Back in Business (+ giveaway!)

I AM BACK! Shout it from the rooftops, because I finished my finals and -hopefully- all that’s left is a graduation ceremony that I can’t wait to get over with. The past few weeks I decided to put my blogging and reading on hold, because I wanted to put everything I had in making sure that I passed these exams. I think I did alright, so since the results come in on June 12th, all I can do now is wait. And catch up on all that reading!

All my review copies (and bought books for that matter) are screaming at me to read them. Really, their screams feel like multiple little hands pulling me in their direction. I’m just going to make a list and cross off one by one. I missed reading, I missed blogging, but most of all I missed you guys, so from today on, the whole hiatus that was going on is thrown out the window (which doesn’t say a lot, since my room is on the ground floor, but who cares about the specifics?) and I am going to be dropping comments again, writing tons of blog posts, and most importantly reading lots and lots of books, as well as reviewing them! (I am currently 15 books behind on my Goodreads challenge! *gasp*)

As a celebration I decided to do a little impromptu giveaway. So go enter below for a change to win ARCs of Born of Deception by Terri Brown and The Life and Times of Benny Alvarez.

 I look forward to catching up with all of you!

      Ik blijf natuurlijk bloggen, maar ik ga nu (als het goed is) aan de universiteit van Leiden studeren. Engelse Taal en Cultuur :)

    I finished my semester. Finals were great actually. They went by so fast! Born of Deception is one of my most anticipated reads this year. I loved Born of Illusion so much!

    I have not had to take exams, which leaves me VERY happy! Instead, I spent the last week in the Smokie Mountains!

      Oh! That’s much better than exams! *Jealous!* haha, just kidding. I have a long period of nothing but holiday right now (which makes me very happy!)

    I missed you and your posts so much! Hopefully there are no more exams and such for you. I have my finals next week till Thursday and then on Friday I’m graduating high school! I’m so excited but kind of sad.

      Aw thank you! No more exams for me either! Those were the last and I am (hopefully) graduating as well!
      I hope you’ll rock those finals, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you :)
      I know what you mean though, about being excited but sad as well… what will you be studying?

      Lucky you! Fortunately, finals are over, which means that it’s holiday time for me as well!

    I had my exams about a month ago and now I’m graduated! So no more. :)

    WELCOME BACK! :) I’m slowly making my way back, as well, after an unintended kinda-hiatus because of school craziness, so I totally understand. Best of luck with your exam results- I’m sure you did GREAT! :)

    And early congratulations on your graduation!
