Monday RunDown

Well, it's Monday morning and I'm fighting off a cold...and have every intention of going back to bed as soon as I hit Publish on this post :D So, since my brain is a haze of nothingness at the moment, I thought I'd do a rundown of some important things coming up.

1. Don't forget to head to the Operation Awesome Blog and become a follower for a chance to win 10 of my gently loved books and possibly a $20 gift certificate! Be sure to leave a comment on the post from yesterday either here or at OA. We are already up to 11 new followers which means I'm giving away at least 2 books so far.

2. Since my book release date is creeping ever closer (eep!) annnnd since it comes right after the holidays, I decided I should probably start getting my epic celebrations organized. If you'd be interested in hosting me on my blog tour, please email me at authormichellemclean(at)yahoo(dot)com. I will have swag items and signed copies of books to giveaway along with the interview, guest post, review, or whatever you'd like to do with me :)

3. Vote on the poll listed on the sidebar ---> I want to get an idea of what kinds of prize swag everyone would like to win. We are going to have some fun people, F.U.N.! :D

4. Has anybody read any good books lately? I am actually going to make my 52 Books in 52 Weeks challenge this year (woohooo!) I read more than 52 books last year, but since I reread four or five very long series, I couldn't count those. I'm reading Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero right now and then I'm heading to the bookstore, so I need some suggestions! :D

And now, I must crash :) Have a happy Monday everyone!

I just bought The Lost Hero. Are you enjoying it better than the Egyptian one?

Hey Kristal! :) I actually really like The Red Pyramid. And loving The Lost Hero so far. Only 20 pages in, but totally hooked :D

Hope you feel better! Mondays can have that effect...

Looks like you've read some awesome books this year. I also read all of the Percy Jackson books this year and loved them!
For your next read I can recommend CLOCKWORK ANGEL by Cassandra Clare, or FIRELIGHT by Sophie Jordan, or PARANORMALCY by Kiersten White.
How does THE LOST HERO compare to the Percy Jackson books?

Colene Murphy said...

Feel better! Would love to host on your tour! That would be awesome.

Get some good rest!

Feel better soon. Sleep and chicken soup always do the trick for me. Following Operation Awesome which is very cool. So happy to hear you are making the 52 books goal. Lots of good books. I've been talked into running the 52 books challenge again next year - I'm so easy. :)
