Good morning! 😀
Sun shining… mood hitting level awesome…. what could be going on?
OH – many things! For one, today releases Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. I reviewed this a few weeks back with the appropriate level of SSQQQUUEEESSSS so you know…. check it out. 😀 (Amazon rating here)
And check this out…. I am so not a fan of book trailers but this is something incredible…
I had pre ordered Forever back in January right after I finished Linger. When I received the ARC at BEA this year, I still wanted the hard cover that I had pre ordered so that book is due here in the next couple of days. Hmmm…. what to do with the ARC? (*see bottom of this post)
Tonight is our book club Queen Event which is basically a potluck event where we all dress up in formal wear and give little speeches of why we should be the Queen. Why do we do this? It came out of a book we read years ago called Same Sweet Girls by Cassandra King. It is just a fun crazy thing we do every July and it is a lot of crazy fun!
Here is a glimpse into last years 2010 event:
and here is 2009 before…
I bought my dress for tonight on clearance… I have a closet full now of these fun dresses… (one of which you may have seen dive into the lake for the polar plunge in May). 😛
I love this event because we all agreed to do it… I wasn’t sure they would, but yes, for the past 5 years we have done this and had so much fun seeing what everyone came up with for their speech… some sing, some rhyme… some read off cards like a politician. It is all in fun and we do have fun! 😀
Pictures and results will be up tomorrow 😀
**Leave a comment today on this post and I will choose one random winner to receive my ARC copy of Forever which I will send out to them this week.
