Giveaway time! *CLOSED*

I decided that since I have been getting more and more people visiting my blog it would be fun to do a giveaway! Some of these people may be coming from my guest review on Carol's blog, carol-in-print. I would also like to say WELCOME NEWCOMERS! :)

I have checked my Goodreads account and saw that so far this year I have read 24 books. Which is pretty awesome! And lately I have been reading a book a day. But now.. I can't find anything to read. So I thought it would be cool if I did a giveaway but also made a way to get book recommendations!

If you win you will get to choose a book from the list of some of my favorite books. But don't worry, there are a lot!

Since you may not be able to read all of them(also some I either can't find or borrowed) the titles are: Love, INC., The Year I Turned Sixteen, Audrey Wait!, The Liar Society, Paranormalcy, The Mermaid's Mirror, Clarity, Life as We Knew It, This World We Live In (sequel to Life As We Knew It), Anna and the French Kiss, The Hunger Games, Catching fire (sequel to HG), Mocking Jay (last book in HG trilogy), Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness (sequel to BC) , Angelfire, Fallen, Torment (sequel to Fallen), Wither,Hex Hall, Demonglass, Matched, and Across the Universe.

See? I told ya there were a lot! :)

You have three chances to enter. BUT to have a chance to win you have to follow me.

1. Follow me on my blog! (Comment saying you follow moi!)
2. Comment a book recommendation* entry x2
3. Share this post!* entry x3

*Not required

If you want to participate you must comment telling me you are following me, if you are recommending a book comment the book and author, and if you are sharing this post then on that same comment leave me the link! Also leave your email at the end of your comment (unless I know ya!) :)

You have 3 chances to win! (This will be international) The deadline will be next Friday April, 15th 9:00pm CDT! Good luck :)

Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm a new follower :)

I'd recommend reading VIXEN by Jillian Larkin or BRIGHT YOUNG THINGS by Anna Godbersen. Or, if you don't like historical, pick up THE SECRET YEAR by Jennifer Hubbard. Super good! :)

Jewelz said...

Thank you for participating and following me! I appreciate it :)

Cass (Words on Paper) said...


In any case, I would recommend those books KM suggested. If you're into historicals, go for DAUGHTER OF XANADU as well--brilliance. Also there's heaps of great contemporary. Too many to list. Also if you loved Pride and Prejudice, then you'll love PROM AND PREJUDICE by Elizabeth Eulberg.

Sophia the Writer said...

This giveaway rocks!!

I'm obsessed with Maria V. Snyder's books - either the Poison series, the Glass series or her newest ongoing one. Judging by the books you've read, you might like the newest one, Inside Out (and Outside In), which is like the original Across the Universe.

Book Recommendation - The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead. The first book is ok, but as you keep reading, you fall in love! :-)

Bea said...

Hello! I like If I Stay by Gayle Forman and Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld (I think you can enjoy it). Last year I fell in love with The Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine, but I am not sure that you will like it because it is not YA. If you want more recommendations you can add me on goodreads and I will send you a lot of recommendations :D

I'm going to comment on your Liar Society review because I'm curious about that one. And btw, I loved Paranomalcy too!
