I think I might have a problem... I really shouldn't be drinking stuff with caffeine cus it makes my heart skip beats, but there's just something about the smell of rich, warm, espresso drinks. Especially when I sit down to write, it just doesn't feel right unless I have a cup of coffee to go … Continue reading Coffee in Madison, WI

3 out of 5 Stars I'm kind of all over the place lately with my reading selections, jumping between YA fantasy to adult horror, classic dystopian to regional non-fiction. The flavor this week is contemporary YA. The Excerpt I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, … Continue reading Book Review: Mosquitoland by David Arnold
I'm so psyched to head back to Chicago in the near future for C2E2! In the mean time, my husband and I meandered into the city recently for a day trip, mainly just to wander around and waste a day.

On the last day, they always have their wonderful $5 Bag Sale, and I couldn't pass up an opportunity like that. Here's some of the great books that happened to … Continue reading Another Book Haul!
