Sorry for My Absence + Blog News

Hey everyone, it's been a little too long since I've blogged or even commented on anyone's blog...I'm very sorry :' (  I just started school again (blah!) this month and all my academic classes (British Literature, Probability and Statistics, Problems and Issues, and Speech) are this semester and keeping me pretty busy with homework. Also, I just got hired as a cashier at Wal-Mart where I work 20 hours a week, so life will be very busy with school, work, SATs practice, college apps, and more. I hope to schedule my posts on the weekends since the weekdays consist of school then work right after. I'm not going to promise constant activity until next year after swim team and when I have all my easy electives.

Oh and I am excited to announce that I now have business cards for my blog, so if anyone wants one just shoot me an email so I can send you one. Also, I will be doing an IMM this Sunday which will include my Kindle which I received a couple of weeks is soo amazing, I just love it to death! Be on lookout for a couple reviews soon and my Kindle Edition IMM this Sunday : )

Waiting on Wednesday (49) + August Celebration Giveaway Reminder!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly awaiting. This week I can't wait for Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers which is the next novel by the wonderful Summers whose books are just beyond amazing. And also wow the cover and summary are so intriguing and interesting, I can't wait to get a copy when it comes out this winter on December 21, 2010! The cover and summary below are from Goodreads.

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. He seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on… but some questions should be left unanswered.
