Winners of YA & MG Book Packs!

Thanks to everyone who entered this contest! September is almost over, but I still have a lot of books to giveaway. I'm debating if I should give them away into October or save them for special holidays/event giveaways. Also, I apologize for not getting the L.A. Summer review up before the contest ended. You can read it here
