RTW: Fave reads of 2011

RTW: Fave reads of 2011

  Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.   This week’s topic: What were your top five favorite books of 2011? I didn’t read many books that were published in 2011 because I was trying to catch up with a few goodies that released on previous years, but, since the question leaves that end open, I chose five books that I read in 2011, regardless of when they were published. But only 5? That’s gonna be hard … I could choose 10 titles easily, but 5… Read more »

During the holidays …

During the holidays …

  Hey guys =) I’m leaving today for my parents’ house for the holidays and I know there will be parties every single day (too many birthdays in the family in between Christmas and New Year. Five to be exact. Not kidding!), so I may get a little busy and distracted over there, resulting in no blog posts over here. I’ll bring my laptop and, even though the net is not great at my parents’, I’ll try to participate on the next RTW from YAHighway, but I’m not promising anything. I have blog posts scheduled for Christmas and New Year, so I won’t wish you anything right now hehe. See you later! Cheers,

RTW: The only shopping I like

RTW: The only shopping I like

  Road Trip Wednesday is a “Blog Carnival,” where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.   This week’s topic:   Where do you buy most of your books? No one is judging!   I buy e-books at Amazon.com.     *The title of the post refers to buying books as the only shopping I like, cause I hate, HATE shopping. Even clothes, shoes, anything. I love having them, hate going to the mall to shop.    I have a good explanation, though. When I used to live in the US, I went to… Read more »
