In My Mailbox- Week of June 14 + Retrospective

So I did a vlog this week. Hope you all enjoy! Also, I now realize that you cannot see any of the clutter I mention at the beginning, lol. But believe me, it was a HUGE mess. More books than I know what to do with!!

Books Shown:
I Now Pronounce You Someone Else by Erin McCahan
Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Virals by Kathy Reichs
Forbidden Sea by Sheila A. Nielsen
The Healing Spell by Kimberley Griffiths Little
Heart to Heart by Lurlene McDaniel
Dust City by Robert Paul Weston
This Time Together: Laughter and Reflections by Carol Burnett
Sapphique by Catherine Fisher (That's the one I forgot!!)

This has nothing to do with my mailbox or my blog (aside from the fact that I'm gay and love LGBT lit), but I absolutely loved this post by a gay teen blogger and wanted to share it with you all. Alexa from Not Enough Bookshelves put a link to it on her blog and that's where I originally came across it. It's a great post and I'm glad Alexa posted the link.

I also happened upon another new blog with a wonderful post on it. It's about a guy reading romance and it's really similar to stuff I had to do with GLBT novels when I started reading them (and still kinda do).


Monday- Kicking off Fresh New Voice of YA for the month of June was my review of Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala, out in stores June 22!

Tuesday- I posted an excerpt vlog featuring Vania reading a few pages from Sea by Heidi R Kling.

Wednesday- I interviewed Holly Cupala and ran a contest (it's over now) for 2-chapter samplers and swag!

Thursday- I posted a review of Sea by Heidi R. Kling, which is out in stores now.

Friday- I put up an excerpt vlog where Holly Cupala reads the first couple pages from her book Tell Me A Secret.

Saturday- Ending out the festivities is an interview with Heidi R. Kling, author of Sea.

Next week is my three year blogoversary celebration! Be sure to check back twice a day (12AM and 12PM, both EST) for guest blogs and interviews with author and blogger friends of mine, as well as contests with each post, including some wonderful ARCs!


  1. great books! I hate flimsy paperbacks too. I like to try and keep the spine uncreased and I hate when its hard to do that.

  2. I'm going to be honest and say that I'm a little jealous of The Replacement and Paranolmacy. I can't wait to hear what you think!

  3. Looks like a great week: I didn't know McDaniel had a new book. Happy Reading! Check out my IMMB if you want here

  4. Awesome books! I thought the Forbidden Sea was really good! Enjoy

  5. It was a great article wasn't it, it made me so cross though.

    You got some great books, I've heard so much buzz about Paranormalcy and you have The Mockingbirds!!!! Jealous! That one looks amazing.

    Happy 3rd Year Anniversary
