#PitchWars Bio Hello! Earlier this year, I decided to be ready for #PitchWars in August, and hopefully land a mentor to help bring my book to the next (needed) level. Before we get into my book and why you should pick me, here’s a little about me… I just turned 31 and I don’t think I ever imagined I could be this old. I mean, I can remember my parents turning 30…forever ago. And now that’s me. I’ve been married… Keep Reading

Happy Moving Day! Oh, you’re not moving? Just me then. Well, happy Saturday to you then. Since I don’t have more than 3 minutes to sit and post something, I’ll be quick. But this was awesome news. Did you know that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han is going to be a movie?!? Are you as excited as I am? I read this article yesterday and squealed. What do you think? Awesome or not?
Louis Tomlinson, of One Direction, has a song coming out tomorrow and released this video today. So much in the video makes me question what was on purpose and what the real meaning is. You have to watch/skip to the very end to even hear a glimpse of the song, but I can’t wait for tomorrow to hear the whole thing. What do you think of Louis’s solo venture?
Are you a True Bookworm? From Buzzfeed I came across this quiz yesterday and of course I had to see how many books I’ve read. Unfortunately, I’m not a true bookworm (45/66 apparently, their rules, not mine). I’ve read 28/66 books listed. What about you? How many have you read?

Top 5 Wednesday Today’s #T5W is about Children’s books. You can see more posts and topics on this goodreads thread. Favorite Children’s Books A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle I recently re-read this book to my own children and it’s definitely a classic in my book. It’s got so many levels that you almost don’t catch them all with one read through. To quote my then 7-yr old (or maybe 6… I don’t remember) “It was kinda weird.” Haha…. Keep Reading
Book Review My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows Hardcover: 494 Pages Genre: YA, Historical Fiction, Fantasy My Rating: 3.5/5 stars Synopsis: Edward (long live the king) is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown… Jane (reads too many books) is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately for… Keep Reading
