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 Random.org 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 Polisner, Holly Schindler, and Jools Sinclair), and participated in two book tours (44 and Playing Hurt).
Enjoy your reading!
