      Jess, it makes me really, really sad when people say things like “finally” in regards to international giveaways. We give away a lot of books funded out of my own pocket and there is always at least one giveaway open to our international readers every month. I know you don’t mean to lay a guilt trip on me, but this isn’t the first such comment I’ve seen, and I’d just like to ask that you give some consideration to the hundreds of dollars I spend already. I host these contests because I want to share my books with you guys, and I do the best I can to be as inclusive as possible.

      Jess, it makes me really, really sad when people say things like “finally” in regards to international giveaways. We give away a lot of books funded out of my own pocket and there is always at least one giveaway open to our international readers every month–there used to be more, before shipping costs got so high. I know you probably didn’t mean to lay a guilt trip on me, but this isn’t the first such comment I’ve seen, and I’d just like to ask that you give some consideration to amount of time and money that goes into this. I host these contests because I want to share my books with you guys, and I do the best I can to be as inclusive as possible.

      SPLINTERED, please. I CANNOT RESIST reading about Wonderland through the eyes of a teenager who has apparently got a couple of handsome boys by her side… It is about as enticing as that deliciously green, wild cover and that’s already without the healthy dollop of rave reviews.
      Many of the current classic-to-YA adaptations feature classics I’ve never read (I’m always compelled to read the classic before the adaptation) so this will be a pleasant change.
      I really like ALICE IN WONDERLAND and despite it being completely random and weird, I was so fascinated by everything. It somehow makes sense.
      Wonderland’s a vast world, very unexplored in the book and I’m mega curious to see what A.G. Howard did with it.
      If possible, I’d also like FIREBRAND because it seems like a gritty, dark fantasy and I never even knew it existed. BRUISED sounds like a book that could answer a lot of questions for me, as it seems to deal with issues and themes that kind of haunt my life.

    4. Swept Away By Books

      I’m really looking forward to reading Spellcaster, Pivot Point or Murmurings. All of them have some really great plots it sounds like and very original for a few! Super excited about this!

    5. Jo DM

      I would really like to read Splintered, the cover is gorgeous and I really like the story of Alice in Wonderland, so dark and strange :D
      Thank you for the giveaway! <3 I've never won anything but bloggers that do giveaways for their followers are the best!

    6. Raquel Muniz

      This a unique giveaway. Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey sounds like an interesting read. I love a mystery set in Victorian England. And the secret society is a great addition.

    7. Kath S.

      Thanks for the giveaway :D

      I really want to read Pivot Point by Kacie West, I’ve heard a lot of good thing about it (and I’ve read good reviews) and I need to read it.

      Regards :D

    8. Briana

      I’ve been wanting to read the Assassin’s Curse for a while – I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. Plus, I kind of love the cover.

    9. Fry

      Really excited for The Assassin’s Curse and Firebrand. But, honestly, free books are never NOT exciting.

    10. Jessa Russo (Stadtler)

      I think I’d be most excited for SPLINTERED. That has been on my TBR forever! The premise sounds fantastic and I have heard wonderful things!! Thank you for this great giveaway, Wendy!

    11. Sel

      I’m really excited to read Legacy of the Clockwork Key!

      I’ve always been fascinated with Steampunk (gears and guns in corsets and pretty dresses) since I love the Victorian Era to bits and a little punk and feistiness never hurt ;) Everything about LEGACY in the blurb screams “awesome-sauce!” and I would love love love to know more about the Amusementists and the crazy mind-blowing gadgets they come up with.

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    12. Grace Barber

      All the books look AMAZING but I think I would probably go for The Murmurings. I’m really excited for it as it sounds really creepy. Thanks for the giveaway!

    13. Grace Barber

    14. Julianna Helms

      I don’t know if my other comment worked since I was logged out of my account, so I’ll comment again just in case (and sorry if you already got my original comment):

      I’m most excited for FIREBRAND, mostly because I read most of the other books already (SPLINTERED = SO. GOOD.). Thank you SO incredibly much for this generous giveaway!

    15. Julianna Helms

      Thanks so much for the giveaway! I think I’m most excited for FIREBRAND since I’ve read most of the other ones already (SPLINTERED = SO. GOOD.). ^.^

    17. veRONIca

      Honestly I’d be happy with any of them. I love discovering new authors and genres I never thought to try.

      I have heard a lot about Unremembered and it’s definitely been on my TBR for awhile, so if I had to choose one that would be it : )

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    18. Ava

      I’m excited to read Splintered! I’ve heard great things about it and I think the premise is so interesting…it’s definitely a title I want to read–hopefully sooner rather than later!

    20. Tina Kohrman

      I would love to read either Splintered because I have heard wonderful things about this book or Bruised because this sounds like an interesting read or the murmurings because I like books of this nature. Thank you for the generous giveaway and have a wonderful day!!

    21. Book Worm Girls

      I’m most excited for Splintered because it wasn’t about Alice in the Wonderland, the main character was the great granddaughter of Alice. I heard a lot of positive review about this book and the cover was gorgeous. So, I just want to give it a try. Thank you so much for the giveaway!! =)

    22. Book Worm Girls

      I’m most excited for Splintered. This is a debut novel and it was not a retelling of Alice in Wonderland. This book main character was a great, great granddaughter of Alice and I heard positive review about the book and the cover was gorgeous. So, I want to give a try on this book. Thank yo so much for the giveaway!! =)

    23. ramydul

      Splintered and Pivot Point are two books that I just adore.However,no matter how many giveaways I entered,I never won these books.Yes,Rafflecopter was cruel.Anyway,now there are more chances.I like that you will pick a winner who commented too.May the odds be ever in my favor!Thank you!

    24. Dani

      i really want to read Unremembered.The all concept behind this book seems so interesting. I never reaaly like a sorf-of mystery, sci-fi book before. I want to know what it’s about.

      Thanks for the giveaway

    25. Deborah Russo

      I would probably choose Pivot Point. I’m a sucker for love stories, and though I’m not the hugest fan of love triangles, I’m very intrigued by the paranormal part of the book ;) Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    26. Cali Willette

      Thanks for the giveaway! All those books sound amazing. I am looking forward to Splintered because I love Alice in Wonderland. I have an old Alice in Wonderland book from the 30’s. :)
      -Cali W.

    27. kai (amaterasu)

      I heard The Murmurings is an awesome read, so I am definitely excited for that. Plus the cover is a little bit creepy, and that also got me curious to know what the book is really about. Thanks for the giveaway!

    28. iLuvReadingTooMuch

      ALL of them are on my wishlist! I’ve already read Splintered and The Murmurings, and I LOVED THEM BOTH SO MUCH!! Thanks for the amazing giveaway! :D

      I think all the books on this list look fantastic, and truthfully, I’d be thankful for just one of them. I’ve read the entire teen section at my local library (no joke) and it has none of these books. My house has three bookshelves, each containing around 100 books, and the books in this list are nowhere to be found. I just need something new to read. Which is why I’d love Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood, Pivot Point, The Assassin’s Curse, and Bruised. However, they all look amazing and whoever wins these books, please, be thankful. Books really are amazing and they truly can affect someone, deeply and irrevocably.

    30. Jessica Noreault

      I would LOVE Assassin’s Curse and Legacy of the Clockwork Key. I have been eyeing them for awhile, and want them both quite bad.

    31. KikiD

      I’m most curious about Pivot Point. The summary sounded interesting and different. I’ve also read Splintered already, and it was so awesome! I loved how it was alot different from Alice in Wonderland!

    32. Tiffany H

      I’m quite excited for a handful of them from all the rave blogger reviews (Pivot Point, Unremembered, Bruised, Splintered) but I would chose The Assassins’ Curse because PIRATES AND CURSES OH MY!

    33. Haraiah

      I was super excited to read Pivot Point and Splintered. And since I was super excited to read them, I did at the very first opportunity I got. I absolutely loved Pivot Point and I’m currently reading Splintered. I am also extremely excited for Unremembered. I was pining for it since last year but still haven’t got a copy – the blurb is really promising and it’s sci-fi so what’s not to like? Also Spellcaster. I haven’t read any of Claudia Gray’s books but this one definitely caught my attention – I’m a big fan of witches! And Assassin’s Curse. The word “assassin” is enough :)

      Haraiah @ Random Things In Action

    34. Erleen Alvarez

      I’m excited to read Unremembered and The Murmurings because they’re blurbs already gave me chills, how much more if I read them, right?. I’m really into horror and mysteries so those two really got my attention right from the beginning.

      Thank you for giving me the chance to have those books! :)

    35. Michelle Sedeño

      I most excited to Splintered and Pivot Point. But I’m not picking them (or The Assassin’s Curse) because I’ve read them. And if I win, I’d like to ask for your recommendation because I believe in your taste. ;)

    36. lisa burton

      I would love the chance to win pivot point and splintered, heard so many good things already! thanks for the chance! xx

    37. Bekka @ Pretty Deadly Reviews

      I’m most excited about The Murmurings. I was drawn to it months ago, when I saw the cover reveal, and I KNEW I had to have it. I review mostly dark YA on my blog, and my favorite books to read are horror and thrillers.

    38. Kaede

      I would say that SPLINTERED and SPELLCASTER won my heart and therefore takes the award for most wanted book. but since I’ve read one and own the other, we’re going to pretend I never said anything…

      Instead, I’m going to go for PIVOT POINT – because it has a pretty cover and I’ve heard really good things. (And I am absolutely shallow and have no regards for the wise advice I would do well to follow. NO JUDGING BOOKS BY THEIR COVERS. NO.) But I MEAN C’MON, they just don’t, they just CAN’T, give bad books pretty covers. LOGIC DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! <3

    39. Megan K.

      To be honest, I want to read all the books! I’ve read PIVOT POINT and really loved it, but I think I’d be most excited to read UNREMEMBERED or SPLINTERED. :) They both sound awesome, and have been receiving loads of great reviews!

      Thanks for this awesome giveaway, y’all. :)

    40. Megan Dilley

      As a teacher, I am always looking for books to add to my classroom. I am running a reading workshop and working hard to find books that will really grab the interest of my 8th graders. I am excited about Unremembered because the mystery and the hint of special abilities seems enticing. I also think the shipwrech is a good premise. Firebrand has an awesome cover, which I know shouldn’t be important. But it also seems to be one of the only books with a male protagonist. The Murmurings seems like just the right mix between creepy and mystery. I think the kids will love it. And Pivot Point has me intrigued. The glimpses of the future are right up my alley and will challenge some of my higher achieving students (it is hard to find books that are appropriate for their age, but challenge their reading level).

    41. xDarithz

      I’m most excited about Pivot Point by Kasie West.From the synopsis, I assume it’s a contemporary/paranormal read because it focuses on a girl who’s a Searcher–someone who can see into the future while also having to decide whether she wants to live with her father outside the paranormal world or with her mother inside it. There’s also a murder mystery, so I am INTRGUED! I’d be stoked to win a copy. :D

    42. wajiha1993

      I really want to read Pivot Point! I like the cover.. I heard lots of good things about it and many bloggers have loved it!

    43. Veronika

      Yay! So many great books with beautiful covers! I haven’t read any of the books yet except Splintered, so I’m excited to read all of them! Thank you for the chance to win!

    44. Precious

      I’m most excited to read Pivot Point. I’ve been waiting for this book for months! :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    45. Sarahbotbonkers

      I would love to read either Pivot Point or Assassin’s Curse. I’ve heard so many good things about those two. I would love to read them for myself.

      Thank you for the fantastic giveaway! :)

    46. Sarahbotbonkers

      I would love to read either Pivot Point or Assassin’s Curse. I’ve heard good things about those 2 books and I’d love to read them for myself.

      Thanks for the fantastic giveaway! :D

    47. Fear Street

      I would love to read The Murmurings because it sounds incredibly creepy and that’s my kind of book :)

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    49. Mighty Knitting Chick

      I’ve been intrigued by the covers of both Unremembered and Splintered since I first saw them. They’re both on my “to read” list on Goodreads. I’ve been entering each giveaway that features them, but so far, I haven’t won either (yet).

    50. Alexju

      I’m most excited for Pivot Point and The Legacy of the Clockwork Key! They both sound so good! I love the premise behind Pivot Point. Thank you for this awesome giveaway!

    51. Ralu

      Unremembered looks like a great read! I automatically fell in love with the cover, and the story seems to be full of mistery and suspense. I guess the subject has been used in books many times, but for me, it would be the first time to read something like this. Thanks for the giveaway!

    52. Cee L

      I am most excited to read Pivot Point and The Murmurings! The plot is intriguing to me.

      Thank you for the giveaway!

    53. Rachel Edmundson

      What an incredible giveaway! I think it is really considerate for you to actually go through and read all of the comments and choose a winner from there as well. The Rafflecopter Gods rarely shine down on me from above. :) I enter on average 100 giveaways per day, and those are just the blogs I follow. Sometimes more. I have won 1 book and that was exciting though! I love the opportunity to enter giveaways because (and I am embarrassed to say this) I rarely can afford books. Shortly after my daughter was born (she is 4 now) I was almost paralyzed from a spinal problem, completely randomly. Never been in an accident or injured in sports or anything. Just born with a bad spine. Was about 12 hours from being paralyzed without an emergency spinal fusion. I have had 3 more spinal fusions (if you don’t know what they are, look them up, it’s excruciating and the pain never goes away, now I am riddled with nerve damage all through my back, down my sides, and down my right leg) and I will probably have most of my spine fused by the end of my life. I am only 27. And now, with a debilitating back problem, I am raising a young child by myself. She was 1 when this started.

      Anyway, enough of the sob story, but my point is I can’t work and I don’t have much money to buy books but they are my only escape from my life so I LOVE to read. And YA books really take me to a special place. :) So anyway, thanks for considering me and I LOVE your blog design and I love your reviews on Goodreads even more!

      The books I am most interested in are Unremembered because I love books about people who have to figure out who they are. I also really love Pivot Point. I love the idea of an alternate reality. And of course Splintered, because who doesn’t want to read Splintered? Just looking at the cover makes me happy :) Anyway, I would be happy to win anything at all! Thanks again for this giveaway!

    54. Joana Silva

      Great giveaway. I’m curious about most of the books, but specially Splintered, because of all the goods things I heard about it.

    55. Francine Soleil

      I want Splintered by A.G. Howard. I simply adore the cover and I love how it’s based on Alice in Wonderland. I love fairy tale retellings or books associated with the familiar stories we know and grew up with. I love how authors bring in something new to the old. I’ve been craving for this book even before it was released. I just haven’t earned enough to buy it yet.

    56. Kirsten!

      Splintered. Honestly, I have no idea why I haven’t bought/read it yet. I love dark fantasy and Alice in Wonderland, and this looks right up my alley.

    57. Amie

      I’m most excited for Splintered by A.G. Howard. Before I even knew what the story was about, the cover had drew me in by its colorful. Then when I knew the story is somehow fairy tale retelling of Alice, that’s it I need to read the book. =D

    58. Amie

      I am most excited about Splintered by A.G. Howard. First of all, even before I knew what the story was about, I was drawn in by the colorful cover. Then when I knew the story is somehow fairy tale retelling, that’s it I want to read the book now. =)

    59. Tammy Sparks

      I’ve already read Bruised and Splintered, and they were SOOOO amazing. I guess I’d have to say I’m most excited about Pivot Point, because I’ve read some amazing reviews from other bloggers. Really, all your choices look good! Thanks for a super fun giveaway:)

    60. ohdamnbooks

      I want to read Unremembered. Just the title alone captured my attention since memories are so precious to us.

    61. Jude

      Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
      Pivot Point has my interest the most, and I’ve heard good things about it. Several of the others sound good, too, though, and some of those covers are so pretty (Assassin’s Curse in particular)!

      Thanks again!
      :) Jude

    62. Christine P

      What a great idea for a giveaway! Love that you’re giving people multiple ways to win, and not just one by rafflecopter. I never seem to have luck with these 1/1346547658 chance of winning giveaways. Here’s hoping my typing and convincing skills do a little magic :)

      I can’t wait to read Pivot Point. Even though Addie has the awesome, but I imagine burdensome, ability to see future outcomes, everyone can relate to having to choose what you want to do with your life. Every choice you make will ultimately lead to a certain life change, big or small. Knowing what these changes will be won’t make choosing the right path any easier. In life, it’s all about going with your gut and being okay with what the future holds. This novel sounds like a fantastic read that can be easily related to anyone. It also sounds like it’ll end up having a great moral lesson, that can be learned from. A paranormal/supernatural/science fiction novel like this is my absolute favorite kind of book to read. With relatable characters, it makes it even better!

    63. Claire Kim

      I really, really, desperately want to read The Assassin’s Curse. The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and I’ve (sadly) always been a HUGE sucker for assassins and pirates and other swashbuckling finery. :D

      Thank you for the giveaway!

    64. Nikki Vanderhoof

      I’m really excited for Splintered and The Murmurings! I’ve had Splintered on my to read shelf for quite some time as I’ve always loved the Alice in Wonderland type stories. The Murmurings sounds like it may have some creep factor to it which I love! I hadn’t come across it before so I went and read the synopsis after seeing your post and immediately added it to my to read list!

    65. Shiela

      This is such an awesome giveaway. And those are all awesome books, especially Splintered, I’ve been eyeing that book for quite a while now. :)

    66. Kassidy Voinche

      Fantastic giveaway!! I’m most excited to read Pivot Point and Unremembered because I have heard so so many good things about them!! They sound wonderful, and I cannot wait to get my hands on them!

    67. Tanja - Tanychy

      All books from the list sound great but I’m most excited for The Assassin’s Curse. I’ve heard only great things about it and it sounds like something different. I’m still waiting on your review for it though. :) Thanks for the giveaway and for making it INT :)

    68. Bee Caluya

      Wow. Jane Austen goes to Hollywood looks interesting! I love Young Adult novels. Thank you for this generous giveaway! :)

    69. Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews

      Pivot Point! I’ve heard a lot about it and I really want to check it out, the whole concept of being able to see the various possibilities of the future is intriguing. Thanks so much for the awesome giveaway :D

    70. Anna

      I think I’d choose either Splintered or Unremembered. I have them both on my TBR list and I love,love, LOVE the cover of Splintered *cover geek* and I have heard lots of nice words about the story. I live in Sweden and a lot of swedish book reviewers has reviewed it.

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    71. Alison

      Yayy! Thank you for the giveaway! And we get to pick the book we want!

      :) I’d probably pick Pivot Point just because I like paranormal romance…and Addison reading the future is paranormal and the two guys are romance! <3 And in your review, you said that there were cute romance moments! But then you only gave it 3.5 stars and said that you didn't really fall in love with either guy. :( And I NEED to fall in love with guys in books.

      So I think I’d choose Assassin’s Curse! Or maybe Legacy of the Clockwork Keeper! Ughh, so many good books! The Assassin’s curse has an assassin which always makes books interesting, and I’m really curious about what the “nasty curse” is. But then Legacy of the Clockwork Key is set in Victorian London, which I LOVE, and has a secret elite society!

      And lastly, I like Unremembered just because I like books with a main character who has memory loss and must try to piece together their past. And that boy who says they were in love just completes the story. ROMANCE! :)

      Sooo… I’m not really sure which books I’d pick. So many good books! Maybe I’ll roll a dice or flip some coins…. ;)

    74. jen7waters

      Splintered by A.G.Howard! Because I heard it’s a retelling of Alice in Wonder Land, and I love retellings of classics. :D

      Thank you. :3

      (I’m Carla Costa on the rafflecopter)

    75. Grace

      I think probably Pivot Point. I’ve heard so many great things about it already (I mean who wouldn’t love to be able to see into the future!) Thanks for the awesome giveaway, it’s an amazing selection of books.

    76. Grace

    77. deasuluna

      I’m most excited for Pivot Point, it puts together to of my favorite genres from YA. Contemporary and Paranormal in what I have read from reviews is a great new concept and amazing story! Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway!

      I’ve read about 6 five star reviews for Pivot Point, so I’m excited about that. Also Splintered, because Alice in Wonderland, and The Assassin’s Curse.

    79. Evette Torres

      I’m most excited for Splintered. To be honest I’m a fan of anything Alice in Wonderland and when I heard that this book’s main character is a descendant of hers I thought I just have to read this book. Thanks for the giveaway! :D

    80. julie tearjerky

      Aaarrggghhh!! SPLINTERED!! I’ve been craving Splintered ever since it came out! I love love the cover, so pretty! And I haven’t read Fantasy for so long so it’s perfect! ^__^

    81. Pedacinho Literário

      I don’t think I can choose only one! But I’ve read other books from Claudia Gray and that could be one of my favourites to read, from the bunch. Plus Splintered, that has such a cool cover!

    82. Amanda

      I am the most excited about Legacy of the Clockwork Key. It has so many elements that interest me. A secret society set in Victorian London. It’s a YA novel which I’ve been reading a lot lately. And it has some romance. Sounds really good!

    83. starryeyedjen

      What a generous giveaway! I’m not entering because I have a massive amount of unread books on my shelves as it is, but I just wanted you to know that your generosity is unrivaled and very much appreciated. :)

    84. Rain Jeys

      Oh my god what an awesome selection!

      I really want to read Legacy of the Clockwork Key. I need some Victorian London magic users. Badly. I’m suffering from Gemma Doyle Withdrawl.

    85. Sam M.

      Hello!
      This is an amazing giveaway!
      I would like Splintered, because I’ve read the review on goodread and it look pretty amazing! Besides i love Alice and wonderland (:

    86. Zombie runner

      I really want to read Splintered and the Assassin’s Curse. I really enjoy dark fairy tales and fantasy stories, so both books are on my list of need-to-read. Soooo, pick me pretty pretty please???

    87. A.H. MacKenna

      The Spellcaster’s murmurings splintered into the Firebrand like a bruise. It was the Assassin’s Curse — she was now doomed to be unremembered, and the legacy of the clockwork key would go down with her, lost in this pivot point just as Jane Austen had been back in Hollywood.

      (In other words, I’d love to read any of them! Thanks for this giveaway, it’s very generous of you all!)

    88. Kbaby81

      Awesome Giveaway! I’d really love to read all of them. I’m a sucker for books. I read some reviews for each one, and although some were 1 and 2 stars, I’d still like to read them. I’d like to get a feel of them for myself. My first pick would be Un-Remember.

    89. Luisa Freiheit

      I’m super excited to read Pivot Point ’cause I’ve been reading lots of great reviews about it. Besides, my favorite bloggers said the book is awesome!

      I would love to read Splintered, especially because I’ve always loved children’s fantasy worlds like Wonderland (and Neverland too!). It sounds like the protagonist will be undoing all the things that Alice did in Wonderland. I really can’t wait.

    92. adnamay

      This is a wonderful contest! There are some great options to read. I hope I get to pick a few out. ;)

    93. innocencewalker

      I’ve been dying to read Splintered and Pivot Point since they came out but I haven’t been able to get my hands on them yet. Splintered sounds dark and creepy and I’m always in the mood for something that gives me otherworldly shivers and haunts me at night. Pivot Point sounds interesting and I want to see how it was written, I can’t imagine how the character’s sight it portrayed and I’m very curious to see how it all plays out.

    94. Crystal F

      Wow! What an amazing giveaway :D I’d choose Pivot Point or Splintered because I’ve read some amazing reviews about both. Splintered’s cover is gorgeous!

    95. Credoroza

      Generous giveaways are my favorite giveaways as well as the entries participation. very nice ladies with this great idea!

    96. jarkin33

      I think I’m most excited for the Assassin’s Curse! I hadn’t had it on my to read list until I clicked on it here and now I can’t wait to get my hands on it!

      Thank you for the incredible giveaway opportunity!

      I’m super excited to read Pivot Point since the moment I saw its gorgeous cover. And ’cause all my friends been talking on and on about how awesome this book is.
      Also, The Assassin’s Curse ’cause both plot and characters sound really original and let’s face it, who doesn’t like reading about pirates. And assassins! And have I mentioned, pirates! :) Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    99. Amber Hsu

      It’s so hard to pick, with so many great books I’ve heard so much about…

      But I think the book that I’m most excited to read would be Splintered by AG Howards~ Alice in wonderland has always been one of my favorite childhood stories… Of the reviews I’ve read, this seemed to be a very well-liked book and I’m really curious on how the author incorporated her dark twist into it~~~

      Thanks so much for the giveaway! :D

    100. Aa'Ishah

      I’d love to read Splintered, because I absolutely love Alice in Wonderland retellings. (Also the Mad Hatter is just an awesome character.) The fact that it’s something a little darker makes it even better. The reviews for it have only been gushing, and I’ve been looking forward to it for ages!

      After that, it would be The Assassin’s Curse. Pirates? Assassins? Together? Hell yes.

      Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway, and for making it international! :)

    101. Alya Azman

      I would love to read Unremembered! It has such an interesting story line and I’ve heard good things about it. Amazing giveaway and love the fact that it’s international!

    102. Chelsea

      I have heard a lot about Pivot Point and would really like to read this book. This is a great giveaway! You guys are awesome.

    103. Ina M.

      Many thanks for the great giveaway! I think it would be difficult for me to choose between Splintered, a book I’ve read both raving and damning reviews of and am really curious about, and Bruised. I’m interested in Bruised because I practice jujutsu and love everything about the mind-set you acquire together with the fighting skills when you practice any of the Asian martial arts. Also, before reading its blurb I hadn’t come across any books featuring martial arts so prominently, so it caught my attention immediately. (If anyone can recommend any, by the way, I’d be more than happy to check them out!) It’s very hard to imagine a black belt freezing; we get it drilled in our heads all the time never to stop, even if we mess the technique up, so I’d love to see how the author and the main character dealt with that.

    104. Lyn Kaye

      I am going to have to go with Pivot Point if I win. That stack looks so good! This is awesome that you’re opening it up to let people decide!

    105. Sunny Duvall

      First of all, I must say THANK YOU for this amazing giveaway because really, my mother (and father since no one seems to ever mention them) raised me right.

      Secondly, I would pick:

      Unremembered – because I adore Jessica Brody
      The Assassin’s Curse – because the plot sounds kick-butt
      Splintered – because I have been salivating over it for the longest time.

      Although it seems as if everyone is picking those. So the fourth pick would be Bruised because my sister Shelver loved that one (and she’s not a fan of that genre usually). So I guess I just made my case as well? [insert sob story here] But obviously, I LOVE books otherwise I wouldn’t be entering.

      Have a very happy month, Wendy :) And thank you publishers!

    106. Laiool AlFelchawi

      I’m really into re-telling books at the moment so I’m mostly interested in Splintered :) and thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway.

    107. Jessica Lewenda

      Oh gosh, it’s so hard to choose from all these wonderful books, but I think I’d have to go for either Firebrand or The Assassin’s Curse.
      Thanks for finally including us international folks in a giveaway. :)

    108. Jaime Lester

      First of all, thank you for the amazing giveaway! I think I am most excited about Pivot Point. I have heard the most amazing things about it, and I would like to be part of the goodness!

    109. lovealeeex

      I’m excited to read Pivot Point because I really like the concept of the book. It really intrigues me how complex the choices Addison has to make, how complex her life is. I love the whole the idea where one future, she has one buy who understands her. And another life, she has a the hottest guy in the school. It just seems interesting to read, to see how this all comes down in the end. Thanks for hosting this giveaway<3

    110. booksthatstartwitha

      Thanks for this chance to win some amazing books – The Murmurings is very high on my TBR list! It looks so amazing and creepy. Fingers and toes crossed for this!

    112. Erika

      I’m most excited to read Pivot Point. I’ve read all positive reviews about this book and am just really intrigued by its unique story. Thanks for the chance to win!

    113. Unknown

      I was just giving the books a second look through, ahhh so many amazing choices. I’m most definitely sharing this giveaway with my followers!!

    114. Unknown

      This looks like such an amazing giveaway, thank you for hosting it. So many of these books are on my to-read list but the books that I am most looking forward to reading are Unremembered and Spellcaster.

    115. Bree Powell

      Whelp, I’ve gotten myself stuck deep in my love for reading again~<3 I'm always fishing around for something to occupy myself with and I find that just about any book will do.

      I forced myself not to read any of the reviews or anything about any one of these books. I seriously don’t want any bias. I’d be happy with anything, and I’ll read just about anything! I’m excited for these in general! I refuse to pick just one~

    116. Unknown

      This is such a fantastic book giveaway! I’m looking forward to reading so many of these books but I’m most looking forward to Spellcaster & Unremembered.

    117. Cassi Haggard

      My mailbox is desperately and sadly empty since I moved to Louisville. Still I check it everyday like the little nerd I am, always hopefully, always disappointed.

      I want any book (except Splintered) because BOOKS.

    118. Harlee James

      This is such an awesome giveaway! I love this blog so much. (& the theme is gorgeous, by the way.)

      I really can’t wait to read Pivot Point! I’ve heard great things about it and it just has such a unique premise – not just the same concept with different characters, which seems to be so common lately.

      Also, I’d love to get my hands on Unremembered. It just sounds like a book full of suspense and I like really having to THINK about a story and what is going on in it.

      Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

      What an amazing, amazing giveaway, Wendy, and the Midnight Garden team! You guys are AWESOME.

      This giveaway, I can’t even. I REALLY want UNREMEMBERED. I’ve read some reviews that have made it sound just so, so good, with a LOT of elements to books that I like/have liked in the past. So it’s the one that made me go “YES PLEASE” and know I had to enter. I’d also love to get my hands on SPELLCASTER because witches? YES. Yes. I am so there.

      Thanks again for this awesome giveaway!

    120. Leah Woods

    121. Janita @ Book, Interrupted

      Wow, amazing (and popular) giveaway. I’m excited for so many of these. The Murmurings, because it sounds creepy, Pivot Point because I’ve read so many awesome reviews, and Unremembered, because I love action-y books first and foremost. Thanks for doing this awesome giveaway!

    122. Sarah Kalaitzidis

      I’m most excited to read pivot Point because I’ve been hearing so much things about this book I would love to read it! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    123. Mel@Thedailyprophecy

      I can’t wait to read the assassin’s curse, since the concept of an Pirate princess sounds great. I’d also love to read Pivot Point, because everybody is so raving about it. And the idea of picking between two alternating futures is fascinating.

      Mel@thedailyprophecy.

    124. Ning

      Omg thanks you guys are the best!! Below are my three:

      Splintered – the cover is so creepy and it just sounds so interesting!
      Firebrand – I love any sort of fantasy and really don’t read enough, so it’d be awesome if I get a chance to read this!
      Pivot Point – love any kind of paranormal powers! I would love for a chance to read this!

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    125. ReaderandDreamer

      Splintered by A.G. Howard

      I’ve been hearing a lot of positive feed backs of the book and also my friend advised me to read because she knows that i will love it. She’s right, as soon as i read the summary of the book i felt the urge to read it! It’s so compelling, i can’t wait to read it. I really hope i would win. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!! :)

    126. ReaderandDreamer

      Splintered by A.G. Howard.

      I’ve been hearing a lot of positive feed backs from the book and my friend also advised me to read it because she said it’s the type of book i will love reading and she’s right. I’ve read the summary and felt the urge to read it. It’s so compelling, i can’t wait to read it.

    127. Michelle Morris

      I am a bibliophile. Really. I swear, every time I feed my addiction, it gets worse and worse (but I love it).

      It’s also perfect because all my closest friends are book junkies too, so we just sit and rant/rave about books together (emphasis on the RANT part. I’m not part of how many books I’ve thrown across the room).

      I would LOVE to win Spellcaster. I’ve been obsessed with witches since Hocus Pocus scared the bejesus out of me when I was younger.

      I would also really like to read Unremembered. I feel a special connection to this book after writing a flash fiction about it.

      Thank you so much for the giveaway!!

    128. Mishma Nixon

      I am excited to read Unremembered and Spellcaster.Unremembered because it sounds really interesting and the reviews so far are promising.And Spellcaster because I love Claudia Gray.
      Thanks you so much for the giveaway.

    129. Sara Abd

      OMG so many great books!!! I am really excited for Pivot Point because i have seen a couple of reviews on it and it sounds amazing! I mean it’s like two stories in one and the main character can see her future!

    130. Jasmine

      I’m dying to read both Bruised and Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood, and so many of the others I haven’t heard of but sound so interesting, especially Splintered (because I adore everything Alice) and Unremembered (because just the synopsis has me super intrigued). Thanks so much for this great giveaway!

    131. Brandon Scott

      I love this blog, and the information it provides about all thing book related in every post. Out of this bunch of books I’m most excited about reading Pivot Point. It seems very intriguing, and I’ve heard lots of great things about it. If not Pivot Point, however, I would like Unremembered, I haven’t really heard that much about it, but I was captivated by the synopsis. I HOPE I WIN! :D

    132. Go Flash Go - Read, Rinse, Repeat

      Fab book choices – thank you! I’m most excited about Bruised (despite Wendy’s so-so review.) Part of this is due to process of elimination. I’ve read Splintered, I’m reading Pivot Point, I’ve got Spellcaster and Murmurings, and I’ll have Unremembered soon. But Bruised also appeals to me because the synopsis reminds me somewhat of a very recent and very unpleasant experience of a family member. I’d like to see how Imogen handles her experience.

    133. Shelver506

      I wanted to run around in circles when I saw The Assassin’s Curse. NONE of the stores in my area nor my library carries it, and it sounds amazing. Assassins? Pirates? Curses? YES!

    134. Kim (YA Asylum)

      It’s so hard to pick just one. I’m dying to read Splintered — I’ve heard just amazing things about it and I love Alice and Wonderland twists. Unremembered sounds fantastic to me as well. The amnesia thing has been done before (a lot) I know, but I have a lot o faith in Brody and have — again — heard really great things about the book. But the Murmurings? I love creepy things and that looks creepy. If I had to pick just one …? I think it’d be Unremembered. Maybe. Or Splintered …

    135. Bea Tejano

      Thanks for the giveaway!:) I’m super excited to read Unremembered:) I was just taken away with the plot, it sounds so good! :D

    136. TayteH

      I can’t wait to read Unremembered. It sounds interesting, and that are not that many books out there with about lost memories. :D

    137. Anastasia Bebeshko

      Thank you for this giveaway! And I would really love to read Pivot Point by Kacie West! I had my eyes on it since way before it come out! The cover and the name are the firs things that caught my attention, Then the story line sounds like it will be a good read! and of course the good ratings! I heard that it was a worth read! SO after all of this I am really intrigued to read it!

    138. Mariya

      Thank you for the giveaway Wendy!!

      I am most excited to read The Assassin’s Curse because almost all of the reviews are read about this book are good, and plus, I love pirate-themed stories.

    139. Leannessf

      I think Splintered! I love Alice in Wonderland and am excited to see what happens in this spinoff!

      Thanks,
      Leanne

    140. Desiree

      I think that I am most excited to read Unremembered. I have read a lot of mixed feeling reviews on it, but the synopsis sounds really interesting to me! A lot of the books in that pile look/sound awesome and I haven’t read any of them yet! Thanks for the chance to win them!

    141. Youth Librarian

      Murmurings has really caught my attention. So many of the kids who come into my library doubt themselves in every way and I really think a good mystery with a girl who questions her own sanity will grab their attention!

      Plus I really want to read it too!

    142. Jamie31

      I’m going with the The Murmurings sounds cool love the dark and creepy. Thanks for the giveaway

    143. Caitlin

      Basically, I need Legacy of the Clockwork Key because it is steampunk, the author seems like an awesome person and because they changed the cover, the ARC will have a different cover from the hardcover!! These sorts of things excite me.

      Besides that I’ve yet to find it in a local bookstore. So it’s existence is just TAUNTING ME!

      And now you are taunting me. Thanks Wendy.

    144. Kaylee

      I’m most pumped up to read Pivot Point right now because the premise is just AMAZING. Thanks so much for the AH-MAZING giveaway! <333333 (:

    145. Nitzan-Katia Schwarz

      The book I’m most looking forward to from the books above would be Pivot Point. Aside for reading some amazing thins about it, I love the idea behind it! Being able to see the outcome of every decision you make? Sweet! But then, what if the outcome isn’t conclusive… Sounds so intriguing! I’m wondering how the book’s going to deal with the double futures, how it’ll work! I’m not really a fan of love-triangles (and there seem to be a big chance Pivot Point will have one), but this book intrigues me enough to look past it!

      Splintered was my most anticipated read of 2013, and I’ve already gotten and read it. It’s pretty awesome, loved the crazy world!
      As for the Assassin’s curse, another huge book I’m looking forward too, I already got it, too! It sounds pretty awesome!

      Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

    146. Twisty J

      I’ve read ‘Splintered’ and it was fantastic! I would like to read ‘The Murmurings’ because it sounds a bit creepy and dark. I have heard great things about ‘The Unremembered’, and Claudia Gray can do no wrong, so ‘Spellcaster’ is a must. Also, ‘Legacy of the Clockwork Key’ catches my attention because I love Steampunk. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway, and keep up the great work!

    147. Millicent Cabalza

      I’m super excited to read Legend of the Clockwork Key .. the plot is somewhat unique and the blurb just caught my eye when I was reading through and I though “I just have to have it.”

      Similarly, The Assassin’s Curse looks interesting to read as well .. because who wouldn’t be attracted to an assassin and pirate book?

    148. Michelle

      I would love to read The Murmurings because it sounds eerily creepy. I haven’t ready any good ghostly stories and this one sounds intriguing.

    149. bluestockingsblog

      I would love to read The Murmurings because it sounds eerily creepy. I haven’t ready any good ghostly stories and this one sounds intriguing.

    151. silverdragon

      I would love to get Pivot Point. It has been in my to read list for some time (since it was announced in blog posts) and all the reviews that I’ve read so far make me more curious to read it. The whole concept of two distinct story lines but have the same character seems very intriguing to me.

    152. silverdragon

      I would love to read Pivot Point, it has been in my to read list for some time and all the reviews I’ve read so far just make me more curious to read it. A book with two distinct possibilities for the story seems very intriguing to me.

    153. Amanda Ray

      I’ve heard a lot about Splintered~ as well as The Assassin’s Curse so I would enjoy having either of these. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    154. Amanda Ray

      I’d love to have Splintered. I have seen a lot of great reviews for Splintered and have only heard great things about it. It has been on my TBR list for a while. I have also read the synopsis for The Assassin’s Curse and it also sounded great. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    155. erin

      thanks for the fun giveaway! I’m very interested in Unremembered Pivot Point :)

    156. Ems

      Of all these books, I am the most excited to read Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood, Spellcaster, and The Assassin’s Curse.

      First, I am a Janeite through and through. I not only love Jane Austen’s stories, but adaptations of her stories. I LOVE a good Austen adaptation and have been reading them ALL lately. They give me ALL THE FEELS.

      Second, I adore Claudia Gray. Her Evernight series was fantastic and brought fun new twists to the paranormal world. Also, Balthazar. DELICIOUS.

      Finally, books about assassins should just be read. By everyone, everywhere. Especially if there are pirates involved. Pirates AND assassins = perfect combination.

      Thank you for the chance to win.

    157. Maji Bookshelf

      I have read three of those books, two that I loved! which are Pivot Point and The Assassin’s Curse. More people should read the latter because it is about a pirate and an assassin!!!

      thanks for the giveaway,

    158. Mandroid

      I would pick Legacy of the Clockwork key because it sounds entertaining and it looks like steampunk. My reading rotation can always afford to have more steampunk in it.

      Thanks for the great giveaway!

    159. Mandroid

      Legacy of the Clockwork Key looks like some really fun and entertaining steampunk, and I can always use more steampunk in my reading rotation.

      Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    160. Rizka

      I’d really like to check out Splintered by A.G. Howard. Been eyeing it for a while, but never got a chance to pick it up because my country is late at everything and it is currently unavailable at book depository. I really want to read a good Alice in Wonderland retelling and this book sounds nice!

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    161. Danielle Nguyen

      I think I’d choose The Assassin’s Curse. I’ve heard a lot of good things and I love fantasy. Thanks for the chance to win!

    162. Ellie

      Is it odd that I would want The Assasin’s curse, even though I’ve already read it? I have it on my kindle and I just love it so much, I’d want it on my bookshelf lol. But what I’be be most excited to read is Splintered. From what I’ve read in reviews, it’s good. And reminds me of Ivy from batman, who’s awesome and super bad-ass

    163. quinsque

      I’d love to get my hands on Spellcaster!

      I’ve recently added it to my to-read shelf on Goodreads since I was aware of it’s release. I’m a fan of Hex Hall and The Secret Circle (as mentioned in the summary on Goodreads xD) and the summary did appeal to me as they said it would.

      TL;DR: Totally my type of book! c:

    164. Jasprit

      Thank you for the generous giveaway Wendy! I would love to win a copy of either Bruised or Pivot Point. Both were books which I had completely overlooked in the first instance, thinking they would not be my type of reads, but then these awesome reviews started trickling in and I knew that I would be a big fan of these great books too. They both also focus on things never really looked at in the YA scene and that’s something that drew me to them too! :)

    165. Emily Elizabeth

      One of these four:
      Unremembered by Jessica Brody
      Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
      The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke
      Pivot Point by Kacie West

      All of them sound wonderful–though I’ve already read TAC, I just want a hardcopy. Thank you! <3

      Hi Wendy! :)
      Thanks for a great contest, I don’t enter into many of those, as according to my husband I have way too many books as it is (he calls me a hoarder *pouts*),but I see Splintered there.. and yes, it’s one of the books I’ve heard amazing things about and am very excited for :)
      Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks!

      Hmmm, a chance to “make my case“.

      Begging, may be considered dramatic, and flattery would be frowned upon…..hmm *light bulb*

      First, I would like, Spellcaster, Unremembered and The Assassins Curse. Now to plead my case (insert evil laugh).

      Assassin’s Curse has a runaway princess pirate bride! Do I really have to say more?

      Unremembered has a girl who survived a airplane CRASH! Even if this was non-fiction I would crave it.

      Spellcaster has a really pretty cover. It’s not an elaborate answer, but hey it’s the truth.

      Well, Ms. Wendy, that’s all I got. Thank you all for the giveaway, and wish me luck! :)

    168. Amanda

      Hi Wendy Darling, thanks for the opportunity to win some sweet-hot book candy ;) If I could choose one of the books I would choose “Unremembered” because the idea is just awesome. I really love the “loss of memory” hook and have read several adult novels with it, I’d love to see the YA version :D

      Good luck to everyone!

    169. Barbara E.

      All of these books sound great, but I’m most excited to read:
      Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey
      Firebrand by Gillian Philip
      The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke

    170. Xinyun

      Out of all the books, I am most excited on reading Splintered by A.G.Howard. I would usually prefer books that is lay out in a fantasy world as well as books that contains adventure where it can keep me occupied fully. Furthermore, it will be interesting to know how the author will be describing the wonderland to make it into a place ”far darker” than Lewis Carroll’s. More importantly, the protagonist have a choice to make for people who she can trust which also adds on to why Splintered is the book I am more excited for as compared to the rest. :)

    171. Christine K.

      I want aaaaall the books xD But I think I’d choose either Spellcaster or The Assassin’s Curse. I’ve heard nothing but praise for The Assassin’s Curse from my friends, and I’m really curious about Spellcaster. I haven’t really read any books on witches, but it sounds like a great read.

      Thanks for the giveaway! You’ve listed some really awesome books :)

    172. subtleadieu

      I’m not sure which book is the most exciting to read! I’ve already read Splintered and it’s amazing but I’m looking forward to Spellcaster and Unremembered too!

      Thanks for the giveaway!

    173. Alyssa

      I really want to read Unremembered by Jessica Brody. I’ve enjoyed reading her other books and I’m sure I’ll also love Unremembered.

    174. Shannelle Chua

      (Okay, someone from the comments could win. Okay. I’ll do my best.)

      Firstly, this giveaway looks amazing. And that pile of books look great too. :3

      From the choices you’ve given us, I would want to read Pivot Point. I’ve seen it on quite a lot of book blogs, and after reading the summary, it has a lot to offer. And there are just so many glowing reviews about it, and that must mean it’s good. It’s also hard to resist the lure all those question that the summary provides.

      Second in line would have to be The Assassin’s Curse. I want to know what this curse is, and the beginning line of the top review signs the deal for me: “The Assassin’s Curse opens with a runaway bride making a getaway on a camel. I kid you not.”

      Lastly, I would like to read Bruised. The cover didn’t really pull me in at the beginning, but after reading the summary, I’m in for the book. Once again, there are quite a lot of high reviews for the book, so that means that the author didn’t ruin the concept of it all.

      And that’s it! :3 Pleasepickme

    175. Lisa Beth

      Thank you SO much for this giveaway, for one!

      There are two books I’m super excited to get my hands on: Splintered, and Pivot Point! I have heard so many good things about both books. Splintered’s cover is GORGEOUS and would look great on my shelf. :) And I love the concept of Pivot Point and would love to see how it plays out!

    176. Leah

      I would love to read Legacy of the Clockwork Key! I love the whole old world magic in the story and I’m always up for mysteries and conspiracies! :)

    177. Kat

      Wow! Great giveaway! Thanks so much. It’s always fun to win free books. =D

      Anyway, the books I’d be thrilled to read are Legacy of the Clockwork Key, Unremembered, and Pivot Point. I’ve heard great things about all three. =D

    178. Ana Marcondes

      Oh man, do I hope I win this one!
      First of all there are SO many amazing books to choose from! I’ve been crazy to get my hands on The Assassin’s Curse and Splintered.
      Second, I just moved and started college (Architecture :D) so it has been especially hard to acquire new books lately, and if there are Giveaway Gods somewhere, they have not been merciful towards me, but here I am still hoping to be The Chosen One this time.

    179. sashabella

      I think something wonky may have happened to my first comment so I’ll try this again.

      I think this is a great way to do a giveaway and I love these books. I’m especially keen on HarperTeen books right now, they just keep turning out the good ones. I’ve had four of these books on my TBR list for a while now.

      Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
      Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey
      Splintered by A.G. Howard
      Pivot Point by Kacie West

      Their stories look amazing as do their covers. I mean, Splintered is drop dead gorgeous!
      Thanks again for this awesome giveaway. I hope I can be a lucky winner, but regardless of who wins, they sure will be lucky. =]

    180. Ana Marcondes

    181. sashabella

      Uh, okay. First of all I have to say great idea for the giveaway letting winners choose. Secondly, great freaking books. HarperTeen is my favorite publishing house right now (and no I’m not just saying that lol). Oh my gosh I have been waiting for these to come out for a while. Out of the pile I only really know of four that are in my TBR list.
      Spellcaster by Claudia Gray
      Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey
      Splintered by A.G. Howard
      Pivot Point by Kacie West

    182. Beth

      Wow…great choices! I really, really, really want to read Splintered. I love the story concept and have a feeling I will be totally drawn in. Your blog is so artsy and fantastic…love your taste!
      Beth :-)

    183. Alaiel Kreuz

      I would love to win Unremembered because I’ve read so many amazing things about it that I can’t get it out of my mind -and it’s driving crazy xD

      Thanks for the chance! :D

    184. K Wat

      This give away is mind blowingly spectacular!!!Having the chance to win one or even possibly three new books is like Christmas for book lovers. I mean who wouldn’t love to dive into a new world hidden deep inside those pages? I think this give away is absolutely wonderful! glad that there are so many book lovers out there, and I love that there are blogs like these to help book lovers satisfy their thirst for new adventures :D

    185. Christina (Christinareadsya)

      “This is where you can make your case instead of just praying that the cruel, unfeeling Rafflecopter gods will smile down upon you!” LOL. The Rafflecopter gods.

      Spellcaster by Claudia Gray – because I’ve read Claudia Gray’s other work and have generally enjoyed it, if not overly loved it.

      Splintered by A.G. Howard – because a lot of reviewers were really into this Alice retelling and my critique partner also liked it… minus long descriptions? Hm.

      The Murmurings by Carly Anne West – because that cover is freaky and I want to read a good horror story, though I think I remember you saying on GR that it’s not as scary as that cover promises.

      The Assassin’s Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke – because a lot of people were really into this one, and pirates! assassins! curses! fantasy! Really that’s all I need to know.

      Pivot Point by Kacie West – because almost every reviewer I trust has raved about this book.

      :)

    186. Kari

      I’m excite to read Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood! I love Jane Austen, and some of the modern retakes are pretty interesting :-). Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

    187. writer.dreamer

      I’m most excited for Pivot Point! The plot sounds so different from anything I’ve seen so far and I’m eager to see how the author handles it!

    188. Cristina

      I am most excited to read Splintered. Out of all the books, the summary of this book interested me the most. Plus, the cover is gorgeous.

    189. Vicky :S

      Ohh! Thanks for the giveaway… specially for the international part haha :D I would like to read The Assasin’s Curse.. I’ve always loved stories with pirates and action… and a friend told me it was a cool book :D

    190. Lindsay Smith

      Ooh, these are really interesting and thoughtful selections–not just the super-hyped books of the moment. I’m very intrigued by SPLINTERED and PIVOT POINT in particular–the latter because I am really excited about parallel worlds right now, coming off a Fringe binge!

    191. Angela Chen

      Oh. My. God. I would love to have those books! I’d choose Pivot Point, because I read it, and dear god, it’s amazing. I had to borrow it from the library, because I can’t buy books often, so most books come from the library. And I can’t keep them forever. :c Anyway, I’d just about die if I had a copy of Pivot Point that I can actually keep. Thank you so so much! <3

    192. ang

      I have to be honest and say that part of why I’m so thrilled about this giveaway is the simple fact that SO. MANY. of the books are already on my tbr list. However, if I could pick one or two that have my interest the most? Maybe Unremembered and The Murmurings, because as of right now, I know nothing about either of them, and I’m not even sure how that’s possible. Ha. :)

    193. Carmen B.

      Awesome giveaway! I’m most interested in Pivot Point, Unremembered, and The Murmurings. They all pursue plots that seem new to me, or that I haven’t read about often. (I’ve already read Splintered, otherwise it’d be on my list too ;) )
      Thanks for the chance to win, and for making it international!

    194. Gaby

      I am REALLY excited for Unremembered by Jessica Brody. I have 52 reasons by this author and I loved it. The cover to this book looks amazing :)

    195. Evette Torres

      This is an awesome giveaway! There are at least 5 books here that are on my tbr list. But if I had to choose I think I would go with Splintered. Thanks for this giveaway! :D

    196. Evette Torres

      This is a great giveaway! There are at least 5 books here that are in my tbr pile. But if I had to choose I think that the book that I want to read most is splintered. Thanks for this giveaway! :D

    197. Ashley

      Unremembered! All the reviews so far sound like it will be a great read and the premise sounds really cool!

    198. Sea Glass

      This is an awesome giveaway, I have to say!
      Splintered is the book that I’ve had my eye on (and for good reason, I mean look at the lovely cover!). I’ve been really into fairy-tale retellings the last little while (though I think this is more of a “sequel” to Alice in Wonderland).

      I enjoy you girls’ reviews!

      Crossing my fingers. :)

    199. dragongirl

      Probably Splintered! I love Alice in Wonderland so much, and I’m eager to see what this retelling is like. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    200. Elle

      So excited about this!! It’s so rare that intl entries get to win an actual book rather than an ebook! So want to read Spellcaster, Unremembered, Pivot Point, Splintered and Brusied! Heck they are all awesome choices lol :-)

    201. Chenise Jones

      I’m really excited to read Splintered by A.G. Howard. I’ve been hearing some mixed things about it but that’s completely fine with me. I like checking out books that people don’t agree with and seeing where I find myself after I’ve read it. It’s always interesting to see where people have different perspectives on different things.

    202. Michelle

      Thanks for the international giveaway! I’m very excited to read Bruised because I’ve read some great early reviews and love contemporary novels.

    203. Miss Anderson

      I’m interested to read Unremembered. I love stuff from the sci-fi/adventure/mystery/page-turner genre. Don’t know how I hadn’t heard of it earlier!

    204. AllieDurr

      So many choices! I think I am most excited for Pivot Point. I love that there are more scifi ya books coming out! :)

    205. AllieDurr

      So many choices! I think I am most excited about Pivot Point. Love that there are more scifi ya books coming out. :)

    206. Danielle Davis

      Each of the books seems like a promising read and it was hard to narrow it down, but I’d love to read Pivot Point. Based on the reviews and the synopsis it seems like my kind of book and I’m excited to read it.

      Thank you for the giveaway and good luck to everyone.

    207. Debz

      I don’t know if I could pick which I’m most excited for. They all look great and I’d love to read every single one of them! Thanks for this giveaway!

    208. Unknown

      I’m really interested to read Bruised, in part because it’s gotten such stunning reviews, and in maybe larger part because Wendy didn’t think it was as amazing as everyone else seems to. I also think it’s a really interesting take on PTSD and am interested to see how much of the book is a genuine exploration of Imogen’s complicated feelings about this robber and how much is a soapbox about gun control and gun violence. I’m hoping it’s the former, as then I’ll be a four or five star review and have the privilege of reading something horrible in a beautifully handled way. If it’s all soap box I’ll be disappointed, but those are the books I weirdly end up writing my most thoughtful reviews on (See: Tiger Lily).

    209. Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard

      What a great way to do a giveaway! I’ll mention it (with a link) in my News & Notes feature on Saturday. And I’d love to win any of these — I’m in the middle of Splintered, which I borrowed from the library (and am really, really enjoying). I’ve neither read nor own any of the others, so I’d be delighted with any of them.

    210. Sana

      I’v already read Pivot Point which I loved and Unremembered which was alright. I’m also very excited for Bruised, The Murmurings and Splintered.

      Thank you for making the giveaway international. You guys rock!

    211. Ashley

      I’m really excited to read Unremembered, it so isn’t a me book, but at the same time I’m trying to read new stuff and branch out so I’m excited to read it.

    212. Emma

      Such a fantastic giveaway1 Can I say that I’m excited to read them ALL? Because I totally am…

      But if I had to choose I’d pick Splintered because I’m a sucker for retellings of any kind, and Pivot Point because the premise sounds super unique!

    213. Kylie Summers

      I’d really love to read Legacy of the clockwork key and Firebrand! The covers are gorgeous and its really difficult to find good books overseas! Thank you for the opportunity for the giveaway :)

    214. Nicole Mainardi

      I’m really excited to read Spellcaster! I need to read more books with witches in them. But I already read Pivot Point and that was amazing! Thanks so much for the giveaway :)

    215. Lexxie Lin

      I would love to read Splintered! Both because I’ve heard good things about it, and because, for once, I’m really loving the cover so much I just want to read the book.

      YAY for an awesome March giveaway!

    216. LisaFicTalk

      I think I still wanna try The Murmurings even though it didn’t live up to the cover and summary. I’d also like to read Splintered. I’ve seen good things about it.

    217. Chloe

      Wow, Legacy of the Clockwork Key and The Assassin’s Curse sound amazing! Steampunk, pirates, assassins, mysteries, clues… What more could you want? I’m bummed college has been keeping me from staying up on my new YA releases, b/c these sound fab. Thanks for the chance to win!

    218. Laurie Rosengren

      Ooooh! I’m super-psyched about several of these books, especially UNREMEMBERED an BRUISED. I’m a fan of fiction that deals with memory, so I’m going to have to go with UNREMEMBERED (great title, BTW!).

    219. Ashley Rogers

      I really want to read unremembered or the murmurings! These books both sound fantastic! The covers are so lovely! Thank you for your generous giveaway!

    220. thefictionconniption

      I’ve read Splintered and Pivot Point already, and luckily really enjoyed them both. Though Splintered definitely went down in history as one of my all time favorites. (BOOK TWO PLEASE BE HERE NOW-LIKE.) But I think I’d go with The Murmurings – because I mean, what a creep-tastic title and cover!

    221. Book Chelle

      Awesome contest! Legacy of the Clockwork Key catches my eye, based on cover work alone. The synopsis looks promising, and I’m always a sucker for those types of stories.

    222. This Little Princess

      I am on a quest to read as many books as I can before I have my second baby in July.Life will again be crazy and sleep will come before books and my love of reading will take the backseat to the love of being a mom. I would love to read Spellcaster and alot.of the others. Thanks!

    223. beccabooklover

      Ooh I think I’m most excited to read Pivot Point. I’ve heard some great stuff about it too so really really eager to get my hands on it! Firebrand look soooo good too, love medieval fantasy so it would be amazing to get a copy to read :)

      Great giveaway :)

    224. Cayce

      Unremembered sounds really interesting, and Splintered too (I’m a fan of Alice in Wonderland )
      Thank you for the giveaway! :)

    225. the_bosix

      I think I’d choose either Pivot Point or Unremembered, both of these books sound promising and I think I’d enjoy them, anyone would.
      Thank you for this awesome giveaway! :)

    226. This Little Princess

      I am on a quest to read as many books as I can before I have my second baby in July…then life will be a little crazy for awhile and my love for reading will take a backseat to my love for being Mom. I would love to read Splintered, Legacy of the Clockwork Key and Spellcaster. Thanks for the giveaway :)

    227. Ashleigh Paige

      I’m not technically “excited” to read it, but I really want a copy of The Murmurings. Even if I dislike it, the cover will give me the nightmare fuel I need. Seriously, her stare is just creepy no matter what’s inside the book.

      (That sounds odd, doesn’t it? It just so happens I have amazing nightmares that give me great ideas, so I endure the terror for something awesome.)

      I like the sound of Bruised, though. I’d snatch that one up in a hurry too.

    228. Carina Olsen

      Ohh, thank you for the awesome giveaway :D So many amazing books. <3 I cannot wait to read Spellcaster :) Because I have loved a lot of the books by Claudia, and this one seems amazing!

    229. rashikathebookowl

      I’d want Splintered and The Murmurings.Splintered more out of curiosity then anything else because I’ve heard good things about it. The Murmurings however seems right up my alley, I am going through the phase where I crave Mystery and Thrillers and well.. this one definitely sounds like what I would want.

    230. Steena

      I have been yearning for The Assassin’s Curse cover. The blend of The Arabian Nights, Assassin’s Creed, and Aladdin is irresistible to me.

    231. Yuko86

      Well, I’d really like to read Unremembered, The murmurings and Splintered: they all seem great, interesting and amazing.
      Kisses from Italy and thanks for the giveaway!

    232. Rebecca

      Wow! This is an awesome giveaway. Thanks so much for having it. I really want Splintered. I have heard so many good things about it.
