Bad Girls Book Club Letter K #atozchallenge

Welcome to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge

Today’s letter is

K

The Book

killing jar

The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Wow. You won’t believe how difficult it was to find a book for today’s letter. But let me rephrase that. There are plenty of books that start with the letter K. But unfortunately, most of them involve kissing. And I’m just not that into books about kissing. It doesn’t say Bad Girl to me. And if it does, it’s not the kind of Bad Girl that I’m featuring in the challenge.

So the only option is to go with Killing; hich could totally infer Bad Girls. Kenna has done something really bad and has kept it a secret. She’s sent to live with relatives and she learns how to harness whatever this ability is. So, I’m not sure, but I’m thinking that whomever the people are she’s staying with have a secret too?

Maybe there’s a fine line between Good Girl and Bad Girl. I’ve also heard the book is creepy and dark.
What’s not to love? See you tomorrow for letter L?

Blogging from A to Z April Challenge: Help Needed!

If you’ve ever wanted to be part of something big and powerful now is the time! I’m accepting applications for help for the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

A2Z-BADGE-000 [2015] - Life is Good

There’s lots of work to be done but as you know, many hands make light work! If you desire to be part of my Alliance (aka A to Z Minions), which is kinda like the Alliance formed by the Victors in The Hunger Games, without the scary giant monkeys, leave a comment with your email address! If you’re inquisitive, or super helpful, or super curious, or a go getter, or love cake or love the challenge or want to take over the world, I want you! The only requirement is that you hafta be willing to go the distance (cue sappy Olympic music) but unlike The Hunger Games, no one loses!

Many moons ago, I, too, started out as a minion, and now look at me: I’m in my SECOND Year as an A to Z Team Member! It’s been incredibly gratifying and I’ve made some great friends. This year can only get better!

But seriously, it’s fun and you’ll meet lots of people, but you must be available the month of April and probably the week before.

Not sure if you’ve got what it takes?

Hit me up and let’s talk.

I’m also on Twitter: @pamlovesbooks

#AtoZchallenge Reflection: I’m Sad it’s Over!

A-to-Z Reflection [2014]

Well here we are, the calm after the storm.  To be sure, April’s blogging challenge is a whirlwind of activity and I hafta admit, I LOVED every moment of it!  It’s like being invited to a party and everyone’s excited to see you.  Parties are hard work and require lots of preparation and checking and double checking to make sure everything is just so. But all the hard work is worth it in the end of everyone has a good time, right?

Right.

I’m no stranger to the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge; I’ve been participating for a few years now. But the best thing for me was being a co host. It was a dream come true! I was so excited and honestly a little overwhelmed at time but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I learned alot about my time management skills during this time and that there is always room for improvement.

I love being able to meet new people, share books with them and get to know them better.  The Thursday afternoon Twitter chats were my absolute favorite day of the week.

So, very quickly, here’s what I’d like to stress:

  • Start planning early, like January
  • Join Triberr to get the most out of your Twitter account
  • Comment EVERYWHERE
  • Meet as many new people as you can
  • Laugh often and loud
  • Make mistakes and learn from them

Those last two especially apply to me. I made many mistakes but hopefully next year I wont make those same mistakes; I’ll prolly make new ones, but hey, that’s all part of learning, right? My biggest mistake: Not commenting enough. I wished I’d commented more.  I wished I’d eaten more cake too.

Did you write a reflections post? Leave your link below and I’ll visit you. Cake optional, I’m on a diet. hahahaha

See you next year!
