Best Book September Giveaway!

It's that time again, ladies and gentlemen! Time to celebrate great books by making sure that one of you get to read something I read this month that I thought was totally fabulous. Yes, this is an opportunity for you to win a FREE book!

I had some really fantastic reads this month, even if I didn't get to finish quite as many books as I might have liked. I also had a few books I read this month really disappoint me. But that's part of reading, and it's part of why I started doing this whole book blogger thing. Everybody's taste is different. I'm not here to tell you what to like. But I am here to connect all the great people I've met within the book blogging community with books that I think are totally fantastic.

This Month's Selection Is... Shut Out by Kody Keplinger

Why Did I Love It?:

-- The book grabbed my interest from page one and didn't let go.

-- The hero and heroine were totally adorable together and I was cheering for them all the way.

-- The dialogue was great and there were many moments throughout the book that were laugh out loud funny.

-- The book drew me in to the point where, when it was over, I didn't want it to end.

Other Great Books I Read:

Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

Time For Some Giveaway Fun!

I know that my taste is not necessarily everybody's taste, so this month I'm going to run my giveaway a bit different. (It also helps that I'll be mailing the book online rather then having it sitting here.)

There is going to be ONE lucky winner of this giveaway and he or she will be able to pick ONE of the following books as a prize:

Admittedly, they are all contemporary. (I get the feeling if I'd done this last month everything would have been dystopian...) If you totally don't want any of these, you are welcome to select another book I have reviewed instead. Ideally I'd like to highlight the best books I've read this month, but there is no point in sending you something you don't want when I can order any of these books. You can find all of my reviews here.

  1. Old follower here! Shut Out is already on my wishlist, so I would love to win that. :)

    I haven't read much yet this month, since the semester started back up at the end of August, but I LOVED "The Guild."

    As for a book I'd like to see a review of? I saw a series at Barnes & Noble the other day that caught my eye, but I haven't really heard anything about it: The Ranger's Apprentice. The first in the series is "The Ruins of Gorlan."

    I also just started following you on Twitter (I'm jaimelire) and sent you a request on Goodreads.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I recently read Firelight by Sophie Jordan and I loved it! So I really want to in a copy of Vanish, the second book in the series but I'm not sure if you have reviewed it (too lazy too check :P). If not, I would like Shut Out. Have you reviewed Hourglass by Myra Entire? It's pretty good too :)

  12. By the way, your GFC Follow button is not working so I followed using the option in the top bar. I hope it worked. The button is on your sidebar seems to have been incorrectly formatted or something because it's not appearing and, instead, a notification is. Hope it's not a problem.

    Thanks again for the giveaway:)


  13. I reloaded and it finally worked. So I'm appearing as a follower on your sidebar. Sorry for the unnecessary trouble.


  14. @Sarah: No problem. That happens a lot when I go to join people via GFC too. Thanks for sticking with it til it got working. I wish I knew why it does that.
