Our Cold Cereal Celebration
Hello Fantasy Lovers,
We even invited our namesake Mr. F to join us for some cereal. He gladly joined us continuing his complaints about Mick’s back story and the history of GoodCo. AFFL members seemed to be somewhat divided on whether they agree or disagree with Mr. F. I am not divided at all, I love the back stories and understand their importance to the overall arc of the trilogy.
The majority of our meeting was just eating and talking and generally enjoying each others company.
Now the big challenge was seeing if any of our members would be willing to try the Milk – 7.
A few took the Milk – 7 challenge including Matthew who explains a bit of the experience here…
Toward the end of our feast Mr. F asked what book he should read next and gave us the choice between Unlucky Charms and Under Wildwood. That lead to crazy debate and no clear choice, so we offered up another AFFL book from last year that did bring us all to consensus… The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. Although Mr. F is already calling it the Fresh Prince? He did admit that he actually has enjoyed reading the few fantasy novels that we got him into this year, so I see our AFFL challenge of pushing fantasy books out there and fighting Mr. F’s strange fantasy loathing nature a success for the year.
Thanks for a great AFFL year. See you back here after our summer track out near the end of July.
PS. I sent a few Twitter messages to Adam Rex sharing with him what we were doing. Check out his responses.
@hutchinsonjm Feel like I ought to tell you what happens to all the kids who drink that stuff in the third book.
