Morning Meanderings… SCHOLASTIC!!!!
Good morning and HAPPY FRIDAY! Rainy and wet here today and that is putting a damper on my garage sale plans… but waiting for a call from my friend to see if we are a go or a pass…. in the meantime, I am here, minus the coffee cup (day 10 of the cleanse), but hanging in there.
So…. a few days ago when Kathy at Bermuda Onion posted about receiving her books from Scholastic I was all “YAY!!!! They are coming!!!” But secretly I was also like “Where are mine? Are they coming?” LOL Then my hubby brought up my box from the shop (sometimes UPS delivers there…. annoying) and I was so excited!
Why the excitement… I can not put justice to what an experience it was to be at the Scholastic event while in New York! (Thank you Alison for connecting me!). Not only were the authors wonderful and friendly , but when they all read from each others books and acted out chapters, seriously… it was one of the highlights of my New York experience this year.
We were given a sheet of paper to check off the books that we would like sent to us from the authors who were there that evening and they all were so fantastic that it was hard to choose, but I did pick James Dashner new book (he is so funny how could I pass?), Eliot Schrefer (can not wait to read this one!), Raina Telegemeier ( they acted this one out – funny), Donna Cooner (this looks so good!) and Maggie Stiefvater (I want to read everything she writes!)
And if you know me, you know I am not a big fan of book trailers…. I really am not, but Maggie Stiefvater is a big exception. This woman is so talented…. check out her book trailer for The Raven Boys… seriously do not pass this up, she makes her trailers herself.
Just got the word, garage sales are on…. got to run! Have a great day, I will be back later with a review that I am SOOOOO EXCITED about!
