Usually this would be a “Teaser Tuesday” or a “Tell All Tuesday” segment, but today is all about THE DUFF.
Kody Keplinger is running a contest for her debut novel THE DUFF over on her blog http://kodymekellkeplinger.blogspot.com/
You should enter, I know I did.
Why should you enter?
Well if you haven’t already ready my Fangirl Friday (insert link here) in which I interviewed her, then wouldn’t know how much I’ve Fangirled out over this book.
The concept drew me in IMMEDIATELY, (DUFF stands for Designated Ugly Fat Friend) and is about a DUFF who starts a secret relationship with the popular boy that gave her said nickname.
The book comes out September 7th…well at least I thought it did, but when I went with my husband to get a sports magazine at Barnes and Noble I SAW IT, IN THE WILD!
I literally squealed and then my husband looked at me to see if I was alright. I then grabbed the book and smooshed it in his face. “THIS ISN’T SUPPOSED TO BE OUT TILL SEPTEMBER.”
He shook his head and went over to the computer books section. While his pregnant wife stood in front of the YA section reading the first chapter of THE DUFF. Let me tell you it is SO mind boggling good that I wanted to take it home, put it in a pair of footie jammies and have it take a nap with me!
So you bought it?
NO. My reasonable husband looked at me and said, “Didn’t you just get ten new books for your birthday?”
“When you finish those you can buy another book. I’ll even let you buy it when we go meet Kiersten White at Anderson’s book store in September.”
Thus, I am entering this contest and thought hey maybe I’ll even give my blog followers a chance to win their own copy when my Blogfest contest starts September 9th. (Along with books from other AMAZING Fangirl authors).
So…enter her contest to and go FANGIRL OUT.
