So I know I’m nearly twenty-five years old and I’m just a little bit too old for Santa Claus and Christmas lists. But that doesn’t really stop me from thinking of the really cool things I’d like for Christmas. So I made a short list of the things I’d like for Christmas. All nerdy, of […]

Some of you know what A Little Less than Famous is. Some of you don’t. So to be quick, I’ll tell you this: its my second full novel. My first one is called Another Chance for Summer, which is available as an ebook for Kindle and Nook. If you click above in the novels section, […]

Clockwork Princess, the third and final installment in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices series, will come out in bookstores in March of this coming year. The Infernal Devices series takes place about a hundred years before the Mortal Instruments series (though TMI came out first) and follows the story of Tessa, a Downworlder, and her friends […]

I both dislike and like midseason finales of shows. I like them because they usually wrap up some part of the story that has been conflicting since the beginning of the season but then they introduce something new that is a cliffhanger that literally leaves you going WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED?????? Which leads to […]

If it weren’t enough that reading is so much fun and teaches me and makes me happy and so on and so forth, it gives back. There are a billion authors out there that give back. J.K. Rowling fell on the list of Forbes richest because of the amazing amount of money that she spends […]

So this is the Thursday Three because it’s been a long time since I’ve written. I think I’m going to talk about more than three things though…. Its been FOREVER since I’ve written…a whole week! No Book of the Week, no Tuesday Three, nothing. I blame Thanksgiving…the food put me in a writing coma. Sounds […]

So a couple months ago (actually kind of awhile ago), I did a blog post on the hottest fictional boy characters. I’m a little boy crazy and I probably could have done more than eleven. But I managed to narrow it down. Unfortunately, I got some complaints from my small male audience, saying where is […]

Happy Nerd Thanksgiving! Now for those of you living here in the United States, I’m sure you know what this holiday is all about. I’m sure you dressed up in the paper costumes of Pilgrims and Indians back in first grade and you know, you know, just get to the turkey and the Black Friday […]

So, a few days ago, my good friend and awesome contributor, Jackie, did a short little post on her own website called “Fake Geek Girls-Cut the CRAP“. And it seriously got me thinking. Because I can totally see where she is coming from. I’m sure a lot of you have seen this meme before. And […]

So the Book of the Week post is a little late this week. Sometimes things happen you know. And I think I’ve been feeding you all some seriously awesome posts lately. I added an anime contributor, Hobie, and a comics contributor, Tabitha, and its been rad. Our darling Jackie was up for Book of the […]

Now, look, I like Twilight. I do. It was one of my favorite books for awhile there. Even though its written terribly and lets face it, Bella Swan is NOT the best role model out there. And the movies really really killed it for me for awhile there. But I saw this series to the […]

Thanks to my friend, Tanya, for that name. Its a badass way to describe what I’m about to talk about. Here’s the thing: It took me a long to come to terms with who I am: as a person, as a writer, as a daughter, as a sister, as a friend, as a girlfriend, as […]

Today in my children’s literature class, we had a lecture on young adult literature. And it was really super interesting. We all know how much I love YA literature. This is beyond obvious. So the class today was really informative and one that I definitely am glad that I didn’t miss. I mean, did you […]

It isn’t even Tuesday yet but I’m bursting with nerdy and fandom awesomeness. In just the last two days, I’ve experienced some super exciting things! There is just always so much going on and so much excitement. I think that’s one of the best things about being a nerd, is being able to get excited […]

You know, I’ve always known that I love books. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved books. I’ve been receiving books as presents from family and friends for as long as I can remember. I seriously would rather get a book or a gift certificate for books than anything else. I’ve always known. Just […]
