Snapple Real Fact #769: If a sheep and a goat mate the offspring is called a geep.
(I swear I may never get tired of Snapple facts. Who even needs to know this stuff? But seriously, if I ever make it on to Jeopardy, my first answer (regardless of the category) will definitely be ‘What is a geep?’. My backup plan: work a geep into my next novel. Look for it people!)
OMG! I am in love. I couldn’t post this week without mentioning the awesomeness that is Forever Young Adult. I don’t want to go all fangirl here, but this website completely rocked my, well, maybe not my world, but definitely my mood, this weekend. *Ahem*. I mean, today’s post is about spreading a little YA love (because this sounds so much more credible, obviously).
There are a lot of sites that I ‘heart’ (some of my fav’s are listed on the right), but I’m always looking for new and interesting blogs, perspectives, reviews, and stuff. Another blogger put me onto FYA and I’ve gotta tell you, I laughed out loud. And snorted. And there might have been a few tears (but only the good kind).
The ladies who run FYA are fan-frickin-tastic in my book! Why? Oh, let me count the reasons (because I haven’t done a list for a while and it seems I’m due!):
1. The Cast: These ladies may love YA, but as the name suggests, it’s a mindset and not an age.
2. Drinking Games: ‘Nuff said!
3. Relevance: All YA, all the time!
4. Wit: Not only is the writing wildly funny, the lexicons are brilliant!
5. No Holds Barred: If you’re looking for a bunch of PC twi-hards… This isn’t the site for you.
If you’re a YA lover, I encourage you to check out the site! Now.
Oh, yeah, and for The Hunger Games fans among us…. I can also thank FYA for my officially unofficial THG name: Inless M. Screamlily. It does have a lovely ring to it, doesn’t it?
