Friday Five

1. Finished second round of edits!

2. I have a YA Books Central giveaway going on!  Check it out:

I'll be giving away signed copies of both books in the Myth & Mayhem series plus a cute Paris tote and other goodies!

3. Been working hard on latest round of revisions. My weekly critique group is helping me tighten and deepen my characters.  My goal is to get this round of revisions done before October so I can query it around again.

4.  Totally LOVED this book:

Bittersweet love story that alternates between 1938 at the beginning of World War 2 and 1989 Los Angeles. Lots of history behind stamp making. This reminded me of a Jewish THE NOTEBOOK. Heart-breaking at times, this story kept me turning the pages.

4. Also read a YA set in Paris: ON THE SPECTRUM.

The link to my YABC review:

Teaser: Coming of age story where teen goes to Paris to help her younger autistic brother while struggling with her own eating disorder issues. Mostly though this is a story about a girl and her younger half-brother and the power of love that helps them have the strength to overcome their problems.

5.  Really loved this analogy of Latin@ short stories.

The link to my YABC review:

Teaser: This is a great collection of short stories that address contemporary issues that affect young Latinos in our country.

**Guilty Pleasure:

Grabbing an iced Dunkin' Donut S'more drink. Love this flavor: I get the decaf with almond milk. It's really good and I don't get sick like I do with some Starbucks drinks.

I really loved Jillian's latest. Her one book about the sister of Anne Frank was amazing. This one is just as good! And I know, huh on the drink. It's so good!
