Weekly Update, Holly Schindler, ABC Challenge, Winners!

I know, it’s Saturday, not Thursday, but I still thought I would update you on the goings ons.
Firstly, I was invited by Andye at Reading Teen to join Parental Book Reviews as a writer and I was happy to accept! The only change in format is that at the bottom I will post a Parental Book Reviews segment, which you do not need to read to get my thoughts on the book. You will be able to descern sexual content, language, violence and any ‘other’ aspect I think a reader should know. I cannot promise these segments will be spoiler free, and have made sure you know when to stop reading. 

Secondly, Holly Schindler, the author of A Blue So Dark and the upcoming novel, Playing Hurt has published a blurb from my review of her debut novel on her Website, click Here to check it out! It is such a great honor to be among reviewers such as Kristi, The Story Siren, Cass from Words On Paper, Princess Bookie and James of BookChic. Holly, you rock'n'roll my Superstar! Holly will be stopping here on her Playing Hurt tour! Hooray!
Thirdly, I am participating in the Bloggiesta. Why? Because I put this kind of effort in daily. I figure there should be some glory in it, right? ;) You know I kid- I love my after-hours job.
