  2. Christina Kit. Mar 5 2012 at 5:41 am #

    I’m most excited about Perception (I LOVED Clarity) and A Temptation of Angels.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:26 pm #

      I am OBSESSED with the cover for A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS….I haven’t read Zink’s other books, but I’m probably gonna pick up this one. 🙂

  3. Sooz Mar 5 2012 at 6:41 am #

  4. Julie Mar 5 2012 at 6:48 am #

    Happy B-Day Sarah!!! I hope you have a beautiful day. <3 Of the list above, I think I will check out KATANA, since I'm partial to Urban Fantasy. 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:27 pm #

      Thanks, Julie!!! And doesn’t KATANA look great? I’ve been dying to read it since I heard about the deal in PM!

  5. Beatrix9 Mar 5 2012 at 6:52 am #

    I’m really excited for Wanderlove! I love the cover and the title! 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:28 pm #

      I looove that cover, too!!!

      And you’re welcome! <3

  6. Cassie Mar 5 2012 at 6:54 am #

    EE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope it’s awesome. 😀

    And I’m looking forward to A Breathe of Eyre, Starters, and Perception. Froi would probably be on the list, but I’ve got to read Finnikin first (it’s on my Kindle, just WAITING to be read. lol)

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:29 pm #

      Thank you!!

      You MUSTTTTT read FINNIKIN! Oh, it’s so, so good. And i can’t wait for A BREATH OF EYRE, STARTERS, and PERCEPTION, too! I thought CLARITY was a great read–i can’t wait to pick up the sequel! 🙂

  7. kate c-l Mar 5 2012 at 7:36 am #

    happy birthday! i’m really excited about several titles coming out this month, but froi of the exiles and spell bound top my list.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:32 pm #

      Thanks, Kate!!!! <3 <3 WOOT for another FINNIKIN fan!!!!

  8. Kayla B. Mar 5 2012 at 8:33 am #

    Happy birthday, Sarah! I hope your day is wonderful. 😀
    I’m really excited about Croak – it sounds amazing! Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:34 pm #

      Thank you so much!!! And doesn’t CROAK look fantastic?! So. Excited.

  9. katherine S Mar 5 2012 at 8:37 am #


    I’m excited to read Starters and Perception.

  10. Carl Mar 5 2012 at 8:45 am #

    I think Perception is the one that catches my eye right now. Kim Harrington is a favorite. Happy Birthday!

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:35 pm #

      I <3 Kim so much! Can't wait to read PERCEPTION, too!

  11. Meredith Anderson Mar 5 2012 at 8:53 am #

    Um Um Um Um OMG!!!!

    I had NO IDEA Froi was coming out this month!!! Not to mention the last of the Hex Hall books? And the next Goddess book!?!?!? And so many other incredible titles on top of those? *swoon* I don’t know if I’m going to be allowed into a book store at all this month. Fingers crossed I can direct someone to this page before my birthday ;p Speaking of, Happy Birthday to you! You and Sooz are both pulling Hobbit birthdays trying to give US stuff. And may I say it is VERY appreciated! Have a great day! 😀


    P.S. The Last Unicorn is AMAZING. It's taking me forever to read it because of other life crap, but every second I have to delve into it is WONDERFUL. I <3 Schmendrick. 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:38 pm #

      I knowwww, right?!!?

      AND YAY for TLU!!! 🙂

      (And thanks!)

  12. Erin Bowman Mar 5 2012 at 8:55 am #


    I’m going to spend most of March digging myself out of a massive to-read pile. That being said, I really need to read Marchetta’s fantasy novels. Finnikin has been on my list for ages and I’ve heard nothing but amazing things. I’m sure I’ll be anxious for Froi. 😀

  13. Kelly Mills Mar 5 2012 at 9:02 am #


    I think I am most excited for Wanderlove.

  14. Teresa Mar 5 2012 at 9:56 am #

    I think Breath of Eyre and Starters look really intriguing!

  15. Dani Nguyen Mar 5 2012 at 10:28 am #

    Happy birthday!!!

    I’m most excited to read Froi of the Exiles. Finnikin of the Rock is one of my all time faves.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:42 pm #

      Me toooooo!!!!

      And thank you!!!

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Mar 5 2012 at 10:52 pm #

      YES! Dani, you are now officially one of my favourite people ever (next to Sarah, of course). FROI ALL THE WAY!

  16. Katelyn Larson Mar 5 2012 at 10:32 am #

    I’m particularly excited for KATANA because I love all things even vaguely Japanese and I’d never heard of CROAK, but it definitely sounds interesting. I still haven’t read FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK (my dad promised to exchange a book I got for Christmas that are already owned for it, but has so far failed entirely), but I’m sure that as soon as I do, I’ll be dying to read FROI OF THE EXILES.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:46 pm #

      I am suuuuper-excited for KATANA and CROAK. And then FROI…Oh, man. I’m just gonna clear my schedule that day and READ. 🙂

    • Vanessa Di Gregorio Mar 5 2012 at 10:53 pm #

      Katelyn – I will love you forever if you read FINNIKIN. And FROI. And then gush about both of them with me.

  17. Crystal Schubert Mar 5 2012 at 10:39 am #

    Happy birthday!! 🙂 I am super-excited to read WANDERLOVE this month. I love travel stories. CROAK looks pretty interesting, too–reminds me of that show Dead Like Me, which I loved.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:47 pm #

      Thank you!!!!

      And I’m really excited for WANDERLOVE, too!

  18. Vivien Mar 5 2012 at 10:53 am #

    I’m absolutely LOVED Wanderlove….gorgeous. I need to get my hands on an actual copy. My e-arc isn’t good enough! Plus, the Savage Grace…can’t wait 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:47 pm #

      Oooh! Yay! I’m so glad to hear that WANDERLOVE was as good as it looks! 🙂

  19. Lori M Lee Mar 5 2012 at 10:56 am #

    I’m super excited for Starters and Katana! Woo~

  20. Adriana Marachlian Mar 5 2012 at 11:39 am #


    I hadn’t even heard of most of these releases! *ignorant* But I did read HEX HALL and DEMONGLASS, so I’ll be picking up SPELLBOUND–especially after the horrible cliff-hanger in which Book 2 ended D:

    And now I shall look at the other ones, too! 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:48 pm #

      Hehe, thanks, Adriana!!!!

      And yesss! I am DYING to read SPELL BOUND and know how everything turns out!!!!!

  21. Krispy Mar 5 2012 at 11:54 am #

    Happy birthday!!! I had no idea Spellbound was coming out in March, but I’ve been pining for it since I read Demonglass! So that’s probably my most anticipated March release! 😀

    Also, I just had to say THE LAST UNICORN is one of my favorite books ever! <3

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:48 pm #

      Me too! I’d somehow lost track of when it would release…so excited for SPELL BOUND, though!!!

      And YAY for TLU fans!!! *fistbump*

  22. Michelle V. Mar 5 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    Happy birthday!!!

    I’m torn between two books, The Temptation of Angels and Froi of the Exiles. Both have been getting a lot of positive buzz, and I can’t wait to read them both!

  23. tim Mar 5 2012 at 1:20 pm #

    Just to add a bit of geekiness: Mass Effect 3 is also coming out march. Huzzah!

  24. Jasmine Stairs Mar 5 2012 at 1:38 pm #

    I thought it was Pretty Crooked– which I’ve been looking forward to for months, but I’d forgotten that SpellBound comes out in March! And it’s the CULMINATION of a series! I’m probably most excited about that one.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 2:49 pm #

      Me too!!!! I have no idea how I forgot that it was coming out in March!!! Agh, cannot wait!!!!

  25. Teri C Mar 5 2012 at 3:01 pm #

    I cannot wait for Patricia Briggs’ Fair Game to come out this March and then The Savage Grace by Bree Despain is one my my YA titles I am dying to read.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:56 pm #

      You know, I’ve never read any Patricia Briggs novels…If you had to recommend one, which would it be?

  26. Kaya H Mar 5 2012 at 3:03 pm #

    Happy Birthday! May your reads be many.

    I cannot wait for The Savage Grace myself, and The Grave Robber’s Apprentice look fabulous. This month is an epic for great releases coming out.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:57 pm #

      Thank you!!! 🙂 And I know, right? So many awesome books coming out…agh, my poor wallet!

  27. Lexie B. Mar 5 2012 at 3:32 pm #

    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! -hands cake- I hope your day is fantastic. 😀

    As for the one I’m most excited for . . . probably Wanderlove. I’ve heard marvelous things about that one, and just the sound of it makes me ridiculously excited.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:57 pm #

      Hehe, thank you!!!!!!

      And yesss–I want to read WANDERLOVE right NOW.

  28. Rika Ashton Mar 5 2012 at 5:29 pm #

    Happy Birthday!!!

    I’m looking forward to GOBLIN SECRETS and THE GRAVE ROBBER’S APPRENTICE, since I currently want fantasy and magic without teen angst.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:58 pm #

      Rika, I’m kinda feeling that way, too! Both those books look so fabulous!

      And thank you!!!

  29. Janet Mar 5 2012 at 8:08 pm #

    Happy birthday! 😀 Of all the March releases, I think I’ll definitely check out Katana since the Chinese character on the cover is intriguing.

  30. Angelica Mar 5 2012 at 8:38 pm #

    Happy Birthday Sarah! And I want to read Katana, A Breath of Eyre and Goddess Interupted.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:58 pm #

      Thank you sooo much, Angelica!!!! <3 GODDESS INTERRUPTED is absolutely FANTASTIC. You'll love it!

  31. Tiffany M. Mar 5 2012 at 8:39 pm #

    I am most excited for Michelle Zink’s A Temptation of Angels!! How could anyone not be excited for that book:) Then I also am looking forward to Starters and Goddess Interrupted.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 10:59 pm #


      And GI is really, really great! You’ll love it!!

  32. Lucy Mar 5 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    Seeing Cinderella… more my type of read

  33. Vanessa Di Gregorio Mar 5 2012 at 10:50 pm #

    I said it earlier, but it just wouldn’t be right if I didn’t say it here too: HAPPY BIRTHDAY SARAH! You are awesome, and gorgeous, and smart, and wicked good at writing (seriously, though – give me some of that). Hope you had a FANTASTIC DAY! <3 <3 <3

    Also - OMG FROI OF THE EXILES!!!!!!!!!!! I need that book NOW! Now now now! *breathes into paper bag*

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 5 2012 at 11:00 pm #

      Awwww, thank you so, so much, V!!!!

      And LOL! The paper-bag-breathing is totallllly how I feel about FROI. Is it weird that I’m scared to read it? FINNIKIN shattered me in so many ways–I’m not sure I can even HANDLE reading FROI.

      • Vanessa Di Gregorio Mar 6 2012 at 12:04 pm #

        I feel the exact same way! I’m trying to stay calm, because I know I’ll be a huge mess while reading FROI. And he’s such a damaged character already – so I’m expecting heart strings to be tugged on right from the get go!

  34. Lauren M. Mar 5 2012 at 11:15 pm #

    Happy birthday, Sarah!!!

    I am beyond excited for STARTERS… I think I watched the teaser trailer about 50 times! Speaking of trailers, I just saw the CROAK trailer for the first time today, and goshhhh that looks great too! I guess book marketing works on me!

    Of course, the MG lover in me is so excited for three March MG releases!! Hooray for middle grade!

    Uh oh… I feel as though my wallet is in danger of losing weight again… 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 6 2012 at 5:20 pm #

      Thanks, Lauren!!!

      And lol…my wallet feels awfully light these days, too! Too many amazing books out there right now!

  35. Jenelle R. Mar 6 2012 at 4:08 am #


    And I’m really for Spellcaster’s release. I really loved Spellbound and I want more!

  36. Amie Mar 6 2012 at 6:12 am #

    Happy birthday! There’s so much here I want to read! I can’t wait for THE GRAVE ROBBER’S APPRENTICE, and I will admit it’s totally because I adore the cover and the title… shallow, me?

    I’m also psyched for SLIDE, which I think has an amazing concept, and WANDERLOVE, which I’ve had on pre-order for months, because I’m an inveterate backpacker myself.

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 6 2012 at 5:23 pm #

      lol, I totally want to read TGRA for the SAME reasons, so we can be shallow TOGETHER! 🙂

      And WANDERLOVE…I don’t usually read contemp, but this book just has something wonderful-sounding about it.

  37. Sarah S Mar 6 2012 at 8:45 am #

    Happy Birthday! I love to read about traveling, so I’m super excited about WANDERLOVE, and SEEING CINDERELLA sounds so cute! As for FROI OF THE EXILES, I have a confession…. I loved FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK, but Froi was not one of my favorite characters. BUT, I am hoping that he’ll grow on me in this new book. And I so hope that we see more of Finnikin in this story!

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 6 2012 at 5:24 pm #

      Sarah, I feel TOTALLY the same way. Froi was probably my LEAST favorite character, so I am super-interested to see how Melina tells his story. And I reallllly hope that we get to see some Finnikin at least, because dear GOD, I love him so much. So, so much.

  38. elena Mar 6 2012 at 10:52 am #

    Happy birthday! I’m super excited for Spellbound, NEXT WEEK! 😀

  39. A.J. Mar 6 2012 at 6:06 pm #

    Wow, awesome giveaway! And you’re awesome for loving Finnikin of the Rock. 🙂 Froi of the Exiles is just as epic and amazing as Finnikin of the Rock; loved it so much and need the next book now! <3

    Honestly, even though I've already read it, Froi is still the book I'm most excited for in March. I'm such a Melina Marchetta fangirl. 😀

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 7 2012 at 5:09 pm #

      Ahhh, YAYYY! I am so, so glad to hear that FROI is as good as FINNIKIN!!! Eeeeeeeee!!!!!!

  40. Alexa V Mar 6 2012 at 10:20 pm #


    I’m probably most excited for Temptation of Angels- I love Angels and Demons and heroines that can kick major butt and just *drooooool*

  41. Samantha R. Mar 6 2012 at 11:03 pm #

    I cannot wait to read Froi of the Exiles.

  42. Brandi Ziegler Mar 6 2012 at 11:55 pm #

    Ahhh I LOVE FINNIKIN OF THE ROCK!!! I’d love a copy. And I’m definitely excited about FROI OF THE EXILES – Melina Marchetta rocks! Happy belated birthday, Sarah! You rock too! 🙂

    • Sarah J. Maas Mar 7 2012 at 5:10 pm #

      WOOT! Yay for MM fans!!! FINNKIN was soooooo good, right? *sighhh* that book just KILLED me.

      And thanks for the birthday wishes, Brandi!!!

  43. Jaime Lester Mar 7 2012 at 1:34 am #

    Happy Birthday! Thanks so much for the birthday giveaway! I am most looking forward to Goddess Interrupted, A Temptation of Angels, Forgiven (Jana Oliver), Spellcaster…. Oh, heck, every one of them. Thats just a decision that I can’t make! Thanks again!

  44. Ashley Maker Mar 7 2012 at 1:53 pm #

    These March releases look amazing!! I’m definitely marking some of these down on the “To Read” list 🙂

    • Ashley Maker Mar 7 2012 at 2:14 pm #

      Oops! Forgot to say that I’m most excited about A Breath of Eyre 🙂

      • Sarah J. Maas Mar 7 2012 at 5:13 pm #

        It looks soooo good, right? It’s been getting some great reviews, too! Agh, so exciteddd.

  45. Gwen Tolios Mar 7 2012 at 5:20 pm #

    Happy Birthday! It’s so nice to find another Last Unicorn fan. I adore that book. And probably will enjoy lots of the books on the list this month.

    • Gwen Tolios Mar 7 2012 at 5:22 pm #

      Forgot to say I’m most interested in Temptations of Angels. I’m in a historical mood.

  46. Ashley H Mar 11 2012 at 8:10 pm #

    THE SAVAGE GRACE by Bree Despain (YA Paranormal)
