I read pretty much any chance I get. I mostly read YA books but some adult ones as well. To me all books are precious gems and are meant to be treasured.

  1. Awesome giveaway Laura and congrats on making it to 50 followers:) I'm not entering, I already have this one, but I would say right now my favorite book of 2011 would either be Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh or Anna Dressed in Blood:) Good luck on getting all your books read too!

  2. hey love bug!! thanks for the awesome giveaway!! and yay for our readathon!!!

    Thereadingnook123@gmail.com and my favorite book of 2011 so far is shine by lauren myracle

  3. I found this at just the right time, my TBR pile is out of control. My birthday is this month so I always stock pile in August too. Oh, I could go on forever about why I need this mini read-a-thon. I'm participating, but I don't need to be entered in the giveaway - I'm lucky enough to have a signed copy of Shiver (thanks to Fountain Bookstore in Richmond). Anyway, thanks for hosting and I'll be interested to see how everyone does. Good Luck!

  4. Hmmm... FAV book of 2011? As the World Dies by Rhiannon Frater!


  5. My absolute fav book I've read in 2011 (I don't know if it was published in 2011) was The Passage by Justin Cronin. AMAZING book!


  6. OMG I desperately need this book. Please please count me in :)


    What is my favorite book of 2011 so far? I just finished Matched (even though it came out last year). Does that count?

    Thanks for the giveaway and congrats on reaching 50!

  7. What a great giveaway! I'm not entering because I'm actually not a fan of this series, but congrats on the followers!

  8. Wow, thanks for the chance to win this! I have been hoping to get into this series soon. And congrats on 50!!! [: Definitely many more to come for you.

  10. Great giveaway!! I'm not a big fan of this series (so I'm won't be entering), but I wanted to say congrats!

    I need to have a read-a-thon of my own this week! I'm having something of a reading slump and I need to get through some books badly! I may try to do that the next couple days! We'll see how it goes...

  11. Becky @ Book Bite Reviews

    I think my favorite book of 2011 is between two books that i've read this year. Those are "The Pearl Savage" By Tamara Rose Blodgett and "An Apple For Zoe" By Thomas Amo. They are total opposited of each other. Ones super scary and the other is lovey dovey with some scary parts, but mostly action.

    BTW AWESOME giveaway!! So excited to be entering =D
