101 more reasons to love fantasy + quick giveaway!

Ryan at Wordsmithonia recently directed me to Bella of A Bibliophile's Bookshelf's project to create a list of the 101 Best Fantasy Books. You have a chance to nominate and vote on the best in fantasy, so if you have an opinion (and I know you do...even if it's just that Twilight - yes, I mentioned it - was addictive, if not good), go and share it, and vote on the very best when that time comes around. Yay!

.......

And because book giveaways are fun and happy-making (Uglies trilogy, you've changed my vocabulary!), and because book-buying supports my favorite authors and creates new fans, I'm giving away one (1) paperback copy of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, or Robin McKinley's Sunshine. The winner chooses the spoils.

To enter:
Leave a comment on this post answering the question, "What is your favorite genre?"

+1 extra entry if you enter my contest for The Only Alien on the Planet. If you've already entered, you do not need to do so again.

Please include your email address. Giveaway is open internationally. Comments will close on August 21 at 11:59pm EST, and I will notify the randomly selected winner via email.

Good luck!

Oh, nice giveaway, thanks! My absolute favourite genre is scifi. I love all subgenres of scifi, from books that aren't classified as scifi but have subtle elements to fullblown space operas. I especially love seeing it in teen books (fantasy predominates, but there are some great ones).

My favourite genre is fantasy and supernatural. I think that I'd never get bored with it... I could be ninety and still love reading stories of vampires and fairies.

+1 extra entry for entering your contest for The Only Alien on the Planet.

I have to admit that my favourite genre is women's fiction. Not the fluffy stuff, just the women's fiction that you can lose yourself in when you're having a bad day (or week!). I love fiction in general as well. Please enter me in your contest! I would love to read Gaiman's "Neverwhere"!

I've always been drawn to fantasy and mystery. I can't choose one over the other, it would be like picking between your two best friends.

I just entered your other contest for The Only Alien.

Can I say my favorite genre is YA? Seriously I love most of the books that I read so *shrugs* but if I had to pick then Faeries should be a genre and that's what I choose, anything otherworldly and fantasyish.

THANKS!

Bella's project is just so cool!

My favourite genre is fantasy. The wonder and excitement that I feel when reading fantasy cannot be recreated with anything else. It really is just magical.

I have entered your The Only Alien on the Planet contest.

I'm really getting into the classics, but I have a soft spot for YA!

I love YA fiction although I am sadly no longer a young adult. I also enjoy historical fiction and paranormal/supernatural fiction.

I've already entered your The Only Alien on the Planet contest.

I just got the Uglies trilogy so I don't have a new vocabulary yet!

Thanks for another great contest!

Favorite Genre... hmmmm hard call. I love Fantasy, I love Paranormal, I love Historical Fiction and looking at my bookcase I have a wide range of books. I think I am most likely to pick up a fantasy book and be whisked off to imaginary worlds...
