What I’m Reading
I recently finished CINDER, the first book in The Lunar Chronicles series, and I LOVED IT. My review will be up soon! I’m currently reading the memoir ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK by Piper Kerman. Piper is coming to speak at my grad school on the 20th, so I’m hoping to finish (or at least get partway through) the book before her talk.
I’ve also started THIS STAR WON’T GO OUT, written by Esther Earl, a sixteen-year-old girl who died from thyroid cancer at age 16. She was a friend of John Green and part of his inspiration for THE FAULT IN OUR STARS (though John always insists that Hazel is not Esther…Esther would never watch America’s Next Top Model!). The book is a combination of Esther’s journals, her parents’ thoughts, family photos, snippets from her doctors, and includes an introduction written by John Green. Not to mention the entire book is in color and printed on super awesome quality paper. It’s really a gorgeous book, and I’m enjoying getting to know who this beautiful girl was. <3
What I’m WritingSince I’m on my Spring Break, I’m giving myself some time away from school assignments. I’m drafting up a bunch of blog posts for here, though! Get ready for a tidal wave of book reviews!!!
What Inspires Me Right NowMy family. I’m so happy to be home for the week and just spend time with them. I went out to breakfast one morning with Mom, and she and Dad both took me out to dinner another night. My brother and I freaked out over the end of Once Upon a Time’s winter hiatus…it’s FINALLY back on television!! I’m enjoying the relaxation, just hanging out at home.
What Else Is NewLike I said earlier, Once Upon a Time is back on TV! A great first episode on Sunday night, and the previews look like even more wicked (!!!) things are about to happen!
I also…bought some books. I may have a problem.

Happy Wednesday, all! Hopefully spring is finally on its way!
