Cool YA Stuff You Should Know About

Okay, not saying I'm cool. I only know this stuff because other people told me. But in case I'm not the last person on earth to know:

John Green has a Tumblr in which he answers questions about The Fault in Our Stars. Do not go there unless you've read the book. Super-spoilery! But fascinating.
The password to the site is the last word of the acknowledgments.
If you gave your book away or returned it at the library, let me know and I'll put the password in comments.






Yesterday I was tweeting with Amy about Hunger Games tickets. Last night  LiterallyJen emailed me with this update on the Hunger Games Facebook page. If you preorder your tickets there, you'll get a code redeemable in the iTunes store for a free download of a track from the Hunger Games album.

And if you live in (or near) LA, Seattle, Atlanta, Phoenix, Dallas, Miami, Chicago or Minneapolis, there's going to be a Hunger Games mall tour with the cast. There will be Q and A with the cast and a chance to win Hunger Games goodies.

And I don't live very close to any of those cities. So I am crying.

    1. *Cries* Like I told Amy, the person I promised to go to the movie with is on a flight that gets in that Friday at 1:30 am. WWKD? (What would Katniss do?)

    2. Hmm...I don't know what Katniss's response would be. What about WWPD? (What would Peeta do?)

    3. LOL! You're right. Peeta is the nice guy. He definitely would not go to the movie until Saturday.

  5. Thanks for reminding me about the TFiOS Tumblr thing! And yeah, I'm in the same boat, the nearest city on that tour to me is Atlanta, but it's still almost 6 hours away, so that's not happening:(

    1. Boo! Well, there aren't really malls where I live. So I guess I understand why the tour is avoiding me :(

    1. Do you need the password? Let me know. I should just put it in here but the book is all the way across the house and I am tired ...

  7. It seems I am the last to know. It is all pretty cool.

    I live in AUSTRALIA, so the tour cities are a tad out of my way.

  10. Love that TFiOS Tumblr. And I can't wait for The Hunger Games!!! My friends stood in line the other night for tickets. I live a few hours away from Dallas, but I don't think I'll be able to go to that mall tour. :(

  12. Thanks for the info! I thought about doing a girls' night for the Hunger Games movie, but all our husbands want to see it too. :( It looks like it will be a well-done film. I'm reading the book right now so that I've read it before I see the movie.

    1. I was thinking that Hunger Games really appeals to teens to adults, guys and girls.
      Hurry and finish the book :)
