I love nothing better than feeling the sense of dread when I read—that creepy, crawly feeling that something is just not right. And then when you least expect it—BOOM, plot twist! Here are 12 books with mouth-watering plot twists. Some are thrillers, so their twists are expected (yet still oh so satisfying) and the others are from a wide range of genres, which make their twists even more delicious!

Books and wine, two things I always judge by the outside. Not always effective, but always fun. I'm trying to break my habit of judging books by their covers (seriously, I am!), but I will aways, always, always be a sucker for a beautifully designed book cover. Here are 13 books that are so gorgeous you won't be able to look away!

I LOVE audiobooks, but I've learned the hard way that they're not all created equal! Some genres just translate better to audiobooks than others. And rom-coms? They're PERFECT as audiobooks. They're lighthearted, fun, and the narrators are some of the best. Rom-com audiobooks are awesome for all listening occasions—chores, commutes, work outs, painting your toe nails, you name it! Here are 14 delightful Rom-Com audiobooks you'll absolutely adore!

Doesn't it feel so good to finish reading a book? I love long and winding stories, but I also really, really like short and quick reads. I find they're always a great option for palate cleanser books. It's especially gratifying to read through an entire book on a lazy day when you can spend your whole day just reading. Here are 11 really great books you can read in one (or maybe two) sittings.

What sets a great writer apart from a good one? It comes down to how well they can tell a story. And that story, whether it’s a real-life account or a tale of a far-off fantasy world, is why people read. Stories at part magic, but also part technique. Storytelling tools include point of view, […]

Our brains see whatever we tell them to see. The term for this is called Confirmation bias and it’s the reason you’re a terrible writer. Simply put—if you think you’re a terrible writer, it’s because you’re telling yourself you are. True to form, your brain is then going and finding the evidence to support your claims.

Why You’re a Terrible Writer Take just a minute to watch this video from YouTube. This is an awareness test. Count how many passes the team in white makes. How shocking is that?? It’s incredible what we miss when we aren’t looking for it. How can it be that we don’t notice such obvious things […]
