The post where I give something away...

Okay, I'll admit, I didn't have a blog post in mind for today. But...this works in your favour because I'm lazy and laziness equals free books!

This isn't in celebration of anything and you're not going to need to jump over hoops...much haha. But yes, some lucky reader is going to get a book out of this random post.

Not only are you in for the chance to win a KINDLE! but you now can get a book to put on it (or a hardcopy. Totally your choice). And here's how...

I want to know what 2012 debut book you are most looking forward to reading and why. That's it. That's all you have to do to enter. There are of course, a few rules.

1) You must be a follower of this blog.
2) You must comment to this blog post with your answer and your email addy.
3) Answers need to be in before 21st September to be announced 22nd.
4) If you follow my personal blog, I'll put you in the drawing twice.
5) You can choose any book.
6) Open internationally to anyone Book Depo delivers to!
7) Good luck :D



  1. Something Like Normal by Trish Doller
    Because this book sounds amazing! I love YA contemporary, the romance sounds so great, and characters in the military really interest me. I cannot wait to read it! :)

    I follow this blog and your blog: A.J.

  3. INSURGENT (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

    Because I read DIVERGENT and absolutely loved it! I want to find out what happens next in the series: to Tris, to Four, to everyone. The ending of DIVERGENT left me hanging off the cliff. And now I have no clue what else to say, I'm so excited... :)

    I follow this blog and your blog: Megan Conway

  4. I think I'm most looking forward to CINDER. Androids and Cinderella? Awesome. I love a good retelling. But I also love original stuff...hmm...either way it will be fun!

  5. I'm most looking forward to Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver! I fell in love with the first book, Delirium, and I've been eagerly awaiting the next one for months now! Delirium ended on such a cliffhanger and I'm so excited to see what happens next! You just fall in love with the characters, setting, plot, everything! The cover is beautiful and Lauren Oliver is very talented! It's such a fresh and unique take on YA Dystopian.
    My email address is-
    Thanks so much for such an awesome giveaway!

  6. So far I'm most intrigued by Cinder. Sounds fascinating.

  10. This was a tough choice, so many awesome-sounding books are due out in 2012, but the book I'm looking forward to most in 2012 is Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent by Veronica Roth.

  11. Megan Bostic is a virtual friend of mine, so I'm definitely looking forward to her debut - Never Eighteen.

  12. The Debut author I'm most looking forward to is
    Incarnate (Newsoul #1) by Jodi Meadows. Bonus: the cover is gorgeous.

  20. Thanks for the giveaway.

  21. I'm looking forward to Insurgent more than anything else in 2012. Divergent was made of awesome, and I miss Four already, so I need to read more of him :)

    I follow both blogs too


  22. There are a lot of books I'm looking forward to next year, continuing the series I've started, but one book that I'm really looking forward to is When the Sea is Rising Red by debut author Cat Hellisen.

    jlynettes @ hotmail . com

  23. Hm...I looked it up and there are tons, and tons, and TONS of sequels coming out. It's similar in the movie world. That's...sort of disappointing.

    However, there are a few new series starting up that I'm interested in. I think I have to give my vote to "Above World" by Jen Reese.

    Yes, it's yet another dystopian novel, but it sounds interesting!

    Oh, and I follow your personal blog, too :)

  24. opps I forgot to mention that I follow both blogs as sablelexi...

  25. You're asking me to pick one? *Hyperventillates.

    Okay, you said debut, right? That narrows it down. A wittle.

    Here it is....
    INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows. I mean....have you SEEN the cover?

  26. What 2012 book? Hmmm.... I know a lot of people have said Insurgent, and that would probably be my pick, too. Endlessly by Kiersten White is another must-read, and I'm pretty sure that's coming out next year...

    I follow your personal blog, too. :)

  27. Only one? How am i supposed to choose!

    But i think the debut i'm looking forward to the most is Everneath by Brodi Ashton. I mean, the cover is just so pretty!

    Following both blogs c:


  28. I guess the one I'm most looking forward to would be Something Like Normal by Trish Doller.

    I instantly fell in love with Travis' voice when I read Trish's "work in progress" posts. Plus, he's a 19-year-old Marine? Hello there, handsome! :)

    Something Like Normal sounds like a YA contemporary made for me.

    +1 I follow your personal blog, too.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway! :D


  29. Oh, you're so generous!
    I follow both blogs :)

    And the book I'm most looking forward to is Try Not To Breath by Jennifer Hubbard cos it sounds right up my kid, vivacious girl..I'm sold!

  30. Thanks I follow both your blogs and congrats on your book deal.

    I'm most looking forward to The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith because the story reminds me of the movie Before Sunrise where 2 people meet, get to know each other and go their seperate ways but of course I hope something more happens too.


  31. I don't know if there's a title yet or not, but I'm really looking forward to Kiersten White's third installment in the PARANORMALCY storyline.

  32. I cannot pick just one 2012 debut, so I went with my top three.

    Crewel by Gennifer Albin
    Glitch by Heather Anastasiu
    The Nightmare Factory by Lucy Jones

    I think these three sound brilliant and I cannot wait till they come out. =)

  34. There's new ways of getting entries now, guys! Just comment again if you did any of those two things :D

  35. That's hard to answer. There are so many. I'll go with Kristin Simmons' Article 5.

    I'm a follower here and on your personal blog. I added Heart Be Damned on Goodreads and to my YA Debuts 2012 list :-)

  36. No doubt about it I can't wait to read The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker. Not only is the cover amazingly simple and beautiful, but who does not want to read about weaponized rabies virus!

    I follow both blogs via GFC as Jessy.

    I added the book to my Good Reads.

  37. Oh geez, hard question!! I think I'll have to go with Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I've been impatiently waiting for that book since early January and then I saw movie rights were sold and the smoking cover reveal and then an amazingly full synopsis and oh man, dying to read it! I love dystopians and the early reviews so far have been gushing. Can January come any sooner?!

    Huge congrats on your book deal, Chanelle!! My Heart Be Damned sounds SO GOOD, I've already added it to goodreads :D Also following this blog and your personal one.

    Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway!

  38. I can't wait for Insurgent by Veronica Roth. Divergent blew me away and I am dying for more

  39. Shadowfell by (Goddess) Juliet Marillier!! Because she's my favorite author of all time, everything she writes is AMAZING. I can hardly wait for it! :)

  41. The 2012 debut I'm looking forward to the most is INSURGENT by Veronica Roth. Why? Because the first boook DIVERGENT was absolutely amazing, and I'm expecting the second book to be just as good if not better. I'm not sure if Insurgent is really considered a "debut" though so another book I'm looking forward to is INCARNATE by Jodi Meadows. Why? Because the summary sounds enticing, and the beautiful cover is to die for.

    I follow this blog and your personal blog.
    I've added "My Heart Be Damned" on Goodreads. I also voted for it on the list "YA Debuts 2012". The summary sounds so interesting! I can't wait until MHBD comes out. :)
