    I nominated my own blog for that award, it’s awesome to see how many different blgos use the tweak me theme and how every one of them looks different. That’s what I love about the tweak me theme. I am curious to see who will win. Nice haul you got this week, I hope you’ll enjoy your new books and have a great week!

    I’ve been debating for months about purchasing the Tweak Me theme but haven’t done it yet!!

    I am curious about Spinning Starlight! Hope you love it!

      I love the way both ofyour blogs look. But if you ever do decide to change, the tweak me theme is wonderful. I have been debating updating mine and giving myself a landing page but I am not sure.

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      LMAO BEA! I have no idea. How pathetic is that? (I do my haul in two parts, the physical book picture and then adding in the ebooks after) and I totally did not realize until you said something. haha I cannot stop laughing.

    Congrats on the nomination, and good luck! I see you’ll be reviewing Heart of Betrayal- I’ve been thinking of reading those, I’ll have to check out your thoughts. Have a great week!

    Congrats on getting nominated for the Tweak me Thing. ๐Ÿ™‚ There a lot of blogs on there I know! You got some pretty cool looking books, so I hope you like them all!:)


    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Stormi, there are so many amazing blogs on there. I was scrolling and I couldn’t stop saying oh i love that blog. Oh that blog is soooo pretty and then when I found mine I nearly fell out of my seat! haha

  5. Karen Blue

    Congrats on your nomination! You got 5 books reviewed last week! I was happy about 4, but now I have a new goal. I am bit jealous you got Spinning Starlight and Hunter. I am still waiting on my request for Hunter in NetGalley, it is not looking too good. I can’t get any love from Disney. I hope you enjoy all your new reads!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      Thanks Karen ๐Ÿ™‚ and yea it was a good review week for me, and I just noticed that I have one of each rating except for 1 and 4 star, but still. it was a varied week book wise.

      And as for Disney. I have had the same problem up until recently. I wasn’t getting any ebook or physical books from them. If you ate in the US I would recommend writing to their publicity email with your stats and asking to sign up for any YA lists they have. They sent me a form to fill out. I think they are switching to a new system. (I also tweeted at them.) their publicity email is dpw.publicity@disney.com

    I really want a copy of Down the Rabbit Hole. But for the life of me, I don’t know why I am drawn to Alice related stuff when Alice got on my nerves so much. I guess I really liked the Wonderland itself.
