I’ve been writing some posts for a music site called FDRMX. I recently penned an article about the mega-talented a capella group, Pentatonix. You can read it here!
- Have you guys heard of a vocal group called Pentatonix? They’re an acapela group that’s been on the scene since 2011, after winning “The Sing-Off” in Season 3. They’ve just released their holiday CD, and I’m probably gonna pick it up one of these days. Christmas music season is just around the corner!
What’s better than cake out of a mug? You throw a few ingredients in a bowl, give it a mix, and pop it into the microwave. Presto, chango – you’ve got yourself a single-serving cake with half the clean-up of a full-blown dessert.
Can we talk about Sarah Dessen for a minute? For those who don’t know, she’s a Young Adult author who I’ve adored for years. Almost two years ago but not quite, she came to give a talk at the Carnegie Library and I had the amazing fortune to meet her. In person!

November is here officially and that is so strange to me. I don’t really know where October went. Last night I helped my boyfriend, Jon, pass out candy in his parents’ neighborhood. Lots of cute kids, lots of Huggies dropped into pillowcases. We dressed up as skeletons and looked pretty rad. It’s been a while since I got to participate in handing out candy for trick-or-treat. When I still lived at home with my parents in our old neighborhood, the number of kids who’d come each year had dwindled so much!
I read a lot of Young Adult novels. I can’t help it. That ‘genre’ of books is just what I’m drawn to and I’m not sure that will ever change. I don’t really think I want it to. Lately, tweens and teenagers growing up have such a gigantic selection of books to choose from. I’m actually kind of jealous of them for the abundance of words and ideas at their fingertips.
I’m sure someone’s already thinking this.
What, exactly, is a paperback eclair?
Is it a donut made of paper? Is it a book that’s so sweet it makes your teeth hurt? I’m wondering the same thing. I was trying to think of a name for this space that wasn’t going to pin me down too much in terms of what I’d be writing about.
