In wake of this week's scandal, I'm going to do a recap of books I received, books I read, and my posts instead of In My Mailbox. I haven't commented on the drama nor will I except to say that I am very disappointed both with Kristi and with the YA blogging community (especially the Twitter-sphere). I don't know what the consequences will be or should be. But I'm using this as an excuse to change the format for my mailbox posts.
On the Blog This Week
*Don’t forget!!!! --> Read Outside the Box!
