  1. Hmm, I’d love to spend my summer vacation with Rose from VA because I’m sure we’d get up to heaps of awesome (albiet possibly dangerous) stuff. And she probably wouldn’t go anywhere without Lissa and Dimitri XD


  2. I would spend my summer with Nicko, Cal and Robin Goodfellows from Cal Leandros series by Rob Thurman. Their banter always cracks me up, and Nicko is fascinating :))

  3. I would love to spend my summer with Aislinn from the Wicked Lovely series! I just finished the first book and absolutely loved her as a character! She is such a strong character and stands up for what she believes! Plus she is the Queen of the Summer Court! 🙂

  4. I want to spend my summer with Jace from The Mortal Instruments, so sexy, so dangerous, so gentle – it does not going together but it does when we are talking about him. OMG. I am just re-reading The Mortal Instruments and I love that guy. =)

  5. I would love to spend my summer vacation with Simi of the Dark Hunter series, she would be such a blast to hang out with.


  6. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

    I would love to spend my summer with Gideon Trumbull, Duke of Roxleigh from Jenn LeBlanc’s The Rake and the Recluse: An Illustrated Novel. He seems like a fun time.And it doesn’t hurt that he’s good looking.

    +1 What character would you most want to spend your summer vacation with? – If I know I wouldn’t get in trouble by my husband (lol) I would LOVE to spend the summer with Jace from The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare…also to add that if i could, I’d at least wish him to be close to my age so I don’t feel like such a cougar LOL (25yrs).

    You guys are trully awesome for hosting this HUGE and generous giveaway!! Thank you so much for the chance to enter and win some cool prizes!!

  9. OOPs forgot to leave my answer to the question. I would love to spend the summer with Sookie Stackhouse. I have never been down south and what an interesting place Beautemps (sp?) would be to see.

  10. Hey there, thanks for the chance for extra entries. Old follower here, but I am a new follower on Twitter now and I’d appreciate it if you followed me back as well. 🙂 I’d like to spend my summer vacation with Harry Potter, since all his magical abilities would make my summer pretty awesome! I wouldn’t mind any extra owls that came around as a result either! 🙂

  11. I would love to say Jace but he’s a little bit too young, so I’m gonna go with Eric Northam, my favorite Viking vampire, from the Sookie novels! Yummmm!

  12. I can’t think of anyone I’d rather spend my summer with than Ron Weasley. I’d love to hang out with the whole clan and eat some of Molly’s delicious food for three months!

  13. What character would you most want to spend your summer vacation with?

    Oh well, this one’s easy peasy. I’d totally wanna hang with B in Paris like S did! 😉

    Also, love your blog, it’s totally cute and has a lot of personality. So, ya know…signing up to be your personal stalker! 😉

  14. I want to hang out with Johnny, the waerewolf Domn Lup in Linda Robertson’s Persephone Alcmedi series. He’s in a rock band, ruler of the werewolves and has a great personality.

  15. Good question … no vampires and werevolves, that’s for sure! Maybe just hanging out with the girls, like Katniss and Trella 😉 !

  16. What character would you most want to spend your summer vacation with?

    Hmm. This is really difficult, but I’d have to say Puck from Julie Kagawa’s “Iron Fey” series. I just love me some pranks and mischief!

    Usagi @ birth of a new witch

  17. What a great question! I think I need some girls time out (plus it is too hard to pick just one guy) so I would go with Simi from the Dark Hunter series! She would be so much fun especially if I could use her credit card too!

  18. Thanks for the fab giveaway!

    I would love to spend my summer with Ash from Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon.


  19. Most of the books I’ve read recently have been great reads but I’m not sure if I’d want to spend time with the characters personally. Perhaps the Phouka from War for the Oaks ooor Sazed from the Mistborn trilogy.

  20. I’d love to spend ALL of my summer vacations (and any other days) with Acheron (Sherrilyn Kenyon). The guy is A GOD!(literally.) 😛 LOL
