Weekly wrap-up: July 6-12

This has been a good week for a lot of reasons. First, I read two books! Second, I got to moderate a panel at Irving Public Library on Thursday featuring Corey Whaley, Sherry Thomas, Veronica Rossi, Lisa Stasse, and Julie Murphy, which was a blast! Finally, the North Texas Teen Book Festival's Kickstarter was successfully founded yesterday afternoon after reaching a little of $10,600! Thank you all for your help spreading the word about the festival and the campaign. You helped make this festival a reality, and I can't thank you enough for that. As for my NTTBF giveaway, both the US and INT winners have been chosen so make sure you check your email. How was your week?

Breathe, Annie, Breathe (Hundred Oaks #5) - Miranda Kenneally: 4 stars. I read this book in less than 24 hours, and it was exactly what I needed. There's wonderful character development, romance, humor, friendship, and family. I love that I know Miranda will always deliver greatness, but she accomplishes it differently every time. LOVE HER. There will be a Hundred Oaks-themed giveaway sometime soon as well as a full review. Comes out on Tuesday, and I recommend you read the entire series!
Perfect Couple (Superlatives #2) - Jennifer Echols: 5 stars. Love love love! Also read this in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down! Jenn always writes the book I need to read. Perfect Couple continues the study on identity and how others' perception of us can affect how we see ourselves. Full review much closer to pub time as this is a January 2015 book!
