Ballad Giveaway Winner

And the winner is...bookwormam!

Please contact me with your mailing address and I'll get your copy of Ballad on its way. I have to say I was delighted to read all of your favorite ballads and love songs. I was surprised, though I probably shouldn't have been, by how many chose "Unchained Melody." It was the most popular choice by far and it is a lovely song. There were several others suggested that are favorites of mine and I decided to put together a "best of" list, if you will, of your favorite ballads and/or love songs. Enjoy!

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones


  1. Congrats bookwormam! I'm so jealous :)

  2. I listened to your playlist last night. Very romantic. :) I think my favorites are the middle songs, The Cure, The Postal Service (LOVE them), Depeche Mode, Coldplay & The Killers.

  3. Janice, grin, I was happy to see The Postal Service mentioned as well. I love them! And especially that song. That middle section is good. Although the last one is the song DH & I danced to at my wedding so I'm partial to it. :)

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
