The Monday Mix (30)

The Monday Mix basically gives me the opportunity to share with all of you the links I loved online from weeks past. This includes everything from great reviews, articles about writing, inspiring posts and perhaps other things too. I've always valued the opportunity to share the great things I've read or seen, and this is my way to share the love with all the bloggers, authors + pubs out there!

I am seriously feeling you, Spring. And I mean literally, as my allergies have taken flight over the past two weeks. It's been non-stop sneezing and sniffles and itchy eyes in my world, but even with these handicaps, I've been living life (the good life, with grilling and musicals and sunshine) and still going to work. Hopefully, the pollen count dies down soon so that I can get over these allergies and move on with my life!

Apart from that, I just realized that I hit a cool set of milestones related to The Monday Mix. This is my 30th post, which means I've written enough of them to cover a whole month. And it's also been roughly a year and two weeks or so since I first started it! How cool is that? I do so enjoy it, and I hope you guys do too.

My best friend and cousin Bianca arrived nearly two weeks ago, and I've kind of been playing tourist with her as she experiences New York. We've watched a few shows and done some fun things and eaten really good food, and it's been fabulous! I'm going to be sad about her leaving soon.

But, but, but, never fear - it's also BEA week! I'm only going in for two days at the office (thanks to the Monday off!) I'm jumping right into the fray with the Teen Author Carnival on Wednesday, and then BEA will finally be here. Hopefully, I'll see many of you, my friends at various points during the week! Don't forget -- everyone is invited to attend the BEA Book Blogger Picnic & BEA Book Blogger Meet and Drink!


Don't forget to check out my Tumblr (where I post photos and cover reveals and other fun things), and my sister's blog Snaps for Mel (where she recounts all our adventures)! I also have a Facebook page, where I post random links. You can also subscribe to my Youtube channelmy sister's YouTube channel and the Lit Ladies YouTube channel!

I hope you enjoy reading these posts as much as I did! Now it's YOUR turn - are there any posts (on your blog or other blogs) from last week that I missed out on? Please feel free to share links in the comments and I'll try to check them out.


  1. Yay for the 30th edition! I love these posts, as I miss A LOT during the week days, and it definitely helps people like me catch up. I can't wait to go through some of these links. I mean, knife throwing?! That's DEFINITELY one thing I will have to check out. :)

    Thanks for sharing my Raven Cycle post, Alexa. Have fun at BEA! I'm so excited for you all. I wish I could jump on a plane and be there. ;)

  2. Thank you, Alexa, for mentioning my blog in your Monday Mix post <3!! I hope you have the best time attending all of the BEA festivities this week. Imagine I am there in spirit! hehe


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
