Football Friday



So Finally Friday shall now be Football Friday dedicated to recaps of England's wins (please, please!) as strive to win the world cup for the first time since 1966!

This is our year.

I can feel it!

ENGLAND (when it's football you have to shout!) play their first game next Saturday and they're  playing my adopted country the USA! I have my shirt, I'll be wearing it and hopefully making the second half but I won't be at kick off.

As much as I love the beautiful game, I love books more.

So while the baby and his Daddy are cheering England on.  I shall be a Bethesda Library at an event hosted by Politics and Prose to see three YA authors

Jenny Han

Kieran Scott

Elizabeth Scott

Anyone else going?

I am a little excited. Okay, I am a lot excited. I tend to not stay very sane about things I love. Although as I'm also very shy I  shall probably just mutter "hello I like your books" at them.

 I normally buy a book at the signing to giveaway on the blog but I  thought I'd do things in reverse (okay I didn't think it  I completely stole the idea from the awesome Daisy Whitney) and pick  the winner in advance so I can get their name in it. Which is much better, right?

So just fill in the form (are you impressed I created a form? I am!) telling me which book you'd like a signed copy  of, and more  importantly why.

Small print I absolutely promise to send you the book. I almost   guarantee it will be signed as I assume they'll do stock signing but I have a one year old, you never know what's going to happen. So I   may not make it but I'm 99% certain I will.

Contest ends Friday 11th June
It is open to USA, Canada and UK.
Sorry I can't make it international this time.

  2. I'm so impressed you created a form! I haven't tried that yet.

    I hope you get to go to the conference - it should be a ton of fun. Hopefully one of these days (okay, years) I'll make it to one of them :)
