Happy Blogiversary :-) I hope I'm still blogging in 4 years!!

My pick on Amazon is Evernight by Claudia Gray, and I chose that because I've read so many good reviews on many blogs (and I love books about the supernatural!) that I've been wanting to read this for awhile now.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi Amy...Happy Blogiversary! I follow your blog quite regularly and enjoy reading a lot!

One book I've picked up solely based on a review at ramya's bookshelf blog was "Purple Hibiscus'. The review was so interesting that I couldn't resist reading the book...

I'd love to read Kitty and the Midnight Hour (Kitty Norville, Book 1) because I'm seeing so many good reviews of it. Sounds like the series is made for me. I think this part of Amazon Prime, but I'm not sure. If not, just take me out of the giveaway.

Happy Blogiversary and thanks for your generosity.

Oooh, happy blogiversary! I'm going to have to go with Kiss Me, Kill Me by Lauren Henderson!

Deborah said...

When i said happy blogiversary yesterday, i inadvertently put a question mark at the end by mistake. but ditto again!

I would like to win Viva Vermont by Melody Carlson b/c it's the only book out of the series so far that I don't own/read yet.

Erika Lynn said...

Happy Blogiversary! I really want to read Evermore by Alyson Noel because I have read so many great things about it and I love Noel.

Sorry if this posts twice - but I think the first comment was lost.

Happy Blogiversary!!

I would love to win The Inn at Eagle Point by Sherryl Woods. This is the first book in her newest series - she is one of my favorite authors.

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

Happy Blogiversary! I'd love to be entered for The Dust of 100 Dogs by AS King. Lenore's posts have convinced me I need to read this!

Nymeth said...

I read Looking for Alaska by John Green because of Dewey's review. I somehow had never heard of John Green before, but he quickly became one of those authors that seem to have been part of my life all along. Don't you love it when that happens?

I'm in Portugal and my e-mail is untuneric at gmail dot com. Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

Heather J. said...

Amy - I'd love to get HOOD by Stephen Lawhead. It is book 1 of the King Raven Trilogy (the other books are SCARLET and TUCK) which reimagines the story of Robin Hood. I've heard excellent things about it. AND the series is now complete so I can allow myself to read it. (I refuse to read a series unless is is complete - I've been burned too many times!).

This is a great idea for a contest - thanks.

Cheri2628 said...

I would like The Lady Flees Her Lord by Michele Ann Young. I love historical romances, and I believe that you recommended this book on your site.

Amee said...

I would choose Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols because I have heard several opinions that say it's a must read!

Suburban Stepmom said...

Happy Blogiversary! Well, My Daughter could use a new book to read. I'm so glad she has fallen in love with reading as I have. She would love The babysitters club the truth about Stacy. The book is about a young girl with Diabetes and how she is treated by others.

Lindsey said...

I really want to read Wind Dancer by Jamie Carie - It seems like every review I've read has been FIVE STARS! FIVE STARS! FIVE STARS! So I feel like I'm missing out on an amazing book!

Thanks, Amy! :-)

Jodi said...

Twilight by Stephanie Mayer would be a good book to read I think. I just have seen the film and I think reading the book would really bring even more to the film.

Shauna said...

I really want to read Claudia Mair Burney's newest Amanda Bell Brown mystery--Deadly Charm! I love the blend of humor, drama, mystery, and romance in this series.

Iliana said...

Wishing you a wonderful bloggiversary! I think you need to treat yourself to some books :)

ibeeeg said...

Happy Blogiversary!!

I would love to choose Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead but that one is a smidge over $10. I will, however, read this one in April (on my list of plans). Hood was a great book.


My $10 and under choice is
Terrier (The Legend of Beka Cooper, Book 1)by Tamora Pierce.

I have heard good things about her books... I am curious.

I agree with Iliana...Hope you are treating yourself to some books. :)

What a great giveaway!

I'm a Canadian, and Nymeth's review of THE VAMPYRE by Tom Holland sent me straight to the library in search of a copy. It was very good, too. :)

Happy Blogiversary! :0)

My first pick would be Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews but it doesn't come out until March 31st. Wasn't sure if it would be eligible for this contest.

So my second choice would be Nightlife by Rob Thurman. I keep hearing how good this series is so I want to see what all the fuss is about. :0)

Happy Blogiversary Amy!

One book that I read was due to several bloggers not just one. However, it was one in particular that made me re-look at my view on the author.

I had read many reviews of My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picult. I wrote her of as chick lit or best seller fluff. However, when a read a glowing review that a guy wrote, I knew I must be wrong about the chick lit. This guy does not read chick lit! I read and really liked the book. I even hope to read more by her.

I live in Canada.

I blogged about your giveaway here:

Happy Blogiversary!

I would love to read Play It Again SAHM by Meredith Efken.

I've read the first two books in the series: SAHM I Am and @ Home for the Holidays. I really enjoyed both. It's a lot of fun for anyone who belongs to any online community. Plus, there's a lot of faith sprinkled in, which I think is a big bonus! :-)

Tif said...

What a great idea for a giveaway!! I even loved reading everyone else's picks!!

Anyways, I saw a review over at J. Kaye's Book Blog for book 6 in The Sisters Grimm series. I just finished reading John Connolly's book, The Book of Lost Things, and thought this would be an interesting read to follow! Because I have not read any of the series though, my pick would be The Sisters Grimm Book One: The Fairy Tale Detectives! Thanks!!

Tarasview said...

wow... I've read dozens of books after reading reviews... the latest one was "The Passion of Mary Margaret".

I'm in Canada :)
