ARC Winners!!

Before I announce the winners I wanted to tell you two things:

1. If you didn't win--don't worry! In a few days, I'll be announcing another giveaway! This one will have as many YA ARCs, including one that rhymes with Dutiful Starkness and one that rhymes with Mightshade. ;-) (If you don't get those, don't worry--you will soon!)

2. Thank you SO much for spreading the word about the contest the way you did. I feel like I'm getting to know a lot of fun new people through all this and I hope we continue the same way!

And now, down to the good stuff! Though first, I have to say:


It's really hard to part with some all of these!





loved love them and want to read them over and over again





*cries a little bit at handing them off*





*dries eyes and smiles,  because I'm happy to share the awesomeness*





And, a quick note to my dear winners:


It's my sincere hope that you'll review these books after you read them,


that you'll spread the word about how amazing they are


because writing is hard and publishing even more so


and we want to help these fabulous authors rise to fabulous success!






Okay, are you getting antsy yet?




Just a few more lines until I announce!
