Week in Review! (and Urban Fantasy Giveaway) (7/30-8/5)

Hey there lovelies! I'm hoping you've all been back and poked around the blog this week. I have been pretty on top of things if I do say so myself *grins* especially compared to how for pretty much the entire month of July I was posting one, maybe two posts a week. Well no more! This week there was a lot in store for everyone on the blog and around the blogosphere in general so check out what went down this week!
Events on the Blog:
I hosted two big events this week. One was a giveaway for Bitten By Books for Amazon giftcards! Unfortunately, that contest is over so I won't link it here. The other event was the Doorknob Society Blog tour! You can visit the tour still for today only and win a free copy of the Doorknob Society for yourself! Make sure to check out the review for it as well!

Books Reviewed:
Enclave by Ann Aguirre (3 stars)
A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony (5 Stars) 
Knocked Out By My Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison  (4 Stars)
The Doorknob Society by M.J. Fletcher(4 Stars)

At the beginning of every month, the amazing ladies at Book Soulmates change out their RAK sign up sheet. For those of you who haven't participated, it is this amazing event where bloggers, authors, and just readers come together and give other book lovers a book off their wishlist just as a Random Act of Kindness. I absolutely love this program because it's one of the times when us bloggers and reviewers can get away from the drama of the business and really show each other how much we care. For more info on RAK and to sign up your wishlist (and to see everyone else's) head to the Book Soulmates link up post!

Also starting just this month, For What It's Worth, All-Consuming Media, and are hosting another round of the Ultimate Reviewer's Challenge! If you're going to participate in one challenge this summer you should DEFINITELY do this one. It's not even that hard. Just link all the reviews you post during the month of August to their websites. At the end of the month each of the three host sites will pick three winners to win some AMAZING prizes! To link up, go to any of the blogs mentioned above!
Because I have TONS of books that I don't have room for, I'm going to start including a giveaway every time I do this Week in Review thing. THIS WEEK you can win an Urban Fantasy Prize Pack! Included in the pack ARE:
Ravenous (The Dark Forgotten #1) by Sharon Ashwood
Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls by Victoria Laurie
Cape Storm by Rachel Caine

To enter to win, just leave a comment with your name and a way to contact you (either email or twitter, etc) That's it! You've got until next Sunday to enter...or maybe sooner....I kind of want the books out of my house...So enter quickly before I just pick a winner!

If there's an event, giveaway, or future blog tour you'd like to promote let me know! I'd be happy to link on my sidebar and post on my Week in Review posts! I like learning about these things as much as the next girl so I'd be happy to! Have a great week everyone!
