Do You Know Who This Is?



She's a clue as to which book will probably win this month's Smart Remarks book club election by garnering only two votes. But it's not over yet! Please let your voice be heard. Rock the Vote! Remember when all the celebs shoved the whole "get out there and Rock the Vote" campaign down our throats and it totally backfired and G.W. Bush was reelected by a landslide? That was hilarious. We showed them. The look on Meryl Streep's face...

Anyway, to those of you who have voted, I haven't seen this much waffling since I was a cook at IHop.

Please. Please. Please just pick a book. Even if you you don't care which one we read, even if you can't decide between two or three, just pick a book. Please. And then say "that's my final answer" and then your vote is locked in.

Reason for my hissy-fit:

I'm pretty sure if the book is chosen by only two votes, only two people will play Smart Remarks book club meeting with me (and Cristin).

Everyone else will use the old "didn't have time" excuse.
Do you realized you're saying that to the busiest person in America, btw?

The post below details the six book choices... isn't this fun? ::Hiss::

Oooo, I smell a controversy!

You can refer to me previous comment for my vote.

ajesplin said...

So sorry, but I had to delete Amanda and Mark's comments because they were vulgar. (and they mentioned something that I don't want really want to talk about--top secret--mums the word, OK?) Besides, I would never feed my fourth child to you bloodsuckers. Mark--hopefully you will be hearing from me very soon about "4th child". Be good.

ajesplin said...

By the way, Mark said he was voting for The Host. Final answer.

Amy Thurston said...

I am feeling up to a challenge, and therefore choosing "The Host". I will read it and just try to keep in mind that I won't like it until the second half.

Final Answer.

Next month I vote for Austenland.

Final Answer.

Now I am way ahead of everyone else. Only I didn't get why you posted that hot picture of that guy from In Livin Color.

Landeelu said...

I too am baffled by the photo but I guess I'll go with the majority and pick The Host.

I hate peer-pressure.

Final Answer.

PS You are nice to even let us vote. If it were MY book club I wouldn't give choices... I'd pick whatever the ayche I wanted. Again... St. Jenny.

Amy Thurston said...

Just so you know, Mark tried to take my third kid, so he is getting better.

Memzy said...

Is Saint Jenny preggers?

Mary said...

I'm sticking with "Austenland" even if I am out numbered. I can't believe Mark went with The Host after all that talk about his wonderful book. And now I must know what Amanda and Mark wrote that got deleted. Am I going to have another grandchild? Tell me quick!!!!

Landeelu said...

I'm thinking Miss Jenny has a novel in the works.

I'm perceptive just like Bella. If you read Midnight Sun you'd know what I was talking about. ::sticking out tongue::

Amy Thurston said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!

sarastrasser said...

I put in my vote on the last post but I will re-vote on this one (does that mean it counts as two votes?) My vote is for...........

sarastrasser said...

I just read the comments. Jenny, you were suppose to wait for me to get pregnant, remember??? We talked about September 2009. Does you word mean nothing anymore??!!

P.S. Congrats on the baby.

ajesplin said...

What is this, the gold rush? Stop speculating. (aren't my analogies or similes or whatever they're called impressive? maybe I should whip up a novel real quick.)

And I guess I should come clean and tell you that Mark didn't really vote for The Host in that comment I deleted. He voted for Sophy Whatever.

--St. Jenny

Amy Thurston said...

I just wrote in the margin of my book, "I know what Jenny's 4th child is".

Cristin said...

I'm soooo lost. Jenny are you preggers???? inquiring minds MUST know!

Landeelu said...

I hear Little & Brown is a good publisher... if you don't mind your manuscripts all over the internet.

ajesplin said...

I think you mean Little, Brown--not that I know anything about publishing. Groan, I feel sick, I'm gonna go get me some Saltines...

Landeelu said...

And I think YOU mean Little, Brown and Company. (I know how to work Google too, ya know).

You are a pregnancy tease! For shame!

ajesplin said...

Of course I used Google. What do I know about publishing? If I wrote a novel, I'd leave all that publishing nonsense up to my literary agent. Be right back, I gotta go pee in a cup...

Cristin said...

YAY Jenny! GRATS...that is of course if I correctly understood your subtle hints. :)

Sam, Shel & Co said...

I love reading everyone's comments on your blog, cracks me up. I'd add a witty comment myself, but usually Amy's already said it. We think so much alike. :0)

As for which book to read, I'm still reading the Twilight series. I'm sure I'm doomed to be about 2-3 months behind ya'll forever. I'm only in the 2nd book, which I like better than the first so far. Which is good.

So, I'll get to whichever book you end up picking sometime next spring. :0)

Amy Thurston said...

Um Jenny, are you in the mood for a pickle? You could dip it in some mint'n'chip ice cream. Is that sounding good to you?

Markie23 said...

I'll be good I swear!

Katie or Tom said...

Jenny, It's Tom. We are packing right now and I need to know if you still want Atticus's old crib, stroller and our collection of half used Desitin tubes. Let me know, you're not answering your phone.

BTY
my vote is for Hostland by Shannon Meyer

Blog Stalker said...

I AM JOININ THE BOOK CLUB AND I WILL PICK ANY BOOK JENNY RECUMENDS. I HAVE BOT A COPY OF THE HOST, CAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE WHAT JENNY LIKES. I WILL START TONIGHT. CAN I HAVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER TO CALL AND WE CAN TALK BOUT STIFF, I MEEN STUFF LOL

Krissy and Jason said...

I feel like i am jumping in to a conversation where i just don't quite belong...but i will throw my two cents in anyway! My vote is for the Host because i have already read it! (and because i am dying to read a jenny review on this particular book) maybe i will have some smart remarks of my own, you just never know.
