Friday Obsessions: Dahlia Adler, WHISPERS IN AUTUMN, and Kiss The Girl

Hey, sweet readers!

Well, it's been an insane week.  I started back at work, and have been finding myself completely exhausted at the end of every day just from the sheer effort of leaving the house, I suppose.

Writing wise? I'm trying to get back into Chrome, and not being too successful, to be honest. Could use some good old fashioned butt-kicking on that front. Fingers crossed that this weekend is more productive.

Allllrighty. That was boring. Let's just move right on to the obsessions, shall we?

1. Dahlia Adler. All of her.
Dahlia and I were on the same team in the Writer's Voice Contest (Team CupidsLC FTW!) and we signed with our agents in the same week. There's no one I would rather have shared my agent week with. She's super hilarious, totally kickass, and wrote an amazing MS, BEHIND THE SCENES. When it comes out, you all should buy it without thinking. Don't worry, I'll remind you.

Anyhow, Dahlia interviewed me on her blog today!!! And it was super self-indulgent but also tons of fun. So go over and see us chatting.


2. WHISPERS IN AUTUMN by Trisha Leigh
I "met" Trisha on Twitter right before her book released, and she's a sweetie pie. The book's cover is stunning, and the preview was awesome, so I bought it.

YOU GUYS.
Whispers in Autumn (The Last Year, #1)


I only got 5% of the way through, and I'm obsessed. Like,  I'm counting down the hours till I can get home and get my  kids into bed so I can keep reading.


Go buy a copy. Now. Beautiful writing, great premise, and you can't beat that price.


3.  "Kiss the Girl" sung by Ashley Tisdale
You know how you're really obsessed with a song, but you feel like you should probably listen to some other songs, because it's kind of lame to keep pushing "repeat" and then rocking out to the same refrain over and over and over again? And so you do listen to some other songs, but they dont' make you smile and bop your head like That One Song and you're really just waiting for the other songs to end so you can go back to the obsession?

Yep. Just listen, and then try to tell me you're not rocking out to this  version of the song from "The Little Mermaid."





Welp, that's it for me! What about you, sweet readers? What were you obsessed with this week?

  1. Judging by one embarrassingly bizarre dream, one awesome redux on my Kindle, and the interview on my blog, I'm thinking the answer to that is pretty obvious. (HINT IT IS LEIGH ANN KOPANS BY THE WAY)

    1. OMG IT'S MUTUAL. I wonder if this sort of thing makes thunderstorms and power outages like the Meeting of the Egos.

    2. Everyone in the NY Metropolitan area had better watch out come February. If there is a blizzard I am absolutely going to attribute it to our finally meeting. And if there isn't, I'm going to suggest that our finally meeting saved NY from a blizzard.

    3. Well, one or the other will happen. And either way,yes, we're responsible. #egoclub

  2. 1. I am glad you met Dahlia because that's how I met Dahlia and I am totally obsessed and in love with Dahlia and I'm just going to keep saying her name over and over. Dahlia.

    2. That cover is GORGEOUS. I MUST OWN IT.

    3. I saw you listening to this on Spotify yesterday, and listened, and YES. ALL THE YES.

    And last- you're fantastic.

    2. I normally frown upon not getting First Reply Rights to Megan, but I'll let it slide this time.

  3. I LOVE THAT SONG SO MUCH I'M ON MY THIRD LISTEN ALREADY. The Little Mermaid is my favorite Disney movie of all time! But I'm going to have to turn it off for now, because it's basically the exact opposite mood I need for my WIP. But when I'm done writing today? It's TOTALLY going back on. So thanks. Thanks for that.<3

  4. SQUEEE on the interview! (I left you a comment over there, btw). Your other books sound amazing, too. (I love Jane Austen and Biblical retelling stories). I must read them after I finish ONE. *__*
    I was obsessed with trying to get as much done on my WIP and the Olympics. :)

    1. Caitlin, I don't even think you understand. If I didn't have to talk to anyone all week and could just listen to that song instead, I'd be SO MEGA HAPPY.

  8. I, TOO, AM OBSESSED WITH DAHLIA! We need to start a fanclub! Where no one will ever be allowed to forget that Liam was thinking of me the first time he kissed Ally.

    Respect the fluff, biznatches.

  11. LOVE that cover of Kiss the Girl! It's one of my favorite Disney songs anyway (seriously), and that cover is so deliciously fun.
