Hello, everyone! Little One on the blog today. What’s shakin’?
You’ll never guess what my writer was going to do. She wasn’t going to let me write on the blog today, the one and only day that she scheduled me to write this month. I know! How rude!
She said she had a good reason… she said that she was asked by Penguin if she wanted to join a bunch of book bloggers to write a “Blog Most Likely To…” post to celebrate the release of the book The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick–an author that she really likes–in August. So I told her that I can help celebrate a book release with her. For one thing, I like books too. They sure are tasty! And I’ll be sitting by her side as she reads the book once it’s released, just like I did for My Life Next Door and What I Thought Was True.
Besides, if she were to write the post she might try to give you a glamorized look at her life with The Blog Most Likely To…, but I’ll give you a real peak!
Dreams, etc. is the blog most likely to be surrounded a sleeping puppy (that’s me!), half-full cups of drinks and stacks of books while reading.
You read that right. My writer is a slob! Other than the sleeping puppy part. Obviously.
It never fails that as I snooze by her side while she reads, she’ll disturb my rest by getting up to make a cup of tea or coffee. It’s like she thinks a warm beverage will enhance her reading experience or something. The only thing is, she disturbs my rest to make a drink, but she doesn’t finish it. The first few times I saw this happen, I thought, “Cool! She wants to share!” But as soon as I dipped my mouth into her cup, she told me I couldn’t drink any.
So, if you come into my–sorry, her–room, you’ll probably find a half-full cup of tea next to a stack of books.
That’s part two of this post: her stacks of books. She’s one of those who thinks that having a stack of books on a surface is a “decoration.” Really, she’s just running out of bookshelf space, so she puts a stack of books on her dresser or her nightstand to hold up her lipstick or a lamp and call it functional.
And if you’re thinking, “Maybe she lets Little One nibble on the tasty corners of her books sometimes,” it is with great sadness that I have to say no, she doesn’t. For some reason she frowns on eating books.
As my writer anxiously waits for The Boy Most Likely To to be released (it’s one of the books she’s been looking forward to most this summer!) she’s going to reread Huntley Fitzpatrick’s other books in June and July. You know what that means… more puppy/writer cuddle time! Stay tuned for reviews and, if you want to join her, read My Life Next Door in June and What I Thought Was True in July!
Until next time, keep those tails waggin’!
Note – I purchased all of the books featured in these photos.
