Okay, confession: I have been a total reading slacker this month. I have done a few beta reads, and I did a lot of writing and editing, so I certainly haven't been idle with my time. But yeah. I'm a little bit ashamed of my lack of published book reading this month. And I'm going to kind of cheat. Just this weekend/the early part of this week, I reread LIRAEL by Garth Nix, keeping a close eye on how he does world building. It TOTALLY counts as a book I read this month, because I did read it, but it's probably not fair to the poor other (two) books I read this month because it's already one of my favorites.

This is convenient, because I've been wanting to fit in a congratulations on my blog to the lovely Veronica Roth for her super amazing book deal. I haven't read DIVERGENT, but I am one hundred percent certain she deserves it. I mean, she made the awesomesauce award, after all. The awesome is built right in! So anyway, if you haven't yet congratulated her...do it.

The very first ARC giveaway of THE DUFF by Kody Keplinger is happening at YA Highway. It's easy to enter, and you will love this book! It's easy to enter and so worth it to be able to say YOU were the first one to win a copy.

So...I thought this was going to be an easy question to answer, but when I actually sat down to write this blog post, I realized, not so much.

Thanks everyone who commented :) I'll leave the bottom non-teaser part up, though, because the sentiment still stands:

What? The title of this post doesn't seem to have anything to do with writing? That's because...it doesn't. But every time I get (and recover from) a cold or other illness, I'm reminded of how great my immune system is.
