I’m laying in bed, under three blankets and cozy socks on, tea with milk and honey on my nightstand, Spotify playing in the background, candle burning nearby… *contented sigh* Honestly, does life get any better? No. No it does not. Except maybe if I was finishing the novel I’m pulling my …

Officially, autumn is one day away. (I *thought* the first day was today but no, my dear friend corrected me… it is tomorrow. *sigh*) I cannot contain my excitement.

I AM QUEEN OF LIGHT, SUGARY CONTEMPORARY READS. Just bow down to your leader and thank me later. (By showering me with chocolate and bookstore gift cards, preferably.) In fact, just Tuesday night my best bookish friend Brooke (who is Queen of action-packed fantasy and dystopian books) came to her Queen begging for recommendations.

Emily lists 12 Comments

I have a love/hate relationship with book-to-movie adaptions. Sometimes they’re the best thing to have happened since man landed on moon (because they’re OUT OF THIS WORLD HAHAHA) and sometimes they’re the worst thing to happen since squirtable cheese.
