NA Slumber Party | 3:AM Kisses by Addison Moore

NA Slumber Party

Ready for some hair braiding, pillow fights, and sexy talk? I’m so excited to host our first NA Slumber Party with some fantastic ladies: Asheley from Into the Hall of Books, Betty from Book Rock Betty, Cassie from Books with Cass, and Kelly from Belle of the Literati.

So what does this mean exactly?

A few weeks ago we all decided to read 3:AM Kisses by Addison Moore together, and it was such a blast we decided to a) make it a regular thing b) share some of the fun with all of you. Every month, this feature will hop over to another blog with a new host and new book to drool over (or laugh along to).

3AM Kisses by Addison Moore

Over 150 emails later, texts, videos, and pictures… reading NA just became a whole lot more fun when you are sharing it with others. I haven’t laughed this hard in ages, and I know the girls will agree with me. 3:AM Kisses is about a college freshman named Baya who falls for her brother’s “off-limits” roommate. Uh oh, you know what that means. The book has gymnastics, sororities, short shorts, and a multitude of nicknames for, ahem, those private regions that it seriously rivals the thesaurus.

Just a warning; things get a little racy pretty fast.

Here are a few of the highlights:

NA Slumber Party Asheley from Into the Hall of Books 2

Asheley:  All of the 3:AM Kisses shenanigans take place at and around fictional Whitney Briggs University in the mountains of North Carolina – what should be the mascot of WBU? Make it sexy!

A: A Pirate. Argh!
C: Female coal miner -[& tatted up, duhhh ;)]
B: Definitely a COUGAR!
K: Sex Panther a la Anchorman…obvi
E: Bear for the Black Bear Saloon that Bryson and Baya work at. Grr?

NA Slumber Party Betty from Book Rock Betty

Betty:  Am I the only one that will never be able to listen to the song “Welcome to the Jungle” without giggling as a result of this book??

C: Bahahahah. No. But its okay, I started tally marks on my wall, btw.  Of course… it never goes past one but I play Welcome to the Jungle ………… at times now 😉 [This is a joke.]
K: Haha, I won’t now!! I’m adding this to Favorites playlist on my iPod immediately.
E: THIS was definitely a highlight in a very amusing scene, that is for sure.
A: Oh my gosh, that didn’t even occur to me but THANK YOU BETTY FOR CHANGING MY LIFE IN THAT WAY! Goodbye Guns N’ Roses, Hello 3:AM Kisses! Womp Womp.

NA Slumber Party Cassie from Books with Cass

Cassie:  Bryson talks about Baya’s “lime green eyes”. If you could have any array of eye colors in your mate, what [not-normal] color would they be?

C: Polka-dotted magenta. WHATTTUP!
K: Yellow: Betty and Asheley should know why 😉
B: Deep violet like Cole Holland from Alice in Zombieland!
E: I love some gray eyes. Can’t help it!
A: Purple! I looove purple. I also like red but that would be too freaky.

Kelly NA Slumber Party

Kelly: We now live in a dystopian society, words are few, because of this there can only be ONE name for a woman’s nether region, Baya is quite colorful in all her descriptions, which phrase or word to describe her private area would you choose for everyone to call it?

K: The Notorious VAG
B: …no comment.
C: The aforementioned Sweet Spot
A: Love Glove
E: Squeezebox

NA Slumber Party Estelle from Rather Be Reading Blog

Estelle: Recommend this book in one sentence.

E: Some serious fun and major sexy, 3:AM Kisses is a great book to kick back with.
A: Quick, racy, fun romance that makes you laugh – especially if you read it with friends!
B: A sex ed class like you’ve never experienced before!
C: Pure fun with a slice of Bry-Pie 😉
K: Fun, sexy, and hilariously colorful use of vocabulary to describe everything sexual.

Our favorite lines:

C: “Book camp!” Roxy sighs. “Is there such a thing?” “No clue.  But if there’s not, there should be.  It sounds like a great cover for just about any story– get it? Story?”

A: “Personally I’d like to see his Hardy Boys solve a few mysteries with my Nancy Drew.”

B: “The only notch Baya Brighton is carving in the one over my heart.”

K: I couldn’t pick just one so I narrowed it down to two. First– “I should have logged hours watching porn instead of reading Yates for Lit. It’s like I’ve got no fucking priorities.” Second– “I hear book boyfriends are all the rage.” ←-OBVIOUSLY!

E: “I double dog dare you to join me.”

How can we forget the refreshments?

Any closing thoughts?

C:  If you read this book, read with a friend and have your phone and email ready.  This was so much fun and I got way too many laughs out of reading with these girls! BUT in the end, I actually DID enjoy the book, too!  So, I’d say for the price, give it a go, girls!

B:  If you decide to read this…read it with friends.  TRUST ME. It is hilarious. It was a bit graphic for my taste… so if you aren’t down with descriptive sexy times, pass on this one.

K: This was some of the most fun I’ve ever had while reading a book. Reading it with some of my favorite book friends made it that much better.

A: I agree with what everyone says about reading it with friends – I’ve never laughed and texted and emailed so much over a book in my life, but that’s what made it great because we read it together! SO. MUCH. FUN. Also, if you take your New Adult really seriously, this one isn’t for you –  you have to just have fun with it!

E: With 3:AM Kisses, be prepared for mega-sexy moments, some laughs, and a whole lot of drama. Reading with these girls definitely enhanced the fun for me!

If you want to check out our next read, the NA Slumber Party is going to be checking out A Little Too Far by Lisa Derochers this month! Feel free to pick up your own copy and tweet us with your thoughts! (Cassie will be hosting next month’s NA Slumber party so be on the lookout for that in November!)

Ellice - Bahahaha, I have to say that you girls made me curious about 3:AM Kisses! I want to read it one now! I just commented on Kelly’s review that this book sounds a lot like Losing It by Cora Carmack (which I surprisingly really enjoyed!!). There was one scene in Losing It where Bliss’s (the MC) thoughts on the same topic had me rolling I was laughing so hard! Let’s just say that it involved someone hiding naked behind some shrubbery outside of an apartment building. Hahaha.

I LOVE this feature. Y’all come up with the best ideas. Heck, this sounds better than an ACTUAL slumber party. Can’t wait to see what y’all think about next month’s book 🙂

October 9, 2013 - 10:14 am

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - *gigglesnort*

WOW. This one sounds like…something else. But certainly something I’d be able to enjoy along with someone. I’m glad that’s how you ladies got to experience it.

Also, I will never view the word “squeezebox” the same way again. Thanks for that, Estelle. 😉

This feature is a BLAST! I love the idea. Thanks for sharing some of the fun! 😀

October 8, 2013 - 4:30 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - You girls are hysterical! What a fun way to share reading with friends. Looking forward to the reactions of next month’s NA slumber party…

October 8, 2013 - 2:58 pm

Addison Moore - Oh my gosh this was AWESOME! You girls rock! I’m super humbled you picked 3:AM Kisses as your group read. And I’m thrilled that you had so much fun with it. It sounds like you had as much fun with Baya and Bryson as I did. Thank you for making my day! xoxo

Leah @ The Pretty Good Gatsby - HAHAHA! I LOVE THIS!! I can only imagine how much fun this must have been! 🙂 I’m really looking forward to the next one.

October 8, 2013 - 1:49 pm

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - This looks like it was so much fun! I love that Cassie’s reading the racy book at work 😉

October 8, 2013 - 9:40 am

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - THIS IS ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE MOST FUN BOOKISH THINGS I’VE EVER DONE. EVER. IN MY LIFE. Thanks for hosting this month, Estelle! And for the fabulous ideas gals. And that book choice! And everything. Y’all are great slumber party pals! And I’m excited about the next one!
