Giveaway: Signed Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor

30 November, 2012 Giveaways 103 comments

Earlier this month I sent Cuddlebuggery’s special correspondent, my mom, on a mission to attend the Miami Book Festival. The idea was for her to meet one of my favorite authors so I could live vicariously through her. She, being the incredible supportive mom that she is, went and got Laini Taylor to sign books for me! I was so happy she agreed and a bit bummed that Laini wasn’t coming to a city near me. But while my mom was there, I got to talk with Laini on the phone for an awesome 5 seconds. And I totally admit to a bit of fangirl action afterwards. Who wouldn’t? Thanks a bunch, mom and Laini!

I love her pink hair!


Originally, I planned to give away both signed copies of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and Days of Blood and Starlight, but these books now have a such cool story behind them and sentimental value. So, I’ve decided to keep the signed copy Daughter of Smoke and Bone (since it is one of my all-time favs) and Kat is kindly offering up her copy. Only Days of Blood and Starlight is signed.

    Unfortunately I have not read these books yet… but I’m dying it… so, thanks for the giveaway xD I’ve read and heard so many good things about this series xD

  2. cynicalsapphire

    Bahaha, I do not blame you for not giving away both of them. I’m greedy that way ALL the time. 🙂

  3. rabbitsfortea

    Firstly, I’m insanely jealous of all of you guys who live in the states/canada/anywhere near laini taylor really. Because she will probably never (not in the near future at least) come to Singapore, which makes me really sad because I absolutely adore her in all her awesome pink hair glory.
    I honestly have never ever won any of such giveaways, nor do I have any luck in these but I would very likely give away my firstborn for a signed copy of her books! So after I submit this comment, I’m going to hide in my cave, set up my little Karou/Akiva/Brimstone shrine and pray that I actually win this 😛
    & a big thank you to you guys for even giving away one signed copy! 
    If it were me, I think I’ll hug my signed copies to sleep.

    I have not read this series yet, but I love the covers and will be checking them out.  Thx for the giveaway.

    I have not read the series also, but I have plans to buy it, i’m still just earning for it, I know the first book will be always there waiting for me at the bookstore to grab it.

  6. Joie

    Haha totally don’t blame you for not wanting to give away your signed copy!  X)
    I’ve read part of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and the writing is just AMAZING.
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! 🙂

    Awesome giveaway!! I really liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I can’t wait to read Days of Blood and Starlight!

  25. Alicia

    I’ve read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and the best word I can think of for it is “intense”.  Normally I am not a fan of stories without happy endings but this story was so engrossing!  I loved it :).

  26. Carolyn

    yayyayayayay! I would love to have these on my shelf – and also get the guts to bleach my very brown hair and dye it a obscenely bright colour!

  27. judyree

    I have not checked out this series before.  What a great introduction to a new author/series.  Thanks for a great giveaway!!

  28. Kirsten

    I haven’t got a chance to yet, because I’ve been too busy. December seems like a good time to start in though!

  29. adreamindream

    I haven’t read either of these books yet, even though Daughter of Smoke and Bone has been patiently sitting on my bookshelf for quite some time now. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  30. Reading Wolf

    I have a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone sitting on my shelf, glaring at me daily, asking why I haven’t read it yet. I’m too scare to open it and begin reading because I know it will be over way too soon. This is a great giveaway and thank you.

  31. Karina A

    I haven’t started reading the series yet but I have a copy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I just want that when I start the series, I should also have the second book. I heard it’s a great series so thanks for the chance of winning a copy of the second book! Thanks also for making it international! 🙂

  32. hikarinotenshi93

    I haven’t read this yet, but it looks awesome!
    And you have a really cool mom~ I wish authors would do tours in Asia…

  33. Gellie

    I loved Daughter!!! And I’ve been restraining myself from buying Days because I have books on my shelf left unread huhuhu Thank you for the giveaway!

  34. SinMotion

    It’s so great you guys have an opportunity to give this wonderful book away. I was really bummed Laini will not be visiting any city near me in DC while she’s on tour. The president lives here! Should all authors and concerts come through here? Any way, thanks for hosting this great opportunity!

  35. loco_inge

    Thank you so much for the giveaway 😀 I’m so curious about this book, they say it’s awesome!

  36. Juanita

    That’s so cool that your mom went to the signing for you! I have Days of Blood and Starlight checked out from the library right now, along with like 25 other books, so hopefully I’ll have a chance to get to it soon.

  37. karakarina

    I’ve read the first book and absolutely adored it! Can’t wait to read book#2. I love Lani’s writing style and her awesome pink hair! 🙂

  42. WanderlustBooks

    I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone right when it came out! Loved it, and the year wait has been horrible. Currently reading Days of Blood and Starlight, and I’m most definitely not disappointed!

  43. ValeriaAndreaBS

    Ow, I ask my mom to get books for me, too. Yes, YES; I loved Daughter of Smoke & Bone. I was very surprised! I was only mildly interested on the blurb & my only push was Prague, but it was AWESOME.

  44. JeepinJaime

    I have read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and I loved it. I just reread it and it was just as good the second time around. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  45. Olive

    ahhhh, I can’t even think straight, this is the greatest giveaway EVER. You guys rock 🙂

  46. weicho92

    I did! I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone less than a month ago and I fell in love with it. I’m like “Gimme the second book already!”

  47. Ina M

    Oh, how odd! I could have sworn I’d posted here already! Anyway, thanks muchly for organising this lovely giveaway and adding another couple of books to my to-read list – hand on, why am I thanking you for that? I had too many books on it as it was! 😛 Those two beauties sound too awesome not to add them on, though! I really hope I can win, seeing as I’m too skint to buy them, not to mention the UK covers aren’t half as good :-/

  48. Ashley D

    I read DoSaB nearly a year ago and loved it, so yeah, I definitely have had a chance to check out the series. 😀 I also read Laini Taylor’s short story in the Foretold Anthology and I absolutely loved that too. I haven’t had a chance to read DoBaS yet but I’m really looking forward to it! I’ve only heard good things.

  49. Mona6014

    I LOVED Daughter of Smoke and Bone. And if it weren’t for this blog, I would have never found it. I thank Cuddlebuggery with all my heart! <3

  50. Renae M

    Ah, yay! I think Laini Taylor is going to have a shrine built for her somewhere on my bookshelves. I really liked both of the books in this series, but Blood & Starlight was definitely better, for me.

  51. yoursinfallibly

    I actually have not had the opportunity to check out this series yet, but I’ve heard AMAZING things about it and I really can’t wait to finally get started and read it. Thank you so much for this giveaway!
