Hi Frosties! Guess what? This Side of the Grave is being released in TWO WEEKS! So to celebrate its release Reading Between the Wines is hosting a Countdown to This Side of the Grave event!

What is Countdown to This Side of the Grave you ask?
Well, it is a two-week event that starts today and will run until the release date of TsotG on February 22nd.

Each day we will have fun Night Huntress themed posts to get you even more psyched for the release. We also have some fabulous bloggers and fellow Night Huntress fans joining us for guest posts and reviews. I even made a nifty little button ^ if you want to spread the word or the banner on the side bar >, it would be much appreciated!
