The Great YA Debate: #YASaves Revival

Raise your hand if you remember the #YASaves hashtag frenzy that blazed a trail across the Internet back in the summer of 2011. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller? (as an aside, can you believe it’s already 2014? I still find myself writing “2010” on things!) But I digress, if you don’t remember, that’s OK. Allow me to […]

Lessons learned from 50 Shades of Grey

50 Shades of Grey was exploding in headlines once again last week, this time thanks to a very funny reading by one Ellen Degeneres. And apparently there are men who have read it… and enjoyed it? I guess it’s not so surprising, how many men wouldn’t want to read and fantasize about being a 27 […]

St. Patty’s Day Review

This past weekend in order to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to review a work of Irish literature, you know put a little festivity in the air. Being from Louisiana, where there is a festival for everything, I carry the tradition of celebrating with me in adulthood. As time progresses, you’ll find I’m always […]
