i'm back!!

hey everybody! okay, i am officially back from vacation now (and in one piece, no serious injuries!), and i have a few announcements:

first off, welcome and thank you to all my old and new followers! you guys are awesome. seriously. you make blogging worthwhile and meaningful.

second, don't forget to check out my big end-of-summer giveaway if you haven't already! you could win a pre-ordered copy of Mockingjay, Paranormalcy, Matched, Beautiful Darkness OR another fantastic book as well as one of two awesome box sets!

also, i've finally decided on my blogging schedule for the fall. this is going to be a very busy semester for me--it's my first full-time college semester at a university, and i'm also getting a PUPPY!! (yes i am crazy, clearly college just wasn't enough work).

anyway, here's the plan: i will have a "what i've been reading" post on wednesdays, a goal-setting post on fridays (which i will do in conjunction with NaNoWriMo when November rolls around), and an "in my mailbox" post over the weekend if i get any new books!

of course, i'll probably still throw in the odd post if i have something i really want to blog about.

sound good??

lastly, if your appetite for contests has still not been satisfied after entering my giveaway (clickclickclick if you haven't already), check out my sidebar for some more great links!

SO, what happened to YOU while i was away?? any exciting news?


  1. Welcome back! I hope you had a great time!

    That sounds like a great schedule. And yay, good luck with your first semester at uni. This will be my last year, and I'll miss it so much when I"m done.

  2. Welcome back! Sounds like a super productive vacation coming back with an impressive game plan. That sounds like a hefty aggressive load (1st semester is always the shakiest) so good luck.

  3. Sounds like a fantastic schedule!! Good luck with your first semester!

    I'm so excited about the giveaway! I'm hoping to get lucky!!!!!! :)

  4. A puppy? Good grief. XD I have a 3 or 4 year old German shepherd but she's still got the puppy energy in her. I can't imagine what house training a dog would be like. Good luck with that. BTW: Squirt bottles with just tap water in them are great, harmless ways to discipline a dog. Just FYI. :)

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo! :D I did it last year (my first year) and I can't wait to try again this year.

    Oh jeez. I'm feeling the heavy semester stuff. I've got a PACKED year, too. 2 AP classes, 2 honors classes, 2 language classes and the leftover: Lit & Film. Can't you see how excited I am? *constipated-looking smile*

    Hasta luego, chica! :D

    aspiring x--thanks, i'm looking forward to it! hopefully i'll still have time for blogging...
