TWO OF MY FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT ADAM REX:

Favorite Youtube Video featuring Adam:

Check out this previous Book Trailer Thursday for another hilarious Fat Vampire vid.

Favorite quote from Adam’s “Letter to my Younger Self:”

…Do you know that feeling you get now when you’re just out on the street, minding your own business, and some anonymous critic shouts “nerd” from a moving car? Or something disparaging about your outfit? Now imagine that’s the only outfit you own. You have to wear it all the time, like one of the Castaways. You’re Ginger, and you’re only strolling on the beach, hurting no one, wearing that dress that says “U.S.S. Minnow” across the bust which you obviously made yourself, and in fact the only things you even have to wear are the Minnow dress and the “Happy Birthday Mister President” dress, and then a bottle washes up on shore, and there’s a message inside, and KittyKat93 from Tulsa, Oklahoma says “Nice outfit, Ginger lol.”

That’s the internet.

Go HERE to read the rest of the letter.

Gosh, he’s freaky. and AWESOME. Hmm am I talking about Skulduggery or Derek? I guess you will just have to read the books and his blog to find out. Yup, the battle of awesomeness between Derek and Skulduggery is ON. (oh no. I’m not sure it is nice to force competition between an author and his main character…)

Also: ever heard of Horror-Hop? Yeah, me neither until I checked out the Skulduggery Extras page on www.skulduggerypleasant.com.

One of the most exciting aspects to the Gossip Girl books and show is the F.A.S.H.I.O.N. Sometimes I miss whole minutes of the show because I am too busy ogling Blair’s shoes. Luckily, you do not need to be part of the Upper East Side world to be a fashionista!

Feelin’ creative? Why don’t you create some fashion spreads over at Polyvore? It is a super cool site where you can mix and match images of dresses, jeans, sunglasses, whatever in order to create a look which you can then share with others. Here is an example of a polyvore based on Serena’s style by Sourcat:

I’m sorry, but the above picture of Eoin cracks me up. PS. Did you know that EOIN is pronounced OWEN and not ewn or oin or ern or ooon or any of the other names that I have called him in the past? Yeah. EOIN=OWEN. It’s math.

So I guess when your name is as awesome as Eoin, you get to pull out all the stops for the release of your new book–Check out these videos promoting The Atlantis Complex:

From Ying’s Things You (Probably) Didn’t Know About the Victorians on her website’s Extras page:

Little-known truth: men sometimes wore corsets, too. It’s true, it’s true! Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband, was admired for his great posture and splendid tailoring. Turns out that he had help with his posture. And he certainly wasn’t alone.

YS Lee's BookplateSooo, thanks to my BRR post, you know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE YS Lee and her book A Spy in the House (and I fully expect to LOVE LOVE LOVE The Body at the Tower when I pick up my hold copy tomorrow!)–well I just found something else about YS Lee that I adore: her taste in bookplates! Bookplates are labels that are pasted or stuck into books that declare the owner and are often oh-so-hip looking. This is the design of Lee’s bookplate that she will sign for you to put in your book–all you have to do is email her and tell her what you would like inscribed on it! How fantastic is that?!

Favorite Paragraph from Lisi’s Bio:

I ended up staying at MTV for 12 great years. I had every brutal job there was and eventually worked my way up to Head Writer and then, Senior Director of Development. That’s when things got really cool. It was my job to create and develop new shows for the network including, “One Bad Trip” and “Room Raiders.” And believe it or not, it was MTV, not middle school that inspired me to write The Clique. There were so many employees at MTV who would do and wear anything just to be accepted by the so-called “cool people.” It reminded me so much of life in the seventh grade I had to write about it. And the rest is history.

LITTLE NERD MOMENT:
So last week I spent a good deal of time experiencing San Diego’s Comic-Con virtually through other people’s blogs and twitters. However, Christopher Paolini and the folks at Shur’tugal got to ACTUALLY be there. Me=jealous. You can check out Shur’tugal’s twitter for lots of pictures and updates and they will post their incredible, super long interview with Mr. Paolini (I think they said they had 70 PAGES OF QUESTIONS originally) soon!

But here’s the comic-con moment EVERYONE is talking about: a young boy asked Ryan Reynolds how it felt to recite the Green Lantern speech which inspired Ryan to recite in public for the first (known) time. gosh, kids could rule the world, you know?
