Author Guest: Kody Keplinger [Shut Out Music]

Hey guys! Today's tour stop is a special music post from Kody Keplinger. She's kindly provided the music playlist to Shut Out. With Lissa's character being a fan of pop music, Kody has included quite a few fun and upbeat songs. I was reading this book while listening to the playlist. I have to say, it really does make the book "pop" and I could relate some of the scenes to the songs.

Review: Hatter

Hatter by Daniel Coleman
Published: June 10, 2011
Teen Book Scene [Tour]
There's nothing wrong with a touch of madness. - Cheshire Cat

In a kingdom that doesn't need saving, a young man ignorant of social norms is the unlikeliest of heroes. And despite his extreme dislike of confrontation, Hatta knows his destiny is to mend a rift that doesn't exist.

On the other end of the spectrum is Chism, a young Elite soldier who thrives on conflict. How will this rash, obsessive soldier aid the child-like Hatta in his journey?

Throw in the Cheshire Cat, Queen of Hearts and other familiar characters as they emerge to fill their eminent roles in the tangled ascent into madness of literature's most lovable lunatic.

Build A Tasty Weight Watchers Meal

imageStepping away from all things books, for just a moment. As many of you know, I joined Weight Watchers on August 2, 2011 and have already lost 10 pounds. Changing my diet has been a challenge, but I’ve learned that with Weight Watchers I’m allowed to eat the things I love, just in better portions. I’ve found a way to well balance my foods with healthier brands, portions, and by adding fruits and vegetables.

Most of my friends know that I’m on this diet, so they’ve been asking me to post pictures of my meals. Yesterday, I posted a picture of a toasted ham & cheese sandwich that I’d made, and it seems to be a big hit. I’ve heard that someone wants to recreate this recipe, so I wanted to make sure that all of the ingredients were correct. Here I am to step-by-step show you guys how to build this tasty, yet healthier sandwich.
