‘Yea’ as in ‘Yea or Nay’ and ‘YAY!’ Even my name comes with exclamations.

I read: I live and breathe books, quite literally. My idea of fun is trolling through the YA aisle of my local library and bookstore looking for my latest swoon-worthy read.

Speaking of swoon-worthy reading… I’ve read The Witch of Blackbird Pond 12 times. My crush on Nat Eaton is challenged only by my love of Jamie Fraser. As for ‘real people,’ I think Markus Zusak is dreamy. Ditto John Green. Ditto Christopher Pike (though, like Big Foot, nobody has ever seen him… so I pretend he looks like Young Harrison Ford and that gets me through many a workday).

I write: Spooky, sinister, and salacious YA gothic romances. I am currently on the quest for an awesome agent. Will update with incriminating Russian step-dancing photos when this happens.

I like: Vintage dresses, red vines, and musicals.

I review movies too: Flick Me (Update 2012: I review “movie.” Note the singular. Okay, so my dreams of being the next Roger Ebert were short-lived. Flick Me indeed.)

  1. Wow! This blog has really turned into something snazzy! I like it!

    I’m sorry I haven’t had a chance to talk to you in ages. We really need to get together soon! My LJ is less than it should be since I haven’t had the time nor desire to make the layout to my tastes. I’ll send you the link once I have some time to bash in some code. Talk to you soon! When are you done with semester?

  2. I have been reading your blogs for some time now and have read or watched some of your suggestions.
    This is a awesome blog and I love it!

  3. Hello!

    I googled A Great and Terrible Beauty and got your website. I read several of you posts and I also love the Gemma Doyle Trilogy. I judge a book by its cover as well and found the cover seductive so i read it. I think they may be making a movie! Oh and i looked at your choices for each character and Bravo! Steven Strait would be perfect. He is so hot!

  4. Hi, I was reading some of the things you have said about the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I love this series and was wondering if you knew if there was ever a movie, or mini-series made out of these books? I have been searching google but can not seem to find anything that says yes there was or no there wasn’t. Any help would be very much appreciated!! By the way I like you blog 🙂

  5. I stumbled on your blogs by accident by googling information on Outlander. I love it! Discussing literature in a intelligent and fun way! Thanks!

  6. I also stumbled accidentally on your blog searching Richard Armitage (oh yes baby) and just wanted to say I love it! You give me a good chuckle each and every time and nothing pleases me more than 1. Books 2. All things Romantic 3. Collages 4. Richard Armitage and 5. Wit. So, I’m on board for following your blog… absolute great fun! (And now I’m totally scarred by the Rob-Merman… *shudder*)

  7. love this blog! obssessed with outlander and tripped on your blog while googling for possible movie info…discovered your jamie fraser casting post! awesome!

  8. You should read “I Capture the Castle” by Dodie Smith. And watch the movie if you haven’t. Judging by your other tastes (which run very parallel to mine!) you would probably love this book! Thanks for the wonderful blog, I love it.

  9. A new fan of your blog! Excellent spirit you have in writing. I also found your blog when I was googling Jamie Fraser when I was bored at work one day. I will seriously consider your book list for by TBR book shelf. So glad I found your blog!

  10. I also found you while googling Jamie Fraser.
    Now, I know you’re taking a small break, rehab, whatever. I hope you still have time to read your reader feedback. I have a book series suggestion that _I_ think you would enjoy, based on the the books read we have in common. Its the Night Angel Trilogy by” Brent Weeks.

  11. just checking to see if I can post on this.
    Can’t post on the outlander one anymore. The screen just goes white when i hit submit.

  12. Nancyq: WordPress has been spamming some of my comments. I’ve manually added your comment. Sorry about the technical difficulties. I will go shake my virtual fist at WordPress and scare it into submission. In the meantime, comment away!

  13. I agree totally that the only way to do the series justice is to have a (TV or movie) series with each season based on one book. That would be a real commitment (with 7 books and more on the way) but there are millions of Outlander fans.

    What about Chris Hemsworth as Jamie?

  14. I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and I’ve just given you an award… Yeah, one of those pass-along thing 🙂 Don’t feel obligated to do anything with it–it’s just a token of appreciation for your content and brilliant sense of humor, which I enjoy enormously.

    Congratulations! You’re a versatile and irrestistibly sweet liebster blogger 😀
