I shall post first. Because I'd rather do this than the copy editing test I'm taking. Which is brutal.

Hmm... My newest favorite book.

I'm going to go with LIVING DEAD GIRL by Elizabeth Scott. I'm still reading THE PASSAGE by Justin Cronin, so I can't legitimately say it's a favorite yet. But I loved LIVING DEAD GIRL because it was so haunting and *real.* Sure, the book is a piece of fiction, but it makes you realize that, somewhere out there, there a girls who've been kidnapped and abused and held against their will. It makes your skin crawl, but the writing is so amazing, you can't turn away. Not even for a second. I read the entire thing in one sitting, and even sent it to the contest winner on my blog because I feel everyone should read it.

So, let's see.

What an excellent giveaway! You rock! My newest favorite book is Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus. I love it because it's a very original concept and is masterfully pulled off! I'll be blogging about your contest over at Heather's Odyssey this Friday. That puts me at 9 points I think!

Summer said...

Happy 21st! It's great to be legal. :D

+2 : My newest favorite book is probably The English Patient. While I found many sections dry (and in need of editing), the story and voice was so haunting that I found myself thinking about it when I wasn't reading. And something about the desert is so magical and mysterious.

Happy 21st Birthday!

I'm trying to finish my September challenge on GoodReads. I'm in the middle of Stephanie Tyler's Hard to Hold trilogy. I'm enjoying the action, suspense and romance.

+1 my newest favourite book is The Queen's Fool by Philippa Gregpry
+1 I love historical fiction with some action, romance, and war. It's so exciting, and the descriptions are so detailed - you feel as if you're in the book together with the characters. If you like historical fiction set in the Elizabethan period, this book won't disappoint.

Congrats, thanks for the giveaway. :)

My newest favorite book is Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch. I love this book because it pretty darn hilarious and you get a chance to connect with all the characters not just the main ones.

Am a follower.

Thanks for making this international. Awesome contest!

Actually, I haven't had the chance to read anything new lately, cos my workload is getting kinda heavy, but Mockingjay was my newest favourite book.

And I loved it because while it wasn't what I totally imagined it would be, it was a fitting end to the trilogy.

My new favourite book is Will Grayson, Will Grayson -- I know we all talk about 'voice', but this had the most distinctive voice I've encountered in ages, and it just made the story. The characters rocked, the story rocked, the whole thing rocked. I've become one of those people who keep trying to press their new favourite thing onto others.

The last book I read was The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June. I loved it because t was about family sticking together when times are difficult, changing and scary. It's also great because it's funny and witty and listening to the 3 sisters that are the main characters is hilarious. So, congrats on all your followers!
