Introducing the End Is Here NEWBIES!

11/30/2012 10:02PM | Posted by: TeamEpicReads | Series Recaps


Earlier this week we posted an application on the blog for our End is Here campaign. While the details of said campaign are still a few weeks away from being revealed, we needed to recruit a few members of our community who are newbies to some of our series that are ending this winter. Why? Well, we wanted a few readers to chronicle their journey through the series and help recruit other newbies to become series converts! While they will be blogging with us, everyone (THAT MEANS YOU!!) will be invited to join in the fun. Stay tuned for more announcements in a few weeks!

The application closed last night and today Team Epic Reads sifted through over 400 entries!

We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone for submitting, seriously, your applications were hilarious, silly, heartwarming and honest and we really appreciate you guys taking the time to fill them out. Narrowing it down to 14 people was basically like bookish torture.

If you weren’t selected for this round, don’t be too heart broken! We plan on doing something similar to this throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled for more fun opportunities like this in the future!

Now it’s time to introduce you to the members who were chosen for this program and what series they will be binging over the holidays:

. . . drum roll, please . . .

DELIRIUM series by Lauren Oliver
The Bumble Girl


GONE series by Michael Grant


A TOUCH series by Leah Clifford


FULL MOON series by Ellen Schreiber
Courtney Ostrom


EVE series by Anna Carey


ANGELFIRE series by Courtney Allison Moulton


UNEARTHLY series by Cynthia Hand


Congrats to all of our Newbies! You’ll be getting an email from us next week detailing next steps. And once again, thank you everyone for filling out the applications, we seriously have the bestest group of YA lovers in the world.
