Random Friday: With A Little Help From My Friends Edition

Hey and happy Friday!! I missed Random Friday last week. I really meant to get to it. I did. Before I knew it, it was Saturday though and whatevs. Let’s move on.

Last weekend Fiction Vixen celebrated it’s second birthday. I got all crazy and decided to give away a Kindle and a whole bunch of generous author’s pitched in to load it up with books. There is still time to enter so GO!!

Once again I’m a little light on Random Friday fodder so I asked my friends to help me out. Here we go.


Divide & Conquer

Samantha is looking forward to the fourth book in the Cut & Run series, Divide and Conquer by  Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux. It’s due out October 14th 2011 by Dreamspinner Press. Hopefully we can convince her to do a review here at Fiction Vixen.

Samantha also recommends that we all follow Alyssa Milano on Twitter. And really, why not? Her last name is a cookie. Win. (click the graphics)

Oh and do you follow  on twitter? I had no idea she had such useful tweets. Everybody should follow her! And I don’t say that just because I might have been a huge and faithful fan of Who’s the Boss. 😉


By A Thread
A little birdie told me (AKA Catherine) that there’s a hot new cover about. Here’s the new cover for By A Thread, the 6th book in the Elemental Assassin Series by Jennifer Estep. I am seriously loving it. The green and blue really look good.


Get More: 2011 VMA, Music

So who’s excited for the Hunger Games movie, raise  your hand!!  Amy pointed to this the “exclusive sneak peek” and by peek they mean and tiny glimpse. It will have to do for now. But I’m going to need more. Soon.

2011 MTV Video Music Awards - Show

Amy also called my attention to Pitbull’s performance at the VMA’s. We like the red pants Pitbull. We like. You should search out some footage though. Apparently this picture does not do his package err…I mean his performance justice. :)


Friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes. There’s just something about BFF’s realizing there is more and taking a chance. Someone on Twitter shared this awesome Friends To Lovers shelf at GoodReads. I wish I could remember who shared, but anyway take a look if you like F2L’s.


Want to see something funny? I thought, hey wouldn’t it be awesome to find a llama with a Kindle? It could happen right? So I searched “Kindle Llama” (image search) and came up with THIS PAGE.  The funny thing is, a large majority of images on that page are images from Fiction Vixen. Is it time to seek help? Naw. Sadly I found no Kindle Llama. This is my challenge to you. Find me a Llama with a Kindle.

That’s it for me folks!

    Ugh! I’ve only first Urban & Roux – what is wrong with me????

    Hunger Games – can’t wait.

    I loved Pit Bull at the VMA’s…his red pants totally rocked it :)

    I’ve got every book in Urban & Roux’s Cut And Run series but have yet to read the first one *eek* I’m also loving the new cover of Estep’s Elemental Assassin series, each on is in tune with the series and vibe…LOVE it!! 😀

    “By A Thread” oh yes I am totally loving this one too, my favorite part of the post though was the link to Alyssa Milano and the Hunger Games trailer. Partly because I too was and still am a huge fan of “Who’s The Boss” and hard to fathom that little Samantha is all grown up and now has her own baby boy. “Hunger Games” it now exciting to me because just finished the book a few minutes ago and now I understand why there has been so much hype, love Katniss and poor Peeta.

    Off to check out goodreads F2l’s shelf!

    I’m definitely going to check out the F2L list – thanks for the link!

    I’m not looking at anything HG movie related until I read the books. I don’t want anything influencing my reading experience :)

    I LOVE the new cover for Thread! Dang Jennifer Estep lucked out with the cover art for her series! They portray the awesomeness that is her series perfectly!
