Blog Hiatus | #TiffinNYC!

Hello friends! Just dropping in to let you know about my blog hiatus! I’ll be at Book Expo in New York City for the next week and I’m probably not going to get any posts up. If you’re looking to follow my adventures, be sure to follow #TiffatBookExpo17 as well as my regular Twitter and Instagram feeds. I’ll be posting as much as I can! Also, if you’re going to New York this week, and you see me, please say hi! I would love to chat with you! I’ll be at Blogbound on Wed night, and wandering the floor at Book […]

#TiffTakesAsia | Blog Hiatus (Sorta)

blog hiatus  aka #tifftakesasia Hi guys, if you follow me on social media, you know that #TiffTakesAsia is happening TODAY.  Yes, that’s right, as you read this, I am probably on a plane with my husband, headed to Hong Kong to see my family, followed by Taipei and Tokyo! But not to worry, even though I’m gone, the blog is not. You’ll still be seeing reviews on Mostly YA Lit for some of fall’s hottest titles, starting with Leave Me by Gayle Forman (this week!). I won’t be doing any memes while I’m gone, though, and I won’t super responsive on […]

Ten Facts About Me | Top Ten Tuesday

Ten Facts About Me | Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a fun and personal one: top ten facts about me! I have an about page, but sometimes I forget to talk about myself enough in my blogs, so I’m excited for you to get to know me better (and vice versa!). In writing this post, I thought I’d try to focus on things that I don’t talk about a lot on this blog – my interests, obsessions, and just…life outside my blog. Here we go: 1. I’m a singer. This is probably the biggest part of my life I don’t talk about! I’m a […]

10 YA Books That Promote LGBTQ, Diversity & Compassion | Top Ten Tuesday

10 YA Books That Promote LGBTQ, Diversity & Compassion | Top Ten Tuesday

I’m taking a few liberties with this week’s #TopTenTuesday topic, which is books we’re looking forward to for the back half of 2016. In the wake of what happened in Orlando on Sunday, and the scary and sometimes completely incomprehensible violence around us, I thought I’d use this week’s #TTT to highlight some recent and upcoming books that promote inclusivity, diversity, and compassion, especially for the LGBTQ community. For me, the book community is a place where everyone is welcome and tolerated, whether you’re a geek or a nerd, a white person, a person of color, an introvert or an extrovert, […]

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim | Top Ten Tuesday

Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim | Top Ten Tuesday

Hi guys, today I’m chatting about ten books I picked up on a whim. Honestly, nowadays it’s hard for me to find this kind of book because I talk to people about books so much, and I have so many favorite authors…but I definitely still have moments where I find something in a catalogue and I’m really excited. Some of these will go back to pre-blogging days, so this was a bit of a nostalgic post for me…but I think these are still pretty relevant to what catches my eye these days! I’m restricting this to books that I have read […]

Impressions: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour | #UnexpectedlyEpic #MorganMatsonWeek

Impressions: Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour | #UnexpectedlyEpic #MorganMatsonWeek

Today for Morgan Matson Week, I’m taking you way, way back to the beginning of my love affair with Morgan Matson’s books to her debut, Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour. Each part of this post was written at a different time – weeks before re-reading, right before, and after. Writing this post has been a journey into my memories and who I was five years ago – and how much I’ve changed (thank you, Morgan, as usual, for the reflective inspiration!). And, so you don’t think it’s just me who’s having a nostalgic moment, Ambur at Burning Impossibly Bright is […]

Things I’m Swooning Over | Lately…on Mostly YA Lit

Things I’m Swooning Over | Lately…on Mostly YA Lit

Lately…on Mostly YA Lit is a new feature where I talk about things I’m watching, reading, loving or doing lately. Inspired by Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner‘s “New to the Queue” feature, Lately…will be my catch-all personal blogging feature where I tell you a little about my life at the moment. Hello all! Today I’m doing a special post on things I’m swooning over lately – whether it’s book boy/girlfriends, TV, webseries, and more. The impetus for this post? My #OTSPSecretSister! If you don’t know about the On The Same Page Secret Sister Project, it’s a essentially a penpal project […]
