News from around the blog:

* I designed my own blog background and implemented a new rating system! Now you can choose whether or not you want to see the rating. I was trying to appeal to all the review readers that I might have!

*  Started a new feature called "Me" Mondays! Stop on by every month to submit a question and enter to win fun prizes! 

* As I mentioned above, I'm hosting my first ever Reading Challenge! It is dedicated to "Beach Reads" and all things summer. Come on over and enter to win some fabulous prizes and have some fun!

Another great month my friends! Here's to many more to come!
