sara watches the 100

(In vain I have struggled. It will not do. I am totally writing a parody for the TV show the 100. Also, as if you couldn’t tell, I have a ship.)

Monstrous Affections has arrived!

Oh Lord, look at how much longer my story is than everyone else’s. Well-chosen… words? Virtue in brevity?

I’m a monster and I must be stopped.

Totally Unexpected Announcement: LYNBURN LEGACY READ ALONG

yabooknook:

My friends, I have EXCELLENT news!

Have you recently found yourself craving torment? Soul-twisting misery? Feels that make you wanna cry and laugh and possibly cry some more? 

The answer is yes. Don’t question it.

Well, I have the solution to all those problems:

image

Ta-da! (Graph made by Sondra, ‘cause she has skills and I suck.)

So, as everyone (EVERYONE) knows, UNMADE by Sarah Rees Brennan is coming out ridiculously soon on September 23rd *throws confetti*, which means we have roughly a month before finally, finally getting our hands on the soul-wrenching finale to The Lynburn Legacy trilogy.

To celebrate, and perhaps because we are masochists, the lovely Sondra and I will be hosting a Lynburn Legacy Read-Along starting tomorrow. 

Everyone should totally join. I 100% endorse it.

So, here’s how it’s going to work: The Read-Along will happen over tumblr and twitter, roughly during the set dates (above). Sondra and I will be both reblogging/responding/crying with you guys and moderating “Book Chats” over on Twitter.

The idea is that we (all) re-read UNSPOKEN and UNTOLD right on time for the UNMADE release—and then read that together as well. Misery loves company, right? Yay, shared pain!

(Coincidentally, if you’ve never read UNSPOKEN, this is a great time to do it! Yes. Do it. You want to.)

The times for the Twitter Chats will be announced once they get closer, because Sondra and I will have to coordinate silly time zone differences.

We’ll be using the tag #LynburnRead on twitter and tumblr, so if you are reading along (of course you are!) or making/posting content you’d like us to see, tag it with that!

(Alternatively, #JaredHasAFineAss is also a tag we’ll be tracking. I mean, no, that’s totally unofficial… you didn’t hear it from me.)

SO! If you want to join in this crazy awesome Read Along you do, either message me or Sondra or make a post or tweet it or start tagging stuff with the tag—Basically, make yourself known whichever way you want. We’ll be waiting.

Tell your followers! Your friends! Your parents! Your dog! Your psycho-uncle-who-is-also-your-dad!

Wait. No.

ARE YOU ALL EXCITED ABOUT THIS?! I am ;)

Contact-y info:

Adriana (YABookNook) - tumblr - twitter

Sondra - tumblr - twitter

I am super excited this is happening! Look what a perfect opportunity has been handed to me to use this .gif. ;)

Even more than that, I am excited because of what a lovely thing this is. As I go toward the official end of the trilogy and an UNKNOWN FUTURE (there may be bears involved… bears in space) it is so beautimous to me to see love for this series which I love, and the idea of having a celebration-y reading time for it pleases me so much. I’m so happy Adriana and Sondra want to do it.

I will be makin’ myself available on twitter and tumblr, and use the tag, to answer any questions/cackle wildly at your pain. 

'Have you recently found yourself craving torment? Soul-twisting misery?'

I feel really lucky that for my belovedest readers the answer was yes. ;)
