Two Year Blogoversary- Giveaways #3 & 4!

Today I wanted to give a special thanks to all of the publishers, authors and readers.  If it weren't for any of you, I'd be book-less and lost in my own daydreams instead of someone else's!

Publishers have continuously invested in my blog, from asking me to be apart of blog tours to sending me books for review, even asking me to interview authors at a book event!  I'd just like to thank everyone at HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Harlequin Teen, Bloomsbury, Egmont, Scholastic, Macmillan, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Disney Hyperion and Little, Brown who have been in contact with me over the past year.

If it hadn't been for authors like Lauren Oliver, Kody Keplinger, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Rossi, Kendare Blake, Amy Plum, Wendy Higgins, Susan Dennard, Tahereh Mafi, Simone Elkeles, Rainbow Rowell and Laini Taylor, I doubt I would still have the urge to read as much as I do!

Finally, I wanted to thank every one who keeps encouraging me with their comments, discussions and questions!  I love hearing from you, because it makes me realize that my time is never wasted!  Even when I go through reading and blogging slumps, I remember that there is always at least one person who values the things I post, and that alone makes me want to blog as much as possible!

The first giveaway I'm going to hold today has to do with the books I would have never read if it hadn't been for blogging.  A whole new world *cue music* opened up for me when I made the decision to write reviews and these books have become some of my favorites, so I'd love to pass some to you!

 

This giveaway is open internationally & two winners will be able to choose one of the books listed.

Ends on July 6th, 2013 (I'm extending the rest of the blogoversary giveaways because I've been such a bad blogger...yay for you!)


Now for the next giveaway, I have a mystery box of 8 books to send to someone who lives in the US or Canada!  All of them are ARCs from earlier this year...some I've reviewed and some I haven't!

All of them are YA and many of them came out in the spring.  Want more?  How about a few hints about two of the books?  Both of them came out in April.  One is about a main character who is made up of human and extraterrestrial DNA.  The other is the sequel in a vampire series written by the author of another much-loved series.  Pretty easy to guess at least one of these, right?


Good luck and don't forget to return for more blogoversary fun!
P.S. I'm still giving away Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park!

  2. Thanks for this great giveaway!

    I'm thankful for Cassandra Clare's The Infernal Devices series because of its love triangle which was the very first one that I loved until the very end and to Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series for all those times that made my fangal heart go crazy. Hehe.

  4. Happy blogoversary!
    I'm thankful for The Infernal Devices Trilogy. I just love everything about that series. I really doubt I would have read Anna and the French Kiss if I didn't have a blog because that's where I first saw it! Plus, the bookstores here don't have copies instore so I would probably have never read it if it wasn't for bloggers :)

  5. I absolutely love The Fault in Our Stars! And the Percy Jackson series and The Infernal Devices and the Bloodlines series. Really, I'm just thankful that there are so many great authors out there!

  7. I'm thankful for Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, without reading some awesome reviews of it on blogs I would never have known to read it.

  8. I'm really thankful for Twilight, I know that not a lot of people like this book, but it's the one that got me to love reading. It still one of my favorites and therefore I will always love. If it hadn't been for bloggers I probably would have never picked up Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout and I would have no idea what I was doing without it and Daemon. YUM! :) Thanks you the great giveaway, and Happy 2 year Blogoversary!!

  22. I'm thankful for every book. Reading is my passion and despite the fact that some books might not be a 5 star, I'm still happy with them :) I would've never read The fault in our stars without the blogging world: thank god I did! It's such a beautiful book.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm so thankful for ALL books, but I'm really thankful for Harry Potter. Those are what really got me reading way back in elementary school, and without them I wouldn't be where I am today. As for what's in the box...I hope that The 5th Wave makes an appearance, because I have yet to read it, and it would also be nice if Dare You To was in there :D

  29. Oh man, there are SO many books I never would have read if it weren't for blogging, like the Elemental series, Sweet Evil, and Grave Mercy, just to name a few. I'm always so thankful to be a part of this ah-mazing community.

    As for what's in that box... honestly, I hope there's an ARC of Sweet Peril. I've been wanting a copy for such a long time. ;) But I would be happy with ANY of the ARCs that are in there.

    Congratulations, and HAPPY BLOGOVESRARY! <3

  38. I;m guessing The Eternity Cure will be in the box (yay!) and The Rules (which looks good!) It would be awesome if Chantress were in there, and The Beautiful and the Cursed, ooh and maybe Siege and Storm!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm so thankful for The Hunger Games, because those books are what truly got me pumped about YA literature (especially dystopians). I've only recently joined the blogging network, and it's opened my eyes to so many books that I might never have found otherwise. I used to pick new books by browsing the YA section at the library and grabbing whatever jumped out at me, but now I have a TBR pile that has hundreds of books!

    ReplyDelete
  40. And while I know it doesn't match the hints, I'd love The Elite to be in there. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! :D

    ReplyDelete

  42. There are so many books that blogs have introduced me too. I would have to say the first book that I found on a blog would have been Half'blood by Jennifer Armentrout and honestly I loved it!!! As for what I would like in the box anything to do with YA is great, but I would love a copy of Of Triton by Anna Banks!!! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm thankful of Iron king series

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm not thankful to any bloggers (sorry) because i prefer to find my own books, and I don't know what i want in the box. Something good hopefully ;).

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm thankful for other bloggers, because I never would have found the Archers of Avalon series by Chelsea Fine. And they are one of my favorite series ever. :)

    And I love surprises, so I'm not even going to try to guess. :)

    ReplyDelete

    As for the box, I think the books are The Eternity Cure (since Julie Kagawa wrote the Iron Fey series) and The Rules :D

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm thankful for SO many books I have found on blogs, the most recent being The Testing which I am reading now and really enjoying.

    As for what I want in the box? I would be grateful for any YA releases from this year. I haven't had money to buy any books but 2 from this year, but there were over a hundred I am dying to read! :) If I have to name names, then I would love School Spirits, The Rules, Let the Sky Fall, Stung, Pivot Point, Impostor, Invisibility, The Elite, The Moon and More, Breaking Point, Infinityglass, The Originals, Sky on Fire, or more I can't think of. Those are the only ones from earlier in the year that come to mind, but there are so many more I would love to read. Thanks for such a great giveaway!!

  49. I am thankful for the Divergent series, which I found through a book blog awhile back. I love it! I'm hoping for anything dystopian fiction (although I love many genres).

    ReplyDelete
  50. I am thankful for The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare, especially the last book, Clockwork Princess. I usually hate love triangles in stories but this one completely charmed me!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I never would have read Divergent or Daughter of Smoke and Bone if it weren't for other bloggers, so I'm so grateful I read so many book blogs!

  52. I'd love for there to be The Nightmare Affair in the mystery box, I've been waiting to read that one for a while!

  55. I'm thankful for a lot of books like Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Twilight saga ('cause I've met some of the most awesome people and friends through it), Vampire Academy series, Divergent and Shatter Me trilogy (Veronica Roth and Tahereh Mafi are all kinds of awesome), The Grisha trilogy..

    If it weren't for blogs I would've never known the brilliance that's John Greene and his books. Also, I would probably missed a lot of great debut books like Pivot Point, Reboot, Coda, Throne of Glass, Under the Never Sky, Unraveling, Pushing the Limits, My Life Next Door, Taken, If You Find Me, Altered..
    Happy 2nd blogoversary and thanks for a giveaway! :)
