L.B. Carter is an award-winning, internationally bestselling author, bookworm, scientist, and cat-mom with a penchant for sarcasm and puns and an adoration about alliteration. Her novels are a myriad of dark fantasy, science, mystery, nature, humor, and a touch of romance. Curled up in front of a winter fire under fairy lights with a book, a cup of spiced hot chocolate, something she’s baked, and her snuggly orange lap-cat is her happy place. Like the fox in her favorite book, Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, L.B. believes what’s important to the heart is not seen with the eyes… but sometimes visible with imagination.

But I won't stop bookishness -- I'll work on another project, or start something new (even if it won't go anywhere, though often it does), or even read one of my favorite books to inspire and perk up my muse again.(less)

Another amazing JLA! I've never been as big a fan of the Lux series as her other work, but this one really grabbed me. It's an interesting take at prejudice using aliens and humans as the two bodies -- with other interesting mixes and government ...more

I love Melissa Haag normally. I find Uttira and the world she's built with these supernatural YA beings fascinating. I do not love that this story has little/no plot and when it does pick up, the book ends. I am fine with cliffhangers, but there ...more

Colleen Hoover
“Sometimes life gets in your way.
it gets all up in your damn way.
But it doesn't get all up in your damn way
because it wants you to just give up and let it take control.
Life doesn't get all up in your damn way because it just wants you to hand it all over and be carried along.

Life wants you to fight it
Learn how to make it your own.
it wants you to grab and axe and hack through the wood.
It wants you to get a sledgehammer and break through concrete.
It wants you to grab a torch and burn through the metal and steel until you can reach through and grab it.

Life wants you to grab all the organized, the alphabetized, the chronological, the sequenced. It wants you to mix it all together,
stir it up,
blend it.”
Colleen Hoover, Slammed
