Perhaps you may have noticed that Song of Sorrow (my novella that is a prequel to Rapunzel) was published on Friday. Here's the cover, because I love it. Luuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeee it, if you will. When I was on vacation at the end of November, I decided to cram in a round of NaNo. That's right,… Continue reading This is how it all went down. . . and cover reveal.
Oh that's right me. I'm pretty sure I'm writing this. . . Life. Life. You know? Life. So for quick, emotionless updates. On being a foster parent: it's hard. On being a daughter: it sucks to have my parents across the country. On being a mommy: awesome. Conflicting I know. But that's how you know… Continue reading Who is this now?
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Recommended? Yes. Super fun. But, um....duh. The New World by Patrick Ness. Recommended? Yes, if you like and have read The Knife of Never Letting Go. The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Recommended? Yes, though the whole (SPOILER) sex change thing at the end was unexpected and weird. The Ordinary… Continue reading August Reads
Now that I have Boyo at my house, my 3-year-old foster son, I have an exciting new way of splitting my TBR. The print reading for me, the audio reading for me, and the print reading for Boyo at bed time. The first time I put him to bed, I decided to try a chapter… Continue reading September TBR
Do you remember my TBR list? Here it is again if you don't. Did I finish it. Please. As. If. No. No, I didn't. But, this is what I did read and whether I recommend them: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. Recommended? Yes. It's a fun little story. I'm planning to work… Continue reading July Reads
So, I keep seeing these lists of people's top ten books so far. And I thought, hey! I wanna do that... Here it is. I will start by saying I totally cheated with Maggie Stiefvater. I've loved all of her books, and I included them in one entry. Cause that's just how I roll. These… Continue reading Top Books of 2013….so far.
My mom told me yesterday that she looked at my TBR for July. Then she bwahahahahahah'd. Fair enough mumma. But you can shut it. And also, I know. I'm not going to make it through all of them. But I will be choosing from that giant list. Currently reading The Book of Mormon, Moby Dick, Macrieve, and The… Continue reading Moms!
I was going to make myself read the rest of my TBR pile for June before letting myself pick up this one. A sort of saving the best for last, having my cake, eating it, whatever. But when I picked up my copy, I saw how little it was, and I ran my fingers over… Continue reading Book Review: The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Back again for our new round of hero vs hero. Literary crush vs. literary crush. Captain Blood has, so far, taken the win for the first two rounds. Captain Blood: once a slave then a pirate then a ... what it a governor? Something like that, but ultimately, Captain Blood is the lover of his… Continue reading Hero vs. Hero: Captain Blood vs. Archie Goodwin
This whole To Be Read thing has been interesting. I have jumped ship twice on my goal. I was lured away by The 5th Wave and then picked up Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Now I'm not done with my list yet, but I've been thinking how its been surprising that it wasn't that hard… Continue reading The To Be Read Experiment…
