Armchair BEA: Giveaway Time!

June 4th, 2012 by Debbie's World of Books

Armchair BEA

Today is giveaway day at Armchair BEA so be sure to check out all the other great giveaways going on.  I just recently held a giveaway for two of my favorite 2012 reads, Everneath by Brodi Ashton and Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins, so I was debating what to giveaway today.  Since dystopians has become one of my favorite sub-genres I decided why not go with two dystopian reads.

So up for grabs are an ARC of Partials by Dan Wells and a finished copy of Starters by Lissa Price.

    Partials was one of my absolute favorite reads this year. Big fan of the hard dystopian.

    Some of my favorite features on a blog are the creative ones like 5 word movie reviews, or back to the classics. Things that take you outside of the fold a bit!

    Happy BEA from a new follower!

    I think my favorite feature of a blog is the original feature they have to offer. I love the memes. Top Ten Tuesday, Waiting on Wednesday, things like that. I’m finding fun new ones all the time!

    Thanks for the giveaway! (@imabookshark)

    This is an awesome giveaway! These two books are highest on my TBR list, but sadly my library doesn’t have them and I can’t afford to buy them right now.

    The thing that makes me want to subscribe to a blog is when the blogger writes thoughtful, honest reviews of books within my field of interest. And when the blog is relatively drama-free.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    What a great giveaway!

    I like a mix of reviews and memes– author interviews are especially exciting but I’m always good with an old fashioned review!

    Dropping by from the Armchair BEA! I love properly written reviews, memes, and interviews!

    I like discussion posts. I’m not a fan of reviews unless I expect to hate the book or have already read it. (If I don’t care about the book, I won’t read the review, and if I want to read the book, I won’t want a review to ruin my impression of it.)

    I like the reviews, and ratings, Helps me decide if I’m even going to read it or leave it on the shelf a while longer.

  15. Bonnie

    Reviews of course but I also love when blogs feature upcoming releases because there is always some new book coming out that I somehow missed. I love keeping up to date with new books! :)
    Thanks for this giveaway opportunity, I’ve been dying to read Starters!

    Generally, I’m a fan of reviews. But, I also like bookish discussion posts and some creative memes.

  22. McKenna @ Young at Heart

    I have wanted to read both of these for a while now! I really enjoy reviews on blogs, but I also like memes like IMM or Stacking the Shelves.

  23. Maneesha Haroon

    My favorite feature in a book blog would most definitely be reviews! I LOVE reading reviews of books I haven’t read and adding them to my To-read shelf on Goodreads!

  26. Alyce

    Reviews are my favorite, but personal posts are second after that. I like learning something about the blogger behind the reviews. :)

    My favourite features on a blog.. hmm.. that’s tough! I love everything! I guess I really like memes because they’re not only fun to read but they’re the best feature to connect bloggers together. When we have big linky lists it’s so easy to find other bloggers to meet and follow!

  28. Valia

    Thanks for the giveaway! Your blog is adorable! I have to say I love reviews the best. I love promoting other peoples work and reviews do that! ;-)

  34. Inky

    Well obviously I like giveaway. But I love interviews and getting to know new books. Reviews are great but I really like discovering new ones. Sometimes tutorials are also great.

  35. Katharyn

    I love reviews and sometimes meme features that showcase new books! I also love blogging tips too! :)

  36. ephrielle

    Well my favorite feature depends on the day. I just love to read a great review or interview that inspires me to pick up a book. But some days I am a bit lonely and in need of a measure of social interaction so memes fit the bill.

  37. Small Review

    My favorite features are definitely reviews, but I also love when people show the books they got during the week. Those posts always grow my TBR. I also love discussion posts. Hm, I like a lot of different kinds of posts. This was an interesting question, thanks! Thank you for the giveaway, too :)

    Dystopians are my favorite!

    I think my favorite features are great reviews that introduce me to books I’ve never heard of before! I also love posts where people talk about what releases they are looking forward too, to get everyone excited. :D

  43. Christina from The Book Hookup

    I love interviews and cover reveals (CoverHoor!), and I like the Stacking the Shelves/In My Mailbox because for some reason, I love to torture myself by being jealous of all the books other people are getting.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity. *crosses fingers* I’ve had my eye on both of these.

    I hope you have a great BEA-filled week!

  49. Jennifer A

    I’ve been dying to read Starters!! Yay!

    hhmmm. I love getting to know about lots of books at once, so seeing what people buy/receive are usually my fave. I like memes because it gives me the chance to get to know more bloggers in a short amount of time.

  50. Raechel @ Backwood Reviews

    This is a tough question because I love pretty much every part of book blogs, but I have to say the reviews because they give me a chance to know what other people think about books and know their thoughts. I also get an insight on if I might like the book or not. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    email: backwoodsreviews at yahoo dot com

  51. Danielle

    I really like memes such as the Friday Five and this or that interviews with authors and characters (EX: Coke or Pepsi, Ebooks or Print, Chocolate or Hard Candy, etc.) Thanks! :D

  52. Anita Yancey

    I am a big fan of the reviews, the blog hops, and the giveaways.
