We understand that even the most hardcore fanpeople have real lives that demand their attention. (Can someone do away with the whole ‘paying bills’ thing so we can quit our jobs and be full-time fans? Thanks.) Here’s a recap of this week’s posts so you can get caught up on all the keysmashing.
The first Saturday of every month we’ll be sharing themed photos from the last month, giving you a little glimpse into the life of the Keysmash OT5. If you want to participate, check out the graphic below with the themes for next month, and post your pics with the tag #ksbpics.
The best thing about having friends who are authors, is that sometimes, you go stay at their house for a weekend, and they hand you a bunch of books and say, “Here do a giveaway on your blog if you’d like!”
In this case, Christina Lauren, the authors of the NYT Bestseller, Beautiful Bastard, who’ve always been super generous to our blog, gave me signed copies of the Wild Seasons books out now: Sweet Filthy Boy, Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night (just released September 15) for you to win!
If you’re not familiar with the Wild Seasons series, the premise is awesome, and hilarious. Three women: Mia, Harlow, and Lola head to Vegas for a post-college graduation party that they surely won’t forget, especially when after meeting with the French lawyer, Ansel, the rugged fisherman, Finn, and the Australian comic book lover, Oliver. They all pair up, and end up married after a long night of drinking and partying. Each book follows one couple, and what happens after well, as Katy Perry said, “waking up in Vegas”. The books are like the best romantic comedy film you could watch, but even sexier.
All you have to do is enter your information in the widget below and we will pick a winner on Monday, October 5, just ahead of their brand new haunting Young Adult release of The House. Only one winner will be chosen to win all 3 books. Good luck!
Open to US residents only.
My Light the Night walk is one week away, and I’ll be showing up at registration with a smile because GIVESMASH, Vol. 2 was such a success. I can only hope that we can make our new project one, as well.
Check out the books, movies, music, and shows we’ve been loving lately. We can’t deliver you a personal pan pizza, but we will give you a gold star.
I know we’re only two weeks in, but I’m going to say it. GOTHAM HAS GOTTEN GREAT AGAIN. If you gave up on it last season, go power through the episodes you missed and WATCH THIS SEASON. Now, the wheels may fall off at some point, but there’s just the perfect level of theatrics and actual drama, and the writing is so darkly funny. I’m so pumped.
Introverted computer engineer Charlie Forrester has coded an algorithm for love, a nearly flawless matchmaking program. But then she’s challenged to prove its accuracy – on herself. With her dream job on the line, Charlie has thirty days to forge a romantic relationship with her “perfect” match…her ex-friend and now-nemesis, Daniel Shawn. Since her dating experience is expressed in binary, she’ll need more than flirting lessons and a wardrobe overhaul to pull it off.
After falling victim to the same online matchmaking con he was investigating, reporter Daniel Shawn’s professional reputation went up in flames. Now he suspects someone has rebooted the scam, and he’s determined to expose the fraud and rebuild his career. Unfortunately, his efforts to get back in the game get sidetracked by Charlie and her adorable geekitude, even though she seems to know a little too much about digital dating for Daniel’s comfort.
And when fake romance crosses into real chemistry, Charlie’s formula for love might just be the perfect formula for disaster…
I’m taking part in Book Riot’s Read Harder challenge. You can see the list of tasks here. Every other week I’ll be posting a list of books that will fulfill one task, and then choosing one to read. This week’s task is to read a graphic novel, a graphic memoir, or a collection of comics. This feels like a cheat week to me, because I have a comics TBR a mile long, so I’m basically just taking titles off of it that have a trade paperback or two already out.
