  20. Hey Mel,

    I've done all of the above :) and i would like to win this book because i've read the first book and loved it, but havent got a chance to buy the 2nd and 3rd book yet :)

    and my facebook homepage :)

  21. I am a 53 year old mom of a teenage daughter and discovered the wonders of teen fantasy through her. They remind me of Saturday mornings spent reading Andrew Lang's Fairy books in bed. Lacking funds, I do hope I win the books - they sound great!

  22. My name is Betsy Hillendahl and I would love to read these books because I absolutely love to read. I have generously provided Barnes and Noble with a lot of money from buying books. I think the nook and all those readers are ok, but me personally I love my books. To have something to hold and carry around rather than download off of the computer is ehh for me...I love series with fae's, vampires, shape shifters and all that fascinating stuff. I love different authors takes on these subjects. I keep hearing about these books and planned on getting them, I saw the contest and got very ecstatic to learn I may be able to win them. I would love to add these books to my collection. If you don't believe I love books part of my library is posted in my pictures, and that bookshelf has now doubled. I really really hope to win these books. If not I still plan on reading them. Thank you!
    P.S. I have done everything to enter the contest.

  23. Maria Bitar
    Well I'm an avid reader, the past two years most of the things I've focused my attention on reading one cause I love the genre and two cause I aspire to write in that genre is of course Young Adult with or without Paranormal elements, particularly the ones with the Paranormal content; and I've heard a lot of good things about Kailin Gow, I have several of her series on my to-buy and to-read list after checking her out and I would love a chance to win the first three books in her Frost Series as I am a student (yes still need to get my Masters.. *sigh* lol) and as all students I too am tight on funds occasionally or should I say more like usually... hehe :)

  24. Hola nena!!!! Thanks for the contest!
    6-....Well I I would LOVE to win! I need these books you girls at the Bookshelf keep talking about them and I really, really want to read them!
