TTT: Beautiful Middle Grade Covers

We are a little over halfway through the year, and I’m having a bit of a struggle this summer coming up with topics as I prepare for my usual autumn craziness, so I thought this might be a fun opportunity to shout about some middle grades. I read quite a few of them during the […]

#marywrites: From Conception to First Draft

I haven’t written a brand new story in over a year. Truthfully, for the past two years, I’ve mostly been working on the same story. I took a little break in between to write a standalone contemporary about two best friends falling in love in a bookstore, which I promise you’ll get to read someday, […]

Review: Lost in Space (Netflix)

I realize I’m a bit behind the times here as the second season of Lost in Space premiered in January (is that a fact?), but I’m hella slow at watching shows, so I just finished it the other day. I was also just kind of going to quietly go about my way, crying about John […]

TTT: Favorite Albums

Music is such a huge part of my life, but I almost never talk about it on the blog. I’ve been to over 40 concerts, many of them repeats of my favorite bands, and I can, with confidence, say that music has definitely saved my life in the past. My taste is wild–I can jump […]

Book Adaptations

I think it’s pretty universal that no matter how many times we’ve been burned by book adaptations, we’re still going to scream with excitement about a new one. I mean, sure, there are definitely times that we’re wary, but generally? That wariness comes with a healthy dose of HECK YES FINALLY. We should probably start […]

TTT: Authors I’ve Read the Most Books By

This week’s That Artsy Reader Girl topic for TTT is one of my favorites. I wrote a post a million years ago about my auto-buy authors, and while I could go scroll pack in my posts to try to find it, I’m not because that would take forever, so let’s consider this a kind of […]

#marywrites: The Dreaded Query

Is the fact that I’ve been avoiding writing this particular post in the #marywrites series indicative of the subject? YES. 50% of this meme is me wanting to shout about LOTR because I saw someone with the most badass Witch-king tattoo the other day, but I was too busy gaping in awe at it to […]

June Wrap-Up

Unholy Satan, this is such a long wrap-up post, I am actually a little sorry. Like, this is bananas. It goes on forever. I did a lot of all of the things this month, and though it started out pretty rough, plus stayed that way for a while, the end has given me a lot […]

Character Spotlight: Shri

Character Spotlights were a weekly Wednesday series where I used to talk about characters from the novels I was working on or had already completed, but they kind of fell by the wayside, as these things do sometimes. I’m not actually bringing them back weekly, but I’d like to bring them back semi-regularly because they were a […]
