I have been terrible with this blog. It's true, it's out there, I'm not hiding it. Truthfully, this was originally started as a fun way for my best friend and I to spend the time, as well as challenge ourselves to read more. Because, obviously we'd read more in order to post about it on the blog, right?
Well, I read more, but my best friend...does not. Jacey has been M.I.A for over a year now, which is also why this blog doesn't get updated as often as it once did! I, myself, don't have the time to maintain it by posting about every book I read (I read about 10-15 a month), which is why it's so slow going. Sorry about this! I know I've said it before, but I wish I could post more often here, I'm just very busy with other things, like my main blog for my books, my instagram, and keeping up with both my editors/publishers. But I still want to keep you guys informed, and I still want this to be fun, even if I don't always have the time to post weekly. I am going to try to be a bit better, but honestly, I don't even always post a review for every book I read. Some of them I just leave a rating for on Goodreads, and that's that. I know what you're all thinking, we've heard this before about not posting here very often...
BUT that's why I've been looking for someone to help cohost this blog with me! So, I'll put it out there again, if anyone is interested please let me know!!!! Okay, well, onto the news!
I posted a few days ago about the HUGE giveaway that one of my publishers, The Polyethnic Publishing, is doing! It's a chance to win FOUR paperback books that have been published by them! FOUR! One of them will be an ARC copy of Ryan and Julie, an upcoming teen romance novel that's based on true events! This is an exclusive, one time offer, and will also come with bookmarks, and signed bookplates from all of the authors!!! Sounds great, right?! It is! So, what are you waiting for? Enter! The giveaway is over at the end of the month, so you better hurry! There's also a free entry for everyone, so you don't have to worry about taking the time to leave a comment or following anyone if you don't want to! I'm going to leave the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post to make it easier!
Again, this is a great way to win some free paperback books!!! Who doesn't love free books, especially when they're tangible and not ebooks? Am I right?! I am.
NEXT: The second book in my Underworld Saga is coming out this month!!! The book will be released sometime towards the end (there's no official date yet) BUT you can get your copy before then simply by ordering The Polyethnic VIP Book Box! If you buy the box, you also get a paperback copy of the first book, Unhinged! That means TWO paperback books when you get this box, as well as all the other bookish items that come with it! Some of these include bookmarks, author letter, chocolate, etc. They usually also come with jewelry, so don't miss out on this! The other amazing part about these boxes is that the books come with EXCLUSIVE covers! You can only get these versions of the covers by ordering this box. That's it. Personally, I love the exclusive ones so much, especially the one with Hadrian on it! And if you really want, you can order this box to get those, and then buy the original covered versions later on! Win-win.
These boxes are only available for another week, and I've been told there are only a handful of them left, so if you want one, hurry on over! Here's the link to make it easier:
If you're wondering what the covers look like, both the exclusive and the reg., I did a reveal over on my author blog, here:
For those of you who are interested in following my reviews/ratings (again, most of which do not make it over to this blog) then feel free to follow me on Goodreads.com! I always post updates there, ALWAYS. I also really like using the reading progress tools, so I'll post constantly about where I'm at in a book and how I'm feeling about it so far. Currently, the book I'm reading is Wintersong. Not what I expected (and I read almost the entire thing in one sitting, just to be sure) but still enjoyable once I put those expectations aside. I'm a huge fan of Labyrinth, so it was hard, but doable.
Another way to keep up with what I'm reading, or what's on my TBR list at least, is by following me on Instagram. My handle there is @TempestChani. That's also my handle on Twitter, but much like this blog, it doesn't get a lot of attention.
That should be about it...Questions and comments are welcome, ESPECAILLY if you're interested in becoming a co-blogger with me! Don't forget to enter the giveaway below!
I'm hoping to have a few author interviews and giveaways coming soon, so keep checking back! :)
