things of 2019

2019 seems, in many ways, to have been a quiet year. The sort of time that one is content to live in and others find rather boring to discuss. I worked but didn’t travel enough for my tastes. I worked out which was actually a lot of fun. I spent a lot of time with my […]

NovaTeen 2019

NoVaTeen is a book festival put on every year in the DC area by One More Page Books and a couple of county libraries (there’s several counties all clustered together around here). The focus is on YA books and authors and every year it’s a great blend of interesting, serious topics with lighthearted, frivolous fun. […]

things of 2018

When I lived in LA I had this theory. I never seemed to remember exactly when things happened – if it was this year or last or three years ago. I decided it was because there are no seasons in LA and so nothing to mark time. Now I’m back in a world with seasons […]

things of 2017

I have been abysmal at blogging this past year. Truly. I am making up for it gradually and it begins with a look back. Year of Jubilee. It hasn’t been celebrated since ancient times (around 720 BC) so there is no way of really knowing. Gen. George Allenby led Allied forces into Jerusalem in 1917. […]

things of 2016

2016 is a bit odd to look back on because things have changed so much. It feels like years have passed between now and March and yet, oddly, things in December are beginning to look a little more like they did earlier in the year. I know, cryptic. It’ll all make sense once I get […]

Their Fractured Light

This story is not nearly as much fun as the one for These Broken Stars. Mostly I was excited to see Amie and Meg again because they are so much fun. And to complete the trilogy and get Their Fractured Light. I had no idea I would laugh so hard or be so giddy when […]

Rick Riordan and Chasing Magnus

I have yet to blog about any of the author events I’ve been to this year. I took pictures (which I will belatedly instagram) and got signed books (yay!) and that has been enough for me. But I went to Rick Riordan’s Norse American tour last night with my sister and nephew and there are […]

These Broken Stars

There’s a story behind this book, but don’t worry. It has a happy ending. When I read it, I loved it. It was clever and interesting. I liked the world and I liked the characters. And then I got to The Thing. And I didn’t know what I thought anymore. I thought it was handled […]
