Book-to-Movie E-Book GIVEAWAY!

Hey everyone!

If you've been following my blog, then most of you already know that Wednesdays are when I post book reviews. Since I just finished reading The Moon Coin by: Richard Due last night, I knew there was no way I was going to be able to have a review done by today. So I started thinking...

My first attempt at a Giveaway a few weeks ago was not very successful, but you live and learn, right?

Since book-to-movie adaptations have been very popular as of late and on people's minds, I decided to try my second attempt at a Giveaway...and boy is everyone in for a treat!

One lucky winner will walk away with 2 out of these 15 e-books below to choose from! Each of these books have either already become a movie/tv series, or the movie version is in the works/coming out soon! Depending on the responses I get, I may choose a 2nd winner. We shall see. Below are the instructions/rules on how to enter the giveaway.

  1. gfc follower as ani hearts japan.

    I'm not sure which format I need, but I have a regular kindle...

    My choices:

    The Host

    The Lucky One

  2. GFC as RUth Benitez

    I want:
    Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
    Water for Elephants
    Both in EPub!

    I saw the movie for Water for elephants, and I love it! And I wanted to read or seen the movie from Extremy... since I heard from it!

  3. GFC under martha campos

    i choose : the host and water for elephants.
    both for kindle.

    I chose these two books because they are some of my favorites. I read water for elephants before i saw the movie and instantly fell in love with the book and the same goes for the host (even though the movies hasnt come out yet).

    Thanks for the giveaway.
    Hope I win.
    Fingers and anything else i can cross is crossed.
    -martha :D

  4. Would love to win "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "The Girl Who Played with Fire" in .epub because I've been interested in reading these for awhile, and it's a genre I enjoy! I follow with GFC (Katy S). Thanks for a great giveaway! katy.sozaeva (at)

  5. Hello,
    Firstly thanks for a great giveaway!
    I follow via GFC as Jeanz
    My e-mail address is
    I would like kindle/mobi format please
    I would love to win Sarah's Keys - It sounds like am amazing book, I have not come across it before but will definitely look out for it now.
    For a second choice it would be Water For Elephants as I wanted to go to the cinema to see this (so I have heard of this) but am unable to go to the cinema as I have Menieres disease so cannot cope with the sounds/experience etc of the cinema so I have to either buy the book or wait for the dvd!

    Thankyou again

  6. Hi! Thanks for the great giveaway! I think I set myself up correctly to follow your blog. I don't follow many so hopefully I answer your questions correctly:

    GFC (i don't even know what that stands for) but I think it is either Katie or Katie HB


    Form: Epub (nook compatible)

    1. Breaking Dawn
    2. The Lucky One

    I picked these books for a few reasons. 1- Quite honestly, I already own a lot of these books and I don't have either of these on e-reader form.
    2- I don't believe I have read a Nicolas Spark book and I thought I wouldn't mind trying one of his if it were free.
    3- I love the Breaking Dawn book but I don't have it on e-reader, only hard copy, and I really want to get the books on my Nook!

    Thanks again for the great giveaway, hopefully I gave you all the info you wanted! I know I was follower 17 :)

  7. Awesome giveaway! :) My GFC name is Miri - and it's my 'real' name as well. My email adress is

    I'd love to win War Horse and The Lucky One in either mobi or PDF as I have a Kindle.

    I chose two different books. I read a lot of paranormal lately, so I'd love something more contemporary. A light romance is exactly what will take me through the upcoming month of university. That is why I picked The Lucky One. And War Horse sounds just like such a great and impressive story, that I'd really love to read it.

    Thank you so much for this giveaway! :)

    I'd love Game Of Thrones and A Clash Of Kings in epub format.

    I haven't had the chance to check out the TV series yet and I always like to read the book before seeing the show/movie. Everyone I've seen mention the show loves it so it's definitely peaked my interest.

  9. Hello
    Very cool competition.
    My GFC is IanSRutter. I think that's what you're after.

    Email is

    The two books are Game of Thrones and The Lucky One
    The screen adaptation of Game of Thrones was wonderfully created with great acting by Sean Bean and Lena Headey. The show is deep, complex and imaginative.

    The Lucky One is written by Nicholas Sparks. I love The Notebook he wrote. The film was also a very good adaptation. Love, loss, sentimentality and hope. He is a great writer that can create human feelings and emotions through words.
    So I am sure The Lucky One will be just as good.

    Thanks for the chance.
    Mobi is my choice of format.

  10. Hi! Thanks for the great giveaway!!! I'm a new follower via GFC (Danielle Smiley) and also on twitter (@knowntoread) and facebook (Danielle Smiley). You had invited me via Goodreads. I'd love to win Games of Thrones and A Clash of Kings because I absolutlely love the HBO series. I am also super excited to see the Host as a movie, but I own that one already.

    Thanks again!!!!

  11. GFC Emily @ Falling for YA

    Game of Thrones (Song of Fire and Ice)
    The Lucky One

    I choose Game of Thrones because I've heard such great things about the TV series and I have yet to watch it because I want to read the book first. And I choose The Lucky One because the previews look so cute for that movie and I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan =)

  12. I forgot to include my choice format is epub!

  13. Michelle Clough, email is the two titles i would like are the host and water for elephants. and the format is epub.

    what inspired me to pick these two are the host is because i loved this book because of the adventures and i would love to read it again, and the second one is because i haven't have a change to read it and I've really wanted to read it.

  14. GFC Follower: Jennifer Bielman

    Followed you on twitter: @JenniferBielman

    I'd like The hunger games and the girl with the dragon tattoo. I'd like Mobi and it that's not available then PDF.

    I'd like these books because the movies were awesome.

  15. GFC Follower: Alaina

    I'd like The Help and Sarah's Key. (Epub) I chose these because I have been wanting to read The Help for awhile now. I chose Sarah's Key because it seems like such a powerful book.

  16. I follow you GFC NB- laura thomas and email I would like kindle mobi if I am lucky:) I chose War Horse because I love stories about horses and it has got to be great if Spielberg directed it. I chose Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close because of the great things I have heard about the movie. Thanks for the great giveaway and I wish you success with this one!!

    I'd love The Lucky One and War Horse. I'm a sucker for Nicholas Sparks and havent read this book yet, and I just watched War Horse and loved it! I'm excited to see how the mobie compares to the book. Thank you for the giveaway.

    I'm not sure what version I need, but I have a Kindle. Thanks again!

  18. Midu Hadi
    I'd like We Bought a Zoo and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, please.

  19. I would love to win "The Host" and "The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo" both in mobi (kindle) format.

    I follow through GFC and Networked blogs as MomBlogger

    What inspired me to pick them: I've heard of both books, but have not had a chance to read them. I'd love to read them before the movies come to the theater!

    main blog:

  20. What a cool giveaway! I'd love to win all the books, haha. I actually didn't know that they were making The Host into a movie.

    I would love to win Game of Thrones and The Hobbit, both in the ePub format. I haven't read The Hobbit since middle school and would love to read it again before the movie. And I've heard that Game of Thrones is amazing, but I'm worried that if I don't read the books first I'll be confused watching the TV show.

    Thank you so much! :)

    I'd love to read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Hungers Games. Why? Everyone loves these books and I feel simply like an alien because I haven't read them.
