I find lots of interesting and wonderful things on the interwebs that I star in my Google Reader or add to my bookmarks and most of the time there they stay. This is my attempt to share them in the same vein as Yes and Yes’s Web Time Wasters and FYA Procrastination Pro Tips.

Tara from Fiction Folio reviewed Freaks Like Us — a book that wasn’t on my radar but now is thanks to her review!
Knowsprose.com had an interesting post called Adults Reading YA Fiction — What It’s Not — responding to an article trying to explain why us readers who aren’t of the YA age read YA. Hrrmm maybe if they read YA themselves they’d understand WHY we all read YA instead of formulating reasons that they think explain it all.
Anna got super creative during last week’s Top Ten Tuesday and matched some books she loved to a Halloween costume! Fun!
Both Estelle & Magan wrote really poignant and beautiful letters to their teen selves to celebrate the Dear Teen Me book coming out soon! Their letters confirmed even more why I love these two!

I needed to see this post this week. A bit of positive self talk goes a long way! I feel like I am having a hard time coming up with some positive things to say about myself because of how I feel about not being able to find a job. I have been rereading parts of this post all week. Show yourself some love and think about all you’ve accomplished!
A recipe for DIY dry shampoo! I live on dry shampoo being a person with bangs. It’s so bad for my hair to wash it every day so I don’t but if I don’t use dry shampoo my bangs get all wonky and gross.

I always love her “Take Out Fake Out” posts and this sesame chicken one is no exception!
