Wordless Wednesday: PS I Still Love You Launch

I went to the PS I Still Love You launch at POWERHOUSE Arena last night. It was by far the most magical book release party I've ever been to.

Marry, Date or Dump: Mr. Darcy, Mr. Bingley, and Colonel Fitzwilliam

I decided to go back to my all-time classic book for marry, date or dump this week. Pride and Prejudice. Yes, you might think that everyone would chose Darcy. But there are actually a lot of secret Bingley fans out there. And I’ve met at least two people who would vehemently argue that Colonel Fitzwilliam is the man for them. I have to admit I was partially inspired by Emery Lord’s new(ish) book The Start of You and Me, which I read last week and features a Jane vs. Lizzy/Bingley vs. Darcy debate that I was a little obsessed with. So anyways, have at it! Of these three characters, tell me in the comments who you would marry, who you would date, and who you would dump.  Continue reading

First Year of MFA Done

My last class was a week ago, but I’m still kind of in a state of disbelief. It feels like the end of last semester was just a few weeks ago. I can’t believe this year went by so fast and that my MFA is half-done. Even though, I am sad not to be in my classes anymore, I’m also pretty excited about the work I have ahead of me this summer. My writing teacher gave me a great direction for what story I should be working on this summer (which fingers crossed might turn into my first book). I have a really exciting internship in the children’s department of a literary agency that starts in a few weeks.  Continue reading

Top Ten Dead Authors I Would Want to Meet

toptentuesday

Last week’s top ten tuesday got me thinking about all the authors I loved who I will never get to meet. The question is always phrased who would you want to meet living or dead. Since last week’s post was on living authors I really want to meet, this week I thought I’d do the other side of the question – authors who are dead. Let me know in the comments who you’d want to meet and/or what you think of my picks! Continue reading
