Monday Inspiration: Books

Books have and will always be a big inspiration. Some books inspire you to write. Some inspire you to run outside and spin around in the rain. Some inspire you to spend an hour snuggled on the couch with someone you love. And some inspire you to be better. A better writer. A better mother. […]

RTW: Movie > Book

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in YA Highway’s RTW. Here is this week’s post: What movie have you seen that actually (gasp!) improved on the book? This is actually an easy one.
