Tracy said...

I saw this was coming and was very excited!!!

How about I give you my list in preference order and you can take it from there...or does that just sound really greedy? LOL

1. Michal by Jill Eileen Smith
2. Centurion's Wife by Bunn & Oke
3. Stepping into the Sunlight by Sharon Hinck
4. Double Minds by Terri Blackstock

How's that for outrageously selfish?! But you know..just in case I win something...and just in case someone gets to it before me I thought I'd cover my bases and make life easy for you. There, I do have some generosity when it comes to books LOL :)

Danielle said...

Ooh, exciting!!

Hmm, favourite book I've read this year? I've actually really LOVED reading a biography of EH Shepard, the man who illustrated the Winnie-the-Pooh books. It was enchanting :).

I'd be interested in:
Daisy Chain
Certain Jeopardy
The Centurion's Wife
The Gatekeepers

Thanks for always sharing fun giveaways! My book from you arrived yesterday :).

Rel said...

Well, at least Danielle answered my question!!!!! I need your favourite book for 2009, Tracy & alihsee ;-)

And yes, you receive an extra entry if you already follow me!

southeastcountrywife said...

Great, I'm already subscribed so there's one extra entry. alihsee also follows you because of me so that's two extra entries. i'm positive danielle also follows you because of me (you can double-check with her) so that's three extra entries. :D

hmmm, my favourite book for the year...i'm not sure if i've got a favourite but i'll say "breach of trust" by diann mills because that is one that i really liked and was new this year!

i would like to be entered for "Stepping Into the Sunlight" and "Against All Odds" and "Where the Heart Leads" please!

as for the book you sent me, i have a parcel pick-up card sitting here on the table that my housemate brought home tonight so i'm guessing it's your book...and now i have to wait till monday. :( :(

Alan said...

Hi Rel,

Angela ( my sister ) sent me a link to your sight ( so that would mean Angela gets a second chance - lucky thing), I won a couple of novels last year from your sight, thank you very much for your generosity, my husband and I have and are enjoying the books that you sent us.

This year I was given a book from my sister in Adelaide called 'The Island' by Victoria Hislop. At first I was not too sure about the book, then the more I read the more I could not put the book down, which is a great thing for someone who was so reluctant to read a book. I really enjoyed the book and am on the look out for the next one called 'The Return'. I would have to say that 'The Island was the best one so far for me this year.

If it would be possible I would like to be put down for the following books.

The Inheritance
Sweetwater Gap
Kiss me if you dare
Against all odds
Daisy Chain

Thank you for letting me enter. I should really subscribe. I will wonder around your site and see if I can just do that.

Have a great weekend

Rel said...

Hey Guys,

My conditions of entry for the Winter Warm Up Giveaway appear to have been a little confusing so here is my clarification...I hope!

To receive additional entries, you need to recommend a friend who is not already following or subscribed to Relz Reviewz, not one who already does! Sorry for the confusion. I have a large readership of American and other international book lovers but I would love to see more Aussies appreciating fantastic Christian fiction.

So, you will receive one entry any of the following:~

* posting a comment and telling my your favourite book
* recommending a friend (who is not currently following or subscribed) who then follows or subscribes to Relz Reviewz
* and I'm going to toss in an extra entry for those who already to follow me or subscribe to say thanks!

If you need further clarification, feel free to email me! There are lots of books to be won and some have not received an entry yet so tell your friends about Relz Reviewz so I can give all these books a home :)

I'm enjoying learning about your favourite books, too, so thanks!


Ausjenny said...

this is a hard question there are a few books I have loved this year,
Gingham Mountain by Mary Conneally,
The Red Siren by M.L. Tyndall,
But of the last few I have read I think Robin Shopes Wildcard is my favourite.

Please enter me for
The Inheritance
Where the Heart Leads

I will let my aussie friends know about the giveaway and may put a notice on my blog.
The Centurion's Wife

jaana said...

Thanks for this exciting give-away!

My favourite book I've read this year is A Lady of Secret Devotion by Tracie Peterson.

And here is a list of books I'd like to win from (in order of preference):

1. Havah
2. Michal
3. The Inheritance
4. Beloved Captive
5. The Centurion's Wife
6. A Flickering Light
7. Any one of the others


Tracy said...

See...I missed that little bit of information. That'll teach me for skim reading.

My favourite book so far this year I think might be 'Havah' by Tosca Lee. But I'm sure that's just the most recent one, actually.

alihsee said...

Woops, I didn't tell you my favourite book that I have read this year - it has to be reading Pride & Prejudice, yet again! :)

wendyb said...

Hi, thanks once again for the giveaways. As I was studying for the first half of this year I didn't read very much which is amazing for me so now that the course is completed YEH I'm back into books. I was seriously having withdrawals. One that I did manage to read and really found interesting and thought provoking was The Shack by William P Young.I highly recommend it. The only book I have read from the giveaway list is Havah so I'm happy to get any one of the others. Thanks once again Wendyb

nolene said...

When I initially read this, I thought the book that came to mind was After The Leaves Fall by Nicole Baart. But I have just finished reading The Moment Between also by Nicole Baart and I have to say that it is probably the best for me for this year. It was beautifull!

So the one's I am interested in are:
Kiss Me If You Dare

Double Minds
Sweetwater Gap
Stepping into Sunlight
Daisy Chain

Thanks for entering me

Laetitia :-) said...

OK, now that I've found the correct place to put my bid...

Favourite book read this year - "A Mile in My Flip Flops" by Melody Carlson.

Preferred books - the Robin Jones Gunn one or any of the suspense ones look appealing.

Oh, and Ausjenny sent me :-) and I'll post about this on my blog.

HeatherH said...

Hi Rel,
I've got a lot of favourites this year... Zora and Nicky by Claudia Mair Burney and Shadow of Colossus by TL Higley. However, the most recent favourite which I read just a few weeks ago was Reconstructing Natalie by Laura Jensen Walker. It was an incredibly enlightening novel about one young woman's journey into and beyond breast cancer.

My contact is heather [at] exemail [dot] com [dot] au and I have an Aussie postal address too.

I'd be interested in any of these books but particularly:
1. Wounded by Claudia Mair Burney,
2. Kiss Me If You Dare by Nicole Young, or
3. Against All Odds by Irene Hannon

Thanks again,
Heather (another one!)

Allison said...

I read Mistaken Identity earlier this year and it truly is an amazing story. The faith that these two families have simply blew me away.
I don't have any particular title that I would like to win, but do like Contemporary, Suspense and Historical!
Thanks Rel. Hope it's not too cold in Melbourne. :)

Anonymous said...
