I'd love to win! Thanks for the giveaway! I'd like to host a giveaway soon, but have none at the moment that I'm willing to give up. :)

My favorite books are The Twilight Saga. I know that it's SUCH an unoriginal answer...but it's my favorite. Followed by The Hunger Games, City of Bones (I NEED City of Ashes!), Maximum Ride Series, The Vampire Diaries Series, and the Last Apprentice series.

I'm becoming a follower! +3

I would love to win. I am a follower and my favorite books is: The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. I just loved the whole series and it was something that really helped me get into reading again.

My favorite book...if I can only pick ONE...is Persuasion by Jane Austen. I love the idea of thwarted love being given a second chance, and the way that Austen investigates and describes the interactions and frustrations that ultimately make a family real. It's romantic, yes, but it's also natural in the disappointments and vagaries of life. And that's true as much today as in the time when Austen wrote it.

Thanks for holding the giveaway!

I have to agree with Jessica Secret. But not so much the twilight series. I mean don't me wrong i like the twilight series but i guess i'm over it.I LOVE the Immortal Instruments, City of Bones is the first, which i just finished reading. It was just so fun and Jace is *HOT*. Hunger Games 2(can't wait 4 CATCHING FIRE), that book is like a must READ. Maximum Ride series another Must read.The Vampire Diaries Is just awesome, its more of a "Life AFTER Twilight" book.

Hi and welcome to the blogging world :D My name's Lisette and I'd love to enter your giveaway :D I also already have two of those but if I win I'd give them to my best friend Daisy :) She loves YA books as much as me.

I can't just choose one favorite book because there are so many but I'll tell you one of my favorites. Ron Koertge's Margaux with an X is one of my favorite books because I LOVED the writing and for some reason after reading it I just felt, I don't know how to explain it but just..satisfied. That's how great the book was to me. :D

At the moment my favourite book is Hollywood Car Wash by Lori Culwell. It's a great realistic read about a normal girl becoming a celebrity. It has real emotions and you can really connect with the characters.

Welcome to the blogging world and thanks for holding a contest for the carnival!!

My favorite book? This is really hard, I love the Harry Potter series and the third and sixth are my favorite. But for a regular book, I'd say The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. So amazing.

Margay said...

My favorite book is Twilight because, aside from being a good story, it introduced me to YA books, which I might have overlooked otherwise.

I have a lot of favorite books but one that I go back to regularly is Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I know it's a classic and a lot of people don't like the classics but this one has always been "comfort food" for me. A recent favorite book has been Hunger Games which was great!

I am also a follower!

My favorite book is A Thousand Splendid Sons because it's such a beautifully written story about women, relationships, sacrifice, and love. It also really illuminates a collective humanity despite cultural differences.

p.s. The Book Thief is an incredible story! I was excited to see that you're reading it.

So those are three books that I really want to read and am saving my money for since I devour books the way some people eat food.

My favorite book is Eragon by Christopher Paolini. It takes you into a magical world full of creatures of myth and legend and some made up from the mind of a 19 year old boy. It takes you on an adventure of vengenance, learning, and growing. If you read it on the base level it's a fantasy book akin to LOTR series. On another level it teaches us about earning our way, growing and understanding the importance of taking a stand and keeping to your moral and standards. It incorporates friendship, unrequited love, magic (my favorite!!), growth and understanding.

If it's open to all then i would like to give this a go.

My fav book is Magician by Raymond E Feist, it was the first really long book I read in English, and i fell in love. A great story and pure fantasy
