Hello my lovelies!
I'm so sorry I've been a little bit absent over the weekend, but it was a busy one and today was the first quiet and relaxing day - it felt so good.
That's not the reason for this post though. I am sure a lot of you remember the amazing YA Sisterhood's Crush Tourney last year. It was the event and the incredible advocating job of Rachel from fiktshun who got me into reading Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series and ultimately made me fall in love with our one and only reaper, Tod Hudson. Back then, I didn't even have a blog - I was barely realizing there actually WERE blogs dedicated only to books.
This year there will be another YA Crush Tourney and I still cannot believe I am saying this but I - yes, silly old me!!! - will be Tod's advocate this year!!! When I first find out, I literally jumped up and down screaming - there might even have been a hysterical laugh thrown in here or there. My other half just looked at me a bit weird, but I didn't care.
I AM TOD HUDSON's ADVOCATE - yes, THE Tod Hudson!!!
I cannot say it often enough, I am so, so excited and proud and am really, really hoping to do him and Rachel Vincent justice. I have very big shoes to fill after the incredible and amazing job fiktshun did last year.
Tod and I will need ALL of YOU to help get him to the second round. His first match is a really tough one.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
WEDNESDAY - JULY 11th, 2012 against Magnus Bane from Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series
Voting will be open from 12:00am to 12:00am Eastern Time.
I will be posting the link here on the blog on match day, and you will also see me tweeting @smiling_ina all day long, so be prepared to get spammed with Tod and #YACrushTourney tweets on July, 11th. You can also follow Julie from Confessions of a Teenage Bibliophile on twitter @lBrokenAngel since she is a member of TEAM TOD as well.
We need to rally up as many friends, relatives, bloggers, anybody to vote for Tod! If you want to help Tod, please tweet, facebook, tumblr, as much as you possibly can before and on his match day. Please remember though, to keep everything friendly. No bashing of Magnus Bane or Cassandra Clare. It's all supposed to be a lot of fun, so we don't want any negativity.
I am super stoked to get this thing started!!!
PLEASE JOIN IN OUR QUEST TO LEAD TEAM TOD TO VICTORY!!!
