                Around the Blogosphere:
                • Well, if you didn't know that The Story Siren was busted for plagiarizing, then you've clearly been living under rock, lol.  We're not going to get into it or provide upteen links to the influx of posts over the topic.  The whole thing turned into one giant pissing contest between her supporters/minions and those who wanted to tar and feather her.  Bottom line, what she did was wrong but it happened and seems like just about everyone is ready to move on now. Just know that the girls of Book Soulmates do NOT condone or excuse her actions (regardless of how popular she is) and we will be NOT be supporting her blog in any way.  That's how WE choose to take our stand on the matter!
                • So, are you a fan of Andrew Smith?  Well, if you are or if you aren't, you guys needs to check out this RAD announcement for our homegirl's Smash 'n friends 4-month long read-a-long feature.  Click on the image for details.

                1. All you have to do is put that search term back in Google and see what comes up. Heh. :)

                2. I've got to carve out some time to read Jenny Pox, Tommy Nightmare and Alexander Death. I have them all, just need to make it happen.

                3. That search term is weird and creepy.

                  Thank you SO much for the shout out!!

                4. I got "how to have sex with a kitty" once. Dear heavens that one still scares me to this day...

                  The Week at Book Brats!

                5. I'm reading Immortal Rules at the moment and despite my current anti-YA mood and general meh-ness towards paranormal and dystopia, it's actually getting really really good so yeah.. Worth being bullied into reading!

                6. Smash did the same for me. I read her review and it was all the stuff she said about the world-building that completely won me over. Though...I was actually planning on reading it anyway...

                7. I've been eyeballing Under the Never Sky. It sounds like it's right up my alley.

                  I LOVED LOVED LOVED The Immortal Rules. I am SO ready for the next book in the series.

                8. @Carrie: Pretty much my thoughts exactly!

                  @Amanda: I'm a little skeered to type "header erotic audio" into Google. Lordy knows what I'll end up with, lol.

                  @Smash: Way creepy and sooooo random! And you're so welcome ;)

                  @Megan: Ewwww!! That's disturbing on so very many levels!

                  @Hannah, Rubita & Kelly: Yeah, Smash is really good at her book bullying biz. I can't read it this week cuz I'm committed to a few others, but soon...very SOON!! lol


                9. I adore Stacia Kane's books and really loved both Sacrificial Magic and Chasing Magic, so I hope you'll feel similiar about them!!

                10. That is a creepy search term *shudders*

                  Bookbully Smash also got me all pumped up to read The Immortal Rules and I think she did the same with my friend Andy (the one we had dinner with after the Mafi/Rossi signing). Smash has been working bookbully overtime.
