The time I hit 500 again

Posted September 24, 2013 by Stacee in Giveaways / 70 Comments

You guys.

Today I hit 500 followers on BlogLovin’.  It might not seem like a lot compared to some of the bigger blogs out there, but it’s a lot to me.  And since I’m moving over to self-hosting soon, I’m going to lose all of the followers on GFC [so make the switch!].

I just want to thank you all for following along with me on this crazy ride.  Like I said in this post, I never thought I would continue this blog, let alone have anyone actually read my incessant rambling.

Again, I’m stunned.  Elated.  Speechless.  And another hot mess of flails.


So, let’s celebrate with a giveaway, yes?  This is my second time around hitting 500 followers, so how about a giveaway for some of my favorite second books in a series?

Up for grabs:

13206760 13253276

Hardcover copies of Scarlet by Marissa Meyer and Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi.  Both books are signed! This contest is international.  I’m setting up two different Rafflecopters, so there will be two different winners. Additional rules are on the Rafflecopter widget.

I can’t thank you guys enough for getting me to this number.  So, again, I say: stand there and let me hug you.

  1. Congratulations on hitting 500 on Bloglovin' *does a happy dance*

    Okay, now that's a difficult question!!! I have to say Insurgent by Veronica Roth… I might be the only one though. I had a hangover after that book – not sure if that's a good or a bad sign :S

    Thank you for the amazing giveaway and good luck ;-)

  2. This is so hard! My favorite sequel is…okay can I cheat and say the rest of the Harry Potter series? Yeah? Okay. Good. (Or Once We Were by Kat Zhang or The Madness Underneath if I REALLY had to pick)

  3. Hmm.. A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard or Deception by C.J. Redwine. Those are such amazing sequels!! <3

    Congrats on all your followers! You deserve it!! And thanks for the giveaway!

  4. …That question! It's like asking what my favorite BOOK is. IMPOSSIBLE!
    Uhm a currently two of mine are Magic Study, Maria v Snyder and The Crown of Embers, Rae Carson.
    Both are FANTASTIC.

  5. Wow this is difficult because second books are usually the ones I like the least but one I definitely liked a lot was Catching Fire, my favorite book of the trilogy.

    Thank you for the international giveaway and congratulations :)

  6. Congratulations Stacee!!!! How awesome to reach another milestone! :D

    My favorite second book? Hmm that's a hard one. Can I say all of the Vampire Academy books?! Yes ok! I absolutely loved that series.

  7. Congratulations on this wonderful achievement!
    Wow, I've read so many 2nd books, that picking favorites would be hard.
    Maybe SVH #2: Secrets. Or, “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon”: Vol.2.

  8. Hands down Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas. I really liked the first book but COM just completely blew me away. I can't wait to read the rest of the series to bad its going to take years for them to all come out :)!!!!

  9. Congrats! at teh same time i('m not that surprised because it's more than deserved^^

    favourite second book? river road by suzanne johnson in the sentinel of new orleans series

    thank you!

  10. Most second books I find to not be as good as the first. I just recently read The Maze Runner trilogy which I really liked. The Scorch Trials (#2) was better than the first.

  11. Congrats on hitting 500. That's awesome. My favorite sequel is, Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. Loved it. I haven't gotten to read Scarlet or Through the Ever Night so both are definitely on my TBR list. I just need to get my hands on them. ;) Thanks for the opportunity. And thanks for the hug. I needed it.

  12. Favorite second book? That's a tough one. I'm going to go with The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman from His Dark Materials. Not sure I can qualify that as my all-time second favorite though. I'll have to keep thinking–thanks Stacee!

  13. Second book ? Tough choice but I have to go with 'Lola and the Boy Next Door' by Stephanie Perkins. Another one would be 'Lover Eternal' by J.R.Ward.

  14. Right now I would have to say that my favorite second book is Days of Blood and Starlight, but of course that is also the most recent one that I have read. :)

  15. Pretty sure I was following you on BL already since I switched all of Google reader blogs over but I did it again just in case. Congrats on 500, Stacee. That's pretty amazing. Um, fave books? I have many. I did read Scarlet recently though and loved it.

  16. (Cause it's hard to choose just one) Some of my favorite second books are Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas, Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor, Through the Ever Night b Veronica Rossi..
    Thanks for a giveaway! :)

  17. My favorite second book? Gosh, I don't know; there are so many! I'll go with one that's kind of an oldie and from a favorite series–CATCHING FIRE! Thanks for the giveaway!

  18. I suspect my favourite second book is going to be Time After Time. Insurgent is definitely up there, and of course Evolution. Thank you for the chance at the generous giveaways and congratulations on reaching 500 followers on Bloglovin'.

  19. Favorite second book – The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. The Name of the Wind was amazing, and I think The Wise Man's fear actually managed to surpass it. The praise it's getting as a modern classic in adult fantasy is totally justified.
