In My Mailbox + Announcement

It's been a really great week for me. First off, I have an awesome announcement: I've teamed up with Kelsey from The Book Scout to launch a site focused on blog tours- which of course differ from ARC tours in that it focuses on the book and author rather than just a series of reviews from one book mailed around. You can find the site here. Authors feel free to contact us and bloggers, you can sign up for us to know to contact you for tours. We've got several tours already started and more to be set up.

I also had the opportunity to guest blog for Suzanne Young where I talked about The Ten Hottest Boys in YA and a follow up for the Ten Hottest Girls in YA. You should definitely check them out!

Also... I hit 1000 followers on my blog which is basically astounding to me. So, seriously, thank you. In so many ways. You might also want to check back tomorrow for a contest....
And now on to what you really came for.... In My Mailbox this week!

For Review:
Special thanks to Liz Rudnik, Wendy Delsol, and Phenix & Phenix for these titles)

Beautiful World by Anastasia Hollings
Dancing On The Edge by Han Nolan
Don't Judge A Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter
If I Should Die Before I Wake by Han Nolan
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

I also got a big swag pack from Emilee at Penultimate Page as well as some Freefall swag from Mindi Scott. So clearly, that meant dropping it all over the dog. But right after I took the pic, he sit up and made a mess of the swag sea. His butt might have harmed a piece or two.
