Best of 2011 giveaway hop!



Photobucket


I'm taking part in the 'Best of 2011' giveaway hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer! Originally I was going to give away my favourite book of the year which, if you saw my post yesterday, is Divergent by Veronica Roth. However, I feel like EVERYONE has read this, so instead I've decided to give away my 2nd favourite, a book I also feel is SEVERELY underrated!

And that book is....THE DEMON'S LEXICON by Sarah Rees Brennan!!



It's a perfect example of YA urban fantasy AND it's set in England AND it has a smoking hot love interest!! It's also got some of the funniest lines in it I've ever read! I genuinely feel like everyone needs to have read this book! You can see my review of it here.

How to enter:

All you have to do is leave a blog comment telling me your favourite book of 2011, and then fill in the widget below!
I know the rafflecopter widget is slow loading but it IS there, and your entry WONT count unless you use it I'm afraid! There's no way I can speed that up, it's an issue with rafflecopter. 

There *are* optional entries, if you want them.

My giveaway is international

And there you have it! Good luck, and be sure to check out the rest of the stops on the hop!

  12. Thank you for the giveaway! I have a dozen favorite books this year, but I think Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake is at the top of the pack for YA (Hammered by Kevin Hearne, overall). Funny thing though - I haven't read Divergent yet! It keeps getting pushed down on my TBR list. I think I should remedy that.
