The interview seemed to be going quite well until the last question. And then things seemed to sort of…implode. Take a look. So basically what happened is this: […]

Now this is something that I’ve done before. I did this exact post for the Tuesday Top Ten on April 30th, 2013, so a good year and a half ago. In that nearly two year period, Ive spent a LOT of time reading new books. A TON of time. So, of course, my favorite YA […]

So there are two inspirations for today’s Tuesday Top Ten. One of them is that its the actual Top Ten Tuesday post over at The Broke and Bookish. So there’s that. Normally I stick to my own, but because I’ve been running out of ideas, I’ve been borrowing from that meme lately. But I also […]

 Well, its the end of the year, and what an absolutely INCREDIBLE year it was for books. Honestly, I am blown away from all the books that I managed to read this year. I dove even further into the world of book blogging and, by doing so, opened myself up to more and more book […]

Hi everyone! So I know I’ve already reviewed Winger by Andrew Smith, and that I’ve talked about it a lot in Tuesday Top Tens and it was this last week’s Fandom Friday, but I wanted to share a little more on it. Maybe you think I’m a little crazy, or biased, or I just need […]
