3) Follow me if you choose to but it is not manditory
4) This contest is open to US residents only sorry, but I will have a another international contest coming up soon.
5) Please leave your email address for me to contact you

I would love the Shiver series. I read both of the series(Except for Linger, that's also why I want it) I like the Shiver series better because I really didn't like Ballad. Lament was really good though.

Thank you!!

Do you mean which series I love most between The Wolves of Mercy Falls or the Faerie one? If so, I love the former because it's one of the most beautiful love stories ever written.

If you mean series in general, I would say Harry Potter because it's got everything a good series can ask for - adventure, romance and great characters.

My favorite of the two series is definitely Shiver/Linger. The writing style really draws you in, and Maggie does a great job of the character shifts. All the characters are believable and real, which is nice to see when many YA novels have stereotyped characters not worth reading about at all.
Another thing I really love about the books is that whatever emotion a character is feeling, you're feeling also. Not many authors can do that. <3

-Posted to Facebook! :D

All right I would love the wolves of Mercy Falls books, and they are my favorite for a few reasons.
First of all, Sam is an amazing character and guy we all wish we had!
Secondly Grace is one of the strongest female characters I know. She can take charge in situations that many people would freak out in, and she doesnt seem whiny and defenseless.
I absolutely love the story line and it is so uncliche'! It is hard to find love stories that arent the same old deal. I love her world and everything she stands for and would be honored to win a signed copy.
Plus, Maggie is an excellent writer, (One of my favorites) So any signed books by her would be amazing! I have read Shiver just recently, and I have also read Lament and Ballad.

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
