Happy Memorial Day, everybody!! I hope your weekend was full of friends, family, and of course, FOOD (preferably messy barbecue-style-food). Mine certainly was--I was in Lake George with three of my closest friends (I'll be posting about that later in the week).
For now I wanted to leave you with a fun start-of-the-summer gift: new music! This playlist--inspired, of course, by Before I Fall--is brought to you by the fabulous Samantha (who, ahem, awesomely shares a first name with my protagonist!). I met Sam at a fabulous event I did at the Voracious Reader in Larchmont with the wonderful Gail Foreman (see my post on it here). It was obvious she had an encyclopedic knowledge of music and had really connected to the book, so I asked if she would be willing to do a Before I Fall-inspired playlist. And she did!
Check it out, below. If you're like me, there's nothing you like better than being introduced to new songs. So check 'em out, let me know what you think, and if you send any song recommendations...for my book, or just for the love of summer...send 'em my way!!
Also, make sure to check back later in the week for my BEA recap. And in the meantime: Summer 2010!!!!! Let's make it a good one.
