Swoon Worthy Book News

A few months ago, I got some news that I’ve had to keep mum for a while. This week, I have finally been able to share my excitement. My book, The Scientific Method of Getting Luckie, is going to be published by Swoon Reads, an imprint of Macmillan. It has been a long journey to…

Able

Sometimes, I want to blog, but I don’t have an essay-length idea to share. So I am going to start using these “aside” style posts when I just have a brief rant or thought to share. Today’s: I often hear “abled” as the opposite of “disabled,” but I think the opposite of “disabled” would be…

Summer in Spain

I booked my flights yesterday.  I bought travel insurance. I turned in the last of my paperwork. Tomorrow, I will get my ISIC card. It’s real. I will be living in a dorm in Madrid for the month of July. I am excited and also terrified, and this blog will be all about both of…

My Current Life in Books

What Does Revival Look Like?

I was chatting with a friend last week, and she said something that has stuck with me. She said, “Revival doesn’t look like they thought it would.” My friend was talking about a particular category of church people, those mostly of an older generation (though not all) who often talk about praying for revival. For…

Apropos of Nothing

I love spring weather, but my allergies are ridiculous this year. Even after taking my meds this morning, I walked into Spanish class with puffy red eyes, smudged eye makeup, etc. I looked like a 15-year-old girl going through her first breakup. I’m sure my classmates were tired of blessing me every time I sneezed….
