Tips for Reading

Hi guys! I decided it’d be fun to write a random post today. I know most of you love reading, so this will be right up your alley. Tips about eating! No, wait … reading. Sorry. I’m sick, so I haven’t eaten much today, and eating makes me sick, but I keep thinking there must be something appetizing out there …

Reading is hard. I know, ’cause I have 267 books I want to read (probably over three hundred if I were to add books I want to read just because they’re classics). Will I ever get through all those books? Probably not. I really am going to go through my to-read list on Goodreads someday and delete a good half of them.

But you know how addictive to-read lists can get … you add one, and then you add another, and then you add twenty more, and before you know it you have … *calculates* … twenty-two books on your to-read list. 😄

Anyway, on to the post!

And my family is like this:

And I reply:

And/or:

Seriously, though, we’re gonna have an awesome spotlight this month. So read on, and you’ll … I don’t know. Enjoy this post. And just remember …

In Which I Humiliate Myself

Since you all seem to like me, I decided that should change.

How am I going to go about changing that? Well, I’m going to post a lot of random excerpts from books I wrote … years ago.

For this, I have to go here:

screenone

Yep. The file folder “No Longer in Use.” *lightning, thunder, scary music*

And a peak inside the file folder, as if you weren’t scared (or scarred) enough already:

screentwo

I know. Scary, right?

So, I’m going to click on a random folder and give you an excerpt from one of my works-in-progress. None of these were actually finished. So. Let the games begin.

In Which We Examine Millie Lark on a Non-Professional Basis

{Note: all the images in this post were stolen from Google images. Credit to their owners, whomever they may be.}

Today we’re going to take a peak at the inner workings of a character from The Lady of the Vineyard. Her name is Millie Lark. She is Adele Collier’s best friend. She gets all of two paragraphs of page-time in TLOTV and perhaps a mention in Flowers. However, I like Millie and am considering writing a novel (or novella) specifically about her.

Doesn’t he crack you up!? Probably he’s all like, “Is this a dress, and did a cow just lick my hair!?!”

fivefallfavorites

Welcome to day 2 of Five Fall Favorites! Today I’ll be showcasing two of my favorite genres … romance and historical fiction! 😀

Just a quick reminder … this is what’s at stake:

grand-prize

Before we start …

I don’t understand how anyone could make fun of your acting either, Lizzie. They’re idiots, all of them. And you can’t convert a book directly into a movie. You have to make a few changes. I respect that and all my daughters will be named Keira. So there.

Yeah … I’ve been watching that GIF for almost an hour now … 😉 Just kidding … sorta.

Anyway, I just want to link to this post now. Because it’s an amazing summary of the everything I’ve been trying to express as ‘true’ Austen fans hate on the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice. Trust me, guys … I’m a true fan. 😛
