Welcome to the 2018 YA Scavenger Hunt! This bi-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 book from each author on the hunt in my team!
Go to the YA Scavenger Hunt page to find out all about the hunt. There are SIX contests going on simultaneously, and you can enter one or all! I am a part of the BLUE TEAM — but there is also a BLUE, GREEN, GOLD, PINK, & PURPLE team for a chance to win a whole different set of 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 page.
SCAVENGER HUNT PUZZLE
Directions: 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!). If you’re wondering what mine is, I’m a big fan of my birthday, March 17.
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 April 8th, at noon Pacific Time. Entries sent without the correct number or without contact information will not be considered.
SCAVENGER HUNT POST
Today, I am super excited to be hosting the fabulously talented Melissa Chambers
on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! (I love a good bucket list and have already marked both of her books to read).
Find out more information by checking out the author website or find more about the author’s books (links below)!
The Before Forever series is all about the music. In The Summer Before Forever, Landon has steered clear from most music after a well-meaning therapist pretty much ruined it for him, opting instead for sports talk radio. But Chloe can’t live without alt rock. Her earbuds are her sanctuary, and now she gets to introduce the guy she’s falling for to all her favorites? It’s on!
In Falling for Forever, Jenna and Miles go to Nashville’s Academy of Creative Arts and are battling to win their talent competition while being forced together as partners in their songwriting class. Miles is all about electronic, while Jenna is a pop princess. If they are ever going to get ahead in songwriting class, they’ve got to find middle ground!
Here is a playlist that weaves some of these characters favorite tunes together. A few of these songs represent some of the most intimate and significant moments in these books. Some may be head scratchers but will fall perfectly in place once you’ve read the books!
