I'd pick Touch of Power! I really love Maria V. Snyders books, so obviously I'd love to read that one as well.
I already own Delirium (still on my TBR stacks, shame on me) and Incubus (thanks again *wink*) which I haven't read yet either (I really need to speed up a bit ... too many books, too little time).

Pen to Paper said...

Touch of Power is definitely in my top 5, Birgit! I really REALLY loved it!
Incubus is another possible for the top 5, although haven't quite decided :P
These obviously aren't all my favourites from the year, but they are a select few :D You shall see my favourites in all their glory on New Year's Eve :)

Hope you have time for both Incubus and Delirium soon - they are completely worth the time! xxx

Vicky said...

Thanks for the giveaway Dani! And as for what I'd pick, I'd definitely go with Room!!! I'd love to read that one! I went to the local bookshop with my mum the other day and we saw the Hungarian edition - I haven't seen the English version yet, though :( So I'll keep my fingers crossed, haha - although I don't seem to have any luck with giveaways lately. xxx

Sarahbotbonkers said...

I'd love to win Touch of Power by Cynthia Hand :) Thanks for this giveaway!

Tricia-wa said...

Ooh, Delirium! Thats one of m favorite books from this year! Thanks for this chance to win a copy of it!

Pen to Paper said...

Awww Vicky, don't worry - I went through a stage of entering loads of giveaways and not winning any - and then I won 4 really close to one another. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer that I finished a couple of days ago was one of my prizes, so it's been really recent! Definitely keep at it, enter enough and you're sure to win one soon! :) xxx

Lisaa said...

Thanks for the giveaway!! You're awesome :) I already own the awesomeness that is Delirium so I'd love a Touch of Power it looks really interesting :)

I would choose Delirium. I've read some pretty good things about it. I've not read the others.

I entered in the rafflecopter form as Evangeline.

Maria said...

Either Delirium: Because I LOVED it but don't have my own copy or Touch of Power: because I love books by Maria V, Snyder.

Wanda (GoodChoiceReading) said...

I would pick "Room" because I hear great stories about it.

Precious said...

I'd choose Touch of Power. I read her book, Inside Out and since then I've been a fan of hers. I could also go with Delirium - I loved Before I Fall but I haven't read her dystopian novel yet! I haven't read the other books.

Avon Bernabe said...

I would like to win Touch of Power by Maria Snyder! Why? Because i'm reading her Poison Study and I am loving it! And Touch of Power has good ratings! :)

I would want to win Touch of Power. I love this genre and series! I've read Water for Elephants back when the book first came out and loved it.

latanya said...

Water for Elephants

Lecea said...

I would want to read Touch of Power since it has been on my TBR list from the time I heard about it. I finished and loved Snyder's Study series, so I have high expectations for this one! She is truly a fantastic writer :)

I've read Delirium (which I enjoyed) and Water For Elephants(so much better than the movie). I would probably have to choose Touch of Power.

Tiffany Drew said...

I would choose Incubus :) I read and loved Delirium, read and hated Water for Elephants and was pretty disappointed in Room unfortunately. I had high hopes for the last two but I just didn't get into them. I really wanted to love Room :( Thank you for the giveaway, I hope you had an amazing holiday!

Mickey @ imabookshark said...

I might pick Incubus because I haven't read that one. I've read most of the others. Room is so hard to read because it's a very messed up, difficult topic, but I really respect it. Delirium and Water for Elephants are great too! Nice picks!

SarahS. said...

Thanks for the giveaway! Great choices but if I would pick Incubus if I won, it sounds like a good book. I haven't read any of the others yet.

I'd love to win&read Delirium because there're soo many recommendations and good critics about this book, and it's getting really popular so I'm curious what it could give me:)
I've not read any of the other books..it takes too much time to translate them (unneccessary for me :)) or bring them in my country? -.-' what a shame:P

The only one of those books I've read is Touch of Power, and I absolutely loved it! I am dying to read book 2. :) I'd really love to win Delirium, simply because I have heard an insane amount of praise for it. I feel like I am totally missing out!

Gwen Ee said...

I have never read any of them but I think water for elephant would be great for me! :D

I have never read any book in your list sadly, but I've heard about Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen and have been really curious about the book, so if I win, I would love to ask for that one.

Kulsuma said...

I would love to read Room because it sounds fascinating.

Ellie said...

I think I would probably choose INCUBUS if I won. I already have Room, Delirium and Water for Elephants but naturally, I haven't read any of them yet. I'm hopeless for buying new books then not reading them for ages!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Brenda Demko said...

If I win, I'd probably pick delirium. Or maybe I'd pick Incubus. I've heard good things about both of them, have been wanting to read them but haven't yet. I love the Mercy Thompson series (Moon Called). I have it already, along with all the others in that series. I'd have picked Touch of Power, but I recently won it and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Cayce said...

I've only read Moon Called from this list, but I'd like to pick Delirium, because of the fantastic GR reviews I've read :)
Thanks for the giveaway. Happy New Year!

nfmgirl said...

I'd choose Delirium. I read Room. I liked it, but not as much as I had hoped. I have Water for Elephants, but haven't read it yet. Thanks for the giveaway!

lacrima said...

I haven't read any of the books you've listed. I'd choose Delirium, because I see it on lots of lists, so I figure it should really be good :)

BlackWolf said...

I haven't read any of the books you've listed. I'd pick Touch of Power! I really love Maria V. Snyders books

Lisa Richards/alterlisa said...

i'd pick Touch of Power, ALSO! I really love Maria V. Snyders books and this is one of the few I don't have.

Georgia Summers said...

I would probably pick Room, since I've heard so many good things about it. I've already read Delirium and Water For Elephants, and they were both great reads :)

Aleksandra said...

I've already read (and own) Water for Elephants! I've also read Touch of Power from NetGalley, so I might choose that one 'cause I enjoyed it a lot :) or I might choose one of the other books, maybe Delirium. Thanks for the giveaway! Happy New Year!

Darlene said...

I'd love to win Touch of Power or Incubus.

I listened to Room on audiobook. It was very good.

IdentitySeeker said...

Thanks for the giveaway:) I've read Water for Elephants and loved it! I have Delirium, but haven't read it as yet:( It's been on lots of Best of 2011 lists so far, though.

I would choose either Room by Emma Donohue because I've heard high praise for it, or Touch of Power because I've read lots of great review and have yet to read Ms. Snyder's books or Incubus because it's got a beautiful cover and I've heard it's good:)

Sarah

Adriana C said...

I would love to win Delirium!
thanks for the giveawaY!

Mare/TommyGirl said...

I read both Room and Delirium and enjoyed them both. I haven't read Water for Elephants but I saw the movie just for Robert Pattison (overcoming my great fear of circuses and such for him). I think I would want to win Incubus.

Happy new year

Jolene and Family said...

I haven't read any of these books, though I'm dying to get my hands on Water For Elephants. I've heard the book was amazing and I'm a stickler for reading a book before I watch the movie :)

mbreakfield said...

I'd pick Incubus, because it sounds intriguing. I haven't read any of the books. I did see the movie Like Water for Elephants and enjoyed it.
