#BOBblogoversary Day 13: Heidi McLaughlin + Giveaway

Welcome to day thirteen of my month long celebration event for Books Over Boys' three year anniversary! ;p If you would like to check out the first few days, you can do so by clicking the link that says "click here for all things blogoversary related" underneath the B.O.B. Turns 3 tab located in my right sidebar.

Even though the official day for my blogoversary has come to pass, I'm still celebrating because the days following my very first blog post are still worthy of celebration, yaknow? Well, I think so, anyway. Or, I just want a reason to celebrate, so here we are! ;p

For today's feature, I've got the lovely Heidi McLaughlin, author of Forever My Girl, here to join in the fun! Towards the end of last year into the beginning of this year, the scrutiny on the category, New Adult, began. Then, it was a brand new idea that no one was really sure about so when I started hearing a few of my close blogger pals raving about McLaughlin's Forever My Girl, I decided to give it a try. (Now, looking back, FMG is probably more Adult than it is New Adult but like I said, it was a new and shiny idea that no one was really sure about.)

After reading FMG, I've been a fan since (even though I've yet to catch up with the rest of the series ;p), so it's an honor to have McLaughlin here to celebrate Books Over Boys' three years!

I’m weird because…
I don’t like to eat what I cook
I’ll sometimes stare off into space
The smallest things excite me

I’m awesome because…
My girls love me
My dog thinks I’m the best ever
I can be

I’m a bad friend because…
Sometimes I don’t have time to talk to them as much as I want
I’m busy
I’m preoccupied

I’m a good friend because…
When I can talk, they get all my attention
If you’re my close friend, you know it
I love my friends

I’m sad because…
Winter is looming
My parents live 3,000 miles away
My daughter is a senior

I’m happy because…
My girls laugh all the time
I get to do what I love
I inspire others

I’m excited for…
The Beaumont series #3
Friday night football

  7. Happy blogiversary! My day has been great so far! Hope all is great with you too. Keep up the fine work :)

  9. My ay is going great, so far :) Nice and cloudy outside, just the way I like it :)

  10. I prefer e-books because I'm partially blind and I can easily make the text as big as I need to :) Although, I do miss out on the texture and smell of a real book. My daughter prefers real books herself, so we still have a library of them around :)

  11. My current book boyfriend is Tyrion Lannister :) I love him so much!!! ;)

  12. The thing I love best about November is that it finally starts to get really rainy again :) Rainy days are my favorite :)


Thanks so much for stopping by Books Over Boys! You're a fun little lollipop triple dipped in awesomesauce. ;p
