Happy end of the week! Hopefully yours was short and stress free. For me, everything has gotten better since Sunday, when I left book club to walk to my friend's car in the snow. In the snow. It takes some serious commitment to YA to brave those kind of conditions. Anyway, lots to links to get to, so let’s get started.
