You’ve got to be kidding.”  (Kate) “Is it too on the nose?”  (Nick) “I thought you were James Bond today.”  (Kate) “I’m trying to keep things interesting.” (Nick) Nick grabbed her, pulled her close against him, and kissed her.

Every Thursday we are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here.   Lynn’s Quote: “Once upon a time, an undeserving boy pulled a little half-drowned, wannabe mermaid out of the ocean. He laid her on the sand, thinking his heart would break if she didn’t wake up. The moment she opened her big dark eyes and looked at him, his heart wasn’t his anymore. After that moment, his life’s quest wasn’t a matter of searching for his other half, because he knew right where she was…. Read more »

Houston Teen Book Con 2015

Houston Teen Book Con 2015

Rose and I recently attended the 2015 Houston Teen Book Con. We had a very full day of author panels. After which, there are now a bunch more books we want to read. But we managed to not buy a single book. (Go #ShelfLove Challenge!) I found that the overall take-away from all of the authors was that stories and characters really do surprise authors, even the authors who plan out their books. And that a good book should answer the question of What If? It never occurred to me in all the books I’ve read  that authors may not… Read more »
