Moving on, this was meet with the normal happy dance I do whenever I receive a package. And then when my excitement was drained, I opened the package and inside among two other books, which you'll be hearing more about on Sunday, was the most AMAZING thing ever:
But Lauren, you're probably saying if you've been a reader of my blog for a long time, you read and reviewed that book last APRIL when it had a totally different cover and was supposed to come out on April 16; so why are you so excited about it?
Well, for that, I'll have to go back a bit. You see one day I was looking Penguin's Summer 2010 publishing catalog when I saw Plus with not only a new release date (August 2010!) but a new cover. And I was like, yay, it's finally being published! And then I glanced over section where it had quotes from reviews for it, and among ones from Kirkus and School Library Journal was one from my review from way back when. This in turn made me feel like a star! Though, it never crossed my mind that they would put my little quote on the new ARCs, until I saw this:
And then I freaked out and started jumping around since this is the first time I've know of that I've actually been quoted on an ARC!
So, yes that was my very awesome surprise of the week! And heres to hoping that maybe, just maybe, it'll end up on the final book in August. Though, I guess only time will tell. :)
