Holiday Craziness...

Thanksgiving was awesomesauce. Lots of food. Family. Charades that had me laughing in tears. I can't believe it's almost Christmas already. I've been SO busy. I have zero time these days. I did manage to sneak in to see TWO movies I was anxiously awaiting: City of Bones & Catching Fire.

I was looking forward to City of Bones, hoping the movie would sway my opinion about the book because I REALLY want to like the series. I have no idea why it doesn't float my boat. To each his own I guess. In any case, it still isn't for me, but I'm glad so many others love it :)

Catching Fire kind of blew my socks off. I was not expecting that movie to be as good as the first (as I didn't like the second book as much as the first) BUT it had me so sucked in that I was literally leaning forward in my seat the entire time.

In other news, I've joined a collaborative blog called Darkly Delicious YA. I'm hoping it will force me to be more active in the blogging world. As you can see...I've been sucking it up when it comes to posting :\  Here is a little about the blog:

At Darkly Delicious YA...
We are a collective of traditionally published young adult authors who are passionate about writing suspenseful, intriguing novels for teens and adults. Our works range from contemporary, romance, paranormal, magical realism, or supernatural, but each of our novels feature a darkly delicious storyline that will leave you craving more.

There are 21 authors involved, so I won't feel so pressed to post all the time, but I'll still get to pop in here and there :) It should be fun. I'm looking forward to it. We're all posting a little about the holidays, and on Monday (Dec. 16th) I'll be sharing one of my most embarrassing holiday moments....aaaah!

Here is the link if you want to follow: Darkly Delicious YA

In the meantime, I'll be writing writing writing...for those wondering about my third book, I have about 200 pages written. Getting close!!

What did you think about Catching Fire or City of Bones? Have you had time to go see any movies during this busy holiday season?


  1. Congratulations on being a part of the new site.
    Sorry, neither series is for me.
    However, I am excited about The Hobbit tomorrow!

  2. I was stunned by Catching Fire. And it was better than the book. Although considering how good it was, it would be impossible for it not to be.
