Internet Out (and the sadness this has caused)

Okay, so, here's what's up:

I have no Internet at home. 

On Saturday (at least, I think it was Saturday, without my beloved Internet all the days seem to be blurring together), a bunch of storms and rain and such blew through the area and knocked out the power of like half the state. (I do not know if this is still true. Presumably it is somewhat fixed.) The power at my house went out for tiny little bits, but came back on pretty quick. My Internet did not fare so well.

So basically, I spent Saturday afternoon and the entirety of Sunday in a state of emotional distress. I wouldn't have been so worried if all of the data on my phone hadn't been mysteriously used up, leaving me without even EMAIL. But it had, so I didn't.

Anyway, Internet is STILL down at my house, so I'm writing this (and frantically trying to catch up on comments, Twitter, Tumblr, Goodreads, Formspring and email stuff) from the library in town, which has free Internet and employs my brother, who was willing to drive me since he was coming in anyway. This is just a little note to explain WHY I have not answered your comments/Tweets/Tumblr things/etc, and to tell you that until Internet comes back (which had BETTER be soon ;D), I'll be online sporadically and my postings here on the blog will be sparse. 

ALSO: You all know about the YA Sisterhood's Crush Tourney, right? Where super awesome guys from super-awesome YA books battle it out to be crowned the most crush-worthy?

Well, I have some super-exciting news: I AM AN ADVOCATE THIS YEAR.

This is super exciting to me for more than one reason. 

  1. If it were not for this tournament last year, I would probably not be a book blogger. This was how I found out book blogging EXISTED. (Long story short, I saw something about the tourney on Ally Carter's blog, saw the crushes, read the books, saw the advocates, saw their blogs, thought that was awesome, made my own.)
  2. This tournament absolutely, positively ROCKS. It's sooo much fun!!
  3. I get to advocate none other than ARCHER CROSS. Yes, that Archer Cross. From the Hex Hall series by the fabulous Rachel Hawkins. He is so super awesome and crushable, and so it's up to you guys to help me launch him to victory!! (more on that in a separate post I'll be getting up in a bit)
So yeah, I'd like Internet back up for that, among other things.

Anyway, I'm here for now, so feel free to send me a tweet or a comment or whatever, and I'll get back to you whenever I can find myself some Internet ;) 

*ETA* Oh, and now that the Winterhaven swag giveaway is over, I'll be picking a winner in a bit! Stay tuned!!



  1. Awww, Mag! That sucks royally. I hope it comes back soon!

    Also - I HAVE NOT READ HEX HALL!!! But everyone seems to love it, so I'm always on the lookout for it. The computer does NOT have enough downloadable copies of ANYTHING anymore. :'(

    Anywayys, congrats on becoming advocate and yay for last year's tournament! It added another awesome blogger to add to the world of awesomeness. ;D And now I'm off to answer your message. Hope to see you back soon! :)

    1. Lol, thanks!

      I am so excited about the Tourney, though!! You MUST read HH, and Demonglass, and Spell Bound!! Trust me, you shall not be disappointed. I hope.


  2. :D As soon as I lay eyes on it, I'm reading it. No question. I hope so too. :)

    Why, thank you. You're not the first to tell me that. ;) Lol, but my friends who I actually see on a daily basis seem to agree on my evilness. Call me confused. Hmm, on second thoughts, maybe I shouldn't have told you that... ;)

    1. HAHAHA I'm sure you're plenty evil, no worries. (Aren't we all? ;D)
