We are officially one week away from Isla and the Happily Ever After (!!!!!!!!!) and that means it’s time to read Lola and the Boy Next Door!

If you’re new to the readalong, here’s the deal: Judith, Jamie, Lindsey, Andi and I have put together a read/reread of the series in preparation for Isla’s release (and also because these books are cute as all hell and totally worth a read for whatever reason). It’s all pretty laid back, we don’t have specific daily goals or anything though we are trying to finish each book in a week. We’ve got a bunch of fun posts lined up (see the schedule below) and be sure to join in on twitter with #IslaIsComing for a bunch of awesome giveaways and general fangirling over the books.

For those of you that are reading Lola for the first time, here’s what you’re in for:

Title: Lola and the Boy Next Door
Author: Stephanie Perkins
Publisher: Dutton Books
Add it on Goodreads.

Katie Finn_Gina Marie Stock

So a few months back I went to a Fierce Reads signing — as one does — and the super cute Katie Finn, author of Broken Hearts, Fences and Other Things to Mend, was there. We got to the question and answer section and Andye from Reading Teen mentions writing with different aliases. I don’t remember what Katie’s response was because I was in the midst of a WAIT WHAT moment. So naturally, I interrupted the panel and said, “WAIT. I’m confused. WHO ARE YOU?!” She smiled sweetly and said, “Morgan Matson.”

To be honest, I didn’t believe her at first. I mean, how could this have gone on for so long without me knowing?! Then my blogging buddies were all, “Uh, yeah, Steph. It’s her calm down, you’re making a scene.”

So I went to Twitter to see if I were the only one to not know this, ya know?

A Shade of Vampire

I went into this book like a person between jobs, bored of their last venture and not yet ready to dive into anything too serious. I knew exactly what I was getting myself into and my expectations were appropriately set for mindless entertainment. I know this may seem like a strange thing for some people and I’m sure many would wonder why I decided to read a book I was sure to dislike. The simple explanation would lie somewhere between “Because I felt like it” and “Because I paid for it.” But for those of you who aren’t as easily pacified, I’ll say this: Reading books like this is like inviting your friends over for a night of popcorn, ice cream and really, really terrible horror movies. It takes itself so seriously, that you can’t take it seriously. And instead of scaring you, the intentional outcome, it has the reverse effect, providing you and your friends endless fodder for punch lines to new jokes and puns equally as terrible as its source material.


You ask, we answer! This is our new weekly feature where we pick one or more questions from our readers, open the Cuddlebuggery Vault of Secrets and share the goodies with you. Or something. These questions can range from completely random oddities to semi-personal. We promise to try to answer them all while staying within our comfy bubbles. Pinky swear! If you’d like to ask a question ask them in the comments.

This week comes from Shanelle of The Art of Escapism.

Who’s the real boss around here? Yeah, yeah, you’re co-bloggers and all but who manages and coordinates with everybody? And how does she go about doing that?


Immediately when we saw this question, Meg and Kat laughed and said, “Steph.” But it’s not so much that I’m the boss, because I don’t think of myself as such. I’m just the most bossy of us, something that I’m sure annoys both Kat and Meg.
