I WON!!! I WON I WON I WON!!! Yay for me!

So, the honest truth, I almost never enter contests. But…Mundie Moms were giving away an ARC of Holly Black’s White Cat, and, although I’ve never met Holly, she has a special place in my heart.

My youngest daughter was just like me when I was her age. She hated to read. So I searched, and searched and searched for something that might capture her interest. And, when I found it, it had Holly Black’s name on it. She and Tony DiTerlizzi have woven some of the cutest stories I’ve ever read into The Spiderwick Chronicles. And they’ll always be special to me because they taught my daughter to read.

And, then, they made the books into a movie, so it was her first experience of reading a book before seeing the movie, which hooked her even more.

So, of course, I’m now a diehard Holly Black fan. When I saw I had a chance to get my hands on a White Cat ARC, I couldn’t pass it up.

And I won!!!

Now, if they could only get BINBONS to deliver it, my fantasy would be complete. (picture courtesy of @meadowC and Sophie at Mundie Moms)
