YA Scavenger Hunt

Welcome to YA Scavenger Hunt! This tri-annual event was first organized by author Colleen Houck as a way to give readers a chance to gain access to exclusive bonus material from their favorite authors...and a chance to win some awesome prizes! At this hunt, you not only get access to exclusive content from each author, you also get a clue for the hunt. Add up the clues, and you can enter for our prize--one lucky winner will receive one signed book from each author on the hunt in my team! But play fast: this contest (and all the exclusive bonus material) will only be online for 72 hours.

Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are TWO contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM--but there is also a red team for a chance to win a whole different set of twenty-five signed books!

If you'd like to find out more about the hunt, see links to all the authors participating, and see the full list of prizes up for grabs, go to the YA Scavenger Hunt homepage.

Directions: Below, you'll notice that I've listed my favorite number. Collect the favorite numbers of all the authors on the blue team, and then add them up (don't worry, you can use a calculator!).

Entry Form: Once you've added up all the numbers, make sure you fill out the form here to officially qualify for the grand prize. Only entries that have the correct number will qualify.

Rules: Open internationally, anyone below the age of 18 should have a parent or guardian's permission to enter. To be eligible for the grand prize, you must submit the completed entry form by August 5, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.


I am hosting the fabulous Amy Plum for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Amy Plum is the author of the DIE FOR ME series, a YA trilogy set in Paris. Amy grew up in Birmingham, Alabama before venturing further afield to Chicago, Paris, London and New York. An art historian by training, she can be found on most days either daydreaming or writing (or both) in a Parisian cafĂ©.

Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about the author's book here!

About Until I Die:
Kate has chosen to leave the comfort and safety of her human world in order to join Vincent in the dangerous supernatural universe he inhabits. For his part, he has sworn to go against his very nature and resist the repeated deaths that are his fate as a revenant—even though it will bring him immeasurable suffering. Heady with romance and rife with danger, the second book of the DIE FOR ME trilogy follows Vincent and Kate as they search—separately—for a solution to their plight, pursuing their quest from the glamorous streets of Paris to the city’s squalid underbelly.

It sounds amazing! I love the lush romance and drama of this series.

And don't forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of signed books by me, Amy Plum, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 87. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you'll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!

  1. I loved that passage from Jule's POV. I almost cried.. ):

  2. Thanks for participating in the hunt and for offering a copy of Glitch. I loved participating; it's always a blast!

    The Book Hookup: Eat. Breathe. Read!

  3. Hi! I've heard great things about Amy Plum's series, I unfortunately have not read it yet, but it's definitely on my to be read list! (:

  4. Whew Amy, that was some steamy bonus material. Loved it!

  5. Thanks for stopping by, everyone. I know, isn't that passage from Jule's POV just electrifying!

  6. I picked up on Jules' feelings in Die for Me. I tweeted Amy and asked her if my woman's intuition was correct and she tweeted back a winking smiley face and a we'll see. In a weird way I like Jules as much as Vincent and wouldn't mind it if Kate found out about Jules' secret.

  7. Wow this is why I have fallen so hard for the Die for Me books. The characters are so full of life, passion and feeling. Jules's POV is so heartfelt and also so sad. I now appreciate Jules so much more. One of my favourite chapters in Die for Me is when Jules sketches Kate in the Cafe Sainte-Lucie. That chapter is now so much more poignant. I love both Vincent and Jules equally and I would hate anything to come between them. I hope there is a way that both Jules and Vincent can be happy, they both deserve it.

  8. Thanks for participating in the YA Scavenger hunt!!!!!

  9. Awesome! Thank you for everything. :)


  10. Oh I loved reading that little excerpt from Jules' pov. Thanks for doing the giveaway.
