TGIF #17 - Giving Thanks

Friday, November 18, 2011 with 11 comments

TGIF is hosted by Ginger at GReads!  In this weekly feature, Ginger poses a question to her followers and then asks everyone to link up at the end of the post, sharing their responses.

This Friday's Question:

Giving Thanks: Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?

Well, first off, I have to give proper thanks to the book gods over at HarperTeen/Pitch Dark Books, since I won seven -- yes, seven -- ARCs/books from their Dark Days of Supernatural promotion earlier this year, including one of my favorite books of this year (and possibly ever), Divergent by Veronica Roth. I'm actually doing a re-read of this book right now, just because I missed it so. :)
Sweet Venom (Medusa Girls #1)

And then, of course, I have to thank the ladies at Good Choice Reading for all of the ARC tours they let me be a part of this year:  Fury by Elizabeth Miles, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins, and Legend by Marie Lu.  I love that those ladies are so willing to share their good fortune and spread the word about such awesome books in the process.  I'd also like to thank Damaris over at GCR for sending me her extra copy of Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs.

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)And last, but definitely not least, I'd like to thank the bestest book soulmate ever, Michele at A Belle's Tales, for lending me her copy of Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.  I'm not so much thankful for the book as I am for the friendship it represents.  Michele has easily become my most favorite thing about book blogging, and I can't imagine what life would be like having never made her acquaintance.  I have a feeling this is only the beginning to a beautiful friendship, a lot (and I mean A LOT) of book swapping, and most importantly, endless fictional crushes.  (Chele also sent me some other goodies, but I don't have pictures of those yet.  Plus, I don't want to make you jealous. :P)

I also want to say thanks to all of my readers and fellow book lovers.  You guys make my heart happy!  :)


  1. I love the Beautiful Creatures series, and that's awesome that you've made such a great blogging friend!

  6. Wow - so many awesome books and such a great community.

  7. How are you so fabulous?? And what did I ever do to get lucky enough to have a you? If I am a great book soulmate, it is only because I am learning how to be one from YOU. You make my heart happy, and this post makes my cup runneth over! :D Heart you SO much, most awesome book soulmate ever! xoxoxo
