Well, we have reached the end of Young Love Week. I have to say it was fabulous fun on my end and I hope that you all enjoyed it as well.  We read so many great books and had some lovely guest posts. And I included my own personal young love story for anyone who is interested.  Not to mention our out of this world giveaways!  So now that things have come to a close, here is a wrap up of the week just in case you missed anything.


First off, don’t forget, there is still time to enter the enormous giveaway! We have about 35 prizes from a bunch of fabulous authors and publishers. The contest will stay open until tonight at 11:59 pm EST.  Don’t miss out on this massive haul of goodies!  I will start contacting winners tomorrow, but I expect it will take a couple of weeks at least to give them all out (especially as I will be at GRL next week!).


We have had a ton of reviews this week of stories featuring young love. In case you missed any, here is a recap:
