  2. What book have you read the most, over and over again and why

    I've read the Significance series over and over again. I absolutely love the series. Caleb and Maggie are a great couple.

  3. My favorite of your books is Significance. It is such a great start to the series. It takes the reader in from the very first page. It was the first of your books that I read and is still my favorite of all your books.

  4. The book I have read over and over again was Defiance. I love the romance of the whole series.

  5. The book I have read the most is Significance. I love it so much because it shows the connection Maggie and Caleb have for each other. Their love is strong and how they need each other to survive.

  6. I absolutely LOVE the Significance series. I was hooked from the beginning of that book to where I then had to read anything else written by you. You are fabulous! Keep 'em coming because I will keep on reading 'em.

  7. the significance series! i love the love story! i love caleb and maggie! i cant get enough of caleb! :) i cant wait for independence! also the providence series by Jamie McGuire i just love nina and jared!

  8. I read Significance the most because I think Caleb and Maggie's meeting is the best in literary fiction and the connection just instant. I love that she comes out of her shell and becomes closer to her father. It was like the instant of Caleb and Maggie meet the world came alive again for Maggie and her father. I just love that and you could tell their love is everlasting.

  9. I would have to say I re- read Defiance the most. It's where a lot of different truths come out and Caleb and Maggie face the most tribulations as well as showing everyone how true they really are. What an amazing couple! And series! I also like this one because Kyle finally finds his happiness as well. :)

  10. I have read the twilight series several times. Just cause I had lovef the whole story and romance. I don't hardly ever reread books...but I have reread Collide cause its my fav book ever. I love everything about it...especially the romance between Merrick and Shelly.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh how pretty! I love when you find something that just speaks to you! I feel a little guilty because, although I have all the Significance books on my TBR list, I haven't actually had the time to read any of them yet. I'm hoping to change that this summer though so fingers crossed things don't get too crazy. lol. I've heard amazing things about this series and the more I hear, the more I want to drop everything I'm doing and leap into the pages.

    I look forward to this giveaway. Thank you so much for hosting it!

    Best of luck!

    1. Oh I forgot to add, the books I've read to the point where the pages fell out and I had to replace the books with a new set is the Harry Potter series to be honest.

      Thank you again!

  12. I agree with everyone above but I think of your books, I've read Defiance the most. I love Caleb, I swear he's my dream guy, but Maggie's the girl that every girl wishes she were. Strong, independent, caring, the perfect balance to everything basically. It doesn't hurt that when she doesn't have the strength she has a pretty amazing guy to help her and give her strength... Not to mention the romance in general and it's amazing writing, a good escape from the real world :)
    But if you're talking about not one of your books, I've read the Mercy Thompson series many times for many of the same reasons, they're a good escape from the real world, good writing, and there's a strong female lead that I wish I were more like. And her male lead is pretty awesome too, though Caleb's more my dream guy :)

  13. Significance would be the book I've read the most. It would be my favorite because it is how it all starts and I just absolutely love the connection Maggie and Caleb have through the whole book. I also love how close Caleb's family is and there dynamic. It was the most exciting book I've read and it is 100% my favorite book!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I absolutely love your books. I have reread them only one time. But I have read The Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis about 2 times each now. I can't wait to read more of your books. I have them all.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have read the Summer series by Jenny Han countless times. They are just a story that never gets old. LOVE!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think The Stand by Stephen King and A Tale of Two Cities by Chuck Dickens are my most-read books. Very different books, but both epic, gripping stories!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Of your books, I would say the significance series. I have re-read them all many times. They are beautifully written, it's so easy to just fall into Maggie and Caleb's world. In my head, I can see everyone and everything as I read those books, I can see the stop light where they met, the beach house, the concerts, the club, the fighting, hiding things from Bish, the tattoos, the tree, and the love. It leaves me wanting more of glimpse into their beautiful life.

    The book or books I re-read that aren't one of yours would be The Fey series by Claudia Hall Christian. I love the strength of the characters, the wit, the love, the fighting, action, the real life struggles, the main character's ability to overcome her depression, the heartache and break is almost overwhelming sometimes, it's another series that I am in love with and fall into that chaotic, suspenseful world and just want more.

    The bracelet is beautiful.

  18. Aside from significance the book I've probably read the most over and over again is the Harry potter series. I love everything about it and every time I re read them I find something new to love. I love the moral lessons and can't wait to read them to my son :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. The book that I have read over and over the most is actually a series in one volume by Nora Roberts-Jewels of the sun, heart of the sea, and tears of the moon. I loved it because the romance in each story is great, its about family and uneding love, and also throws some magic in the mix with fairies :). The bracelet is beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  20. First I would like to say that I love all the books. However the one I have read the most is The Twilight Series but Significance is right up there with that. I love how the writing pulls me in and I get lost in the story. I forget that I should be cleaning house or actually working. I absolutely love the romance too. It's not just some cookie cutter way of what love should be and I think that draws me in even more. I just love that it's not boy meets girl, girl falls for boy, and they live happily every after. They have to go through hardships to have their happily every after which is how it should be. Thank you so much for writing the Significance series, it truly is one of my favorites and I will end up reading it over and over again just as I have done with my other books. =)

  21. Out of all of your books, I have read "Significance" the most...a couple of times so far (in fact, I'm almost finished with it...again! haha). I love it because it's such a good story, and plausible too, unlike many of the paranormal romance reads out there right now. Also, the romance is awesome! The fact that it's set in TN (I live in Cleveland, TN) is really cool too.

    Out of all the books I own...gosh, there's a couple I've reread again and again. "Enchantment" by Orson Scott Card, "Fire" and "Graceling" by Kristin Cashore, the Harry Potter series, and "Pride and Prejudice." The "Abhorsen" series by Garth Nix and the original 3 "Daughter of the Forest" books by Juliet Marillier too. If I had to pick one, though, I'd probably pick the Kristin Cashore series. Those books are so well written, and the stories are unique and moving. You feel like the characters are real, that their WORLD is real. Also, I'm a YA Fiction junkie, so these are some of my go-to books when it seems like I can't find anything to read.

    I'd love to win this contest, and not just for the beautiful bracelet! One thing about reading a book on a Kindle app (iPod) is that the battery runs out WAY too often! A physical copy of a book, while "bulkier," never has that problem. :) That's primarily why I'd love to win this contest--so I can have (autographed!) copies of your books! I re-read them often enough to where it would really come in handy...AND I could loan them out if I wanted to (which I can't do with a Kindle copy). I know if I let a few of my friends borrow the first Significance book that they'd be hooked too, and probably begin their own collection.

  22. There are a couple of books that I have re-read so many times that I have lost count. One of then being Devour by you. I just love the way you combined an incredibly sweet romance with such dark undertones. Also, there is Eli, and well I just love reading about Eli over and over. He is swoon-worthy. Some of the other books I re-read include Obsidian by Jennifer L Armentrout, Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, and The Hush Hush Saga by Becca Fitzpatrick. I don't really know what it is about those books but I never seem to get tired of them, no matter how many times I pick them up. And now that I have fangirled about them, I kind of want to re-read them all again.

    Thanks for hosting this awesome giveaway and I cannot wait to read Revolution and Independence.

  23. I have to say that the Twilight series is the one I have read most often over and over and over again. Being much older than the audience they were written for has given me a new perspective on Love. Edward is so gentlemanly that I could not help but become infatuated. Watching the turmoil between Bella and Jacob....oh my. I have the books in hardbound (never opened), paperback, on my Kindle and my e-reader. My next favorite would be Signifiance. Read them lota and in order when a new one is added. Caleb and Maggie are quite the pair. Keep writting......please.

  24. Significance is the book I have read the most of in this series. It is such an amazing book and you cannot help but fall in love with the characters each time you read it.

    For other authors I have to admit that I have probably read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azcaban the most.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh dear, where do I begin?
    Counting Stars by Michelle Paige Holmes is the one book I have read countless times. Not only is the humor wonderfully fantastic but the way the two fell in love...lets just say, it kills me every time. It had everything from humor, to romance, and some killer tear-jerking moments. It's probably the only book that has ever made me cry.
    Though, going to your series; Significance is the one out of the three that I have read more than once. I just LOVE to relive the moments where Maggie and Caleb first met. That's one of the biggest reasons why I reread the first one every chance I get.
    It's awesome. You're awesome. Caleb is awesome.
    Thank you for this opportunity!

  26. I have read the Twilight Series four times. I felt like each time I read them it goes so fast. So the next time I read them I discover something different. I am a sucker for tortured love stories.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Significance is the book by you I've read the most, so far.... Out of all the other books I read the first one that comes to mind is Bag of Bones by Stephen King.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the 50 shades of Grey series and not to sound like a guy, but I actually LOVE the story, not just the lack of clothes parts! I think I've reread the series 3 times now. However I do skim over most of the sensual parts to get to the story line now. I am waiting for Collide and Significance to be completed so I can start over with them too. It's torture waiting for the next book, so when I read them again I want to have the whole story! Can't believe you left us with a dying Merrick in your last book! Your killing me! :) I love Caleb and Merrick!

    Have a great holiday,

  29. Wow thank you for this amazing giveaway and I just love the bracelet it's so pretty. There are a few books I have rered and still plenty more that I want to reread so this is a tough question. I think my favorite would be The Duff by Kody Keplinger. The story is so honest and realistic. All the characters have such great voices, especially Bianca with her snappy wit and attitude. Plus Wes is so swoon worthy. Yes he starts out a playboy but there is so much to him underneath and the romance was very beautiful. I can easily pick up The Duff and read it again.

  30. I re read the last couple chapters of Catalyst because its so sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. I keep looking for clues about Merrick, and thinking of why Lily keeps doing what she's doing, I am dying waiting for Revolution, and Independence. But Revolution I actually dream about what's going to happen.

  31. I have to say the Twilight series started my love of books. I've read all of that series at least 5 times. Some of my other re-read faves are Significance series and the Need series by Carrie Jones.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The Hunger Games, ive read it 5 or 6 times now, i love how it has such a diffrent idea of what could happen years from now than in any other book ive read.

  33. This is my first give away entry so i'm looking forward to seeing the results even if I don't win. I'm more of a visual person and it wasn't until this year that I started reading in depth (before this year I could count on one hand how many books I had read in 22years), so first I'd like to say thank you because your Significance Books are one of my favourite series I have read so far.

    I'd say one of my favourite books that I have read over and over again is "Night School" by C J Daugherty, the book is a great read. full of mystery and love. I love the way the author described the surroundings which made me visualise the story a whole lot better and this is one of the reasons I find Defiance to be my favourite book from the Significance Series, I was more connected with the environment with this book as well as the the growing chemistry with the characters especially Bish & Jen.

    Looking forward to seeing the results. Good Luck everyone :)

  34. I must admit, and not just saying this, but I have read all of your series multiple times. My favorite is Signifigance. I have read it too many times to count actually. I love the way I am drawn into the characters, they are relateable and the way it is written is just draws me in. Another factor that is one of my key elements of loving a book is that even though there may be drama and such in the characters lives they stick together and don't leave one another thinking that they would be better off and then realize that they were wrong and come back, that just is a huge delete button for me and will not read it again. That is why I love your books.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yours are at the top of my to-read list. For now, the latest book I've read multiple times because I love it SO much is The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell. She has a way with words, her writing is so beautiful it's almost poetic.

    ReplyDelete
  36. The Reckless Magic Series by Rachel Higginson is the one I have read the most. I was so happy to see you posted it as one of your top ten for last year because I completely agree.

    I would love to win the prize pack because I not only LOVE all of your books, but I want to be able to share them with my friends that do not own a kindle. Thank you for this awesome opportunity.

  37. well to be completly honest the book or shall i say books i have re-read over and over are the first 2 books in the Breathing Series by Rebecca Donovan. I am not one for re-reading books, but her books seem to grab me and i find myself wanting to read them again and again, and i get just as emotional everything i read them. But it is thanks to finding her books on my kindle that i stumbled upon and discovered your amazing books! I have read the signifiagance series along with the collide series, and i cant wait for more. next i am to start reading the devour series. I can see myself wanting to re-read both the sgnifiance and collide series just to go thru the stories again and feel the emotions along with the characters. you definitly have a way of making me feel everything the characters are feeling as if they are real and they are so very real in my mind! i find myself being completely drawn in and just wanting more! You have made my top 5 favorite authors along with fisher amelie and tiffany king! i cant wait for whats next!!

  39. The first book I remember reading is "Dawn" by VC Andrews. I must have been around 10 when I first found that book sitting on my older sister's nightstand. I snatched it up at first because it was hers and I was a pain in the butt little sister but I opened it up and read the first couple of pages and became drawn to it. I had to read more and more. I can't compare my life to the title characters but I felt bad for her. Her confusion, her heartbreak, her love. It really drew my into the book. I must have read it a dozen times before my sister discovered where I was hiding it. I cried for Dawn, I felt her loss. I bought myself a copy as soon as I was old enough to save the money and re reread it Lord only knows how many times. Now today when I pick up my copy it's like seeing an old friend and that makes me smile.

  40. I have read Twilight more than any other book I own. I don't even remember the number because I read it so many times I didn't count. The reason why I reread Twilight so much is because it was the first YA paranormal book that got me addicted to reading! Ever since my best friend introduced me to Twilight, I have been reading all things YA with hints of romance like its an addiction. I guess its because of the idea of meeting a boy that can make you fall in love for the first time =], since Ive never been in love before. But I seriously have crushes on too many fictional boys, like Caleb. I did read Significance three times =D. Thank you for the awesome giveaway, your an amazing author and I cant wait for the next chapter in Maggie&Caleb's lives.

  41. When I was a kid I read where the red fern grows about 10 times, idk why but i really loved the book even though it was so sad. It was the first book ever to make me cry

    ReplyDelete
  42. I must say that Significance is my go to book for when I'm in that limbo of needing a pick me up and the beginnings of an amazing HEA. I love the intensity that Caleb and Maggie feel for each other, that deep knowing that true love is out there and its just waiting for you to see it and catch it in all its glory. I love how you capture the emotions of Caleb and Maggie when they're withdrawing, it reminds me of how I used to feel about an ex of mine. I always wanted to be near him and felt bereft when I wasn't. That gut wrenching insecurity of first love and the awakening of understanding and realizing that you are truly the one that they want, that despite everything that life throws at you, you were meant for that person, were meant to find them at that exact time and that feeling of your whole life finally falling into place. That is way I absolutely love reading Significance because even though I have yet to find someone who does all of the things Caleb does to Maggie, I know deep in my heart that he's out there and I just have to keep my eyes open, because who knows I might just need to save his life. ;-)

  43. Whenever I re read something I usually go for the sweet romantic books... they just make me happy... so Significance is definitely one of the ones I always go back to, I also love the Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent!!

  44. The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I've read it like four times now!
    I love the plot and how the story flows. The way Stephenie describes the alien planets.

  45. I have read and reread the Twilight series as well as Harry Potter. Although the most recent reread was Of Witches and Warlocks series by Lacey Weatherford, just fell in love with the characters.

  47. I haven't read the Significance series yet (Yeah I know, shame on me :$) so I'd say it's the Vincent Boys series by Abbi Glines. The two romances are awesome and so well-written. Plus, Beau and Sawyer are two damn hotties... *__*

    Anyways, thank you for the awesome giveaway :D

  51. I have recently gotten back into reading since purchasing my Kindle Fire & finishing grad school. I have to say the Significance series was one of the first things I read and have read through it at least three times since first reading it. I can't wait to see how it all ends!

    ReplyDelete
  52. The books I continuously read over and over again are the Harry Potter books. I started reading them when I was in fourth grade so it's a reminder of my childhood. They remind me of my midnight book releases and movie releases and the excitement of it all. They were the first series I was ever hooked on and the main reason why I love reading so much. J.K. Rowling is an amazing writer. I love picking up my copy and getting lost in such a magical world. The best books are the ones you can get completely lost in and these are definitely some of the best!

    ReplyDelete
  53. o this is a hard one, there are some many books i have reread....depends on my mood. the twilight series is up there. i love ur significance series, but as of lately i have been rereading the fateful series by cheri schmidt, i absolutly love vampire books and the charecters are so well written and it takes such a different spin from twilight you cant help but fall in love!

  55. What book I read over and over again is Saving Grace by Julie Garwood I love how Johanna gets a better life with her second husband and a new family that she doesn't need to fear. Lately I have been re-reading Slammed a lot, since I can't get a enough of it. The slam poetry is beautiful and the Will and Lake are fantastic so I keep going back.

    Thank you for the giveaway!
    I love the significance series. I got withdrawals when I finished reading Defiance and promptly re-read them until I finally found something else to hold me over. :)

  56. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I'll never get tired of it! Anytime I'm sliding into a reading slump, I pick up BD and get excited about reading all over again. The whole story is just incredible, so real. I love all the characters (not just Travis - although - SWOON!!!) and the dialogue sweeps me up every time.

    Thanks for the giveaway, Shelly! <3 your books!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The book I find myself going back to is the Fallen Angels series by Katherine Pine. The 2nd book, Beloved Purgatory, has imagery that demands attention. The leading character becomes a part of you as you see, feel, smell and taste the things she experiences. The relationship between her, the demon who shouldn't love her but does and the guardian angel who isn't supposed to love but may is enthralling. The storyline can get a little outlandish at times but the illustrations and 'less than steamy' moments make you come back for more.

  63. Hi Shelly - what a great giveaway!
    The book I continue to read over and over is Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux. I love it because not only does it have a fabulous romance focus, but it also deals a lot with time travel and the details are just so rich!

  64. Okay, this is a bit embarrassing but the Twilight series was the first that i read multiple times, and introduced me to YA. After that i was hooked to books so i read more, and re-read more books like Divergent(which i'm close to being obsessed with) and Significance because of the love in that story, i just love it! Ooh and the Harry Potter series, i seriously love them!!

  65. Just wanted to say Thank you for the opportunity to win something from you! That is so sweet of you. Ok, So as cliche as it is Twilight is the book that I have read over and over a million times. I love the series so much. I Don't usually reread books, but that one is my favorite. I also reread Reckless Magic series by Rachael Higgenson. I would have to say I really liked that series. All of your books are amazing and I recommend them to my friends too. I have enjoyed all of them. Devoured was my favorite series of yours and collide is a very close second. I'm rambling so I will shut up now. Love ya Shelly!!

  66. This is so sweet and generous! Thanks :)
    Okay, so my favorite book series that I find myself re-reading all the time is the Space Trilogy by C.S.Lewis. I love that series something fierce! I have read it, not kidding, 9 times and counting. I love Lewis's ability to draw his readers into these captivating and magical worlds. He does such a wonderful job. I can smell the exotic trees and mystical waters he is betraying in his writing. His characters are so amazingly real. I just love his ability to bring you right along for the journey.
    BTW with that being said your Devour series was so so amazing. I loved the world that Eli brought Clara to. Wow, I know I will be rereading that one again as well. Thank you for your writing.

  67. I've actually read Significance the most of any books I've ever read. Mainly because I love the complete, unconditional love Maggie and Caleb constantly show to each other. It's such a relief, after all of the love triangles and fighting in so many books that I read to read a book that's just about two people who are truly, completely in love for the whole book, not just part of it and not falling for other people or being apart because of silly misunderstandings. Thanks for giving me some hope that some authors still understand the true meaning of love! ;)

  72. My favorite book would have to be Significance. Seriously. I just mean how can you not like it?!?! I have never really read a book that had me so captivated and into it. I felt like I was a part of the book. I just felt comfortable reading this. I loved how much of a gentleman Caleb is. He always said and did the sweetest things. I love Caleb<3 We all need a Caleb. I can't tell you how many times I have read this book. Honestly, I have read this book more than any other. I just love it. Thanks for such an awesome book! Thank you also for the opportunity to enter in this giveaway. Let's hope for the best.

  73. Significance. Definitely. I got that book and then the same night my grandparents tried to take me to see a musical and I honestly just sat there reading it on my kindle app throughout the drive, intermissions, and dinner (my families used to that with me lol) and I read the entire book by around two the next morning. I just couldn't put it down. I fell in love with the characters, the story, and with the series. Since I've bought the book I have read it 5 more times and even told my friends to go out and buy kindles so that they can read it. Significance is my absolute favorite book and will be for a long time.

  74. My favorite book would have to be Significance. No book has captured me the way this series has. It's difficult to be drawn in by the first page of a book, but I was drawn in from the first sentence of Significance. I find all the characters likable and believable. Caleb is just... Caleb. I mean, how can you not like him? Everyone needs a Caleb. Maggie is so sweet and I love reading from her POV. She worries about everyone before herself and she completely deserves to have Caleb. Everyone could learn a thing or two from Maggie and Caleb. I'm eagerly anticipating Independence even though it will be the last chapter in the journey you've given us.

  75. There isn't a specific book but I've been reading and re-reading the Pern series for the last 20 years or so. Great story told from many different viewpoints.

    ReplyDelete
  76. One of my favorite books to re-read is Jemima J by Jane Green. It's a feel good Chick Lit book about feeling comfortable in your own skin and learning to love yourself the way you are. Definitely worth reading if anyone is looking for a good book!

    ReplyDelete
  77. You know that I LOVE Caleb so the whole Significance series is a re-read. I think Defiance is my favorite one. A close second now is Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire. They are equal book crushes right now :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I've read Significance over and over, whenever I need a pick me up I go right to the corner where they meet... melt! I told my sister about them and now she is hooked as well.

    ReplyDelete
  79. There are so many books I re-read! I think I read the second part of Breaking Dawn the most. I find after I've read books a couple of times, I start skipping to my favorite parts!

    I just found your books recently and have almost worked my way through all of them. I'm sure they will be on the re-read list. Please keep up the good work, I'm dieing to know what happens next!!!!

  80. One of the many books i have read over and over again besides the Significance series is Leopard Moon by Jeannette Batista, the heroine Kess, who is a wereleopard, runs away from her home miami because her brother wishes to mate with her. After a year of running and hiding, she arrives in North Carolina and falls in love with Cormac, a werewolf, who helps her heal and protects her from her brother. I find these types of books alluring and so romantic, I wish i could live as the main character in these books! <3

  81. What book have you read the most, over and over again and why

    To be honest.. I don't EXACTLY have one. But I love re-reading certain scenes of many books. I'll probably say Twilight for this case. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. The book I've re-read almost a gazillion times would be Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. I love it cause of how she describes two completely different people from two different worlds collide and fall in love and fight for each other and find out their not that different after all, I find that real and enticing. I love how Romance YA fiction just makes me melt :P
    I love books that are real, unique, fresh and new, stuff you could relate to and are romantic and Perfect Chemistry gives me just that..of course so does the Significance series :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Well.. That would have to be The Twilight Series. Because it was the first serie that got me hooked on reading that kind of books and I was under the belief that there was no book similar to it. Now that I know about all the many, many, many books that are similar I simply do not have the time to re-read. Thanks for the international giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. There are too many books that i would re-read ,but the one that i read like 30 times is Divergent by Veronica Roth.I love that book and i can't get my hands off of it.I can't explain why,but i think because of the story-and Four ,of course.Thank you for this amazing giveaway and i love your books!

    ReplyDelete
  85. What book have you read the most, over and over again and why?

    I honestly don't re-read every book but somehow I ended up re-reading the Fallen books by each release and it became a habit for all books that have follow-ups.
    So I have read Fallen 4x, Torment 3x, Passion 2x (Fallen in Love 3x..because of the romance!) and I still have to wait for the final installment Rapture to be released here in Holland. *sigh*
    And at the end of the year it will be the Significance installments that I will have to re-read :)!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hmmmmm a tough question indeed! I re-read a lot of the books I own, but the one I've read the most would have to be Twilight. Years ago even before there was talk of a movie adaptation my friend recommended the series to me.
    I've at least re-read it 10 times! I felt so connected to the main character because she was never a normal teenager but a strong young woman. Also the love story was amazing as well :p

    ReplyDelete
  87. The Harry Potter books!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I re-read a lot of my books waiting for the new ones to come out and/or when they come out to be able to have all the details in mind. But the book that I have read the most times is Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers. I love this book for just the pursuit and selfless love that is represented.
    But I must say the significance series is catching up pretty fast.

  89. hey Shelly!
    I love your giveaways for one they are always so amazing! so thank you! but let's see it's hard. I've re read twilight I think the most. I've rea the first 17 times, the second 9 the third 3 and the last one once lol. I was a big twilight fan though not so much anymore. my favorite series are your significance series, Quinn loftis Grey wolves series and CC Hunters series. I definetly has to do with the romance and the paranormal aspect! love both genres but love romance and with signifance and the grey series I think what gets me is the loyalty and commitment they ties and bonds between the couples that draws me and makes me wanna read more! and cc hunters is just the drama that we all may go through at times with guys and it's relatable and just suspenseful. as are both yours and Quinn's but absolutely love you and your work can't wait for indepence!

    I am following your blog as vanessa(:

  90. Thanks for the awesome giveaway Shelly!!!

    The books I've read the most are Significance and The Grey Wolves by Quinn Loftis. I can read Significance over and over just because I have fallen in love with Maggie & Caleb. They are the most adorable couple I've read about and I wish that love like that really did exist outside of books. I can read The Grey Wolves repetitively because the witty banter that takes place between Jacque, Jen & Sally. I love that they have a really strong friendship that allows them to pick on each other and know that it's all in good fun.

  91. I LOVE to reread the Significance series over and over again. The absolut number one reason i like to reread them is because of the romance and also i love the whole paranormal aspect when it comes to reading books. You are also one of my number one authors. I love reading your books. I can't wait for Independence and Revolution to come out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  92. I have to say that the book I read over and over again is The Understorey by Fisher Amelie. It has such sweet, sappy romance and it definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat with the danger. Also, I love when books have sections in the guy's point of view. My favorite part is getting to see how much the guy loves the girl and what he would do for her. I can't wait for the sequel!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hi Shelly, I would have to say that the books I have reread the most would be the twilight series. I am not really proud of the fact, the movies ruined the books for me. They were such great love stories but now, not so much. I have a wide range of books that I have really enjoyed though. The Incarnations of Immortality series by Piers Anthony is a favorite and Samantha Young's Fire Spirits. Anything by Kelly Armstrong or Kim Harrison. Oh and I can't forget the Vampire Academy series.

    I just found your books after seeing a teaser at the end of the first grey wolves book by Quinn Loftis. Looking good so far (Grin) can't put it down...

    ReplyDelete
  94. mmm... i believed the one i read the most is harry potter.. but pride and prejudice would have been a close call considering how many times i watch the movie.. yeah i understand not the same.. way better to read it.. but i get cought in the history the clothes how thing where in those times.. its just great.. i also love Lord of the rings. from recent ones i guess i will not get tired of reading the Divergent series or the Significance series.. i realy love how everything is told.. how each felling and sensation is describe..

    ReplyDelete
  95. this is so awesome!! well I have read read "significance over and over again, and the reason for it is -All the love and caring not only maggie and caleb but his familys acceptance of her and the love they have and to show how family (her dad) realizes how he had been and starts to act right by her again, but mainly for maggie and caleb,
    and lets not forget i have read devoured more than once, this books shows how anyone can find acceptance and love no matter how bad they were:)and the grey wolves series these books are are great, they make you laugh. tammy

    ReplyDelete
  96. I have read Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire, Forget You by Jennifer Echols, The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Geek Girl more than once. Also Fifty Shades of Gray and Wuthering Heights. They are all very different books, but each one grabbed me for different reasons. I love discovering great books. I can't wait to read all of yours.

    ReplyDelete
  97. OMG I got so excited about this!!

    Besides the Significance series (which I read a lot). I've read the Premonition series (by Amy A. Bartol). I absolutely love both of these series because of the romance and the paranormal aspect of them. But my all time favorite FAVORITE book that I have read so much that my copy is on the verge of falling apart is Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I don't know exactly what draws me in to the story, but it never gets old for me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. What book have you read the most, over and over again and why?

    There are quite a few of books that I have read over and over again. Yours are right up there, but I have to say the book I have read over nand over again is Breathe by Abbi Glines. For one the romance is very swoony, and I love how in love Jax and Sadie are. I love the song and everything about their romance!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I reread the Harry Potter series pretty much every summer. I grew up right along with Harry, and the Harry Potter series is one of the reasons I have grown to love reading so much. It was also my first real introduction into the realm of magic, the supernatural, and the paranormal, which is now almost all I read. I mostly read YA love stories, but there is something about the Harry Potter series that will always speak to me. I will always love the Harry Potter books, and I do not think I will ever outgrow them.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I think Little Women is probably the most reread book in my library.

    ReplyDelete
  101. There are a few I've read repeatedly, including Significance and Accordance, but I think the one I've reread the most times is The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Some people hate the book, but I absolutely adore it. I thought it was a neat, unique premise, intricate situation, a really sweet love story, and deep insight into what it really means to be human.

  102. Honestly, Harry Potter series. It first came out when I was young and the last one came out when I was in college. I read some of them over and over and have probably read the whole series three times. I just couldn't get enough. It will always remind me of growing up :)

    ReplyDelete
  103. One book that i would say that i have read alot is Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles!!! I LOVE the chemistry between Carlos and Kiara so much that i could just die. I also loved the humour in the book (which actually had me rolling on the floor at times lol) and i seriously fell in love with Tuck a little bit!! It was kool that you still got to see Alex and Brittany because i did love Perfect Chemistry and i liked how they built the sexual tension between Carlos and Kiara instead of just jumping to sex -which is super common is YA books these days:(- Carlos & Kiara are by far the cutest couple EVER!!! And it doesn't hurt that Carlos is described as super hott lol!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I honestly can't narrow it down to just one book. Some books that I've read a lot would have to be, definitely, the Significance series (everything about the series is just magically put together), and That Boy by: Jillian Dodd (it's the most perfect love story I've ever read) and the Kissed by an Angel series by Elizabeth Chandler (I love the relationship between Ivy and Tristan)... :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. The two series i have read over and over again is your Significance series and the Birthright Trilogy by Nicole MacDonald. The love is so swoony and its easy to get caught in the story again and again. They're also quite fast paced!
    Really really really can't wait for independence!!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I honestly can say that it's not just a book but your entire series of Signifance. I am currently in the process of filing for divorce. But your series is actually giving me hope that love exsists. That maybe out there is my one perfect love like Caleb and Maggie. On days that I curl up and wish that I could just die from this broken heart, I think of the love between Caleb and Maggie, then decide that I'd rather lose myself in your books. I laugh with them and cry with them. The way family comes together and stands by them makes me want to be apart of that. U have inspired me to want that for my reality. Thank you for helping me cope when no one is ablt to understand or offer much of a shoulder.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Thanks for this giveaway, Shelly!

    To be honest, I have read Significance about 5 or more times. I absolutely adore this book and series! But other than you, I've read over and over: Twilight Series, The Vincent Boys, Anew by Chelsea Fine, My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking, and the Fallen Star by Jessica Sorencen. :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. I have yet to read a book twice. There are many on my list that I would like to read again, but my to-read list is just so long that I choose to keep going rather than reread. A few on my reread list are Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire, Slammed by Colleen Hoover, Flat out Love by Jessica Park, and the Fifty Shades of Grey series by E.L. James.

    ReplyDelete
  109. The Vampire Academy. Just because I love Rose's character and because she's stuck in this thing, you know...she's 17 and Dimitri 24 and at first their relationship might seem impossible. And I know how that feels. I totally find myself in this book, and that's way.
    Awesome giveaway, btw. HAven't read any of your books but I hope to do it very soon!

  110. I don't typically read the same books over and over again. I know, I'm weird. I like to hop to the next adventure. But, when the Twilight books all first came out, I did read them a few times. They made it so easy to escape. Thank you for the giveaway :o)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Thank you for this awesome give away, and also thank you for sharing these amazing stories. The book I read over and over is His Lady Mistress by Elizabeth Rolls. You just cant help but be pulled into Verity's pain and hope she gets the happy ending she deserves. However this isnt the only one I re read that list would go on forever. This book is just at the top of the list. Again thank you for sharing this and your stories with us Im so glad I ran across all your books. Never stop writing :-)

    ReplyDelete
  112. Beautiful Disaster did it for me. I've read it so many times I think I have it memorized. There is something about a bad boy who falls for the good girl and does everything under the sun to f*ck it up that tugs at my heart every time! Abby doesn't give up on Travis despite all of his monumental brain slips. Instead it strengthens their love and you find out in the end if love really does conquer all.
    Don't get me wrong, I ♥ your series and I pimp them out when friends need new good reads, but that is the one book I find myself going back to time and time again.

  113. Mine was actually a middle grade series called Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. I first read it for my son and I laughed so much that since then Ive reread them so many times. They never fail to cheer me up.

  114. My book is pride and prejudice by Jane Austen. I first read it when I was about 12. My mum wanted to me to start reading more and said that this book was a classic that everyone should read. I grumbled pretty much for the whole first half about reading such a "boring book". Then the more I read I started to get invested in the characters and fell in love with Mr Darcy and admired Elizabeth's fire and strength. I read it all the time now whenever I need cheering up. Its what first got me into books and now since then I read every day.

    ReplyDelete
  115. The book that I have read the most is The Outsiders, by S. E. Hinton. I LOVE this book because it shows just how much you can accomplish with the love and support of your family. . . .either blood family or the family that you choose. It is a wonderful book and anyone who hasnt read it, should definately read it!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I would love to win!! I have read all of your books over and over. The book I have read the most would probably be Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I adore that book!! It has everything, the romance is so swoony, the writing grabs me and the heartbreak is so heartbreaking!!

    ReplyDelete
  117. The book(s) i read the most are the Harry Potter series! I just can't help myslef, they never get old!

    ReplyDelete
  118. Some of the books that I have reread the most is probably the Fateful Trilogy by Cheri Schmidt. Some parts are just really sweet and it never really gets old when I go back and read it again. Other books that I can't seem to stop rereading are Wishing For Someday Soon by Tiffany King, Sophie and Carter by Chelsea Fine, and The Trylle Trilogy and My Blood Approves series by Amanda Hocking. But none of these books can compete for my love of your books. Wether its the Significance series, the Collide series, the Consumed series or even the Stealing Grace series, I can't seem to put down your books. When I go to reread your books I call it my own little Crane Fest and just reread all your books in the shortest amount of time possible. I can't wait for more of your books to add to my Crane Fest so keep them coming :)

  119. Shelly... You know your made of AWEsome .. right? RIGHT?? Ok good :)

    Well... I have read and re-read the Twilight books so many times I cannot count... Then The Blackdagger Brotherhood books *rawr* But I will have to say I haven't done but 2 re-reads of Significance Series as of yet... although I have bookmarked all the really great SWOONYness of them and read those OFTEN!

    Why have I read those over and over ... Well still for some unknown reason Twilight still hooks me and sucks me in... and as for the BlackDagger Brotherhood books... well if you haven't read them then you need to because you are srsly missing out on some fanfreakin tastic males!

  121. My kiss-ass, yet honest, answer would have to be the Significance series. I just reread everything about 2 weeks ago, yet it still didn't tide me over. If anything, it increased my anticipation for the concluding book. Maggie and Caleb are just so amazing, together and apart, romantically and non-romantically.

    My non-kiss-ass answer would be Cassie Clare's The Mortal Instruments. Each book is just funny, action-packed, heartbreaking, and unexpected.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love rereading good books, especially when their sequels come out. So your Significance & Collide series will be among my fav rereads, especially when the 4th books finally comes out. I also have loved rereading: Harry Potter series, Twilight series, Divergent, Hunger Games series, Beautiful Disaster, There You'll Find Me, Anne of Green Gables series, etc. Slammed, Point of Retreat, Blood Red Road, Brightly Woven, and Jenny Han's Summer series will be added to the list soon. So many good books!

  123. To be honest, i rarely read books again unless it is The Significance Series, The Harry Potter Series, The Grey Wolves Series, the Vampire Diaries, and the book The Mayfair Moon. Most of the time I read each book in one night because I cant put it down and that happens to be just the thing with your series. I think you are an amazing writer and that you should keep writing more amazing books and I cant wait until Smash Into You comes out!

  124. I have re-read the The Mortal Instruments and the House of Night too many times to count. I seem to find something I missed every time I re-read them. Or they make me laugh out loud again. The leading ladies have developed so much over the series that I can't wait to see what in store for them.

  125. My name is Jess and I have to say that I'm in love with the signifigance series. You did such a good job on writing them. Their my favorite books right now.

I've read so many books but yours are still at the top.

  129. My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and I've re-read it about 16 times. I'm a HUGE fan of Elizabeithan English and I enjoy the challenge of discovering new meanings behind the wording. As a Literature buff, I've been raised to appreciate the classics and what they have helped form. Every love story somehow relates to P&P, which makes it one of the original romances.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hmm... that is a hard question. To be honest, I couldn't pick just ONE book to read over and over again because I love all of my books and reading them all over and over again would make me feel like I was picking favourites (even if they were inanimate objects). But, if I had to choose for the Significance series, it would probably be Defiance because it the book I just love that people are starting to find their significance again and to see all of that love makes my heart swell and brings tears to my eyes.

    Thank you so for the giveaway!

  131. I cannot tell you how many times i have read To Kill A Mockingbird. I have always thought the world would be a better place if there were more people like Atticus Finch. He just believed in finding the best in people, and he tried to bring his children up that way. He tried to teach them to not judge people, to fight for what you believe is right, and to help people because you can not because of what they can offer you. This crazy world needs people like that.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Significance, is the book I goto when I am trying to find my next book, I LOVE when Caleb and Maggie first meet, I could read that over and over... Then when she meets the family. I also re-read certain "feel good" moments... Like when he lets her see when he told his family he found his one, his significant. When Maggie becomes the Visionary, and runs out. And when she gets her tattoo (I still want to get a tattoo!!) I love so many aspects of this series and always turn for that make your heart go pitter patter when I need it.

    When I need to laugh I will read The Grey Wolves Series by Quinn Loftis her first book just makes me laugh out load! I love me some of those Fur Balls!!!

  133. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin. I've read the book so many times I can't even count how many. I've seen both versions of the movie over and over (I have both). I wish I could articulate exactly why I love it but I can't, I just do.

    ReplyDelete
  134. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. when I was younger. Just because I loved it!!

  135. I rarely re-read books for pleasure...there are just WAY too many good ones! However, I DO re-read the books I teach my students, The Cay, Holes, and The Miracle Worker...I DO love them, even if I've had to dissect them at least 10 times now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  136. I would honestly read any of the Significance books over and over again. What makes the series so appealing and addicting is the entire story. It seems that when things are most bleak, the Aces find their soul mates and make their world a little bit more right. It's a truely inspired story. Thank you for sharing. We are all waiting impaitently for Independence! Write fast!

    Thank you so much!

  137. This is so difficult because I am a compulsive re-reader:) So my top (in so specific order)are:

    Iron Fey Series
    Wow I could go on and on but these are my top!

    The one that always gives me everything that I want is The Mortal Instruments series....
    It has it all, suspense, intrigue, action, passion, Jace Wayland, great characters, great plot, cliffhangers to keep you biting your nails til the next installment

    ReplyDelete
  142. There are very few books that I re-read, the main reason is that I have to absolutely, without a doubt, be willing to marry (I don't often proclaim my desire to marry inanimate objects) and cherish the book before re-reading it.

    The *extremely* few exceptions from this rule I have established, are Beautiful Disaster- which I believe has more bookmarked pages than not; Significance- of course, which after going through a funk that led me to believe that there would never be a good book again, made me so glad I found 'the one'; and Heart on a Chain- which everytime I read, I cry so much that my pillow case is soaked by the time I am 20% through.

    While I am unsure as to if you wanted an answer that is three paragraphs long, I love all of your books so much- I am also known in the book world as My Book Friend... Thanks so much for the opportunity to even dream of getting signed copies!

  143. Wow, I've read a lot of books but when it comes to re-reading favourites it's the Significance series, especially Significance.I just love how the meet and the connection between Maggie and Caleb. Read it so many times, love it. Also the Grey Wolves series by Quinn Loftis and the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I guess you can say that I don't like loner books, really like them in series. But of those couldn't pick a favourite because I love them all. Thanks so much for the giveaway! Really excited, this is the first one I've entered. Keep writing! Really love love your books :)

  144. Well, there are lots of books that I have read over and over again. Basically, if I re-read one book in a series, I'll re-read the rest of the books in the series. So I can't just have ONE book. But if I had to choose it would be 'Prince of Wolves' by Quinn Loftis. Is it wrong for me to say that I like the book because of the cover? I do like the actual book, I especially like Fane *swoon*, but the cover is gorgeous. I think I like the cover so much is because I have red hair and the girl on the cover has red hair so that means that we are both part of the ranga-tang gang. HA! (sorry, inside joke) I know the saying goes 'don't judge a book by it's cover' but I can't help it if I do judge a book by it's cover. If I see a book that has a really nice cover (especially ones that have red heads)I will buy it. Sorry, I'm getting off topic here, so to sum it up, the book I have re-read the most is Prince of Wolves. (Go red heads!!)

  145. The book i have read the most is probably Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I don't know why. she's not an overly girly character and easy enough ton relate to and i just can't resist being drawn in time and again by Daemon he's such a captivating character. :)

  146. Hey there.

    The book I have read lots of times is called, Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness.

    I reason I have read this lots of times is simply because as soon as I read the book, it had me immersed in a new world which I enjoyed very much. The concept of the book was brilliant because the story line is very different and fresh.

    Vampires, witches and daemons, all in one book was a brilliant idea, and it worked very well! Bringing together history and fantasy was a brilliant idea, and it makes the story fascinating.
    Oooh, and the romance, if your a woman, it just makes you want to curl up, hug the book to your chest and swoon!
    Also Matthew is very mysterious and dangerous, but also fascinating and a very alluring character who keeps your intrigued by his fascination about Diana, who keeps you glued to the pages with at first her denial, and then her acceptance of who she is and how she grows into the young woman who she is meant to be.

    If anyone wants a new book to read, this is the book I recommend every time! As long as they haven't already read it.

    I am very much looking forward to the next book, Shadow of Night, which no doubt, I will again read many times!

  147. The one book that I cannot get enough of would have to be...Jane Eyre. I love everything about it: diction, syntax, character development, and plot. This book took me on the biggest emotional roller coaster I have ever been on. I literally threw the book across the room when Jane left Rochester. I believe this is a book that everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) should read sometime in their lifetime.

  149. This year I have reread The River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergen a few times, and The Significance series by you, have been my top two rereads.

    The River of Time books are so different from all the paranormal stories I've been reading I just fell in love with the new plot line. It's got everything you could want, theirs a Boy and a Girl, a lost sister, Battles with swords and arrows, an engagement that just doesn't seem right, Beautiful gowns, comedy, more Battles, close calls, friends who are foes, a Heroine that kicks butt and takes names, and did I mention that all this happened because two sister traveled back in time to 1300's Italy! Will they get back to their time, can they? But our heroine has to find her sister first, what has happened to her sister? The only thing this book didn't have was a "for sure permanent love" the couple will be together forever deal (don't get me wrong, there's a great love story here two), but that's why I loved Significance!

    Significance is paranormal yes, (which i like), but it was different in the way that the couple didn't even know each other, and BAM they're linked Heart and Soul. I really enjoy that they have to get to know each other even though it's meant to be ;) And doesn't every girl wish that there was only one Guy out there with her name etched in his heart.... sigh. I want a Love like Maggie and Caleb!

  150. I reread books all the time. Whether it is because a sequel is coming out soon or just because I really enjoyed it the first time. However, there are only two series that I'll admit to reading five times each, because they don't ever get old. These two series are The Tale of Lunamorte by Samantha Young and the Significance Series by you, Shelly Crane. I'm a sucker for a good paranormal romance story. I love the magical elements, but I also love a good romantic story.

    For the Lunamorte series, I just love how Samantha Young writes. She writes in a way that makes readers not want to stop. After I finished the first book, I just had to read the other two. She's able to capture the characters emotions so well, that I started talking to my book. I got frustrated with characters when they didn't do what I wanted them too, but I like it when an author is able to bring that sort of reaction of me. I loved the characters. Caia and Lucian are so well written. I got frustrated with both of them, but also loved them at the same time. Paranormal aspects are the rage right now, but she brought a fresh perspective to the werewolf world. It was intriguing and I couldn't stop reading it.

    The Significance series is just great. Shelly Crane writes in such a way that you also connect with the characters. And Caleb is totally swoon-worthy. I hope that someday I find someone like Caleb. He's perfect. I love the whole Soul mate concept. Everyone wants their happily ever after and it's nice to read a story where two characters are absolutely perfect for each other. I love how family oriented Caleb is. I come from a large family and know how chaotic and amazing is can be. Maggie and Caleb's relationship is so well written, I love it. I also love Bish. I hope that his story with Jen ends well. They both deserve it. I can't wait to find out how the next story ends and I'll continue reading the series until I find out.

  152. I re-read books all the time!
    And every time I feel like I am meeting an old friend again <3

    But if I should just mention one book I have to say 'The vampire academy' series by Richelle Mead.
    This series has really times that it feels like they rip out the heart throw it on the ground and stepped on it, only to dust it off and pushing it in again.
    and I do not know but when a book can affect one as much so you laugh out loud one moment and then be in a fetal position and cry the next, so I can not help coming back.

    But if we would talk about your books, I have to say Significance! <3
    One thing I really love about it Is that it shows That fairytale love that is so beautiful. it is a love that is so pure, and eventhough I can feel a little jealous, it's so amazing to read about, because i think it is something That every man Should see, and not just in a place far away or in a time long ago, but here and now.
    And it makes me feel all warm and cozy every time ~

  153. Rather than re-reading an entire book, I much rather re-read snippets and chapters that encompass my favorite parts of each book. That being said, there are those books, that are so magnificent, that i get sucked in into re-reading them from cover to cover. Except for the last one, I've re-read every Harry Potter book two or three times. I used to re-read Twilight when I had a really bad day at school and lately, I sometimes find myself re-reading the Vincent Boys by Abbi Glines and Forever Mine by Elizabeth Reyes when i feel down. Though i haven't re-read any of the Significance books, I do go over my favorite scenes every once in a while. My favorite one to re-visit is when Kyle imprints, that one just makes me smile so big every time :)

  154. I have 3 most favourite series that I read over and over the My Blood Approves series by Amanda Hocking which I’ve read like 4 times, the Strange Angels series by Lili St Crow which I’ve read 5 time and the Significant series which right now I’m reading for the third time. I love these books so much because they all have a strong female main character or heroin but they all have a really nice guy to help them when they need it.

    ReplyDelete
  155. First I just have to say that the significance series is is my all time favorite series. Other than you books I have read the twilight series the most. I've read them over and over and I still cant get enough. The reason I am such a huge fan of these series is because I'm love with that kind of all consuming love between two people. When they just cant live without one another and just the thought of it physically pains them. These two series have that and I just cant get enough of them. So thank you Shelly for sharing your beautiful writing with us.

  156. I am sorry and i love caleb but i can not stop reading Wisdom by Amanda Hocking because there is something in Jack that makes my heart patter, he is my kind of guy all the way. And as much as i swoon over caleb, Jack is just amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I have several favorite series Significance and Hush Hush being a couple of them. The one that I have read over and over again is the Twilight series. It is one book that I can just read over and over and not get tired of. I will say that any of my favorite series are great to pick up and read again, I just cannot get enough of the characters and the way the story pulls you in.

    ReplyDelete
  158. hmm ... that`s a hard question,
    i really don't re-read books again but i refresh my memory of the book in my head and it gives me the feeling that i`m re-reading it again.

    so for this question... my answer is, Beastly by Alex Flinn because
    i love happily ever after endings and i think that the author is trying to say " Don't judge people on the outside ".

    ReplyDelete
  159. I only books/series I've reread would be the Dear Dumb Diary books by Jim Benton. I know it's a super silly and kid book but I had so much fun reading them when I was younger that sometimes I just want to go back to that first "huge" book that I've read. I'll never forget the feeling of accomplishment when I first finished it. & I couldn't shut up about it afterwards for about 2 weeks, so it totally deserves a mention.

  160. The book I have read the most is "A Child Called It". Great book just makes you very thankful for the life you have & the people in it. It's amazing how Dave Pelzer is able to share his horrific childhood. He is very inspirational.

  161. The book I have re-read the most would probably be Sterling, the first book in the Mageri Series, by Dannika Dark. I love it because of the storyline and the characters.

  162. I have re-read significance the most because I love it SOOO much! I love the storyline and the bond that Caleb and Maggie share. I think it would be amazing to have that kind of connection with someone and I can only hope that one day I find the right guy. (perhaps I will save him from being run over at a stoplight ;) ) anyway I just love your books so much!!!!! Keep writing :)

  163. I have read your books specifically The Significance series because I love the main characters and the romance is spot on. Also I love the length and action... everything about it! :D

  164. I have re-read significance the most because I fell in love with the characters and the deep love they have for each other. It makes me feel hopeful that there is a such thing as soulmates and someone who will love you no matter what.

  165. I would have to say that I've re-read A Discovery of Witches the most. The book is filled with wonderful details and the characters are all flawed and human (while also being supernatural), which I love in my paranormal characters. There's also an epic love story which appeals to me as well.

    ReplyDelete
  166. There are so many books that i have read over and over again but significance is definitely one that stood out. I felt like I could relate to most of the characters in the book and it is a really endearing story. I really wish I could find someone that I could share a connection with, the way that Caleb and Maggie do in the book. Your books are amazing! Keep on writing:)

    ReplyDelete
  167. If we are talking about the Significance Series, then I would have to say Defiance is the one I could read over and over. THere is just so much going on and I love that Maggie is becoming so strong in her new role.

    The other book that I could read over and over is On the Island by, Tracy Garvis-Graves. Its such an inspiring love story of two people who would never have normally ended up together had they been in different circumstances.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I have a lot of books that I plan to read again (Significance series included) but never seem to get to the re-read list because by TBR list is so huge! The only book I can remember reading more than once is Twilight, and that was because of the swoony romance. Some other books I plan to re-read are Shiver and The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, and Slammed by Colleen Hoover. These are books that made me fall in love and made my heart break. I'll re-read the Significane series because of Caleb - love him, he's my favorite book boyfriend.
    Thanks for offering this awesome giveaway! I love just looking at those covers! I wish my ebooks of Significance and Accordance had the new covers, but I bought them before the covers changed. sigh :)

  169. The book I have read the most, is Collide =) I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! And read it almost every week. It is almost tied with the Classic Beauty &the Beast, the classics never fail!

  173. I think the one book I have read over and over again over the years is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
    I was diagnosed with ADD with a side of mild depression and anxiety when I was 18, and before I began treatment the only thing I could really focus on was reading. For anything else my attention was scattered so I couldn't really bring myself to commit to anything like I should, or like I was committed to reading; that made me anxious, and that made me sad because I felt like I was running in circles and not doing anything with my life.
    I found this book a while before the diagnosis and for me it was like the light at the end of my tunnel. Sometimes you're lucky enough to read a book that speaks to you and gives you life lessons and helps you see that you're not alone and gives you hope. That was it for me. So now every time I feel a little off I pick up my Wallflower copy and read, because "this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be."

  174. ok I'm 29 & have just found out that I love reading!! If you would have asked me 6 mths ago if i liked reading, I would have told you I despise the very thought of reading a book.. The 1st book I have ever had the desire to read was the Hunger Games & I bought it the day the movie opened in theaters. I was instantly hooked & immediately bought the next 2. Since then I have read a total of 31 books.. Yes!! 31 books in 4 mths so far. I would have never in a million years thought I would become a "book nerd" or be obsessed w/ reading.. but I am & I love it. I love finding new books/series to fall in love with. My husband & kids think I'm a lil crazy now, but I wouldn't change a thing.. well, except for the fact that I wish I would have found out sooner that I actually like to read!! Since I'm constantly finding new books to read, I don't have a favorite. But, if I had to pick one, I would say the Hunger Games b/c it truly opened my eyes & mind to a world I have been depriving myself of!!

  175. I've think I've read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Bloom over and over and over the most. Although, I am a fourth grade teacher and I read it aloud every year at the beginning of the year to get the kids interested in books other than Junie B. Jones and Arthur. It's great! The love Fudge's little lisp the best. Next would probably be Harry Potter and the Scorcer's Stone because it's hella awesome!

  176. I have to say that my favorite series is The Madly series. There is just something about Jackson that makes me melt. The Significance series is very close to that but Jackson is tall muscle-y and the eyes!!!!

  177. Hi, I have read many books over and over including the twilight saga and your book significance, but the book that I have read to many times to count that its falling apart and I could still read it again tomorrow and I would love it the same is Sherrylin Kenyons dark hunters, "night play". Vane is my kinda hero, soft but tough, gorgeous and loves Bride who is not super skinny or gorgeous but a normal looking woman. On Facebook they do role play of all her dark hunters so I get to see there life's still going on to the point they now have two children, I just love this, I hate when a book ends and you don't know how there life ends up, now I can see Vane and Brides life everyday on face book lol x

  179. Wow, this is an amazing giveaway!!! *squeals*
    First off, thank you so much for doing it!!

    Okay, now for the question: What book have you read the most, over and over again and why?

    It's kind of hard to answer that question because I have so many books I read over and over for varies reason! And I just can't think of all the books I have read and read and read!! Of course I LOVE reading the Significance books!!! I mean you did write them and they are fantabulous!! :)
    I know I absolutely love the Lux books by Jennifer L. Armentrout. They are just amazing and well, so swoon worthy!!
    The characters are what I love the most.
    I also love the Hush, Hush books by Becca Fitzpatrick! It has Patch in it, that's all the reason I need to read it over and over again!! :)
    I actually just got done re-reading Brightest Kind of Darkness by P.T. Michelle for the 4th time!!(can't wait for the second book!!)The world she created is very unique and I love the story so much!
    I also enjoy the Inheritance books by Christopher Paolini, it has dragons!!!!
    The Divergent books are also so amazing! Love escaping into a dystopia books like Divergent :)
    The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is also one I love to re-read! During high school me and my friends read this book and fall in love with it, we had only one copy and by the end of the year it was so worn!! Always brings back nice memories when I read it.

    Gah! I could go on and on with the books I love to read over and over. The ones I listed are beautiful and amazing in there own way. They are books that I love to escape into and be consumed in! And no matter how many times I read them, I just don't get tired of them!

    Now I wanna go read all these books again!!

    Thank you so much for hosting this amazing giveaway!! (and I really can't wait to read Independence!!)

  180. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins because the main character is so REAL! Like, I would definitely see someone acting like that! She's awkward and so are some situations, which i can totally relate to! The romance isn't rushed and the other couples are believable. It's not love at first sight, it's REAL. Haha I'm pretty repetitive when I describe this book. But i love your work too! =) hope i win that copy!

  181. Of your books, I would say I've read Significance over and over again. The love that Caleb and Maggie share even in their first days is incredible and it's so hard to find in any other book that I've read.

    Another book that I've probably read at least 20 times is Sabriel, by Garth Nix. It's just so dark and different that it keeps me coming back for more.

    Can't wait for Independence!

  182. I haven't read the books yet, but I heard they're amazing, so they're already on my TBR pile :D I think the only books I once kept re-reading were the Twilight books. I loved them so much, I couldn't put them down, and when I finished I missed the characters so much I had to pick the books up again xD But I have a lots of favorites which I think I'll re-read. The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent for example, or Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout, Divergent by Veronica Roth!
    Can't wait to read your books! The covers looks beautiful! *.*

  183. Omg, this is the best giveaway ever! One of the books I've read the most would be Significance. I am absolutely so much in love with Caleb. He is the absolute sweetest, most loving, perfectly amazing guy ever! I want to find my own Caleb some day *sighs* so I read it over and over and over again. The romance, the action, the writing, the enemies, the characters, everything makes it one of the most amazing books I have ever read!
    Another book I loved the heck out of would be Obsidian, by Jennifer L Armentrout. Daemon is so yummy and I love the whole Luxen idea. I also re-read Heart on a Chain by Cindy C Bennett so many times, as I loved the storyline, and all the things that Kate has to struggle through that made her such an amazing character to read about, and her story such an engrossing one.
    I read a lot, so there are many other options, but these ones will have to do.

    1. there are so many books i love to read over and over (including yours) but one i just really never tire of is Trust in Advertising by Victoria Michaels. The story is fun and has romance but at the same time thats not all its about. It completely entertains me and Lexi, the main character is one i root for everytime. Her friends and family are hysterical and so great. Another book i just have to mention is the Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I've truly never read a book like this before and have never been able to feel the same sense of mystery yet excitement (just like the characters) in a book. I couldn't put it down yet waited as long as i could to finish to make it last longer haha!

  190. Just finished the series in one day, need more.

    The series i've read the most of is actually not YA so i hope my answer is ok. lol. I've read Nora Roberts Donovan Legacy series over and over..usually one or two times a year since i got my copy back when i was a teen. I think it's because it was the first paranormal series i ever read (i'm talking about the mid to late 90's here, kids, when if we wanted paranormal, we had to go adult lol). I've also read Laurel K Hamilton's Anita Blake series more times than is healthy. I'd say the YA series I've read the most (so far) is probably Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, which has only been twice..but i'm a repeat reader when a series reaches out and touches me.

  192. I'm so hopeful to win these! One of the books that I've read over and over again is The Mind Reader by R.L. Stine. It was a book that reached to me as a youngster! The twists were awesome and you don't see the ending coming. Another book I've read ALOT is Dawn by V.C. Andrews. I am a singer and so the lifestyle in that series was awesome! The things that happened in Dawn are things that make you go wow and they never leave your mind. Because of that, it is one of my very favorite books!
