It's here!
Well, almost!

I've signed up for the Vamps vs. Zombies giveaway hop, hosted by My Shelf Confessions

Go here if you want to sign up too. All the information can be found on that page.

There will be giveaways, guest posts, challenges- all zombie and vampire related!
And if you have ever read my blog or been unfortunate enough to meet my sorry ass in person, then you know what a soft spot I have in my heart for vampires. (And a real terror of zombies!)

I'm going to do a giveaway during this time too! And it will be zombie or vampire related.
No, crazy peeps. I can't tell you what it is yet. Jeez. It's only July!

Anyway, watch out because I will be reading a bunch of zombie and vampire books during August too!

Happy Reading!
