[Tag] NaNoWriMo Tag!

So, I found this beautiful tag over at Bingeing On Books, and even though NaNoWriMo is closed with the end of November, I think it is important to look back and give some feedback on my WIP, even though I DIDN’T FINISH IT (I am a loser). I am changing some of the questions to reflect past tense to fit with the closing of another month of writing. Feel free to still join in! One of the steps in the writing process is reflection and self-evaluation! How many times have you done NaNoWriMo? This is my 4th year, and my more »

Describe your bookshelf (or wherever it is you keep your books-it doesn’t actually have to be a shelf!) and where you got it from. Er, my shelving is eclectic. I have 10 milk crates, three DVD shelves, the floor in front of my window and then a bookshelf I purchased from Target. After we moved from a huge 2 bedroom apartment to a smaller one bedroom, I am desperate to find book space. Do you have any special more »

Tagged: The Cinderella Book Tag

I am loving all of these beautiful book tags and challenges. It reminds me of my Livejournal days. Anyways, Amber at YA Indulgences lovingly tagged me when I demanded it on Twitter. So, I happily present: Dreams Come True! Lyn does the Cinderella Book Tag! Evil Stepsisters: A book with characters you just hate St. Clair and Anna from Anna and the French Kiss These two are just ideal for one another – conceited, self-absorbed and underhanded. Both characters are equally guilty for ruining this novel with their utter crappiness.   Prince Charming: A book with a gentleman Jonah Griggs from more »

Tag: How Far Would You Go For Your Favorite Books?

 On the blog today, I have a wonderful book meme, first featured on Christina’s blog, Christina Reads YA! In this tag, we discuss favorite books, settings and authors, and I am very excited to share my own answers today! Check out her answers on her own blog as well! 1. I would give up the internet for a month for a signed first edition of this book: Give up the internet? My co-bloggers would murder me. I suppose I could call one of them and dictate me reviews. Actually, that sounds awesome. That is as close to fame as I more »

Unpopular Opinions Tag

  In complete honesty, I love memes and tags from other users.  It really gets my mind going. When I saw this one pop up, I was a bit shy to share my thoughts. I trust my blogging friends and the reading community, and when I am the black sheep, I tend to get frustrated with myself. What did I miss? What is wrong with me? Etc etc. Well, since I spotted some wonderful posts on this issue from Gillian and Christina, I finally decided to throw my hat into the proverbial ring, take a deep breath, and let the more »
