I can’t believe it’s March already. Frozen releases in less than 50 days!! This doesn’t seem possible because I swear I was debuting just a few weeks back. Anyway… Here’s what I read in February: THE WINNER’S CURSE by Marie Rutkoski Kestrel is the daughter of a prestigious general, and has a choice to make in the coming months: marry, or join the army. She’s content with neither, and spends her days prolonging a decision and indulging in music (an art her culture despises, as it was valued by the people they now enslave). One day at the market, Kestrel buys a slave—Arin—on a whim. The price of her purchase has people gossiping, and as Kestrel spends more time with Arin, she slowly begins to fall for him. But what she doesn’t know is that Arin has his own dark secrets, and they could shatter everything she holds dear. I can barely talk about this book coherently. I had the pleasure of reading an ARC and after about three chapters my... Read More
Today’s my birthday. As confirmed on twitter, I’m not a day over twenty-four! ;) To celebrate such a miracle, I think it’s time for a giveaway.

Some stories come out almost effortlessly. Others you have to wrestle on to the page. Stolen was one of the former. Simply put, this novella was an absolute joy to write. Stolen will give you a peek at what made Bree the hardened girl Gray meets in Taken, and it will provide a ton of insight as to why she acts as she does in forthcoming Frozen. I’m so proud of this little novella, and incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have told Bree’s story. Above all, I’m thrilled it’s finally in the world for you to read. BUY STOLEN: Kindle / Nook / iBooks / Kobo Stolen is digital only, meaning you’ll have to read on your desktop or using your e-reader of choice, and I hope you’ll pick up a copy. (If not for you, maybe for a friend? I hear books make great gifts.) In case you need more convincing, here’s 10 random facts about the novella: Stolen is approximately 20,000 words long, a quarter the length of Taken. At just $1.99, it’s cheaper... Read More
Another month has flown by. Here’s what I read in January: INTO THE STILL BLUE by Veronica Rossi Saying goodbye to a series you love is never easy. I hate having to part with these characters, and yet I am so grateful for having gone on a journey with them. I enjoyed the first two books a tad more than this final installment one, but I managed to read ITSB in under 24hrs, so clearly, I still loved it. This is an action-packed, satisfying conclusion to a wonderfully unique series. As Perry and the Tides attempt to find the Still Blue, relationships are tested and characters are pushed to physical and emotional limits. Roar is struggling to overcome grief. Aria is left as a leader to the Dwellers, and a bridge between them and the Outsiders. Perry, like always, has so much responsibility on his shoulders and is trying to stay afloat. I adore these characters, but my favorite part of this series is the underlying theme of home and family. Sometimes we are changed and can... Read More
The Engineer and I woke up to a half foot of fluffy, powdery snow. Before the wind or sun could knock it from the branches, we hiked the conservation land behind our house. I could not stop taking photos. Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday. <3 Read More
