    Well the first person to comment is obsessed with Cassandra Clare. I am obsessed with Richelle Mead. Dying to read Bloodlines. Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series. And I was completely crazy about the last book. Could not stop thinking about it when i read it in December.

  5. Hi Sammie! This is a great giveaway! Congrats on 100 followers!

    I'm an high school English teacher and I read constantly. My goal this year was 200 books, but I'm already at 132, so I might need to up the goal a little. Since I began my blog reviewing books in late January, I've tried to review a book a day, so I'm currently reading a book per day, on top of teaching. I love my life. :)

    Now you know a little about me! :)

  7. Hey Sammie! Congrats on reaching over 100 followers... it feels great doesn't it? I found your site from Rhiannon Paille's blog and then read all about the super giveaway too!!
    I can't say that I have a favourite book... there are MANY, too many to list, but I adore YA urban fantasy, paranormal romance and all that stuff!
    I write YA urban fantasy and chick lit myself, with my first ebook out now (woo hoo!!)
    Anyway, here's to your next 100 followers!!
    Best wishes

  9. Suzy - I know exactly what you mean. Trying to choose a favorite book is like trying to pick a favorite child, anyway! lol

    Bonnie - Nooooo....I have NOT tried that. I must remedy this situation immediately. Aw. Thank you so much! I hope you like it!

  10. Sammie, this is a great idea! I might have to steal it for when I get closer to my release date. :-)

    Something interesting about me...? I'm a strict vegetarian. Sorry, that was lame, but it was the first thing to pop in my head. HA!

  13. Hey! I found your blog through "Me My Shelf and I" and I love it! I'm interested in the paranormal romance genre, but haven't gotten a chance to really get into it- mostly because I haven't had any pleasure reading time because of school! But now that it's the summer, I have a lot of reading to do! I'm also about to launch a co-authored blog with my friend, and it's sites like yours that I look to for inspiration! I hope to hear more from you and I appreciate your willingness to do a giveaway!

  14. Congrats. I'm not good telling something about me. I love books, my favorites ones are, TMI and twiligt, I have a blog, is in spanish elespacioderonyka.blogspot.com. and like your blog.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  15. Congrats on reaching 100 followers!
    Something about me, hmm... my most favourite movie is The Phantom of the Opera (2004) because its a combination of everything I love in a movie - drama, good music, gorgeous costumes, good actors and mainly - a powerful and beautiful story. Similarly, one of my most favourite books ever is a book called The Phantom by Susan Kay which tells the story of The Phantom from his birth to his death and its the book I cried most while reading.
    Thank you for this incredible giveaway! Id like to win the Package #1. My GFC follower name is LilyxJames.

    This isn't easy for me to choose my favorite book but I could say that the book which made me to love books is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
    I 'm also addicted to chocolate and tv series. I love Dexter and Fringe.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    Something about me? I love paranormal books, I don't care if they are YA or adult. Also, I love dragons. If there's a book with a dragon in it, it's very probable that I've read it.
