Ashley Hope Pérez said...

Of course, I'd love to get lost in A BREATH OF EYRE. I'd also love to get lost in my own WiP... so lost that I'd stay "in" it writing for days and days! Good luck with the giveaway.

Linda C. said...

I'd love to get lost in The Chronicles of Narnia. Love that book!


Lisa Shafer said...

This is the coolest swagpack ever! WANT!!!!

I'd love to live at Hogwarts, please. Put me in Prisoner of Azkaban.

I retweeted your info AND posted on my blog. Here's the blog link:

Unknown said...

Congratulations on your upcoming release! Let's see, so many choices of what book to get lost in -- I'm going to go with The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy.

Cassie said...

Gosh, that's such a difficult choice! Jane Eyre is actually my favorite book, so getting lost in that would be amazing. But, like Linda C., I too think Narnia is amazing. It's a tie between the two. lol. Thanks for the giveaway! *REALLY HOPES TO WIN* :D

Patricia E. Riley said...

Gah! I cannot wait to get my copy! And that has got to be one of the most gorgeous swag packs I've ever seen.

As for a book to get lost in... Is have to say Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones! (But ONLY if I get to BE Sophie!). Jane Eyre is also high up on that list so I can't wait to see your version of getting lost in it!

I tweeted! (@PatriciaERiley)

shortlatte said...

I'd love to get lost in Harry Potter. The writing's not my favorite, but how could you pass up the opportunity to get stuck in that magical world?

EFC Chrissy said...

I'd love to get lost in the world of Harry Potter!

Your book sounds great! What an awesome giveaway!

Shelby said...

Well, Harry Potter of course.
But also Percy Jackson, and Toads and Diamonds, and The Goose Girl, and so so so so so so many more.

Rebecca said...

I'd travel into the world of Anna and the French Kiss! I absolutely loved the setting, it was magical. This book is a favorite of mine and I'd love to snag myself an Etienne (except he'd be all mine). <3 Thanks for the AMAZING giveaway and for making it international!!




Quick Question: Can the giveaway be tweeted/facebook as many times as possible or only the once?

prerna pickett said...

I've always wanted to see Mr.Darcy fall head over heels for Elizabeth Bennett. Plus, I loved the way they dressed back in the day.

Petra said...

Not very original, but Harry Potter for sure. I've had so many HP related dreams in which I was always trying the Expecto Patronum spell, but I've never seen what my Patronus was :( I really want to know what my Patronus is! :))

And the tweet:

And congratulations!:)

Angelica R. Jackson said...

I thought of so many books I love, but had to admit that a lot of those books are set in kind of dark and scary worlds. I probably wouldn't last 5 minutes lost in them! But I'd love to get lost in Scott Westerfield's Leviathin world--so many cool creatures and machines.

Thanks for the giveaway, and I'll retweet!

Faith E. Hough said...

Ah, I wish I lived in PA so I could come to your party. I hope it's amazing!
Part of me would love to get lost in The Scarlet Pimpernel...but it's probably too dangerous. So I'll take Anne of the Island. I'd love to be at college with Anne and her friends. :)

Eve Marie Mont said...

Aw, Ashley, thank you! And I just added WHAT CAN'T WAIT to my Goodreads list--looks gripping! My kind of story.

Linda, fantastic choice! The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is one of my favorites, too.

Lisa, shorrtlatte, Chrissy, and Shelby all voted for Harry Potter! Hogwarts is the coolest. Anyone been to the theme park yet?

Ruth, I can't believe I haven't read The Scarlet Pimpernel. It seems rather a violent world to be thrust into, but maybe also romantic and dramatic. I'm game.

Cassie, yes to Jane Eyre (of course!) and Narnia. So magical!

Patricia, so many people have recommended Howl's Moving Castle that I think it's about time I read it.

Rebecca, I'm with you on the world of Anna & the French Kiss. I love Paris, and Etienne is swoony.

And Prerna, who could forget P&P??? Have you seen Lost in Austen? I think you would love it!

Thanks so much for your creative and fun responses so far!

Eve Marie Mont said...

Oh yay, new entries while I was responding to the others!

Petra, I'll add you to the Hogwarts fan club! And when you figure out your Patronus, let us know!

Angelica, you are more daring than I. Leviathan sounds like a fascinating but somewhat harsh world.

And Faith, you're the second person to choose Scarlet Pimpernel, and I haven't read it yet. I need to get on that! (And oh, Anne of the Island... yes! I have to reread that one.)

Gigi said...

I'd like to get lost in The Vampire Academy world! just for Dimitri ~sigh~

Jessica said...

I'd also like to get lost in Hogwarts. Past, present, future- all's fine with me. Ravenclaw FTW.

I retweeted here:

Eve Marie Mont said...

Gisele, I have yet to experience the hotness that is Dimitri, but I've heard so much about him. Must give Vampire Academy a try!

And Jessica, I'm Team Ravenclaw too! Thanks for commenting!

Carrie at In the Hammock Blog said...

Jennifer Jobin said...

I think I'd like to return to childhood and get lost in Anne of Green Gables. Wouldn't it be fun to be one of Anne Shirley's "kindred spirits"?

I'm really looking forward to reading A Breath of Eyre -- I love the title! Best of luck with your release!


Eve Marie Mont said...

Carrie, anything Austen-related would be fine by me. Especially if there were men like Darcy.

And Jennifer, you're the second person to pine for Green Gables. I would love to be one of Anne's friends. Thanks for the comments about the book & title!

Cayce said...

I'd love to get lost in Harry Potter or any book by Diana Wynne Jones. :)
And I love Jane Eyre, so a trip to her world sounds great, too :)
Thank you for the awesome giveaway!

Devan @ Book Strings said...

Yay! Thanks for celebrating by having a fantastic giveaway.

I'd also love to get lost in the wizarding world of Harry Potter, specifically Hogwarts. I'd want to be a professor of either Transfiguration or Charms.

Eve Marie Mont said...

Cayce and Devan, I'm adding you to the Harry Potter fan club. Isn't it amazing how much those books have entered our collective psyche?

And Devan, I'd want to be professor of the care of magical creatures!

I love getting lost in the Harry Potter books, love me some Ron and Snape! and of course, I cannot wait to read A Breath of Eyre!
Thanks for the giveaway, and I retweeted it too :)

Peggy Martinez said...

I would for sure choose either Jane Eyre or maybe Pride and Prejudice. I love the characters and the eras! :-)

Eve Marie Mont said...

Amber and Margie, the world of Harry Potter is getting crowded with all these fans!

And Beth, of course I love your answers. Jane Eyre or P&P? Yes, please! Have you seen Lost in Austen?

Peggy Martinez said...

Lost in Austen? Holy Crap! never even heard of it! I'm SO out of the loop :( I have an addiction to BBC and A&E dvd's and own ((ahem)) 3 DVD versions of Jane Eyre and about 3 Jane Eyre books...I recently found a 3rd edition hardcover of Jane Eyre but it has no publish date, it was inscribed in 1944 on the first page though. siiiigh...I had to pick it up for $4! right!?!?! :-) Jane Eyre is by far far far my favorite book. I cannot WAIT to get a hold of A Breath of Eyre! <3

I've always wanted to get lost in one of those books that take place in Italy where the main character rediscovers her joy through good food and loving. There's a memoir called "An Italian Affair" by Lauren Frazer (sp) that I have read over and over that is just as I described.

I would love to get lost in Pride and Prejudice!

I tweeted this but can't figure out how to get the URL on mobile. (@jaffobsession).

Krista said...

I love to get lost in Jane Austens Pride and Prejudice I love her everything Jane. I have read p&p so many times the binding is falling off my book! Love it!
I tweeted your post as well

Thanks Krista

Celine said...

Like Rebecca, I'd love to live in the world of Anna & the French Kiss, mainly for the reason because there is ETIENNE! I actually would love to live in worlds like Narnia or Harry Potter but I'm scared of fighting the evil queen or voldemort! :P

Thank you so much for the giveaway, Eve! Can't wait to get my hands on your book when it's out!

I'd have to go with The Invention of Hugo Cabret -- sneaking into movie theatres and exploring the train station with Hugo and Isabelle would be pretty neat. (Lets just hope the Station Inspector never caught us!)

Can't wait to read A Breath of Eyre!

Eve Marie Mont said...

Rhapsody in Books, thank you, thank you! I hope my book is fun to get lost in!

BrooklynShoeBabe, I’m with you on Italy and getting to eat, travel, and romance vicariously! Have you read Summer in Europe? Delicious! And I really enjoyed Eat, Pray, Love, especially the Italy section.

Monica and Krista, yay for two more P&P fans! And Krista, here’s to well-loved and well-used books!

Celine, I totally fell for Etienne as well. Stephanie Perkins is the master of slow burn swoon!

Lux, original answer! I just bought The Invention of Hugo Cabret for my husband, and we pored over the illustrations of a magical, thirties Paris.

Thanks, everyone, for entering! I’ll have the winner posted early Tuesday morning!

Laura Hartness said...

What an amazing swag package-- wow! Thanks for sharing!

Like others have mentioned, I'd love to get lost in either Pride and Prejudice or in Narnia.

Here's a tweet for a bonus entry too:


Giada M. said...

Pride and Prejudice! One of the few books I never get tired of reading. :)

So excited I saw this giveaway! I would love to win--I can't wait to read your book. There are so many books I would love to jump into, but if I had to pick one, I'd escape into Philip Pullman's THE GOLDEN COMPASS.

Hope your book launch is a smashing success!

Probably Infernal Devices books :D

I would like to get lost in Harry Potter and relive the magic!



Eve Marie Mont said...

Laura and Giada, you're in good company with the P&P lovers!

Kip, unique answer with The Golden Compass. I love Lyra!

Claire, thanks for entering!

Reading Mind and Von, yay for more Harry Potter love!

Christina said...

Hmm, well my first instinct was one of the Austen novels, probably Northanger Abbey. However, I really like modern conveniences, so I think that and second choice (Graceling) might be out.

So, I'll go with the safe answer of Harry Potter.

Or The Eyre Affair, so I can be in ALL of the books.

miaka_yuki70 said...

I know a few people have said this already but I will have to go with Harry Potter as well!! Such a fascinating world! Great giveaway :) miaka_yuki70@hotmail.com

Anonymous said...

At the risk of sounding cheesy, I'll have to go with Jane Eyre! It's my all time favorite.

Close seconds would be Chronicles of Narnia and Emma. :)

Laurisa White Reyes said...

Wuthering Heights - although that is a rather depressing story. Hmmm... Harry Potter - nah, too scary. I think I would love to be a Hobbit in Lord of the Rings (minus the dragons and Orcs, of course.) laurisawhitereyes at yahoo dot com

Kissed by Ink said...

I would love to get lost in any of the Harry Potter books!

I Twitted: https://twitter.com/#!/kissedbyink/status/184364417885020160

Eve Marie Mont said...

Christina, I am with you on the modern conveniences. No to anything in ancient Greece or Rome, the Middle Ages, and possibly even the Renaissance.

Miaka and Nicole, everyone seems to love the world of Harry Potter, and who can blame them? So much fun!

Lori, how could anything related to Jane Eyre be cheesy?? ;)

And Laurisa, you’re the first person to say Lord of the Rings, but I think the Shire looks so cozy and wonderful. I concur!

Book Sake said...

I'm going to have to go with The Princess Bride by William Goldman. Swoon-worthy Westley, sword fights, and true love.

Colin Smith said...

Who wouldn't want to get lost in Harry Potter's world? It would have to be either SORCERER'S STONE (pre-Voldemort's return), or right after DEATHLY HALLOWS (post-Voldemort's demise). But I wouldn't want to be a squib in Harry's world. That would be too frustrating. :)

Eve Marie Mont said...

Jessica, I had almost forgotten about The Princess Bride! Excellent choice.

Bethzaida, almost every book lover has recommended Jellicoe Road. I think it's time to get myself a copy. The synopsis doesn't do anything for me, but everyone raves about it.

And Colin, so what you're saying is you want to hang out with Harry and his chums and do magic but not risk your life to fight evil? I see where you're going with that... very wise.
