Readers: February 27th: Apologies for the scattered posting that's about to come during the next week or so. University has just started and I have a lot of work to do to get on top of things (and ahead!). Thanks for your patience, as always.

Publishers: I promise I'm not abandoning the lovely review copies you've sent!
I'm getting through them and the reviews will come eventually!

Valentine's Event: Wrap Up Post & WINNERS!!


So, a belated wrap-up, but we wanted to wait until we'd drawn all the winners so we could include everything in the one post. This may be long, but please bear with us :)

First off - what a month!! We were hoping to pull it off, but wow... you guys made February such a huge success! Every single one of you who read, commented or advertised are so freaking amazing. We loved the enthusiasm you showed in the comments. Whether it was about your favourite book boys or squeeing over a super hot teaser :) We hope you discovered some new reads along the way or else enjoyed that extra something from your favourite authors!

Now, this event truly wouldn't have been possible without Brodie. She was absolutely AMAZING and did so much brilliant work when I wasn't able to. She stayed up until 3am for us to get things done and put up with me when I was being annoying and didn't make a lick of sense! If you read her blog (OF COURSE YOU DO) you'll already know that she is one of the sweetest people on the planet. SO I LOVE YOU MORE, BRODIE. *sticks out tongue* Thanks so much for doing this with me <3 I will gladly bestow you with pictures of Neal Caffrey whenever you want. (Wait, what?)

To every author (the list is HUGE), who contributed something to this event, whether a guest post, teasers, exclusive scenes, interviews or prizes, words cannot describe how much we appreciate the time and energy you invested! We had so much fun squeeing over your posts and we know our readers did too!

To the publishers: Scholastic UK, Harper Collins AUS, Hardie Grant Egmont, Hachette AUS, Bloomsbury AUS, Pan Macmillan AUS, Harlequin AUS, Macmillan US, Random House AUS, HarperCollins US, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Little Brown Young Readers, Hodder Children's UK - you are all so incredible! We appreciate everything you do for us bloggers/readers and we cannot thank you enough for your donations!
Voting Results

Alright, we know you're all screaming at us to get on with the winners already! But firstly, winners of a different kind. Curious who won the Best Boyfriend Battle and Love Triangle Debates? Dun dun dun daaa..... let's introduce our newest champions!

Best Boyfriend Battle

Man, this was INTENSE. The final showdown involved three very different, but equally swoonworthy guys. Logan from the Shade series, Alex from Hunting Lila and Sam from Shiver. Honestly though, it was more of a face-off between Logan and Alex. The loyalty and dedication from their fans blew us away. But only one could triumph and Team Keeley and Team Kilt from the Shade trilogy banded together to put all their support behind Logan in an impressive finale!

Winner: Logan Keeley from Shade
_________

Love Triangle Debates
You all voted fiercely for your favourite guy in each love triangle! So many swoony guys, but only one could survive each battle! Are you surprised by the results? Some were insanely close, while in others there was a clear favourite! Big thanks to all the amazing writers who defended each guy! <3
