Keep checking your email over the next few days! Oh and CONGRATULATIONS to the winners! And I want to *hug* each and every one of you for your awesome comments (you guys made my DAY!!! My week and my month!!). Thank you all for taking the time to let me know YOUR favorite book. You can bet I will be adding a TON of them to my TBR list. If you loved ‘em, chances are, so will I.
Latest update: Congratulations to Debra who selected the Kindle Fire, and to Michelle (who selected Karina’s books), Amber who selected Colleen Hoover’s signed books, Tracie who has selected the Beautiful Disaster signed hard cover, Nancy selected the Beautiful Disaster and Love Unscripted paperback books- more winner updates to follow.

And here’s how we’re doin’ it!! First, here are the prizes:

PRIZES:

So here’s how it’s gonna go. I’m going to open this up to international, and choose NINE winners. The only one limited to US is the Kindle Fire, only ’cause I think you have to have a US account to use this Kindle. So if you are from another country other than US, and you can pick the Kindle Fire HD as a prize, it *may* not work for you.

I’ll choose nine separate winners, from first to ninth, and the first winner will get their pick out of the nine, 2nd, will get their pick of one of 8, and so on until there is one left for the ninth winner. All prizes rock, though, so this will be GREAT!

The winners will be contacted and once I receive a response back confirming the mailing address and available prize winner has selected, I will do the rest. :)

I would have to say “Shadow Fever” by Karen Marie Moning because it was my first real paranormal urban fantasy series and it was the final book. It started me on a quest of that genre that I now know that I simply adore!!

Nicky Tekelidis April 14, 2013 at 10:28 PM

Congrats on your 20,000 likes!!!! You have opened up my world of book reading! I’ve found so many books that I LOVE from your recommendations. Therefore I recommend your blog to everyone that I know who loves to read.
My favorite book of all time is…… Urghhhhhhhhh…. It’s so hard to pick just one……. Beautiful Disaster! Because I’ve read it over and over and love it more each time.
PS. I have you and your blog to thank for finding my favorite book :)

Yvonne April 14, 2013 at 10:28 PM

Fifty Shades of Grey caught me off guard and made me start reading love stories again like crazy. I didn’t know if I would be in to it or not but I loved it and couldn’t put it down. Twilight started me on the vampire fantasy kick so it comes in a close second. Looking forward to reading Beautiful Disaster next. I’m so glad I found you so you can tell me which good books to read next. Congratulations!!!

HEATHER ADKINS April 14, 2013 at 10:28 PM

Congrats on 20, 000 likes thats AWESOME!!!!!! Fifty Shades of Gray hands down is my #1 book!!!! Thanks for the chance ;)

Jennifer Krosevic April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

I would have to say that my all time favorite book is The Sweet Gum Tree. Nothing else quite comprares to that one. :-)

Rocky Kelley April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Collide by Gail McHugh was hands down the best book I’ve read ever! Had me on an emotional roller coaster. Congrats on your website. You ROCK!

Yara Greathouse April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

JUST ONE?! Ok., then I will have to say Twilight is my all time favorite and the book that made me an avid reader and saved me from depression after being laid off from work for the first and only time in my entire life. :)

Cherie M April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

I fell in love with reading when I picked up ” The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe”

liana April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Yay for passing 20, 000 likes! And wow…super hard to choose just one book… guess I’d have to say Ender’s Game.

Kerry April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

CONGRATS!!!

My favorite book is thoughtless!!

Allison Tucker April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Congrats!!! Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Love Mr. Darcy!!!

Skye April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

You stated even if it was from our childhood. And thinking back I can remember the book I got that started me in reading. I read it so many times and kept it close. It had been a gift from my Kindergarten teacher or as we called her ‘she who waddles like a penguin’. I think I still have the book in storage. It was the three billy goats gruff. Even when I was in the phase of not reading, it was the one book Id pick up and look at. I love for my books to have the feelings attached to them, not just the story inside, but the story on the outside.

Current fave, I could never truly decide. I read far to many novels to pick. But I suppose up high on my list is ‘In company of vampires’ by Katie MacAlister, simply because I LOVED the viking ghosts. Its a must read if you want/need/like to laugh.

Ruth Allen April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Congrats Maryse!!!!

My favorite book would be, “Lover Awakened” J.R. Ward… Ahhhh… Zsadist

paula April 14, 2013 at 10:29 PM

Catcher In The Rye is my favorite book. It got me through a lot of stuff.

Joanne Bucci April 14, 2013 at 10:30 PM

I guess I would have to say my all time favorite book would be Fifty Shades, just because it started me on my reading obsession. It has also led me to find your site which I use every week to guide me to my next book. I just went through my list and I have read approx 285 books in the last year and about 90% of them are from your blog. Thank you for providing my greatest escape and congrats on 20,000 likes!

Michaela April 14, 2013 at 10:34 PM

Congratulations Maryse!!!! You’ve recommended so many of my favorite books — THANK YOU!!!

My all-time favorite book would have to be the first book I remember my parents reading to me — Charlie the Caterpillar by Dom Deluise. I know it’s a basically a picture book, but we all have to start some where and when I was 3 years old this was the book that started my wonderful, crazy, cathartic obsession!! :)

I’m so excited for you! You’re so great at reviewing books and it’s not going unnoticed! Congrats again!!

Darci April 14, 2013 at 10:34 PM

Congratulations on your blog! I love it, and love seeing new reviews, as well as recommendations from other readers. I think my favorite book would have to be Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens because it was the first book I felt such a range of emotions! I had read others before this one, but I had never fallen into a book so deeply before.

Pam Perkins April 14, 2013 at 10:35 PM

Congrats on your 20,000+ likes. Wishing you the best on your next 20,000. I believe I’d have to say Twilight was the best. Or maybe it was because of that series that got me started reading over 100 books a year. Life is grand when you’re relaxing with a book in hand.

Terrie Griggs April 14, 2013 at 10:35 PM

Too HARD! Addictions are maddening!
Favorite Zombie Book Mira Grant Deadline

Paige Lovelace April 14, 2013 at 10:35 PM

My favorite book off all time started me out liking Morgan’s Mercenaries and that was Morgan’s Marriage! I have loved Lindsay Mckenna ever since. She also gave me the love of Native American beliefs and culture and I can never thank her enough for that!

Amy Matayo April 14, 2013 at 10:36 PM

It feels a little silly to admit since it’s been a looong time since I first read it (more than two decades–yikes) but my favorite book is still Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret. I can’t think of my childhood without thinking of that book.

Sussy April 14, 2013 at 10:36 PM

Beautiful Disaster! My all time favorite. Would love a Hard copy Please! :)

Jorie April 14, 2013 at 10:36 PM

Cheers to another 20,000!

Tricia F April 14, 2013 at 10:36 PM

Congrats! I would have to say Beautiful Disaster, as it was one of the first books I read to start my reading addiction. That book is what brought me to your page, with the” What to read after Beautiful Disaster” so how could it not be my favorite!

Stacey Lamont April 14, 2013 at 10:37 PM

Congrats to you, Maryse!! This is such a testimony to all of the wonderful reading and friendships you’ve helped to develop through your blog. It’s an honor to be able to celebrate 20,000 likes with you! My book archive wouldn’t be nearly as amazing if I hadn’t found your blog and devoured your suggestions one after another. And while my bank account suffers, from the bottom of my heart I thank you for everything because many of these books got me through some rough times in my real life. Not to mention giving me plenty of book boyfriends to pine over :)

I look forward to watching you continue to capture readers with your honest reviews, wonderful suggestions, and all-around love of reading.

My favorite book of recent years has to be Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley. This is what changed me over from paranormal to contemporary romance and I haven’t looked back since!

Thank you for again for all that you do, Maryse! You rock!

Maxine Sanchez April 14, 2013 at 10:39 PM

My absolute most favorite book would have to be Beautiful Disaster. I can read the book more than once and still fall in love with it.

My favorite book has to be Consequences, by Aleatha Romig. The emotions and anxiety that book out me through. O. M. G. I was torn up for weeks. Couldn’t eat. Couldn’t sleep. Cried constantly. Never has a book done that to me before. What a mindfck. I rec it to everyone. Any book that can completely consume me, has me for life.

Kristin April 14, 2013 at 10:40 PM

Oh wow, my favorite ONE book? O.o. Well I’d say the Fever series (thanks to you) and my favorite ONE was probably the last one.

Ashley F April 14, 2013 at 10:41 PM

“I Capture the Castle” by Dodie Smith

Cynthia April 14, 2013 at 10:41 PM

Anne of Green Gables, my favorite book ever. I used to read the series over and over, and now the best part is that I get to share it with my 14 yr old daughter. That along with Colleen Hoover’s books. Congrats!

Shelley G. April 14, 2013 at 10:42 PM

Wtg on 20,000 likes!!!! My favorite book is Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris. It’s the 4th book in the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Series. I’ve read that book at least 10 times. I love the “amnesia Eric Northman” *swoon* and it set soooo many things in motion! <3

Nina April 14, 2013 at 10:42 PM

My favorite book I have ever read is To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Maybe it’s because I had to do so much research on it for an English class, but I love that book and can’t wait until my kids are old enough to understand it so I can share it with them. Hopefully at least one of them will love it as much as I do!

Trinity April 14, 2013 at 10:42 PM

To Kill a Mockingbird is still my favorite though The Sea of Tranquility is quite close.

Michelle Y April 14, 2013 at 10:43 PM

Due to the amount of times I have read this book I would have to say Pride & Prejudice

Congrats!

Kimberley C April 14, 2013 at 10:43 PM

For me, I’d have to say The Vampire Armand by Anne Rice. I can’t even count how many times I’ve read it, but it’s been one of my go-to reads since 10 years ago. :)

Jessica April 14, 2013 at 10:43 PM

Proud to be one of the 20,000!! My favorite book is Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens.

Arley w April 14, 2013 at 10:44 PM

Congrats! I LOVE reading and have so many favorites but I’m going to have to go with Harry Potter!

Jen V April 14, 2013 at 10:44 PM

So tough to pick one because I’ve read so many amazing books thanks to your suggestions, but it all started with Fifth Shades of Grey! Congrats Maryse!

Vivian April 14, 2013 at 10:44 PM

Cassandra Hicks April 14, 2013 at 10:44 PM

Congrats and thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Mandy April 14, 2013 at 10:44 PM

Congratulations! Fifty Shades started my obsession with this genre and now my favorite is Collide! I’ve read both too many times to count :)

Amanda April 14, 2013 at 10:45 PM

So excited to have recently found your site. We have many similar tastes in books and now my “to read” list has grown ……which is so exciting! I love your reviews and just finished The Host which I LOVED! As for my favorite books….they are books similar to The Host like the Harry Potter series and Twilight and Hunger Games. I love it when an author can create a world or something that has never existed before. I find this so impressive and I am awed by their creativity. But, I can’t pick a favorite ….it usually is whatever I am reading at the time cause I can’t seem to put the books down! Thanks again for a great site! And congratulations!! :)

Leanne April 14, 2013 at 10:45 PM

Congrats!!!! I would say my favorite book is Safe Harbor by Christine Feehan, I love the Drake Sisters. :)

Bianca April 14, 2013 at 10:45 PM

Amy Rose April 14, 2013 at 10:45 PM

Sarah S. April 14, 2013 at 10:46 PM

What a fun way to celebrate! My favorite book happens to be from my younger years, but there has been so much to learn from it as I’ve gotten older…it’s the Giving Tree.

Angel April 14, 2013 at 10:46 PM

Megan Harts book Deeper is my all time fav

Marie Anthony April 14, 2013 at 10:46 PM

Super congrats Maryse!!!!! Sooooo cool!!! It’s REALLY hard to pick a favorite, but I’m going to go with Firestarter by Stephen King. It was my first paranormal book ever — read it in middle school for the first time (looooooong ago lol). I still have that battered old paperback, and I re-read it at least once every year!! :)

Tammi April 14, 2013 at 10:46 PM

Congratulations Maryse!! My favorite book is Gone With the Wind.

Selina April 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Colleen Hickey April 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

My favorite book is The Phantom of the Opera, but I also like books with magical creatures, mostly goblins.

Danielle G April 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

WOW 20k likes is really HUGE!

Thank you for choosing to donate to March of Dimes. My daughter was born 9 weeks early and I truly believe that without organizations like the March of Dimes bringing awareness and research about she would not be here today, especially not as healthy as she is!

My favorite book of all time has to be They Cage The Animals at Night by Jennings Michael Birch… the fact that its a true story really just gets to me. Though… The Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman is a close second since I became a mom!

Whitney Baer April 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Congrats on another kickass milestone. My favorite book goes clear back to childhood… “the giving tree.” I love how this book shows that you have to work hard to get what you want in life <3

Megan April 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

As a kid & teen, when I got in trouble my parents would not ground me from the TV or the Phone, I was grounded from READING!! My parents would take away my BOOKS!! I’ve always had a love for reading. The book I chose is the one that started my love of books & used bk stores. I was 7 when I read it. SHADOWLAND by PETER STRAUB. It’s not a book for a child but by 5th grade I was reading at a college level. It weaves an amazing tale & I can still picture scenes from the bk & how I pictured them in my head. If you haven’t read it, I definitely would recommend picking it up & let the story take you away!”

Without a doubt Thoughtless is my all time absolute favorite book! Just call me Mrs Kyle. Kellen to me is like Travis to you Maryse! I was never a reader. Hated reading. Then my friend practically tied me up and made me read 50 Shades. After which I had no idea what to read next because at that point I was hooked! I Googled “What to read after 50 Shades” and there you were Maryse. You led me right to my best book boyfriend ever. After that I followed your suggestions and plowed through everything from SC Stephens to Tarryn Fischer to Collen Hoover to Alice Clayton and the list goes on and on. This all started last summer and now according to Goodreads, I’m at 153 books read to date. Congrats on your 20,000 Maryse!!!! May your numbers keep climbing sister :-D

sarah April 14, 2013 at 11:00 PM

Nikki April 14, 2013 at 11:05 PM

I love every book I read, but I gotta go with Twilight. it made me fall in love with reading again and now I read about 4 books a week! I’m a one-click-aholic and there is just no stopping it!

Tiffany Nickerson-McQuade April 14, 2013 at 11:07 PM

My favorite book of all time.. Hhmm, thats tough. I guess it would have to be ” The Sword of Shannara” by Terry Brooks. Thats the first book I ever read in the fantasy/sci-fi genre. I was hooked ever since! My newest favs are L . K. Hamilton and K. Moning. But if it werent for mr. Brooks, I’d have never known such books even existed!

Audrey K. April 14, 2013 at 11:09 PM

Michelle April 14, 2013 at 11:09 PM

The Opportunist is a favorite of mine. It is hard to narrow it down to just one because there are others that I liked just as much. The reason I chose this one is because the plot was so unusual and well written.

LaVonne Nimrick April 14, 2013 at 11:10 PM

My favorite book is from when I was a child..The Witches.

Amy Doyle April 14, 2013 at 11:10 PM

Niamh Harnett April 14, 2013 at 11:14 PM

The Complete Tales of Winnie The Pooh- this book thought me the meaning of friendship and one of my favourite memories of being a child was the exasperated sound my father would make when I would request it each and every bedtime :P

Tanya @ Rantings of a Reading Addict April 14, 2013 at 11:19 PM

20,000 likes is amazing! Congratulations! Ok, favorite book. Do you know what a difficult question you ask all of us crazy book addicts? It’s like picking a favorite child! I’m going to narrow it down to a series and say the Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward. That’s as slimmed down as I can get I’m afraid! Letttt’s PARTY!

Shannon Fuhrman April 14, 2013 at 11:19 PM

20 k..oh my gosh congrats!! My all time favorite book would have to be A Lotus Grows in the Mud by Goldie Hawn

Brooke S. April 14, 2013 at 11:20 PM

Say Goodnight, Gracie by Julie Reece Deaver is my favorite book of all time. I have read this book probably 7 or 8 times, especially when I was a teenager. I used to read it once a year. I absolutely love it… hmmm… maybe I’ll go read it again hehehe

Amanda Ronan April 14, 2013 at 11:21 PM

Congratulations on 20,000 followers!! My favorite book is Of Mice and Men.

Sarah Dell April 14, 2013 at 11:21 PM

My absolute favorite book for going on eight years now is Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I worked in my high school library and one day freshman year when I didn’t have anything to read, I thought about what I “should” read. I knew we used Pride and Prejudice for an assignment senior year so I checked it out and decided to read it. I have since nearly memorized the book, own nearly every copy of the movies, bought the commemorative stamps, played the facebook games, and read more fan fic and spin offs than I can count. I still like other books, some a great deal, but if ever I go on vacation or cannot think of what to read, I come back to this book. Many people have asked me why I love it so much, and in truth I can’t really say. I’m a sucker for a happy ending, and Pride and Prejudice has no shortages of that, but many books end happily. I’m a history buff and love historical fiction, but again there is plenty of it out there. All I know is that this book spoke to me and it is mine, no matter how many joking rolled eyes I get from my college roommate when I try to fit another book into our bookshelf, or when I bug her about never finishing the book and relying on the movies.
P.S. Congrats Maryse!!

erin April 14, 2013 at 11:21 PM

Congrats lady!! I have been a fan since you had like 6,000ish likes and it has been great to watch the following grow. Your page is the best sister. My favorite book is a new one, but boy..Oh..boy did it knock me off my feet. BLIND OBESSION BY ELLA FRANK.

Kyla Sanders April 14, 2013 at 11:25 PM

This is hard. But if I think about it my favorite experience with a book was bridge to tarabithia when I was just a little one. I soaked my pillow in tears and it was so magical that it inspired in me a love of reading as a child that never faded. It truly touched my soul.

Christina H. April 14, 2013 at 11:26 PM

20,000!? That is HUGE, congrats!!! You have helped me many a times discover new book territory. But OMG, just one favorite? That’s just crazy talk right there :) I feel like I’m cheating on so many book boyfriends and fabulous authors that I’ve gotten to know by saying this, but if it weren’t for Fifty Shades, I would not know the world of reading and all the awesome peole that come with it, I guess they would probably top my list.

Shannon Maher April 14, 2013 at 11:27 PM

Sylwia T April 14, 2013 at 11:31 PM

Angie Hocking April 14, 2013 at 11:32 PM

Congrats, Maryse, you Rock Star! <3 your blog, your style, your taste in books and book boyfriends and your sense of humor :)

Favorite book, you ask? Well, this one managed to bump my childhood fave out of the top position: The Edge of Never by Jessica Redmerski

jennzah April 14, 2013 at 11:32 PM

my absolute one favourite book in the entire world is STARDUST by Neil Gaiman. <3 no ifs, ands, or buts. it's such a beautiful story and I LOVE IT.

Shawnee April 14, 2013 at 11:32 PM

My favorite EVER is Passion’s Whisper! I have NEVER had the reading adventure like this since reading your blog. As a full time working mom, thanks for the recommendations that take me away for some serious me time!!! Congrats!!!

Laura Shuman April 14, 2013 at 11:33 PM

Wow! That’s so Amazing! 20,000… Could you ever imagine when you first started this blog, you would have so many following? Congratulations!!! I’m so happy I found your blog actually. After reading Fifty I needed recommendations for something to read. I moved out from the rat race of the city & finally returned to my love for reading. Now, it’s an addiction! I don’t think I have an all time favorite. Every book that has something in it that touches my soul is a favorite in some way. One that is a favorite I found on your blog… Consequences… Thank you for helping me find my passion again in reading!

Gwen April 14, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Congrats Maryse on the 20,000 Likes!! Woo Hoo!! Thank you for the giveaway! I have to say “Fifty Shades of Grey” by E.L. James. I read them 4 times and have not stopped reading since.

Lisa April 14, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Congrats on 20,000! Pride and Prejudice is by far my all time favorite.

Lacey April 14, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Congrats! You are truly deserving! I would have to go with The Opportunist. It was such an interesting read, I appreciated it for so many reasons! Completely mold breaking.

Laurynne April 14, 2013 at 11:34 PM

Well Done Maryse! This is an awesome giveaway to celebrate an amazing milestone :D I’ve been dropping by unexpectedly way before I started up my own little blog corner – So *fist pump* and I love reading your blog :D

Stefany Thode April 14, 2013 at 11:35 PM

Congrats on your huge accomplishment!

Hmmm, favor book ever? That is horribly unfair to make me choose. Lol. If I had to say one book it would be To Kill a Mockingbird. It is the one book I have read several times (something I don’t do) and not complained about it. ;-)

Antonette April 14, 2013 at 11:35 PM

I’m too old for this book and I have read so many other good books since, but my all-time favorite would have to be Princess in Love by Meg Cabot. That book was swoon worthy back in the day and it showed me how much fun books can be!

Congratulations Maryse!!!

Brie April 14, 2013 at 11:35 PM

Congratulations!! So amazing :) I would have to say that Beautiful Disaster is my favorite!

Kat April 14, 2013 at 11:36 PM

Paige April 14, 2013 at 11:37 PM

Congratulations!!! Favorite book that triggered my love of worlds beyond my own: Jane Erye at age 12. That book opened the floodgates to a book a week and my Kindle, along with your site has sent me totally on a crazy train of reading and peeking into the lives of new characters. I LOVE YOU!! (that’s not weird at all :/).

Shiela April 14, 2013 at 11:37 PM

Lea April 14, 2013 at 11:37 PM

Oh my gosh, this is so awesome! Wow, 20,000! Love your blog…Everything you recommend is on my TBR lost.
My favorite book since as long as I can remember is Great Expectations by Dickens. I guess I’ve always had a think for an angst filled love story.

Dawn Stanton April 14, 2013 at 11:38 PM

Congratulations!!!! That is one hell of an achievement!!
I don’t know if I can pick just 1 book as a favourite. I get engrossed in every book I read and feel sad when I finish every single one of them. But you have forced my hand and I have to say “ACHERON” by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

Katy April 14, 2013 at 11:38 PM

Congrats, I love your blog!!! Favorite book I guess would be Slammed. So hard to pick.

Congrats to you and thanks for all you do!!

Mary-Anne Castro April 14, 2013 at 11:47 PM

Congrats! Picking one book is sooo hard…I’m not sure which one to choose. But one book has always been a part of me ever since I read it in college. It’s The Mustard Seed by Joseph Galdon.

Anyway, I want to thank you for helping us in choosing the books that are awesome. Most of the books that I have read are from your recommendations and reviews. Thank you again! Love you dear!

Dana Vitale April 14, 2013 at 11:47 PM

Amanda Phillips April 14, 2013 at 11:52 PM

Reading as many as ten books a week on a good week keeps me from having absolute favorites because there are just to many to choose from but… Almost Perfect is a book I read in my early early teens and from there I fell in love with reading everything I could get my hands on. So I’m going with Almost Perfect.

Danielle O April 14, 2013 at 11:54 PM

Beautiful Disaster (:

Congrats! That is so exciting and I absolutely love your blog. I have read sooo many wonderful books because of you so thank you! My favorite all time boom?? Hmmmmm I’m going to go with Trapped by Kelly Matillo, simply because that’s me, I wrote it and although I have no experience in writing, it was truly the best experience of my life. I would love for you to review it, but go easy on me, first time author, and it was self published.

Susan E April 15, 2013 at 12:11 AM

Ah…. too many books. Once you’ve read hundreds it’s like picking which finger on your hand you can go without. Very difficult. But if I must pick, it would be The Kite Runner.

Nicky April 15, 2013 at 12:14 AM

Definitely The Sea of Tranquility. You know a book hits the spot, when your heart is breaking for the characters, but you can’t stop smiling because you are enjoying it so much. Thanks so much for giving us all a chance to experience that.

Nicole April 15, 2013 at 12:17 AM

It’s incredibly hard for me to pick a favorite book of all time… having to narrow it down, I’d have to say The Phantom Tollbooth will always hold a special place in my heart. I re-read it yearly because I love it so much!

Frankie Bryant April 15, 2013 at 12:17 AM

I would have to go back to my childhood & say the Velveteen Rabbit, cry every time & even bought a copy for my kids. One of my most recent favorites is Ten Tiny Breaths ;) Too many awesome books to choose from!

Kassandra M April 15, 2013 at 12:37 AM

My favorite book would have to be Magic Strikes by Ilona Andrews I love the Kate Daniels series in-general but that book is personally what I think is the best of them. I don’t normally like that genre, but that series just sucked me into it, I love Curran and Kate’s banter it almost reminds me of cat and bones.

Krisha Joy April 15, 2013 at 12:37 AM

Wow Maryse! Congratulations! You’re right. This is soo worth celebrating for. I found your blog years before. Your amazing reviews makes me giggle all the time because its true and that just hooked me. It made me go back to this blog site every time I can to see what you were up to. Anyway I’m just glad for your blog’s succes and it’s waaay well deserved.

If I were to choose my favorite book of all time, that would be one of Gena Showalter’s Alien Huntress series, Dark Taste of Rapture. Okay. That was probably one of the hardest decisions of my life. ALL of the books in this series are amaaaazing. It makes you forget everything. lol. Pinky swear :)

Debbie Szabo April 15, 2013 at 12:38 AM

Gosh that’s hard! I would have the to my first serious favorite book would have been The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton.

Mellisa S. April 15, 2013 at 12:44 AM

** “If it could only be ONE(!!) book it would be….” SHADOWLAND by PETER STRAUB. It’s the book that started my life long obsession with escaping reality, by helping me through a difficult childhood, an abusive marriage and then recovering & regaining my life back. This was the first book I read all night by using my night light (hehe) because I couldn’t put it down!!

Now, I wanted to say Maryse THANK YOU!! I’ve discovered many awesome books thanks to you & the readers who post here. I check every Tuesday to see what books come out. When I’m at a loss as to what to read I dig through the old blogs about series, books & reviews. Recently I emailed RAINE MILLER cuz Google bks only had bk 2&3 listed for sale & let her know I found her here. Today I texted my sis your site address so she could look up a book. What I’m trying to say is that YOU & YOUR website have become part of the reading culture. Because of
your hard work on this site readers like me, my friends & family have a go to place for our reading obsessions!! You’re AWESOME!! You’re dedicated & we all luuve you *muah*

**PS.. I only have internet access from my android. I got this phone because Google Books came already downloaded to it!! This phone drives me crazy but at least I can read from it!! (Yay) However, it’s hard to email, post comments & access websites sometimes from it!! The FIRST comment I tried to leave said there was an error. So, I’m trying again!! Hopefully this works!!

Jessica Westover April 15, 2013 at 12:47 AM

Congratulations!! My current favorite book is The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene.

Michelle April 15, 2013 at 12:50 AM

Wow, I have accumulated nearly 2 pages in good reads where I’ve rated the books 5 stars, so to pick – wow…. that is a challenge. Hopeless by Colleen Hoover really stuck with me (in a serious manner) but Wallbanger was just so wittingly written, that’s up there too…
Congrats Maryse – a great milestone.
Cheers

Kristin Kellogg April 15, 2013 at 12:51 AM

First of all, congrats Maryse! I love this blog. You always have some good books to recommend. And thank you for the honest reviews that you provide. For this I’m at ease that the next book that I’ll read is something that I would enjoy and worth it.
As for my favorite book, it is hard to pick one coz there are so much books that I love. But I have to say Twilight. Not only for the obvious reason that it was really a good book and the story is spectacular, it also changed my life in a lot of ways. I met a lot of amazing people and new friends, it got me into reading books again and I also found this blog. For that I am grateful with that book.
Congrats again! You totally deserve it. :)

Rachel April 15, 2013 at 12:59 AM

Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. Congrats!

melanie marsh April 15, 2013 at 1:04 AM

My favorite book of all time is from when I was a kid. It’s called “Socks for Supper” by Jack Kent. It’s about a farmer who trades cheese and milk to a couple in exchange for socks that the wife makes despite the fact that the farmer really doesn’t need any more socks. This is one of the first books I remember reading as a kid, and It has such a positive message about helping other people.
Congratulations on such an awesome milestone! I’m hope you know how much you mean to your followers and how much they appreciate you! Congrats again!

Kirsty April 15, 2013 at 1:04 AM

Karla Hardiman April 15, 2013 at 1:14 AM

I’ve gotta say Little Women. It’s been thirteen years since I first read it and Istill get emotional every time.

Kirsty Lander April 15, 2013 at 1:14 AM

Congratulations Maryse, that is so incredible. 20 thousand! Wow. It is so impossible to choose one favourite but I think I’ll have to say Fifty Shades of Grey seeing as, like most people, that kick started my love of reading. I have read so many incredible ones since though. <3

Mary April 15, 2013 at 1:16 AM

My all time favorite book is PS I Love You. I read it while in college. It was the first book that made me laugh out loud and cry in public. I was once on the BART train and crying during a part in the book, when an older gentleman turned around and said “honey, no boy is worth your tears. Why are you crying?” I had to laugh a bit and explain to him that a boy didn’t make me cry, a really great book has. He just chuckled and nodded then turned back around. I’ll never forget that. I’ve read the book several times and have gotten many friends hooked on the book. Even after the movie came out. :-)

Sharon April 15, 2013 at 1:16 AM

Beautiful disaster

Elizabeth Di Benedetto April 15, 2013 at 1:16 AM

Samantha S April 15, 2013 at 1:25 AM

Congrats Maryse! I go through cycles where I get stuck on a book and re-read about once a month. This has happened with To Kill A Mockingbird, all of the Harry Potter books, and my current obsession, Beautiful Disaster (thanks to your recommendation)!

Julie Cross April 15, 2013 at 1:25 AM

I would have to say The Princess Bride. Loved the movie as a kid, and when I read the book, I loved the story even more. Now I always usually love the books more than movies because I do a better job picturing it in my head.

Nancy Ly April 15, 2013 at 1:28 AM

Congrats Maryse! Thanks so much for all these wonderful book recommendation! My all time favorite book has got to be the fifty shades trilogy because it got me back into reading!

Kelli Stanley April 15, 2013 at 1:29 AM

Congrats! Your blog is so awesome! My favorite book in past years is Alicia: My Story by Alicia Appleman. Its a non fiction autobiography about a girl surviving the holocaust. Its gut wrenching, insperational, heartbreaking and so many other emotions. I have never been able to read it without taking breaks because it gets so intense. Since getting a kindle last years (and then discovering your blog!) I have become a romance fan and I love beautiful disaster and the chocolate lovers series.

Pamela Vizcarra April 15, 2013 at 1:31 AM

Claudia April 15, 2013 at 1:33 AM

My favorite book of all time that I can read over and over and over again is….Love you forever by: Robert Munsch.
My mom read it to me as a baby, I read it to my daughters and its inspired them to pick up books they like and read to me. The book itself has created fond memories for me and I hope that it will create fond memories for my daughters as well. As the book says: I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, As long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.
So, so true…

Alison Michael April 15, 2013 at 1:36 AM

Know about your site on where to go find good books. I read so much having an all time favorite book is so tough. So instead of picking my all time favorite recent read I will go back to my childhood .
I will love you forever and always… (guess its I will love you forever)
Favorite children’s book and an older classic is The Outsiders

First one in the series but still my favorite. And I just got done reading it for the hundredth time it seems.
Congrats on 20,000. How awesomely exciting!!!!

Jennifer Valencia April 15, 2013 at 1:54 AM

Batool Hosain April 15, 2013 at 2:15 AM

First – congratulations!!! You deserve each and every one of those likes!! The amount of books I’ve been able to wonderfully experience because of you and your reviews is immense! Can’t thank you enough!

Though I LOVE books like Beautiful Disaster and Hopeless (OMG, it gets me Every. Single. Time.) my favorite book of all time would be Sideways Stories from Wayside School. A book I would frequently read from middle school even until now! It’s so funny, if I ever need a good laugh I can pick it up, it never gets old!

Yee! Hope I win! Again, thanks for all the work you put into this blog – it’s paid off!! :)

Hard hard hard question … Beloved Vampire by Joey W Hill

Estephanie M April 15, 2013 at 2:22 AM

Congrats!! Beautiful Disaster will always have a special place in my heart :)

Patrina Sibona April 15, 2013 at 2:23 AM

It would have to be “The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle” The first time I read that book I wanted to be her. I loved to read by that point (I think I was eight when I read it) but, that book really did it for me.

Shelly April 15, 2013 at 2:29 AM

Congratulations! That is pretty huge :) This is definitely one of the best review sites I’ve found. You always keep my book pile growing higher & higher!

My favourite book….that’s a hard one because Beautiful Disaster, Thoughtless, Slammed and Flat Out Love are all pretty much tied for me. Um…..ok I think it will be Slammed by Colleen Hoover because it’s so different and I always seem to think about when I think about the best books I’ve read.

Natalie R April 15, 2013 at 2:33 AM

Mel by Liz berry read this first when l was about 16 and still get it out to

Kathy April 15, 2013 at 2:47 AM

Congrats on your 20,000 likes> It does not surprise me because your blog is infectious and I mean that is a good way. In the last year I have discovered so many great books because of you.So many authors, never enough books ~ Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover, SC Stephens, Tara Sivec, Samantha Young, R.L Mathewson and the list goes on and on. Even when I heard about a book from another source I fact checked it against your blog~ kind of become my Book Bible.
My favorite book I have read that came from your blog hands down is Beautiful Disaster. Followed by Thoughtless series. My too funny award is a tie goes to Tara Sivec and RL Matthewon for Choclate Lovers and Anything I have read by RL so far.
Thanks to you for putting such effort into your blog

Kaycee Reads April 15, 2013 at 2:48 AM

CONGRATS ON the big 20K!
You’ll be at 50k in no time. I swear, every time I check out your Facebook page, the numbers always increase.

Favourite book? So many to choose from but I would have to say Sempre – I’m still in love with Carmine and that story really had me hooked.

kassidee April 15, 2013 at 2:50 AM

I would have to say undeniable never has a book had me on the edge.thanks maryce for all your recs.

Carole April 15, 2013 at 2:56 AM

I think my favorite book of all time, that I always go back to when I’m feeling the need for something great is Beyond the Highland Mist by KMM. (Well actually the whole series!)
It’s funny because I’ve tried other romance series set in that time period and didn’t even feel a twinge of ‘the love’. There’s just something about THOSE group of highlanders that make me happy :)
It’s probably why I’m sooo ‘Team Christian’ when it comes to the Dani O’Malley books :)

Nicole April 15, 2013 at 2:57 AM

I would have to say “Fifty Shades of Grey”. I was never into reading much until this series came along and I got hooked to Romance novels. I found your blog too after searching “what to read after Fifty Shades of Grey”. You rock Maryse! This surely is big. Congratulations!

Melissa Chavez April 15, 2013 at 3:08 AM

Dang!!! That is alot of likes. But then who wouldn’t love your FB page and blog?? I just love it. I would have to say that as of right now my favorite book is Collide by Gail McHugh. I loved the story and just could not belive the ending. I just about had a heart attack. Congrats on all the likes!! Because of you I have found sooo many Authors that I would have never had the chance to read. So Thank you, thank you!!

Tracey April 15, 2013 at 3:09 AM

I would have to say Fifty Shades of Grey! These books are what started my reading journey….and now thanks to your awesome blog I have read hundreds more! Love your blog Maryse and congratulation on 20,000 likes! Just awesome!

Denice April 15, 2013 at 3:12 AM

Congratulations!!

The Little House series holds a special place in my heart.

From this last year, One Week Girlfriend and Second Chance Boyfriend swept me away!

Jem April 15, 2013 at 3:18 AM

Probably would have to be.. The Collide Series by Shelly Crane. Underestimated and awesome <3

Esther April 15, 2013 at 3:20 AM

Joanne cowan April 15, 2013 at 3:28 AM

Congratulations on 20000 likes!
Thanks for making your giveaway international :)
It’s so hard to pick just one favourite book, I have read so many great books in the last 6 months never mind how many I’ve read in my life! I think I’m going to go with Hopeless by Colleen Hoover with The Edge of Never a close second

Clare April 15, 2013 at 3:29 AM

Congratulations!! I love your blog and fb page!!

I don’t think I have a favourite book, I love SO many! But the 50 shades series got me really into reading, and because of the twilight books I found your blog and all the wonderful books you recommend, so I guess either of those series are pretty special! x

B Palmer April 15, 2013 at 3:33 AM

For me, it all started with Fifty Shades…so I have to say thats my fav!

Ofelia April 15, 2013 at 3:34 AM

Donnajoe April 15, 2013 at 3:35 AM

My all time favorite would be Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens, I am absolutely swoon on Kellan Kyle and adore hs band mates.

jovana April 15, 2013 at 3:37 AM

Congrats! What an accomplishment! I could never pick just one book to be my favorite, so I guess I’ll pick the series that started my obsession with reading again. BDB by JR Ward. This is one series that I hope never ends!

Alex Danvers April 15, 2013 at 3:37 AM

I think it has to be Thoughtless by SC Stephens which I only knew existed through your blog! I first read 50 shades trilogy, Twilight saga, then beautiful disaster and thoughtless and haven’t looked back!! X

Kim Riddell April 15, 2013 at 3:43 AM

Since I really became an obsessive reader after twighlight…this would ne my answer. :) there have been many books I love.

Melissa April 15, 2013 at 3:44 AM

Congratulations on all your likes-I love your blog and I’m always telling people about it, even random people I meet in the book section at target!

Jennifer April 15, 2013 at 3:45 AM

I would also have to give my fav book to Fifty Shades because it turned me onto reading. I used to hate reading all through school and thought people who read for pleasure just had no clue, but now I’m addicted that a druggee and all I can think about is my next “hit”. hehe

Melissa April 15, 2013 at 3:51 AM

Opps forgot to list my all time fav-have to go with JR Wards brotherhood series followed by beautiful disaster. Ive gotta win something sooner or later and would love love love a kindle!!! As always thanks again for all your hard work!

keighley April 15, 2013 at 3:55 AM

Oh Gah, so TOUGH to choose just one book, so Im going way back to my teenage years. Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire.

AngelaL April 15, 2013 at 3:57 AM

The only books I’ve ever read twice were the Lord of the Rings trilogy books by J.R.R. Tolkien – so I’d have to say that series is my all time favourite. Thanks for the chance to win Maryse.

Betul April 15, 2013 at 4:03 AM

This is so difficult I LOVE so many books, that also have a special place in my heart. One of my all time favorite series are Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland and Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane

Lyssa April 15, 2013 at 4:04 AM

Almost Heaven by Judith McKnaught. Congrats to you on 20k likes!!!!

Aleksandra April 15, 2013 at 4:05 AM

Hmmm I don’t have a favourite book. Once I read “asking a bookworm to oick favourite book is asking a mother to pick favourite child. Impossible”
But I can tell you which book was among my favourites of 2012. Well I have two that shares the first place: Back To You by Priscilla Glenn & The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay.

But my favourite book (well it’s a story) of my childhood is The Little Matchgirl. I remember like it was yesterday when my mom read it to me. The story is ao sad, heartbreaking that I couldn’t forget it for a long time.

Ps: congrats on your likes <3

Serena April 15, 2013 at 4:07 AM

Congrats!!! Thanks to you and your awesome blog, my TBR list is a mile long:-). To many wonderful books to read and not enough time in the day to read all of them. All time favorite book right now is Walking disaster. I just love Travis:-)

Lori April 15, 2013 at 4:15 AM

Well how can you really just pick one. After years of reading nothing but nursing school text books, I guess I’ll go with the one that got me back into reading…Fifty Shades. And just so you know Maryse, I am holding you personally responsible for causing Travis, Christian, Kellan, Gideon, etc., to dominate my dreams (occasionally my fiancé gets through…wink). You’ve consumed my life (in one of those good ways) since I MUST read EVERY single book you ever mention, and for that, I thank you, I love your blog and Congrats on the 20,000!

Pamela Patterson April 15, 2013 at 4:17 AM

Hi Maryse, i’m from Portugal and I love your site, I’ve came across it by chance about a year ago and i just want to say thank you for sharing such amazing books. I have to say that initially I wasn’t that interested in paranormal but then I saw your review of the Experiment in Terror series and I was hooked! It was difficult to choose just one book, i just want to mention Karina Halle, S.C. Stephens and Tracey Garvis Graves. I’m just starting my own book blog so thank you so much for the inspiration.

Tammy M April 15, 2013 at 5:17 AM

Wow! Favorite? I have been thinking about that word and what it really means. The book that has touched me the deepest and ripped through my emotions? Or the one that was the most endearing story to me? Or the fondest memory from childhood? Or the book that made me a reader as an adult? WOW tough to decide which is considered favorite.

I can not choose Thoughtless although it effected me more than any other book I have ever read. It actually kept me from reading for a couple weeks because it turned me upside down.

My favorite book is Walking Disaster but I of course could not have had that as my favorite without first reading Beautiful Disaster so with this question as with my life. It is complicated! LOL

Patty April 15, 2013 at 5:23 AM

Since I only started reading last year (at 45 yrs old), all the books I’ve read are from your blog , I would have to go with BeautifulDisaster. Thank for opening a new world up for me.

C Davis April 15, 2013 at 5:24 AM

Hello and Congrats! My favorite books are the Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling.

Mary April 15, 2013 at 5:25 AM

At the very moment Blind Obsession, my favorite.

Beverly April 15, 2013 at 5:26 AM

I guess I would have to say something from my childhood, something that made me into the reader that I am. So Matilda by Rohl Dahl. I’ve always loved that book and how magical it is. I’m definitely going to make my kids into readers (whenever I have them).

Julie April 15, 2013 at 5:26 AM

Congrats! My fav book is Great Gatsby.

Hollie Hunter April 15, 2013 at 5:30 AM

Congratulations! Hard to pick just one. Loved Outer Banks by Anne Rivers Siddons. I’ve read it so many times!

Brandi F April 15, 2013 at 5:30 AM

Congrats on the likes Maryse! My favorite book is Thoughtless and the reason I choose this one is because it started my obsession with Indie authors, it was my very first Indie read back before S.C. Stephens was picked up by a publisher and I have been hooked ever since!

Nathalie T April 15, 2013 at 5:31 AM

My favorite book of all times… I chance My mind all the time, but I love the Scarlet Pimpenel by Baroness Orczy.

Debbie April 15, 2013 at 5:31 AM

I am still so in love with Travis that I want to say Walking Disaster (almost called in sick to work to finish it!). But lifetime, I have to go with the book that got me hooked on romances, Gone With the Wind and original bad boy Rhett Butler.

kimbau April 15, 2013 at 5:33 AM

Congratulations! It is so hard to pick just one but I will have to say Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- I have read and re-read that series so many times and I just love the final book in the series. I used to read constantly in my youth but then I got away from reading for enjoyment as I went through high school and college- HP series really brought me back to reading for me again.

Coco April 15, 2013 at 5:35 AM

Congradulations Maryse !!! My favorite book would definetly have to be GOLDAN DYNASTY by Kristen Ashley :)

Kimberly Donovan April 15, 2013 at 5:36 AM

Alanna April 15, 2013 at 5:55 AM

Carol Dobijs April 15, 2013 at 5:56 AM

S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders was the first book I felt so sad to be finished reading it that as soon as I finished it, I started reading it again. That was back in 6th grade.

Heather @ Red Headed Bookworm April 15, 2013 at 5:57 AM

WOW, 20,000 that’s a great milestone!!! You deserve it. I love your facebook page and blog. I always find great books to read! Thanks for doing what you do!

My fave book….that’s such a hard question. One book I could read over and over would be Dark Lover by JR Ward, cause it introduced me to the brothers. Thanks so much!!!

Lori April 15, 2013 at 5:58 AM

Well how can you chose just one. After years of only reading nursing school text books, I suppose I have to pick the one that got me back into reading again…Fifty Shades. And just so you know Maryse, I hold you personally responsible for causing Travis, Christian, Gideon, Kellan, etc., to invade my dreams every night (occasionally my Fiancé gets through…wink) You have consumed my life since I MUST read EVERY single book you have ever mentioned, and for that, I thank you! Congrats on the 20,000!

Stacey C April 15, 2013 at 6:00 AM

Congratulations & thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! Favorite childhood book is “I’ll Always Love You” By Hans Wilhelm …have you read it? OMG talking about tear jerker!!

Melissa April 15, 2013 at 6:06 AM

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is my favorite book of all time. Its what got me to fall in love with books many, many years ago before the e-reader was born. Heathcliff was such a tortured, romantic soul.

Laura April 15, 2013 at 6:06 AM

WOOOOOHOOO! So very exciting! Congrats to you, this is awesome! I read every book you recommend, and you are right on! My favorite has to be Collide, You kow it’s got you when I went into work 3 hours late because I just had to finish it and then just sat there and stared!!

Michele T April 15, 2013 at 6:13 AM

CONGRATS MARYSE!!!! SQUEEEE!!!

Brittany April 15, 2013 at 6:13 AM

My favorite would probably have to be The Sea of Tranquility.

Andrea April 15, 2013 at 6:13 AM

Oh man. Too many to choose from. I guess my favorite could be 60 shades because it got me on this romance reading kick a year ago. I haven’t stopped since.

elizabeth April 15, 2013 at 6:13 AM

While I absolutely loved books like beautiful disaster, thoughtless, the edge of never, wallbanger, sea of tranquility, and emi lost and found…..I have to give number one to fifty shades of grey, because like so many, it’s the one that started the need to read. :)

Melissa B April 15, 2013 at 6:18 AM

Thanks for all you do :)

Debbie April 15, 2013 at 6:25 AM

Congratulations! and well deserved. My favorite book is one from my younger days, Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I think I have read that big Mammajamma 4 times. Although, Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Maguire is running a close second. (I will be rereading it for the third time very soon.)

Rebecka April 15, 2013 at 6:26 AM

My absolute favorite book ever has to be The Giver by Lois Lowery. I was 10 the first time I read it but it’s the book that made me fall in love with reading. And I’m still a sucker for some YA dystopian drama. lol

Nancy Perry April 15, 2013 at 6:26 AM

It would have to be Twilight. It is the sexiest book I’ve ever read, without a bit of sex in it!

Heather S. April 15, 2013 at 6:26 AM

Congrats to you! There are too many to name; but I would have to go with Fablehaven! The creativity and fantasy left me wanting more.

Beth D April 15, 2013 at 6:27 AM

The only book I have ever read twice is Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines. Just love her!!

Nicole April 15, 2013 at 6:27 AM

Absolute favourite would have to be Pride and Prejudice. I’m still swooning over Mr. Darcy xx

Amanda April 15, 2013 at 6:30 AM

Beautiful Disaster has been my fav. Would have never found it if I had not found your website. I have never been let down by any book on your lists of what to read. Congrats and Thanks.

Kari April 15, 2013 at 6:30 AM

Yay! I could go with The Magic Faraway Tree or Animal farm from younger years, but it was really Anne Rice and Interview with a Vampire that shaped what I enjoy reading today.

Debi April 15, 2013 at 6:30 AM

Congrats! My favorite book of all time would have to be Memiors of a Geshia.

Sheri M. April 15, 2013 at 6:30 AM

I’ve read a lot of the books mentioned above and they are all so good. My niece got me interested in the paranormal romances about 2 yrs ago and they are my favorite. My over all favorite, you’ll think I’m crazy, is Taming of the Shrew. We read it in high school and then got to see the play so it has really stuck with me. I love Shakespeare’s colorful swearing too.

Dawn F April 15, 2013 at 6:31 AM

I was never a reader of more than magazine articles until a friend let me borrow her Fifty Shades series and that did it for me. Then I found your blog and have been happily reading many of your recommendations since then. Love your site and enthusiasm for reading. Congrats on 20k+!

Laura April 15, 2013 at 6:32 AM

Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens is my absolute favorite and it’s because of you that I found this book..thank you! Congrats on 20,000 likes!!!

Nicole A. April 15, 2013 at 6:33 AM

YAY!! Congrats! This is the first blog I started following and is still one of my favorites. Thank you so much for the giveaway. Slammed by Colleen Hoover. I could read that book a million times and still love it. =D

Jamie April 15, 2013 at 6:33 AM

It would have to be Thoughtless. :)

Casey April 15, 2013 at 6:37 AM

I’d have to say To Kill A Mockingbird. Stereotypical and slightly dorky, but that book changed my perspective on what books can do forever. And my cat Atticus owes his name. :-)

Thank you for the giveaway, and congratulations!

Patsy April 15, 2013 at 6:37 AM

Congrats!! So hard to pick a favorite book… Right now, A Mighty Storm comes to mind.

Barb April 15, 2013 at 6:38 AM

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

C April 15, 2013 at 6:39 AM

I was in the hospital 6 months ago, then 2 months of bed rest. I went from audio books to e books very quickly. Then I found Maryse……..books, books, books. I could read 1 a day so it was nice to have a stream of suggestions. I love Meghan Heart. I love the Crossfire books, I love the Gabriel series, I love Olivia’s rock star books.. And Mr Grey of course. Thank you Maryse and all your 20,000 friends.

Kassandra April 15, 2013 at 6:40 AM

Congratulations!!!

Debra Bernal April 15, 2013 at 6:41 AM

Congrats on 20,000 likes. My favorite book…. Effortless by S.C. Stephens.

kim April 15, 2013 at 6:42 AM

So excited for you! I go to your site almost every single day!!!!!! I would so love to win this, or so much fun! So hard to come up with a favorite. Fifty shades of grey was beyond words, as was Captive in the dark series, so, so, so many I’ve reread and loved but I guess I would still choose Zsadist story as my favorite , I loved it!

Tracie April 15, 2013 at 6:43 AM

Congrats……20K!!!!! WOW!!!! It is so hard to pick a favorite…like many people, Fifty Shades sparked my current reading addiction, but I have read so many wonderful books since then!!! I am going to have to say The Edge of Never is my current favorite!! A friend actually introduced me to your blog, and now I am hooked!!!

Deanna April 15, 2013 at 6:44 AM

Congratulations!!!! My favorite book is beautiful disaster and walking disaster!!! I have never anticipated a new release like I did for walking disaster and it did not disappoint!!!!

Thank you for all you to for us!!!

Dana April 15, 2013 at 6:44 AM

Favorite book of all times is hard but I would say the whole Fever Series. I could not put them down. A special thanks to you Maryse it has been fun getting to know your book brain!!

Cody April 15, 2013 at 6:46 AM

Pick a favorite really??? I don’t think that’s possible. I’m going with The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein. Otherwise this list would be very long!

Drenna April 15, 2013 at 6:46 AM

Congrats maryse! Wooohoooo 20,0000 :) my favorite book? Hrm that’s a hard one but I would say the golden dynasty by Kristen Ashely. Just because it’s my go to book that I can always re-read.

Jennifer Popina April 15, 2013 at 6:47 AM

If I had to pick just one book it’d be…..Beautiful Disaster :) What can I say! I love Travis!!

Tanya April 15, 2013 at 6:47 AM

Conrats on having such an awesome following, not that it surprises me. I originally found your blog googling the Black Dagger Brotherhood reading order and have been an avid fan ever since. To be honest your my favorite and the best enabler. Ive always loved reading but since finding you my addiction has taken on a whole new level, so thank you :) !!!! As far as my favorite book…Wow…like everyone else there are really too many to name these days and I couldn’t pick one, but I remember the first book I truly loved “The Monster At The End Of This Book about Grover from Sesame Street.

Crestina April 15, 2013 at 6:48 AM

Congratulations! There isn’t a day I don´t come to visit your blog to see what recommendations you have for us!!
Twilight, not because it’s my favorite ( got too many to choose only one) but it was because of it that I became a reading fanatic!

Yasmine April 15, 2013 at 6:49 AM

Congrats Maryse!!! SO tough to just pick one but I guess I’ll go with Beautiful Disaster…read it in one sitting and stayed until 7am to finish it because I literally could not put it down. BD is also the reason I found your blog…as soon as I’d finished it I searched for similar books, which led me here to your ‘What to Read After Beautiful Disaster’ list!!!

Kim April 15, 2013 at 6:50 AM

Wow!!!! Congrats!!! If I had to narrow down just one book I would have to say Wuthering Heights ;) BUT my all time, favorite series that I just can’t pick one of is BDB for sure. Thanks for all you do!

Melanie April 15, 2013 at 6:50 AM

I have to go with J.R. Ward’s Black Daggar Brotherhood Series, all of it. I love the ongoing series and always anticipate the next book to come. I hate waiting!!

Barbara April 15, 2013 at 6:50 AM

First of all congratulations! Really hard to pick just one book, but I think I have to go with Interview with the Vampire. My obsession started with that one!

Leslie April 15, 2013 at 6:50 AM

Congrats!
My fav book is Gail Carriages Souless. It has laughter and mystery and love and the characters never have left my brain. Of course many of the books from your blog are way up on top too!

Alison April 15, 2013 at 6:51 AM

Thanks so much! Love this blog! Twilight is my favorite book!

Ashleigh April 15, 2013 at 6:51 AM

Congrats! Fav childhood book… The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
Fav adult book…. Hmmm. Too many to choose at this point! But I’ll go with 50 shades bc it is the series that got me into reading again and your blog
Kept me hooked!!!

Lindsay Turpin April 15, 2013 at 6:52 AM

I’m going to have to say the Mortal Instruments series. I know it isn’t ONE book, but its hard to pick just one :) If I HAD to, then it would be City of Glass because I loved how the first part of the series came together :)

bookster April 15, 2013 at 6:52 AM

Shadowfever by karen marie moning

Chrissy O'Brien April 15, 2013 at 6:53 AM

My favorite book of all times had to be the Harry Potter Series. I couldn’t wait till the next book came out and remember rushing to the store to buy them the first day. I loved the movies as well (because of the books) and remember feeling so sad when the last one ended…like “what will I look forward to now”. Good old HP.

Tammy Smith April 15, 2013 at 6:55 AM

My absolute favorite book is Fifty Shades of Grey. Obviously because I love the book, but the main reason is because it was the first book that I read and I haven’t stopped yet! I read it about a year ago and since then I have read about 150 more. I absolutely LOVE reading!!! It’s my escape from a hectic day and my FAVORITE way to relax!! Oh, and it has brought a passion and hotness back to my 15 year marriage that burns hotter now than it did when I first met my totally sexy and hunky husband!!! ;-)

Kelly Browder April 15, 2013 at 6:55 AM

Congrats on 20,000. I would have to also say Fifty Shades of Grey. It turned me on to reading and the entire genre.

JudyZ April 15, 2013 at 6:55 AM

Maryse! Your blog and recommendations dictates what I read! :)
There are SO many books that have touched me in different ways… but if I must pick one, it would have to be Fifty Shades of Grey. (I laughed, I cried, I was hot! ugh)
It started me on my romance novel obsession! Now I read a book every other day!! :)

Emma April 15, 2013 at 6:55 AM

Well done!!! Don’t ever doubt yourself, you’ve got 20,065 people who believe in you and appreciate your thoughts. MY fav book is George and Sylvia. It’s a picture book I read my son. It’s about 2 gorillas with body issues who won’t tell each other they love the other. So cute. Makes me feel happy.

Veron April 15, 2013 at 6:56 AM

Shadow Fever by Karen Marie Moning

Danielle Hoover April 15, 2013 at 6:56 AM

Congratulations on this AMAZING milestone!!!!!! I am going with Fifty Shades of Grey since it started my reading obsession back up!!!!! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!!! I am keeping my fingers, toes and everything in between crossed!!!!!

Goodnight moon absolutely love it and my children love it.. How exciting? Congrats!!!

Dawn M. April 15, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Little House On The Prairie. It is the first book that hooked me into a love for reading.

Brandi Smith April 15, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Favorite book ever, wow that is hard – I have so many, one would have to be How to Kill a Rock Star by Tiffanie DeBartolo. I knew I would love this one after the first page.

Melissa April 15, 2013 at 7:01 AM

Gah….this is hard….I am thinking, right now, my favorite would be Outlander

Jessica z. April 15, 2013 at 7:02 AM

Absolutely love the Tale of Three Trees retold by Angela Elwell Hunt. The very basic theme of being proud of who you are and how we are all here for a different purpose but a meaningful one. Gets me teary-eyed by the end every time. And all good books bring out the emotions if written right.

Jennifer Mire April 15, 2013 at 7:02 AM

To Kill a Mockingbird….. Best book and story ever!!!

Kristin craven April 15, 2013 at 7:04 AM

My all time favorite book is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire!! Love it!!

Jessica H April 15, 2013 at 7:05 AM

Karen April 15, 2013 at 7:05 AM

Really hard to pick a favorite — but one I really really like is “The Red Tent” by Anita Diamant. So good!

Hard hard question, but I will say ShadowFever by Karen Marie Moning.

Sheila April 15, 2013 at 7:06 AM

Hmm, my last post didn’t complete. You must be thrilled about this wonderful achievement ! So happy for you.
My favorite book is “How to Kill a Rockstar”, that’s the book that got me reading again.

Stephanie Scott April 15, 2013 at 7:07 AM

My favorite book is Sin Undone by Larissa Ione. If I could pick many books, it would definitely be her Demonica Series, followed by the LOD series. Sin and Con were my absolute favorite though, I think mainly because of the character transformation and the journey they both went on to be together. Larissa’s writing style is just amazing though. Love her to pieces!

Maria Malaveci April 15, 2013 at 7:09 AM

Congratulations Maryse!!!!! My favorite book ever? Well there are many, but one I will never forget and absolutely love is the amazing Captive in the Dark, and Seduced in the Dark by CJ Roberts ♥

I would say the Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. Technically it is three books in one. If I absolutely must choose, then I would say the first book of the trilogy: Daughter of the Blood. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read and re-read this book. A cabilllion million. It’s ridiculous.

Jenn April 15, 2013 at 7:40 AM

Congratulations!!!!! My favorite book of all time would have to be
Twilight.

Jillian April 15, 2013 at 7:54 AM

When I think what could possibly be my favourite ever book, I keep coming back to Twilight. It helped me through a dark time in my life. I was able to completely shut out the pain I was feeling in real life and throw myself into this beautiful love story. It re-ignited my love of vampire stories, and then on to paranormal romance which in turn led me to this blog…..and my world hasn’t been the same since :)

Congrats Maryse !!!

Carrie April 15, 2013 at 7:54 AM

Lesley April 15, 2013 at 8:12 AM

I’d have to say I started reading The Bobsey Twins books as a child and that started my love affair with reading. I go no where without my kindle touch!!

Alysia April 15, 2013 at 8:12 AM

Wow! What an awesome accomplishment. Congrats to you.. Picking a favorite is so hard. I’m going to say Insight by Jamie Magee, it started an obsession that I tell people about on a regular basis!

Terry Trahan April 15, 2013 at 8:16 AM

My favorite book ever written is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. This is a children’s book and I bought it when my kids were little. They are now 26 and 23. It is about a mother’s love for her child, no matter what he does growing up, she will love him forever. Then it switches at the end to the son telling his mother he will love her forever!!! I am telling you, it gets me every single time I read it! I have moved several times over the years, and could not find my book that I had bought when my children were little, so my daughter surprised me one year for Christmas and bought it for me. BEST GIFT EVER!!!

Natalie April 15, 2013 at 8:17 AM

Effortless by S C Stephens.

Marlena Fein April 15, 2013 at 8:21 AM

20K is huge Maryse but, does it surprise you? Not only are you cute as a button and have amazing taste in books, you are so kind and generous to us and to charities to help other people. You are just one example of why I love the book community so much! It seems like my all time favorite book becomes whatever book I am reading at the time however if I had to pick just one, I would say Hunger Games. It was the first book I had picked up in years, and got me back into reading again and for that, it holds a special place in my heart.

Thank you for your amazing giveaway and much continued success,
Marlena

Molly R April 15, 2013 at 8:25 AM

Oh my, to pick just one all-time favorite book? I think that’s darn near impossible! Twilight got it all started for me, though I’ve always been a voracious reader. Right now, I have to say there are three tied for first: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover, Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay and Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Love love love!

Congratulations Maryse, you’re the best!

Danyel April 15, 2013 at 8:26 AM

Megan Vitty April 15, 2013 at 8:30 AM

My favorite book would have to be Cirque du Freak or really the whole Darren Shan Saga but that’s the first one. I read it when I was 12 maybe and it’s what got me into paranormal reading. Even though all my friends said it was a boys book, I still love it now.

Congratulations on 20,000 Maryse!!!!

Laura Warner April 15, 2013 at 8:30 AM

Lisa April 15, 2013 at 8:30 AM

My absolute favorite book has to be Beautiful Disaster. It’s one of the only books I’ve read more than once. I never seem to get tired of Travis Maddox.

Sondra April 15, 2013 at 8:31 AM

I have to say my favorite book ever is the 50 Shades trilogy. I know…it’s not original, but it is what started it all for me. I never had time to read before and I had just gotten my iPad, so I easily (almost TOO easy), downloaded all 3 books. Since then my life hasn’t been the same. That is how I came across this website. I had to find similar books (after reading 50 trilogy 3 times) and every single book Maryse recommened… I have loved! I am truly addicted to reading now!!

Ash April 15, 2013 at 8:31 AM

It’s so hard to choose what book I love the most!! I would have to say one that stuck with me the most is the opportunist by tarryn fisher. No other book has made me want to simultaneously throw my kindle and cry. Also, I can never look at airport blue the same again.

bonnie April 15, 2013 at 8:31 AM

My absolute favorite book ever is “The Secret Garden” from when I was a kiddo ;-)

Colleen Capone April 15, 2013 at 8:31 AM

Fifty Shades of Grey!

Liberty April 15, 2013 at 8:32 AM

Thalia April 15, 2013 at 8:33 AM

Congrats!! I cannot pick just one…so I would say any of JR Ward BDB books.

JodyB April 15, 2013 at 8:35 AM

It really depends on my mood. I have a lot of favorites. But I love, love, loved On the Edge Of Never. And Beautiful Disaster or course:) And The Opportunist. Okay I have to stop. I cant just pick one!!!

Krystal Marin April 15, 2013 at 8:37 AM

Amy April 15, 2013 at 8:41 AM

My all time favorite book is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon!

Kristene getz April 15, 2013 at 8:43 AM

Congrats on all the LIKES :) Picking only one fav book is hard. I guess the book that started it all for me is Pride and prejudice! I’m a hopeless romantic but love a little angst along the way!

Jessica April 15, 2013 at 8:43 AM

Picking a favorite book is extremely hard. I have favorite books for hate we mood I’m in! Lol but I would have to say the Harry potter series is definitely a big favorite.

Brooke April 15, 2013 at 8:46 AM

I’m going to have to say Fifty Shades of Grey. This book started my obession and is one of the few books I can read over and over again!

Julie Dancause April 15, 2013 at 8:51 AM

Congrats Maryse! My favorite book is Beautiful Disaster.

Jenn April 15, 2013 at 8:51 AM

Congrats Maryse! Do you realize this is torture picking just one….I know we have so many but since I can only pick one I am definitely going with The Sea of Tranquility. That book was pure perfection. It’s been almost 9 months since I read it and it is the only book I have ever read where if I even so much as think about the last two words in the book it brings a smile to my face and tears to my eyes. Just loved it….

Cherie Acevedo April 15, 2013 at 8:54 AM

Congratulations!!!! Your blog is definitely worth all the likes and more! :) My all time favorite book….wow, I have so many…to pick one…I don’t know. I am reading Real by Katy Evans right now, and I absolutely LOVE it. But I also really enjoyed the Twilight Saga, the Up in the Air trilogy, and many more. Ok–if I had to pick one, it would be Twilight–I love that Edward stays true to his gentleman upbringing, but you can definitely feel the love. :)

Cassie Sparks April 15, 2013 at 8:54 AM

My favorite book would have to nightpleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon. It is a book I have read and read over. I love this book so much.

Tracy P April 15, 2013 at 8:55 AM

It’s hard to pick one!! But I have to go with Twilight since that is what started it all for me. Congrats on 20k!!! :)

Christine April 15, 2013 at 8:55 AM

I would have to say Colleen Hoovers Hopless was my all time favorite. It kept me on my toes all the way through and the emotional rollar coaster was just amazing. Can’t wait for more of her books :)

Danielle P. April 15, 2013 at 8:56 AM

Yay!!! Congrats Maryse!!! OK, so one book, that’s a tough one! I’d have to say The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher. That book pulled me in all angles and I couldn’t read for days when finished! I do however have to include another favorite, its not a book, but it is my favorite story of all time… The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allen Poe!

Sarah Jane April 15, 2013 at 8:56 AM

Congrats! On the Island which after reading an interview with Tracey Garvis Graves on your blog….I had to read and I had to read it right away…. So I juggled reading and making my kid’s b-day cake at the same time in the wee hours of the morn.

Anya April 15, 2013 at 8:56 AM

Congratulations! My favorite book or series I should say is EIT by Karina Hale

Tiernan Fleming April 15, 2013 at 8:58 AM

Linda D April 15, 2013 at 8:58 AM

Congrats Maryse! My favorite book is Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. Because of this series that I went searching for book like this and found you!

Becky April 15, 2013 at 8:59 AM

Well, the Fifty Shades Trilogy got me started on this reading obsession again after many years! But my newest favorite is “In The Stillness” by Andrea Randall….GAH, I CANNOT narrow it down at this point.

Congrats, you rock Maryse!

Nancy Weaver April 15, 2013 at 9:14 AM

Congratulations! I’m a long time lurker (I check the website daily), never poster **blush**, but here goes! I’m currently still obsessed with S.C. Stephen’s “Reckless.” I was sooooo excited when it came out I stayed up all night after working full nursing shift and read it all before my next shift. I also downloaded it to my Audible account and have listened to it while working out. Does my heart good to see/hear Keira and Kellan finally quit punishing each other and focus on their growth and love. I can’t help but love angst, but still nice to see the happy ending!

Jenn April 15, 2013 at 9:15 AM

One of my favorte books has to be Beautiful Disaster!! I LOVE Travis!!!

Melissa April 15, 2013 at 9:18 AM

hard to pick just one but I’d say fifty Shades of Grey is what reignited my passion for reading. After that Beautiful Diaster, Taking Chances, Edge of Never. It just goes on and on…

Erin April 15, 2013 at 9:20 AM

When crickets cry by Charles Martin. The best.. really anything by him.

Nikki April 15, 2013 at 9:20 AM

Contests Maryse! SO hard to pick only one favorite, but I guess I would have to say Twilight because it got me back into reading :)

Vicki April 15, 2013 at 9:21 AM

Awesome on the likes!! Beautiful Disaster!

Susie April 15, 2013 at 9:21 AM

My favorite book of all time is Moonraker’s Bride by Madeleine Brent, because that is the first “real” romance book I read when I was a kid.

Melissa S. April 15, 2013 at 9:22 AM

Wow! Congratulations on over 20,000+ llikes!! I’d have to say I absolutely love your blog.. I love being able to compare what I’ve gotten from the book to what you n your other fans got from reading the same book! It would be hard to choose just one book but I believe it would be This Man Trilogy by Jodi E Malpas. I would have to say my book collection has probably doubled since I found your blog! I love the book recommendations, I have found so many favorites from this. Thanks for all your hard work and late nights!!

Missy April 15, 2013 at 9:23 AM

WOW!! Congratulations!! I just recently found your site and am loving it!! I started reading again just a year ago with the Fifty Shades series and have not been able to put the books down since! I always have to be reading something and I found that you have the best recommendations. So, to pick just one favorite is going to be tough!! I love a good rock and roll romance with lots of angst. I really loved Sheet Music by Ann Lister, Devoured by Emily Snow and of course Collide by Gail McHugh. It’s just so hard to pick just one:) Thanks for keeping me reading!!

Rose April 15, 2013 at 9:24 AM

CONGRATS!!!!! So happy for you and thank you for the BEST blog for us readers in these genres:)!! Wow… Favorite book?? I have a few as I like mystery and romance. Kathleen Woodiwiss’ “The Flame and the Flower” was one of my first romance novels that got me started in this genre.

Holly April 15, 2013 at 9:24 AM

If I had to choose just one, I would have to choose I Love You to Death by Natalie Ward.

My favourite book would be Au bonheur des dames by Emile Zola, I don’t know how many times I’ve read it.

Christine D April 15, 2013 at 9:32 AM

The first one that comes to mind is Beautiful Disaster. I have read this many times. I’m a Travis addict I guess.

Shannon April 15, 2013 at 9:34 AM

omg! how do i ever pick one!?!?!? it is totally up to the mood i’m in. . .okay. . .okay. . .don’t hyperventilate. lol. I’m going to go with, right now? Beautiful Disaster- because when I read it I don’t completely emotionally die like so many of my other loves, and sometimes you need a book you can read and still live in the world with (it is so easy to lose yourself completely! Thoughtless series- I’m talking about you!). Plus, it completely got me into the genre to begin with- so I gotta love it for that alone.

Tina April 15, 2013 at 9:35 AM

Beautiful Disaster for sure!!!

Stephanie April 15, 2013 at 9:36 AM

Congratulations!! BDB Series by J. R. Ward!! The best……I love those guys!!!!!

Krisite April 15, 2013 at 9:59 AM

Congrats girl! Good for you! It’s so hard to pick just one favorite………I guess from “back in the day” in would be Gone with the Wind, contemporary it would have to be a tie between Beautiful Disaster & The Edge of Never.
Thanks for the great giveaway-you rock!

Julie April 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM

It’s hard to pick just one! But I’m going to go with the Twilight series. Ok – that’s not just one-lol! But of those 4 books, Eclipse was my favorite.

Kris April 15, 2013 at 10:01 AM

Whitney My Love. It was the first book that swept into romance.

Chanpreet April 15, 2013 at 10:01 AM

One of my favorite childhood book is The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. I had a copy that I re-read until the covers came off meaning I had to go and get another one before the pages started coming off it.

Beautiful Disaster… Without question! And I never would’ve found it without you Maryse! Congrats!

Jessica April 15, 2013 at 10:11 AM

Way too tough of a decision to just pick one… I guess the one that I have reread the most though would be … Beautiful Disaster…close second and third…. Love unscripted and Easy… But oh so many more. I don’t like having to choose:(

Lena Burris April 15, 2013 at 10:13 AM

My fave of all time is The Edge of Never!! I had to quit reading other books for a whole month after it! All other books just couldn’t compete with it!! Thanks and CONGRATS!

D Edwards April 15, 2013 at 10:15 AM

The Fault in Our Stars is my absolute favorite! I still tear up just thinking about it.

Marna S. April 15, 2013 at 10:23 AM

Courtnie Beebe April 15, 2013 at 10:27 AM

I love The Opportunist by KA Linde.

Morgan April 15, 2013 at 10:27 AM

If I had to pick only one it would be A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks. I’m typically not a huge fan of his work but I read this book at least twice a year bc of its sentimental value to me.

Kim April 15, 2013 at 10:29 AM

First off, thank you so much for this blog. Your insightful reviews are paramount to my book buying decision making process these days! I have always been an avid reader but until FSOG, had never read “adult contemporary” (is that what the cool kids are calling it these days?) before. I am now an admitted addict and really appreciate your recommendations.

Picking a favourite all time book is difficult. I have loved so many but One Day by David Nicholls moved me like no other. If you’ve seen the movie, skip the book because the element of surprise will be gone. They did a TERRIBLE job adapting that book for the big screen unfortunately.

Congratulations on your immense popularity and 20K and counting likes on FB!

Chelsea April 15, 2013 at 10:29 AM

Congratulations!! A book I have read countless time throughout my life, and is like comfort food in book form to me, is Anne of Green Gables.

Tracey April 15, 2013 at 10:30 AM

Favorite all time book is “Cages of Glass, Flowers of Time” written by Charlotte Cullin. I read it for the first time in the 7th grade and read it every single year in the summer. So I’ve read it at least 20 times…..

Cathy April 15, 2013 at 10:31 AM

It is sooo hard to choose a favorite book. I would say A Handmaid’s Tale.

Amelia Y April 15, 2013 at 10:33 AM

Charlie and the chocolate factory!!! I love the story!! I’ve read it a million times and it kind of kick started my love for reading (:

Courtney M April 15, 2013 at 10:34 AM

Beautiful Disaster…. Travis… still think about him…. Real by Katy Evans has Remy a very close second but always Travis first.

Orla April 15, 2013 at 10:34 AM

Nikkiboo April 15, 2013 at 10:58 AM

Sweeta D April 15, 2013 at 10:59 AM

Congratulations!
It all started with “Are you there God…It’s me, Margaret”
Read this when I was a preteen and my LOVE for reading blossomed from there…..Thank you for this blog. It couldn’t be any more spectacular than it already is!

Melanie April 15, 2013 at 11:01 AM

Annie April 15, 2013 at 11:10 AM

So so hard to pick one… The Host by Stephenie Meyer and Emi Lost and Found trilogy by Lori Otto. I’m sorry if giving 2 books disqulaifies me from the drawing but they both hold a special place in my heart!

Way to go Maryse for 20,000 likes!!!

Amazon should thank you for the increase in sales they experience due to my reading”habit”….because it’s all your fault girl and this amazing blog!

Anni April 15, 2013 at 11:12 AM

Congrats!! I cannot pick one book that is my all-time favorite, but one that’s high on the list would be “Red Tent” by Anita Diamant

Bobbie Desmond April 15, 2013 at 11:15 AM

Congratulations, Maryse. Well done, as always. My favorite book is The Lord of the Rings. Have read it six times and will probably read it again.

Brenda Tetreault April 15, 2013 at 11:15 AM

Congrats on such a momentous milestone! As for my favorite book EVER? It’s a toss up between two books. The first is ‘Caddie Woodlawn’ by Carol Ryrie Brink. My fourth grade teacher read it to us during rainy day recesses (living in the Pacific Northwest, we had those more often than not!). It was more exciting than the Little House On The Prairie books, and I came to understand that it was okay to make mistakes, and more importantly, that being a tomboy wasn’t a bad thing The second book is, ‘A Knight In Shining Armour’ by Jude Devereaux. It my very first romance novel, and I was fifteen. I think it’s because of that book that I write romance now, myself!

Jess W April 15, 2013 at 11:17 AM

My favourite book of all time is Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde.
He’s just amazing.
Thanks for the giveaway and congrats!

Alicia L. April 15, 2013 at 11:18 AM

I have too many books that I love, but my all time favorite (from when I was a kid, but will still return to time and again) is the Belgarid series by David Eddings – I guess technically that is 5 books, but they are so fun, well written, and over all fantastic, they will always be my fave :)

Jenna April 15, 2013 at 11:21 AM

What a loaded question! it is so hard to just pick one…right now my favorite book is this man trilogy by jodi malpas! <3

Kathy April 15, 2013 at 11:22 AM

I would have to say Twilight because it reignited my love of reading!

Congrats!! One of my favorite books is The Bridge to Terabithia.

N M Brown April 15, 2013 at 11:25 AM

Where the Wild Things Are!!! An oldie from my childhood, but definetely a goodie!

Christie April 15, 2013 at 11:26 AM

My favorite book?!? That’s hard. I have several books that are favorites for different reasons, and the list is always changing. Favorite children’s book is easy. That would be, It’s the Bear, by Jez Alborough (and the rest of the ‘Eddy and his teddy Freddy’ books). But as for my absolute favorite book ever… that’s tough. I like John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner, An Affair to Dismember by Elise Sax, and the Fifty Shades series by E.L. James. However, if we’re talking favorite overall, my current favorite at this very moment is probably Hopeless by Colleen Hoover.
Congratulations on reaching 20,000 likes!!!

Nicole April 15, 2013 at 11:27 AM

Congrats! To Kill a Mockingbird

Liz @ Fictional Candy April 15, 2013 at 11:34 AM

What a crazy hard decision to make… I’d say all of the BDB books, but Zsadist’s book specifically. That man…. whew. Plus I just feel the amount of personal growth he’s had throughout the series has been completely astounding. His strength, his courage, his love… I love him!

Congratulations on such a spectacular milestone!!

Lorena April 15, 2013 at 11:35 AM

Congrats!! I have had lots of favorite books throughout the years but my current favorite is The Edge of Never.

Meghan Mack April 15, 2013 at 11:39 AM

Oh man…this so isn’t fair!! I have no idea which ONE book would be my fav…Maybe Bared to You? So many good books!!

Jennifer April 15, 2013 at 11:43 AM

Congrats Maryse! Your blog is the best ever! Gone With the Wind is my favorite!

April Braun April 15, 2013 at 11:45 AM

I am going to have to say the Twilight Saga – I have to say that this series brought me back into my love – make that addiction to reading. I have always read books throughout my life but I could easily go months between books without one thought. Once I read the Twilight saga (the books are so much better than the movies) I was hooked and shortly after I found Maryse’s blog and I have loved every book I read based on a positive recommendation so I now have had a serious reading addiction and I love it. I can’t go 1 day without reading for at least a few minutes (usually tends to turn into late nights reading) but I think this is good because my kids see my love for reading and are now more likely to pick up a book than play a video game…

Claudia April 15, 2013 at 11:46 AM

Congrats! 20,000 likes is amazing, it doesnt surprise me though ;) I dont know what my absolute favorite book is, there are too many for me to choose! But today I will say 50 Shades, even though tomorrow might be different lol!

Tiffany April 15, 2013 at 11:48 AM

Congrats!!!!! The Opportunist..soul crushing but beautiful.

rubi April 15, 2013 at 11:48 AM

Congrats!! Beautiful Disaster my favorite book..

Christina B April 15, 2013 at 11:48 AM

Because I can’t pick a favorite from my grown up books … I love too many.. Here is one of my all time favorites from kids books, ‘Chicka Chicka Boom Boom’ by Bill Martin Jr., John Archambault and Lois Ehlert. I read it first to my daughter when she was five months old recovering from open heart surgery. She is now 10 years old, and we read it every now and then and I remember how blessed I am she s here with me! <3

Jennifer April 15, 2013 at 11:49 AM

The Perfect Game and of course Fifty Shades because it made me see things in a different light.

Karen Bobo April 15, 2013 at 11:49 AM

The Edge of Never! Thanks Maryse! Congratulations!

Mari April 15, 2013 at 11:55 AM

Sweet Dreams by the great Kristen Ashley

Georgia April 15, 2013 at 11:55 AM

Fifty Shades of Grey.
I never really got into reading until FSOG. Once I was finished I was at such a pathetic loss. I moped around for days until I happened upon your website and “What to read after Fifty Shades” caught my eye. I have taken your advise and purchased / read many of the books listed on your site. I have never been happier in my entire life with my new love for books and since I usually exercise on the treadmill, in our home gym, while reading I have burned about as many calories as the hours of sleep I have lost over the past year. Needless to say, it’s all worth every single moment!
Congratulations on your massive blog!!

Diann April 15, 2013 at 11:57 AM

Definitely Bared to You! Loved the whole series so far and can’t wait for the last one!

Megan L April 15, 2013 at 11:58 AM

My all time favorite book is Pride and Prejudice. I can read it over and over again and it never gets old! Congrats Maryse!!

Kayla Layton April 15, 2013 at 11:58 AM

My absolute favorite book ever is and always will be Beautiful Disaster. That book is what got me reading again. Ever since Travis was brought into my world, I can’t seem to stop being a fictional book boyfriend lover!!!!

Kelly April 15, 2013 at 11:59 AM

I would have to say Breaking Dawn since it was what got me reading as an adult. I watched the first couple of Twilight movies with my kids, but I had to know how it all ended and since the Breaking Dawn movie wasn’t going to be out for a while I bought a kindle and bought the book. Been reading ever since!

Christina April 15, 2013 at 11:59 AM

My favorite, favorite book is Lying Season by Karina Halle. That book rocked me to the core – even after reading On Demon Wings, I was still reeling. Congrats, Maryse!

Dawn April 15, 2013 at 11:59 AM

My most favorite book of all time is Sea of Tranquility! I just LOVE that book. :)

Jayme April 15, 2013 at 12:00 PM

I’ve got tons but if I have to choose I would say 50 Shades because it kick started my fiction obsession. When I was younger I would read a lot but it simmered down as I got older. Now I’m reading way more than I expected to and I’m loving it! A bit thank you for all your recommendations! Congrats on the 20K!! Love your blog!

Jamie W April 15, 2013 at 12:01 PM

The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. Even though we read that back in 2001 I stil thank god b/c if not I wouldn’t be reading as much as I do now. Very proud of myself for how far I am in my reading. Congrats on 20,000 likes!!

Julie April 15, 2013 at 12:01 PM

My favorite book is Bared to You!!

Elva C April 15, 2013 at 12:03 PM

Congratulations! One of my favorite books is The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Nikki E April 15, 2013 at 12:04 PM

My favorite book of ALL TIME continues to be “Snow Falling on Cedars.” i think because it is what started my love of reading. I never knew it could be THAT GOOD. I read it about 15 years ago. The copy I own I treat like an antique. Oh yeah, that crappy movie version does not do this book justice. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jen C. April 15, 2013 at 12:04 PM

Congrats on 20k!!!! Holy cannoli! You are so fabulous.

Favorite book ever … The Edge of Never. I love every moment of their journey together. Everytime I read it I find something new!

Second…………………. Good Luck to all the Posters. :) ))

Third…………….. I would love to participate in this draw. (Crossing legs and fingers.)

liezel April 15, 2013 at 12:05 PM

Congratulations! What an extraordinary accomplishment! Can’t even imagine all the authors, bloggers and readers you’ve helped through your blog.

So difficult to pick an all time favorite, there’s just so many. But if I had to pick the ONE book… it would be Gabriel’s Inferno.

Kristy Croll April 15, 2013 at 12:05 PM

Thank you for so many recommendations. My husband is not thrilled with how much more time I spend with my Kindle than him :) I would have to say 50 Shades of Grey, since it is what started my addiction to reading so much! I do have a special place in my heart for Travis :)

Lucia April 15, 2013 at 12:05 PM

Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway.
CONGRATULATIONS :)

Diana A. April 15, 2013 at 12:06 PM

My FAVORITE book ever is Emi Lost & Found by Lori Otto, but everything she writes is outstanding.

Wendy April 15, 2013 at 12:06 PM

Congratulation 20000 is a huge achievement! Wow that is a hard one. I don’t know if I have a favorite book or even a favorite author. The first book that I remember reading is Dragonsong by Anne McCaffrey and so I fell in love with reading and fantasy with her books, but I also still love Tolkien’s books. Now I read books depending on my mood and so I read anything from sweet mail order bride romance stuff to Kristen Ashley, Cherise Sinclair, Laurann Dohner, Laura Jo Phillips or Viola Grace. Any of these ladies are on my must read now list.

Andrea Wellman April 15, 2013 at 12:06 PM

Clockwork Princess has to be my all time favorite. My heart was ripped out over and over again. By the end it was whole and I feel like there may never be another book to top it. ( atleast from that author)

Heather L April 15, 2013 at 12:07 PM

Congrats Maryse on your milestone! Love your blog and choices in books! My favorite book is “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” by E.L. Konigsburg. As a young girl growing up in rural California I lived at the local library. This book about two kids running away and hiding inside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC really captured my imagination! A few years ago, I was even lucky enough to find a signed copy of this book in a used bookstore and have treasured it ever since. Thank you so much for helping me find my love of reading again!

Samantha April 15, 2013 at 12:07 PM

I absolutely loved Collide! I am salivating at the
Bit for pulse.

Milto April 15, 2013 at 12:08 PM

Carrie April 15, 2013 at 12:32 PM

Fifty Shades also started my ready craze! But I have such a love for Slammed, Beautiful Disaster, and sooo many others. I just can’t stop myself!

Crystal Hernandez April 15, 2013 at 1:29 PM

Love Story by Erich Segal! Recommended by my 6th grade engilish teacher many years ago first book I fell in love with and cried my eyes out so many emotions :)

Jocelyn Conway April 15, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Congrats!!. Favorite book, so hard to choose I love so many but if I had to choose one it would be Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell. Read it when I was in 5th grade and its never left me. The strength and determination of lead character Karana is amazing.

Kit Mogle April 15, 2013 at 1:31 PM

It’s “Sword-Dancer” by Jennifer Roberson. I bought this book when I was about 12 from a local pharmacy and just loved it. It was the first time that when I read a book the world came alive in my head so that I was “watching the film” play out while I read. After that I just kinda fell in love with reading. I still own a copy of the paperback. Its edges are tattered , there are dog ears and highlight marks throughout it and every few years I just have to pick it up again to revisit. I even was lucky enough to meet her once and handed her this very highly loved book for her to sign, sadly I lost my “original” signed one in Katrina but that book introduced me to reading and will always be my favorite.

Congratulations on all of your LIKES! honestly they need to make a LOVE IT! button because your site is amazing =) Thanks for all you do .

Tammy April 15, 2013 at 1:31 PM

I would have to say Twilight by Stephanie Meyers! I never really like to read before and when I read that book and all the others in the series, I can’t seem to get enough of reading. My life would be so boring if I couldn’t read! I also love Fallen too far, abby glines! I could go on and on!!!

Louise at Readers Confession April 15, 2013 at 1:38 PM

Congratulations!! Aww I bet you’re chuffed to bits :-) This is quite a hard choice for me, I have read so many amazing books and I have quite a few favourites and all for different reasons! So ater thinking things through, I would have to pick either Matilda, because it was the very first Hardback book I was bought for my birthday when I was 8. I adored it and read it over and over. I still have that book! I guess I have an emotional connection to Matilda as I felt very much like her, nobody else in my family reads. Another favourite I could pick Would be My Girl… yes , another childrens book. I remember reading this and being totally in love with my best friends brother! My Girl just remind me so much of him, and how my childhood was like. :-)

Anne Marie April 15, 2013 at 2:45 PM

Congrats on 20,000!!! I don’t know what I would do without your blog. I love reading your reviews and recommendations. The Twilight series is what started my reading addiction but having to pick my all-time favorite book…that’s tough. So if I have to pick one right now, it would have to be Lover Awakened by JR Ward.

Sarah Underwood April 15, 2013 at 2:49 PM

My Favorite book hmmmmm – Would have to be Slammed from Colleen Hoover, she got me back into reading and i haven’t stopped, Its like she bought out the inner soul of me :)

Davina C April 15, 2013 at 2:50 PM

Favourite book has to be motorcycle man by Kirsten ashley….. And I have you to thank for introducing me to KA thanks maryse and congrats

Denise April 15, 2013 at 2:51 PM

On Dublin Street.. that spooning scene stayed with me

Cristina Riquelme April 15, 2013 at 2:52 PM

Congrats Maryse!!
My favorite book is a Classic Mansfield Park by Jane Austen…. i think i read like 100 times… what i like that Fanny is self-effacing to the point of passivity, in marked contrast to Austen’s more lively heroines,but her moral sense and voice pervade Mansfield Park, and gradually,to realize that she is a woman of deep convictions. She holds fast to her beliefs more than anyone else in this novel and emerges as a truly worthy heroine.
:)

Demitra April 15, 2013 at 2:52 PM

My all time favorite book is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Sarah Rae April 15, 2013 at 2:52 PM

Ilze K April 15, 2013 at 2:55 PM

Ahhh, so hard to choose, but I have to go with The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. It is the book which made me laugh out load so many times and made me a sobbing mess in the end. Truly beautiful!

Holley April 15, 2013 at 2:58 PM

It’s so hard to pick one, but if I must I guess I would say Twilight because that’s what started my reading obsession. Before that I wouldn’t read unless I was forced, I didn’t know what I was missing.

Hahahhahaha my favorite book ever…that’s one tricky question !! I’ve read so many books in my life and at the end of so many of them did I think “oh man, this has to be the best book I”ve ever read !!”…
But if I was to single one out, I would definitly turn to the book that opened my eyes to a world of wonder, a world I have been roaming for so long, and that would be Harry Potter, from the amazing JK Rowling :) )

Congrates! I have more then one but I have to go with Archangel’s Kiss by Nalini Singh

Alexandra April 15, 2013 at 3:53 PM

I’m cheating because I can’t. One of the first books that came to mind, honestly, was The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. And then Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. And Going Under by S. Walden, since that’s my most recent incredible read. And Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire.

BUT. I’m just gonna say The Truth About Forever. That book left quite an impression on me, obviously.

Thanks for the chance, and congratulations! (:

I have so many I love, but I am going to say Twilight because it began my reading addiction. I haven’t been able to stop reading AWESOME books since meeting Edward Cullen :)

Congrats! At first it was hard to decide because I can sit and read though a good book in a day. But I thought back to what started my love of reading (past the nancy drew of course!) and thought of the first book where I was introduced to a great heroine and an alpha hero and that book was Honor’s Spendour by Julie Garwood. I remember seeing this book at the library sale when I was a young teen and I hid it in with all my other books (so my mom wouldn’t see!) I went home and DEVOURED that book, finishing it in a single day – then hid it under my chair :) Lady Madelyne was such a great, sweet and funny heroine and Duncan, the Wolf, was strong and rough, but fell so hard. I remember laughing and crying and just thinking that I had to have *that feeling* again. I have never looked back since then and still go and reread that book every once in a while. I’m so glad that this book has led me to all the others like Fifty, Beautiful Disaster, Bared to You, every Kristen Ashley book, and more!

Thank you for helping me reliving that and also for creating a community where I can stalk others great reads!

I have to go with Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Always a classic and definitely the book that started my infatuation with reading!

Hi Maryse!
I’ve thought long and hard for the past couple of hours… but I think I’ve got it! My one, absolute favorite book ever would have to be The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. He was such a literary pioneer and that book.. it changed my life! Read it for the first time back in high school AP Lit and it blew my mind that someone could come up with a plot like that! I’ve probably read it 20 times since then..
By the way, congrats on 20k! I can’t even imagine that many people gathered together.. and you’re at the center of it all! That’s crazy awesome =)

Gah! I don’t know if I can pick just one favorite. I will say that the one that has stuck with me over the past few months that I keep thinking about is Avoiding Commitment by K.A. Linde. It made me squeeee the whole time I read it!
