Does everyone know who this lovely lady is?? Hmm?? Well you all should because she is the coolest! And I'm not exaggerating one bit when I say that.
For all of you who don't know (shame on you!!) this super awesome lady (with the gorgeous necklace and I'm sure fabulous shoes--she loves shoes as much as I do!! There's nothing cooler than that, for sure) is Daisy Whitney, debut author of The Mockingbirds, which will be flying off bookstore shelves nationwide on November 2, 2010.
Now, you're probably asking yourself why I'm professing my love for Daisy when her book isn't even out yet. Well, I do have a reason.
And that reason is.....
Why yes, that picture you see is an ARC of Daisy's book, The Mockingbirds. And yes, that is a picture I took of the ARC my dear, shoe lovin', friend Daisy sent for me to worship. *ahem* I mean, read.
How cool is that?!?!?!!! I couldn't resist taking more pictures, because, I mean, just look at it! It's beautiful, isn't it!
Here's a picture of The Mockingbirds on my book shelf, where it will rest permanently November 2, 2010.
And here's another picture of The Mockingbirds on a different book shelf. I guess I was just testing out where it fits better. I haven't decided yet, so I might just have to buy multiple copies. :)
And lastly, I think I may have got a little carried away. Here is The Mockingbirds as my computer background. (For those of you wondering, yes, I actually squeezed it in through that cd-rom slot. I'll be the first to tell you, it wasn't easy. *Wink, wink* But isn't it pretty!)
Anyway, I want thank Daisy for sending me a copy of her ARC to read. I was dying to read it and believe me when I say: OMG... you guys must pre-order your copy of The Mockingbirds now!! And, you can find more info about The Mockingbirds on Daisy's website.
But wait, there's more. A few month's back, this lovely lady, donated a book for me to give away during one of my contests. For whatever reason (because really, I can't remember why I haven't given this book away yet), I still have it and have decided that now is as good as ever to give it away.
The book: Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan. And to top it off, it's AUTOGRAPHED!!
Pretty cool, huh?
But that's not it. I swear, Daisy is one of the most generous people on earth! Thanks to Daisy, I have more prizes.
