Upcoming NEW Features!!
Be Still My Heart, Damon
I'm planning on making this a weekly celebration devoted to Mr Sexy Vamp! Each post will include something delicious - quotes, pics or you tube snippets from the last Vampire Diaries episode. After the drool fest that happened when I posted his bath tub scene, how could I resist?
BFF Book Banter
It was my BFF Lacey who got me into blogging and we both share a strong addiction to reading romance. We usually text back and forth about what we're reading and seeing as we both blog, we thought it we be perfect if we did a feature together. The plan is we'll choose a book, read and review it, then discuss what we liked/disliked about it. Should be lots of fun because we both have quirky senses of humor and things can get a little strange.
I was recently visiting another friend's blog and caught a glimpse of her blog roll.. OMGSH she had some amazing blogs on there I'd never heard of. It gave me the idea of doing a feature where I spotlight the different blogs out there - ones I already have on my blog roll or find on others. We're always in search for something fun and entertaining so I can't wait to get started.
Blowing Off Some Steam
Hehehe sometimes I read or hear something that just really stirs the pot and I break out into a full rant. I can be pretty opinionated when I want to be so why not do it as a feature. I'm thinking also I may use this just for sharing thoughts as well. Big rant... mini rant.. you'll find it here.
One of the most popular Palooza posts I saw based on comments were the cheesy covers and I'll admit, they were so much fun to do because I was able to be cheeky with them. I'm always coming across covers that make me wonder what the heck was the publisher thinking so now instead of keeping it to myself, I'll share them. Just wait until you see the first one. My BFF showed me it and I instantly thought of you all.
Free eBook Alert
Ok this is pretty self explanatory. I just think.. I'm searching for me, why not share what I find? I'll make sure to always include for both Kindle and Nook but forgive me if sometimes I forget. I'm a Kindle girl so it's where I look first *grins* If you find any freebies, you can always post a comment and share as well.
Get Your Swoon On
What kind of romance reading addict would I be if I didn't have at least one feature that focused on those moments that have us in a complete swoon. It could be from anything - a kiss, a conversation... anything. Just another excuse to get all goey and tingly!
Hunting For Sexy Heroes
If you're like me, when you read, you like to imagine what the hero looks like and match it to someone real. That's what this feature is about. I'll be scouring the internet in search for those yummy specimens I think would make great romance heroes. It's a sucky job but someone has to do it, right? I have a feeling this will be extremely popular *winks*
"Let's Get Ready To Rumble!"
When I first started blogging, I had this as a monthly feature where I pitted book related things against each other - books, characters, you name it was up for scrutiny. I had so much fun that I've been dying to do it again. Hopefully you'll all enjoy it!
Let's Do The Snoopy Dance!
This is another feature I wanted to bring back. There's so many exciting things going on... in my life and in the book world that sometimes all I want to do is stop and do the Snoopy dance to celebrate. It's so easy to get stuck focusing on the negative and I thought this would be a great way to look for the positive.
The Bookish Snob's Top Ten
Hehehe I'm the Queen at making lists so I may as well put that talent to good use and have a little fun with it. I'm really looking forward to this feature because there's so many possibilities *smiles*
Waiting For Pay Day
I tried to make this into a meme last year but for some reason it didn't stick. I loved the whole idea of sharing those books - old and new - that I really wanted but had to wait to buy because I was broke. It was a no brainer to bring it back as a feature.
Hehe I just mentioned to my BFF - most people when they want to add something new, maybe pick 1 or 2 things. But not me... I'm the over achiever who says "I want to try everything" and has to create 12 new features. I hope you enjoy them as I do them. Some may appear more frequently and others once and a while. Let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions. Happy reading guys!!
