It’s almost Christmas! It definitely feels like Christmas time. The red cups are out at Starbucks. The Christmas music is playing. There’s a slight breeze blowing in California. You know, typical Christmas time. And the best part about Christmas – you know beside the whole spending time with your family thing, I guess lol – is presents! […]

There are SO many amazing books coming our way this August but I’d like to share with you, today, the ones that I’m highly anticipating! I have read some of them but there are a lot I haven’t and I’m ready to read them. Check them out, add them to your TBR list, and share […]

So I was  browsing around Facebook yesterday when I came across a Buzzfeed article about the 29 Underrated YA Book Series. Of course I had to click on it. And while I love several of the choices on that list, I thought, I should do my own list. There are GREAT series on there, but […]

Now, this week’s Tuesday Top Ten is a little different than what I normally do. People often times ask me where I get my names for my characters, and honestly, it mostly comes from the baby name book or a baby name website. I like kind of…different names, not weird just different. But often, it […]

One thing that I have noticed in the past few years, especially in the last year, is that so many of the books that I enjoy to read have either been made into the movie or TV show, especially in the young adult genre. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Twilight, Hunger Games and Beautiful Creatures have […]

Today’s Book of the Week post is a little more unique than the others. Instead of reviewing just ONE book, I’ll be reviewing three, an entire trilogy. I’ve done that once before with the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie because I was determined to get people past the slower second book to reach the really […]

One of the best parts about running this blog is having the ability to meet some really cool people, and some of the coolest people that I have met have led me to really cool blogs. I’ve said it before, no one’s blog is 100% original but everyone’s voices are different so there are blogs […]

So I was talking with some of my friends the other night about books, of course, because that’s seriously what we do ALL the time (I’m looking at you, Tatiana, Sylvia, Paulina, Megan and Gabby) and we started talking about City of Bones because Paulina is reading it for the first time. (I know, right? […]

Well, that was quite a mouthful of a title. I did try to slim it down a bit but I’m afraid it just wasn’t going to happen. So I am afraid we are stuck with this extremely long title. Sigh. Oh well. Sometimes, you know, things just happen. So I’m actually writing this on Monday […]

One thing that I have always noticed about reading books is that the main character always seems to be a super awesome best friend…like a best friend that goes along with their crazy schemes and risks their life for them, is a shoulder to cry on but makes them laugh when situations seem absolutely unlaughable. […]

So a month ago when I met Cassandra Clare, I also met Sarah Rees Brennan and Maureen Johnson, who are besties with my Cassie. And they all had this great chemistry and you could tell they were super good friends and Sarah and Maureen were just cutting Cassie off all the time and making me […]

Its been a really good month to be a Cassandra Clare fan, especially in my boat. First, we had the release of the much anticipated final chapter in the Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Princess, which incidentally this blog post is about. Then Cassie went on a CP2 tour, mostly West Coast dates, one of which […]

Now, my blog is about being a nerd…and mainly focuses on my love of books, especially my big support for young adult literature. I keep most of my opinions and beliefs that are separate from books away from my blog, in order to maintain a balance, and not alienate any of my readers. But there’s […]

My sister and I are both book lovers. I have been a book lover my entire life, from the time I saw a small child. I think that I have mentioned before that my parents were kind of crazy and taught me to read at a pretty young age. So I was always a good […]
