It's hard to believe, but we're getting ready for our 3rd Annual Verse Novel Week! This year's week of celebrating all of the awesomeness of our beloved verse novels will once again take place in the last week in April, starting on April 28th.

We've already got an extra-special podcast episode planned with an extra-special Guest of Awesome and we're spotlighting some wonderful verse novels from a number of genres. As we did last year, we're opening up Verse Novel Week for guest contributions. 

So, if you'd like to write about your favorite verse novel, sign up to read a verse novel for the first time or if you're a verse novelist, fill out the form below and we'll be in touch to coordinate!

Announcement: New Commenting System

Hi all! Just a quick post to our lovely commenters. I am really frustrated with some loading issues and other annoying stuff related to Disqus, so I'm testing out the native blog commenting system on my content management system (which I can easily manage from my phone). 

Please let me know if you have any trouble.

Elsewhere: Listen to Us on on Chronicles of Crotty

Laura and I are invading your ears all over the internet lately. Our Twitter friend Rey invited us to be guests on his podcast, Chronicles of Crotty.

Now, I need to warn you: this is a sports podcast. However, in true Laura and Sarah fashion, we managed to veer waaaaaay off-topic. So if you want hear us talk about the Pacey Witter Theorem, the awesomeness of the movie Battleship, Sir Mix-a-Lot and our stance on the short-sleeved basketball uniforms known as "shirseys," tune in over here!

Help Us "Ask Judy" (Blume)

I was thrilled when the lovely folks working on spreading the word about Judy Blume and her son Lawrence Blume's upcoming film Tiger Eyes approached me about interviewing Judy on Clear Eyes, Full Shelves. 

Y'all know how eagerly I've anticipated this movie, since it's adapted from my favorite book as a teen. (I wrote about it earlier this year.) In addition to my coming up with the questions for Judy (I have a couple in mind), I thought it would be fun to throw it to you guys for suggestions about what to ask, particularly about the Tiger Eyes film adaptation.

Here's the film trailer, for a bit of inspiration.

To thank you for your fabulous questions, I'll draw one random commenter who suggests a question on this post who will win a copy of the movie tie-in edition of the novel Tiger Eyes. If you live in a country The Book Depository ships to, you'll eligible to win. 

(Standard disclaimer: this giveaway is sponsored and paid for by Clear Eyes, Full Shelves, and has no affiliation with anyone else.) 

Tell us what you'd ask Judy Blume in the comments by midnight Pacific time, Sunday, May 26.
