for the Poison Study Anniversary Tour and read along. I love Maria's writing and love this book. I own every version of this book signed and I am still trying to beg for the new covers in print since they are stunning. 

Just reading the excerpt I received for the tour made me want to dive back in to Poison Study all over again. Yelena is such a smart and fierce lead character. I love fantasy and I love reading about women who can inspire. This is such a magical world and I am so happy we are celebrating it 10 years later. 

Please read and find the word in bold red for the scavenger hunt.

Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Reads if you loved The Hunger Games

Thank you The Broke and the Bookishfor organizing the fun Top Ten Tuesday and for the meme!



September 29th Topic ~ Top 10 Reads if you loved The Hunger Games!
I loved experiencing The Hunger Games and it kicked off a wave of Dystopian craze in the YA industry. I am going to bring to you today the 10 Dystopian's I thought stood out enough to be in the same category as The Hunger Games.






1. The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau -  What I loved about this series was the consistency throughout. Every book had a great story and an edge that set it apart.




2.Legend by Marie Lu -  This series was heart breaking and raw. I devoured the realistic qualities and fierce nature to survive that Marie captured in this entire series.

Goodreads Description:
Steve just wants to save his baby brother—but what will he lose in the bargain? This is a haunting gothic tale for fans of Coraline, from acclaimed author Kenneth Oppel (Silverwing, The Boundless) with illustrations from Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen.

For some kids summer is a sun-soaked season of fun. But for Steve, it’s just another season of worries. Worries about his sick newborn baby brother who is fighting to survive, worries about his parents who are struggling to cope, even worries about the wasp’s nest looming ominously from the eaves. So when a mysterious wasp queen invades his dreams, offering to “fix” the baby, Steve thinks his prayers have been answered.

All he has to do is …
