Cool Girl: Author Kass Morgan (Win Her New Book!)

KassMorgan_lowres Guys, Kass Morgan's Homecoming, the third book in the bestselling The 100 series, which inspired the CW show, is out today (enter at the bottom of this post to win a copy of the book)! We sat down with the author, pictured, to talk about what she's hearting right this minute (and now we like her even more):

 Sephora lip stain. Unlike Taylor Swift, who mentions red lips six times on 1989, I like to put my lipstick on and then forget all about it. That’s why I love Sephora’s cream lip stain in “classic red.” It lasts through my early morning coffee, my late morning coffee, lunch, afternoon coffee, afternoon tea, early evening coffee, post work drinks, etc. And, if you can find someone who still wants to make out with you when you’re that wired on caffeine, rest assured, the lip stain will last through that as well.

 CitiBike. I’m obsessed with New York’s bike share program. Sure, the clunky blue three-speeds might attract an eyebrow raise from the mustachioed hipster cycle snobs, but Citibike is perfect for the girl on the go. I can ride to work over the Brooklyn Bridge without having to commit to biking home — which is great for those nights when a “quick drink” turns into dinner which turns into 2am karaoke. I also appreciate that the sturdy bikes are stiletto friendly!

 P.G. Wodehouse audiobooks. P.G. Wodehouse is the brilliant British humorist who created Jeeves and Wooster. His books are hilarious, and the audiobooks are even better. These stories were meant to be read aloud, and I can’t count the number of times they’ve made me laugh to myself like a crazy person. Once, my train was stuck in a tunnel for forty minutes, and I was actually glad as it gave me more time to hang out with my favorite bumbling aristocrat and his long-suffering valet.

 Hozier’s “Take me to Church.” I realize that everyone and their mother hearts this track, but I have to mention it because it’s become the theme song for my new project. The other day, I listened to it on repeat for hours while I wrote. No matter where I’m working — on a delayed plane, at a noisy coffee shop — the line “I’ll tell you my sins so you can sharpen your knife” pulls me right into my story.

 Ladies of London. I recently got hooked on this reality show that’s “Downton Abby meets The Real Housewives.” I don’t watch a lot of TV, but who can resist ogling the train wreck that ensues when three ditzy Americans visit the Earl of Sandwich at his country estate?

Thanks, Kass! And now... we have five copies of Homecoming to give away, so enter here:
