I hope you all are having a FANTASTIC Friday. Where I live the weather is finally turning warm after the long, gloomy days of winter, which is always a good thing, right? :)
But I digress...
Anyhow, I have a few winners to announce and a few bookish news updates to talk about, so without a further ado...
The winner of Suzanne Selfors' Mad Love and Coffeehouse Angel is Tiffany!

Trip to Curacao from The House of Six Doors
If you're an avid reader of my blog, you'll know I reviewed The House of Six Doors earlier this month. In the book, the majority of the scenes take place in musty, stunning Curacao, and because of this the author and publisher are teaming up to bring readers a contest! The prize- a trip to Curacao, and there's even some great secondary prizes as well!
To enter, buy the book and follow the directions here.
A Book You must add to your Wish List:
Sometimes It Happens by Lauren Barnholdt
Lastly, I just finished Lauren Barnholdt's Sometimes It Happens, which will be released July 12, 2011! It's been a while since I've read a book by Barnholdt, and Sometimes It Happens is making me regret that deeply. Amazing, realistically told, and full of heart-stopping moments, this is truly going to be the book of the summer, in my opinion! My review won't be up until July, but until then, pre-order the book if you love contemporary YA or Barnholdt. I promise you won't regret it! :)
And that's all for today! Check back tomorrow for an interview with one of favorite new debut authors! Who is it, you may ask? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. :D
