Thanks for all your visits during my Birthday Bash where we discussed favorite firsts with some amazing authors and bloggers! I hope you all had a good visit - there was some lively discussion about Black Jewels Trilogy (which I need to start reading!), a little mutual shuddering at the thought of baby powder smelling Lessers, and some concern about being disillusioned by hypochondriacs (double shudder!). It seems like many of us secretly or not so secretly got started reading paranormals by picking up that sparkly vampire novel known as Twilight and like a gateway drug it lead us to the dark side of fiction. While other ones of us started out our addiction as gamer-girls and readers of fan fiction. Some of us seek revenge through recommending depressing books while others lament the dangers of falling in love. And lastly we learned that the ultimate villian of them all is - Eve.
I am now the owner of a shinny new ipad and already got this great cover from Etsy (bertie's closet) so thank you to my hubby for such an awesome birthday gift! If you guys have any recommendations for apps it would be much appreciated!
Now onto updates for the Favorite Firsts Birthday Bash - it's still going on till July 5th and as promised if I get 50 more followers during the bash a new winner is added - now there are 2 winners - 1st place gets 3 books and 2nd place gets 1 book. And wait there's more (I feel like a infomerical) the winners will get to chose from both the favorite firsts and my birthday bash list (don't worry if you already picked your books earlier - I will give you a chance to change your picks if you win before I order them). Thanks for all those who have entered so far and tweeted about the contest - you are awesome!
