…And the results are in! 

Finally in, I should say because WOW that was a lot of votes to count!!! As you can see from the picture at left, the counting volunteers were so exhausted they kept falling asleep right on top of their laptops! A round of applause goes out to our wonderful Book Lovers Inc readers for ‘Rocking the Vote!’ The response to my seemingly innocent little poll was mind-blowing. Rest assured your voices have been heard. The votes were counted and re-counted, I live in Florida and as anyone in our US readership will tell you that’s how we do it down here. =) *ahem*  Not only have your votes been tallied but after reading everyone’s comments debating whether or not the Study Trilogy is really a YA series or not, I’ve done some further …

All YA Love: The Accidental YA Reader + Giveaway

 I read all different kinds of books, every type, every theme, every style, every genre; if it’s a good book I will read it. That is unless it is a YA Book. In that case the type, theme, style and genre still don’t matter; I’m not going to read it. The last time I read a YA book I was about 12 years old. At least that is what I thought until about a week ago, when I discovered that statement wasn’t quite so true anymore.

(Yes, for those of  you keeping score that does mean I have not read the Twilight Series.) 

When I was working I sat at a little table outside and read during my lunch break everyday. One morning I was running late and didn’t have any unread books on my e-reader. So, I jumped onto Barnes& to download one real …

Interview: Debut Author Skyler White & a Giveaway!

Book Lovers Inc: What is your favorite color and what do you think it says about you or how does it represent you?

Skyler White: I don’t really have a favorite color. Green, probably. Or black. I imagine what that says about me is that I’m somewhat non-committal. Or that I like spring and growth. Or winter and death. 😉

BLI: What is your favorite type of music?

SW: Gak, I’m going to be non-committal throughout, looks like. I like a lot of different kinds of music, depending on my mood. I love the sound of the cello, but I also love the terrible music I grew up with in the 80’s. I’m an old-school U2 fan, but I’m loving Lady Gaga right now.

BLI: Many authors talk about the music they listen …
