Cover Characteristics: Book Covers featuring Spaceships/UFOs

Technically the topic this week is UFOs, but really whether something is a UFO or not is relative, right? I mean, to the aliens in the UFO, it's actually just a spaceship. Or it could be humans flying around in a ship, or something that's not even a ship, but if someone happens to see it and doesn't know what it is, voila! It becomes a UFO. Yes? This was all just a really long way of saying I'm...

First of all, I want to give a big, giant thank you to everyone who commented last week!

Discussion: Why Do Some Books Make Us More Emotional Than Others?

Ok, so, there are some books that have emotional situations in them, and my brain understands that the things happening are emotional, that the character is feeling things, that it would be horrible to ever be in that situation for real... yet, for some reason, I just don't really feel emotional.But then there are other books that I just feel in my gut, my chest, my whole body. I myself get tense...

The Weekly Update: 3/19/17 + A Personal Note about Chronic Illness

My Weekly Update posts are always personal since I usually update you all about my life, but today's is going to be even more personal than usual. I've mentioned a few times on my blog that I have a chronic illness. I generally don't like to specify it as CFS/ME partly because, thanks to the awful name (chronic fatigue syndrome), people tend to think, "Oh, so you're tired? I'm tired too. Just...

And the reason I am so hesitant to read them anymore is because I can't stand all the typical high school tropes. And it's not just books that do this, it's movies and shows too. I've joked before about how I must've had a different high school experience than most authors, but it has reached the...
