Oh guys! I hope you are all having a great Saturday.
I had such a wonderful week, that I wanted to share some of those wonderful and bewitched moments with you. Especially in light of our 3 Year Blogiversary, I wanted to post a happy post today! This last week showed me again, how much Book Blogging makes me happy. And it’s not about books or items I get – it’s what is beyond that.
The love for a story.
The love for an author.
I feel incredibly lucky to have a chance to interact on such a personal level, with authors, publishers and other bloggers!!
Of Triton by Anna Banks
I was screaming when I got the package! You might remember how fangirly excited I was about Of Poseidon last year. I was honestly hugging the book when it came! One day, I even color coordinated my clothes with the cover. Or it was rather, I was dressing myself and then I realized – holy cow, my clothes match the cover perfectly! You have to be a real geek to even realize such a thing..
I can’t express my love for this book and Anna Banks! I just wish at some point I could meet her….
Yes, I’m a geek!
And just so you know.. Of Triton was FANTASTIC!!!!
Scarlet and Macmillan Love Fest
I got such a cute package from Macmillian and .. I was confused as I didn’t expect any books. But, wowoo when I opened I was so beautifully surprised! I got a bright red Scarlet Hoodie and some other goodies. It’s sooo snuggly and cute I love it!!
See what I mean? look at my smiling face…
Wendy Higgins and Sweet Peril
Just like Of Poseidon, Sweet Evil totally blew me away last year. During the time the sequel was up in the air I was so sad that I came into contact with Wendy Higgins. This lead then to the Cover Design contest where the winner could win to become a character in Sweet Peril. I was so excited when Wendy was loving this idea and going with is. I did it because of the love for a book and because Wendy is such a sweet and wonderful person.
I had no idea that this contest would attract sooo many people and fans. But then… the biggest thing ever happend, because Wendy decided to not only take the winner’s name Jenny (Supernatural Snark) but also mine and Tara’s..
I couldn’t believe it.. This is the most epic thing ever.
So this week, Wendy send me an ARC.
And.. I was so touched and emotional – I had tears in my eyes! (No kidding, I’m a cry-baby).
Not only did Wendy sign the book, but she also put me in the acknowledgment. Hello? Me? I was so stunned I was tearing up!
Then.. I found the scene where Wendy put in Jenny, Tara and me (Daniela)…. I was speechless! She not only took our names but also gave me an european accent making this whole scene even more surreal for me.
I’m still not believing it and you can all bet that I will frame this copy!!!
So yes, all these moments were full of magic.. and just bewitched! Something I would be able to experience if I wouldn’t have decided 3 years ago to start Book Blogging.
I feel so lucky and all this just makes me life a little more wonderful and I am thankful for this experience!
So guys, after I shared my bewitched moments, do you also have moments where you were so touched? Please share with me, I’d love to hear all about it!
Much magic love!
