James Patterson’s Private Series

The books from the Private series that I won from twitter came today. It does not include the new book, Private L.A. Nonetheless, I am so excited because I love James Patterson books. I have not read the books yet but can’t wait to start it. I need to finish the book, Enders, that I’m reading now and then finish 11th Hour which I started in November but never finished. Once these are done I will get started on these books and post about each book that I read starting with Enders.



James Patterson’s Private Series

I am a huge fan of James Patterson. I love reading his books especially the Women’s Murder Club series and Alex Cross series. He has a series called Private. I bought the first book in the series but have yet to read it. Today the sixth book in the series comes out. It is called Private L.A.

For the past week James Patterson had a contest on Twitter where you can enter to win the whole Private Series of books. There was only three winners who will win the whole set of books. What the contest required was retweeting five clues.

James Patterson’s first tweet was on February 3 and he said “RT all 5 clues for a chance to win the Private series 3 winners, US +CN only. I’ll tweet next clue’s location tomorrow.” There was a clue in this tweet that said “For the past nine months, the Harlow family had been living in Vietnam, where they had been making a film, Saigon Falls, an epic and tragic story of love and intrigue that unfolds in the last doomed years of the American war. #FindTheHarlows” you had to RT this tweet.

The next day, February 4, James Patterson tweeted “Today’s #PrivateLA clue is at @littlebrown. Rat all 5 clues this week to win the Private series. 3 winners, US+CN only. #FindtheHarlows” You go to @littlebrown twitter account and you find a tweet that says “Today we’re hosting @JP_Book’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt! RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! US+CN only.” There was a clue in this tweet that says “‘How do you know they haven’t just gone off somewhere on vacation?’ Mo-bot asked. ‘Because TMZ or one of the gossip sites would have found them,’ Terry Graves said. #FindTheHarlows” You RT this tweet.

The next day, February 5, James Patterson tweeted “Head to @GrandCentralPub for today’s #PrivateLA clue. RT all 5 by Friday for a chance to win the Private series. 3 winners, US+CN only.” You go to @GrandCentralPub twitter account and you find a tweet that says “We have a clue from @JP_Books’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt! RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! (US+CN only)” There was a clue in this tweet that was the same as before. You RT this tweet.

The next day, February 6, James Patterson tweeted “For today’s #PrivateLA clue, go to @HachetteBooks. Only one more clue left, RT all 5 to win a set of Private books. 3 winners, US+CN only” You go to @HachetteBooks twitter account and you find a tweet that says “Today we’re hosting @JP_Books’s #PrivateLA scavenger hunt. RT all 5 clues to win 1 of 3 Private series! US+CN only” There was no clue in this tweet. You RT this tweet.

The last day, February 7, James Patterson tweeted “Final #PrivateLA clue. If you’ve retweeted all fives clues you could win 1 of 3 sets of Private books. US+CN only. There was a clue in this tweet that says “There is someone who claims to have seen Jennifer and Thom in Mexico the day before yesterday, very, very drunk. #FindTheHarlows” you RT this tweet.

Anyways, since I love James Patterson’s books I retweeted all five of these tweets. Then today I get a tweet from James Patterson that says “Congratulations, you’ve won the Private series. Please DM your mailing address.” Since he wanted me to direct message him my address he had to follow me on twitter. I am so excited because he is following me on twitter and because I won the book series. This is only the third time I have won. I won the book ‘Twas the Jordan Knight Before Christmas’ from Jordan Knight. I’ve also won a Webkinz plush pet with code from Webkinz through a twitter contest. I’ve entered contests to win Secret Life of the American Teenager season 1 dvd, iPad 2 with Secret Life of the American Teenager season 1 episodes on it, iPod shuffle, a chance to be one of four girls serenaded onstage by 98 Degrees at the Package Tour concert in Chicago, iPad Air, iPhone 5C, 98 Degrees Package Tour merchandise, Sing-Off tour tickets, a set of Big Time Rush merchandise, airfare plus cabin to New Kids on the Block cruise, tickets from radio station to an NSYNC concert and name plate of Nick Lachey from dressing room door from when he was on one of the talk shows on TV but I never won. I played bingo when I was little at school’s gym but didn’t win anything. I was never lucky until now.

I just hope this book set will include the last Private book, Private L.A. that came out today.



New Layout and Scrapbooks

I am currently a fan of a group called The Filharmonic. I am absolutely in love with them. I listen to their music everyday. As of lately, I am always on Twitter tweeting about them. For these reasons I have decided to make a new layout featuring The Filharmonic. In the process of doing so I found that my scrapbooks were not loading.

The reason for this was that over a year ago the website Scrapblog, the website where I had my scrapbooks, were bought out by Mixbook. In this process I had lost all my scrapbooks. I then spent the whole day searching online for images and recreating the scrapbooks. They should all be working except for one. I’m hoping to have this done sometime this week.

I hope you all like the new layout and enjoy the scrapbooks. If you do not like the current layout you are free to change it. By all means I will not be offended. There are six to choose from and I hope that you can find one that you like.
