Nowhere to Hide for Todd Hewitt

In The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, Todd, Viola, and Manchee are running and running and running and…. running some more. From an army. A massive army. Out to get them.

My friend Steph introduced me to the band Mermaid Kiss, and their song Nowhere to Hide is perfect for this running away from an army scenario:

Pride and Prejudice

Ew. “Poetry is the food of love”

*insert massive eye roll*

Wait, wait… That’s not why we’re here? Oh, okay. Fine. I guess I’ll refrain from laughing at the language and romancing of the early 1800s.

Emojis Are Taking Over February!

February’s here! And while I’m all about the pastel colors and glitter taking over the world, I get a bit annoyed with all the lovey-dovey stuff. (Though the puns on kid’s Valentine’s get me smiling every time).

Adventure Plans for February ’17

It’s almost time for A Conjuring of Light! I’m flailing and fangirling and freaking out all at once. I need to know what happens! A Gathering of Shadows ended with a cliffhanger and I can’t handle it any more, okay? I needed book 3 like…. nine months ago. Ahhhh!!!!!

This month I’ve teamed up with the marvelous Reagen Reads over on bookstagram to create this month’s #PirateDustAdventure. I am sooooooo excited about this. Together we brainstormed twenty-eight photo prompts, all inspired by VE Schwab’s Shades of Magic series! So without further ado, here’s the amazingness!
