Daughter of Smoke and Bone Giveaway

<3 Hi everyone!

In an effort to combat my lazy blogging habits, I decided it would be exciting to get things started with a giveaway!




When I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, it transported me to another world entirely. The language drew me in, and the movements and colors and ideas and shapes kept me tucked away safely watching the story unfold. It's an amazing read, and I really REALLY want to share the love and excitement with someone else.


I'm giving away TWO new copies of Daughter of Smoke and Bone!

  3. I had to think really really hard on this! I've read so many books and I've enjoyed so many of them. Picking which one I fell in love with last seems to be an arduous task!

    I think the last book(s) I really fell in love with were all of them from Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. The time and care that was put into developing the characters and their individual stories in the whole of everything happening around them still gives me shivers. Goodkind is able to tell a lengthy story, be entirely fluffy with the details and relationships, and still have me hanging on every word. Turning page after page before I finally realize it's 4am in the morning and I have to be up in 3 hours.

    I only just recently found out another book was added to the series last year. I imagine I'll fall in love with it just like I had with the rest of them.

    1. Gosh, you're hardcore. XD I have those books, but I've been so hesitant to read them because of their length.

  4. OOOH! MORE BOOKS TO ADD TO MY BOOKSHELF. The cover is GORGEOUS.

    I think the last book I fell in love with would be The Hunger Games. Before that? Percy Jackson... And before that? Horns by Joe Hill.

    1. When people say to make every word count when writing, Laini completely does that with this book. It's strung together so artfully. <3

  9. Hi, Juli!

    The last book to suck me in, I am still currently sucked into. Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Such a vibrant world. I wonder how it will end!!

  10. I am still incredibly much in love with the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Which is also where my deviantart user name (ValaSedai) partly comes from. :)
    Sadly enough I'm only in book 9 of 14 so I really gotta get going. >.<

  12. I have wanted to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone for a while now, so I'm glad I found you!

    The last book that sucked me in was, unfortunately, the Hunger Games. I am not usually a fan of YA, preferring the likes of Virginia Andrews, Jean Auel, the classics; but for some reason I found myself in Waterstones after the film, and ended up finishing the trilogy in three days! Catching Fire and Mockingjay weren't quite as gripping as the first book, but Collins still impressed me. Now, I'm looking to read more YA fiction as I'm starting to really enjoy it.

    This comment thread has also made me want to given Ellen Hopkins a read...

    1. Haha, yay YA fiction! <3 Yeah, I definitely enjoyed the first book the most, but I can't wait to see the second movie.

      Yeah, I gotta get reading Ellen Hopkins. :D

  13. <3 I love to read. I don't often enough because I get tired of reading the same thing over and over...at least I used to. ;) There was this one set of books centered around quilts and they are amazing. The author is EMILIE RICHARDS and her SHENANDOAH ALBUM NOVELS are wonderful! :) Oh and I totally want to give this book a try. I can't afford to buy it so I hope I win! :P Oh and this is jenepooh from dA. <3

    :waves: :D

  14. Ooooohh, yay book giveaways!

    I more fell in love w/ an author than a book (again). I just finally finished Bite Me, the last in the Vampire Trilogy by Christopher Moore. Never thought I'd read a vampire love story but it's not what you would expect unless you know Moore's style, and still the ending surprised me just a little. I'd also recommend A Dirty Job, which is what turned me on to Moore in the first place.

    I love supernatural stories, and the cover of this book you're giving away is so perdyyyy o_o

    1. I've heard of Christopher Moore, but I've never taken the plunge to read his books. I'm compelled to read them after your comment. :D

  15. Oh I'd love to read that one! :D My dA name is Kneeling-Glory. I'm currently reading The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht. It is gorgeously written and rich in detail and lore. You might like it. :D

  16. I haven't read a novel for months. Can't find enough time to sit and finish one. Though I do remember a book I read years ago (among several others that seem to have impressed me a lot >_> ). It was called I think Glass Dragons. The plot and the characters were so...immersive o_O I think it had several sequels and prequels but it seemed to be able to stand on its own for a first time reader. It had a vampire and it was not sparkly and was awesome :D
    I tried looking for the book in the library but they didn't have it for loans :C
