Bookie Brunch Trick or Treat Blog Hop

Welcome to Unconventional Librarian Day.  I think I like the sound of that! If you’re stopping by from Book Brunch, THANK YOU! If you’re not, WELCOME! Today on my stop on the tour I’m sharing some fun and ridiculously cute stuff.

Not sure what Bookie Brunch is? Check it out here.  See anything familiar? YES, it’s Random Magic!

Remember all the fun we had on the Pinterest Tour? Catch what we did here.

If you’re like me, you don’t like to be scared but you like having fun and eating candy.  So, because I’m a scaredy cat, I like to celebrate Halloween in an unconventional way.  I read  only CUTE kids books!

So…my treat today is a collection of CUTE Halloweenie type treats!

Inside this treat is a cute Halloween book about a square pumpkin, tattoos, greeting cards and cute lil erasers. All kinds of fun things to put in someone’s Halloween treat bag. Or to keep!

Here’s how to enter:  leave a comment below telling me about your favorite Halloween candy.  You can enter as many times as you’d like; the more you comment, the better your chances to win!  Contest runs October 25 at midnight until October 28th midnight. I’ll contact the winner via Random (Magic) on Monday October 29th so that I can send your prize in time for Halloween!

Remember, leave your comment below and Happy Halloween!

Random Magic Pinterest Tour starts July 15!

You may have heard that the book Random Magic, by Sasha Soren, is touring all over the place.

If you heard that, you’d be right.

Sasha has SMARTLY GRACIOUSLY included me in on the proceedings,

mostly, to stop listening to me cry and whine.

But either way, I’m at the PARTY!

As you know, An Unconventional Librarian loves books about fun things.

Random Magic is proving to be so. much. fun!

What’s so fun about this tour is that

I get to host the pinning on PINTEREST!

What? you don’t follow me on Pinterest?

Get over there right now and do it: iyampam

or simply click the link for the Random Magicness.

Go ahead, I’ll wait.

There.

You’re all hooked up to the Random Magicness

the Random Magicity

the Random Magicality

the Random Magiceuse if you’re French, prolly.

see? I’m on the cover of the book

and I’m over at Pinterest pinning things that

remind us of the Random Magic book (themes, spaces, characters, etc).

It’s kind of online book club meets Pinterest.

Come check it out and follow along.

The rave party runs July 15 through Sept 15,

so there’s lots of time join the festivities!

This first week, let’s visit Chapters 1-5 and pin items that are reminiscent of those chapters.

Splash Into Summer mermaid book Giveaway!

I have invited Sasha Soren, the author of Random Magic, to visit Colorimetry.  Every weekend she hosts a seriously delightful thingame called Book Nooks, where bloggers gather to share the latest find in great places to read.

There’s some wonderful bloggers participating and some fun stuff. Since Sasha is full of surprises, just like her book, she is bringing a unique prize for Colorimetry readers…
Random MagicRandom Magic

by Sasha Soren

Paperback, 397 pages

Published January 1st 2010 by Beach Books, LLC

Premise:

When absent-minded Professor Random misplaces the main character from Alice in Wonderland, young Henry Witherspoon must book-jump to fetch Alice before chaos theory kicks in and the world vanishes. 


Along the way he meets Winnie Flapjack, a wit-cracking doodle witch with nothing to her name but a magic feather and a plan. Such as it is. 


Henry and Winnie brave the Dark Queen, whatwolves, pirates, Struths, and fluttersmoths, Priscilla and Charybdis, obnoxiously cheerful vampires, Baron Samedi, a nine-dimensional cat, and one perpetually inebriated Muse to rescue Alice and save the world by tea time.
