Who loves Stranger Things??

So, anyone who knows me knows that I am just a tad addicted to the Netflix original series, "Stranger Things". I am beyond excited for season 2 to come out next month. (It is slated to hit Netflix 10/27/17)

I've been doing #30DaysOfStrange on my facebook and twitter accounts to celebrate getting ready for the release of season 2.  I thought it would be fun to do it here as well. =)

So, my first question posed was:

Who is your favorite character from the show??

This was a little more difficult in some ways for me to choose than I expected, given I think the entire cast is remarkable, especially the kids. But when all is said and done, I have to go with my first instinct and choose Eleven (or 011 or El) because she is just bad-ass while still having a sweet innocence about her.  This girl has moxie. And she stands up against bullies. And her cool powers don't hurt either.

I want to be Eleven when I grow up.

What about you?? Who is YOUR favorite character and why??? Sound off in the comments.

Til next time, remember, being strange is cool. ;-)


My day today?

We've all had "ONE OF THOSE DAYS", right?? (please say "yes") =)

This is how I"m feeling about now, how about you??

For my part of the hunt, I am giving away a signed copy of THE SOCIETY as well as a signed bookmark and a Society pin. 

Welcome to Trinity Academy’s best-kept secret.

The Society.
You've been handpicked by the elite of the elite to become a member.
But first you'll have to prove your worth by making it through Hell Week.
Do you have what it takes? It's time to find out.

  Samantha Evans knows she’d never get an invite to rush the Society—not after her dad went to jail for insider trading. But after years of relentless bullying at the hands of the Society’s queen bee, Jessica, she’s ready to take down Jessica and the Society one peg at a time from the inside out.

 All it’ll take is a bit of computer hacking, a few fake invitations, some eager rushees… and Sam will get her revenge.
Let the games begin.

THE SOCIETY is a YA Contemporary that deals with issues like bullying, loss of family, betrayal, while still having strong friendship ties and even romance. The main character definitely makes some bad choices, but it's part of her learning who she is and getting where she needs to go. Part of the book actually takes place this time of year, and Sam attends a masquarade party with her best friend, Jeremy. It doesn't go as planned. At all. It goes about as far from planned as you could ever....ever.....hope. Kids lives are in critical danger. And it just may be Sam's fault. Maybe revenge is never the best idea after all.
