In My Mailbox (15)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

I'm Alison. I've been blogging for four months. I review mainly YA with a few MG books and a weekly manga feature.

GIVEAWAY! I'm giving away a SIGNED copy of Book Crush by Nancy Pearl. Go HERE to enter!

I decided to enter Steph Su Reads' Banned Book Challenge. Check out my post about it here!

Currently, I'm in the middle of Harry Pott-ober! Throughout October, I'll be doing my Third Annual Harry Potter Re-Read. Check out my post about it here.
