I'm guest blogging at Brooke Moss' place today. I absolutely LOVE her blog. If you need a chuckle, her blog is the place to be. Here's the link of you'd like to follow me there to read my debut author revelations. You can also comment on her blog to win a copy of The Waiting Booth.
I'm traveling this week. Yesterday I sat on airplanes and in airports for 13 hours. No, I did not travel to the North Pole, but I'm certain that I'm close. It's really cold here and may snow. As a lesson for me, I have discovered there is a limit to the airport shopping and people watching I can do and still maintain sanity. Therefore, I'm a little crazy today. (Note to self: ALWAYS take a book on the plane. A person writing in a notebook does not look busy enough to the passenger sitting next to him/her.) I'm sure I'll recover. I'll be doing it again tomorrow, so I need to post my Week 3 post for I Love Dark YA Blogfest now. I had a choice between casting the movie and making a playlist for a favorite dark YA book.
If you've read Forever (Book 3 of Wolves of Mercy Falls) by Maggie Stiefvater, you know how rich this book is with music. Two main characters, Sam Roth and Cole St. Clair, are both singers who play musical instruments, but they are stylistically very different from each other. If you can tell which songs belong to which character/scenes, leave me a comment. I loved doing this post as part of the I Love Dark YA Blogfest! Because I tend to favor alternative and pop music, you won't find any country or rap on my playlist. Of course, this music fits perfectly with this book because Cole St. Clair is definitely going to rock the house while Sam serenades you sweetly with his acoustic guitar.
