Of the Wood: Part One
Hello, readers!  Happy 4th of July!  I have been a little intensely frazzled lately, working and getting ready for college.  I promise the last post in the YA Tropes I Hate series is coming!  But until then, be sustained by my 18k-ish word novella, Of the W...

Irish Adventures: Day 3
Day 2 recap: bus tour.  Tired feet.  Drank Guinness.  Ewwww. Yesterday was our last day in Dublin, so we woke up bright and early to catch the train to Cork.  Very early.  Very bright, because the sun rises at around five in Ireland.  We had enough time for...

Hello, readers!  I do apologize for being dreadfully silent on this blog.  I think I have a pretty good excuse. I'm in Ireland! (By the way, I'm writing this on my smart phone, gasp horror glug glug die, so I can't post pictures, but please feel free to fin...

YA Tropes I Hate: Caste Systems
Earlier this year, I simultaneously read  Red Rising , by Pierce Brown (which I did not finish) and Red Queen , by Victoria Aveyard (which, spoilers, I did finish but did not enjoy.  At all.)  It was a surreal experience.  Both heroes are scrappy, low-in-th...

Irish Adventures: Day 4
