Contest Craze: Mini Challenge Collections-CLOSED

Today's Mini Challenge is all about Collections!

You know what I'm talking about, right? It's those important items that mean a lot to us that we can't help collecting. 

When I was a teenager I collected Beanie Babies. I had a ton! I also collected Rugrats and Care Bears. HEHE.

For a while I collected Twilight merchandise, I still do every once in a while. BUT, the thing that I have a habit of picking up every time I see something is, Hello Kitty! I have tons of Hello Kitty stuff. I even have a Hello Kitty hair dryer and a Hello Kitty toaster. I'm a little obsessed with Hello Kitty.

Challenge: Write up a blog post telling us all about your collection. What do you collect? Why do you collect it? Feel free to post pictures of your collection. Be creative.

Don't forget to link your blog post!!!

Waiting On Wednesday (105)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WOW spotlights forthcoming titles that we absolutely can't wait to read.

Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald

Summary: Seventeen-year-old Sadie is in love: epic, heartfelt, and utterly one-sided. The object of her obsession — ahem, affection — is her best friend,Garrett Delaney, who has been oblivious to Sadie’s feelings ever since he sauntered into her life and wowed her with his passion for Proust (not to mention his deep blue eyes). 

For two long, painful years, Sadie has been Garrett’s constant companion, sharing his taste in everything from tragic Russian literature to art films to ’80s indie rock — all to no avail. But when Garrett leaves for a summer literary retreat, Sadie is sure that the absence will make his heart grow fonder — until he calls to say he’s fallen in love. With some other girl! A heartbroken Sadie realizes that she’s finally had enough. It’s time for a total Garrett detox!

Aided by a barista job, an eclectic crew of new friends (including the hunky chef, Josh), and a customized self-help guide, Sadie embarks on a summer of personal reinvention full of laughter, mortifying meltdowns, and a double shot of love.

Why I Want It: Girl in love with her best friend and he hardly notices? Love that story line! Think this will be pretty cute and fun!

Mini Challenge At A Thousand Little Pages

Long weekend, huh? It's been rainy and gloomy here.

Today's Mini Challenge is hosted by A Thousand Little Pages. 

Want to know a little bit about A Thousand Pages?

Taken Directly from her blog. 
Born and grown* in Taiwan (a tiny country-island off the coast of China), I moved around a lot as a child and finally ended up in the US 5 years ago.   I find solace in reading, in immersing myself in fictional worlds, as cheesy as that sounds. Reviewing is simply a way for me to express my thoughts after finishing a novel.

Contest Craze: Mini Challenge- Who Should Be A Couple?-CLOSED

Today's Mini Challenge is hosted by me! 

Challenge: Write up a blog post telling us who should be a couple but are NOT a couple. This can include tv, movie, music videos, or book couples.  In a separate paragraph, tell us why you think they should get together.  They can be characters from different shows or the same show.  Be creative. Who would go well together? These are fictional characters, not the real actors. 

Make sure you tell us which show you are going off of (if it's a show and your behind a season, tell us). If its two different shows, and two different characters, tell us. Details please! If it's a book, make sure you tell us what book it is from in your blog post.  This is so people know not to ruin it by telling you spoilers from the next book or season! LOL

My Example:
Damon and Elena from The Vampire Diaries (I'm on season 3). 

Why I Want them together: This is one of those couples you want to hook up but deep in your heart you know they shouldn't because she's already with a guy you like. I love Stefan. I loved the actor before Vampire Diaries so its hard for me to want her to be with Damon but part of me does. Both guys are so different, yet she has chemistry with them both. I mean, who else laughed their butts off at the beginning of the premiere when Damon and Elena first saw each other? Me Me Me! Who noticed Damon wiggling his eyebrows? But who else cried at the end during that phone call and the look on Stefan's face? Yep, guilty of that too. 

I think maybe I just need to see a real passionate kiss between Damon and Elena so I can let it rest and focus on Stefan. And, I don't mean a peck or kissing the wrong girl either.  A real kiss. 

Vampire Diaries is exempt from this challenge, since I used it as the example! 

Don't forget to link your blog post! 

Prize: Mystery Prize Pack of books

Unraveling Isobel by Eileen Cook

Summary:  Isobel’s life is falling apart. Her mom just married some guy she met on the internet only three months before, and is moving them to his sprawling, gothic mansion off the coast of nowhere. Goodbye, best friend. Goodbye, social life. Hello, icky new stepfather, crunchy granola town, and unbelievably good-looking, officially off-limits stepbrother.

But on her first night in her new home, Isobel starts to fear that it isn’t only her life that’s unraveling—her sanity might be giving way too. Because either Isobel is losing her mind, just like her artist father did before her, or she’s seeing ghosts. Either way, Isobel’s fast on her way to being the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons. 

Why I Want It: This sounds like a book for me! I love these contemporary's! And the good looking stepbrother, might be interesting to say the least!
