Valentine's Day is for (Book) Lovers

February 14th is rolling around again -- and the only thing that smells better than roses (and goes better with chocolate) is a new book.

Can you guess what book this is?

And hat tip to Stephanie Elliott, author of the upcoming YA novel SAD PERFECT (FSG, 2017), for finding these AWESOME VALENTINE BOOKGRAMS at Booksparks. For just $10 you can send a book to your Galentine in cute packaging--and a book will be donated in your name to Reach Out and Read. Order yours here:

Valentine's Day really is a day to celebrate books.

After all, the best romances all started there, anyway.
