Yes, I definitely overpacked when it came to books, but I liked having choices. Short reviews for all of those are up at Goodreads - and I even have a profile picture up there now! I have a ton of reviews that need to be posted in addition to these, so reviews might go back up to five a week for a little bit so I can get somewhat caught up.
After all of the excitement in January, February was a bit quieter. Nominations for the Nerds Heart YA tournament did open up though - and they continue through March 7th! Please continue to send in your nominations through the handy-dandy form - check out the criteria to see if your favorite under-represented 2010 book could find a place in the tournament. I had fun last year as a judge, and I'm totally excited and honored to be participating this year as a consultant, helping to pare down the longlist of nominated titles into a shortlist of book that will be placed in a cutthroat tournament.
Or not so cutthroat, really. Book bloggers are pretty mild mannered, most of the time. But come on, make the consulting job hard for us and nominate a bunch of awesome books, okay?
Okay. Now off to go write up all of those long-awaited reviews...
