love right now

It often happens that when I’m blogging less, I’m writing more. That’s certainly the case at this moment in time–I’m spending every minute that I can writing like crazy. So for the foreseeable future, you may see quite a lot of “love right now” posts because that’s all my brain seems to be capable of compiling once I’m done with my (writing) work for the day.

Anyway. I hope that is all right with you, blog readers!

Here’s what I love right now, the red edition:

*Birds of Prey by Christina Aguilera. Someone on twitter clued me in to this song, which I had not heard until now (admittedly, I have not heard most of Christina’s songs). It is EERILY perfect for the series. Many thanks to the reader who let me know about it!

*Red Mango frozen yogurt, plain with strawberries.

*EVERNEATH, by Brodi Ashton. I loved this book before now, but somehow I hadn’t mentioned it yet! What is wrong with me? Brodi’s blog is one of the funniest and best out there. Which I love. And her book is not funny. Which I love. It does have moments of humor, but what I loved most about this book is that it is the story of a girl trying to do the right thing, even when it is very, very hard, even when people don’t understand her at all. It’s also well-plotted, very romantic, and based on the Persephone myth.

Anything else out there I should be reading, hearing, eating? Do tell.

Okay. Back to work for me!

  • If we’re talking about red things I’ll tell you something yummy my husband discovered recently. You get frozen strawberries, heat a bowl full in the microwave for a minute or two, and top them with cottage cheese and a little sugar. It tastes like strawberry cheesecake, no joke! Probably healthier too.

    i just started following your blog, and i love that you share what you love right now which are things that i love, too: books and music! doesn’t music set the tone for book-reading, and doesn’t reading a book (or writing in your case) give a feel for the right song? and to me, food means love, hehehe! i love a good combo…

    It’s funny that you chose to talk about Evernath now, since I’m reading it. I love Nikki’s character and the constant suspense of the Tunnels (which were written beautifully). Red mango frozen yogurt sounds amazing, and I will definitely need to try it sometime soon.

    I found this really awesome recipe for really tasty (but probably not so healthy πŸ˜‰ ) brownies in a mug. You take
    1tbs of flour
    1 of brown sugar
    1 of cocoa powder
    1 pinch of salt
    1 tbs of vegetable oil
    and 1 of water.
    Then you stir it and put it in the microwave for 30 SECONDS. No more. No less. And Voila perfect brownie in a cup. πŸ™‚

      I always put them in mugs but pretty much any cup (not plastic) should work πŸ˜€

    I will have to give Everneath a read. Another reworking of the Persephone myth is the Abandon trilogy by Meg Cabot. Two books out right now: Abandon & Underworld. I enjoyed both.

    I also saw your post on A Tale Dark & Grimm. Very snarky & enjoyable (& macabre). I started reading it to my first graders as a read-aloud . . . they loved it !
