Friday Five

1. Still scoring essays! I have another two or so weeks to go!

And yes, at the end of the week I feel like this:




2. Got a sneak peek at my cover for NO MORE GODDESSES. It's not quite there but what I've seen so far? I'm really loving! Can't wait to reveal the final cover to everyone! Stay tuned!

3. I'm totally on a Paris kick right now! I signed up to take beginning French at Saddleback College this summer; got a niffy Paris theme handbag:



T-shirt from Urban Outfitters:




4. Here's some Parisian settings in some recent YAs I'm either reading or read:

Love this series by Amy Plum. Here's the blurb on this amazing paranormal series:

Introducing a new supernatural mythology, the DIE FOR ME trilogy presents Kate, a 16-year-old American who moves to Paris after her parents' death. She finds herself falling for Vincent, who she discovers is not the typical French teenager he appears. Love, mystery, & horror are combined in the city where dreams are sometimes the same as reality.

An ebook novella:



And the finally book in the Reverent series:



Another fun online interactive one has to be STILL SUCKS TO BE ME...EVEN IN PARIS:



What's fun about this series, is you get to chose where the characters go! And it's in Paris! Fun voice too!

Also here's a NA-New Adult-read set in Paris.



And I can't forget this fun time-travel series from Sourcebooks. It's more MG but still really enjoyed it!



5. Right now reading this:
