The Space Between Heartbeats, by Melissa Pearl

After finishing a book I really enjoyed, I was waiting for another book I ordered to arrive. I needed something quick to read in the meantime, and though I found something on my Kindle, I read it too quickly—within 12 hours. I still had four more days to wait, so I scrolled through my Kindle […]

How to be a Mermaid, by Erin Hayes

MERMAID MONTH continues here at the Stuff, and now that my book is all edited/revised and out there in the world, I get to enjoy reading books that aren’t my own. Yay! This one has been on my Kindle since it came out last summer as part of the Falling in Deep collection of novellas. […]

Throughout the year, titles are submitted to the English/Language Arts department, and by the end of the year, they’ve whittled the list down to between three and five choices. Over the past few years, the […]
