I’m at the beach this week, but I still saw a few things around the ’net I wanted to share with you this week.
The first round decisions for the Nerds Heart YA tournament are starting to come in. Check it out. I’m a semi-finalist judge with the fabulous Nicole from Linus’s Blanket and I can’t wait to get my books! You know I’m watching this with baited breath!
Speaking of NerdsHeartYA, Melissa over at Book Nut interviewed one of the authors whose book was chosen for the tournament. Meet Jennifer Roy, author of Mindblind, which sounds fantastic by the way.
I really wish I could sew. I want to make one of these Library Tote Bags!
Patrick Ness won the Carnegie Medal for Monsters of Men! He accepted the prize with a “fierce defense of libraries.” As if I needed more cause to love the man. Plus, he’s kind of a cutie.
I don’t know about you, but summer means cooking out around here. These mushroom cheddar sliders look to die for!
I did my first tiny vlog, of sorts, so if you want to hear the thick Southernness of my accent, you can watch it here. I’m responding to a question; my three favorite physical possessions. Three guesses what I said.
