#goals #help

I almost applied for post-grad school. Can you believe that? I just got done with the whole get-your-education thing (it took me 10 years to get my BA and MA) and I was suddenly considering going back into the mess of deadlines and debt to get my PhD. To avoid making any hasty decisions, I… Continue reading #goals #help

Say Goodbye to The Girl Who Blogs

Hello, everyone! As you may have noticed, my website has changed a bit. It's under construction because the time has come: I'm finally transitioning from a blog to an author website! It feels strange to be moving on from "The Girl Who Blogs", but there's a season for everything and "The Girl's" time is up!… Continue reading Say Goodbye to The Girl Who Blogs

The only occasion when panic is a good thing.

I want to talk to you guys about panic. Not the "sudden overwhelming fear that produces hysterical or irrational behavior," but rather the book Panic by Lauren Oliver. Aren't you relieved? I am. I don't want anyone to panic. Please.   This book. Where do I even begin? It is a character-driven story with so many… Continue reading The only occasion when panic is a good thing.

Time travel on a Tuesday.

Hey, lovelies. How are we today? Surviving the dreaded Tuesday? I ran errands alone today, so, needless to say, it's been a good day. Seriously, who knew that Walmart could be considered a "getaway." (Yes, I know. I have no life.) 😉 I'm so excited about today's book talk because time travel. You heard me!… Continue reading Time travel on a Tuesday.

Book Talk for the first time in a million years.

It's Tuesday! And I have a book to share with you! Want to talk about books with me? It's been awhile. A long while. But I think---and I say this very cautiously---life may be slowing down the tiniest bit. And that's all I need, just a tiny bit of slowing down. Enough to catch my… Continue reading Book Talk for the first time in a million years.

A bit of light reading for a dreary day.

In the interest of starting this week out right, I'll toss a title your way for a little light, witty reading. Sound good? Comedy is a must around these parts. You know, laughter being the best medicine and all that. Have you read Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling?… Continue reading A bit of light reading for a dreary day.

Book Talk….on a Thursday. Because we’re rebels.

Have we all gotten over 2013 by now? It's been a whole day so we should be moving on, right? I am moving on in every way, but perhaps most importantly by setting a new reading goal. As some of you know, my goal for 2013 was 75 books. It was a good goal---a great… Continue reading Book Talk….on a Thursday. Because we’re rebels.

A little fantasy fiction to brighten up our Tuesday. And possibly a small rant on femininity.

Goood morning! I've been to the gym already. There is coffee ready and waiting for me to enjoy at my leisure. It's a beautiful day and, of course, the perfect day to have a little book talk. As you all may know, I'm a girl. As such, I enjoy reading books with female leads. I… Continue reading A little fantasy fiction to brighten up our Tuesday. And possibly a small rant on femininity.

A Modern Masterpiece or Why Kaela Is Crying All Alone On The Couch

You guys!!! This is our first Book Talk Tuesday. Don't panic---I know we've been doing book stuff on Mondays, but we're changing things. Tuesday is the day for books from here on. Sound good? Whew! Good. I knew you'd be okay with it. Thanks. 🙂 Occasionally, I like to read a book that represents struggle… Continue reading A Modern Masterpiece or Why Kaela Is Crying All Alone On The Couch

Promises, promises. Oh, and an overdue book review.

I told you guys a lie. It was an accidental lie, but I'm sorry still. It's terrible to be the misleader-of-trusting-innocents like yourselves. I said we'd be talking about Jack Flacco's Ranger Martin and the Zombie Apocalypse this week. And then I changed my mind. We're going to talk about it next week, and it… Continue reading Promises, promises. Oh, and an overdue book review.
