10 Reasons Why The Raven Cycle is Awesome

 

I recently (last night) finished the amazing series that is The Raven Cycle, and I have to say, I wasn’t completely in love when I finished reading the first book, especially because that last line really confused me, (and yet now that I’ve read the whole thing I absolutely ADORE that last line).

But.

I became more and more in love with the books as I read and at the end I swear to you I was talking and screaming at the characters TO BE CAREFUL AND DON’T GO IN THERE ON YOUR OWN GANSEY MY BABY because that’s how much I care, now. There is no going back.

And if that doesn’t convince you to pick up this series already, here’s 10 reasons why it’s absolutely awesome. Continue reading “10 Reasons Why The Raven Cycle is Awesome”

Favorite Books and Blogs of the Summer

WHERE DID SUMMER GO THERE’S NO WAY IT’S SEPTEMBER.

I’m not ready for September.

September means it’s almost October and that’s when my book Devonna is released, people. That can’t be this soon.

That being said, I didn’t read as many books during the summer as I would’ve liked, but it was still a great summer, and I discovered a bunch of awesome bookish bloggers. So here they are. Let’s spread the love!

My Publishing Journey – 2 Months from Release

Hi folks!

As you may know, my book Devonna is coming out in October and I thought I’d share a little bit about how the publishing process is going so far in my journey. What the publishing house (Evernight Teen) required of me and stuff like that.

I just figured this is the kind of post I would’ve liked to read a couple of months back to know what to expect, because right now I live in a bubble of unexpected emails and requests and it is MAKING ME REALLY ANXIOUS.

But somehow, I manage. (Because I must manage.) (And, yes, this is a The Office reference because The Office is life.)

5 Worst First Chapter Pet Peeves

Lately, I find myself starting a ton of new books and starting new ones before I finish them, and I realized that’s because for me, first chapters are CRAZY IMPORTANT.

If you don’t hook me in the first paragraph of your book, or at least the first chapter, there’s a good chance I’ll start reading something else, because let’s be real: this ain’t 1895 with only 5 fiction books at the library, folks.

THERE ARE TONS OF BOOKS OUT THERE, PEOPLE, AND I GET ANXIETY ATTACKS WHEN I THINK I WON’T BE ABLE TO READ THEM ALL.

That being said.

I’ve gathered my five worst first chapter pet peeves that will probably make me start reading something else when I come across them, and here they are.

Summer Goals Book Tag

Here’s the thing.

I took the summer off work to write 3 books and read 1000 books and travel everywhere and of course like always I set myself WAY TOO MANY GOALS AND I’M SLIGHTLY FREAKING OUT BECAUSE GUYS, JULY IS ALMOST OVER?

How?

Why?

Really how?

So I figured the best thing to do would be to play a game and pretend everything is all right. (I live in constant denial. Cheers to that.) Continue reading “Summer Goals Book Tag”

something good

i think of summers so free and wild i couldn’t hold it in

i acted precisely as i felt the second i felt it

and i never gave a damn

what they might think of me

 

i loved the absolute knowledge i bathed in

that wherever i spent the night escaping

fuzzy drinking madly dancing

i could end up in your arms

and they’d be warm and open Continue reading “something good”
