Harlequin Teen 5 Pack Giveaway

Katie McGarry


I emailed Harlequin and asked if they would be willing to do a giveaway for Katie McGarry’s book “Dare You To” because I enjoyed it so much. They said yes and offered up this great prize package:

  • 2 copies DARE YOU TO  (one to give to a friend)
  • 1 copy of THE IMMORTAL RULES by Julie Kagawa
  • 1 copy of THE GODDESS TEST by Aimee Carter

I loved the idea of getting two books of “Dare You To” so that a reader could gift a friend with it.  These are paper books that will look great on your bookshelf. Use the rafflecopter widget to enter by liking us on Facebook or leaving a blog comment about a funny and/or scary dare.

    Tanks for the contest. I’m really liking he’s teen line. Hmm a funny or scary dare? Here in Idaho we do a lot of drag racing, my husband is glad I’ve grown out of it.

    Funny or crazy dare..hmmmm….when I was five I dared my three year old sister to eat a mothball. I told her it was candy. I knew very well it wasn’t candy. Mom had said to never ever eat them. Far from scaring me, it made me intensely curious as to what would happen if someone (not me!) were to eat one. So I dared my sister and she ate one. Mom found out in time. Ipecac was administered, sis was fine and my bottom was sore for hours after receiving a well-deserved spanking.

    Oh dear. All the dares I can think of or remember involve nudity…perhaps I’ll leave them to the imagination.

    Thank you! I read “Pushing the Limits” and thought it was a great book. I have heard good things about these other authors, too.

    As a secondary teacher, I see way too much teen romance all day long so I’ve shied away from teen and new adult genres. Maybe this series will change my mind.

    I can’t wait to read Dare You To! I decided to listen to the audiobook of Pushing the Limits after reading great reviews but after downloading I kept putting off listening to it thinking I wouldn’t like it as much as the reviews indicated. I loved it!

  16. Nancy
    May 27, 2013 @ 12:29:20

    I too like the idea of giving a second copy to pass along to a friend. What a great giveaway! I’ve been meaning to read Pushing the Limits since I’ve heard so many great things.

    May 27, 2013 @ 13:12:05

    That is a wonderful idea to gift the second copy!

    As far as dares, I was always pretty shy so nothing crazy here… probably eating some weird food.

    I loved Pushing The Limits. Despite the popularity of the book in the blogosphere I was not expecting to like it. I put a hold on Dare You To at my library as soon as I was done with the first book. I was a little leery of Isaiah not being the hero of the book. But after reading your review I feel better about it.

    I had a very mundane childhood. No funny or crazy dares unfortunately :)

    Truth or dare was ruined for me when, as an impressionable youth, I witnessed my mother mooning a train.

    Hmmm, the only dare I can remember being around is when my 7 year old cousin dared her friend to sniff the red pepper flakes at the pizza place. One got stuck up her nose and burned for a full day before it came out. My cousin’s mother who’s a nurse basically tried everything she could think of to get this thing out including irrigating it many times. Alas, nothing worked. Everyone, including said friend, thought it pretty funny though.

    I loved Dare You To, too! But I would love to get a print copy of it and Pushing the Limits. And I could finally start the Immortal Rules series as I’ve heard it’s quite great.

    I have an older brother. Yeah, there were dares. And they were all one sided.

    The only one I remember was drinking Tabasco sauce. A lot of it. I still don’t like the stuff.
