Bad Reading Week [Chelsie]

First off, Hope asked me to mention that she's on vacation, so that's why she isn't doing a post this week. She wants everyone to know that she didn't abandon us. =D

Also, I'd like to do some shameless advertising and say that I'm holding a contest on my blog to win a signed copy of Violet in Private by Melissa Walker.

And, in other news, there's a new Teen Tuesday button on the sidebar, so if you like that one better you can copy and paste that link into your blog and replace the old one. Or, if you absolutely despise the new one, or don't like the colors, or the old one just rocks your socks, you can keep the old one, because the link will still work.

If you don't have a Teen Tuesday button on your blog somewhere, this is me nicely asking you to put one on there. =D

And one final thing, I was reading this blog over at Shooting Stars Mag, and the idea really interested me. I don't want to ramble on and get everyone confused, but I thought I'd share the link.

So, now that I've got the official business out of the way...

I have only read one book this week. And that book was Violet by Design by Melissa Walker, which was extremely good. I actually think I enjoyed it more than the first one... The first one was good, but the second really had me hooked, and now I'm excited to see what happens in Violet in Private.

I'm also still working on What the Storyteller Brings. It's a slow process, because I can't focus on it for very long. But I can honestly say that I'm putting forth an honest effort to finishing it. Slowly but surely.

Other than that, I really have nothing much to say. Last week the library recieved a whole stack of Young Adult books (that I picked out) and so I know that I'll have enough to read for oh, the next six months. With the new books at the library, the ones I have at home, and with the school library as soon as school starts again, I will never run out of choices.

Ah, so many books...

Now, gotta get back to reading. Er, I mean work...

Please check out my awesome blog, http://www.bookloverreviews.blogspot.com/, to read awesome reviews, one truly awesome interview, and to enter into my awesome contest.

Chelsie I really like the new Teen Tuesday Button, it's neat. your so lucky a librarian asked you to order books . . . I wish my librarian would do that . . . hmmmm . . . I need more books to read.

I love the banner and button!

I'm putting it on my Wordpress review site.

Also, about the marked up books from Shooting Stars Mag's blog, I like the idea a lot, and I asked Lauren what she thinks if I put post its on my book instead of actually writing in it (because I'm just too obsessed over my books).

Also, I'm glad you think Violet by Design is better... I need to read that one next! :)
