Top Ten Tuesday: “Books On My TBR I Predict Will Be 5-Star Reads”

Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday of February! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly listing book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where participants list their top ten responses to the prompt. This week's prompt is one that I anticipated to be very difficult, because I don't often put books on my TBR that I think I won't enjoy, but I started at the top and listed some that stood out to me!... 

Author Features and Giveaways

Author Interview: Jennieke Cohen on her debut novel “Dangerous Alliance”

Today I would normally be posting my monthly wrap-up, but I have something special to share, which is an interview with Jennieke Cohen! I am so delighted that she was open to doing this interview with me and I hope you are delighted when you read her insightful answers! I will be putting up my monthly wrap-up and February TBR in the next few weeks, but for now enjoy this interview!... 

Book Reviews

Book Review: “The Graveyard Book (Graphic Novel)”

This book was given to me for Christmas this year and I started reading it that very same day (come on--you aren't really surprised, are you?). I don't read many graphic novels and haven't read the original version of this novel, but I like reading something outside of my norm (in fact, it is something I want to do more of this year) and so I was excited to give this book a go. If you like graphic novels or have enjoyed other books by this author then stick around and you might end up with a new book on your TBR! :P...

Wednesday's Wonderous Writings!

Wednesdays Wondrous Writings: “Gone, gone”

Today's WWW post is inspired by the fact that one of my family members is currently traveling abroad. Traveling is super fun, but it's always a little sad for anyone left behind and so today I decided to write an American Cinquain that was inspired by the feeling of missing someone. Sometimes I get sucked into the words and lose the original direction of what I am writing, which happened with this poem, but I still like how it turned out... 

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday: “Book Cover Freebie”

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly listing book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week participants list our top ten responses to the prompt. This week's prompt has to do with book covers, but I get to choose what type I want to talk about. I thought that it would be fun to create a list of books that have my favourite color on the cover, which is an old prompt. I honestly love every single color out there but lately my top ones have been pink and green. I don't have as many pink books, so here are my favourite green covers!...

Random Writing

Messy Writing

It's taken me a while to really come to terms with the fact that writing is messy and that this is OK. Many writers and people who I've gotten advice from have talked about how writing is messy. Whether it is for a blog, for a school assignment, or for your novel, first drafts are totally crazy and are just a mish mash of ideas thrown onto a page in no particular order...
