Giveaway: 400 Followers!

I am feeling so very fortunate right now. This is a time of year where I am often very reflective and want to thank those who have made a positive contribution to my life. Usually, I do this with gifts. I can think of no better way to thank my followers, readers, contributors to this blog than to give the gift of books.

Rather than give out books that I read and loved this year, I am going to give away the ones that got away. Yup. There were a bunch of great books (I hear that they're great anyway) that I've seen reviewed on all sorts of blogs and have wanted to read, but have never gotten around to buying and reading. So, I'm going to give them to you!

Because this giveaway is meant to celebrate my 400 followers, I am going to give away 4 books.
Here are your options:













All you need to do to enter this contest is to:

-Make sure you're a follower of this blog-
-Leave a comment telling me about a book that I should have read in 2010-
-Fill out the form below-

  4. I choose Anna and the French Kiss because it sounds cute and I've heard that its amazing! Also I've been reading so many paranormal books lately I feel like reading something different.

  5. Awesome idea for a contest! I read a middle grade fantasy called The Magical Misadventures of Prunella Bogthistle. It was definitely the most fun I had reading all year.

  9. thanks so much - you are always generous.

    you run on awesome blog - congrats on all your followers!

    So many books I could recommend... but I think you'd really like Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. It;s lyrical and different and despite the anorexia theme, is not a bleak book at all. Also, I think your students would love it :)

  10. Awesome giveaway! Hmm... I recommend Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare if you haven't read it. I'm reading it now, and really enjoying it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't know if you've read it, but Prophecy of Days by Christie Raedeke was one of the best books I've read this year. So if you haven't read it, you should definitely give it a try when you get a chance. ^_^
    Thanks for the great contest and congrats on 400 followers.

    ReplyDelete
  12. It looks like you have read all the YA books I was going to recommend! So, it's not a YA book but Juliet by Anne Fortier was amazing!

    Congratulations on 400 followers!

    ReplyDelete
  13. holy smokes, you've read a ton of books in 2010 :p i'll recommend Some Girls Are by Courntey Summers, although it was published in 2009... since you've already read all the awesome stuff :p
    thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congrats on 400 followers! Great giveaway!

    I agree with Orchid. Prophecy of Days is one of the best books I've read, and had some of my favorite characters.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great giveaway! You should have read "Danann Frost Falls From Grace" by Joanne Valiukas

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

    You read so many books! I don't know what to recommend since you've probably read it already... :P

    Umm, I really liked Plain Kate by Erin Bow, Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, Everlasting by Angie Frazier?

    ReplyDelete

  20. +JMJ+

    My favourite reads of 2010 were not necessarily 2010 releases.

    The best reread was Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The best new read was Po-on (also titled Dusk) by F. Sionil Jose. I could talk all day about the first book and have recommended the second to many others.

  21. tks for the int giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for a chance to win. I have been drooling over Anna and the French Kiss forever. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  23. If you haven't read "Revolution" by Jennifer Donnelly so far you should definitely get to it! This book really impressed me and the writing is just awesome - as are the characters :D

    Greetings from Austria,
    Stefanie

  24. was going to suggest Before I Fall, but you've read it (you've read a lot!)
    How about the Mysterious Benedict Society? It's a lot of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It wasn't published in 2010, but...Graceling! You must read Graceling!! So good!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampires Series...they're all awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Have you read If I Stay by Gayle Forman?

    Congrats on all the followers! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nightshade was pretty good, and I have Immortal Beloved, and have heard good things. Anna and the French Kiss came out of nowhere (to me): I had never heard of it, and then it was like everyone was talking about it. Might have to read it one day just to see what all the fuss is about. Paranormalcy, however, tops my list of to-read. Haven't heard 1 bad thing yet, and what a cover.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    I always have so many books I think people should have read. I guess, for books published this year (get ready for a list, not sure which you've read):

    The Replacement
    Plain Kate
    The House of Dead Maids
    A Little Wanting Song
    Before I Fall
    The Unidentified

    For books not published this year, but that I read this year:

    The Morganville Vampires series (read the first 2 and am LOVING it)
    Protector of the Small series
    How I Live Now
    Magic Under Glass (for the most part)
    Boneshaker
    Sorcery and Cecelia

  29. Congratulatioan for your 400 follower. I am the #416

    Thanks for this chance

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've recently enjoyed Afterlight by Elle Jasper (adult) and Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton (YA).

    ReplyDelete
  36. If you haven't read My Soul to Keep yet, or any of the Soul Screamers books by Rachel Vincent you definitely should!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I entered a few days ago but my comment mustn't published, so I'll post again!

    Having just recently finished (and LOVED) Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead, you definitely should have read the Vampire Academy series this year if you haven't already. Also one of my fav reads this year was Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.

    Congrats on your followers!!! And thanks for the awesome giveaway :)

But I really liked Georgina Kincaid series (5 books so far and anxiously waiting for 6th and last)by Richelle Mead and Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr!
