Spring Break Reading Challenge - Activity #2

So, I'm signing up a day late to the Spring Break Reading Challenge, but that's okay because it runs from Friday, March 12 to Sunday, March 21. Karin from The Book Jacket is the lovely gal hosting this challenge. My break is actually the week after, but I thought I'd join in on the fun anyhow. :)

Each day boasts an Activity and a chance to win a Prize! Today's Activity is a Scavenger Hunt - woo! Here are the three things I need to find:

1 - Using keywords related to your interests, find a blog that is new to you.  Be sure to give us the Blog Title, Link, and Short Description of the Blog.
I took the lazy way out on this one and went to Kidlitosphere Central's Member List to find a new kidlit blog to add to my ever-growing feed reader. I chose:

"picture books from a (somewhat) grown-up perspective"
2 - A blog belonging to an author from a book in your To Be Read pile (just a random one if you don't have a To-Be-Read pile).
Gone is next on my to-read list. :)

3 - A book releasing THIS MONTH you want to read.

The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Waiting for my library to buy this one!

Hope you'll join the Spring Break Reading Challenge too!

Excellent. I enjoyed DEAD-TOSSED WAVES. GONE I was a little disappointed in. Thanks for participating.

All three look like interesting treasures. I especially like the cover on Dead-Tossed Waves! Happy early Spring Break!

Hello Miss Natalie! Per my goals that I set in Activity #1, I am here to say hello! I see that you want to read "Gone" by Lisa McMann. Have you already read the first 2 in the series? I am just now breaking into the Young Adult genre and recently won an autographed copy of Gone via Linda Gerber's blog and waiting for it to arrive. I'm curious, do you think I should purchase the previous 2 first, or does Lisa write in a style that I could jump right into Gone? (I told myself I wouldn't purchase any books in March, to force myself to read some of what I already own, so if I need to purchase the first 2, then it'll have to wait till April. LOL!)
