Imaginative Discussion: Lyn’s 2014 Reading Data

Imaginative Discussion: Lyn’s 2014 Reading Data

January 21, 2015 Imaginative Discussions, Lyn 5

Last year, Debby at Snuggly Oranges wrote a beautiful post about her 2013 reading trends, and included data in the form of charts and graphs. I was instantly in love with her idea, and I quickly adopted her idea for my 2014 reading. I love reflecting on my own reading trends. I am very excited to compare 2014 to 2015, when it comes time. If I ever have the extra time to actually sit down and do it, I would love to place 2010 to 2013 in an excel format more »

Hey y’all! I have something that is beyond amazing today! Last year, I got word of a LGBTQ YA novel releasing with Sherwood Smith as a collaborator. I left an excited message on the LiveJournal page asking to be kept in the loop about the project. Fast forward to 2014, and low and behold, Stranger is now published and available! I purchased the novel and read it right away. The other part of the writing duo, Rachel Manija Brown, agreed to do an interview to promote and feature the new more »

Imaginative Discussions: Literacy Story

Imaginative Discussions: Literacy Story

September 10, 2014 Imaginative Discussions, Lyn 19

  This week, I panicked when I thought about my topic of discussion this week. I have the distinct impression that I am smashing myself right into the wall of writer’s block. So after some Google-fu, I came across a lovely blog, Estellea’s Revenge, that provided 15 topics to beat the blogging blues. The first one jumped out at me right away: Your literacy story; how did you become a reader? This tale is a bittersweet one for me.  My “literacy story” is also entwined with my ongoing mental history and learning disability more »

Forgotten Fridays: Anna and the French Kiss

Forgotten Fridays: Anna and the French Kiss

August 29, 2014 Bekka, book review, forgotten fridays, Lyn 4

Welcome to Forgotten Fridays. This mission of this feature is, twice a month, to review books that are more than a year old. And we review them TOGETHER! Most reviews have minor spoilers because it is hard to block them out in a back and forth dialogue about a book. So keep that in mind when reading, though we do try to not mention anything that would ruin a book for anyone. This week Bekka and Lyn are reviewing Bekka’s pick, Anna and the French Kiss. Lyn: Alright, I hope that more »
