30 Days of Bloodlines: Day 28

It is our pleasure to be a part of the 30 Days of BLOODLINES sponsored by the fantastic women of Shadowkissed.com and Shadowkissed.net! Richelle Mead holds a dear and special part in our lives both as fans of really great books and as bloggers.  In fact, it was the cancelled stop of the Last Sacrifice tour in Minneapolis during Snowmageddon 2010 that sealed our destiny to become book bloggers.  It was on that day that six fan girls, one red wig, and twenty three inches of snow came together and formed the myth that is Fauxchelle Mead.  If you’re not familiar with Fauxchelle, we encourage you to read these posts to become acquainted with her before jumping […]

(It’s safe to say that this encouraged other crazy antics, like…oh… Team Kilt … for a small example).  In fact, our Fauxchelle experiences lead to our […]
