Giveaway: Best Series Blog Hop Hosted by Cuddlebuggery


Yay, giveaway!


As you can see, we are participating in Cuddlebuggery's Best Series Blog Hop! I know, very exciting. We each decided to choose one series we really love and leave it up to the winner which series they'd like to try out. These are our picks (click the cover to go to the Goodreads page):

Kiersten's Pick 
The Sweetest Dark - Shana Abé
I won a copy of The Sweetest Dark through a Goodreads First Reads giveaway and it was the most wonderful thing that ever happened EVER. I fell in love with this book and its characters, then again when the second book in the series came out. This series is a great mix of romance, fantasy, action, and history all in one. If you want more about why I love it so much, check out the review I posted along with Marlon and Noor around when this blog was starting up (here). We all loved it and I think you will too!

Noor's Pick 
Partials - Dan Wells
I came across Partials by accident, while playing around on my Nook, and I think it was one of the best accidents to ever happen to me: the paragon of serendipity. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time, and a wonderful beginning to a very unique series. Dan Wells does something so new and different with Partials, that it's unexpectedly refreshing, from the exciting plot to the fantastic characters. If you want a more detailed reason as to why I love the Partials Sequence, I reviewed the first book a few months back (here), so be sure to check that out!

Amrutha's Pick
City of Bones - Cassandra Clare
Last year, my lovely book blog friends pushed me to read The Mortal Instruments. I had seen the books before and read some spoilers that I wrote off as awkward. However, as soon as I opened up the first book and got to know Jace and Clary and Simon and Alec and Isabelle and my favorite, Magnus, I fell in love with the characters and the plot. Cassandra Clare has a way of making me feel so much for the characters while providing an interesting fantasy plot with fabulous twists of romance.


Marlon's Pick
Legend - Marie Lu
Legend is . . .  wait for it (here it comes), Legend (wait for it again) dary. Marie Lu spins a beautiful, rugged dystopian world and who doesn't love a good dystopian novel? A good dystopian novel that doesn't read like some knock-off of the hunger games like so many do. A good dystopian novel that is highly realistic and jeeze, just all of the feels will be had!

  1. I wish it had been possible for you to give away the first book in each series. I am having a ridiculously hard time picking just one. I don't know which I'll select. I'm thinking maybe Partials, if it's available in print, since I've never heard of it at all. Maybe it's more fantasy or something and less romance. That would be a refreshing change.
