    I can’t live without peanut butter cookies :).

    Thanks again!


  21. Kirsten says:

    Would love Historical or Contemporary.

  22. Kim says:

    My favorite cookies are chocolate chip. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. Na S. says:

    I simply cannot pass up this wonderful giveaway! Thank you Carolyn. I hope you had a wonderful time at RAW. I hope one day to make it to one.

    I would like to be entered for all, especially historical or contemporary.

    P.S. I’m not sure if it matters but The Taker by Alma Katsu (which was one of my favortie reads last year) is Adult, not YA.

    And of cours, my fav cookie is soft chocolate chip. If it’s hot and the chips are melting it’s even more delicious.

  24. Melody May says:

    I would love to get the historical or paranormal. That’s really nice of you to do this give away.

    My favorite cookies are snicker doodles and a specific chocolate chip cookies that are super yummy. During the month of March I love thin mints.

  25. Cathy P says:

    I would love to win the historicals. My favorite cookie is chocolate chip.

  26. vita says:

    Picking which genre of bundled books is almost as hard as picking a favorite cookie! Normally I’m a paranormal sorta girl, but those historicals sound really good.

    As for the cookies, in general that would be warm, soft, gooey chocolate chip…or maybe yummy peanut butter…or oatmeal…or….

    Thanks, Carolyn!

  27. Judi says:

    My favorite cookie is a toss up between my mother’s recipes for sugar cookies or peanut-butter. I think using Mom’s recipes makes it special.

    And I’ll read anything.

  28. donnas says:

    I would like the paranormal or romantic suspense.
    Thanks for the chance!

    Now as to cookies. Currently my favorite is white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies. Subject to change based on mood. πŸ™‚

  29. librarypat says:

    Any of those bundles would be wonderful. I read a little bit of almost everything.
    I have lots of favorite cookies. One I haven made in a long time is an oatmeal, raisin, walnut, chocolate chip cookie. The mother of a friend in college made them and shared the recipe (in the 1960s) and they have been a family favorite. We also have a recipe for a really good chocolate bourbon ball cookie that I usually make at Christmas.

  30. Maureen says:

    My favorite cookie is chocolate chip, preferably warm from the oven. Thanks for the giveaway! I am so looking forward to your new historical.

  31. Chelsea B. says:

    Givin’ up your goodies! I wouldn’t be able to do it! But thank you πŸ˜‰
    I would LOVE the Historical pack!
    Favorite cookie: Chocolate chip. Anything with chocolate is a plus in my book.

  32. I would love to put my hat in for the historical romances….any chance one of your books would be in there? Say Not Wicked Enough? And I would absolutely kill for Not Proper Enough, LOL! I would take those two and not anything else πŸ™‚

    My favorite cookie, and it’s also the one my family raves about is my Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookie recipe. Hands down the best chocolate chip cookies….EVER!

    If you email me I’ll send it to you πŸ™‚

  33. Barbara Elness says:

    I’d love to win the paranormal or historical bundles.

    My favorite cookie is peanut butter with peanut butter chips. πŸ˜€

  34. Helena says:

    I love shortbread cookies and would love a chance to win that historical bundle. Thank you for the contest!

  35. Jillian Lark says:


    I was unable to attend Nationals this year, so I’d love to win the batch of historical books. I prefer chewy chocolate chip cookies with a side of rakes, scoundrels, and rogues.

    Thanks for having the book giveaway!


  36. Just stumbled upon your blog. Sounds like a great contest. Count me in for the YA bundle, please. Oh and peanut butter cookies are my favorite because I can almost convince myself they’re good for me πŸ˜‰

  37. Margay says:

    The historical one looks promising. (Ironically, I own all the YA ones!)

  38. Julia B. says:

    Thanks for this great contest! I would love to participate for any of the bundles, all have great books!

    I really love all kind of cookies, but maybe the chocolate chip ones, a little more than the rest. :o)

  39. infinitieh says:

    Paranormal, please and thank you!

  40. Thanks for the contest. I’d love to check out those YA titles!!

    As for the cookie question, that’s a bit delicate. You see, for the past two years I have had to exclude gluten and dairy from my diet due to medical reasons. Before this insanity I LOVED cookies. To pick just one… ohmygosh, that’s difficult. However, I would probably go with a fresh savoiardi from a local Italian bakery!
    Nowadays, I am exceedingly grateful for the good people at Aleia’s who make some delicious gluten free chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin cookies that I can grab at my grocery store (and then hide from my gluten gobbling husband who thinks they’re delicious too!!).

  41. Linda Henderson says:

    I would love to be entered to win any of them. I read just about every genre and I would be thrilled to receive any of the batches. Thank you so much for the giveaway.
