Elphaba Lives!!!

So did you all hear about what the wonderful, marvelous, brilliant, Kat, of Sunshine and Lemonade is up to? She's started her 10 weeks of weekend giveaways! Isn't that awesome?!



What's really awesome is her first prize which revolves about my all time favorite book and play...is she in my mind?!Now there may be those of you out there that love the play and have been wanting to read the book....Word of warning....not quite the same story...but in my humble opinion a fabulous one!

I think I read this book for the first time in high school or may be early college....and I've read it 4 times since; such a great story. I was so excited to introduce it to my book club. The ruling was only a few people liked it...I personally don't think they "got" it...The club shortly disbanded thereafter...They just couldn't handle it I guess ;)
My friend Laura and I got sent to a meeting in NYC 2 years ago and had to go see the play....It was absolutely fabulous!



We had a private giggle about people who were going to run out and get the book....Were they going to be surprised or what?!


Okay, enough about my "Wicked" obsession....Kat, the wonderful, talented, generous, Kat is giving away the following: an autographed copy of "Wicked" by the author, Gregory Maguire and the "Wicked" soundtrack from the play. Whoa, here come the heart palpitations again...Well, unfortunately I have to tell you how to enter the contest that I NEED to win; go see Kat and leave a lovely comment about how I you want the prize (if you really must...you know if you want to mess with karma, that's on you). You can get extra entries by following Kat (hello, doing that since I started blogging!!) and then another entry for posting about the giveaways.

So my post after November 7th should be this:



If I don't, I might look like this....


You don't want that kind of guilt on you, do you?!

Jennifer said...

LOL--good luck Kelly! I hope you win!!

I've read the book, but not seen the play, although I really, really want to. If I win, I will give it to you! Ironically, I just got one of his other books (Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister) at the library today. Weird.

Kat said...

OMG...this is the best post about a contest evah! I like it better than mine :-)

I must tell you that I am kinda worried about the people who have seen the play but not read the book. They could be in for a HUGE shock. I soooo love this book. But...some people just have so many problems with it. I tried to get my book club to read it, too. No one could finish it...

I L-O-V-E me some Wicked! Went to NYC on my 30th birthday and saw the theatre production! Had chills the whole time and at one point I think I actually was lightheaded from being so excited! teehee I bought a defying gravity shirt while I was there but have yet to wear it - think I will have a boob job first, if ya get what I'm saying. Just doesn't seem right to wear a shirt with that saying right smack across a not-so-gravity-defying area. lol

p.s. Florida girl here too, came to ya from BATW

I've been wanting to read this book - but I want even more to see the musical! I've heard great things about it.

Good luck! (but I may have to compete against you)
;)

Swirl Girl said...

you sucked up to her more than I did....you win.

A few of the girls in my bookclub say the play and a few months later one of them picked Wicked for their book. Once you get used to the language in the book it's not bad at all and I enjoyed it.

I tried to read Son of a Wich though and I'm still not half way and it's been 2 years now. :)

Hippie Family... said...
