May Recap, June Schedule

May Recap:

I can't believe how much my blog has grown since November (which is when I first made it). I hardly posted at all before 2012 ended, and for the first few months of 2013, I neglected keeping it updated too. It really wasn't until May that I actually started using it more, posting reviews and book releases, doing cover reveals. I have 32 friends on GFC now! And I've got 26 on Bloglovin! So flipping cool! Y'all deserve a big thank you for checking out The Fox's Hole and giving me a chance. :) 

I think you guys deserve a Zac Efron gif, too. :P

This blog was made for something to pass the time, something for me to use so I could write. I didn't have any expectations about it, didn't even think about using it to help promote authors. 

I'm hoping to do more for it, start doing blog tours and cover reveals. I've got NetGalley now, where I can do more reviews of books, even some that haven't released yet. I probably should stay away from the library until I'm caught up on NetGalley reads, as I have A LOT to do feedback for. 

I'm on my very first street team, too! I'm a Relentless Reader (Cassia Leo's street team name). I'm having loads of fun talking about her books and spreading the word whenever there's a sale, and just having book talk with other readers who love her books too! I still need to decide which team I'm on: Chris, or Adam. But I can't yet because I haven't read Pieces of You. I need to learn more about them before I make a choice. :P 

Pretty much all I've been doing this May is reading, writing, and going to my little brother's baseball games. I got dinner with my college friends today, and tomorrow I plan on doing job applications. So tonight I'm just going to read The Human (The Eden Trilogy, #2) by Keary Taylor. I received an eARC of the book, and I cannot wait to read it! :)

June Schedule:

Okay, everyone! Looks like I'm going to be busy this month (well, as busy as I ever am).

I've got a couple of cover reveals I'm signed up for: Charmed (Death Escorts, #2) by Cambria Hebert, for sure. I'm going to finish up Recalled (Death Escorts, #1) soon. I really like it so far. :) Honestly, there was another one I'm signed up for but I cannot for the life of me remember what book it's for. I feel like a terrible person now. Me and my wishy-washy memory... *sigh

I also signed up to be part of the Branded (A Sinners Series, #1) blog tour starting June 28th. I don't know for sure if I'm on the list, but I hope so! I cannot wait for this debut novel from Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki! It sounds friggin' amazing. In July, I might be part of the Connected (Connections #1) blog tour. I can't wait to read Torn, because Connected left on a horrible cliffhanger! I also signed up for the Blurred (Kiss of Death, #2) tour. I freaking love this series. But these tours are not set in stone, as I sign up but haven't received any emails. I'm not sure if that's normal and they won't send an email until closer to the date, or because they already have enough bloggers. *fingers crossed*

This will be me when I find out: 
Okay, so maybe not exactly. :P I just felt like using a Fresh Prince gif. But I will dance and freak out if the news is positive! 

Oh, June releases I'm looking forward to: 
  1. Branded (A Sinners Series, #1). June 28th.
  2. The Human (The Eden Trilogy, #2). June 18th.
Okay, so I guess there are only two releases I'm looking forward. Huh, I could have sworn there was more. Most of the books I'm waiting on are releasing in July, though. That's a problem. Ugh, I have to wait even longer. Not cool. 

Also, next weekend is the birthday bash! Not book news, I know. But country music is my obsession and I'm so excited to go see some of my favorite singers perform live! And hang out with friends! :) I've also got a ton of open houses to go to for my cousins. I can't believe I've got five of them graduating this year. *sniff sniff* I'm probably going to cry at each one of their open houses. I'm giving them fair warning.

Phew! I think that's everything. I might have only made this post just so I'd have an excuse to use gifs. :P Don't judge me. I love them. 

I hope everyone had a fantastic May! Looking forward to the June posts now. :) 

P.S. I plan on changing my blog name soon. I want something to do with books. The Fox's Hole is more personal to me, and now that my blog has turned into a book blog, I want something different. Something new. Something exciting. I probably won't change it for awhile, as I want this to be the last name change I do. I want it to be perfect. Just thought I'd let everyone know, in case they see a blog name and can't remember ever following it. :)

Comments always make me smile. :) Seriously. Even if you comment on the post weeks or months later, it makes my day! So don't hesitate to leave your thoughts even if it's been a long time since the post was published. I'll try to reply to you, especially if you ask a question, but sometimes life happens. But I do read and appreciate every single one of them because I know how hard it can be to find the time or energy to comment. So a heartfelt THANK YOU for brightening my day when you do. <3
