I'm currently doing the final edits of my manuscript of Hated and I'm listening to 2 Cellos since their music inspired one of the characters.

Day 22: #ampersandaug17 {words} I was going to use a totally different photo for this prompt and then I thought I'd share this beauty from our anniversary photo shoot. That, my friends, is how tight a wedding dress gets after 15 years of happy marriage and 3 kids. Putting that dress on was like donning a dang corset and I now know I'd never survive in any time period where a corset was required. I literally was sweating like a hog and couldn't breathe. But I love that dress and as long as I can get the zipper up, I'll be wearing it every five years on my anniversary just because. Anyway, back to the reason I chose this shot for today...."Words." The words I said at my wedding, the promises I made to my husband, are the most important words I've ever said.

Happy Hexagon Day! πŸŽ‰ This is the book I NEEDED as a teen and it spoke to my heart in a way that very few books can claim. So much about this story of fierce friendship and full, fluid hearts is exactly the light and love that we could all use more of in today's climate. These characters and their spot of earth are still on my mind long after I finished their beautiful story. If you like or love humans in any way, shape, or form, your heart has been waiting for this book! πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ #yareads #dresscodesforsmalltowns #harperteen #favoritebooks

Do you have it?? Do you love it?? I want to hear all about your HOUSE OF FURIES experience!

I'm so happy that this book is finally out in the world. I think Louisa is my favorite protagonist I've gotten to write so far - flawed, courageous, curious, selfish, smart and magical. And of course, writing Mr Morningside was almost too much fun. 😜

I hope you're enjoying the novel, my big big prize package giveaway is starting THIS WEEK on Facebook so don't miss it!

I can not wait for it to cool down here so reading outside can actually be enjoyable again!! Throwing it back to Three Dark Crowns and the time that the weather behaved. πŸ˜‰

Just finished "The Sandcastle Empire" the other night and really enjoyed it. There were some gaps in parts of the story but I believe (hope) that it's part of a series so I feel like there's room to fill in. Giving it a 4/5 though! Thanks once again to OwlCrate for the book. Not sure if I would have picked it up on my own so I'm glad they sent it along. πŸ™‚πŸŒ΄#readingrecommendations #thesandcastleempire #kaylaolson #harperteen @owlcrate #bookstagram

With my oldest's bday successfully launched, it's back to packing! We are a couple weeks away from closing on our first 🏑 It's been a long process but so worth it; even though I won't throw any confetti until the last form is the signed, things are starting to get exciting! I always worry about the effect moving will have only my 3 yr old, but I think I need to give him more credit--there have been some huge changes in our lives over the past year, and he's done so well ❀️#writerslife #firsthome #momworriestoomuch #wishusluckπŸ€ .

My kids are outside playing Manhunt with flashlights. Did you ever do that when you were a kid?
β€’
Speaking of hunt...this is one of my favorite retellings. It's a retelling of Beauty and the Beast that is so different and well written. If you like retellings, you have to read this one.

Sometimes you totally sleep on a book/series that's got everything you love: strong and interesting female characters in every corner, magnificent world building and a whole lot of weird, dark magic stuff. #ThreeDarkCrowns is so good. Caught on just in time for the sequel, #OneDarkThrone - out next month! Happy reading! πŸ‘‘πŸ–€πŸ‘‘πŸ–€πŸ‘‘ #bookrecommendation #bookrec #ya #yalit #youngadult #kendareblake #harperteen #epicreads #miamireads #booklove #bookstagram

OwlCrate had a meet up in Vancouver and I was SO excited to go! I got there almost an hour early, but to the wrong spot, and by the time I found them there was already a group sitting in a circle which made me super anxious to go. So I didn't. I hid in the trees near them (looked as creepy and suspicious as it sounds) and I read, BUT I was with a lovely person who went for me and told me all about it and all the trivia questions and got this AWESOME swag bag! I'm pretty disappointed that I couldn't urge myself to go, but hopefully next time!!

I'm SUPER happy they included More Happy Than Not because I've wanted to read a book by Adam Silvera for forever!! I also love the pins included because now I can make my Chapters vest snazzier πŸ˜› Thanks @owlcrate ❀️

I received this beauty from a trade and I can't wait to read it! πŸ‰

New additions to my classroom library (minus Outlander, I could not pass that one up!). All are from The Dollar Tree.

The Upside Of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli 5/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#StaffPickSaturday // Dreamfall by @amyplum // When an experimental new procedure goes wrong for a bunch of teens who suffer from different types of insomnia, the seven teens are plunged into a dream world where their worst nightmares come to life.
Hunted by monsters real and made up, "Dreamfall" by Amy Plum will leave you questioning what is real and what isn't.

Do you ever find a book that just resonates through your soul?

That's how I feel about #HowItFeelsToFly by Kathryn Holmes. I honestly wish I had a book like this when I was growing up. It makes me see just how important #YALit is and why we need it for our teens.
.
Have you ever felt like that with a book before? I'd love to know!
