Hello YABCers. Happy March! I have some bad news and some good news for you. 

The Good News: I am now a published author! My debut The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare releases this week on March 4th from Strange Chemistry. Woo hoo! 

The Bad News: Now that I have a book out, that means I have deadlines and Book 2 drafting and promo responsibilites and guest posts to write and and and and and.... There's so much to do that I can't seem to find time to film my monthly YABC Mailbox videos. *sad face* 

I have truly enjoyed chair dancing and being truly gooftastic for you all over the past three years. These videos have been a highlight of mine, and I will really miss doing them.

However, this doesn't mean I won't be sharing the YABC Mailbox with you each month. I'll just be doing it in a different (less time-consuming) format.

I'll be showcasing the new titles we received for review right here on the blog! And don't worry, I will still offer a giveaway at the end as well. So you'll still have a chance to get your hands on a book from the Prize Shelf.

Ready to see what Santa brought us the past few weeks? 

Let's get to the books!

 

You'll be happy to know I didn't get one paper cut while opening these happy packages.

That's a first for me!

Lookie at my book up there on the top right of the last pic! This is a dream come true, folks. Always wanted to add my own book to the YABCmailbox haul. *flails*

    I'm looking forward to 'Into the Still Blue' by Veronica Rossi. She's one of my favorite authors and this series is also one of my favorites. I like recommending this series if you liked "The girl of Fire and Thorn' by Rae Carson and i would recommend it to those who read my comment! ;)
