Room 7609: Introduction

There's an all night party in room 7609...

I'm starting up a new meme on my site. Room 7609 will happen on most Fridays. I shall post some fun finds (book-related) I've found during the week to share with you. If you're up late, maybe you can post a fun find too and send me the link in comments or just comment with the fun find.

At the end of the month I'll tally up the commentors and use to pick a winner for a book giveaway. The winner will receive a book from the Room 7609 bookshelves (selection to be announced).

Alright, let's party...

Remember my contest entry post on Team Vampire Lumberjacks vs. Team Werewolf Bootleggers?

I didn't win this contest but had a BLAST with it. And now, I am excited to give this series a read. Who could resist the fun tagline on the Moira Rogers site - where things go BUMP and GRIND in the night ;-D

Anyhoo, this series is a paranormal romance - beware - the hot kind. I'll let you know what I think after I read the first book.


Remember my contest entry post on Hansel and Gretel and Brains last month?

Well the results are in --> I was one of the winners!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Journal - Chronicle Books (pictured above)

  1. Neat idea. I'll try to make note of any "fun find" this coming week.

  2. Way to go, V - a HUGE congrats on your win!!!!! Your Hansel & Gretel & Brains is just super, would make an awesome poster :D lol
    And your Room 7609 - I like the idea and will see if I can find anything neat to contribute :)

  3. Congrats on your win!
    And yay! The werewolves won!
    As for the cool price pack you won: I must say I'm a little bit curious about S,S&S, but the Mansfield Park mash up is on my wish list.

  4. Congratulations Velvet! :)
    I'll wait for your review of Moira Rogers' series. >_<
    Fun finds this week? None, unfortunatley.

  5. I also participated in Moira Rogers' epic battle between vamps and werewolves, and yep, our team, the werewolves won! yay! It was such a fun contest/promotion :-D

    I haven't read any Jane Austen mash up, bu8t I'm curious. I wonder if because I'm a huge JA fan these zombied versions will horrify me or ifr I will like them for the fun twist they took on the original novels. we'll see, I'm curious to read your thoughts on them! :-)
