Happy Birthday Ryke!

Ummm...yeah...so, you're probably thinking Ryke isn't really a happy person.  He's always brooding and he gives off that "angry" vibe.  

edit by +Lanie 

But today is his special day!  In all of the Addicted series books, we have yet to witness the gang celebrate his birthday.  But there are 3 books remaining (*insert very sad, tearful face here*), so perhaps we'll get a chance to see his birthday celebrated.  As adventurous as Ryke is, I was really hoping to have something equally as adventurous for his birthday on this post.  Alas, I couldn't come up with anything, unless I challenge you all to do something you never ever thought you would do in your entire life; such as, skydiving or bungee jumping (for me) *wink wink*

Yeaaaah.  I'm sure my wink is this awkward

However, if you're a member of Krista & Becca's Fizzle Force on Facebook, we do have something fun happening there.  If you're feeling creative, we are challenging you to create a meme in honor of Ryke Meadows.  Of course, we would love to see memes for anything related to the series, but we would prefer that it's related to Ryke (or Daisy, or Raisy) since it's his birthday we're celebrating.

Now, if you're like me and don't really know what memes are, here are a couple of examples created by +Lanie


The lovely +Lanie (a.k.a. Mauve Fairy) from Musings of the Book-a-holic Fairies, Inc. created a video to celebrate Ryke's birthday! 

(You can watch all of +Lanie's magical creations HERE).

In case you didn't notice, she's also the mastermind behind the wonderful edits on this post.  I seriously don't know how she does it all!!

If you haven't stopped by Krista & Becca's blog, be sure to drop by there.  I know they're also celebrating Ryke's birthday today.

(Nope. Sorry.  I hate to disappoint, but Nick Bateman isn't the prize)

Fizzle Force Buttons and New T-Shirts!

Hello Fizzle Force and all you lovely people visiting the Addicted Series Fan Page!  I am so excited I can hardly contain it!  I actually really wanted to post this news yesterday, but decided to wait till today to do it.

My super smart and very awesome friend Siiri from Little Pieces of Imagination, came up with yet another creative idea and I'm sharing it with you all!  As you may have read in my previous post, she and I put our heads together and came up with a button to show our love and excitement for the new fandom name, Fizzle Force.

Weeeeeeeell, she went a little further and made MORE buttons that you could grab and use and pimp out on your blog or however you wish to show your Fizzle Force pride!  They are way too cute and come in a variety of colors to choose from!  How flippin awesome is that!?  If you look at the right hand side of this blog, you will see I am proudly pimping out my Fizzle Force button :)  If you'd like to see the different colors and want one for yourself, click HERE

The other news that I want to share is equally exciting!!!!  In fact, I am fangirling like crazy over it right now.

Krista & Becca released their designs for the new t-shirts for each of the Addicted Series couple!!!


Pretty amazing right!?  Want one?  Get them HERE at the new Fizzle Force Shop!
