Okay, children, let's try it one more time... if someone leaves a comment on your profile, don't reply on your own profile! They won't see it, unless they're sad little people who haunt your profile waiting for a reply, in which case, you should probably send them a Stay Away Stalkerazzi! badge and unfriend them. You need to go to the commenter's profile and reply to their comment there. kthxbye

So far, Kate has kissed Vincent, gone to the movies, kissed Vincent, gone to the opera, kissed Vincent, gone to a funeral, kissed Vincent, read some books, kissed Vincent... WHERE'S THE GODDAMN PLOT?!!

You guys, have you ever fallen so in love with a secondary character that you felt they ought to have had their own book, or been the protagonist instead? Tell me!

So wait... you don't want to tell your girlfriend something, so you think if you just kiss her she'll melt in a puddle and forget about it?! and she does?!!! I am NOT HAPPY.

Was the writing in the first book this pedestrian? Did I just not notice? Why is nothing happening???

Hello my lovelies, I need some YA readers still in high school to help me with a blog post. Anyone? *puppy dog eyes*

My new friend challenge question is 'In a face-off between Peeta Mellark and Edward Cullen, who do you think would win and why?' I almost want to unfriend all of you so I can make you come back and answer the question. It would be so EPIC!

if the rest of this book continues the way it's started, I may have to build a little shrine to Sarah Rees Brennan and offer her little puppies daily.

Vinaya is starting Unspoken (The Lynburn Legacy, #1)
The closest this reporter has come to getting our town’s scoop is when I asked Mr. Roger Stearn (age seventy- six but young at heart) to tell me a secret about our town. He confided that he believed the secret to Sorry- in- the- Vale’s high yield of wool was in the sheep feed. Opening para ftw!

Question: Here and on the blog. Do you think stories need to be situated in a culturally familiar place for the reader in order to be a success? And if so, can non-Americans get away with writing books in American settings?

Vinaya is 15% done with Railsea
One of the things that really annoys me about Mieville is how he will stop in the middle of a really tense scene to explain world building. Seriously? Can't we save it for until after the killer moles are gone?

So I was going to do a fun blog post today, and then I found out that E L James just made it to the Time 100 list of the World's Most Influential People. What were they thinking?!!

Phew! Starting a new blog is hard! I miss the comfort of hiding behind the collective Book Lanterners. But here it goes... my first blog post flying solo! I promise it won't be this serious all the time!

So, you guys, question - do you think I can create and run a blog that doesn't publish reviews, hold giveaways, do book tours and still have it be a book blog?

If GR notifications were a person s/he would be a tease of the worst sort, luring you with the promise of votes and conversations and new friends and actually giving you zip. :(

Vinaya is starting Slumber (The Fade #1)
Dear authors (especially self-pubbed authors), writing pretty is an inherent talent, and not one that can be learned. Don't force the imagery... trust me, the reader ALWAYS knows!

Okay, I think Sage is the actual missing prince... I don't know if I want to be right, since that would be so satisfying! or if I want to be wrong, so that I can upgrade this book a star.

"Tobias raised his hand. A sign that he’d been educated. At the orphanage I came from, a person only raised a hand if he was about to hit someone with it."

Can someone please tell me how to stop bloody Goodreads from trying to connect to my Facebook account? I've had to sign in-and-out of Facebook like FIVE times in the last couple of hours. NOT COOL, GR!

Okay, am I the only one to find this constant harping on the 'gay' question offensive as hell?

Vinaya is 3% done with Fifty Shades of Grey (Fifty Shades, #1)
Worst. Interview. Ever. Also, I just tried to stroke my index finger over my lip, and I look silly. I think ANYONE would look silly, not sexy, doing that. I don't think I was supposed to laugh through that scene though, ooops!
