We hear a lot of about growing older and not having enough time. How there just isn’t enough time in the day for going to the gym, or to dinner with your friends, or anything else that’s inherently good for us.

I inherited a Kindle device about a year or so ago, and for a long while I barely laid a finger on it. For years I was so against digital readers that I remember making almighty remarks to my friends when they purchased and began reading from them. “Oh, but the feeling of turning the page…” “The weight of the book itself!” “Am I the only person … Continue reading All Hail ‘The Queen of the Tearling’

“It doesn’t matter who’s a boy and who’s a girl. It’s a love story.” Stephanie Meyer announced on Good Morning America today that the 10th anniversary release of her book, Twilight, has a major twist to the story that may really excite fans, or simply bewilder them. In Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined (now available), we no longer follow the forbidden and dangerous romance between Bella and Edward, … Continue reading ‘Twilight Reimagined’ Announced for the Series’ 10th Anniversary
I did my spring cleaning a little late this year, and discovered something magical in one of my junk drawers while throwing out old receipts and calendars. Lost within the cabinet for years was a copy of a poem 13 year old me had written for English class. It seems fitting to share with you the first few paragraphs, as it was written as a … Continue reading Happy Hobbit Day 2015!
