Extra! Extra! is my weekly post featuring any and all exciting blog news.
This weekend I'm linking up to Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer
What Happened on the Blog This Past Week?
Together with Patrick @ The Bookshelves and Eileen @ Singing and Reading in the Rain I am hosting a LAST READS OF 2012 READATHON!
You can find out more and sign up here.
I also reviewed Love and Other Perishable Items by Laura Buzo
I love literary YA, so I was a big fan of this Aussie contemporary about a fifteen year-old crushing on her college aged co-worker. I just wish that they'd kept all the original Aussie slang. Read my review of Love and Other Perishable Items here.
Want to know what YA books released this past week? Yes, there were a few. Check out this week's Hot Off the Presses for more information.
This week's Freebie Friday was a special RAK edition -- I'm giving away a whole stack of great fall and winter 2012 YA releases. Entries close Monday morning. If you want to put your name in the drawing, you can do that here.
What's On Deck in the Coming Week?
A review of Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep, and (I hope) also Splintered by A.G. Howard. Plus Hot Off the Presses on Tuesday -- yes, there ARE books releasing in the coming week!
I had my huge $50 Shopping Spree giveaway and drew my winner on Monday. Who was it?
Eli from Eli to the Nth. Check out her blog -- it's great.
If you didn't win, I'm having another great Shopping Spree giveaway in early 2013!
I also had two Freebie Friday winners last week, each of whom got to choose one of my favorite YA reads of 2012 as a prize. The winners were:
Twisty J of Twisting the Lens, who chose The Diviners by Libba Bray
Bekka of Pretty Deadly Reviews who chose The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.
Hope you are having a wonderful end of 2012. If you're busy and just popping in, I understand. If you want to leave me a link, I'll visit you back!
