  1. Great contest, thank you!

    Lazy is for Lori, Crazy is for you, and then Hazy is for Angela? It all works except for Angela LOL.

    The book I can think of right now that I know I want is Dracula in Love!

  2. Awesome giveaway guys thanks so much!!! I have no idea where you came up with the title of the contest I’m assuming maybe from a book?
    If I were to win I would love Paranormalcy! =)

  3. I’m very excited about so many books! : ) Paranormalcy, Firelight & Scorched Trials are at the top (except for Matched, at the very top, but it’s a late Nov. release). : D

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. Yeah, my guess is still the Nat King Cole Song : “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer”

    Books I’d want to win: Return to Paradise and Torment πŸ˜€

  5. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I’m looking forward to tons of books, but Ithink I’d pick Paranormalcy or Personal Demons.

    As for the name..I’m not sure. Possibly the name of a movie or song?

  6. My guess is from the episode 1, season 3 of “Gilmore Girls”. The town is having the First Annual Stars Hollow End of Summer Madness festival and Taylor has a group repeatedly singing “the lazy hazy days of summer”.


  7. Before I even read the post about the contest I was singing the song from Gilmore Girls in my head, so I’m guessing that is where it’s from:) Shari

  8. The name is from the gilmore girls episode! Its also a song name…but i think yall were inspired by the gilmore girls!

    I would love to win Firelight!! Ive been dying to read it!

    Thanks for the contest girls

  9. Apparently, the name Lazy Crazy Hazy Summer is a reference to Gilmore Girls. Thanks to the other commenters for explaining that, I’d never got it on my own :( #Alessandrafail

    I’d like to win Extraordinary, but aldo the DUFF sounds very attractive.


  10. I thinks the Lazy, Crazy, Hazy days of summer is a book reference. No idea which book though.
    I would love to win Unraveled by Gena Showalter or Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare!
    Thanks for the contest.

  11. It’s a song. Though maybe each of you (Candace, Pure, Angel) are hazy, lazy, and crazy? :)

    I’d be interested in The Replacement.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Awesome giveaway! =) The Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer is a song, and I must admit that my first thought was of that episode of Gilmore Girls where they just keep singing it over and over and over – right after Rory comes home from Washington DC and they’re having the festival and Jess is making out with the blond. Probably more than you wanted to know =) I’m not addicted or anything.

    There are so many great books coming out! I think I would have to choose Radiance by Alyson Noel or Crave by Laura J. Burns. I’m really excited for them both!

  13. That term comes from a song, right? I would love Behemoth by Scott Westerfeld. I’m pretty sure it comes out in October. Also, Paranormalcy looks awesome! Thanks so much!

  14. LAZY- because we love to read & be LAZY!
    HAZY- because its been SO HOT!??? LOL
    CRAZY- because our kids have Driven us there!! :)

  15. Thanks for the awesome contest!
    My guess is it’s either a song or the title of an episode (not sure which show though).

    If I won I’d probably get Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler, it sounds really good.

  16. Thanks so much for the contest! If I won i’d probably get Firelight. I can’t wait for that one!

    Hmm, and as for the contest name. Could it have come from the movie 500 Days of Summer? That’s what first came into my head.

    Thanks again!

  17. if I won, what would I get? I think for me, it’s a tossup between Paranormalcy (because Kiersten White is awesome) or Grace (because Elizabeth Scott is awesome).

  18. I think the name of the contest came from the Gilmore Girls. Thanks for the contest! I’d like to win Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare πŸ˜€

  19. I would prolly get the second in the Wicked Lovely series by Melissa Marr.

    Lazy because we are lazy in the summer
    Hazy because summer is hazy
    Crazy because that is what this giveaway is crazy good!

  20. Ok i went tothe book place and looked up the one’s coming out The one that i but a little while ago was not there but there was book i want coming out so would pick Katie MacAlister book Confessions of a Vampire’s Girlfriend & Sherrilyn Kenyon book No Mercy


  21. I’m guessing the Nat King Cole song or the episode from Gilmore Girls (ep 1 season 3?).
    It’s hard to say what I’d pick if I won! Probably Paranormalcy by Kiersten White or Matched by Ally Condie, can’t wait to read either of those. :)

  22. 1. I believe it came from the episode of Girlmore Girls with the same name & that song they repeated over. And over. And over.

    2. I’d probably choose “Halo” or “Paranormalcy” (if price allows)

  23. Im guessing it came from Nat King Cole song and the book I would like would be I think is Halo by Alexandra Adornetto or Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, so many great ones coming out Thanks for the chance great giveaway!

  24. from a song by Nat King Cole, Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer πŸ˜€

    and I think I would pick Mockingjay, or Paranormalcy, or Infinite Days, or Mini Shopaholic. Hmm…

    and thank you all for this!

  25. I would go with the majority and say the Nat King Cole song and presumably you ladies have had just such a summer !

    Thanks for the giveaway and especiallt for opening it up to worldwide entries.

  26. Fantastic Giveaway!

    I guessing that Lazy stands for Lori, Hazy stands for..Angel (?) and Crazy stands for Candance, it works out except for Hazy ;P

    I am counting down..everyday..for..Clockwork Angel! Julian Game! MATCHED!!!!!

    Badass Bookie xx

  27. I think the name might have come from the actual summer days being so hazy or humid! Crazy because of all the releases that come out during the months. And Lazy being that you want to be lazy and read all the great books!

    I would want Nightshade by Andrea Cremer–since my luck stunk at trying to win an ARC :( and the Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance 2.

  28. I’m thinking…it’s because this is the hottest summer ever which makes it hazy and makes you lazy and possibly driving the moms crazy with fussy children. Just a thought.

    dorcontest at gmail dot com

  29. Maybe it’s because you think summer is a time to be Lazy, Angel thinks summer is Hazy, and Lori thinks it’s crazy?! Hmmm but it’s also a song by Nat King Cole and the name of an episode from Gilmore Girls. I still like my first guess though!
    I would love to win Paranormalcy. I would have loved to win Matched by Ally Condie as well, but that doesn’t come out until the end of November :(

  30. I am going to guess that you made up the name because it rhymes?
    The book I would pick would be Beautiful Darkness:)
    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  31. I guessed that lazy-hazy-crazy came about because it rhymes and is catchy.

    If I win I’d choose Megan Hart’s, Selfish Is The Heart.

    Thanks for this great giveaway.

  32. Nat King Cole’s song is your inspiration and I’d love to get No Mercy by Sherrilyn Kenyon out of any books but my son wants mockinjay we will have to discuss it lol

  33. I’d like to win any of the books–I haven’t read any of them!

    Lazy hazy and crazy–is that supposed to resemble the bloggers hosting the giveaway? lol!

    meredithfl at gmail dot com

  34. I think the term Hazy Lazy Crazy came from a song called “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer” by Nat King Cole.

    I’d love to win Paranormalcy or Firelight!

    aikychien at yahoo dot com

  35. Lazy, Crazy, Hazy probably refers to the Gilmore Girls or a song…. Hm… I think I’d like to win Mockingjay πŸ˜› Hahaha! Let the 12 year old girl win please! Hehe!

  36. I think you got the inspiration from the Nat King Cole song, but I think that each word relates to a book. Maybe the favorite book of each of each one of you?

    which book would I choose? That’s really hard! If it’s not too far out since it is on pre-order status, I’d get Beautiful Darkness. Or Mockingjay, Extraordinary or Paranormalcy. There are so many! Thanks for giving away anything!

  37. I know that Nat King Cole wrote a song with those words… maybe you got it from there? When I hear it, the first thing I think about it that Gilmore Girls episode, though.

    I’d love to get a copy of Mockingjay, Clockwork Angel or The Heroine’s Bookshelf: Life Lessons from Jane Austen to Laura Ingalls Wilder. Thanks for chance to win!

  40. Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer was a song sung by Nat King Cole.

    The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory and Fall of Giants by Ken Follett (but I might change my mind!)

  41. What a great giveaway, Candace! Thank you for your generosity.

    I know “Lazy Crazy Hazy Days of Summer” are Nat King Cole lyrics, awesome ones! Is this where you come up with the idea?

    It’s hards to believe summer is already winding down.

  42. “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer by Nat King Cole and it sure brings back memories for me. Mockingjay, Extraordinary,or Return to Paradise are my choices.


  43. it’s because there is no better time to devour a great book than during the Lazy, Hazy, Crazy, days of summer :)

    I’d probably pick Paranormalcy- looks fabulous!

  44. My guess is that the name came from Nat King Cole’s song!

    If I win, I’d like The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff!

    Thanks for the chance!


  45. I would love paranormalcy or nightshade.

    I think you took the letters from the books shown above and created the title.

    I just found this blog today and love the reviews! I wish I had enough money to buy all the awesome books you’ve read! If I win this contest, I’d like to receive Mockingjay, since I haven’t been able to preorder it :(. Thanx for the awesome contest!

  47. Although there is a Nat King Cole song called Lazy, Hazy, Crazy days of Summer, I’m sure you had the inspiration from that episode of Gilmore Girls! πŸ˜€ Loved that episode :-)

    I would like to win Halo by Alexandra Adornetto or Paranormalcy, or Firelight, so many graet books coming out πŸ˜€

    Thanks for the fantastic giveaway and especially for making it international! πŸ˜€

    stella.exlibris (at) gmail (dot) com

  48. Ohh, fun fun! :)

    My guess would be that “Lazy, Hazy, Crazy days of summer” comes from that Gilmore Girls episode.

    If I’m the lucky winner I would like Paranormalcy or Firelight! :)

  49. well… i think “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer” is about that.
    i mean: in summer i´m crazy and lazy at the same time and the days are hazy in the morning and night…
    that´s my opinion

  50. Thanks for the giveaway contest!

    I would love to get the chance to win Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

    And I think that you may have gotten the title “Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer” from the song with the same title by Nat King Cole.

  51. Couldn’t find a button on any of the three blogs to enter the contest so I just did comment. :)

    I think you got the term Hazy Lazy Crazy because of the weather, because at this point in the summer we get lazy, and we are crazy because it is starting to get boring doing nothing.

    I would like The Blind Contessa’s Machine by Carey Wallace

  52. You were inspired by the Nat King Cole song “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer.”

    I would choose either Halo or Mockingjay. Thanks!

  53. Corie R

    I would love The Duff or Fallout…mostly Fallout since I’ve been waiting for it forever! haha LOVE Ellen Hopkins (:

  54. I’m guessing it came from the song by Nat King Cole but I also hear it was on an episode of Gilmore Girls! :)

    I would probably pick either Clockwork Angel or The Replacement, or maybe Halo–I’m not sure. Thanks for the giveaway.

  55. Hi! I’d love to win Mockingjay or Clockwork Angel!… I expecting for them since loong time ago.
    Thanks for the giveaway and wish me luck! ^^

  56. Gilmore Girls….and I swear I didn’t read everyone else’s guesses first. Though it was nice to see my suspicions confirmed.

    So many choices for the book….it’s a tough call. Blameless? The Iron Duke? Cold Magic? Enclave? Servant of the Underworld? The Native Star?

    Definitely one of those. In the end I’d probably pick based on whichever has the best cover. So. The Iron Duke is out.

  57. I did a Google search and the first thing that came up was the Nat King Cole song…so I will go with that. This is a summer song and a contest where the book will be a summer release unless we choose a book from October then it will be a fall release.

  58. I would want Total Eclipse by Rachel Caine. This is the final book in her Weather Warden series and I’m a little sad it is ending.

  59. I’m thinking Hazy, Lazy, Crazy refers to how summer is. It goes by in a haze while we lazy about when not doing crazy things. πŸ˜€

    As far as which book I’d like, I’d have to go for Double Cross by Carolyn Crane.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  60. I guess it’s the Nat King Cole’s song!

    And the books I’d like would be, oh, gosh, I’m stuck between these 2 Paranormalcy or Firelight.

    I don’t know, maybe I wanna Paranormalcy more than Firelight.

  61. In order of descent: 1) Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins 2) Grace by Elizabeth Scott 3) Losing Faith by Denise Jaden and 4) Dangerous Neighbors by Beth Kephart

  62. So, so many to choose from!! Quite possibly Firelight or The Duff. Really looking forward to both of those.

    Thanks for the great contest!

  63. Lori’s Lazy
    Candance’s Crazy
    ……. But I can’t think why Angela would be Hazy? And people are saying it comes from a song!!!! I need to put on my thinking cap…..

    Thanks for the contest!
    Good Luck to everyone
    Read, Write, Love,

  64. Lori’s Lazy
    Candance’s Crazy
    ……. But I can’t think why Angela would be Hazy? And people are saying it comes from a song!!!! I need to put on my thinking cap…..

    Thanks for the contest!
    Good Luck to everyone
    Read, Write, Love,

  65. Awesome giveaway! Thanks =)!

    And I think the “hazy lazy crazy” thing came from Nat King Cole’s song “Those Hazy Lazy Crazy Days of Summer” ^^

  66. Also, ever since I read the title, I have had the barbershop chorus from Gilmore Girls singing it in my head, so that’s my guess of where the name came from.

  67. Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer came from the idea that the hot days of summer are simply the time to lounge around and relax and because the heat can cause people to do crazy things.

    If I win, I would like a copy of Paranormalcy.

  68. Oh, and the name…Hazy for the summer. Because heat makes every hazy, if you get what I’m saying. Crazy cuz we’re all book crazy, and lazy because we hang around and read!!

  69. I would have to say its from my favorite show Gilmore Girls as I’m rewatching the series currently and I swear I heard it in a few episodes ago.

    I would have to say the book I would love to win!!
    Clockwork angel
    The Ivy
    or maybe Paranormalcy!! lol one of those would be great!!

    Thanks again for the chance to win
