Looking Forward to November:


Unless there is some crazy snow (it is Ohio, after all), I am going to go to Marissa Meyer’s Heartless tour stop with Amanda! I love Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series and I’m so excited for her next book and to meet her!

Today is my Birthday! Sorry, no giveaways this year because I’m kind of poor. But feel free to buy yourself a book in my honor.

NaNoWriMo 2016 Participant Flair

I have finally decided on my NaNoWriMo story! Thanks to those that voted on my post last week (linked above). I’m going to work on a mystery/suspense tentatively titled MurderTown about a man who buys a town (did you know you can buy actual towns? Like it’s a real thing!) and (obviously) murders ensue.

  1. Ooo happy birthday!!!

    And good luck with your book – I don’t even know where people get ideas for stories, so I admire people who even have a concept to start with!

  2. It’s your birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you have a great day!!

    You had an awesome reading month! I just picked up This Adventure Ends at the library last night!! It’s the first time in years I’ve checked out a book at the library (I usually only read on my Kindle). I’m excited to read it!

  3. Happy belated birthday! So far the weather forecast looks good for the day of the Marissa Meyer event. Hopefully that doesn’t change! I just started Cress and so far I love it.
