News @ CFB (2) + Sno Cone!

Around the Blogosphere
 Eleni @ La Femme Readers is celebrating her 25th birthday!  Woot!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  I feel so young in comparison.  Being a teenager sucks.  Well... not really but still.  I'm sure everyone knows the feeling.  Lolz.  And to celebrate she and Kari @ A Good Addiction have teamed up to do a fantastic Summer YA Bash Giveaway! If you think that sounds exciting just wait until you see the prizes.  *cue drooling*   There will be 6 winners all chosen by and it's international!  Yay for you Brits, Aussies, and Faux Canadians! (Beth you are going to regret the day you ever said that :P ) And the prizes are:
See?  I totally called the drooling.  XD  The prizes are not ARC's but will be finished pre-ordered copies.  As I'm sure all of you are dying to get your dirty little hands on all of these wonderful titles, just like I am, don't just sit there!  Shoo!  Go enter! 

In conclusion to the fantabulously awesome week with Missy Jane the TTBG is giving away a copy of They Call Me Death!  I'd like to thank Missy again for working with us, and making this a wonderful week!  It was a joy talking with you and being able to pick your brain.  :)  Beth @ Maybe Tomorrow?  finished off the tour and has the form to enter!  Head on over!  We're hoping to make this a regular occurrence with TTBG and we're all excited that our first tour has had such a great response!  If you haven't had a chance to read the amazing pre-quel to They Call Me Death all five installments are linked to below! 

Part 1- Amanda @ Not-Really-Southern Vamp Chic
Part 2- Steph@ Papercut Reviews 
Part5- Beth@ Maybe Tomorrow?

Andrea @ Loud Words & Sounds has a fantastic idea in the works.  Her brilliant brain child Creative Stories will  feature bloggers, artist, and authors!  All you have to do is contact Andrea if  you are interested.  It's a wonderful way to get to know some amazing people!  

Also in Andrea's neck of the woods, she still has her 100 Followers Contest going!  Remember it doesn't end until July 1st so ENTER, ENTER ENTER!  

Leilani @ Leilani Loves Books has officially kicked off her 100 Followers and Birthday Bash!  Woot!  She's currently giving away the first 3 installments of Laura Stamps' A Vampire's Kiss.  I had the pleasure of talking with Laura during Leilani's interview and she is a riot!  Her books are hot and steamy and you can't help but fall in love with the characters!  The fun is just beginning with her awesome giveaway so make sure to stop in regularly to see all the amazing prizes!  I'll be mailing my contribution to her contest The Iron King by Julie Kagawa this week.  Hopefully... I'm a horrible procrastinator I know!  I just can't force myself to actually get out of the house and mail the darn thing! 

Aly@ Fantasy4Eva has a great new meme going on titled "Put a Ribbon on It" where you get to check in on some of Aly's favorite bloggers and other updates as well.  
Aly has also started up a new blog titled "I Have a Dream."  It's tough work maintaining two different blogs so definitely stop by and take a peek because it's super adorable!  ^.^

My world
And what's happening in my neck of the woods?  Not much to say the least.  Somehow I miraculously got five days off of work IN A ROW!  I about screamed for joy when I looked at my schedule.  This is truly an anomaly in my world so I'm enjoying it while it lasts.  And yes, yes!  As the title implies there is a sno-cone involved!  It's been a bit since I last got one, and it tasted oh so good.  Once again here's the LINK if you haven't already entered! 
Sno-Cone Flavor: Sunset (pink lemonade and passion fruit)
Taste: Yummy-ful!  Who doesn't love pink lemonade?! 

Okay so I have a weakness for any character from Maria V. Snyder.  So soon, you may wonder?  Yes.  Yes, indeed.  *hangs head in shame*  I just can't help myself!  I honestly can't!  I'm reading Spy Glass right now and I'm pretty sure I have a constant stream of drool running out of my mouth.  It's just so wonderful!  And who makes it wonderful you may wonder?  Devlen.  I know, I know!  He was a bad guy!  Was, being the key word!  He's trying to atone for his past misdeeds and he is just so sweet now. The brilliant blue eyes, the rugged scare on his neck, the long black hair, and the build of a warrior.  I'm weak, what can I say?  I have a thing for bad boys.  Sorry Kade, you're sweet and amazing, but Devlen is just WAY better.  Plus he is wicked with a sword.  XD  I'm eager to find out how Spy Glass ends so I better stop babbling!  Gotta finish it!  

Melt Rating: Puddle in the hot sun (soon to be evaporated) 

And I just have to say one other thing totally irrelevant.  Janco rocks!  He is like the cutest most adorable little puppy dog who rhymes while he fights six men!  Epic!  That is all.  :)
