Hey, everyone! I hope you are having a great New Years Eve! I'm on call :-( So I'll have to live vicariously through you all.
First of all, the book that won the poll is Cinder by Marissa Meyer! I'm really excited because this book has been getting such great reviews. Lauren Oliver (as a teaser for her upcoming interview) has said that her favorite YA book of the year was Cinder. If I enjoy it as much as all of you (which I'd be surprised if I don't), I'll see what I can do to arrange an interview and giveaway for my loyal readers!
Regardless, I'll read Raven Boys after that, the runner up.
1. Don't forget to enter the great giveaways going on (click the tab above to see current giveaways), including a few more hours for Rot and Ruin, and a few more days for Streamline and Splintered!
2. Sign up for my first contest, link is to the right side bar. You can win a chance to pick a YA author of your choice for me to interview. I will read their book (if I haven't already), and then request an interview. The winner also gets to ask the author 3 questions! You can also request an author that I've already interviewed. There's only ONE entry so far, so good odds of winning!
3. I have gotten a huge deluge of review requests recently, so I'm going to have to ask you guys to wait to request any more for the next two weeks so I can get caught up. I reopen for review requests on 1/13/13! If I happen to get caught up earlier, I'll let you all know.
4. Next interview/giveaway is of Prophecy by Ellen Oh, which is coming out soon. It's terrific, and you all should read it!
5. I just snagged an interview and giveaway with Debra Driza, who is coming out with the fantastic Mila 2.0. I'll post a review of that tomorrow. Stay posted!
If you guys ever have any suggestions of what you want to see on my blog, please let me know! Leave a comment or shoot me an email. I read them all and take all comments under serious consideration!
Happy New Year's Eve, and stay safe!
