I have not read a single YA book in over four months. I admit I haven't read much at all, but that is about to change my friends. Recently, a family friend told me about her daughter's "book obsession" and how she would finish a book in three days and feel bummed about not have anything else to read. She had difficulty finding books she liked at the library and buying new books was out of the question. I told her about my *ahem* small collection of books and told her that her daughter was welcome to them anytime. She asked for a book for her daughter to try and I gave her the first three in the Vampire Academy series since her daughter had liked Twilight. Her mom returned not a week later beaming with joy many thanks and a shy request from her daughter for the next book in the series. I gave her the last three and she rushed home because her daughter had been, to put it mildly, going crazy not knowing what would happen next. Hearing of her reaction reminded me of the times when I myself was going crazy over a great book or series. It brought a huge smile to my face. Until I realized I had in fact abandoned my beloved book blog (and YOU!) and neglected my inner bookworm (aka my BFF). Reading has done so much for me throughout my entire life that I have found it difficult to forgive myself. And so, I humbly ask all of my fellow book lovers to forgive this young adult and know that I will try my best to immerse myself again in the wonderful/enchanting/far out world that is YA Book Blogging because reading will always have the distinction of being my first love. I hope you are all happy & healthy and curled up with a good book at this moment.

I've been waiting for a long time and I finally got a new look for the blog. Let me know what y'all think! On another note, I know I haven't been posting anything book related and I hope to start doing so soon, but for now I am happy to say that as of this past Tuesday I am now a member of the Air Force DEP :)
Hope you all have a great weekend!

I am thrilled to be participating in the Freedom Giveaway Hop this fourth of July weekend as it is one of my favorite times of the year and this year's celebration will be even sweeter as I am currently in the process of enlisting in the U.S. Air Force. As many of you know I have not been posting on a daily basis as I have in the past and now you know part of the reason why!
The prize I have up for grabs is:
Two books from The Book Depository (or Amazon if you live in the U.S.) worth up to $10 each. There will be one winner.
For this giveaway I will keep it simple again, just leave a comment with your name and email and just to make things more interesting I want you to answer this question:
"What is your favorite summertime food?"
You can get one extra extra entry for tweeting, please leave the direct link in a separate comment.
Good luck on all your giveaway hop entries!

According to Random.org the winners are
#1 Jennifer @ The Book Nympho
Congrats to the winners (I've never had #1 come up on random.org, seriously!). They will be contacted soon and will have 72 hours to respond.
On another note, I'm sure you have all noticed how horrible I have been with posting. Well my bad streak should be ending soon as some *projects* start wrapping up and I have time to actually sleep (and read of course!) Until then, happy reading everyone!
