Update & Turning 6

Update & Turning 6

Here I am! As you may have noticed (or not) I’ve been more MIA than usual, but I’m here with an update. Lucky you! Okay, so I usually slow down with the blog this time of year because it’s a mixture of busy and vacation time, so I let the blog rest. It also coincides […]

Body Image in Books

Body Image in Books

Okay, I need to discuss rant about something that’s really bothering me lately. It’s wonderful that there continues to be an increase of diversity in books, whether it’s ethnicity, sexuality, mental disorders, etc. I’m also extremely happy that body image is being tackled more often, especially in YA.

Happy Halloween 2016!

October went by in such a fast blur! It feels like Halloween sneaked right up on me. Yeah, there was the corn maze, haunted attractions & stuff, but it still doesn’t feel like we should be at the end of October already. Anyway … Happy Halloween! Say hello to Mike, who is probably behind you […]

Confession: I Need Order!

Confession: I Need Order!

Want to know what gives me hives? Reading a series out of order. I’ve gotten a little better over the years, though. It doesn’t bother me when it’s more of a companion series that you mostly find in romance. They tend to focus on different characters in each book, so it isn’t that big of […]
