If you’re reading this title, then you are probably thinking “uhm.. who the heck is Shelly?!?!” Well to answer your question, Shelly is the most awesome person ever!! OK you got me, that’s not who I am. I am OFFICIALLY the new co-blogger at Read. Sleep. Repeat!

And yes I know it’s weird to be writing my own welcome post but THAT’S HOW WE ROLL! Shall I talk about myself some more?

I will start with some fun things to know about me and any questions you have can be addressed in the comments! Hi everyone, I’m Shelly and it’s nice to meet all of you! I am an optimist and proud Hufflepuff (I hereby decree that all Hufflepuff jokes end here!) and I’m a proud Canadian (no igloo jokes either please). I am super loyal and probably too excited to properly write about myself!I am super productive (every post I write is ahead of schedule) and I fangirl about really good YA. I will read all contemporary but I never love all of it. I am sometimes the black sheep but I own that badge with pride! And because I’m sure you all want to know what I look like, here’s a picture of me to the left!

Octavia and I met through Twitter (as one does) and we’ve been friends ever since! We’ve always debated “to co-blog or not to co-blog” when one day, Octavia tweeted it again and it hit me, WHY DON’T WE BECOME CO-BLOGGERS? To most people, blogging with someone you met on the internet after knowing each other for a few months is crazy but luckily Octavia was crazy enough to accept! We’ve been attempting to do this co-blogging thing for a while now and it’s just SO FUN! It takes off a lot of pressure from both of us and it makes blogging much more fun! Like Octavia always says to me, we are in a partnership now and I’m enjoying it! I’m a planner and I have a fear of procrastination while Octavia is the Queen of Procrastination so I think this will work out nicely.

Thanks for letting me introduce myself and give my little spiel. To celebrate, I’m giving away a SIGNED copy of Cress by Marissa Meyer with a small amount of swag (a.k.a one button and a postcard from the event)! I have made it mandatory that only followers of Read,Sleep,Repeat can enter because I want this to be for all the new followers that I get to meet!

1. No cheating/faking entries. You must show VALID proof of entry. All invalid/faked entries will be deleted.
2. Giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents 13 years of age or older with parent consent (if necessary).
3. Read,Sleep,Repeat is not responsible for any damage that happens to the book during shipping.
4. The winner must respond back within 48 hours or another entrant will be picked as a winner.

  1. Woot. This is fantastic, you guys! There’ll be Read. Sleep. Repeat. x 2 now.

    I read a lot of contemporary, too! It’s my go-to genre even if, like you, I don’t love all of it (I’m looking at you, My Life Next Door).

    Anyway, looking forward to all the awesomeness! Congrats, guys. =D

  2. Congrats on your new co-blogging status!!! Sounds like so much fun to be blogging with a friend πŸ™‚
    I have only read Cinder and absolutely loved it – I have Scarlet too, need to read it soon! I am mostly looking forward to Cress – Rapunzel is my favorite story!
    Thanks for the giveaway! Enjoy blogging together!!!

  3. Welcome Shelly!! I’m excited to see more posts from you and I hope you enjoy co-blogging! To answer your giveaway question, I haven’t read Cress yet because I’ve yet to break down and buy. (Trust me its not easy saying no to books). I’m incredibly excited to continue the series and see what Marissa has in store for us.

  8. Now for the welcome. I am a proud Ravenclaw, but I have some great Hufflepuff friends, so you won’t hear any jokes from me (unless they are about cookies). My father’s family is from Canada, five generations back, so I won’t be telling Canadian jokes, either. LOL!! I’m glad you wear your black sheep badge proudly, so do I!! I love Octavia’s reviews for that reason, too. I think we should start a Black Sheep group and have a button for our blogs! Welcome!!

  9. I haven’t read Cress yet, but I’m excited to read it! I love The Lunar Chronicles! Thank you so much for this amazing giveaway! πŸ™‚
