Everyone's talking about the meaning of this very cute T-shirt.
For those of you who don't know, R.U.H? means Are You Haunted?, which does allusion to Jessica Verday's The Hollow.
What I don't know is the meaning of that 2 over the H. Hmmm.

5. Kristi @ The Story Siren has posted a very funny vlog on her page, full of mistakes when trying to record a vlog for her IMM feature.

And now for the best: Melissa Marr (Wicked Lovely), Alyson Noel (The Immortals series) and Kelley Armstrong (The Summoning) just might be the most incredible chicks ever. Not only do they represent three of the most popular teen authors, not only are they all New York Times Bestsellers, they’re all going on tour. Together.(!)

Got goose bumps yet? It gets so, so much better. In September of 2010, these three ladies are hitting the book tour circuit and eight different cities, and they’re bringing some of their friends. They call it the Smart Chicks Kick It tour, and here are just a few of the brilliant minds joining them: Rachel Vincent (The Morganville Vampires, Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles, Tithe), Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments) and so many more. For the constantly growing list, and to make a desperate plea to have the ladies hit your town, check out their Facebook page:

I sooo wish I could be there!! Arghhhhhhhhh! Why do I live so far from these amazing people/events/book stores, signing, etc., etc.?

What have you been doing this week?
Are you going to enter these giveaways, cause you'd be a fool if you didn't!
