I won my first Goodreads giveaway! Thanks to Britney King for signing and sending me her book Bedrock.
Much love to Jean from Jean Book Nerd blog and to Elana Arnold for signing and sending me a copy of her book Sacred. I flove the message Elana wrote in it.

Abbi Glines is so awesome. She sent me a signed copy of Twisted Perfection for participating in her book tour. Thanks, babe!
Watch out, LUVs. There will be a giveaway for this delicious book.

And tons of smooches for my sister, who gave this to me for Mother's Day. The blurb on the front and the summary on the back are so awesome they made me smile, laugh, then get the tingles. I have to share them.

Beautiful Outlaw  by John Eldredge
A dangerous book about a scandalous savior. Experiencing the playful, disruptive, extravagant personality of Jesus.

He was accused of nearly everything—breaking the law, keeping bad company, heavy drinking, and being the devil himself. He was so compelling they had to kill him.

But those who knew him best loved him passionately. He had a sense of humor. His generosity was scandalous. His anger made enemies tremble. He would say the most outrageous things. And this Jesus has not changed one bit; he is still himself, available to all who would know him.

Much love and gratitude to S.K. Falls, Katie French, and Patchwork Press for these pretties!

An enormous "Thank you!" to Flux Books and Macmillan Children's Publishing Group for these lovelies!

Thanks to the authors, YA Bound, AToMR Tours, GCR Promotions, and Xpresso Tours for these.
