Weekly Book Roundup (Oct #2) Plus Announcement

Is it Sunday again?!? I don't know where the times been going lately...
Anyhoo, here's what I got this week1!

In My Mailbox:
  I won the Catching Fire Giveaway at YA Book Realm, and the prize pack came in the mail this week from the publiser! I was so excited! I can't wait to read it! I need to trim down my TBR pile before tackling that, though.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

  YA Book Realm is now participating in the Cirque Du Freak movie giveaway, which I'm sure you've all seen around town. The prize includes the first three Cirque du Freak books by Darren Shan bound as one, and a locker mirror! There will be two winners, and it ends October 23, so head on over and enter today!

  In other news, Dahlia of Dahlia's Eclectic Mind is havuing her first EVER giveaway in the form of a (possibly annual) Blogoversary Pumpkin Carving Contest! The prize is your choice of the following:

  All you gotta do is carve a BOOK THEMED pumpkin and send her the pic! I'm one the esteemed "celebrity" judges, so aim to impress me! Y'all know what I like. ;)

Happy reading!

1  Kudos to The Story Siren for starting and promoting the fantabulous IMM meme!
2  The book looks very small, but it's just because the shirt is very large.
3  See? I'm swimming in it! And that's after I cinched the back! It's really comfy, though. :)
