Winners!! Plus also, my June 2011 recap

I've got some winners to announce on this fine June day!

First of all, I apologize for not announcing the winner of Lessons From a Dead Girl. I did the whole thing...and then forgot about it. So sorry!! But a belated congrats to 


Thank you to everyone who entered and gave me book suggestions!

And the winner of my Splash Into Summer Giveaway hop, who will be receiving a signed copy of Bumped and a surprise book from BEA was...


Congrats to you! I've already emailed both of the winners and they should be receiving their prizes soon. Thanks to everyone for entering, both old and new followers!

Now, for my May in review recap, another wretched reading month for me--I only read 13 books this month!! I feel like such a slacker, especially when you consider how many books I purchased/received this month. HOWEVER, here are my highlights:
  • I read one book each for the YA Contemps Challenge (Back When You Were Easier to Love--review to come!), the 2011 Debut Author Challenge (Here Lies Bridget--review to come!), and the A-Z Challenge (H--Here Lies Bridget). NONE for the Off the Shelf Challenge, and only two so far for the year. Methinks I might fail this challenge! 
  • I had a fantastic month, author-wise! Between NJLA & BEA, I met some FANTASTIC authors and assorted famous people, including Jacqueline Woodson, Susane Colasanti, Eireann Corrigan, Barry Lyga, Christine Mandelski, Bettina Restrepo, David Lubar, Rita Williams-Garcia, Nancy Holder, Jonathan Maberry, Florence Henderson, and Mike Holmes. Plus I stalked David Levithan, Ice-T, and Julianne Moore!
  • I posted 10 reviews and three author interviews (Gae PolisnerHolly Schindler, and Jools Sinclair), and participated in two book tours (44 and Playing Hurt).
What's up for June? I have another author interview scheduled, I'm participating in another giveaway hop, I have lots of reviews scheduled,...oh, and my birthday is this coming Sunday. Not that I'm doing anything for it, blog-wise, I just wanted to throw it out there. :)

Enjoy your reading!


  1. Congrats to Kristy! And thank you sooo much Christi (hehe at the names). I received the books today and you are beyond awesome. I've got close to 12 books out from the library right now and I'm so ready to blow them all off to get reading both books you sent me. They just look so good! :D


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
