First, I was emailed by a team member from Entangled Teen: Crush to review two of their books, Offsetting Penalties by Ally Mathews and The First Kiss Hypothesis by Christina Mandelski. I'm currently reading Offsetting Penalties, and my review will be published on the 2nd. I then have to read First Kiss Hypothesis real quick, and that review will be up on the 5th! There will also be an author guest post on the 10th by Ally Mathews, so be on the lookout for all those posts! I was so elated when I got the email to review these books. I have never been contacted to review; I have always requested, so this was very exciting for me!!
Second, I was auto-approved on Netgalley for Simon & Schuster Children's, which is crazy!! I rarely request from them, simply because I know I will most likely be denied. So it was an utter surprise to see that I was auto-approved, and I'm tickled pink.
|Look at that!! Ahh!!|
Both of these *events* are just so validating. I love blogging, but seeing comments and seeing people notice my blog makes me actually feel like I'm doing something important. Knowing that I am making an impact, as little as it is, makes me very excited! Hopefully I'll be able to do some deeper and more complex posts soon. Of course I love to talk about books, but I also have other passions, and I want to use this blog to combine all of them together.
So yeah, I just wanted to give you guys an update! It's been a bit since I've just talked about my blogging experience instead of just posting my usual posts, and wanted you to know what's happening! I'm pretty strapped for time 24/7, but I hope to blog more regularly soon. I'm actually writing this during a medieval British Literature class (we're talking about Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and my attention has disappeared) that is required for my major!
Okay...that's it! (I think!) If anything else happens, I'll be writing another one of these. :D I'm just super happy that both of these things happened, and it spurred a lot of creativity and excitement for this blog!
Well, enough rambling! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
Genni @ Ready, Set, Read!
