How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest (my April listens)

I'm participating in Sara McClung's great May blogfest with different prompts every day.

 Thursdays are: May I tell you something about someone else?

Well, today I'm going to tell you about someone else's books...many books...all my great YA listens last month.

I'll also be giving away someone else's books/ARCs...again, many of them. 

You can enter to win any or all of them, but let me know which of my April listens you've read/heard and you can have extra entries.

The books/ARCs (Goodreads links included) are:

Annexed- Sharon Dogar
The Gray Wolf Throne (Seven Realms #3)- Cinda Williams Chima
Ten Things We Did (and probably shouldn't have)- Sarah Mlyowski 
Guardian of the Gate (Prophecy of the Sisters, book II)- Michelle Zink
The Forgotten Locket (finale of Hourglass Door trilogy) Lisa Mangum
In Darkness- Nick Lake 

My April listens:

One major screwup, including the killing of a lawn gnome, lands Alex in community service at an old folk's home. What he learns there will transform more than just his life.

Sequel to Carter Finally Gets It, this book should be called (IMO) Carter Really Gets It This Time.

Another sequel (to Rot and Ruin). A dangerous zombie world where the zombies aren't your worst enemy...not even close.

I already blogged about this one HERE.

It's Anne Frank's story from Peter's point of view.

Just mild-mannered teenagers, living a double life.

This is my surprise favorite of the month...I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did.

Oh wait, this one was a surprise favorite too...for different reasons.

I blogged about it HERE.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone author, Laini Taylor, wrote this.

Three supernatural stories, all revolving around a single kiss.

A Canadian set thriller about two street kids trying to find their way out of/into trouble.

I blogged more about this one HERE.

A virus is killing off a community and may be spreading farther.

If you liked the Life as We Knew It series, you should like this one too. The tone felt similar to me.

A historical Veronica Mars, set in NYC during World War II.

Loved it, especially all the enjoyable.

What about you? Read any of these? Want to?

Let me know which books/ARCs you want to win and how many of my April listens you've read/heard (for extra entries).
