This is a treat: an ARC copy of Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, brought to you by Alyssa over at http://theshadyglade.blogspot.com (love the name btw!) This is extra special b/c normally the book doesn’t come out until September 1, and if you read The Hunger Games a while back like I did, that’s gonna be a long wait. :)
It ends today but make sure to check out her site for loads of great content and more contests!
So, the third book in the Inheritance series came out this weekend. I don’t know if there was a book event or not, sadly I was busy working. :( But here’s an excerpt on msn.com for your reading pleasure:
Excerpt: Fantasy novel ‘Brisingr’
Cover of Brisingr
It’s here! The fourth book in the series by Stephenie Meyer, completing the story of Bella and Edward.
I went to the Borders Release Party last night, it was very fun. Borders is always a rockin’ place, but packed with 100 Twilight fans? Heck ya! There was a book discussion forum, a style show, and they showed previews of the upcoming Twilight movie. The costumes weren’t nearly as showy as the Harry Potter crowd, but some of the t-shirts were top notch and one group dressed up as the Volturi (nice one).
It started at 9:30. At midnight came the actual book release. Everyone that pre-ordered got a wristband with a number, and people stood in line in groups of 50s. The Borders staff really handled it well and shockingly had the first 200 copies out in about 20 minutes!
So if you’ve never been to a release party before, grab some friends and go! They are a blast.
