Happy 2014, My Darlings!

And so 2013 is over. 

Here is a list of major things 2013 will always be remembered for:
  • Becoming an aunt of 4 (as opposed to 2).
  • My first full year of blogging (during which I reviewed 106 books).
  • Those two months I spent in London (including a weekend in Paris and a day trip to Cardiff).
  • Those 2 months I spent in Israel.
  • BEA.
  • Completing the NYU Summer Publishing Institute course.
  • Going to Frankfurt.
  • Visiting Debby and Judith in Amsterdam. 
  • Getting a job at a bookstore. 
  • Reading 118 books, or 40,394 pages. (I mean, really, who am I?)

Here is a list of major things I'm pretty sure I'll remember about 2014:
  • ALA.
  • My second full year of blogging.
  • Another weekend in Paris?
  • BEA.
  • And about half a dozen other things I'm sure will pop up and will be more amazing than I can even imagine right now.

Now, since my last year was amazing and my upcoming year hopefully promises amazing, I've set up a *little* (mostly expired - gotta make way for the new stuff!) ARC giveaway. I'm not going to tell you EVERYTHING that's in this box o' ARCs, but I will say a signed ARC of Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo and an ARC of Cress by Marissa Meyer may or may not have crawled in when I wasn't looking. So, even if you're not interesting is anything else in this mystery box... you might just enter for those ;)
