I've never read a Stephanie Meyer, but I'd love to give this a try and then pass it on to a friend who is a big Twilight fan.

Great contest! I read the Twilight series and literally fell in love with it so I want to try to read this one and see if it's as good as the Twilight series.

I love Stephenie Meyer's writing because it's so vivid and detailed. She's a pro at writing pure, great stories.

I want to read this book as ALL my students read the TWILIGHT series and I haven't gotten to it so figure the "adult" Meyer book will be even better. Holiday tomorrow (day after birthday) is National Leg of Lamb Day or did you mean day before (Cingo de Mayo). She grew up in Arizona, is one of 6 siblings, and got her name from Dad Stephen (gee, do you think I researched that?) :D

Bingo said...

OH, NO! I put why AND the questions in one comment! Does that still count as two? I also have been a follower and love your blog! Thanks for the giveaway! This ONE I'd really like to read....only have until June 9 and then I retire!..wahoo!

Oh my gosh I want to read this book so badly! I am such a Stephenie Meyer fan because I literally fell in love with the plot and writing of the Twilight series. I placed a hold on The Host a few weeks ago at my local library but I'm number 372 on the waiting list! I just can't wait that long!

I want to read this book because I really enjoyed Twilight and want to see what other characters she can create. I also got my sister to actually read with Twilight and I would pass this on to her.

I am a huge fan of Stephanie Meyer. When I first heard of Twilight everyone was making a big deal about the book, the characters and I told myself that I was not going to read this series. The movie came out and I decided to rent it and watched it 3 times one night! It was sad how I fell in love with the characters. lol. So after I watched the movie I ended up getting the books and reading them and fell in love with the series! I can not wait to read something else by her..
And if I would give this book to someone it would have to my sister-in-law we share books together all of the time and I think it would be a book she would enjoy! Thank you for the chance to win it..

I have never read any of her books, but I have seen the Twilight movie and loved it. So now, the next thing is of course to borrow the books from my niece or add some to my own collection. I love paranormal and horror books, always have since I was young. I would love to get started reading her books, and this would be a wonderful belated Mothers Day present to me :)

I have not had the opportunity to read any of Stephanie Meyer's books. I have a co-worker that has read the Twilight series about 3 or 4 times,so I would give the book to her.
