Hello, Cuddlebuggery Readers! I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving, filled with turkey or tofurkey or something else vegan or gluten free or organic or whatever ever fills your belly with that warm, pleasantly full feeling. I am even now drowsy from my turkey dinner, and it’s been like four days. :) The news is short and sweet this week. No controversies, perhaps because everyone was busy celebrating with their families.Read More »

Book Blogger Trick or Treat!
Yeah, so, I hope I got this right, cause I actually can’t find my instruction email telling me what to do. Clearly I am the best blogging friend ever.
Kara and Lyn’s faces right now.
So this is a great Halloween event that Kara and Lyn organized. I’m to tell you my favourite candy (I think). Then you precious, amazing people, get a chance to win stuff over on Kara and Lyn’s blog. Spooky books and all. I don’t know. I’m Australian. We aren’t historically very good at Halloween but I’m enthusiastic to try!
But I think just telling you my favourite candy is too easy! So I’m going to give you a rhyme and in order to figure out my favourite candy, you need to deduce it from my highly sophisticated and subtle clues. Ready? Here we go:
I’m round with hazelnuts sprinkled over my chocolate, a lot like a Ferrero Rocher,
My name means Ferrero Rock.Read More »

Welcome to Hot New Titles with new releases including Indelible, Earthbound, and All Our Pretty Songs.

Rowling and the one we’ve all been waiting for: Cress by Marissa Meyer. Drooling over books is totally acceptable behavior, right?

I’m going to state, flat out, that my gut reaction has always been to allow teenagers the opportunity to read what they want, and to decide for themselves what media is appropriate for them or not. I don’t imagine I know what’s best for teenagers. Being a media creator on the other hand, blurs the line a little. Sure, it’s one thing to wave a hand and say, “Of course! Let them read their cake… er, smut. Whatever.”
It’s a totally different thing to be the one providing it. I might not care if teens drink, do drugs or have sex – but I ain’t assisting in any of it! Often on this blog, we like to blatantly ignore lines. Decency, politeness, grammar and sense. But I was writing a post the other day discussing the worst promotional items to pair with young adult books. I won’t go into details, but it got a little explicit.
Sometimes I see a book tweeted about, or mentioned somewhere, and on the spur of the moment I’ll buy it. Randomly, I’ll neglect my careful pile of TBR ARCs that I’m supposed to be reading, deviate from my schedule and try something completely left wing. Sometimes this turns out really great. Sometimes it doesn’t.
This was one of those times where it doesn’t. Ever been in a dream that you kind of liked, though couldn’t help but notice that it made absolutely no sense? If you don’t, ReVamped is a great way to experience the sensation for yourself. A young, president’s daughter is off on her first assignment! To unite a ragtag group of weirdo vamps and turn them into a team! For reasons…
Unfortunately, things go awry when mysterious forces work to attempt to kidnap her! For reasons…
Luckily, there is a super hot guy who is mysterious, sexy, there to protect her and somehow knows something about her!
