Here is the surprise that I have been working on. Welcome to my very first giveaway!

I can't believe that my blog will soon be 5 months and I now have over 30 followers. I’ve enjoyed sharing my book reviews and thoughts with you all. I look forward to sharing my passion for reading with all of you every day. Thanks to you, blogging has been really fun. I want to continue to grow, get better at blogging, reach new book lovers and followers, which brings me to my first giveaway. Please help me reach my next goal of 60 followers.

For those that have been following my blog from the beginning, you will know that I have a soft spot for YA literature. Like many of you, I'm also counting down the days for Suzanne Collin's Mockingjay, the third and final book of the blockbuster, bestselling Hunger Games series. So to celebrate my first 3 months and my first 37 followers, I am going to give away a copy of Mockingjay! Wait, there's more!! If I reach my goal of 120 followers I will add a second great book to my giveaway... The Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. If I'm lucky enough to get 180 followers, I will throw in another item to the giveaway.

    (continued from last comment b/c it was too big!)
    Two, Suzanne Collins is not afraid to kill characters we like. I won't title-drop, but I've been reading a lot of books where the main characters and their immediate circle don't die. The premise of the other books is that they had to die - there could only be one survivor of the games. I worry that the characters I care deeply about (okay, who am I kidding - Peeta, yes PEETA!) will get the axe.

    Third, there's a movie coming out. Will the fact that a film is to follow impact or affect the plot of the final book?

    There's a midnight release party for Mockingjay at my local bookstore. I'll be there, maybe not to partake in the activities (which I can't imagine what they will involve) but to get my book. I'll be afraid to open it but I won't be able to resist. After all, this was the book series that prevented me from watching the Olympics (and to hear that story, you'll have to read MY blog!)

    Oh my gosh, awesome contest! I'm dying to read Clockwork Angel and Mockingjay! Thanks for the great contest. I just found your blog, though Shelfari, and it's really nice. Love your layout. ^_^

    I have heard so much about the Hunger Games series - what better incentive to start than getting a copy of the third book. Hopefully you get enough followers to give away The Clockwork Angel as well, it looks like an interesting entry in the steampunk genre. Good luck with your blog!

    **My Library?!?

    Let me just say that I've frequented many libraries over the years, but I haven't visited any as much as I've visited the ones in the Indian River County library system. There's Brackett Library near my house, the Main branch downtown hear my husband's office as well as others. I go there at least 3 times a week, and some of the staff know me by name. There's free Wi-Fi for cardholders, you can make book requests, and there are thousands of DVDs to check out (even the new releases are there!). As a mother of two young children, I've enjoyed their programs for little ones. If I ever have to move, these libraries will be missed. Here's the link:

    So yes, I'm a fan.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    I LOVE that my library is so up on technology and so responsive. My kids have homework assistance and I can do everything on-line short of physically picking up a book.

    I'm an old follower so that gives me 6 points total!

    Hey, hello!

    I found you on Shelfari and asked for your blog link. You also recommended some fantastic YA books that I'm going to bury my nose in soon, at least some. I'm very curious about the books and writing in this genre. Who knows? I might even try my hand at a series.

    I love my local library and spend too much time there. What I really like is that I can order a book in from another community if they don't have it AND they even send me an e-mail and tell me when it arrives. How kewl is that?

    You have a lovely blog here, and I'm not following you. I'd love win a copy of Mockingjay!

    Thanks so much for your assistance, and I promise to return often.
