  1. I have my own giveaway, but I'm still entering this one. Maybe I can trade out my regular copy for a signed one ;-)

    As far as an author that fits me...it's a tough call, but I think probably John Green has written some of the books that stuck with me the most lately.

  2. great giveaway!

    i have a lot of favorites, but of all the books i read this year i'd have to say i liked the sky is everywhere by jandy nelson the most. everything was perfect for me, and i liked how the character of lennie started out lonely and confused, and eventually found happiness. the novel really stuck to me, and it was an all-around outstanding read :)

  3. I'd like to say that Sarah Dessen had always stuck with me. I think theres something about the way she writes that never seems to bored or annoy me!

  5. Urgh, I hate picking favorites. But I guess I'd have to say that Hate List by Jennifer Brown is probably one of my top favorites. It really impressed me and made my top ten, I think.

    Thanks for holding this contest!

  6. Ummm... I might be a bit biased here seeing as this was the book that introduced me to YA lit but, you can't take away its brilliant-ness *is that even a word?* I'd have to say one of my fave books is Beautiful Creatures =)

  7. I think my favorite would be a tie between Laurie Halse Anderson and Sarah Dessen. Both of which are totally amazing authors and I love them for totally different reasons, but either way, total <3

  22. My perrfect fit hasn't been written yet - that's why I'm trying to write it, ha ha.

    Lord of the Rings is my absolute all time favorite, but I'd say that laely Shiver by Maggie Stiefvator is high on the list and so is the Hunger Games.

  23. Very cool giveaway! I recently saw the trailer and after reading the review it's gone straight to the top of my wish list.
    I would have to say that It's a tie between the Book Thief and 13 Reasons Why. Both made a lasting impression on my heart.

  27. Thanks for the contest! I think a novel that fits me perfectly as a reader is A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly, because she makes so many awesome literary allusions and I love to read!

  28. I read this book Savvy by Ingrid Law and I really related to it because she felt like and outsider and that she'd never get where she wanted to do. So many days I feel that way!

    BTW I didn't see a space for it on the form so here's my twitter name @justkeepreading

  30. WOW thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    I would have to say that the books that I can most relate to would be the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson. I feel very close to Max and have the same beliefs that she has as far as wanting to save the world.
