Goodie Basket (30): Book Haul & Blog Recap



Goodie Basket...is a weekly feature hosted here at Word Spelunking that showcases all the goodies (books, bookish things, reviews, interviews/giveaways/guest posts, blog tours, etc) that popped up in the Goodie Basket that is Word Spelunking each week.

(This meme is inspired by other book haul memes such as Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, Showcase Sunday hosted by Books, Biscuits & Tea and Sunday Post hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer )

Weekly Blog Recap

The Possession and Surrender Blog Tour stopped by with a fun interview with author Elana Johnson and a giveaway! The Treason Blog Tour also stopped by with a fun video (about cupcakes) and a giftcard giveaway (still open!).

I featured two book blitzes this week: the Frost Fire Blitz (with excerpt and giveaway) and the Phoebe Pope Blitz (with excerpt and giveaway). I helped reveal the cover for Deeper We Fall by Chelsea M. Cameron.

And you can still enter my giveaway for the Book Lover's Holiday Giveaway Hop for a chance to win 3 YA titles from JKS Communications.
