Estelle: WEVerb12 Prompts (15, 18, 20, 24, 26)

December is always so unbelievably busy… I’ve done a terrible job keeping up with WEverb12 but the best thing about this project is you can jump in whenever you can. So I’m back to look at some of the questions I missed. If you’re looking to reflect on the year, be sure to visit weverb12.com. […]

VeganYANerds - These are some lovely memories and photos, Estelle! I’m going to check out the website and find out more about WeVerb

Alexa Y. - I actually just caught up on WEverb posts this week as well, so I definitely agree when I say that I think it’s awesome that you can jump in at any time!

This is a lovely post. I’m happy that I can actually say we were friends already during most of the big things you mentioned (your cruise, moving out of your house and into the apartment) – I think it’s pretty rad.

Here’s to more joy and fun and bookish adventures in 2013!

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - Such great responses, Estelle, and I love the pics that you included too! I, too, kind of fell off the WEverb wagon, but I like how you said that you can just jump in when you can. I was going to pre-post a bunch leading up to the holidays, but it seemed to kind of defeat the purpose of reflecting a bit at a time, so I opted to just have the holiday week off, then jump back in.

And I totally agree with you that more joy = no negativity, as hard as that may be sometimes. Here’s to a super positive 2013!

Estelle: Sweet Summertime Reads – A Jennifer E. Smith Party!

Once I read The Statistical Probably of Love at First Sight, I was dead set on reading all of Jennifer E. Smith’s books. So I did. And this is what I discovered: Her writing is always rich, lyrical, and beautiful. Her characters are relatable and multi-dimensional. Family is always a central theme. Her books are […]

VeganYANerds - I love that you can connect so strongly to all of Jen’s books, Estelle and I really enjoyed the photos you included in this post! I did like TSPOLAFS so I would like to read her other two books 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - As usual E, you’ve managed to convince me that I MUST read the rest of her books. I just read STAT during my vacation, but I’m now looking forward to reading her other novels!

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - This is such a great post! I love the photo collages and the personal connections to each book! I’m waiting for TSPoLAFS to come in at the library, but I’m excited to see that ALL of her books are equally amazing! I love discovering a new writer and then devouring her books one by one (like my current Magan-inspired Morgan Matson binge!!!!)

Ginger @ GReads! - Oh how I adore this post!! Love all the photo collages & how you identified personally with each book, Estelle. I’ve only read STAT, but I seriously enjoyed it. Based on your reviews here I think I need to pick up the Comeback Season really soon. Thank you for spotlighting an author I don’t see too much attention on, but definitely deserves it!
