This would make an excellent YA book … like, he undertook some kind of crazy cloning experiment to get both cars, or maybe he made a deal with a witch in exchange for the magic to make a double of himself.

Luckily, I always travel with a book, just in case I have to wait on line for Santa, or some such inconvenience.

David LevithanDash & Lily’s Book of Dares (via duttonbooks)

This is my annual Christmas read to get in the holiday spirit. Love the wit and whimsy!

'If I Stay' Trailer (by MTV)

The book wrecked me (every time I read it), the trailer wrecked me (when Denny is holding baby Teddy? Oh god … just ugly sobbing through to the end), and I’m pretty sure I’m going to be a loud, sobbing, blubbering mess. I’m going to this movie with an entire box of kleenex.

This is one of my very favorite books, and from the looks of the trailer, Hollywood might just get it right. I mean honestly, the casting of Mia’s parents is perfection, and I love that Adam is handsome, but also looks like a normal dude (which he IS). Don’t let me down!

So my older brother was in a book store and picked up a book about the difficulties faced by same sex parents in society today when a woman came up and bitched him out for being “too young to be reading a book about THAT sort of people.” He saw that she was carrying the third Hunger Games Book so he stared her dead in the eyes and hissed “Prim dies.” and walked away and I have never been prouder to have him as my sibling.

“That was when I decided to take seriously the person I actually am rather than try to be a person whom others define as serious. Leaving academia to write fiction for children and teenagers was a return to that person I had been — the one who laughed easily, who liked makeup and baking and dance. I stopped being afraid of being thought silly or weak and instead pushed myself to be more than competent at the things I loved best to do. I am true now to what brings me joy and to what I do well — and most of the time, to hell with the rest.”
