Why It’s OK to Give up on a Book: The DNF Doubt

For those who don’t know, DNF stands for did not finish. I had to look it up when I first came across it because I’m at that awkward age where I’m a millennial, but I don’t know all the lingo the kids are using these days. Anyway, DNF hadn’t been a part of my vocabulary,Continue reading “Why It’s OK to Give up on a Book: The DNF Doubt”

Audio Books! Can I Get An Amen?

I started listening to audio books a little over a year ago, hesitant to take on the endeavor because I thought, “I can’t possibly pay attention to a story if I’m listening to it.” Of course, that logic is flawed because that’s how I used to take in stories when I was a kid, beforeContinue reading “Audio Books! Can I Get An Amen?”

Meagan Reads YA Sci-Fi: Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Read this book for the 26 book reading challenge I started a couple of years ago and am still chugging through for the category “a book set in summer.” The whole novel takes place in Portland, Maine in the summer before a life-changing event takes place in the main character’s life.

Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima

I’m going into my third year of the 26 book reading challenge (I’m a slow reader–sue me). For book 17, “a book by an author you love,” I went with Cinda Williams Chima’s The Demon King since I loved her Heir series. A quick rundown of the story. It follows the lives of two characters: Raisa,Continue reading “Meagan Reads YA Fantasy: The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima”

Finding the Right Romance Novel: Tales From a Reluctant Romantic

I’ve read Pride & Prejudice and was smitten. All Cassandra Clare books? Fell like a sucker. I watch The Vampire Diaries and am a hardcore Delena shipper. I openly admit that watching A Walk to Remember still makes me ugly sob. So what is it about the romance genre label that keeps me at bay?Continue reading “Finding the Right Romance Novel: Tales From a Reluctant Romantic”

Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

As part of the 26 book reading challenge I’ve been participating in for about a year now (I’m such a slow reader these days), I chose to read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte for the category “a book that’s over 10 years old.” A quick summary of the novel: Jane Eyre is an orphan growingContinue reading “Meagan Reads Classics: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte”

One Book At A Time

I am drowning in a sea of things to read. My double-stacked book shelves taunt me with their tomes. My Goodreads TBR list laughs at my folly. My kindle glares at me as I time and time again pass it over for a physical text. When did it get so hard to read? As aContinue reading “One Book At A Time”

War, What Is It Good For?

I recently took on a reading challenge this past year, and in that time, I’ve read Anthony Swofford’s Jarhead, and now I’m currently in the middle of reading James Bradley’s Flags of Our Fathers.  The categories I chose these books for are “a book based on a true story” and “a book with a blueContinue reading “War, What Is It Good For?”

All Books Matter

Browsing my city’s Barnes & Noble, I figured it would be a long shot, but thought, What the hell? Why not give it a try?  My dad had been looking a long time for a book of poetry by a Spanish writer named Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer.  Believe me, it’s a hard thing to come by.Continue reading “All Books Matter”

A Quick Introduction

Hello, world! My name is Meagan, and I’m a writer. What do I write? A little bit of everything honestly. I love to write poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and I’ve even dabbled in script writing. However, it’s not just creative writing I’m capable of. As my interests include books, television and music, I enjoy writing reviewsContinue reading “A Quick Introduction”
