Inspiration or Perspiration: Is It Time to Make a Blogging Schedule?

Inspiration or Perspiration: Is It Time to Make a Blogging Schedule?

I’ve always subscribed to a laid-back method of blogging. Basically, I have no specific schedule I stick to (except in the case of blog tours, which I rarely even participate in anymore). I also almost never write posts in advance or have specific days or times that I blog hop and comment. There are several reasons for my lack of a schedule:  I’m horrible at sticking to a schedule (in life as well as blogging) […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Admission, Meow or Never, The Canyon’s Edge, and You Have a Match

I still have some more Cybils reviews to post, but I’m taking a little time off from that to post some newer releases. (Though I will be coming back to some of my favorite Cybils books still). Today, I have two YA contemps and two MG contemps (one in verse!) I hope these bite-sized reviews will be enough to feed your fiction addiction! Let’s face it, we were all more than a little fascinated when […]

The 2020 Cybils Awards Finalists! Which Books Do You Hope Will Win? Did Any Favorites Not Make the Cut?

The Cybils Awards finalists were announced on January 1st. Of course, I helped choose the MG speculative fiction list, but I was excited to see what made it onto the other lists as well.

(Thanks to the folks at Cybils for the wonderful graphics!) I’d love […]
