O.M.G.: What are you waiting for? Go out and buy this book now! Superb: It's wonderful, but you can wait for a coupon. Give it a try: It's good, but I would wait for paperback. Meh: It will be in the library eventually. Naahhhhhhhhh!!!: Do I really need to explain?
It's Monday, and it's time to see What's on The Cover. Next up on the hit parade is Everything I Never Wanted to Be by Dina Kucera. This one comes courtesy of a blog tour with Pump up Your Book Promotion (http://www.pumpupyourbookpromotion.com/). There will be a guest post from Dina Kucera (Nov. 10) and a review (Nov. 11). Everything I Never Wanted to be is about Ms. Kucera's struggle to overcome addiction. I'm always fascinated by how other people live, so I jumped at the opportunity to take part in a blog tour. The cover of book, while simple, is also powerful. I can see a little girl without a face, getting lost in the vast black cover. There's a story there. One's childhood is supposed to be full of life and cheerful, and obviously that didn't happen with the child on this cover.
The TBR pile is growing. Hopefully by Friday or Saturday I will have a review of Blood Lily by Mason Cranswick up. November will be a full month here. Here is a list of upcoming events:

Note: Next month's question for "What's Up Tweeps?!" I guess this one is geared toward bloggers, but if you're a writer or you think it applies to you feel free to answer. As a blogger, have you found your writing voice yet? If so how long did it take you? E-mail response to me at email@example.com. Entries are open until Nov. 14.
I love, love to read. I accept literary fiction, chick lit, memoirs, mysteries, historical fiction and contemporary YA books for review. If you think your book is for me, I will make an exception for other genres. At this time, I am accepting a limited amount of e-books. If I can't get into your book after 60-70 pages, I will not review it. Books are read in the order they are received. Reviews will be posted within 6-8 weeks upon receiving the book. Reviews of books not yet published will be posted closer to the publication date. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Opportunities for guest posts, interviews and giveaways can also be arranged.
