Road Trip Wednesday

Welcome to YAHighway's weekly road trip around the blogosphere!

This week's topic:

What's the best book you read in October?

Well, I'm heartily embarrassed to admit I didn't read a single dad-blame book in the whole month!  *insert gasps of horror here*  I know!  But October was my very own OctoWriMo in which I battered out a first draft of my new WIP.

Writing is a good excuse for not reading, right?  (And I actually did read one book, but it's tomorrow's post.  So you have to wait.)

To make up for it, I'm going to give you a special treat!  A Vlog so you can "meet me" in person!  I was going to do a vlog for the conference post (and even went so far as to make one) but chickened out and didn't post it.  So, here you are...Holly Live!  (Sort of.  Okay, not really, but it's as close as you'll get on a blog.)  Please forgive me for the wet hair and PJ's lol  I decided to squeeze it in just before Super Spawn's bedtime.

(PS I'm reading Lauren Olliver's BEFORE I FALL, not If I Fall like I say in the video.  Oops.  Guess that's what I get trying to make a video with a three-year-old nearby!)

OMG. Cutest movie ever. SUPER SPAWN IS HILARIOUS! And Holly, you have the sweetest, bubbliest laugh.

Thanks for sharing your video with us! It's so cool to see people "in action". :)

He thought he was so funny. When I played it after recording it, the kid laughed and laughed at himself. lol

I agree, I love vlogs and getting to see people for real.

Glad you liked it! :)

Nice to "meet" you, Holly--and Super Spawn, too. :) Now that Quita's finished reading Before I Fall, I'm stealing her copy so I can read it. And I have Francine Prose's book right on my bookshelf. Great minds think alike. :)

Claire Dawn said...

Your son is funny! :)

Yeah, sometimes a whole month goes by without reading. It happens. At least you had a good excuse.

My fave book last month was Meg Cabot's PANTS ON FIRE. If there was any doubt before, there's none now. I've never stopped being a 12 year old.

that's just about the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. how cool to "meet" you in a more real way. and super spawn is adorable.

I love how Super Spawn essentially photobombed your whole vlog. Too funny.

Props to you for doing one by the way. I'm way too self-conscious for one of those.

And definitely let us know about the Prose book and whether you find it helpful or not.

I thought BEFORE I FALL was great. Interested to see what you think about it!

Sarah Enni said...

AW what an adorable video! You and Super Spawn are so cute :)
(Also I am still in love with your ereader case. so chic.)
You are making me want to vlog!!

Holly Dodson said...

Do it Sarah!!! We should all do vlogs!!! I love getting to see people for real!!!

You can tell I'm excited by the idea, I pulled out all the exclamation point love.
