Magan’s Farewell to 2013

I just can’t even … how is today the last day of 2013? I’m flabbergasted, really.

Alexa S. - I loved reading your survey, M!

And I definitely have to check out the books by Sara Zarr and Lindsey Leavitt! I also love that you were more personal with us this year, particularly when it came to your pregnancy and your foster daughter. As always, wishing you lots of love — and extra reading mojo too! <3

Michelle (Pink Polka Dot Book Blog) - I really liked Winger too!! And Rainbow Rowell became one of my fav new authors for sure. I mean FANGIRL!!! I’m glad you liked the Confessions of an Angry girl series. I swear it doesn’t get enough love and I really want the rest of the series to get picked up by the publisher! I love Tom Leveen, but need to read Manicpixiedreamgirl. It sounds like I would love it. (If you haven’t read Party, it’s really good.) Good luck with the new baby… I got a lot of reading done when I had my son, but don’t know if I got enough sleep that I would have been able to form sentences to describe what I read 🙂 Happy 2014!

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - You are amazing! I know that you will embrace life with your new little one with the same grace and ease that you’ve applied to everything else thus far. And, honestly? I think I had more reading time when Marko was super little…except that I was tired more ;). It’s all about balance, and I’m sure you’ll find yours in no time! I, for one, can’t WAIT to meet your new little one! I’m sure that Baby B can hang on for you to finish Ignite Me 😉
