Blogger GirlBlogger Girl by Meredith Schorr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kim Strong is a girl that I think I'd be friends with. She reminded me a LOT of myself. Working to get by, despite being bored to tears at my job, and kind of drifting along, not allowing anything to change. She also can hold a grudge, much like me, and cherishes her closest friends above all else, again like me. Seriously. This book was like reading a what if I'd actually moved to New York after college like I had planned.
This was a really fun story. I enjoyed the dialogue, the misadventures, and the complete change that Kim went through. I feel that's the mark of a good story: How the main character changes over the course of the entire story. How they grow, how their opinions change when given new information.
Kim's high school nemesis wrote a book, and it was a book that everyone had so far adored. Kim, a well-known chick lit blogger is reluctant to read it, as she had so many bad memories of this Queen Bee from high school. We've all been there, I'm sure. We always hope our high school enemies end up penniless in the street (Just me? Moving on...). With the push of her new boyfriend, Nicholas, and the pestering of her sister, Erin (who is obsessed with this person), she reads the book and much to her chagrin, she likes it.
This is where it really started to hit home. This is where it really started to click with me, and that's what I love about certain books: When I find the main character completely similar to where I am in life, and I learn something new about myself, as well. Bravo.
I really enjoyed this book. If I like I book, it doesn't take me long to read it. This one took me a few days (which is normal for me. I work a LOT), but I found myself picking it up every chance I got. That's definitely the mark of a good book in my opinion.
I did receive this book as an ARC, but the opinions are completely my own.

  1. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing Blogger Girl. I'm thrilled that it resonated with you :) (Hopefully your high school "mean girl" is not quite as successful as Hannah Marshak!)

    1. She's not. I don't even know what happened to her, and that's just as it should be. :-)

I'm Moving!

Talk about a long hiatus!

So, things have been happening, or rather, things have been stalling, and I've decided that I need to actually do things in order to achieve what I want to in life. Where I want my writing to go, and what I want to dedicate my blog to.

When I first started MJA I had no idea what I wanted in a blog. I just wanted to write, and I hoped that the readers would follow me. And it took awhile, but you have! But I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog because I was trying to turn it into something that it just couldn't be.

I'm an author, first and foremost, and upon meeting other writers, I've learned so much and want to pass on that education to others, like they've passed on to me.

That said, The Modern Jane Austen isn't going to be getting updates anymore. This is a blog where I wrote about my life, some reviews here and there, and just a few tidbits about my writing journey. But it was mostly a confused mess, IMO, and I've …

September Musings on Writing

Another year has gone by.



I'm 20 days out from my 31st birthday.


I'm 24 days out from embarking on my first cruise to Canada.


I'm thismuch closer to finishing a second manuscript this year.

So, it's shaping up to be a pretty exciting month for me. I'd REALLY like to finish both manuscripts so that I can get to working on their second drafts before NaNoWriMo kicks off in November.

Yes. I'm using my thirties as I should've used my twenties: As someone who wants to write books for a living. Novel concept right?

But honestly. Six years ago when I started at my current job, I was under the illusion that what happened to Amanda Hocking would happen to me. Haha! I was so cute and naive when I was 25.

The last year or so, I've tried really hard to understand what it means to be an independent or self-published author. How you have to put your best work out there, not just the crappy first draft that you were just relieved to finish. That editors want to help yo…

Free Money! 3 Tips For Giving Plasma

Today, I wanted to talk to you about giving Plasma. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood that carries your blood cells all around your body. When you give plasma, they use it to make medication, and it also helps patients who have experienced trauma, have bleeding disorders, and more. I started giving Plasma back in 2007 when gas prices were upwards of $4 a gallon in Missouri, where I was living and needed all the extra money I could get. At the time, I got about $40/donation, but now I give through OctaPharma here in CB, with different pricing (It varies based on your weight).

It hasn't always been easy, though. A few years ago, I was unable to keep giving, and I couldn't figure out why. When I went back to try to raise money for an upcoming vacation the first few times I tried, my protein levels were either too low or at the bare minimum, so I thought I'd share some tips that help.

1. Three hours before you go, start eating something with protein.  I usually give in t…
