A few changes here and there

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas/Hannukah/Whatever you celebrate! My plans this holiday season didn't quite pan out this year but... *shrugs* life is life sometimes. I ended up having a very quiet Christmas Eve and baked sugar cookies for my mom and me to snack on. As for book-related news, I only received one book in the mail but I have been DYING to get my hands on it and lucky for me, I won it at Melanie's!

*drum roll*

An ARC of Tangled by Carolyn Mackler! I've read most of her books and I really enjoy her style of writing: she writes so simply but manages to convey wonderful imagery and feeling. I suggest you pick up her books if you haven't already familiarized yourself with her!

Now onto some news relating to my site. I am now officially a part of....

The YA Book Blog Directory which is a reference site for YA blogs. I'm on the list! (you can find me waaaaay down on that list...but I'm there!)

The YA Blogosphere, little sister to The YA Book Blog Directory. I'm featured there as well.

I am also a Bloody Affiliate over at Bloody Bookaholic's site. I feel incredibly honored since Taschima's only going to have seven affiliates; the fact that she considered (and then chose) me makes me feel so special<3

I like to think of these things as a Christmas presents from the blogging community :D


  1. Tangled does look very good! And sometimes a quiet Christmas is what is needed.

    Congrats on becoming an affiliate! That's awesome and well deserved.

  2. Sorry your plans idn't go as... planned. Hope you had a great Christmas anyway!
    Congrats on becoming an affiliate! I don't post nearly enough on my own blog to even qualify for something like. XD

  3. Aww, maybe you'll get a better New Year's? I hope it goes that way for you. :)
    Congrats on winning the book! I've never read any stuff by Carolyn Mackler though, so I'll be sure to look for a review. ;)
    And congratulations on being listed at the YA Book Blog Directory! Another congrats too, for becoming an affliate. That's great!!

  4. Yay wonderful on being on all of those sites!

    That book looks really good by the way!

  5. Awesome news, and it's awesome that you got that ARC! :D

  6. Congrats por lo de Bloody Bookaholic!!!
    Y unas navidades tranquilitas son igual de buenas que unas con mucho ruido ;)

  7. Congrats for making it to those sites.

    I hope Tangled is good!


  8. Oh, just wanted to let you know that there is going to be a 'sequel' to Saving Francesca, comes out next March in Australia and it's called The Piper's Son.
    I'm so excited about it.
