A simply DIVINE time!

Have I recently mentioned my love of THE DIVINERS by Libba Bray? If not, you can read about my fondness for it in my review, or read about Ashley’s enjoyment of it here in her review.

Earlier today, I received an email from my boss telling me all about a contest in which libraries can win a prize pack to host a DIVINERS party during Teen Read Week (which is October 14-20). Needless to say, I entered and then passed it on to Ashley so she can enter, too. (Speaking of Ashley, if anyone else has noticed her absence, she unfortunately was suffering from death-like symptoms last week. But she’s better now.)

However, even though it’s just for libraries to enter (sorry everyone!), they also sent lots of cool tidbits along with the invite. Including a book trailer for THE DIVINERS, radio episodes, and a DIVINERS playlist. If you’d like to have a “divine” party at your library, ask your librarian to check out THE DIVINERS Teen Read Week Sweepstakes on THE DIVINERS Facebook page!

Isn’t that the most pos-i-tute-ly amazing book trailer?
