December Month in Review / January Preview

With the holidays, December was just as busy as ever. Busier, even, since my sister had a baby girl, making me an aunt! Due to that, I wound up helping my mom a lot more with holiday preparations, etc., for our big Christmas Eve Family Get-Together. I often came home and passed out after dinner, so I didn't get as much blogging and reading in as I would have liked...and participated in more tours than normal to guarantee content! Maybe you noticed!! 
(Let me tell you...December also made me realize how much reading I normally get done on my lunch breaks when we aren't overstaffed and chatting together on break, lol!)

December also brought us more awesome posts with Kat's Korner! I know we skipped her last post on December 27th... Kat and I have been working on a 2013 wrap-up and it wasn't ready then, and it was almost ready this past Friday. It will be up and posted tomorrow Tuesday (Since I apparently have a top post tour stop planned for tomorrow, oops!), so look for a special Bunny and Kat Feature! (The first of many hopefully successful collaborations between the two of us gals with real-life animal nicknames, lol!)

January is BIG.

1) Starting NEXT WEEK, from January 12th through February 1st, I'll be co-hosting the Incarnate Read-A-Thon with Alexa from Alexa Loves BooksCheck out this post to find out more about the Incarnate Read-A-Thon. We've been planning it with series author Jodi Meadows and have support from HarperCollins/Epic Reads!!! There will be prizes, live chats, and more. 

2) Check back within the next week for a super-special announcement about February!
I'll give you a hint...
Last year around this time, I had A Week of Little Red, and the year before, I had A Week of (Cinder)ella. What do you think I'm putting together this year...? ^_^ 
As soon as I finish my banner, you'll find out...
But you should probably book your calendars to be stopping back here February 2nd-9th. Just saying... ^.~

  1. Can't wait to read Under the Never Sky! I still have yet to read my copy of Scorched.

    1. Ah, you saw my post before I could edit and link you! lol!
      Yeah, I was going to post the SCORCHED treat in December, as it was intended to be, but wanted to review it the same day...and Kat and I decided to try out a co-review (for that AND CROWN OF MIDNIGHT, if it works out! LOL!)

      Can't wait for our read-a-thon! Did you start MADMAN??
