Life in Outer Space (Character Gift Exchange)

There’s nothing better than being completely charmed and surprised by a book. When I first opened Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil (a book I’ve had sitting on my shelf since May — I’m terrible), I had no idea I would fall for it so hard. It’s set in Australia (yay Aussie writers!) and […]

Alexa Y. - This post alone makes me want to read Life in Outer Space! I love all the presents you picked out for these two characters. I think I’ll like Camilla quite a lot because those gifts would be perfect for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lucy - I’m reading this book now and it’s so much fun! How cute is that camera. OMG! And the gifts from Camilla to Sam are spot on.

alice-jane - It’s really neat how you came up with presents for fictional characters. While I haven’t read LIfe in Outer Space, I definitely felt like I knew the characters a little better after this. The Polaroid camera is super cute! Apparently Hot Topic makes Doctor Who, Star Wars skirts and maybe they’d be a nice for Camilla if she ever gets into the movies with Sam?

MK - The idea of coming up with gifts for fictional characters to give each other is just the kind of nerdy activity I LOVE. Also, I enjoy your use of the term “a Dawson.”

VeganYANerds - It makes me so happy to know that you too loved Life in Outer Space. I did not want to leave Sam, Camilla, and the rest of the gang when I finished the book. I love the gifts you chose for them both!

Theta Sigma @ The Wandering Bookworm - Fantastic post.

This has been one of my fave books for this year, partly due to the YA element and partly down to the fact that I’m a geek.

Hope there’s a sequel. ๐Ÿ™‚

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Whoops, hit post before I was done :). I keep hearing great things about Beautiful Ruins, but the cover doesn’t excite me. Maybe the shiny version is better? Regardless, I look forward to hearing what you think, and all about BEA too!!!

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Your new glasses are super cute!

Tara @ Hobbitsies - Your glasses are super cute! And I had a lot of fun hanging out with you the other night – we should definitely see a show together next time I’m in the city! In the meantime, I’ve got my tickets to the Newsies tomorrow night ๐Ÿ™‚

Bookworm1858 - Cute dress! I can’t believe it’s almost June either-then it will be almost June 30 and that’s halfway through 2013, one of the fastest years ever in my memory.

Daphne - yeah, so, thanks for adding to my TBR. ๐Ÿ™‚
