For review/ Blog tour

 Big thank you to Sarah at The Book Life for telling me about the tour and sending me a copy!
Also.. she was totally sneaky.. She slipped bookmarks in between pages!
She knows my addiction to bookmarks so well lol.

And finally...

From Review form St. Martins Griffin 

 The Prey by Andrew Fukuda

Then I got my big shocker.. I flipped open the book, went to the praise page to see which awesome bloggers I recognized.. and there.. on the first page .... was ME o.O
well. not me. But a Blurb from my review of The Hunt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't tell you all how excited this made me. I used to dream of it. I would read quotes from authors and newspapers ect.. in books and think.. THAT is what I want to do. This was back in high school and middle school before I even knew about book blogging! I never knew book bloggers could have blurbs in books.. Then I joined the blogging community and met everyone. And as much as I continued to dream that I would see my blogs name in a book.. this still came as a huge surprise ! 

So thank you to all of you. If you didn't stay with me and my blog.. maybe I wouldn't have reviewed that book, and this dream wouldn't have come true. 

Here is my review of book #1 The Hunt

In other News

See that fancy new Meme banner at the top ? :) That's a hint at what's to come! 
I got a new design and can't wait to share it with you all! It should be live in a few days, and I will be having a giveaway to celebrate! So keep your eyes peeled and visit back!


  1. Yay for the quote..i was quoted too! The Prey rocked and I cannot wait to share my review. I loved, loved the Hallowed Ones! Till the World Ends was great..enjoy all your awesome new books! The Sunday Post

  2. I can't wait to see your new design, especially since the banner looks great! I was so tempted to request Poison but then I saw it was Disney, I always thought they didn't accept blogger requests? I love bookmarks as well and I'm hunting down some more frames to put the rest of my swag in.
    Congrats on the quote and I hope you enjoy your week Michelle!

  3. Being quoted in a book is the best feeling.

    Have a good week.

  7. WOW you got some awesome book sthre :)

  8. How exciting! I have been mentioned in the acknowledgements, but not quoted as praise ... yet! :-)

  9. Yay! I'm glad it made it there safely and that you found all the bookmarks! I like to be sneaky like that. I didn't love The Hunt, so I probably won't read The Prey, but I'll definitely check for your quote next time I'm at the bookstore :0)

  10. Ahhh! Your quote totally deserves to be in The Prey, it was spot on! Can't wait to get my copy. :)

  12. *ugly noises* You have Dualed!! And Poison looks pretty cool. I like the cover, though it reminds me of Kristen Stewart on the book edition of Snow White and the Huntsman. And I'm so happy to see you quoted in a book! I haven't read The Hunt, but I've been told I need to read it. Great haul!

  13. Gonna have to check out that book that Julie Kagwa wrote for!! Dualed and the Prey look pretty awesome too! I can't wait to read those. Hope you enjoy! My STS/Sunday Post
