A Note & Giveaway

Hi everyone! As you may or may not have noticed, there haven’t been any posts on The Book Belles for the past month or so. With starting college, I was really debating what to do blogging-wise. Blogging has been such a huge part of my life the past 3+ years, and therefore is something I definitely didn’t want to give up. However, I was worried school would take up too much of my time, and that I wouldn’t be able to commit to blogging. After talking to both blogging friends and cobloggers, I decided to put the blog on hiatus for a month and work on catching up on reviews and posts during that period. I’m so excited to be back and several posts are scheduled for October! If you’re a participant in the contemporary scavenger hunt, a huge giveaway and review link-up for the past few months will be going up at the end of the month, too. Thank you so much to everyone who's still visited The Book Belles through the hiatus and I'm really looking forward to the years of blogging to come :)


I also haven't hosted a giveaway in a while, so I'm giving away the winner's choice of an October YA release! :) Here are some of the books you could pick from if you win:

DreamstriderRomancing the Dark in the City of LightIce Like Fire (Snow Like Ashes, #2)Happily Ever After (The Selection, #0.4, 0.5, 2.5, 2.6)  The Rose Society (The Young Elites #2)The White Rose (The Lone City, #2)Gabriel (The Styclar Saga, #2)Velvet Undercover
