Ah-MAY-zing Reads Twitter Party
Last friday night (Saturday morning for me and others), we celebrated all the Ah-MAY-zing Reads of Spring 2014 by having an awesome party on Twitter. #AhMAYzingReads was such a blast!!!!!!!!! It was my first time ever hosting a twitter party and I was so nervous that only a few people would come but so many book nerds were there, very much ready to have fun. Several guest authors came to party with us, namely, Paula Stokes, Kieran Scott, Kristi Helvig, Cammie McGovern, Bethany Crandell, Lindsey Leavitt! We all talked about books, shared thoughts and experiences- it was like this huge bookish slumber party with a helluva lot of awesome bookish friends!
And of course, we had giveaways! We had 8 fabulous prizes up for grabs and for every prize, I asked a question! Of course, I asked several tough (and personal) questions. *insert evil laugh* Still, everyone had super fantastic answers that made us all laugh and cry and get all the feels. I had to pick the best answer for each question which was seriously hard because all of them were really good so I picked the really good ones and used a random generator to pick a final winner. Here are some of the questions and the winning answers!
Prize #1: Only Everything swag pack (INT)
Question: If Eros were to match up any couple, who would you want it to be and why?
Prize #2: A Girl Called Fearless tee (INT)
