    Happy One Year Blogoversary! Since there is a mile long list of book releases I am anxious for, I will go with the second question. Which is still not an easy one to answer. Here is my “To Choose From” list: Parallel, Arclight, Sweet Peril, The Rules for Disappearing, Taken, Icons, The Collector and Dark Triumph. Yeah, I know it is almost all of them. I can’t help it!!

  26. Amanda

    Happy Blogoversary! I can’t wait to read the 3rd in the Divergent trilogy. Unfortunately, I have a long wait. I also would like to read The Rising by Kelley Armstrong. Her Darkest Powers and Darkest Rising series are very good.

  27. starryeyedjen

    Congrats again on the milestone! πŸ˜€ I think I’d pick either Sweet Peril or The 5th Wave. One so I can swoon, and the other because it sounds frickin’ awesome. πŸ™‚

    I think I would go with Taken…

  43. Myka Cervania

    I’m anxious for the book release of the third installment in the Divergent trilogy, “ALLEGIANT”. Ms. Roth has killed a couple of characters from the previous books so I’m worried that another character (perhaps one of my favorites) will also die. There are so many things I am anxious about that I can’t tell them all but at the same time, I am also thrilled to read the third book. I have a feeling that Ms. Roth will, once again, drive her readers into another level of different emotions. The book will be released this October 22 ( yes that’s still 6 months away) but I can already imagine myself bursting into tears while reading. So that is all. πŸ™‚

  44. Kelley Lee

    Again love the Friends gifs! I have to say I am most excited about The Originals as I read about it in your StS post! My second choice though is All I Need! Great giveaway and again happy anniversary.

  45. Makaela

    I would love In the Shadow of Blackbirds! But, then again I did just finish Sweet Evil and can’t wait to see what happens in the next one… such tough decisions.

  46. Rachel

    Happy Blogoversary!!!!

    I think I’d pick In the Shadow of Blackbirds πŸ™‚ Thanks for the chance and congrats on 1 year!!

  47. Emily

    It’s a hard pick between Dark Triumph and The 5th Wave…but I think I’d choose The 5th Wave. Also, I am a GFC follower under Emily I just accidentally spelled my name wrong in the Rafflecopter. So I’m not cheating I really am a follower πŸ™‚
