this is SO cool!

Maybe I shouldn't post this, but I am so giddy and crazy-happy!
I'm still pretty new to the world of ARC-reviewing, and last week I wrote my review of Kiersten White's Paranormalcy. Well, she and her agent really liked my review, and said so on twitter! I just about fainted when I saw these tweets:

Kiersten White kierstenwhite I don't usually link reviews (I DO read and appreciate every one), but I won't be sad if you read @alwaysamelia's:

Michelle Wolfson WolfsonLiterary Now *that's* what I call an awesome review! RT @alwaysamelia: Review of PARANORMALCY by @kierstenwhite. Michelle Wolfson WolfsonLiterary Can you please RT this amazing review?? Read it too. RT @alwaysamelia: Review of PARANORMALCY by @kierstenwhite.

and then earlier today I saw this!
HarperTeen harperteen Paranormalcy is the newest Must Have book for the fall. ~@alwaysamelia A spoiler free review!

I think one of the most rewarding things about being a book reviewer is getting great feedback. It's incredible to know that for a few minutes, major publisher Harper Teen was thinking of me and my review. Wow. Insanely awesome. This is the first time this has happened for me. Thank you, Harper Teen and Wolfson Literary! You made a girl in a humid Texas town smile!

Oh, and please pre-order Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. Or buy it on August 31. Please! You won't regret it. If you're a student, it's just the thing you need to ease those back-to-school blues.

That's sweet! I don't have twitter but when I went to a publisher's twitter page they actually had a link to my blog! It was an amazing feeling to know that publishers and everyone take notice of what we love to do. So congrats on your recognition!

Talk about a major *SQUEE* factor! To have not only the publisher notice your review but the AUTHOR too? That's just. . .wow. :D Congratulations, Amelia! You deserve it, darlin'!

Also, I'm happy to say that I *did* pre-order my copy of PARANORMALCY in July, so no worries there! :)
