So, shouty capitals aside, I'm sososososo glad to be back reading, reviewing, emailing uber awesome authors bout my emotional feedbacks about books I've read, and just blogging and talking to you guys again! This doesn't mean I'll not be busy though, cause there's still SATs to take, commonapp applications to fill in (all those essays *sobs*), UCAS applications, and Singapore university applications! Well, I'm just hoping at least 1 of the schools I apply to accepts me.. Cause I'm aspiring to be an architect but I'm not an art student, so I don't have the required portfolio and suddenly all my options are just disappearing. Help, anybody??
But on to the fun stuff, I'm so excited to be back that I am in the midst of planning a celebration of sorts in mid-December, where I'll be inviting a whole line-up of CRAZY AMAZING authors to the blog for fun interviews, short stories, excerpts and yeap, giveaways!! Haha, look forward to it. :))
I will be changing some rules and policies, like my reviewing policy cause I realise I'm a very lazy and stubborn mood reader, so if my brain and heart juices don't want YA, they will not read YA. Any YA book I read will be a DNF for me. That, or I'll take months to get back to an author. I've did that before and I know it's really terrible of me, so I'm going to ban myself from accepting review copies unless I'm prepared to start reading it immediately. Or if it's the sequel to a favorite series.
Sooo, yeah, on to the giveaway!
I've missed my baby's first and second blogoversary cause of exams, so today, to thank y'all good readers for sticking with me for so long even though this blog's been silent as At Grave's End (yes, I've read allllll about Cat and Bones till Destined for an Early Grave just before my exams! Gonna wait for Up From The Grave to release to read This Side of the Grave. But yes, I love Bones too!!), I'm gonna be giving away 1 book from my reading pile below and its accompanying swag.
- Indulge by Megan Duncan (Warm Delicacy #2) by Megan Duncan (signed)
- Switched (Trylle #1) by Amanda Hocking
- Torrent (River of Time #3) by Lisa Tawn Bergren
- Pink Smog by Francesca Lia Block (ARC)
- Broods of Fenrir by Coral Moore
Cause I'm feelin' all gay and happy, all entry options will give you 5 entry points. Well, except the freebie one cause this is a celebration for loyal readers. :) Haha, so fill in the form below and you're good to go! Giveaway is international and closes Dec 7, 2013.
