In my world
I have a new blog design thanks to Read-A-holicZ star designs.  I absolutely love it, she took on everything I said and just a few days later had the surprise of finding my design up and running.  So if you are getting this as an email post or through a feed then come and check out my new design.

What's going on in the blogosphere
Bookbrats has a great post with advice for new bloggers, it has some very insightful thoughts and is a must read ofr ALL budding bloggers

Random House UK has a trailer for Noble Conflict by Malorie Blackman.  Take a look, you know you want to.

Of Triton by Anna Banks purchased by myself [read already]
Gemini by Penelope Ward free

Although I have an iPad I have never checked out iBooks before, I found some great books and I need to remind myself to check this out more often.  Tales From Pitch End sounds like a great read and I am looking forward to making a start on this soon.  I loved the sound of Falling Hard so I was excited to receive this from netgalley, I have already finished this book and my review will be up near publication date.  Freedom Road is to be read as part of a blog tour, so this one will be read very soon.  I love the cover for this one.  Angelfire and Gloss were both sent unsolicited but they sound like great reads, I am hoping to be able to fit these in between my review books.  Of Triton was a pre-order, and I got excited for each email telling me about its dispatch.  I intended to wait before reading this but I made a start on reading the first  few chapters and couldn't put it down.  While there wont be a review for this book on my blog as it was a 'for fun read' I am going to post a mini review on my thoughts on goodreads.  I really enjoyed Heidi's book Forever My Girl so I had to purchase Lost In You.
