Special Post

Hey there everyone!

So, I've decided that I'll be doing these special posts from time to time to add a little variety to my blog.

So, as you may know, I am having a giveaway right now and the last day to enter is quickly approaching. April 10th is the last day to enter for your chance to win your choice of two books and a $10 gift card to the bookstore of your choice! :D

You can also be looking out for a review on Shiver by Maggie Steifvater, as well as a review for Radience by Alyson Noel and a review on The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins within the next week.

On a different note, this past weekend was my 2-year anniversary with my boyfriend. We went to see Red Riding Hood and I was thinking about going ahead with my idea of doing some movie reviews here and there. You can look forward to a review and comparison of this movie to it's original fairy tale!

Now for the sad news...Diana Wynne Jones passed away on March 26th. Jones was the author of the beloved HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE series. The first book in this series made a blockbuster hit animated by the renowned animator and director Hayao Miyazaki in 2004. The literary world will surely miss such a wonderful author.

Sorry for the sad ending, but I just wanted to pay my respects to an amazing woman.

Happy reading bloggers~
