Sadly, I’ve been too busy with life and school lately to make much progress on my TBR. I’ve gotten five chapters into my The Raven Boys reread and flipped through a few pages of the adorable Bloom graphic novel, but I haven’t been able to really dive in. That’s okay. As in all things, book binges come and go in waves. Life is all ebbs and flows. Right now my flow is a lot of kid stuff, getting through finals season, and obsessing over Game of Thrones. And that’s okay! But I started this blog to get back into the habit of writing and creating a little bit every day, so here I am. Let’s get off topic!

I’m making this a thing because I have so many old favorite books crowding around my heart. I was looking through my shelves and touching all of these old favorites fondly when I felt something furry and remembered The Wild Things by Dave Eggers, the novelization he wrote for the live-action film adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.
Amazon is celebrating World Book Day with Amazon Crossing, a program that highlights books from international authors. They have nine books that are being offered for FREE for the next six hours (you already know I snagged several).

The earliest recorded vampire story is a Greek myth about a man who was cursed by Apollo the sun god because he was jealous of his girlfriend (this is the basis of 90% of all stories in Greek myth btw). A quick glance at this will give you an idea of just how long we humans have been vibing with vampire stories. Spoiler alert: it’s been a really, really long time.
I witnessed the moment my daughter connected with a book for the very first time. The memory is seared into my brain with full-color clarity; it smells like a fresh box of Pampers and it feels like sleep deprivation and happiness.
