Wednesday Words: 100 Posts and Counting...And a Giveaway!

Well readers, here it is! My 100th post here on The Fuma Files. If someone had told me a year ago that I'd have my own book blog, making YouTube videos about books, going to author events, and getting to meet so many other people who are just as into books as I am outside of library school, I'm not sure if I would believe them.

What started out as a fleeting idea in October has been a tremendous amount of fun and pride to me. I've learned so much, especially about the world of YA. I've gotten to meet fantastic authors and becoming a part of the book blogger community has been a joy. And of course, there's you, dear readers. While I don't have that many subscribers (only 17 at the time I'm writing this post), your comments and feedback have been outstanding and I hope you stay with me.

And now that part that I'm sure all of you are waiting for, my first ever GIVEAWAY! First off I want to mention that this wouldn't even be possible without Laci from Blog-O-Rama/LovePassionBooks - she generously offered up two of the three books you can choose from.

How to enter (open to US residents only): Leave a comment below telling me which of the following books you can't wait to have join your personal library and why. Your options are:

You can only pick one, so choose wisely - if you win, the book you picked is the one you'll get! I shall announce the winner (sorry, only one this time!) during next week's edition of Wednesday Words. Make sure you leave a way for me to get in touch with you in your comment (Twitter handle, spelled out email address, etc.) so I can notify you if you win. The winner will have 48 hours to respond otherwise I'll pick someone else.

Pretty easy, right? So let the fun begin!

So thank you all again for helping The Fuma Files reach a milestone today. Comments welcome, and, as always, happy reading!



  1. Hooray!! Congrats on 100 posts! I just got there myself! I can't follow on GFC since I'm on Wordpress, but I'm following via RSS feed :)
    Ooh I'm dying to read Masque of the Red Death! I've heard so many good things about it. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and I look forward to what comes after 100 posts :)

    1. *Gasp* I spelled Red as Read - LOL. I guess reading is always on my mind :D

  3. Congrats on 100 posts!!!! I would love to win Masque of the Red Death I recently read this and loved it!!!!

  4. Yay on 100 posts!! I loved Vera Dietz. And I also loved Masque of the Red Death (Bethany is one of the nicest writers I know!). So, if I win, I would like Ravenwood. (Though, I feel bad winning for some reason, because I just wanted to say congrats to you. Hopefully another book blogger wins so he or she can spread the review love :) ).

  5. Congrats on 100 posts! Blogging is such a commitment. I'm always impressed with the amount of time & effort people put into it.

    I would love to win Masque of the Red Death. Mostly because POE! I have a small obsession with all Poe related things. Thanks for the giveaway!


  6. Congrats on 100 posts :) I love reading your blog :)

    I would love to win Masque of the Red Death because everyone has been saying just great things about it :)
    thebookcellarx @ is my email

  7. To mix it up I'll pick Vera, because one, I already have a signed Masque, and two, i've heard such great things about Vera but have yet to read it, and AS King has never been to Seattle. so when am I gonna get the chance to get a signed copy? haha

    Also, i shall now follow you. :)
