I am mad. Not very mad just plain regular mad. I entered a contest to win Marissa Meyer's new book Cress. Now for those not in the know Cress is the third book in the Lunar Chronicles. They futuristic sci fi retellings of classc fairy tales. The newest book Cress focuses on Rapunzel. She gave out ARCs at Comicon but alas no one responded to pleas on twitter to grab one for me. I thought all hope was lost when she announced a pinterest contest. You just had to create a board based on the characters or inspired by the universe. So I created something thoughtful and creative. Images of unreleased words danced through my head. Relax I said you have a great idea and all the other boards are uninspired and just voice ideas she already wrote. We all know this story ends. I was not a finalist or even an blanking honorable mention. Really Really! And she wants me to vote one of the finalists.
So let me get this straight: I now have to wait until JANUARY to get my book, pay to read it and now you rub it in my face that you didn't like my idea by helping someone else get the book early and for free. Nope uh uh not that nice of a nerd.
I should. Finish this by saying she seems to be a rally nice lady and I still eagerly await the release of this book because zomg the first two were AMAZING! But after crappy day of counting a huge section of my store for inventory PREP. NOT THE INVENTORY ITSELF MIND YOU JUST PREPARING FOR THIS MORDOR THAT IS COMING. I really did not want to hear I lost. I know it is not a big deal cus its just a book but i wanted it to be my book. I now try not give in to twelve year old me who says see this is what happens when we try. Or hope.
Yeesh I want my book.
