Happy Monday, everyone, and happy April! Who knew the year was going to fly by so fast? It's already 25% over. Unbelievable, am I right? I have been in a love/hate relationship with Mondays these past few weeks. I mean, it's not like they're my favorite day to begin with, but yeah. I have gotten some really good news and some really awful news these past weeks. So I guess it evens out…

Anyway. Right. The book and stuff.

Life After Theft
Aprilynne Pike
Publisher: Harper Teen
Release Date: April 30, 2013
I punched in the numbers, then my finger hovered over the star. I closed my eyes and pushed, expecting flashing lights and cops with their guns drawn. I could almost hear the megaphone. Step out of your car with your hands up!

So, yes, there you have it. Want to win this book? Just enter using the rafflecopter below. That, and read my giveaway rules, because believe it or not I actually can tell when you don't.

Thank you so much for reading my blog. Even if you only come for giveaways, or if you're a daily reader, you are a hugely important person in my life and I cannot describe in words how much I love you. Stay fabulous, always.



  1. Wow, that cover is big. It's such a amazing book, isn't it? I never really knew that it was going to be a male protag. I don't think I can ever imagine a boy reading this book though it's perfectly suited for them...

    Ha, oh well. Happy Easter :D xxx

  2. Sounds good! I love Aprilynne Pike's Wings series.
    Thanks and happy Easter!

  3. LIFE AFTER THEFT looks great thank you.

  4. Thanks for the giveaway! I've been wanting to read this book.

  5. I commented on the Mystic City Review.
