Go read some of… Continue reading The High School Musical Book Tag

Jane Austen Character Book Tag

One thing I love about the blogosphere: the amount of creativity and number of shared interests in the community mean I don't have to make my own book tags. Case in point, Madame Writer created a Jane Austen Character book tag.

10 Day Book Blog Post Challenge #9: Write about a favorite ship

R.I.P. It or Ship It: Round 8

For round 8, I picked Harriet Smith from Emma and General Hux from Star Wars Background According to Regency social conventions, Harriet Smith is worth nothing.
