Running Home by Julie Hutchings

Incendiary by Amy Bartol (or an IOU from me for Iniquity, your choice)

I’m super competitive. And I have to say… I’m not sure anyone will be able to get all 9 right. 😉

Let us begin…

1) I kept running my hands through her hair, hoping the motion could reach her in her sleep and would soothe some of her troubles. I knew she liked it when I played with her hair. It seemed like such an insignificant thing, but it was all I had at the moment.

2) What if something happens to him? Then it will happen to me, too. We are linked, ___________ and me. I feel like I need to protect him, if for no other reason than self-preservation.”

3) Our eyes met, and then he looked over my shoulder. “Get Down.” I didn’t need to be told twice. Like a pro, I hit the floor.

4) I looked down at my bracelet, the wide gold band that had adorned my arm practically since birth. It held a charm tight against the skin on the inside of my wrist, where it continually leached power straight into my bloodstream.

5)I glanced up at him, appreciative and amazed.  Those feelings were immediately subdued when I heard his English accent shout over the rumble.

“Maybe it was reacting to your attitude.”

Appalled at his nerve, I felt my jaw hit the inside of my helmet as it fell open. Before I could even draw a breath, he spoke again. “Looks like my work here is done. Good night and be safe.”

6) He crossed the room with another crack and flash until he was breathing the same air as Roman. Low and cruel, he said, “She’s mine.”

7) “This is hardly the time to worry about your international street creds.”

8) “Those little noises you make– I especially like that one,” he says. He kisses the round edge of my shoulder. His teeth graze my skin, and I inhale a small gasp. “I like that one, too,” he growls.

9) — “And now at last I am free, and I can finally tell you, without fear of danger to you, all that I feel in my heart. You are not the last dream of my soul. You are the first dream, the only dream I ever was unable to stop myself from dreaming.”

Good luck! You have 3 days!

  1. Omg so many more books to read!! Thank you Gabi for all the new choices I’m sure I’m gonna love them!! And let me say way to go with #teamReed!! 🙂

  2. So it’s late and I’m really tired so I basically sucked at answering lol
    1. No idea
    2. No idea
    3. Half-Blood
    4. Madly
    5. Fallen
    6. No idea
    7. No Idea
    8. No idea
    9. Clockwork Princess
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

  3. Here’s what I got so far: I haven’t read a lot of these books and swear I’ve read quote #1 but can’t remember where it’s from for the life of me…

    1.?
    2. Indebted
    3. Half-blood
    4. ?
    5. Fallen
    6. ?
    7. ?
    8. Incendiary
    9. ?

  4. 1. Origin
    2. Indebted
    3. Halfblood
    4. Madly
    5. Fallen
    6. Hush hush (I think..maybe not)
    7. City of Glass…maybe? I know I have read this dang-it!
    8. Incendiary
    9, Clockwork Princess, for sure 😉

  5. OR, did Will say #9 at the end of Clcokwork Prince…remember when he was declaring himself…crap. Now I will have to re-read that before it drives me crazy..

    • Don’t go digging through the books, I’ve been there– drives you nuts until you have an answer. 🙂

      #9 — Clockwork Princess, Will

      The library part at the end of book #2 is what you might be thinking of. I cried like a baby.

  6. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who cried like a baby at the end of Clockwork Prince. I LOVED LOVED LOVED Clockwork Princess. William used to reign as my top Book Boyfriend until I met Reed. Poor Will. Also- I just remembered I forgot to mention my shock that Sebastian was not on our Villain list. WTF?

    1. I’ve read this before but cant place it.
    2. Evie- Indebted
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.
    7.Again I have read this and I’m drawing a place- It sounds like a Simon thing (or maybe a Cooper thing) to say
    8. Reed- Incendiary
    9. Will Clockwork Princess

    • OMFG!! YOU’RE RIGHT!! Oh, I hate him! Maybe more than anyone else on that villain list!

      You know, I KNEW someone was missing! And yes, even now… even though its been howlong? since I read Clockwork Prince, I tear up thinking about his face when he walked in the library. Then that world-shattering blow.

      • I hate him too. Every time someone talks about him redeeming himself I want to throat punch them. There is some types of evil that can’t be saved- Sebastian is one of them. I have more hope for Brennus and really cant stand him.

      • And I know- Poor Will. But he took things like champ and was being WAY better of a man then I would have been. I would have crushed Jem’s heart.

  7. You should read Unearthly by Cynthia Hand and/or Anew by Chelsea Fine. I love almost all of the books you love and recommend, but I also throughly enjoy this two novels. I hope you like them!
