Randomosity on Friday

Short and quite random this week because it's Thursday as I type this and I have things that need buying and other things that need packing.

1. I'm going to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate my cousin's 21st birthday. This, in effect, makes me feel old. The last time I was in Vegas, it was for my BFF Gennia's 21st. Good times. Anyone have suggestions on what I should (and shouldn't?) do?

2. Wednesday, I received a lovely surprise in the mail - the Blue is for Nightmares series that I won from the lovely Tere! YAY, IT'S HERE! And it's so pretty and shiny! LOOK AT IT!!! (Yes, that is also my ARC of Sapphique acquired elsewhere, which I am busily tearing through. It is also very shiny.)

Thanks so much, Tere! Also, loved the Urban Outfitters bag wrapping. Good idea!

3. The talented Lady Glam is celebrating the release of her novella Cinders with THIS cool giveaway! Lots of stuff is up for grabs including an Amazon gift card and signed copies of the novella. Go check it out!

4. The sister and I came up with a BRILLIANT idea for improving your health (?) with the help of The Hunger Games and reading in general. BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL NEXT WEEK for my post about it. (We're trying to come up with a snappy name for it.) No, it does not actually involve hunger - well, unless you count the HUNGER to SUCCEED!!! Ahem. For the record, the sister is loving the books. This is a big deal because she is NOT a reader (and as she puts it, has the attention span of an adolescent boy - if I ever write MG, I'm forcing her to be my beta reader), so anything she raves about gets extra weight. I know, I know. I need to read the Hunger Games.

5. I finished reading Demon's Covenant and Lord Sunday this past week and a half. I've picked up where I left off in Sapphique. I think maybe I need a few days break from reading. I've been finishing and starting books without pause lately, and I think I need to figuratively catch my breath. Demon's Covenant, by the way, is so good. Better than the first.

Happy end of July everyone! And a special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Icy Roses!

YAY! LOL, yeah, I like to recycle. ;)

Hope you enjoy them. The little "spellbook" that comes with the set is really neat, I think.

Icy Roses said...

BAHHH I have to read The Hunger Games too. I am so late on this bandwagon. But I've been convincing myself that it's because I hate waiting for sequels so it's better if I wait until they're all out and read them in one fell swoop. Which will be sooooon, I think. Mockingjay is the last, I believe?
