Tell Me Something Tuesday #12 + Announcement
|March 13, 2012||Posted by Cambria under Tell me something Tuesday|
Welcome to my weekly meme Tell Me Something Tuesday where I ask you something and you tell me the answer!! It’s as simple as that and I thought it would be a great way for all of us bloggers to get to know one another! So this is how it works: I post a question here on my blog and then i give my answer. I invite all the bloggers to take the question and post it on their blog with their answer and we can hop around and see what everyone says! If you are a blogger don’t forget to leave your link at the bottom of this post! If you aren’t a blogger – that’s okay too!! Leave your answer in the comments section!
Tell Me Something:
Have you ever participated in a Book club, buddy read or Read along?
I have done a few things like this but only recently! I recently did a buddy read of Hunger Games with a few people from GoodReads and right now I am participating in the Hounded Read Along. Banner is over there——————————->
I am really enjoying the read along. I have met some really great and funny bloggers that I wouldn’t have otherwise met and I am getting to share my opinion and thoughts about a book that we are all reading together! It’s been a really fun experience!
Sooooo, with that being said allow me to gracefully move into the second part of this post: A special Announcement.
The Masquerade Read Along!
So if you answered no to the TMST question here is your change to do something new! If you answered Yes to the TMST question then here is your chance to do something fun again!!
So what is a Read Along, you ask? (Awww, you ask such good questions!) I will tell you. A read along is when a bunch of readers and bloggers get together and read a book together (in this case it is my novel, Masquerade). Each week (for the month of April) we will be reading 8 chapters of Masquerade. Every week the host blog will be posting discussion questions and all you have to do is grab the questions and answer them! (there will be 5 questions each week) You will post the questions on your blog every thursday of the month of April. You will then link your blog to the host blog that week so we can all hop around and read each others answers!!
But that isn’t all!! Nope. There are going to be prizes!! Two prize packs will be up for grabs at the end of the month and whoever participates each week will be entered to win. (prizes listed below). In addition to the prizes I will be giving a FREE copy of Masquerade to every 10th blogger who signs up.

Grab the first week’s discussion Questions right now!
These questions along with your answers will be posted on Thursday April 5th. The host blog that week is Stephanie at Five Alarm Book Reviews (http://www.fivealarmbookreviews.com) so once you post your questions go to Steph’s blog and link up. She will also be posting week 2’s discussion questions so you can grab those too!
(Feel free to add pictures with your answers to make them extra fun!)
5 discussion questions:
1. If you were disfigured like Heven (by some sort of accident) do you think you would have reacted the same way as her? (loss of self confidence, hiding yourself, etc)
2. Do you think that Kimber’s plan for revenge against Cole (for kissing another girl) is a good idea?
3. In the beginning chapters, Heven is very drawn to Sam but won’t admit it due to her own insecurities. Kimber begins to “date” Sam… do you think that Heven should have spoken up? Do think Kimber should have seen Heven’s real feelings?
4. Masquerade is broken in four separate POV’s: Heven, Sam, The Hate and The Hope. Do you think having multiple POV’s adds depth to the story? Why or why not?
5. A great source of strength for Heven is her grandmother. Who do you think yours is/would be?
SIGN UP HERE FOR THE MASQUERADE READ ALONG!
Next weeks TMST question will be: Who is your favorite heroine in a book? (Okay, you can name more than one! LOL)
That will do it this week for Tell me Something Tuesday AND the Read Along announcement!!
