Summary Sunday

So this is a new meme I'm looking to start. Basically, its a way to wrap up the happenings on my blog as well as other YA blogs during the past week. If you would like me to add something from your blog to next week's Summary Sunday, e-mail me!!

I posted four blogs including my very first In My Mailbox which was started by The Story Siren. One of the posts was a link to the limited time offer of Ranger's Apprentice: The Ruins of Gorlan by John Flanagan as a free eBook. I also posted Reviews of Peeps by Scott Westerfeld and Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolarz.

Also on Monday, The Story Siren posted a review of Evermore by Alyson Noel, a book I am dying to read! The Page Flipper also held a two book giveaway which I believe is still going on!
My favorite highlight of Monday was the review of The Rules of Won by Stefan Petrucha on Presenting Lenore. Lenore my absolute favorite YA blogger!

On Tuesday I posted three blogs. The first was a review of Marked by Kristin Cast + P.C. Cast. My second post was just a recap of my day which was to say the least... crazy! My final blog of the day on Tuesday was some exciting news about the upcoming novel Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Along with my blogs on Tuesday were others of note. Lenore posted an EXTREMELY helpful new blogger FAQ that I advise everybody who reads this to check out! Brook Reviews also posted a helpful blog with a list of Tuesday's releases!

The 28th was a big day for me as it was the opening of my 1 week anniversary giveaway of Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson! Make sure you enter before February 15th! the 28th was also my very first Waiting on Wednesday post!

Also on Wednesday, several bloggers posted the books they are waiting on. Some of my favorites were: Reviewer X's, Pop Culture Junkie's, and The Ravenous Reader.

The post of note this Wednesday was most definitely The Story Siren's Why I Read YA. I know exactly what you mean Kristi! I think there are a bunch of people out there who can relate to her post.

On Thursday I had finals, so I only managed to post one review which was of Betrayed by
Kristin Cast + P.C. Cast.

Also on Thursday Presenting Lenore had a Guest Blog from the Author Jessica Burkhart.

On Friday I didn't have much time to blog because my boyfriend came to town, YAY! I did manage to post a review for Chosen by Kristin Cast + P.C. Cast.

Also on Friday WORD for Teens had her Final Friday with author Megan McCafferty. Friday was also the Debut of the Read Carpet Podcast. I highly recommend you check it out!

Saturday I was presented with a larger amount of time so I had two posts. I posted by review for Untamed by Kristin Cast + P.C. Cast. I also posted a review for Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom which I HIGHLY recommend!

Also on Saturday Brooke Reviews a list of this coming week's YA releases. Harmony Book Reviews also announced her final giveaway for the month: Willow by Julia Hoban.
Today this has been my only post (so far). I just got home from snowboarding so I'm a little behind schedule.

Also today Adele from Persnickity Snark got an amazing amount of great books in her mailbox! Be sure to check it out so you can be jealous like I was!

Overall this was a great week and I can't believe its already February!!! Time is definitely flying by!
