Follow Friday! (3)

And first, a word from our sponsors, Meggie's Brain. Meggie has been working on her magnum opus for the past week nonstop, which is why Megan has still not finishes ASHES, ASHES. Trust me when I say that this will be resolved soon. Until then, please enjoy Follow Friday and maybe a Review from the Goodreads Archives tomorrow!

Q. What do I do when I are not reading?

I am currently working on my own YA project, editing an adult urban fantasy manuscript and readying it for querying, and I am looking for a job in the NYC or DC areas (anyone have any ideas? LOL). I have six years of higher education and have yet to productively use it. I also make jewelry for my cats and watch Netflix like a madwoman! I knit, scrapbook, collect postcards via Postcrossing, collect stamps, collect souvenir fridge magnets, and travel. I enjoy long walks on the beach and moonlit strolls through the park. Oh, wait, not a dating ad? Crap. (Any potential suitors, particularly hot single NHL players, please email me.)
I will actually get out there and do some following tomorrow, but right now I am about to pass out. Just thought I would do this before I forgot! Can't wait to hear what everyone else does with their non-blogging time :D


  1. Thanks for stopping by The Bawdy Book Blog! You should TOTALLY move to DC (not that I'm biased or anything, haha). I love it here (except the traffic, that really sucks), and lots of jobs!
    It's also very culturally diverse with lots to do here. :)
    I've always wanted to learn how to scrapbook...but never enough time!
    Anyway, you have a new follower =)


  2. New follower here. Good luck with your job search! I've given up on finding anything in this podunk town and am just concentrating on graduating. At least I'm rounding the bend! Happy hopping. :)

  3. Hopping through. Postcard collecting sounds cool. I used to keep all the postcards I got when I was a kid. My aunt travels a lot so I had some good ones.

  4. LOL moon lite walks, huh? Nice.

    Here's mine:

  5. Old follower stopping through. Traveling sounds nice, and I've also failed to productively use my degree. I sometimes feel like it was a waste of time and money. Though I love my college experience. Good luck finding a job hon!

  6. Hopping by via Parajunkee's Follow Friday.

    Love your answer.. does it matter which NHL team? I'm partial to the Blackhawks and Penguins myself.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. NYC is a hard place to get a job even when getting jobs are good. I don't know about DC . We just moved from NY 3 years ago back to PA.

    We loves us some Netflix too. New Follower!

  12. You stay super busy! What kind of jewelry do you make for your cats? Sounds pretty neat! Old follower :)

  13. Ha! Another Netflix fiend! I usually don't get to speak to many like myself. LOL New follower!

  14. Sounds like you're quite busy! Busy can definately keep life interesting.

    I'm a fellow Netflix crazy person. We love the instant for watching TV shows too (King of the Hill, South Park, Family Guy, Buffy, etc.) :) So mad about the new plans though! Boo :(

    Old follower! :)

  21. Hey there. New to blogging and book reviewing over at, come on over and check it out. I'm on an Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance kick at the moment, but enjoy a good YA on occasion. Let me know what you think and, hey, if you get too many hits from hot, single, NHL players, forward them to me?

  22. It sounds like you keep busy in the real world. Its been fun seeing what people do in there non-bookish time. New Follower!

  23. That all sounds really cool! I'm a current YA-writer-in-the-making, just like you are! I'll definitely be picking up your book when it comes out on the shelves! ;)

    Besides blogging and reading (and writing), I usually just hang out with my friends and go for long walks around my subdivision, saying hi to random strangers!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend! :)

  24. Love the post! Water totally relaxes me so I try to get to the beach whenever I can. Hi! Just stopping by. Following you from Follow My Book Blog Friday Blog Hop. Would love a visit and a follow back on my blog: Thanks! Nice to meet you!

  25. Seriously? Cat Jewelry? You are one brave lady, my cat would probably scratch my eyes out if I tried to accessorize him! The closest I ever got was a glittery collar (so cool). When I'm not reading I'm probably cooking or try to learn a new crafty skill like cross stitching.
