There's been a development here at Wastepaper Prose that I never actually thought would happen, and that leads me to my announcement. Well, our announcement...
And how we got to be where we are is kind of a funny story. It makes this whole "I now have another reviewer on the blog" thing even more surreal because of the fact that I did not meet Jes in the blogosphere.
|Our tiny Virginia high school.|
She graduated. Then I graduated and we never really heard from each other again until nearly 10 years later.
It happened last year when I saw a very enthusiastic tweet about the Caster series by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl. You know, Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and the forthcoming Beautiful Chaos? I replied to it because I love the series too. I had no idea until I checked the profile that it was Jes.
We've tweeted over the past year and a half, but still didn't become tight or make plans to hang out. Things changed about a month ago when Jes asked me if I had a copy of an upcoming book because she was desperate to read it and wanted to borrow it. Well, before I could stop myself, I said "Sure, and you can review it for the blog if you want."
She agreed, and we are one month and several books to the wind and we haven't tried to kill each other! Be on the lookout for her reviews and leave her some love.
