I learned one very very very important thing while participating in the #loveathon this weekend and it shocked the heck out of me. What you may ask? There is a ridiculous amount of people that haven’t read Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins and that just can’t happen. I mean I’m not sure if you noticed or not, but I’m pretty much obsessed with that book so um yeah, you can’t get by not reading it on my watch. So basically this giveaway is simple. It is for a paperback version of Anna and the French Kiss. Giveaway will run until Friday February 21st at 9AM EST. and will be open internationally(only if the Book Depository will deliver to your country). Just fill out the form below and I will randomly selected a winner on the 21st and contact you via email to claim your prize. And for all of you out there that have a copy and haven’t read it yet? Do yourself a favor and do so IMMEDIATELY!

Book Blogger Love-A-Thon Mashup

20140215-163902.jpg

Alexa and Katelyn have been running this fabulous event all day yesterday and today and I decided to participate some. Last night I did the Madlibs and today is a Mashup of books and what we love. Make sure you check out Alexa’s and Katelyn’s blogs and the other participants.

Since my blog is a basic mashup of the things I love, clothes and books, I had to think about this and what I came up with was a post I did a while back but have been thinking of doing again: Dressing a book character.

Some months ago I decided to dress Anna Oliphant from Anna and the French Kiss. It was fun to think of what I knew about Anna and put her in clothes I think she would wear around Paris. I want to do it again, but I’m just not sure who yet. Suggestions are gladly accepted.

Book Blogger Love-A-Thon Madlibs

20140215-163902.jpg

So I’m late to the party and I don’t know how much I can participate, but Alexa and Katelyn are running this fabulous event today and tomorrow so I figured I would try to join some. Below is the third mini challenge of the Love-A-Thon and it was a fun Madlibs. Be sure to check out their blogs and th either bloggers posts. Let the silliness begin!

One day, I was DANCING with ETIENNE ST. CLAIR. Out of the blue, an OWL came out of nowhere! It was so BLUE, FAST and ROUND. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we BAKED. We hopped on the UNICYCLE to make our getaway.

As we escaped, we turned up the radio because BYE, BYE, BYE came on and made me RUN. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until a TIGER appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while ETIENNE ST. CLAIR stayed on the UNICYCLE I got thrown onto my side in the woods.

I couldn’t get up, and felt PRETTY as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a GROAN among the leaves, and felt GIDDY. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of PINK hair and GRAY eyes.

When I woke up again, I was on a DAY BED. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a PENCIL and BED in the room, along with CAKE and BEER. The door suddenly opened to reveal MATT FINCH, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he SMILED and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s okay.”

He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about SCRAPBOOKING, BEADING and READING and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was SLIPPERY and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.

Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came FINN. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at MATT FINCH. They each had MIXERS in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!”, I yelled, feeling so GLEEFUL. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, MATT FINCH fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.

“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. FINN dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, HONEY BEAR.” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.

Just as BABY I BELIEVE IN YOU started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my FANCY luck. Why had it only been just a dream?

Book Blogger #loveathon Introduction

20140215-173316.jpg

So I’m late to the party and I don’t know how much I can participate, but Alexa and Katelyn are running this fabulous event today and tomorrow so I figured I would try to join some.

1. How did you come up with your blog name?
I tried to think of something that would work for all my likes. If I couldn’t come up with a good blog name I wasn’t going to blog. One day I was on my way to work and it hit me. Accessories, books and clothes are my thing, so way not The ABCs.

2. What genre/subject matter do you read and review most on your blog?
I read and review mostly YA books. There will be the rare adult book, but those are far and few between. If there isn’t a book related post then most likely I’m yammering on about my love for JCrew and clothes/style in general.

3. Name the 3 books you’re excited for in 2014!
The One by Kiera Cass
Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins

4. Where in the world are you blogging from?
Boston, MA where we are currently in the middle of yet another snow storm? ARGH!

5. Tell us — how did you get into blogging in the first place?
I got into blogging thanks to the fabulous Michelle that ran Galleysmith. She convinced me to review with her and then through her’s and Gail at Ticket to Anywhere, they convinced me to go on my own.

6. Apart from reading, what other hobbies/interests do you have?
One word: Shopping! I just love to shop.

7. If you were stuck on a deserted island, which books would you bring with you?
Anna and the French Kiss, Open Road Summer, Pivot Point, Twenty Boy Summer, Altered, Divergent and Delirium. Oh and The Selection series.

8. If you were stuck in some dangerous situation (like a fire, a sinking ship, a warzone), which book boy or girl would you want to come and save you?
Under most curcuma trances I would say Etienne St. Clair because I love him. But for something like this I’m going with Finn from All Our Yesterdays.

9. You’re attending a party with your friends. Suddenly, the DJ changes the song and it’s YOUR song – what song would that be?
I’m a weirdo and like not popular DJ songs basically I’m crushing hardcore on Thirty Seconds to Mars’ City of Angels and their version of Rihanna’s song Stay.

10. What 3 movies would you love to have your favorite author write into books, or vice versa?
Dream A Little Dream would be an awesome book. Also Can’t Hardly Wait. Two is about all I’ve got as books to movies, movies to books scare the crap out of me.
