Meet my guest author, Ryan Dalton!
Today, I am hosting Ryan Dalton on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt!
Ryan Dalton is author of the young adult Time Shift Trilogy, a series of time travel mysteries. Ryan splits his time between writing books during the day, fighting crime at night, and hanging out in his awesome underground lair. Please do not tell anyone he’s Batman. It’s a secret.
Here’s some exclusive content for his book, The Year of Lightning.

When 15-year-old twins Malcolm and Valentine Gilbert moved to a new town, they never imagined that the old house across the street could bring them so much trouble. A secret machine has reawakened inside, with the power to pierce time itself.

Meanwhile, lightning storms are breaking out all over town. They’re getting worse every week, and seem to enjoy striking kids who just want to pass science class and mind their own business. When Malcolm and Valentine discover a connection between the house and the storms, their situation goes from mysterious to crazy stupid dangerous. Someone is controlling the great machine, and their purpose is nearly complete.

In a race against time, the twins must uncover the chilling plan, the mastermind behind it, and the force that’s driving the deadly storms. They’ll hunt a powerful enemy that threatens their town’s existence, and the only clues are written in the sky.

You can go purchase the book HERE!
And don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a ton of books by me, hosted author’s name, and more! To enter, you need to know that my favorite number is 7. Add up all the favorite numbers of the authors on the blue team and you’ll have all the secret code to enter for the grand prize!
Before you leave my page, make sure to enter in my giveaway for a YA book off of your wish list!
To keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next author. Tobie Easton!

  15. Maud G

    There are a lot of books that I can’t wait for but if I had to pick one it would have to be the final Throne of Glass book by Sarah J. Maas!

  16. There are so many books I can’t wait to read! I want the final book in the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas now, but it’s not out until October. I also really want to read Dread Nation by Justina Ireland which just came out!

  17. Bella

    Just one? Cause now I have several new ones from this YASH! But. Now A Major Motion Picture by Cori McCarthy is a random one (off my huge list.) But but but Invisible Ghosts by Robyn S also sounds fantastic. But so does Spin The Sky by Jill MacKenzie. But then, so does Don’t Forget Me by Judy Corry and Everywhere You Want To Be by Christina June (That ones been on my wish list forever!!!) #howcanyoupickjustone

  18. Penny Olson

    I really want to read the whole Gemina, Obsidio series. Thanks for participating.

  20. Emma McAndrew

    Dare Mighty Things! I see it every time I go to my local bookstore, and it is so gorgeous!

    Tempests and Slaughter by Tamora Pierce. It’s in my to read pile, and I can’t wait to get to it.

  22. Ashley

    Omg there are honestly so many books I am waiting to read! Although… I do need to go and buy the second Trials of Apollo book by Rick Riordan. Never too old for the world of Percy Jackson!

  23. Honestly looking forward to reading nearly everything here on this YASH! If I had to choose one I’d choose Stacey Kade’s newest book: Finding Felicity!

  24. iluvoils

    I would really love to read Caraval, I have not yet but it looks like a great fantasy!

  25. Shannon Fay

    i honestly can’t pick just one. I end up buying every book i want, but there are some really indie books that i can’t find in stores that are hard for me to get ahold of that i’m dying for. I’d love to get my hands on one of those indie books, lol

  26. Bella

    I’m just adding this because I forgot to to my comment 3 up. To Me No Lies by AV Gieger is another one I’m going crazy waiting for. I couldn’t BELIEVE the ending to Follow Me Back (which was an amazing book). It went from “okay this is cute and sweet and my anxiety is okay” to a horror movie in 3 seconds (pages) flat. I was like :O <<< Actual picture.

  27. Laura

    I can’t wait to read “Broken Forest” as I was just introduced to you through this scavenger hunt and the book sounds amazing.

  28. Lesly

    Thanks for the giveaway! I don’t want to feel like a copycat but I can’t wait to read Obsidio too! I took it out from the library (along with 50 other books) and I haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet and I have to return it!

  29. Sara Willden

    I can’t pick just one… my TBR pile is full of amazing YA books… Now I just need to find the time to read them all
