Week in Review: The Halfway Gone Edition

Week in Review

The Halfway Gone Edition!

Splash into Summer begins tomorrow!! Are you as excited as I am?

Did you realize that today marks the halfway point?  Only six more months until 2013! (Unless, of course, the Mayans are right and we won't make it that far...)

Splash into Summer is officially under way.  We have a week under our belts and another two to go!  Here's a helpful Schedule of Events.

I've also redesigned my blog template this week and finally given myself a menu bar, which I've been coveting for a while.  I even made a bar with helpful Splash into Summer links!  Please take a look and let me know if anything looks weird on your end!  (Does anyone know the technical term for allowing page-jumping links?  I'm going to organize my reviews and want to have ABC links across the top of the page, but I'm not sure what html I'm googling for!)

Be sure to display our button to receive bonus giveaway entries during Splash and to help us promote the event! ♥ ♥ ♥

What did you get in your mailbox this week?


  1. So jealous of Cursed! I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to read it so bad! Arghhh!! Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, and I haven't read the other two books before Deity, but they sound so good!

  2. Lovely haul my darling Bonnie. I have Cursed too. Jennifer L. Armentrout is awesome. Great haul.


  3. Your mailbox looks awesome this week! As for the page-jumping links, I used this tutorial on the blog Small Review. Her tutorials are very straightforward and easy to understand. I really like the new look!
