Hoppy Easter Eggstravagana Giveaway Hop

April 6th through 12th

US only
Must at least 13 years old

I looked absolutely everywhere but couldn't find one bunny. There are plenty of plastic eggs waiting to be filled with candy but not an ear to be seen. So since I couldn't give you a cute bunny to drop little jelly beans all over I thought a troll would work as a substitute. They are green and like the earth. Sadly instead of gifting you with jelly beans they will demand to be treated like royalty and make you sleep in the dog house. So with that lovely bit of details here is the "Troll" you will be trying to take home.
Yep, none other than Switched by Amanda Hocking.

Oh, and my prediction for the next hot theme is kick butt females. More female assassins please!!!

  1. Bahahah trolls? I haven't even read a book besides Harry Potter with trolls in them. I don't know if I'd read any if they became big...

  2. The next big thing? What about mummies? Not sure about trolls.

  3. Trolls? Doubt it. Not hot enough...although that hasn't stopped zombies.

    Next big thing? Not sure, but I'm going to hope that it's badass, futuristic fairy tale retellings like A Long, Long Sleep and Cinder.

  4. Nah, don't trolls happening....unless it's something by Holly Black.

  5. I think the next big thing is mermaids, all about the water creatures!

  6. I don't think trolls will catch on - they don't seem too romantice or have various powers but strength and they can be seen as dumb?

    The next big theme could be outer space or aliens?

    Thanks,

  7. Nope, but they are great for a change of pace!

  8. I think that despite the over abundance of Vamp tales that they will remain the king!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Well, it seems that zombies are the "it" thing right now so I'm sure ogre's will be popular down the road.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think werewolves or shape shifters will be next.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm not sure. Def. something new!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think vamps and shape shifters will remain on top.

  13. I don't see trolls becoming the next big thing. I don't think they have a big enough fan base to get there, which is sad because it's something new & different! ~Rose

  14. Fallen angels are making their way up to the top, so something tells me their opposite (demons) will be making the rounds. ~Rose

  15. Trolls I don't know I don't think so. but angels an shadow hunters I think will be the nex big thing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I dont really think trolls will become the next big thing. Oddly enough, I still think that Dystopian still has a lot left in that genre before it dies out. I also feel like when the twilight craze dies down we will see a rise in more vampire books.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think the next big theme is going to be mermaids and underwater mythical beings. A couple years ago I hadn’t heard of any mermaid books and now I have seen at least 4 pop up in 2012 alone!

    ReplyDelete
  18. As awesome as trolls are, I don't think they'll be the next trend. Dystopia looks like it'll be going strong for awhile.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think the next big thing will be mermaids or Shaman/Shaman-like characters.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe not trolls but I see alot of things centered around goblins...

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would love to see more historical/fantasy/adventure YA like "Graceling" and "Grave Mercy".

    I pretty much can't stand dystopian so I can't WAIT for this obsession to be over :P

    ReplyDelete
  22. Eh... Trolls? Idk... That's a hard sell. But really, it doesn't matter to me as long as it's good.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't think trolls will really take off. They're not typically pretty or sexy and that's all that's selling right now. Although, they did manage to make zombies into paranormal romances, so who knows!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I really hope to see a surge of horror stories in YA. I don't think there's enough!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Trolls, hm? Me thinks not - not enough sex appeal. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm thinking that with the popularity of The Walking Dead that zombies will be the next big thing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't see trolls as the next big thing because I don't think there is enough of a fan base. I could possibly see Zombies though. Thanks for the lovely contest.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Maybe because it would be different than what's already out.

  29. Really can't guess.

  30. Hm I don't know if trolls will catch on...maybe if someone comes up with a really different twist on them!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Zombies and angels are both on the rise...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't think trolls will ever catch on like dystopian...

    1. I think that the next big thing will probably be angels, there are a lot of those type of books out now

      Delete
  33. Haha! Yes, interests do tend to come and go. I think trolls already are big with the Shrek films and dystopian has been around awhile too though I had not heard it called that before. What's next? Hmm- I'll go with murder mysteries. They haven't had a turn for a while. :D

    Thanks for participating in the hop and for the giveaway opportunity.

  34. I think trolls could be a next big theme, but since vamps are pretty big it might take ahile for that to calm down so that trolls can get a spot in the big time.w

    ReplyDelete
  35. And now for my psychic abilities...I'll have to say future technology being involved a lot with upcoming books.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't see trolls becoming the next big thing, but I bet Angels or Zombies might be.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I don't see Trolls being the next big thing. I've never really read about them though so who knows! I think the next big thing will be Demons (or at least I can hope!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I do not think it will be trolls, but my favorite is witches so more witch books :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I can't see trolls being a big thing in YA, but I think it would be great for Middle Graders.

  40. I think the trend is going to come back around to Faeries. I also think Zombie's are on the rise and they will be a huge thing soon! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  41. Trolls? No way, they aren't sexy enough to capture the imagination. Zombies have a better chance, thanks to Dearly Departed but I'm rooting for angels.

    ReplyDelete

    1. No way! You think Zombies have more sex appeal than Trolls? Is it possible for dead rotting brain eating corpses to have sex appeal? I don't think it is possible. I better read Dearly, Departed and see what all the fuss is about.

      Delete
  42. I think trolls could be the next big thing if authors found new and original ways to present them.

    Next big theme hmm...I agree with the others that zombies seem to be gaining a lot of interest so they may be the next big thing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm hoping that epic fantasy/high fantasy will be the next big YA thing - and hey, there are trolls in there. Sometimes. So maybe? It'd be nice.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm not sure Trolls could achieve that level of fame?... But I'd totally give props to any author who could pull it off!

  45. The next big thing? I'm thinking we're in for another round of girl power. In what form, I'm not quite sure.

  48. Mermaids, I hope at least I know that I love Tera Lynn Childs books

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think scifi could be starting to edge its way into popularity.

  51. Trolls? no not really, they are not appealing enough. As for the next big thing I have no clue maybe something like cyborgs lol since Cinder seemed to be a big hit with it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I don't think trolls will be the "next big thing". Perhaps apocalyptic or zombies. Zombies are becoming more and more popular nowadays.

  53. I don't think that trolls will ever replace the interest in vampires and werewolves.

    ReplyDelete
  54. The next big thing, I really don't know. Maybe witches, I know I enjoy books with magic.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm gonna have to say I don't think trolls are going to be the next big thing. I'm not sure what that would be, but I'm hoping for dragons or mermaids.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I was talking about this just the other day. We both thought it would be ghosts....trolls didn't enter our theories! Thanks for the chance to win!
