Snippets on a Sunday

Sunday has arrived and with it lots of little things I have been meaning to blog about but somehow never got the chance. ABC Family has finally given us a glimpse of our cast and start date for The Pretty Little Liars series. It will premiere on June 8th.  I can’t say that having read them from the very beginning I would have picked this series for TV but it should be interesting to see what they do and how faithful they are to the series written by Sara Shepard. She absolutely has enough twists and turns to keep things moving for quite awhile. Don’t forget the next in the series, Wanted will  be out June 8th as well. The original publication date was June 29th but it seems they have moved it up to correspond with the debut of the TV series.  The poster for the show is quite intriguing especially if you know the series….I will watch and see if it’s worth it..will you?I have been disappointed in the past with book to TV but I always hope for the best!

Also coming up soon is BLOGMANIA in which I will be participating. I am very excited about the opportunity to visit so many new blogs and also to have new visitors here at Stiletto Storytime and of course how can you forget all the goodies up for grabs! I hope you will swing by Stiletto Storytime for a chance to win a few goodies.  Also here are you Early Bird Reminders for BLOGMANIA to get you all set to go! I will have a post up on the 30th with instructions for my giveaway as well as a review of the book I am giving away! Drum Roll Please….


Stiletto Storytime will be giving away a copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith, a custom book plate for your new tome and  a cool set of magnetic book marks. Also if I can get it done in time, they will also receive a one of a kind Stiletto Storytime bookmark. That’s right…stand back I am getting a little crafty around here! So make sure you visit on April 30th and follow the instructions on how to enter in the contest for the BLOGMANIA giveaway here at Stiletto Storytime!

And last but not least I would like to thank Cate Masters for my very first blog award. She has gifted me with the Happy 101 Award!
