Partials Read-a-Long Challenge and Giveaway!

Welcome to the Partials Read-a-long Challenge 
and Giveaway! 

First, I have to apologize for not posting last week.
I needed to step back for the last week or so and regroup, and because of this, I am behind in posting and such... so without further ado! Here is this week's discussion :)

There is still over a week left of the read-a-long and we will have our "closing arguments" next week!
For this week, we have a challenge for you!

In the world of YA there seems to be an abundance of females, 
but Dan Wells is among the few males present in this genre. 

"Which other male authors would you highly recommend???"

Please leave your recommendations below in the comments
and you will be entered to win an eBook of The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa! 
*Remember, you must be participating in the read-a-long in order to qualify for the prize.

Thank you so much! and good luck :)


  1. Some YA genre male authors that rock are John Green, Andrew Fukuda and James Dashner. My all time favorite author is a Terry Pratchett-he writes satirical fantasy. Not YA but his Discworld series is YA appropriate and within the series there is a sub-series that is focused towards YA :)

  2. Michael Grant. I love his novel Gone and plan to read the entire series.

  3. Christopher Paolini & David Levithan are awesome!

  4. Michael Grant and James Dashner, definitely.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment today!
