Friday Five

1. Sorry I didn't write a Friday Five post last week. Was busy finishing up copy edits on the sequel to CROSSED OUT! Can't wait for it to come out!

My sequel has more paranormal happenings and some spells. I had a lot of fun writing this one!


2. On the other news, got a couple emails with charges for things I didn't buy. One from a Staples in New Mexico for $322 and another one from the UK for $200. Had to get copies of my credit report and also put freezes on my accounts. I'm afraid someone might have opened a credit card in my maiden name.

Then to make matters worse, found out that Equifax had a mega breach. Even more fishy was that some executives sold stock right before disclosing what happened:

So will be watching accounts. Recommend that everyone at least get a copy of their credit reports to see if their credit has been compromised. Better safe than sorry.

3. Did get some more reading in.  Finishing up this fun, sweet romance:

This is the second book in an adorable MG tale of a girl that must teens are sure to relate with.

YA Books Central review coming soon!

4.

Think creepy trees with spores that cause 'forgetting.' Only these trees are on an alien planet and we're the aliens!  Really loved this spooky at times Sci-Fi companion novel to THE FORGETTING. Totally recommend!

5. 

Really loved the voice in this diverse contemporary tale of a young Latina coming to terms with the death of her 'perfect' sister.

Here's the link to my YA Books Central review:

Teaser: Humorous and poignant look at a sister dealing with the loss of her sister and coming to terms with the expectations of not only her Mexican immigrant parents but breaking down the stereotypes around her. A must read for those who love diverse contemporary stories with strong characters.

**Guilty Pleasure:

Going out tonight! Love  fountain drinks. I usually ask for a diet cherry, vanilla coke.
