Fool for Books Giveaway Hop

It’s that time again! Happy April Fools’ Day and welcome to the Fool for Books Giveaway Hop, hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.

Most of us, and by us I mean readers of this and other book blogs, unfortunately not us as in the wider universe, are fools for books. We are voracious readers and are happy to lose hours if not days in the pages of a good book.

(It may be April Fools’ Day, but at least I wasn’t foolish enough to be using the “Royal We” or “Us” in the previous paragraph. I still have SOME sense!

I don’t know how many of you have had this experience, but my mother always used to ask why I needed more books. After all, I already had so many! It’s impossible to explain to someone who doesn’t read oodles of books why it is so important to have choices. The new ones always look so marvelous, and the keeper shelf is, well, the KEEPER shelf. That’s why those books are there, to be kept and loved again and again.

Never mind the concept of “auto-buy” authors. I might as well be speaking in tongues.

So what books are you a fool for? Or who is on your auto-buy list? And has it changed from last year?

Answer the question for a chance at either a $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Card or the book of your choice up to $10 in value. The books will be coming from The Book Depository for any international entrants, so you’ll need to be in a location that Book Depository ships to.

  1. What I need is a great book to pull me out of my reading slump. I haven’t finished a single book in more than a week, and that’s so not me.

  2. I’m such a fool for fantasy. It doesn’t even have to be that great, and I’ll still devour it.

  3. I am definitely a fool for YA contemporary books. I love romance and coming of age stories; they melt my heart. (:

  4. I like Urban Fantasy in the Charles de Lint or Patricia Briggs style, but also mystery and thrillers like Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series!

  5. I’m a complete fool for paranormal romance πŸ™‚ And I’m a partial fool for the kind of historical fiction/mystery/adventure you get from authors like Dan Brown (but not him anymore; it felt like he had zero desire to write the last Robert Langdon book, and that makes it a snoozefest for me.)

  6. I’m a universal fool–just about any genre/type of book rings my bell. But I’m always game for good space opera.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  7. Mystery books. I can’t get enough of them and I can’t read them fast enough!

  8. I read a ton of romance, but I have to say, my top rated books are usually UF and my auto-buy authors tend to be UF authors (specifically Patricia Briggs and Ilona Andrews).

  9. paranormal, medical thrillers, murder mysteries and police procedurals, historical and sweet romance books

  10. I don’t participate in auto buy, not even sure what that is, lol I haven’t changed my reading likes too much over the years. Stephen King was, is, and always will be on my list of favorite authors πŸ™‚

  11. hehe my hubby is kinda like your mom. Except, I ask for another bookshelf…and he asks why…and I respond that I need more books. He just gives me a “look” and rolls his eyes. lol Some books (or genres) I am a fool for are pretty much anything fantasy.

  12. I’m a foll for all kinds of fantasy and romance. All the better if the two are combined. πŸ™‚

  13. I’m a fool for books — period. But my auto-buy list includes Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Anne Bishop, Michelle Sagara (West), Lee Child, John Sandford and J.D. Robb.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  14. I have actually been reading a variety of genres lately, although I just started reading another dystopian series.

  15. I am a fool for anything Crime related! and fantasy… and distopyian… and oh my lots of things!

  16. All kinds. I will read just about anything. My favorite genre is science fiction/fantasy, but I like historical fiction (romance), mysteries, literary fiction, young adult, horror, even westerns.

  17. Like YA paranormal, Anne Rice and Stephen King. I’ve also found the 50 Shades type books. Didn’t think I liked romance that much, guess so long as there’s a little something else, they’re no so bad… LOL All the books I read have to have some kind action/adventure in them.

  18. I read for the thrill of the new story, the romance, the new love, heartbreak, and the intrigue. As well as the excitement of resolving the issues and recapturing the love to reach a happy ending.
