Lookie Mama, I Won a Book! (Plus a Few Multi-Flavoured Ramblings)

Hi my lovelies...

It's been three days and I still haven't recovered. After two years and eight months of blogging (and participating in giveaways), I FINALLY WON A BOOK. (Excuse my caps...not bragging...just broadcasting emotions). Not a physical copy, since I'm in Italy and they rarely get here (if ever)...but

I. WON. A. FRIGGIN'. BOOK.

PDF. Whatever. It's a BOOK, my darlings.

Blog Plans (Open for Summer!)

Hi my darlings!
Remember my latest post about the difficulties to juggle real life and blogging, BUT wanting to go on and actually spice up things here a little?
Well, this came up timely. In her May 2015 Wrap-Up post, Tessa from Crazy for YA mentioned the upcoming Summer Blogger Promo Tour by The Book Bratz. This is kind of a blog hop, but much more awesome and helpful than that. Because everyone who signed up (a total of 56 bloggers!) will be in the spotlight for 8 Sundays over the summer (in July and August) on 8 of his fellow participants' blogs, and will have the distint pleasure to meet new friends in the process! (Sign-ups are closed now, but if you're curious about the ins and outs of this event, just click on the SBPT link above).
Now, you know I'm not a huge fan of memes, but I like to take part in shorter (and often more meaningful) events. Besides, I was actually seeking out an opportunity like this right now! Last year I went M.I.A. for, well, pretty much the whole summer - in the very months that this tour is taking place. All the more reason for participating in it (well, as a matter of fact, the tour was first launched in 2014, but I didn't know at the time). This blog needs a shake up!

Thanks to Giphy!

I don't know how many posts/reviews I'll be able to squeeze in between my SBPT schedule, because well, see my latest post. But I'll try my best. Anyhow, I'll introduce you to a (maybe new to you?) different blogger every Sunday, and I hope it will be entertaining enough :).

Big wave to all the Summer Blogger Promo Tour participants! I'm sure we'll have fun together this summer! (Don't forget you sunglasses and sunscreen LOL).
