Ushering in a new year can be refreshing, but it can also be stressful.Between resolutions, readjusting to work/school schedules, and the post-holiday blues, January can be a bit of a rollercoaster.But one thing we always look forward to in the new year is the annual lists of “most anticipated” books!Here’s a roundup of such lists to help you get a jump start on your 2019 TBR stack. So cheers to a new year and new books!
Burger King recently took advantage of proximity targeting for a genius ad scheme designed to troll their largest competitor. The promotion “works by geofencing McDonalds locations across the country,” Burger King said in a statement. “If a guest is inside one of these geofenced areas and has the new BK App on their device, the app will unlock the WHOPPER sandwich for a penny promotion.”
It’s December and you know what that means… holiday literary links!
I’ve bought seven books this year for friends and family. Everyone knows I’m the girl who will be gifting books. I can’t help it! Are you looking to gift a friend a book too but not sure what to get? The Cut published The Best Books to Buy for Every Type of Friend. From the friend who has mastered the binge watch to the friend who live-streamed Princess Eugenie’s wedding (me), they’ve got you covered.
Here at AdBiblio, we’re huge fans of running both cookbook and children’s books campaigns, so this really was the best of both worlds! For the first time ever, America’s Test Kitchen brings their scientific know-how, rigorous testing, and hands-on-learning to KIDS in the kitchen! Somewhere out there, I like to think the next Gordon Ramsay or Martha Stewart has finally gotten their hands on The Complete Cookbook for Young Chefs, and is ready to take on the world – one recipe at a time!
There are a lot of great things about the holiday season, but one tradition we especially look forward to is the annual release of literary “best of” lists. If you’re like us and always looking to add to your TBR stack and/or shopping for some bookish gift ideas for the holidays, please enjoy the below roundup of “Best Books of 2018” lists from around the web! We hope you find your next great read!
While browsing Bustle the other day, I came across this article: 8 Reasons to Give the Gift of Poetry This Season. As it points out, there’s so many reasons to love poetry: it’s timeless, deeply personal, offers perspective – and so much more! I’ve long been a fan of poetry, even if I grapple with the meaning behind some of them (but I guess that’s part of the fun!). So, I was super thrilled when Simon & Schuster came to us to help promote the 2018 edition of The Best American Poetry.
There’s one children’s book in particular that has stayed with me: R.L. Stine’s The Abominable Snowman of Pasadena. I can honestly say I think this is the only “horror book” I have ever read. I suppose it has stayed deep in my terrified 9 year old mind for so long that I haven’t picked up another one since! And while I may not be one to curl up at night and devour a scary story, I know plenty of people who love the genre. In honor of Halloween this month, we’re sharing ways we can help you reach horror readers!
I’m currently in a very Sci-Fi / Fantasy mood. Next week I’ll be heading to NYCC in my new “Never Forget Barb” Stranger Things T-Shirt (pictured below). I just started binging Maniac on Netflix (so weird, but so good). And this week I finished the magical YA debut Children of Blood and Bone!
If there’s one bromance that has everyone talking, it’s between former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. So much so that the POTUS bromance has come to be known as a “BROTUS”. And now – the duo have come together not just as our favorite memes, but to solve mysteries! Move over Watson and Holmes,Hope Never Dies: An Obama-Biden Mystery is now on bookshelves. Working with Quirk Books to help them promote this fun & humorous thriller has been nothing short of an absolute blast!
Peg + Cat are back for another adventure! These adorably fun books about a young girl and her talking cat (spoiler alert) are based on the children’s book The Chicken Problem, which was published in 2012 by Billy Aronson and Jennifer Oxley. Since then, the series has become an Emmy Award-winning animated TV series. We were really excited to help Candlewick spread the word about the most recent book in the series, Peg + Cat: The Eid al-Adha Adventure!
