  1. Great post! Love your videos :) BABY! I don't even like kids, but yours are pretty darn cute. The Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy is one of my absolute faves, so you should read it ASAP. It's SOO GOOD! Totally understand about undertaking big books though - it can be daunting when you're short on time.

    Love the blog makeover! It looks spectacular.

    1. Thank you so very much! These kids can be pretty darn cute when they want to be, lol!
      I can't wait to start this trilogy, I've heard epic things about it, now more than ever! Def need to make time soon :)
      And Lori did an amazing job with my blogs redesign, I am so happy with it!

  2. I really like the new look. My only complaint is that the small yellow font hurts my eyes.

    1. Thank you, Alyn! I am working with the designer now to see if we can either make the font larger or a different color. You're not the only one to comment on it :)

  3. LOVE the new bloggy look! Beautiful! Just bought the last Mortal Instruments book. Had I known how ginormous it was, I would've bought the digital version to make reading while nursing easier lol, but I love that it will be a long while for me before the story ends.

    1. Thank you, Cheryl!
      And I've seen the book, it's HUGE!!! I'm not ready for it to end yet!!! Plus, my whole series is in paperback, and I'm not sure if I want to buy the book yet, because it won't match, lol! But I don't know if I can wait that long for a paperback copy! Ahhhh!!!... I hope you enjoy it to the max! xo

  4. That's so awesome that you got to go to BEA! I've heard that it's such a fun experience. I'm hoping to buy and read a copy of Since You Been Gone soon, I've heard really great things about it and it seems like such a fantastic summer read. I hope you enjoy your books. :)
