TMI Trending Topic #2

I'm excited to announce that I've once again teamed up with @TMI_Institute, @TMI_Source & @TMIExaminer to try to get another TMI topic to trend. Each week between now and the release of COLS we'll be posting a new trend on Sunday. EVERYONE is welcome to join in on the trending. Together with all the TMI fans we feel we're be able to have another successful week like we did last week, but this definitely takes the help of all TMI fans.

On Monday, April 16 at 1:00 pm Eastern Standard time (NYC time - see to check it with your local time), we will start the following trend:


This week's tropic has to do with a question we're hoping to get answered in COLS. Who doesn't want to know what he's hiding. We know he's obviously up to something evil, but I want to know what Jace's role is in all this. Okay, I also want to know why Sebastian wants Jace. And I'd love to know what secret he's making Clary keep and what exactly his plan is.....

Don't forget, my COFA Read Along KICKS off this week! Stay turned for an exciting announcement about a COLS twitter party!! Details coming soon!

In My Mailbox #119 & Weekly Feature

Happy Sunday! I hope you've all had a great week. I for one am glad this week is behind me, as the horrid flu bug has finally left my house *does the happy dance*. Yesterday I was able to attend Teen Book Con in Houston, which was AWESOME! There were so many fabulous authors there. I'll post more about that this week. Here's some bookish events I'll be attending this week! If you're in the Austin area I hope to see you there!

Here are the books that I received/purchased this week. 

For Review:

Purchased: I purchased a few books from the Teen Book Con in Houston yesterday and two MG books from the Scholastic book fair I co-chaired this past week. I've already read and reviewed all the YA titles, but I didn't have them in published book form, so I had to pick them up. ;)
