Armchair BEA Day 2: Best of 2012

So far, 2012 has been a great year for books! While I know there are many awesome books I haven't read so far, there are a few that have become favorites.



The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

I absolutely adored this quirky fractured fairytale. It has become one of my all-time favorite books, and I'm sure I will treasure the entire series as it is published. I have talked this book up to so many people! They probably thing I'm insane. If you haven't heard of it, I have a review here. But don't take my word for how amazing this book is. Go get yourself a copy pronto!





Allegiance (Legacy, #2)

I thought Allegiance was brilliant. The writing took my breath away. I couldn't believe that the author is so young! She's amazing... beautiful story, beautiful talent. (review)






I also really enjoyed these books:

New Girl     Drowning Instinct

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
