·         A copy of Bitterblue

All prizing provided by Penguin.
Giveaway open to US addresses only.

To enter, simply leave a comment telling me which character from this series you'd want for a BFF and why. Make sure to include your contact information. This giveaway will be open until midnight May 8th.
I have to say, I am pretty envious of the person who wins that tote bag. It is awesome. 

About the book:
Bitterblue is the long-awaited companion to New York Times bestsellers Graceling and Fire.
Eight years after GracelingBitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck's reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle--disguised and alone--to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past.

Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn't yet identified, holds a key to her heart.

  1. I'll go with Bitterblue, because she seems like she could use a friend (at least in Graceling).

  2. Oh, I think I'd go with Katsa. She's damaged, yes, but she'll always be able to take care of herself (and probably me, too). Great giveaway!

  3. Omg I am so excited for this book!! I'd probably want Fire, because she's still strong on the inside, despite all the hate and fear for what she is, which I admire.

  4. I'm also going to go with Katsa. I just felt that connection with her and beyond that I'm not sure why we'd make BFF's, but sometimes that's the kind of BFF you need. :o)

    p.s. the boyfriend started reading Graceling this weekend. loves it. I knew he would. :o)

    1. My husband just finished reading Graceling and loved it! I'm kicking myself that I didn't get it to him sooner.

    I'd have to say Katsa. She seems really cool and she could always use more friends.

  6. Bitterblue please! I love her addiction to stories and figuring out things.

  7. I think I'd want Po, so we could help each other out. Can't wait to see if any characters show up in the new book!

    For a BFF, I would want self-confident Clara from Fire because she's a capable leader, a caring sister, and a patient friend. (extemter at hotmail dot com)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Oh, this is a tough one. I'd have to say either Bitterblue or Katsa. I think they both need a friend. But, then again, Katsa has Po...

    ReplyDelete
  10. Um, I think I'd want to be friends with Fire, because I can be sure we'd never have a dull moment hanging out together :) Love that bag!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I suppose Katsa, because she could train me to help myself more. I already read this by the way and TOTALLY LOVED IT, which is why I think I need the totebag, to proclaim my love to the world! LOL

  12. Forget the book (though I want that too). The tote bag is awesome! Me wants it. I think I will go with Bitterblue, even though I haven't gotten to know her yet. It just seems like she'll be my type. Great giveaway!

    I think I would want Katsa as my BFF, just so she can kick anyone's ass that tries to mess with me or does something mean. One look and they'd be scared! Also, I totally want to learn some moves. That'd be nice to know how to defend myself :D
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. umm. I need me that bag.

    There aren't a lot of girls I can easily be around for long periods of time, but I like to think Katsa would be the exception to that, so I'll say her.

    But I would never walk away from Po..

    ReplyDelete
  16. OH NOS! What a great giveaway!! Oh man, if I had to choose just ONE of Kristin Cashore's lovely characters, you know I'm gonna have to go with Fire. Or Brigan. Mostly I just want to be a fly on the wall and watch their oh so lovely relationship unfold. *sigh* I think it's time for another reading.

  17. Katsa would be my first pick for this one. She's so strong and independent but she's got a vulnerable side to her too and I think we'd get along.

  18. Po is the best! He's loyal,funny, and his awesome grace would come in handy if I was ever in need.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Happy Bitterblue day! After a quick read of Bitterblue, I'd have to say Giddon, who, despite often being the butt of the joke as well as lied to (for good reason, but still), is so loyal and steadfast to his friends. Loving the bag!

  20. Katsa. kicks butt when need to, and is good with knives. :D I'd love to learn. :D

  21. Po...definitely Po. Sort of have a character crush on him.

  22. Po, for sho'!

  23. I really like his character and think he deserves better than Katsa and all her issues.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh. Fire, most likely. Not only was it my favorite book (of the first two), but I love how Fire was forced to grow up among people who would take advantage of her and not see her as a genuine person. I'd like to think that, once she understands how I truly see her as simply herself, we'd get along pretty well. :)

    I really liked Brigan, actually. I prefer the betas, I suppose.

  27. As I really dug "Fire" more than "Graceling" (and I dug "Graceling" quite a bit), I think I'm going to have to go with Fire. She was a very loyal friend to those she truly cared about; plus, she was delightfully flawed, which made her (despite her monsterous status), pretty relatable.

  28. I think I'd go with Bitterblue. Granted the last time we saw her she was just a kid, but I think she's sweet. And will probably grow up into a great person. =)

  29. Ooh...well, they're all such good and real characters, but for a best friend, I'd probably want Raffin. Or maybe Hanna when/as she grows up. Either would be wonderful (well, so would a lot of other characters, but those are the best!)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hmm.. I would probably want Po to be my best friend! Although I'd be kinda jealous of him and Kasta... so maybe I would be besties with Kasta instead?

  31. I would like to be friends with Bitterblue herself!

    I have my own giveaway of two harcovers going on, but I really want to win one myself! (and the tote bag is COOL).

  32. Katsa because she would back me up and we seem kinda similar.

  33. I think Fire would make an awesome best-ie. She is very loyal and fiercely protective of her friends. The tote it tote-ally awesome! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  34. I think I would go with Bitterblue. I seem to recall having this feeling like she had this centered/levelheaded type of character and I liked that a lot.

  35. Archer, because he's a bit darker, mischievous, and protective, and I'm a sucker for those kinds of guys.

  36. I'm gonna go with Po because he's my favorite character in the books, and he's a good fighter so he'd watch my back.

  37. Oh, so exciting!

    I have to say Kasta as she can survive ANYTHING! So when the zombie Apocalypse happens, I'm sticking with her.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  38. Allison's comment right above mine is awesome.

    So many good choices. I'm going to go with Fire. Maybe she could bring Brigan along.

  39. Katsa hands down! Po would come second than Bitterblue.

    Tough choice! I believe I'd choose Fire, because she's such a loyal person that I think she'd make a pretty amazing friend. I so loved that book!

    Thanks!

  41. That's a tough decision! I think I'll go with Po because I like his personality so much! He's funny, and easy going probably what I need and I'm always ready for a good friendly match it doesn't matter if it's physical or mental, I'm sure I could always drive him crazy especially if I knew Katsa, too. Well, besides I want that tote-bag so bad!
    I hope I win (no hard feelings to the winner)

    Thanks!

  42. Oh gosh this is a hard one! I was drawn to Kasta from the moment I picked Graceling up, but Bitterblue, oh Bitterblue and I shared something special. I 've been waiting for her story ever since and am ecstatic it's finally here! thanks for the giveaway!

  43. This one is tough! However, I'd say that my BFF would be Bitterblue, and here's why:
    Bitterblue is strong,
    Innocent but courageous,
    Tiny bit afraid of what lies ahead,
    Trustworthy, for she has seen so much,
    Expresses herself directly,
    Real, she has problems and joys, and feelings,
    Bears very well with secrets,
    Lies when needed, but only for good,
    Understanding and kind,
    Excellent example of what a friend should be!!

Angie's Best Books of 2016

Let's just lay our cards on the table, shall we, and agree that, on the whole, 2016 was an abysmal year.
And I'd just like to personally invite it not to let the door hit it on the way out.
This is me being as charitable as I can possibly be at this point. 
That said, I want to send a glorious shout out to the wonderful books that have come out this past year, and to all the authors (and readers) who have not given in to the anxiety, depression, anger, and fear that I know so many of us have felt throughout the past twelve months (or more). It is the last day of the year, and I have poured all of my gratitude (and hope for a better one to come) into my annual list of my favorite reads of the year. Just 17 this year. Fewer than the past few years, which indicates a healthy dose of necessary rereading in this year that has been what it was, as well as the fact that I just didn't get to as many new releases.

My Year of Georgette Heyer | Book the First: The Convenient Marriage

This is not a drill. I repeat, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. I believe I am, in fact, upon the brink of accomplishing something that I have been meaning to do for years. I want you all to be the first to know that I just read my first very Georgette Heyer. That's right. I actually did it. After years of promising myself and countless others (many of you) that I would do it, I finally managed it! And I can tell that I'm about to dive headlong into a full-fledged binge.

After consulting all of your past comments on which Heyers are your favorites and why (and after some serious counsel from Beth and a well-timed trip to our local Barnes & Noble), I chose to start with The Convenient Marriage. I had no idea it would turn out to contain, without question, one of my favorite proposal scenes ever. The kind of proposal scene that makes you feel like nothing could ever go wrong after it. It takes place very early on, and it made me laugh and sigh repeatedly with delight. I know I will be …

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…
