Goodie 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.

Weekly Blog Recap
Author/Pub sign-ups are still open for the 2nd Annual March MG Madness Event. All authors are welcome!

This week I reviewed Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway and gave it only one and a half sad cupcakes; check my review out to find out why.

The Broken Blog Tour stopped by with a guest post from author A.E. Rought, and the Revolution 19 Blog Tour stopped by with my interview with author Gregg Rosenblum.

I spotlighted Walt Morton's funny and creepy YA book American Ghoul and I'm giving away three ebook copies (still open). I participated in the Release Book Blitz with an excerpt and ebook giveaway (still open). And finally, I helped reveal the awesome book trailer for the Mindjack Trilogy by Susan Kaye Quinn.

What did you get this week??
