WOW.

That is all I have to say about The Keatyn Chronicles.

I’ve followed Keatyn on her journey for so long and I’m unbelievably proud of all she’s done.

Jillian Dodd did an amazing job with the series which makes it so hard to say goodbye..

The drama, the characters, and everything else in between was divine chaos.

Perfect. Divine. Chaos.

Aiden, Dawson, Riley, Maggie, Katie, Dallas, and even Whitney grew on me and I found myself fall in love with their drama, their relationships, and their hearts.

I don’t want to give too much away because I highly HIGHLY recommend you read the series. But I will tell you that you will be on a never-ending rollercoaster of emotions.

Goodbye Keatyn and see you the next time I re-read the entire series. 🙂

Until next time….

Bonjour Bookworms!

I have finally returned from my trip to Europe. It has been such a great month of traveling, but I’m so happy to come back to blogging again! Traveling Europe has opened my eyes to a new and spectacular world. It was a beautiful experience and I can’t wait to return! For the past month, I’ve been eating gelato in Italy, skiing the slopes in Switzerland, trying escargot in France, and tormenting the palace guards in England.

These next few weeks will be a bit unorganized and hectic since I will be trying to make up posts and reviews that I’ve missed, so bear with me!

I’m so excited to share a few of my pictures from my trip with you all!

On my first day in Italy, I visited the Roman Colosseum! It was great to see a big piece of Ancient Rome.

I also had to make a wish at the Trevi Fountain. Hopefully, I will return to Rome one day!

On my last day in Italy, I went to the city of Tivoli and fell in love with the scenery. The town, the buildings, and the people were so amazing!

After Italy, I traveled to Wengen, Switzerland. Switzerland was definitely my favorite country to visit. It was great to take a break from the hot weather and busy streets in Italy. Witnessing the snowfall, the mountains, and the waterfalls was so refreshing and peaceful!

In Switzerland, I visited the Jungfrau Mountain and had a great snow-ski day!

Leaving Switzerland was a bittersweet moment, but I was excited to move on to Paris! The Eiffel Tower was such a great spectacle. Paris was everything I imagined it to be. The little cafes, the effortlessly fashionable people, and of course the shopping was perfect. During my visit in Paris, I did TRY escargots (snails) and although the experience was rather peculiar, snails are actually pretty tasty! Weird right?

I ended my Europe trip in London, England. The UK was so much fun. I enjoyed learning about England’s history and admiring its amazing architecture. I even saw Wicked the Musical in London, which was PERFECT. Wicked is my new favorite musical and I currently have all the songs on repeat!

Thank you all so much for being amazing followers and following me through this journey! I am beyond grateful to have you guys!

Until next time….

Welcome to another Feature Friday, Bookworms!

 Every Friday, you can see cool bookish videos, announcements, guest bloggers, author interviews, and much more! So come back and see what’s new! If you are a blogger or author who would like to participate in a Feature Friday, contact me through my email: bookworm(underscore)tothemax(at)yahoo(dot)com ! As always, leave a comment if you have any questions, comments, or just want to say hi!

This Friday, I am proud to have Rebekah Crane here on Bookwormstothemax. Thank you so much Rebekah for taking the time to do an interview!

 

Eileen: Your upcoming novel, Aspen, will be released pretty soon. How would you describe it in one word?

Rebekah: Honest.

 

Eileen: Aspen has some interesting characters. Were they based on people you know?

Rebekah: No one specific. Sometimes character’s little quirks are inspired by people I know (like Leona and Toaster in ASPEN), but never anything big. Though I will say, there is something about Ben that is very specific to me, but I’m not revealing that. 🙂

 

Eileen: If you had to choose, which writer (or writers) would you consider as a mentor?

Rebekah: Jane Austen, Jane Austen, JANE AUSTEN! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Ok, I won’t list everything, but she is my idol. Her ease of wit and humor is amazing. Her slight (and not slight) commentary on society and the inner workings of people is truly brilliant. Yes… I want to have her brain.

 

Eileen: What book/books are you reading now?

Rebekah: I have a few books going at the same time. Right now, I’m just about done with Bethany Crandell’s YA debut SUMMER ON THE SHORT BUS. It’s brilliant. She and I are so similar it’s crazy. We might take over the world together. I’m also reading Jessica Park’s new novel FLAT-OUT CELESTE. I’ve been with the book since the beginning; I’m so damn invested and I love this story. And I just downloaded LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS.

 

Eileen: As a writer, what is the hardest part in writing a novel?

Rebekah: For me, it’s patience. So much of publishing is waiting. Waiting for the story to take shape. Waiting for editors to get back to you. Waiting for readers to read your book. Waiting for publication dates. And it never ends. When one book goes to print, there’s always another story to be written. I have to remind myself to breathe.

 

Eileen: What advice would you give an aspiring author (a.k.a Meeeee!)?

Rebekah: Learn to take criticism and find good people to give it to you.

 

Eileen: Is there a reason you chose to write novels in the Young Adult genre over other genres?

Rebekah: I never considered writing anything other than YA. Teenagers are so raw. Everything sits on the surface and at the same time is buried so deep. It’s awesome to explore that within characters and stories.

 

Eileen: When did you decide to become an author?

Rebekah: When I turned 30. I’m not one of those people who knew that they wanted to be a writer from birth. I wanted to star on Broadway when I was in high school. I wasn’t even in honors English.

 

Eileen: How do you get rid of writer’s block?

Rebekah: I do a lot of yoga. I also talk to my writer friends. They help a lot.

 

Eileen: What are you working on now? a sequel? anything new?

Rebekah: My next book is called CONDITIONS OF EXISTENCE. It’s a dark comedy about a summer camp for teenagers with “heightened mental and emotional states”– basically kids with depression, anxiety, compulsive lying, eating disorders, all the way to schizophrenia. I pitched it as The Breakfast Club on crack at summer camp. I absolutely LOVE writing it.

There you have it bookworms! Aspen releases June 5th. Buy it. Read it. Love it.

Thank you for joining us again, Rebekah!

Author Bio

Rebekah_Crane-e1397169744121

Rebekah Crane fell in love with YA literature while studying Secondary English Education at Ohio University. After having two kids, living in six different cities, and finally settling down in the foothills of her beloved Rocky Mountains, her first novel, PLAYING NICE, was published. ASPEN, her second YA novel, set in Boulder, CO, is due to release in summer 2014 from In This Together Media. She now spends her day carpooling kids or tucked behind a laptop at 7,500 ft high in the Rockies, where the altitude only enhances the experience.

I am so excited to share this book with you all.

I bet most of you know by now that I absolutely LOVE Colleen Hoover. She writes, in my opinion, the best contemporary romance novels. I recently did a review on her newest book, Maybe Someday (See the review here). Her next book is called…

Ugly Love

Goodreads Summary: When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

The cover has not been released yet, but I am so excited to see it! Ugly Love will be released August 5th, 2014.

Until next time…
