Sunshine Book Tour Author Event + Giveaway

Hey guys! I know I've hardly tended my blog and that is because I am in the middle of senior year of high school, and whoever said you get bunches more down time in your last year of high school obviously didn't have to contend with AP classes and COLLEGE stuffs. (Not just applications, but SATs, ACTs, scholarships, etc.)

However, I did want to show you guys that I haven't excluded myself from the book community and blogosphere entirely. Here are some pictures that I took (and thanks to Gaby's mom, pics of all the authors and Sarah Nicholas from the YA Rebels) at the Coral Gables stop on the The Sunshine Book Tour. Only 8 authors were able to make it but that's more than Books & Books has ever had in one sitting I believe so, of course, I was delirious!

Starting in the back left: Karen Amanda Hooper (Grasping at Eternity), Danielle Joseph (Pure Red), Sarah Nicholas (YA Rebels), Christina Diaz Gonzalez (A Thunderous Whisper), Gaby Triana (Riding the Universe).
Bottom row from the left: J.A. Souders (Renegade), Heather Burch (Guardian), Lucienne Diver (Bad Blood), Jenny Torres Sanchez (The Downside of Being Charlie).

I also recorded an hour long video if you'd like to suffer through my shaky camera-work.


As a treat for you guys I am giving away a signed copy of The Downside of Being Charlie by Jenny Torres Sanchez. 

The giveaway will only be open to U.S. residents and will end February 14th (Valentine's Day!!) at midnight EST.

Thanks for reading and watching and entering! x)

What the Spell Book and Lip Gloss Giveaway

A teenage witch juggles popularity and romance while keeping her powers a secret in this spellbinding debut.Almost-sixteen-year-old Brooklyn feels invisible, but she desperately wants to be pretty, to be popular, to be adored by a cute guy. Luckily for her, she’s a witch about to come of age—so she’s only a few spells away from making it all happen.

On her milestone birthday, Brooklyn’s conservative parents finally unbind her powers, which include the ability to magically match couples with a love spell. Brooklyn uses her special skills to get a makeover, new friends, and the attention of her crush, Asher. But the popular clique Brooklyn wants to infiltrate puts her in the same precarious position as her Salem ancestors: If she’s found out, she could be vilified—and lose Asher in the process. Can she make the most of her magic, or will she be luckless and loveless? Be careful what you witch for!

Thanks to the wonderful people at Simon & Schuster, I am able to giveaway a signed copy of What the Spell by Brittany Geragotelis and a snazzy lip gloss. Giveaway is only open to U.S. residents.
