Wheeeeeeee! Look what arrived in my mailbox today!
A beautiful shiny new ARC of Daughter of Smoke and Bone,
the US edition from the fabulous Little, Brown.
I have been petting and whispering to it, opening up here and there to read a bit.
Also, it is making friends with its British cousin.
They were shy at first, but now they're all:
"No, you're beautiful."
In other news, I cannot stop with the Hipstamatic. It is a mania. Isn't this so pretty?
We went to a six-year-old friend's art opening tonight at a gelato parlor.
We bought an $8 work ("crayon on paper") entitled "Rain Falling on Monster Island."
Clementine went incognito.
Seriously. She kept her mask on the whole time.
Was revealed only later, in front of her very own bistro.
Yay for books and artists and gelato and wee superheroes!
(The evening may also have involved pizza. And, um, donut holes. What?)
