Getting To Know You Giveaway Hop!


The ladies over at Cuddlebuggery have gotten us together to host a Getting to Know You giveaway hop!

It’s simple, we are giving away a book we love, so here you’ll be able to choose one of my 5-star reads from this year! It’s obvious from the choices that I love me some contemporary romance, but I also love historical and fantasy/magical novels! In other words, I consider myself an eclectic reader. And it all began with….yes, you guessed it: TWILIGHT. Check out THIS POST and my ABOUT ME page to read more about the wonderful journey from Twilight to this blog’s creation. :)


You Get To Pick One Of These!

Go HERE to find out more about them!

    I think I’ve been following you for a while now, but this might be my first comment. So. Hi! Love the new design (not sure how “new” it is just that this is my first viewing). Also, I loved Looking for Alibrandi and I’m currently reading Open Road Summer and loving it :)

    The only one I’ve read is Open Road Summer and it was like a 4.5 star read for me! Soooo good. If I win, I would definitely lean towards The Raven Boys because I’ve been meaning to start this series soon.

    I’m also doing this giveaway hop on my blog! :)

    I’ve read the first two books in the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, so I can’t wait to read Dreams of Gods and Monsters, that unfortunately hasn’t been released in my country yet =/ But I’m also really curious about The Winner’s Curse and The Raven Boys!

    Ooooh good books!! I just recently read The Winner’s Curse- easy 5 stars! I also loved Open Road Summer! Kelly bought me Brazen as a reward for recently pushing out a human. LOL I loved Daughter of Smoke & Bone, but have yet to continue the series! I need to read The Raven Boys–I bought it when it first came out, but on my shelf it sits!!

    I featured Brazen on a recent Wishlist Wednesday post, so I would really love to read that! along with The Winner’s Curse.
    Thanks for the giveaway :-) x

    I’ve read DoGaM, it was a four-star read for me. I’ve been meaning to read The Raven Boys though, it sounds fascinating!

    Yes, I have! The Raven Boys (!!!) and Dreams of Gods and Monsters! Loved them both, and they were 5 star reads for me too. And I would pick Open Road Summer, because I haven’t read it yet but it sounds amazing. :)

    I’m actually the opposite of you – I’ll read contemporary (and really pretty much anything), but fantasy is definitely my jam. I totally loved The Raven Boys – which came as a complete shock actually. I’d read her fae books a few years ago and was totally turned off by them, but when a billion bloggers were like…do it! Read The Raven Boys you’ll love it! I finally caved in and read it, and holy cow. That writing is magical. I was also really, really surprised by The Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy! It didn’t sound like my thing – angels? Not likely! But I actually got it sent to me in a surprise giveaway of stuff. And if I thought Steifvater’s writing was magic? No one, no one has anything on Laini Taylor’s writing. If I could eat it I would. SO FREAKING AMAZING!

    That being said, if I got a pick, I’d be going with Melina Marchetta’s book. After reading her Lumatere Chronicles (which no question are going on my top ten books I read this year) I will read ANYTHING she writes. For all time.

    The Raven Boys and the other two books so far in the cycle were 5 star reads for me!! Winners Curse and Laini Taylor’s books have both been on my tbr for awhile. I recently FINALLY got Winners Curse so yay I can read that soon! I have read so many good things about Open Road Summer. And now you give it 5 stars… I definitely need to check this book out!

    I’ve read “Brazen” and it was a 5 star read for me also :)
    The other book I want to read badly out of those above, is “The Winner’s Curse”!

    Kristan Higgins WAITING ON YOU would be my first choice. Added the books to my wish list.

    The only one I’ve read is The Winner’s Curse and unfortunately I was not a huge fan :( The characters annoyed me a lot haha. Wonderful choices though, I would love to start The Raven Boys soon!

    I’ve only read “The Raven Boys” of all of those – it was a five-star read for me too. I just loved Blue to bits. I’m really looking forward to reading the sequel.

    I really loved Dreams of Gods and Monsters, The Winner’s Crime, and The Raven Boys! I just realized I don’t actually own DoGaM because I listened to it (the narrator is amazing), so I would love a copy for my shelves!

    I mostly place 5 stars on YA with striking emotional scenes and ction. Thank you for the giveaway and nice to meet you too!

    Yes! The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is most probably my favorite book of the year and Laini Taylor is one of my all-time favorite authors. Dreams of Gods and Monsters is beautiful <3 Open Road Summer is a good contemporary :)

    I’ve read Dreams of Gods and Monsters, and for me it was more like 4 or 4.5 stars, I really enjoyed all of the books in the series!

    The only one that I have read (kinda) is Open Road Summer! I started it in the summer, and then got distracted by others and still haven’t finished it :/ I really, really want to read The Winner’s Curse, Brazen and The Raven Boys!! ESPECIALLY The Raven Boys, I feel like that series is getting so much more buzz now that Blue Lily, Lily Blue is out and I was recently oogling the covers in the bookstore :P Thanks for the giveaway!!!

    I really enjoyed Open Road Summer! I have The Winner’s Curse and The Raven Boys on my shelf but for some very strange reason haven’t gotten around to reading them yet. Must rectify this asap!

    I am also a contemporary girl (contemporary YA mostly). In fact, my debut contemporary YA, Love and Other Unknown Variables, just came out last month. I’m a HUGE JoJo Moyes fan. She crushed me with Me Before You. CRUSHED ME! I still get upset if I think about it too much! Nice to meet you on this bloghop! Look forward to following your blog!

    I’ve read Raven Boys and Dreams of Gods and Monsters, loved both of them but the book I’m really looking forward to reading out of your list is Brazen! I have Gilt and Tarnish and I’m just starting with Gilt and enjoying it so far. Plus the covers are gorgeous.

    I read The Raven Cycle and absolutely loved it, I usually give 5 stars to books I know would be my all time favourites, I gave The Dream Thieves 5 stars. It was so good. Those characters, they do so much to my feelings. I love, love that series! Thank you for the giveaway, enjoy your day. :)

    I read, and loved, The Winner’s Curse, which I also gave a 5-star to! :) And I think I want to read the third book in the Smoke and Bone series.

    I’ve not read any of your five-star reads, but Open Road Summer is absolutely on my wishlist. I’ve heard so many great things about that book!

    I’ve read The Winner’s Curse and One Plus One but somehow I was disappointed in both of them. I often find myself disliking the books others love.

    I’ve read both The Raven Boys and Dreams of Gods & Monsters, and both were amazing books. 4.5 stars from me. I’ve also always wanted to read The Winner’s Curse.

    The Raven Boys was definitely a five star read for me as well. The writing is incredible, including both the prose and the character development and interactions.
