July 11, 2014 - 10:38amThe Internet is full of hilarious gems and memorable words of wisdom from the masses.

July 10, 2014 - 12:50pmWhen Harper Teen first announced Victoria Aveyard's Red Queen, I knew it was a book I had to have. With its exciting fantasy premise involving magic, secrets and rebellion, what's not to love? Am I right? And then a few weeks ago, they revealed the cover and I had a fanboy moment that involved lots of gushing and flailing. So let's take a look!Mare Barrow’s world is divided by blood — those with red and those with silver. Mare and her family are lowly Reds, destined to serve the Silver elite whose supernatural abilities make them nearly gods. Mare steals what she can to help her family survive, but when her best friend is conscripted into the army, she gambles everything to win his freedom.

July 10, 2014 - 11:11amWhile we all love a strong hero, we love a strong heroine even more. Sadly, strong heroines aren't always as easy to find despite being incredibly important. Today, in celebration of her newest novel, The Kiss of Deception, YA author Mary E. Pearson shares her thoughts on the importance of writing strong women. Take a look: Women are strong. Damn strong. And clever. And brave. And resourceful. Their strengths are vast and varied and they use them every day to survive and make our world better — and their strength can be different from men’s in a myriad of ways. We aren’t just rewriting a male hero in a dress. It’s important to celebrate a woman’s strengths without a man’s strengths even coming into the equation.
