Blog shut down until November, BUT a Twitter Party, July 11, 7pm CST #Ensconced to join!

I'm so sad, but you guys may have noticed the blog posts decreasing recently. That's because after the current giveaways finish, I'm closing down until November so I can concentrate on studying for my Pediatric Boards. I'll be back with a vengeance then though, so I hope you'll all stick around for when I get back.

But in happier news-- I'm hosting an awesome (I hope it's awesome!) Twitter party on July 11th, 7pm CST. Most of the prizes will be US only (books I have in my possession), but INT winners can win gift cards and swag!

Dark Triumph (His Fair Assassin, #2) Siege and Storm (The Grisha, #2)Pushing the Limits (Pushing the Limits, #1)Everneath (Everneath, #1)Everbound (Everneath, #2)

Prizes (US only) include:
1. Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers, hardcover copy
3. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry, paperback

Of Poseidon (Of Poseidon, #1)Of Triton (Of Poseidon, #2)

Grand prize of special game that Fiona is hosting: Hardcover and signed copies of both Of Poseidon and Of Triton and signed swag!

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)Bonus prize: IF WE TREND-- If I Stay by Gayle Forman, paperback, to the most interesting comment of the night, decided by Fiona and me! :-)

As book winners are selected randomly, I'll direct you to this blog post as you can pick your prize out of the five listed above. The last two will be selected by us personally!

I would also love feedback at the end of the night about the party of what you liked or suggestions for next time, because my hope is to come back from hiatus with... ANOTHER PARTY! :-)

It's been an amazing year-- thanks for taking this crazy ride with me!


  1. Best of luck with your boards!! I am sure you will do fabulous. :)

  2. Good luck. Thanks for the giveaway! Readers are leaders!

  3. We will definitely miss you around here but I wish you all the best on your Boards! That's awesome!
    And I will definitely be around Thursday night! Epic giveaway all GREAT books. It's exciting.

  4. Good luck on your boards, how exciting! I can understand having to shut down as I just completed my MLIS and have not been active for my last year.

    What is the difference between CT and PT, would that be 5 or 6? Just want to make sure I get there at the right time.

  5. Thank you for the Twitter Partayy!!.. Hehe.. I would love to attend.. All the best for your tests. But it's sad you will be gone until Nov. Pretty long time :(. I will be gone for a month. But by Nov I will be already back. See you soon. You know I love your posts, Christina :)

  6. Best of luck to you with your boards!

  7. I'll miss your posts. I might not comment every day but I'm always reading your posts! You know I love your blog, so I'm sad that you won't be around. But I totally understand you needing the time to study! Good luck!

  8. Good luck, Christina! We'll be waiting for you in November :)

  9. Good studies, Christina! I'll miss your posts but I can understand you need to focus now.
    See you at the party, and then again in November ;-)

  10. Good luck! :D

    And one tiny question: can I be entered to win even though I don't have a Twitter account? Like just randomly toss my name in there? Because you've got some amazing books I'd love to win. ;)

  11. Definitely focus on your boards. We'll be here when you get back. I'm not on Twitter yet so can't attend your awesome party.

  12. This sounds like so much fun. I'm "old." How does one participate in a Twitter party?

  13. Ohmigod I can't wait! I can't wait to try the game, though I probably won't win for the most interesting comment. We're gonna get trending tonight! Even if I have to spam the hashtag to make it happen! Can it be time already? :)
