Book Blogger Hop: July 23-26!!!

Book Blogger Hop
Before, I found out about the question of the week for this Hop, I wrote a post about some books I just got. Yikes! But here it goes: TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!

So, right now I'm reading Sea by Heidi R. Kling. I'm only a few pages in so I don't have much to say. If I'm being honest, I'm not too excited about it, but I'm not too far in so...that statement is not written in stone.
You can participate in the Blog Hop at Crazy For Books. Thanks to anyone in advance if you visit my blog!

In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

The top 3 are books I won!!:

I'm a total library fiend, so:

And lastly, from the wonderful Holly Cupala, I won a 2 chapter Sneak Peek of Tell Me a Secret plus a sticker, bookmark, and personal note!! So awesome!

I can't wait to get started on these books!!

My Bookshelves!

So this post is centered around the contest at Candace's Book Blog. She's celebrating 400 followers and is giving away to the first winner 2  books of their choice: Wake by Lisa McMann, Graceling by Kristin Cashore, The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson, and Going Bovine by Libba Bray. If she reaches 450 followers she'll add a second winner to pick one of the remaining books. If she reaches 475 she'll pick a third winner to get the remaining book. If she gets to 500 followers before August 15th she'll throw in another book! (Or maybe a GC!) So go follow and enter!

Here's my bookshelf:

This is my bookshelf at my mom's apartment. We moved there 2 years ago, and I decided to move into my dad's. But then I moved back into my mom's and never brought back all my boxes of books. So the books I have here are ones I've bought recently or I brought back home because I get urgings. For books. My Kindle is on top of the books on the left on the second shelf. On the same shelf on the right is a calendar from Italy. So here are some of my boxes in the closet in the room I stay in at my dad's:

The real Last Sacrifice Cover!

Apparently, the Last Sacrifice covers I've been seeing around the internet haven't been the real ones! When I went onto Goodreads tonight I saw a blog post from Richelle Mead showing the REAL cover of Last Sacrifice. Here it is:

What do you think? I think it's beautiful and I love the darker hair! I only wish Adrian was somewhere on the front...

Yay for PA!

I was just doing my daily thing, you know, reading Stephanie Kuehnert's awesome blog, Life, Words, & Rock 'n' Roll. And as I got to the end of the post I saw that Harmony from Harmony Book Reviews has organized an event in West Chester. The PAYA Event to bring YA to fame in good 'ol Pennsylvania. So awesome because I live in PA! About 45 mins. away from the event! If I don't go...well, I'll be able to blame one of my parenst for not driving me, but still! I'll be really upset. *setting plans in motion*
