How are you?
Its almost Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?
I am thankful for the successful opening weekend last weekend for the play I am acting in, my wonderful blogging friends, Richelle Mead deciding to have Adrain and Sydney both have points of view in The Fiery Heart and brilliant books.
Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
It is the perfect way to spread camaraderie to fellow book lovers.
Today I am waiting on:
Scandal by Lauren Kunze (Book 4!)
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: Feburary 26, 2013
ACCUSATIONS, ACCUSATIONS . . .
You know you're not the author of the "Ivy Insider" articles.
But how are you going to prove it?
Callie Andrews returns from spring break to find herself facing expulsion. Someone has framed her as the author of a series of anonymous articles vilifying an elite social club and now, unless she can prove her innocence, she can kiss her college education good-bye. So who is the Ivy Insider?
the girl who has had it out for Callie since day one
the guy who told her he loved her (at least she thought she heard that) but then he vanished in the middle of the night
his friendship supersedes his hatred for social clubs—right?
Callie's best frenemy
. . . or is it someone else entirely? Callie's made more than a few enemies during her freshman year, but can she count on her true friends—and the (missing, just-maybe-meant-to-be) love of her life—to pull through?

There are few times in my life where I completely escape from my reality (busy life) and live vicariously in another person's life for awhile. One is when I act on stage and the other is whenever I read the first three books in the Ivy Series. Others unforgettable books have come close to the Ivy Series's esteem but not completely.
Is it because of the series marvelous story?
Is it because of Lauren Kunze's stylish and sophisticated writing style?
Is it because of its captivating character interactions and miscommunications?
Is it because its surprising story directions into financial difficulties?
Is it because of Gregory Bolton, Mimi, Vanessa, Matt, Grace, Callie, Clint and OK?
There is no series I would recommend higher then the Ivy Series. It is one of the many reasons I started blogging after all. I was eagerly anticipating the third book, Rivals, so much last January (thinking about it everyday) that I figured blogging would be a good way to distract myself from the painful days awaiting the book. Blogging accomplished that need and more!
I am proud that my first review ever was written about Secrets, the second book in the series and my favorite book of 2011 because I began my blogging experience with a meaningful and life-loving book. I still re-read the Limerick scene wherever I have a chance, laugh at the hilarious one liners and marvel at Kunze use of literary techniques. The prisoner dilemma chapter in Secrets is also not one to miss!
So, I cannot recommend the Ivy Series enough. Read it!
I would love to chatter about its marvelousness with you!
My predictions for Scandal!
Sweet, beautiful and heartbroken Alessandra is the Ivy insider.
Gregory and Callie are finally going to be together.
I am going to fall even more in love with Gregory Bolton then I already am.
Evil Lexi is going to finally show her benevolent side.
Scandal is going to be as unforgettable as the first three books in the series.
I believe Scandal's green cover matching my blog design so well must be a sign!
Thanks for reading!
