Fuzzy.Coffee.Books is One! [Thanks and Giveaway]

Wow! What a whirlwind of a year it has been! Fuzzy.Coffee.Books, my little ol' book blog, is one year old today!

I can't even tell y'all how much different my book blogging life is now from when I started it on July 1st, 2011.

I don't even remember what I had been reading, but I got online and was looking for something new and interesting to read. I found, just by googling, a couple of book blogs and thought it was cool what they were doing, sharing their thoughts about books and making recommendations. Well, I've always been "that person" that my friends call when they are looking for something to read. They'll be standing in a book store, totally lost and call me to point them in the right direction for something I think they'll enjoy. So I thought, hey, if I have one of these book blogs, then my friends can keep up with what I'm reading and what I think is great and not so great! Then, the next time they go to a book store, they'll be armed with a list of books they've seen me talking about and know what they want to get!

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that OTHER PEOPLE would want to know what I had to say! But y'all have proven me wrong with your comments and your support! This is such an amazing community to be a part of, readers, bloggers, authors, publishers, and I feel so blessed to be a part of it, and to have made so many new friends! My lovely friends and followers, all of the FCB supporters out there, y'all are what has made this past year so awesome! Thank you so much for your love of reading, for your willingness to talk about books, and your continued support of Fuzzy.Coffee.Books, reading, and the written word! Y'all are incredible!

Wait, what? You mean my thanks wasn't enough? You want something more? Okay, okay, twist my arm! ;-) In honor of Fuzzy.Coffee.Books' first birthday, I've decided to have some giveaways. Yes, GIVEAWAYSSSSS! I wanted to giveaway some of my favorite books. So after pouring over the books I read this year, and the books I read repeatedly this year, I finally came up with a list of my favorites. By the way, when I say "this year," in this case I mean, over the past year I've been blogging. So all of these books have been read since FCB came into being.

Favorites
Debut: 
Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
Tempest by Julie Cross
Illuminate by Aimee Agresti

Dystopian/Sci-Fi: (I grouped these together because sometimes a book is both!)
Matched by Ally Condie
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
Timepiece by Myra McEntire

Paranormal: 
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Rapture by Lauren Kate
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead

Miscellaneous: 
Lola and The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday

Four separate giveaways! That means Four winners! Now, the rules, before we get on to the entries. First of all, YES, YOU MAY ENTER ALL FOUR! You may not win all four, if you get pulled for more than one, I'll email you and you can choose which one you want more. If you win, you will win your choice from the category. This contest is open WORLD-WIDE, as long as Book Depository can deliver to you! Lastly, let's say you've read every single one of these books. I mean, I have, who am I to think that some of y'all haven't. If you have, but maybe haven't read like, Fever, or Crossed (a book in a series that's mentioned above) go ahead and enter to win the book from that series) if you win, when I email you, we'll discuss and see if I can get you one of the other books in the series. Make sense? Most importantly though is that you remember that you can indeed enter all four! Here are the entry forms!
