"On ‘Epic’ Writing" with Author Megan Tayte
When I sat down to write my novel Death Wish , I knew it would not be a standalone – the story in my head was too complicated to deliver in one hit. I thought, initially, there would be three books in the Ceruleans series, but I realised quickly it would ta...

My Top Ten Books of 2014 and Wrap-Up
2014 was a pretty good year for me book wise. I didn't complete my goal of 300 books nor did I finish my Newbery Challenge, but I have plans to try again this year. At any rate, I am very happy with the books I read and look forward to another year of readi...

Soup Shenanigans
Since Thanksgiving is over and there is a possibility that you may not know what else to do with your leftovers, I thought I would share my soup method. I do not follow a specific recipe, but instead try to use up what we have, and supplement as needed. To ...

A new blog!
Since I plan on using this blog to sort of keep track of the things that happen in my life, I hope to do a monthly post of the 'of this is what happened' variety. That being said, this is what happened in October. We got t...

This or That with Author Ava Cummings
TV or Movies? Movies! But a House of Cards binge watch…does that count as TV or movies? Hot or Cold? Hot definitely. My mom calls me her “hot house flower” – I’m always cold and live for warm sunny days. Remind me…why do I live in the northeast? Black or Wh...

Plastic Canvas Old Timey Car
A while back, I stumbled across the patern for this plastic canvas car and knew I had to make it for my mom. A few years ago, she bought a 1931 Model A, and while this car is not a Model A, it is pretty close. And the colors match so that helps. And here is...

Story
Introduction

Let’s see, I am a reader, a scrapbooker, and still a beginning cake decorator. My mind is constantly creating things whether it be layouts, frosting ideas, or wanting to rearrange the furniture (though I’m often too lazy for the last). I’m usually reading at least three or four books at a time (and have been getting more and more into e-books and now desperately want to own a Kindle) and I own approximately 2000 books. In addition, my library card gets used a couple times a week (resulting in more books than I could possibly read in a month). 

I have been involved at my local library for 12+ years and have been on staff 6 of those years. It often seems that my world revolves around books. I started this blog because I felt that it was time to put all of this reading time to use. I will likely only review books that I enjoy. These books will be mostly Young Adult fiction, but I dabble in a bit of all genres and age ranges. 

My goal is to post at least one review a week, but I want to eventually post at least one blog a day. If you like my blog, a follow or comment would be great! I’m also on Twitter and Facebook. I have a Formspring, but don’t really check it. And keep up with my reading on Goodreads!

As always, Happy Reading!
