Poll: Best Book of 2012 (with giveaway)


The VBC team is hard at work on our annual best of lists, but like last year we want to include the reader favorite, too. (Last year, you picked Shadowfever.)

While we’ll announce the best books list in time for you to leverage it for shopping purposes—or just pass the link to your significant other and say “buy me this”—we need your input for the reader’s choice.

And I’ll even bribe you into participating by offering three VBC readers their choice of any book we’ve reviewed. (This is open internationally, but the Book Depository must ship to your location.)

Here’s how it works. To nominate books for the VBC Reader’s Choice Best Book of 2012, leave a comment on this post with that book. The book must have been published for the first time in 2012. Do not forget this part.

To enter the contest portion, you’ll need to fill out the Rafflecopter form below.

Nomination round and contest close on Monday, Nov. 19.

    The Hunt. Thanks for the giveaway.

    Got to be Stacia Kane, and I’d give it to Sacrificial Magic by a whisker over Chasing Magic.

    There are so many books mentioned here that I haven’t read yet because I can’t get them here in New Zealand (like Iced, grrrr!). So winning the giveaway would be fabulous.! Thanks for making it international!

    Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews.

  4. Erin says:

    Magic Without Mercy by Devon Monk (I haven’t gotten to Magic for a Price yet, but I’m sure it will be there), OR Endgame by Ann Aguirre, OR I’m about 3/4 through ICED and I’m thinking it’s going to be a 5-star book too.
