Z is for Zealous Book Tag #AtoZchallenge via @trincarl

The #AtoZchallenge is coming to a close today.  This was my first year attempting to write 26 posts (from A to Z)  in one month's time.  It's been fun.  I've met so many bloggers and I am proud to call myself a survivor.  
Today I'm doing a coffee book tag.  This is something I saw on youtube.  You basically find books on your bookshelf that represent coffee or caffeinated beverages.

Let's get started!


I used to work for Starbucks but that's a story for another day. I also used to work for Caribou so I guess that makes two stories for different two days.  

I keep on seeing "Brain on Fire" by Susannah Cahalan. Whether it's on a Booktube channel or Goodreads or Amazon, etc.

Y is for Yearlong book list #AtoZchallenge via @trincarl #amreading

Intimidiating Book Tag is something I came across on Booktube.  It's basically answering questions about your TBR (to be read) pile.  

Let's get started....
1.A book on your TBR pile that you haven't finished

My dad is a die-hard Stephen King. fan  I went out to purchase Under the Dome as my first Stephen King novel, but I found it daunting.  Lots of characters and very rambling plot.  Although the premise seemed intriguing: tells the story of a small Maine town whose residents are suddenly cut off from the rest of the world with a indestructible dome preventing them from escaping.

Author Milli Gilbert is interviewing today as part of my YA blog tour and also helping me out with my #AtoZchallenge (writing 26 blog posts within 30 days)

Milli's novel in progress Nerdgasm,  is an "adult" romance, and her first novel. It's about a waitress/engineering PhD student, and a video game programmer from London who looks/sounds like a celebrity -- and gets a lot of crap about it. It'll be released on Black friday of this year, in print and ebook.

And onto the interview...
