  1. Wow, I can’t believe how much you did this past year. You’re total #Goals. A lot of the books you’ve reviewed are officially on my TBR list now, and I can’t wait to see what you think compares to what I think.


    1. Thank you! I’ve really committed to this blog! I think a part of this is because I want to write and not only do I want to write, I want to write more, both fiction and non-fiction, so I am trying to use the practice of blogging to exercise my brain and writing muscles. So I’ve been trying to go to bookish events in my area and such and write about them. I have a cool post that I should have up tomorrow or Sunday about an author I met this week.

      1. That’s awesome!! I can’t wait to read your new post. I think the more you write, the better it becomes. Like the new study that says that in order to be an expert at something, you need to practice for 10,000 hours! I wish you the best of luck, and hope that you just continue to improve and grow 🙂


      2. Thank you! I am trying. I have several things I am trying to pitch to magazines and submit to different places. I have outlines for different characters and all these really awesome ideas that I want to look into a little more before I start writing a story, but in the meantime reading a whole bunch of interesting and varied genres is helping a lot.

    1. I loved it and I am actually really glad that I listened to it as an audiobook because the performance was stunning. It has to be one of my favorite trilogies now and the funny thing is that a lot of what’s criticized about the trilogy are points that I actually really like.

      1. Yea I mean, I didn’t expect Lena to defeat “The Cure” entirely. I mean there wasn’t even really a face or figurehead for her to go up against! It was really Lena’s journey and I think that it leaves the world open for Lauren Oliver to play around with it a bit. She’s already written a series of short stories but clearly there are other parts of the America and I would be interested in seeing the upheaval in those cities as well. Especially since it looks like only the upper crust gets access to the news.


      1. They really can’t. I don’t think that they’ll be able to at all. They are twisting and folding Alison’s family into some unrecognizable shape. And I Am half convinced that the entire show is just Ezra writing a book. We’ll end the series and we’ll be back at the bar with Aria and the post of Alison “missing!”
