…and even MORE giveaways…

Like you don’t love them enough. Because I SO DO.

Okay, for starters, I’m uber busy at the moment and won’t get down to real maintenance on any of my blogs until November, so they will be on official hiatus until then. However, because I heart contests will all my heart (that…was weird), I will be doing only posts throughout the hiatus of links to giveaways. So it’s not like a total hiatus. I’m still here. And alive.

I’m really tired at the moment, so I’m just going to sort of NOT ramble through this…and make it short and sweet. Please note that the ones below are ending September 10. I will add on more links for contests that are ending soon (but not ending on September 10).

A Whole Bunch of Links to Catching Fire Swag Ending September 15

Also, guys, be sure to check out my new giveaway blogroll. There are a few more there, and those will usually be updated first.

Be back later…with more links. πŸ™‚

More Giveaways…

Traveling to Teens

Traveling to Teens is holding a giveaway of Michelle Zink’s Prophecy of the Sisters, a book I simply can’t wait to read. The giveaway ends today though, so I suggest hurrying up to get over there to enter before it’s too late!

Also, be sure to check out that link for another giveaway going on–Another Faust by Daniel and Dina Nayeri. I love the cover (yes, I can be a bit of a cover snob). This one started a little later, so you still have time to enter until September 10!

Want even MORE books? Go to Bloody Bookaholic’s contest going on right now until September 27. You have to see how many books are available. It is MIND-BLOWING, seriously. If you decide to sign up, be sure to say that I was your referrer (please?)! You get an extra entry for saying who your referrer was.

Yes, even more contests…

I’m proud to admit it: I am a Bloomsbury geek. So when I saw that Presenting Lenore was holding a contest of ALL Bloomsbury books (yes, including some Shannon Hale books thrown into the bunch), my jaw dropped. Really. My mouth was hanging open. Go take a look at it. Go. NOW.

I know some of you guys really liked Mary E. Pearson’s The Adoration of Jenna Fox (which is coming out in paperback in a few days! I can’t wait to get my hands on that one), so I bet you’re getting hyped up for The Miles Between. Mrs. Magoo Reads is giving away three copies of the latter novel–just check out the trailer for the book at Mrs. Magoo’s blog and enter!

I think you guys like historical fiction…well, I do anyway. The Story Siren is giving away two of Michelle Moran’s books…and these look really interesting. Probably really good reads if you’re taking AP World History (I dropped last year…this year I’m taking APUSH…but still, these look GOOD. I love historical fiction). Check it out!

I believe that’s all…I’ll let you guys know of any more that pop up! πŸ˜€

edit: Yes, there are more! If you’d like to win Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev, your chance awaits you here!

Another Giveaway!

Coming 12/22/09 from Bloomsbury…

Nimira is a music-hall girl used to dancing for pennies. So when wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to sing accompaniment to a mysterious piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it will be the start of a better life. In Parry’s world, long-buried secrets are about to stir. Unsettling rumors begin to swirl about ghosts, a madwoman roaming the halls, and Parry’s involvement in a group of corrupt sorcerers for whom the rules of the living and dead are meant to be broken for greater power. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing fairy gentleman is trapped within the automaton, she is determined to break the curse. But even as the two fall into a love that seems hopeless, breaking the curse becomes a perilous race against time. Because it’s not just the future of these star-crossed lovers that’s at stake, but the fate of the entire magical world.

Want to win an ARC with original sketches from the author inside? See for details!

(I WANT this book. Badly. The cover is really pretty, and the premise sounds neat! And yay for authors with a similar name to mine!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜‰ )

Hello, Again! (and the Introduction of TFPWU)

So. I have been away. But I have been brought back. If you’ve been keeping yourself updated with my journal blog, you will know why. For now, I want to share with you all that I will be trying to keep up this blog again (I didn’t abandon it, I simply didn’t have time for it πŸ˜› ), but for now, I will be doing weekly updates called…er, I’m not quite sure what to call it, actually. πŸ˜› I was going to call it a retrospective of sorts, but so many other blogs have something similar and call it exactly that, so it doesn’t seem highly original. My creative juices aren’t exactly flowing for this kind of thing, so I think for now I’m just going to call it “The Forest Princess’s Weekly Updates”, or TFPWU. Yes, “The Forest Princess” is yours truly. Do you guys have any ideas for a title for it? The current title seems so dry and generic, personally. Also, I will be adding some extra features to the site. I’m still working on them, but if you look at the directory tab above, you will see the few pages I have added. I’m also deleting some posts (namely, the ones explaining the format of my reviews, and yes, I am slightly changing the format, but just a wee bit) and moving them to their own separate pages parented by the directory. Just go check on the directory every so often! I may not update it every single day (I’ve been so terribly, terribly, terribly busy, and will continue to be), but just check every once in awhile for something new! πŸ˜€ So. Now I may commence “The Forest Princess’s Weekly Updates” (TFPWU). *fanfare consisting of many trumpets πŸ˜‰ * But pleast note that this first one will include this week and last week’s updates.

What I Finished This Week These Past Two Weeks

  • The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy by Jeanne Birdsall

What I’m Reading Now

  • Once Upon a Curse (The Tales of the Frog Princess #3) by E.D. Baker
  • River Secrets (The Books of Bayern #3) by Shannon Hale

What I’m Reviewing Now

  • Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale. I’m actually done writing it, and have been for several months now, but I haven’t posted it on here yet. You can read it on Goodreads, though! πŸ˜€
  • Howl’s Moving Castle (The Castle Series #1) by Diana Wynne Jones. I’m done writing this one as well, and it can also be found on Goodreads, but I have yet to post it here. Grr!

What I’ve Watched

  • Lost in Austen (2008)
  • I Dream of Jeannie Season Three (Discs One, Two, and Three) (1967)
  • The Mission (1986)
  • Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day (2008)
  • Little Dorrit (2008)

What I’m Watching Now

  • I believe I will be watching Mamma Mia! (2008) next, but I haven’t started it yet.

Who and What I’m Listening To Now

  • I found out this week that Ashley Monroe’s debut album, Satisfied is available on iTunes, and was thrilled because I’ve been DYING to buy her songs “Satisfied” and “Pain Pain”. I’ve listened to them so many times since I bought them earlier this week, but before lunch today I had a sudden odd penchant for any song I had in three-four or six-eight time–something sort of waltz-y or dancey-ish, I guess.

edit: Hey folks, step on over to Reviewer X’s blog, where she is giving away that book you’re probably dying for (and if you’re not, you’re probably drooling all over the keyboard). Click, link (if you want), and comment! Easy and simple as that. πŸ˜€
