My giveaway officially ended last night at 11:59 PM! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone that entered, tweeted, retweeted, and helped me spread the word! I wish I could give every one of you something but alas, I’m not that rich. =( Instead, I hope you will settle for virtual hugs!

I am working this whole weekend and have a party to attend tomorrow afternoon and evening, but Monday looks pretty as of now so I will aim to post the winners then!! Again, thank you so much, everyone! =’) You guys are seriously amazing!

If you don’t end up being one of my two winters, I promise that in about a month’s time, I’m going to hold a giveaway for a finished copy of a book (though I’m not sure which one). And the giveaway will be international! =D So don’t go away just yet. ;)

I’ve been M.I.A. . . . again!

As you can tell, I’ve yet again taken one of those darn unexpected hiatuses. This time, it was to read the Harry Potter series in its entirety for the first time. It’s taken a while but now I’m on book six and will be finished within the next week. I will be posting a couple things before then though, including my long overdue review of The Meowmorphosis (which will be up tomorrow or Wednesday).

Aaaaanddddddddd…… I’m almost there! Hello to my 20 followers. =) Once I reach 25, I will be doing a giveaway for an ARC of Across the Universe by Beth Revis and a finished copy of Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. So keep spreading the word and thanks to everyone who’s been helping me! It’s so appreciated, I can’t even put it into words.

I’m Back!

Hello, lovely people!

As you can tell, I’ve been on hiatus for a lot longer than I originally intended. But for good reason. I’m happy to announce that I’m now employed by Panera Bread. I will begin working part time shortly, the building is still under construction. It was a long, tedious job search but I’m grateful to have finally found it. Also, the issues I was facing have become less dominant in my life. I’m not fully recovered yet but I’ve regained my drive for things and am a lot happier! =) Things aren’t all resolved, of course, but I’m working through them with the help of my wonderful family and some beautiful, beautiful friends. And of course, I wouldn’t be anywhere without the encouragement of my amazing online friends!

My next review will be available tomorrow, April 25th April 26th. I also got the opprotunity to head to Lisa and Laura Roecker’s launch party of The Liar Society on March 5th. It was tons of fun and such an honor! They are incredibly kind, humble, amazing ladies. I will be reviewing their book soon! Look out, guys! The Lizard is back.


Hiatus Time

Lizzie     Jan 31st, 2011     General     0 Replies

Okay. So. As you can tell, this blog has been very dead as of late. Well, this is because, not to make excuses or anything, I’ve been not only super busy with school and job hunting, but I’m going through a lot of things that have made it hard to focus on my blog and websites. I’m still around on the internet sometimes but not as often as I’d like. Mostly, I’m on Twitter, since I can be on that right from my phone, but I’m on Tumblr sometimes as well.

I’ve come to decision, to prevent people from being annoyed with me for not posting and leaving you hanging, that I will have to put this blog on hiatus from now until further notice. I can’t say when exactly I will start posting again but I’m hoping for mid-March to beginning of April. During this time, I will write the reviews that are owed and they’ll be posted when I return.< I bid my followers (all five of you! <3) and any fellow book lovers who happen upon this blog in the mean time a lovely month! See you soon!

Smart Chicks Kick It!

Lizzie     Sep 17th, 2010     General     0 Replies

Hey guys! I type to you in mass excitement, for next week on this day, at this time, I will be at the Cincinnati Smart Chicks Kick It! signing with Alyson Noel, Kelley Armstrong, Melissa Marr, Margaret Stohl, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, and Jeri Smith-Ready. It’s my first ever author signing and I’m so excited to meet so many lovely writers whom I look up to! Since it’s also a discussion, I need some help from my [few and far between] lovely readers! So here it is… In the comments, leave a question you’d like me to ask one or more of the authors that will be at the signing!

Simple enough, eh? =) I can’t guarantee that I’ll able to ask all, or even any of the questions as Joseph-Beth says they’re expecting between 300 and 400 people, I’ve heard but I will try.
