I just got back from a week in sunny Sanibel Island, Florida and got some good news while I was away: PRETTY BONES has been chosen for the Spring 2012 edition of Best Books for Kids and Teens, published by the Canadian Children’s Book Center!
Sanibel is beautiful, as you can see from these photos:

I also read some amazing books during my vacation:
1.) Apron Anxiety by Alyssa Shelasky, a fun memoir about the author’s journey toward happiness and cooking.
2.) Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan, a smart, charming book about four best friends and their years at Smith College and beyond.
3.) Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling, hilarious and witty.
4.) Stunning by Sara Shepard, a Pretty Little Liars novel, a series that I love.
Now that I’m home and it’s mid-July, I’m getting excited to start grad school this September — I’ll be starting my Masters of Journalism at Ryerson University. And, of course, I’m also getting excited for fall TV, Mindy Kaling’s new sitcom and 666 Park Avenue most of all.
