Saturday Link Salad

Sooo much news this holiday weekend!  So lets get down to it shall we?

-Right off the top, you may have noticed I missed Feline Fridays.  Yes, well I've had a little mental block  on the days of the week this week due to a little bit of staycation time.  Don't worry, I have something special planned and so it'll only be a little belated!

-Because it's Easter, I've decided to give away one of the three books I most enjoyed this April- City of Fallen Angles, Red Glove and Rotters!  International (wherever the book depository ships), open to everyone (you don't have to be a follower but it does make my day when you become one!).  It's part of the Easter Hop so throw in your name and then spend some time cruising the list for more treats!

-Speaking of Red Glove, just a few days ago Holly Black announced the cover of book three- Black Heart.  Make sure to check out her blog for her tour comments.

- Speaking of City of Fallen Angels, Cassandra Clare has posted her Q & A post about the book, it's good fun as per usual.  See it doesn't have to be over yet!

- On the topic of awesome authors, Lauren Oliver has officially announced her middle grade book that's been popping up on posts from all those folks that were in Texas recently and got their hands on ARC's.  Liesl and Po sounds pretty cool, and Lauren is giving away three ARC's every month until it's release in October!  She's also popped up on the BEA listings, so if your going to be there make sure to check her out on the schedule!

- Speaking of the BEA, more awesome speakers have been announced, including Michael Moore and John Lithgow!

- Kristi, over at the Story Siren, has posted a Q and A about attending the BEA.  It's got some good info in it so if your heading to NYC next month make sure to peruse her tips.

- It would seem the week was full of Hunger Games casting announcements.  Prim, Glimmer, Rue and Katniss's mom were some of the many announced.  Head on over to the Hob, the fan site that seems to always have the latest and greatest news, to catch up.

- Speaking of NEWS! Stephen Kings newest book has had a cover release, and it's pretty awesome looking.  Check out the wide screen look here.

- Finally the latest Inkpop writing challenge is up!  Based on Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini the challenge is:
Using folklore, Greek mythology or some other historical text create a contemporary story or poem. You can turn King Arthur into a modern day football hero or Snow White can now be an independent feminist and seeker of justice. Use your imagination!
Both the challenge and the book sound pretty awesome. Make sure to stop in at Inkpop and get your creative juices flowing.
