Review: “The Moon and More” by Sarah Dessen

1. It perfectly captured Emaline’s conflict of wanting to leave and wanting to stay and the temporary vs permanent nature of her life.

Dessen’s main character, Emaline, has graduated from high school and is ready to move on, but she doesn’t really have any goals or any particular opinion on college. She’s hard-working, though her …

Review: “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell


When you read as much as we in the bookish community do, you get to know the “you” books from the “not you” books. For over a year, I thought that a certain book would not be a Terri book. I was sure it wouldn’t be, I had legitimate reasons and …

Review: “Sinner” by Maggie Stiefvater

Thank you to NetGalley and Scholastic Press for providing me with an eARC of Sinner in exchange for an honest review.

1. Sinner was such a “Maggie” book.

It had the moments of beautiful, twisty prose and deep, thoughtful phrasing that she did so well in books like The Scorpio Races and The Raven …

Month in Review: August/September 2014

During August/September I had a spectacular blog slump but I feel better now! Nothing really happened except that a few of you awesome friends reminded me to change it up if I want, that I can do whatever I want when what I’m doing now isn’t working, and that’s always a good reminder. It’s also just …

Review: “The Beginning of Everything” by Robyn Schneider

1. It has its heartfelt moments.

There are some good quotes, and I don’t deny that the story is heartfelt. Ezra is struggling to find his identity now that he’s not top-jock and he (slowly) realizes that he was only ever going with the flow, doing what everyone expected him to do. I liked …

Preparing for Hogwarts: A Best Friend Adventure

My bestie (Susie) and I have talked for several years about going down to Orlando, FL and seeing the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and we are FINALLY going in October! Pretty much all I knew about the park was that there was a castle and butterbeer and that I wanted to go, so preparing …

Discussion: What are we REALLY using?

Over the weekend, I was reading Parajunkee’s absolutely great post about blogging tools. I won’t bore you with details, but I ended up working on good suggestions from GTMetrix.com to speed up page load time. While editing my social media icon images, I got to thinking: I’m never on some of these sites anymore, and …
