The Bookanistas--Divergent Celebration!

Sorry guys--I don't have a Bookanista review this week--had a few too many things going on with the POSSESSION Launch of Awesome and stuff.

Oh--and because we *finally* have our celebration for our fellow Bookanista, the uber-awesome--and now NYT BESTSELLING--Veronica Roth. (And yay--this time you don't have to endure any Shannon Dancing!)

Congratulations V! So. well. deserved!

*tosses confetti* 

I *may* be wrong here, but I have a feeling we'll be doing another one of these in the very near future. (wonder what we'd have to do...)

  1. Congrats to the winner of Possession.

    I'm almost finished with Divergent. It's really great.

  2. I'm pretty sure that by the time all is said and done, Lisa and Laura will have had their faces photoshopped on to more bodies than anyone in the history of history.

    Awesome video.

  3. I LOVE Matthew's comment! Bwa-ha-ha! I am positively in LOVE with Divergent. It's one of my favorite reads so far this year!! (I may be just a teensy bit in love with Four, too) :-)

  4. Congrats to the winner!

    I got to meet Veronica last night at a book signing. Who knew meeting published authors would make me nervous? I was all giggly and didn't know what to say to them and it was even worse because due to the fact that I lost my voice. Yeah, they had to strain their ears and probably just nodded their heads to please me but it was a ton of fun. I mostly gawked and giggled and begged for pictures with them. Them being FIVE awesome author's!

    Anyway, just had to share :) I loved the video you all put together.

  5. EEK! :) I'm so excited now, thanks so much! K - emailing.

  6. Great video you guys--you continue to blow me away with your creativity! And congrats to Veronica, so very deserved!!!

  8. That. Was. AWESOME! You guys rock. you really went beyond the beyonds.

    And it is totally deserved: DIVERGENT is a great read. Yay, Veronica! Go, girl!

  9. Loev this vid!

    Amused that noone's Abnegation, Could it be that writing is, by nature, self-indulgent? lol.
