Sorry I've been MIA for most of this week, guys! I'll try to make up for it now. Well, sort of. I've been really busy, hence the lack of posts the past few days. Sorry for not bringing you any features or reviews! This will all change next week. I'll be back on my game :)

I vlogged a couple of Book Loot posts over the past couple of weeks. I'll try to get one up tonight so you have SOMETHING substantial. I guess the library one b/c it filmed first...?

Is anyone going on the DIVERSITY TOUR put together by Cindy Pon and Malinda Lo? I am and I'm *so* incredibly excited! So is Steph Su...I'm really excited to meet her! (If you're going to the Books of Wonder location, let me know. I want to meet you, too!) Plus, I *adore* Cindy Pon. You may recall that I recently interviewed her and reviewed her latest novel, FURY OF THE PHOENIX (which is awesome. You need to read both this and SILVER PHOENIX if you haven't done so already. Like...immediately!) I'm so nervous, don't be surprised if I'm cowering before this amazing woman with knocking knees and my heart in my throat! I'm also really excited to meet Malinda Lo! I really enjoyed ASH, and while I haven't read HUNTRESS yet, I'm planning to buy it at the event. I can't wait! Plus, the two are going to reveal a sneak peek at a new novel that they're CO-WRITING. *squees like mad*
