CONTEST!!!

Standard

I’ll be posting an interview with ADDISON FOX soon, but in the meantime, I think it’s time for my first ever CONTEST!

All you have to do is answer a few questions for my own edification, and your name will go in a drawing for the prize.

Before you enter the contest, though, BE WARNED. The prize is a tote bag from the Romantic Times conference, filled with author promo items. Many of these include HOT excerpts and book marks illustrated for those over 21, as well as other adult-themed goodies.

In addition to the tote bag, two randomly selected HOT novels will be added to the prize bag.

Okay, here are the questions:

1) What are the last three books you read?

2) What is the next book you plan to buy/read?

3) What authors top your must-read/buy list?

4) What are your favorite types of books?

5) What are your LEAST favorite types of books?

*If you want to answer the questions but would prefer not to be entered in the contest, just add a note to your comment.

*If you do want to be included in the contest, please be sure I have your email address so I can contact the winner for their snail mail addy.

That’s it! I’ll post the winner on Friday, July 9. Thanks for participating!

  8. Hi Debbie and Sewicked – thanks so much for entering the contest! I’m loving this – so many ideas for new books/authors to read. Not that my to-be-read pile needs to be any bigger . . .

  9. Fun, Anya! I’m not entering the contest cuz I was with you at RT and brought home plenty of great hot reads myself. Come to think of it, I amassed a huge TBR pile not only from RT but also from last month’s Lori Foster/Dianne Castel Get Together. The first two of the last three books I just read came from there.

    Thanks for entering the contest!

  13. Just thought I’d come by and play along…

    1) What are the last three books you read?
    I’m trying to write right now so I’m re-reading older stuff. Can’t keep new stuff in around in my head while I’m writing. Let me see what I’ve read:
    1. The Villa / Nora Roberts
    2. Prince Joe/ Suzanne Brockmann
    3. In Too Deep/ Cherry Adair

    2) What is the next book you plan to buy/read?
    It’s summer reading time at our house, even for rising kindergartners. We’ve been reading “Katie Loves Kittens” and “Rhyming Dust Bunnies” LOL
    Oh, you mean for me. I don’t know. Any suggestions?

    3) What authors top your must-read/buy list?
    Jenny Crusie, Jayne Ann Krentz/ Amanda Quick, and if Dorothy L. Sayers publishes from beyond the grave again I’ll buy that one, too.

    4) What are your favorite types of books?
    Books that let me think. Books with good dialogue. Books with characters that feel like real people even if they aren’t the kind of people I know.

    5) What are your LEAST favorite types of books?
    dystopian literature. Yuck. If I believed the world was going to be that bad why would I want to read about it, too.
    A close second are books that think they are women’s fiction but just go ‘huh’ at the end and her life isn’t really any better. those make me want to through the book at the wall. i don’t though. my walls are plaster. no book is bad enough to risk having to replaster my walls. so far.

    • Hi Steph! We have very similar taste – I’ve read the three you just finished and your must-buys are like mine, too. My favorite Dorothy L. Sayers is Gaudy Night, but I also really like a collection of her short stories that was published recently.

      I read for enjoyment, and I want a happy ending, or at least a happy-ish ending. (As in Joshilyn Jackson’s BACKSEAT SAINTS, which had as happy an ending as the story could possibly have.)

      I also count it if a book ends with the possibility of a happy ending, as in Marian Keyes’ ANYBODY OUT THERE?, which is a favorite of mine.

  14. What are the last three books you read?
    anywhere she runs, debra webb
    killer gorgeous , jane holleman
    scream for me, karen rose

    2) What is the next book you plan to buy/read?
