BBE Scavenger Hunt!

Hi y'all! I've got something different and exciting to offer today, and I think you'll enjoy it. One of the totally awesome blogs I follow (and get to contribute to a`la the Best Book Ever weekly feature), Short and Sweet Reviews, is celebrating their one year blogoversary with a week of giveaways and fun. Today's giveaway is a super awesome Best Book Ever scavenger hunt!

How does it work? Well, swing by Short and Sweet Reviews (you can click the image below to go to the Best Book Ever International Giveaway page) and see today's post featuring whatever book we bloggers felt like gushing over today. Then make sure you check out every blogger's post for a special coded phrase - it'll be in bold - because you will need those phrases to enter the daily giveaway. (Another happy note: Participating bloggers are also holding their own giveaways, including me! So keep reading!) Now, let's get this show on the road...

Short and Sweet

One of my favoritest (I have an English degree, I say it's a word) YA novels ever is Pegasus by Robin McKinley. It's a book I sort of stumbled upon, mainly because I fell in love with the cover, and then the story sucked me in. It was an emotional read that took over my dreams at night and made me wish for a pegasus of my own. I mean seriously: Sylvi, the Princess, has her very own pegasus, Ebon. And she can ride him as he flies! AND she can talk to the pegasi! How cool is that? McKinley is well-known for her ability to create engrossing worlds and memorable characters, and this novel definitely has a special place in my heart. I'm counting down to the sequel, because I feel like half my heart was torn out when I read the last page -- fair warning: MAJOR cliff-hanger awaits the reader, but the journey makes up for the fall.

As I typed this, I swung by Goodreads and discovered that Robin McKinley will actually be writing two more Pegasus books! I. Am. Giddy. Oh, what a painfully long wait...

...Remember how I said every blogger is also hosting a giveaway, including me? I bet you're getting curious, aren't you? Wait no longer, here are the details of my giveaway:

  1. Many, Connected, Incarnate, Everneath and this book I have been asked to review called Out of the Ashes...

  2. So many, but I remember clearly when I read the first Harry Potter book. I was babysitting a 9 year old who was listening to the books on CD and following along. She talked about HP all the time! I finally started book one and that night made my husband run out to buy the next book. While he was out the little girl I babysat's parents brought me book 2 as a surprise! I was thrilled. I called my husband and he was in the checkout line of Borders. He put back book 2 and bought me books 3 and 4. I read them all in a week and then had to wait forever (at least a year) until book 5 was published. Good times...thanks for the giveaway! I love surprises.

  3. Recently Starters, Croak, Spellcaster, Scarlet...the list goes on.

  4. Ooh! I love surprises! Pick me! Pick me! Ok, let's see there are so many but I would have to say Pride and Prejudice, Rainy Days, From Lambton to Longbourn, & These is My Words to name a few. And no I did NOT miss type These is My Words, that is the name of the book. :) Thanks!

  5. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  6. I LOVE Colleen Houck's Tiger's Curse series. I could sit down and read them all day and maybe (maybe) only get up once. I finish them in a couple of days even though they are 400ish pages and that's fast for me :)

  7. THe Hunger Games, Twilight, Cinder, the list goes on!

  8. The Girl of Fire and Thorns - loved it!


  9. I'm reading The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa right now and it has totally sucked me in! I have to make myself stop reading it to get anything done!

  10. The Great Lenore by J.M. Tohline or any of the books of The Chronicles of Elantra series by Michelle Sagara.
