YA Bachelor Master Post

YA Bachelors Month- July 2011

What is it?: Simply put, it's a month devoted to the guys we love and why we love them!

When it is?: July 2011. A full schedule will be posted as more details come in.

How does it work: After several rounds of voting, we've narrowed the guys down to the Top 20 Bachelors of YA. Now it's time to vote on several different categories and an overall favorite. All during the month of July, there will be people "hosting" (writing up guest posts) on the Top 20, as well as giveaways, author interviews, challenges and guest posts on other subjects. At the end of the month, the polls will open up and it will be your chance to vote for your favorites in all categories. Not only do you get to root for your favorite guys but you'll also get a chance to win some awesome prizes!

Well, who are these guys then?: (I'm glad you asked)

      Thought Daniel, Ky & Edward would go really fast.

      Looking forward to this. :D x

    3. The BookNerds blog would like to write about Edward.

    4. I think I could do a button... I'm not too busy now... I've got vauge ideas...
      Can't wait for the main event!
      Nina @ Death Books and Tea

    5. I think we'll do FOUR for our blog! :-D

      We're going to pair him with another heroine that we think is also worthy of his affections...and we'll give away another book that she is in. What do you think?


    6. Dimitri from Vampire Academy.

    7. OMG! I just found this, and I am sooooo darn excited!!! Awesome idea. I have major book crushes on a lot of these boys ;) *wags brows*


    Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

    This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
