Unfortunately I haven't been able to be too active in the last couple of weeks due to constant problems in real life: first I had exams, then due to the heavy storms there was flooding, then again due to the strong wind no internet for almost a week, then my laptop crashed and I still haven't gotten it back from the computer shop. grr :-/
But at least now it starts to feel like summer: the sun is shining brightly and it's 30 Celsius, would be nice to go to the beach and not have to work in the city.

We had our first BBA book club discussion! We read and discussed A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix, the 1st book in the Maker's Song series.
June saw the birth of one of my original feature ideas: Spotlight on Thrillers was introduced and was quite a success with two thriller authors visiting Ex Libris, guest posts and discussions about great thrillers and why we love them and of course peppered with quite a few giveaways!
/July will be about Paranormal Romance so keep your eyes open, just saying ;-)/
This month was full of giveaways too, first there was the celebratory giveaway for Ex Libris passing 222 Followers, then there were many smaller giveaways during the Spotlight on Thrillers Week.
