Happy Birthday to… August 19, 2009

Posted by bookbutterfly in birthdays.

Hey, everyone!! Today in the blogosphere we are celebrating a special birthday!ย Can you guess who’s it is? Here’s a hint:

Pleasant to talk to, she’s a
Radiant friend who is
Immensely kind and thoughtful–
Youthful yet wise, she is
Amiable and awesome in all ways!

There’s a hidden message in the acrostic poem (sorry it’s not very fancy ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). Guessed already? If you guessedย Priya, you’re absolutely right!


P.S. I think this picture is ADORABLE, in my opinion. Hope you like it, Priya! ๐Ÿ˜€


w00t, w00t! Go, Lisa Mantchev!! (And Other Random Updates) July 3, 2009

Posted by bookbutterfly in authors, birthdays, blogs and blogging, books, contests, friends, holidays, reviews and reviewing, websites, writings, yearbook.

EVERYONE has been buzzing about Eyes Like Stars–Lisa Mantchev’s debut novel. And I’m sure that if you’re dying to get your hands on this one (like me), you’ve read the synopsis a dozen times already. So I won’t post it again.


There are contest giveaways for it!! Everywhere! (Well, maybe not everywhere, but, ya know, in more than one place. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

If you haven’t heard of it or are not sure whether to read it, put it on your list now. My friend won a special copy from the author herself, and said it was FANTASTIC.

So…where can you win this oh-so-coveted book?

  • Ennalee!! Dearest Enna Isilee of Squeaky Books is holding a lovely giveaway right here. Click, blog, comment. Easy. But if you live in Antarctica, Ennalee can’t send it to you. You must be in the U.S. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Traveling to Teens. I just found this site a few minutes ago, and lookie! An ELS giveaway! Click, blog, comment, follow. Simple, right?

I am totally addicted to WordPress numbers and bullets now. Huh. I have weird penchants.

Anyhow, today I’m going to the beach to see some yearbook staffers. Yay! I miss yearbook. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ And…not much else to update except:

  • I’m an official Facebook addict.
  • I finished The Penderwicks!
  • I made this new system where I label absolute favorites “platinum”, favorites in general “gold, and close to favorites “silver”. The Penderwicks would be a silver; it’s REALLY good. I hope to write a review (haha, posting??? I’ll…fit it into my schedule somehow.)
  • I’m starting a review journal, since I’m so behind on reviews. One review blogger (I forget who) said she does that for professional reviews, and I thought that since my reviews are getting close to professional reviews (in style, not in reality ๐Ÿ˜› ), I should do the same. It’s helpful to log all your thoughts in about novels. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I updated some stuff on Butterfly Forest! Check out the directory page!
  • I’m in the middle of (somewhat crazily editing) Heaven’s Stars. It’s so corny, but so old-fashioned, simple, cutesy, and innocent. Maybe that’s why I like it so much. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • I really am addicted to these bullet points/numbers. ๐Ÿ˜›

Hasta luego,


P.S. Oh, and happy Fourth of July everybody. I’m going to see my family tomorrow; it’s also my uncle’s birthday. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it was Louis Armstrong’s birthday, too, right?

P.P.S. Speaking of awesome authors and cool giveaways, check out Maggie Stiefvater’s trailer for her upcoming novel Shiver! She made it herself, composed the music, played the music, did the art…and, of course, wrote the book! Enjoy!

QUIZ!!!!! October 26, 2008

Posted by bookbutterfly in birthdays, quizzes.

I made a quiz! So happy! I kept getting friends making quizzes of how well they know themselves, that i though it was about time I made one of myself. Only difference between me and my friends is…that I posted it on my blog! And I want my online friends (you guys) to take it, s’il vous plait? It’s right here, just scroll below my Jango jukebox, and click “Take the Quiz!” Let me know what percentage you guys got. I’m curious to find out! ๐Ÿ˜›

HOPE YOU HAD A FANTABULOUS DAY, HOHO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 17)

FELIZ CUMPLEAร‘OS, ENNALEE!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 22)

JOYEUX ANNIVERSAIRE, REBECCA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Sept. 30)

Edit 2: I’m going to keep updating the quiz scoreboard here by stating who is currently in the lead, which is still Delaney with anย awesome score of 70%! Give it up for Fauny! w00t! w00t! ๐Ÿ˜€

Oof, sorry I haven’t been on in forever! In case there are any misgivings against me (which I don’t think there are, knowing you guys, but like I said, just in case), I would just like to clear things up and say that I haven’t been on the computer (ie: Blogger, LRRH) in four days, and I was unable to check anything due to crazy stuff and HW. So sorry, sorry, sorry again! I also have finals coming up, so I’ll probably diappear yet again. I’ll give a shot at scheduled posting.

BTW, although the last post was about my b-day and I had that up forever was totally on accident. I meant to post more on MM after my b-day, but I couldn’t use the computer after that. Even though it may have looked like I was trying to spread the news about my b-day (which I was not at all trying to), it was a complete accident. I only posted that b/c the info on it was funny and I thought that the perfect day to post it would be my b-day. So I’m really sorry about that again. I have to check out y’all’s blogs. *goes off to do so* ๐Ÿ˜‰

Your weakness: Loving machines more than people

Your power color: Tan

Your power symbol: Pi

Your power month: July

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?
I think what they meant by the “evil robots” are the LRRHers. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyhow, this is BB Times’ 25th post! How appropriate, being that this is the 25th of May!
[edit: Darn it, I counted wrong! This is actually the 24th post! *scowls*)
