I picked up the LONG awaited spin off series of Fever, called Iced. I absolutely cannot wait to start reading this.
I also hosted a book club meeting: The Scarlet Letter held at Red Ginger. It was probably the best book club meeting I've been to in months. A good group, who talked, had read the book, and were fun to hang out with. It helps that the food was delicious.
I unfortunately had to be at that silly place called work so I wasn't able to go. But the amazing Yai Yai got the answer to every parents burning question: Where are Max and Ruby's parents?! Mrs. Wells explained that the characters were based on her own kids, 5 and 1. And her five year old was always bossing the one year old around, telling him how to act and what to say and what to do. And she's be listening from another room, which is why you never see the parents in the story. The girls were super excited when they got home and told me all about how they met Max but Ruby couldn't come, and how they met Rosemary Wells who's the author of the Max and Ruby books, and how she read them a story and signed their new books. It was a proud moment for this nerd parent.
Here's the video of them talking about the book signing but it maybe side ways on your computer. I can't figure it out.
Hopefully I keep up with the blog and do some make up posts. Make sure to click the link over to Marissa's blog and check out her awesome give away.
