    As for my favorite book of all time, there is no competition, it is definitely city of bones, because i simply adore it, i fell in love with the characters as well as the plot and never looked back, i love the whole shadow hunter thing, the chemistry Clary and jace have, all of it!

    not sure btw if my entries are right lol

  4. My Favorite Book Of All Time Is Actually Two Different Books. I Couldn't Pick Between Them Because They Are To Awesome Books. They Are Pride And Prejudice By Jane Austen And Gone With The Wind By Margaret Mitchell. They Are Two Fantastic Books Writen By Two Amazing Writers.

  15. Yes, I would love to win a copy of Beautiful Darkness! I am following you on Twitter (@crescentfeather). My favorite book would have to be The Stranger, simply because it was the one that got me started in this genre. Thanks for your contest!

  16. +1 I follow you on Twitter and I tweeted :

    +1 I have so many favourite books,it'd be unfair to name just one.But just off the top of my head,all 5 books in the Vampire Academy series.

  17. I am following your twitter (@cc9309) and tweeted.

    Also, my favourite book of all time would have to be "If I Stay"- it has a sincere and unique take on the whole "car crash and death" thing, and it really presses on an issue that is really quite important-- "If all those I love have died, should I go, or should I stay?" Also, the characters are likeable, the writing is simply beautiful.

  25. Hi,
    Leaving a comment here since i don't have twitter.

    My favorite book(s) of all time has to be the Harry Potter series. I just can't pick one. I love all of them equally. I love how they transport you into a magical world and how you can read them over and over again and not get bored.


  26. I want Beautiful Darkness! I am following you on twitter @me_chelle0731 My favorite book of all time is a tie between The Magicians Nephew or The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe from the Chronicles of Narnia!

    Good Luck Everyone!!

  28. Oooh thanks for the awesome giveaway ! Haha I don't have a favorite book of all time. It's tooo hard for me ! But I'll choose the one that I really love right now. I love the Last Song by Nicholas Sparks. And although it's not paranormal fantasy or something like that, it touched my heart unlike any other book. It was reality put with fiction and it made me cry my eyes out !

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  34. ^ Sorry about that comment, forgot my contact email!

    I followed you on Twitter -

    Tweeted it TWICE! :D

    My favorite book of all time... Probably CITY OF GLASS by Cassandra Clare. Of course, I love CITY OF BONES and CITY OF ASHES but CoE is my absolute favorite, of all time. The way Cassie brings everything together and answers all your questions (and hopes, lol :-)), and the way she writes, left me breathless. I literally read it in one seven hour sitting. And I recently reread it and my love for TMI and Cassandra has grown.

    Sooo, would that be 4 entries? My math skills are not so sharp but I'm positive that is the right answer, bahahha. :)))

    Thank you for this AWESOME contest!

  35. My favorite book of all time has to be 1984 by Orwell. LOVED IT! By twitter account is @barbrafl
