Be Back Soon

So... it's okay if you haven't noticed, but I haven't been around very much. I have very big goals for being around this spring/summer, though. The semester ends tomorrow, and finals end on the next Wednesday (4/24). After that: I AM BACK, BABY!

Which book character should I turn myself into?

Ready for a random question?

This semester I’m in a makeup class. For our final project we have to turn ourselves into a character/creature from a book/play. It has to be from a book or play (as opposed to TV or film) because we have to interpret the textual description to create our own character. We cannot copy something that has already been done.

I have NO IDEA what to do! I would really rather avoid something that has a beard/hair (it’s gross). I can do wounds/scars really well. I could also do something like put a third eye in my forehead.

Can you think of any characters/creatures I could do? I need your collective brain power, squeakers! The two ideas I have right now are the guy who's turning to stone from Reckless or a special from the Uglies books. But I can't really remember the description of the specials...

Much love and appreciation!

Summary: (spoilers. Highlight to view)
Ana has always been the only one. Asunder. Apart. But after Templedark, when many residents of Heart were lost forever, some hold Ana responsible for the darksouls–and the newsouls who may be born in their place.

Many are afraid of Ana’s presence, a constant reminder of unstoppable changes and the unknown. When sylph begin behaving differently toward her and people turn violent, Ana must learn to stand up not only for herself but for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

Ana was told that nosouls can’t love. But newsouls? More than anything, she wants to live and love as an equal among the citizens of Heart, but even when Sam professes his deepest feelings, it seems impossible to overcome a lifetime of rejection.

Blurb: Incarnate raised a lot of brilliant questions, and Asunder rose to the challenge. Buckle up. These answers will blow you away.

Review: Woah. I'll keep this short to avoid being spoilery. But woah. I LOVED Incarnate and I was amazed at how Jodi was able to weave together so many (seemingly) unconnected plot elements. Asunder takes that weave and makes you step back to see the whole tapestry. Yup. That's right. This book deserves an analogy.

There were literally some moments where I gasped aloud. I will admit that the first bit went a little slow, but that was okay with me because we were meeting new people. The "slow"-ness made me feel like I was really connecting with them. And there's no sequel-phase! Hurrah!

I would still classify this as a "bridge-book" as it wasn't as action-packed as the first, and I can tell the third will have a lot more action. But it's probably the best bridge-book I've read in a long time.

*I am an amazon affiliate. If you purchase this book using my link, I will get a tiny fraction of the purchase, which goes toward contests.

Are you missing a prize?!

I am disclaimer-ing this post by saying that I HATE APRIL FOOL'S DAY. I hate that it's just a day that gives permission to lie. It's the gullible person (AKA me) nightmare.


Do I still owe you a prize? Someone contacted me on twitter that their prize that I THOUGHT had shipped in February still hadn't arrived. Turns out that a lot of important e-mails (like the fact that I hadn't filled out my information on that order correctly) have been going to my old Yahoo account, which I don't check anymore. It doesn't help that this has been the craziest semester EVER. But there's only 3 weeks left of school!!

If I owe you a prize PLEASE contact me!! The CORRECT e-mail address is I will do all I can to get your book(s) to you ASAP.
