Congrats! I will email you soon!

Good luck to everyone entering this week! Remember, you get entries for spreading the word!


  1. I read all the books in the Greywolves series by Quinn Loftis last year and I absolutely loved them!I feel like not many people knew about them or appreciated them as much as they should have been.

  2. A few of my hidden gems:
    Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
    Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
    Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic
    Eona by Alison Goodman
    Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
    Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama

  3. I am reading this book called House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewski, it's a modern horror and it's such a mind trip

  4. Any of Rusty Fischer's books, but specifically Zombies Don't Cry, Vamplayers, or Detention of the Living Dead. He's got a great sense of humor in his writing and if you like Monster B-Movies, you'll love his stories.

  5. Few that I absolutely loved - Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto, I Love You To Death by Natalie Ward, Me Before You by Jojo Moyes, If I Lie by Corine Jackson.

  6. I echo Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic

  7. (I just realized that I read a lot of the bigger books and don't get enough time to get to the smaller releases...gotta work on that!) I'd have to say My Name is Memory. I loved this book by Ann Bradshares and it definitely didn't get the support it deserved!

  8. Every Other Day was different and really good.
