1000 Follower surprise giveaway!

Wow - 1000 followers! seriously. Do I really say something interesting?

Is that sad? Yeah, kinda is huh?

So to all my wonderful peeps - tell me "What book are you most looking forward to in the fall?"

Comment and I'll giveaway a ARCs/books :) I might just have it in my stack of free goods.

Especially you lurkers out there. If you are a lurker - comment and Ill do a drawing for one Arc just for you! (You have to admit you are a lurker though!) I dont get 1000 comments a day. Under 100 a day so where are the other 950 of you?

I've been lurking for ages... but I've just come out of the closet. Ahhh the release! I'm looking forward to Blameless... which I'll be reading in September.

Hope your dad feels better soon.

Suze said...

Ooops.. I'm at scatkinson(at)gmail(dot)com

Thanks :)

lisanowak said...

Seriously, could you deal with 1000 comments a day? I don't see how you handle 100.

I hope your dad is doing better. Thanks for all your hard work on WriteOnCon.

Tere Kirkland said...

Congrats on the followers! That's awesome.

I'm most looking forward to Paranormalcy and The DUFF. Great contest!

Gail said...

Oh. My. Gosh. 1000 followers! I bow at your awesomeness. I'm still working toward 100 :-)

I'm not sure , I think the one I want the most doesn't come out until winter or spring 2011 but I'm dying to read LIAR'S SOCIETY by Lisa and Laura. I also am interested in reading MATCHED and THE DUFF.

Melissa said...

Wow, 1000 followers! That's amazing:) Congratulations!

I really want to read Matched by Ally Condie. I've heard nothing but good things about it.

Matthew Rush said...

Nicely done on the followers! I'm looking forward to Hilary Wagner's Nightshade City.

Today's guest blogger is Ted Cross!

PJ Hoover said...

Shelli, you always say interesting things! As for fall books, I think I've read them all thanks to BEA, so I'm not sure what else there is!

Stephanie said...

Hi! I'm looking forward to The Duff by Kody Keplinger! It comes out the day before my birthday!

Okie said...

Wow...congrats on a huge milestone. Nice.

As for fall expectations....I'm stoked for Mockingjay with the rest of the world. I'm also excited for Terry Brooks's latest book (even though I've fallen behind in my reading of his stuff).

Granted, I'm so far behind on my TBR pile that I really don't need any new books to come out since they just put me farther behind. ;)

M Pax said...

Woot! Go, Shelli!

Solvang Sherrie said...

Congrats on hitting a thousand. That's a whole lotta peeps!

Does Mockingjay count as fall? The sad thing is my kids don't go back to school until the day after it comes out. The difficult decisions in my life -- ignore the kids on their last day of summer or wait til they're back at school to read the book!

Sandy Shin said...

Yay, congratulations on reaching 1000 followers! :)

I'm looking forward to MATCHED (so awesome!), MOCKINGJAY, and CLOCKWORK ANGEL.

Carolyn V. said...

1000 followers? Sweet! Congrats!

Okapi said...

Congrats for the followers! I'm looking forward to Matched by Ally Condie and Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld!! Ok, I admit: I'm a lurker. Maybe I should come out of the shadows every few often. I think I will brave it :)

Cass said...

I'm a new follower. Not a lurker, just haven't been to this corner of the blogosphere until just now. :) Thanks for the contest! This sounds great... for the fall I'm interested really intently on The DUFF and Matched, but thanks to several people I'm getting an ARC of The DUFF and a pre-order of Matched has been organised. Yay! :D

Some others that I'm waiting on for the Fall are...Extraordinary, Paranormalcy, Anna and the French Kiss, ooh! and The Mermaid's Mirror (which I read on Netgalley, but would love a physical copy of!). Not sure if these are all Fall releases though...

Congrats on the 1000 followers! That's a tremendous effort, right there! I'm half way to 300 followers. :P

Besides MOCKINGJAY (which technically is coming out in the summer), I'm really looking forward to NIGHTSHADE by Andrea Cremer.

Congrats on the thousand followers! :)

I'm a new follower, previously (I suppose) a lurker. There are a ton of awesome books that I'm looking forward to for the fall, but the main four are Plain Kate by Erin Bow, The Exiled Queen by Cinda Williams Chima, Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld and Tortall and Other Lands by Tamora Pierce.

Congratulations on the followers!

ape2016 said...

I guess I am a Lurker. I wonder if I will need medication for it? Does it itch? Haha!!

Congrats and I am dying to read Crescendo. I loved Hush, Hush.

Should I admit that I am 37 but prefer most YA books? Too late now.

Emma Kate "Coops" @ Whats Cracking Coops said...

hahaha, congrats!!! This is fabulous!!!!

Generally I lurk :P Too many blogs in my freaking google reader for me to come out of my shell often! And being away for a week on vacation with 1000+ new posts to be read kinda freaks me out :D

Awesome about the followers!

Cheers, all the way from Australia,
Emma :)

Jordyn said...

I'm actually going to cheat and say two books I'm looking forward to...

1. Matched by Ally Condie. I've heard such great things about this and I don't read must dystopian but I want to start. Plus, I swear I had the exact same premise idea at one point so I'm super excited to read a book based on it! LOL

2. Finding Delilah by Sarah Ockler. I loooooved her debut and did a whole big 20-day countdown for it on my blog. So I'm super excited for this one, of course.

Jamie Burch said...

I guess I'm a lurker. Thank you for your advice during WriteOnCon!!!

The DUFF is one that I'm really looking forward to.

Precious said...

Congrats! I'm really really looking forward to...

Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick. Why? Two words: Patch Cipriano.

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I loved Cassie's way of writing. She really dwells on show-not-tell. The feelings of the characters can be felt so easily.

Riv Re said...
