I just can’t seem to pry my hand from books lately. They’ve encompassed much of my free time, time when I should be writing, or cleaning or doing other things than reading. I just want to read all the time and get as many books under my belt as possible so when I go back … More Hi. My name’s Amanda Leigh and I’m a read-a-holic.
Oh. My. Goodness. Just this past weekend I finished up the FABULOUS Fifty Shades trilogy by E L James. For those of you who don’t know – and by “don’t know” I mean “are living under a rock” – Fifty Shades is an amazing series of books that is flying off the shelves right now. … More “Miss Steele, I do believe you’re making my palm twitch.”
Today was supposed to be awesome. Insurgent came out this morning (I stayed up until midnight to make sure I downloaded it right away from iBooks) so nothing was supposed to go wrong. But wow… Good went bad in all of a few hours… Do you ever get up in the morning, feeling awesome, and … More From good to bad and back to good…
IT’S HERE!!! This is the day I have been waiting for since I finished first book in this series, Divergent by Veronica Roth (click her name to be directed to her blog. I enjoy her very much…). I officially have the book on my iPad now and it’s taking everything inside me to not call … More Happy ‘Insurgent’ Day everyone!!!
I am passionate about two different things I want to do with my life, but I can’t see myself doing one without the other. And both things take up so much of my free time, I don’t have enough time to devote a lot to either. I love writing. I want to write a book … More I am torn.
*just a small note to apologize for the lack of posting these past few days. I’ve been caught up in all these things lately that hit me at once, but I apologize. I’ve wanted to post, but a half assed post isn’t something I think everyone deserves. So only good post as much as possible … More “Every minute you spend with someone gives them a part of your life and takes part of theirs.”
Another weekend come and gone and I feel as if I have so little to show for it. Anyone else feel like their weekends fly by and suddenly you’re back at work and wonder what the heck you did with your time? That’s how I feel right now. I really did have intentions on blogging … More Where the heck did the weekend go??
I have, yet again, finished reading another post apocalyptic YA novel. I was planning on taking a longer break from this theme in the genre, but I couldn’t help myself. I took a short break to read a couple of very bad YA books, but I really wanted to sink my teeth into Wither by … More “Fate, I think, is a thief.”
I decided to take the day off from blogging yesterday. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I needed to take a step back and think about what I want. What I want out of the future of this blog, my Etsy site, my writing. Although I love all three of the above, I … More The wheels are set in motion people!!
I wish we could fast forward time right now so every weekend I could see each of the Hunger Games movies. Seriously. Friday night, I went in to the theatre with no expectations (I was able to avoid all – well almost all – reviews all day) but with very high hopes. The movie did … More I tell him, “Real.”
