BIG GIRL PANTIES by Stephanie Evanovich. Fortunately, I was chosen to host this party for twelve people through House Party!
I ended up having nine of my friends (plus me!) at the party, although the photo above is missing my sister and her friend. Since Harper Collins provided hardcover books for everyone a few weeks ahead of time, I was able to hand out the books as my friends RSVPed and almost all of them got the book read by the party! I also received items for goodies bags, a recipe for a themed drink called The Big Girl Panty-Dropper, and a reading guide with discussion questions. However, the highlight of the evening was a video chat with the author Stephanie Evanovich.
At 8:00 on the dot, Stephanie appeared along with her editor. Both were a hoot and it was apparent that there was a very fun party going on in the background -- a woman dancing, a shirtless guy, etc! We thought Stephanie and her editor were extremely fun and very open with the Q&A part of the chat. I was lucky enough to be one of the viewers whose question was read out loud! Needless to say, I was excited... and my friends were quite impressed. HA!
