  2. My favorite author is Laurell K. Hamilton. I’m a follower.

    jennsicurella at verizon dot net

  3. It’s hard for me to pick one favorite author, but I’m going to say Barbara Kingsolver.

    I’m not sure if it counts as a follower, but I subscribe in Google Reader.


  4. My favorites are Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (when they work together)

    I’m a follower!

  5. I’m going to say Sara Shepard– it was her series “Pretty Little Liars” that got me into reading. Her books are addictive, mysterious, and SO easy to read. πŸ™‚

    I subscribe by e-mail. I don’t see a follower button…so…unless you mean RSS?

    Tweet tweet:

  6. Oh right. I kind of forgot that PLL is part of this giveaway. I don’t have any of the series, so I’d be ecstatic if I won. &, well, all those books are in my TBR/wishlist.

    Got Books is great! Does it seem like July has been a giveaways blowout in the book blogging community?

  7. My favorite author is Patricia Briggs! Thanks for the contest!


  8. Julie Kenner is my fave!

    This prize pack looks phenomenal! Thanks!

  13. Great giveaway! I don’t have a favorite, but right now I am loving Andrea Cremer πŸ™‚

  14. This is a hard question! But…if I had to pick one, it may have to be Courtney Summers. Her books so far are moving, I love them.


  15. Difficult question. I’d say Jane Austen because I love all of her books.

    Please enter me only if I can participate with my P.O. Box.


  16. lavenderlines

    Kelley Armstrong is my favorite author, although Maggie Steifvater is sneaking up on Kelley. LOL

    That’s a great prize pack. Thanks for the giveaway!

    (I subscibe to your rss feed)

  20. My favorite author right now has to be Julie Kagawa just because every book in her series has been amazing. I also love Stephanie Meyer for the same reason.

    truthbetold004 at gmail dot com

  21. I LOVE Gail Carriger… Suzanne Collins… I love too many authors to choose just one.

    nickiheart16 [at] aim [dot] com

  22. One favorite author? Man, talk about difficult. I have five or six…

    But, for this, I’ll say Steve Hamilton who writes the Alex McKnight series set in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

    And I follow you on Twitter and will be following you via Google as soon as I finish this comment.

  37. My favorite author ever is hard to pick. I love so many for so many different reasons. Overall, though…I think I’d have to pick Janet Evanovich. She managers to take something somewhat ordinary and makes it absolutely hilarious! Plus, her Stephanie Plum series has not one, but two very hot guys. What more could a girl ask for?
