Happy Friday #6 – Mishmash and a big THANK YOU (yes you there reading this :D)

Yay it’s Friday…and it’s Happy Friday 😀

Did you know that people start to look for “Happy Friday” as of Wednesday? They sometimes land here, on my blog, where I pour my soul and heart :D, I hope they enjoy what they see…I think last Friday, I got 40 hits just “search related”…Everybody deserves a happy Friday…

I’ve been feeling down this week, with a cough that just thought we should be best friends and did not understand why I tried to push it away…Feeling better now and finally induldged in coffee (how I missed thou).

Here is my Happy Friday mishmash.

* Reading: I did not revise this week but did a looot of reading. For the genius-Tracey-‘s-idea-YA-book-Club, I read The Fault in Our Stars and my fingers itch to share my feelings but I’ll wait until the end of February :D. Thanks to NetGalley, I also read Welcome Caller, this is Chloe and Goddess, Interrupted. They were fun reads and a proper review will come in the next weeks. After finishing Bittersweet , I craved cupcakes and diving into The Future of Us made me miss the 90’s :D. By the way, if you have any YA romance contemporary recommendations, don’t hesitate to throw them my way…

* Writers’ Platform-Building Campaign: Yay! I joined Rachael’s fourth Writers’ Platform-Building Campaign. I saw the linkie on a couple of blogs before and it just sounds like a wonderful opportunity. The writing community is really supportive and fun to hang out with (even if it is only on the interwebs)

* The people behind the writing community aka you: Blog hopping this week (being for YA Highway‘s the Road Trip Wednesday or my regular blog reading), I could not help but notice again how insightful, thoughtful, funny and inspiring you guys are. Thank you for making me think, smile and for sharing a part of yourself. I really feel like I’m starting to know some of you and I really wish we could go for coffee/tea/movies (The Hunger Games, anyone?). Talking about smiling. thank you also for your support, wit and laughs on Twitter 😀

So, tell me what made you smile this week?

    RTW was great this week, wasn’t it? I found it very encouraging. As for contemporary YA romance recommendations: I’m not sure how this book is because I’ve been waiting for it to come out for a while now, but have you heard of The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen? I’m also waiting on My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick,but it doesn’t hit the shelves until June 😦 <— this is me and me is impatient. Happy Friday, Elodie 🙂

      Those books sound great (got them on my TBR :D) – I understand your impatience Jaime…Think about when the next Stephanie Perkins comes out: only in 2013…impatience is also taking over me now lol

  2. Hello 🙂 I’m a campaigner (I write YA under the name Rhiannon Morgan). I’m looking forward to getting to know you and your stuff.

    What made me smile this week? My naked four year-old catapulting herself at my terrified 21 yr-old brother, mostly…

    I got to commute this week (big smile) a 5 hr TGV ride to Sable sur Sarthe with my kindle, what didn’t make me smile was realising the battery was flat on the return journey and that I’d not brought the charger with me. Fortunately I had a couple of copies of the Saturday Guardian review (the weekly literature review) to keep me occupied.

  4. Today I saw “Welcome Caller, This is Chloe” for the first time and was wondering what kind of book it was and whether it was good… What did you think?

    I’m also in the paranormal romance campaign group 🙂

    The Future of Us is on my TBR pile. I keep hearing such great things about it. I just finished Across the Universe and went quickly on to the sequel A Million Suns. Awesome books, if you haven’t already read them! I’m a day late, so – Happy Saturday! 🙂

    Hi Elodie! I’m in your campaign group! Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Some YA romance recommendations- if you look around my blog much you’ll notice that I’m mildly obsessed with Anna an the French Kiss. Lola and the Boy Next Door is also good. And An Abundance of Katherines!

    • Elodie says:

    Hi Elodie! Nice to meet you! Great blog you have…Thanks for stopping by my amateurish blog…I totally love your two excerpts of romantic/steamy scenes! Hope to read more of you…

  9. Hi Elodie,

    Little by little I’m making the rounds for the campaign. I love your Happy Friday idea. I’ll check back this week to see what’s making you smile. I too am happy to be involved in the campaign, and thanks for stopping by my blog.
