Latest FYFA Giveaway Winners!!:
- Danielle Hammelef won my November Make Me Read It Giveaway! She chose to make me read You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour. We’ll be doing a dual review, but it might take a few weeks. Watch for it!
I got Timekeeper and Chainbreaker from Sky Pony Press. I already read the first and LOVED it, and I’m now on to the second book. Watch for my review and Sim’s Top 10 Addictions, coming next week (maybe even tomorrow!).
I am going to be participating in the tour for Say You’ll Remember Me, so I got the book (via NetGalley). I’m excited for a new book by McGarry!!
