So I’ve been beyond fed up and bored with Facebook lately. It’s beginning to feel a lot like MySpace and the ads are out of control. Similarly with Twitter, although I like Twitter more than Facebook since I can actually … Continue reading Discussion: Connect with Me

The Window by Amelia Brunskill
Release Date: 3 April, 2018
If you love The Third Twin and One of Us Is Lying and binge-watched Thirteen Reasons Why, get ready for a heart-wrenching psychological thriller about a girl who knows her twin sister better than anyone . . . or does she? Taut and atmospheric, The Window will keep you guessing until the end.
Secrets have a way of getting out. . . .
Anna is everything her identical twin is not. Outgoing and athletic, she is the opposite of quiet introvert Jess. The same on the outside, yet so completely different inside–it’s hard to believe the girls are sisters, let alone twins. But they are. And they tell each other everything.
Or so Jess thought.
After Anna falls to her death while sneaking out her bedroom window, Jess’s life begins to unravel. Everyone says it was an accident, but to Jess, that doesn’t add up. Where was Anna going? Who was she meeting? And how long had Anna been lying to her?
Jess is compelled to learn everything she can about the sister she thought she knew. At first it’s a way to stay busy and find closure . . . but Jess soon discovers that her twin kept a lot of secrets. And as she digs deeper, she learns that the answers she’s looking for may be truths that no one wants her to uncover.
Because Anna wasn’t the only one with secrets.
Would I Request It?
In my personal life…
OMG GUYS I GOT MARRIED! Like holy what now? I’m a married lady! Whaaaaaaat? I still can’t believe it.
I also interviewed for an internship with Picador (a division of Macmillan). AND GOT IT! Can we talk about the craziness that was my getting this internship. TorTeen had posted on twitter that they were taking application for interns. I applied. And then I tweeted that I had applied. I heard back THE NEXT DAY.
THE. NEXT. DAY.
The woman I had sent my resume to had sent my resume to Picador and they wanted to know if I’d be willing to do their internship instead.
Yes. Duh. Of course. Experience is experience.
So I interviewed that Tuesday. Keep in mind, I was getting married that Friday.
They called me back within an hour of interviewing me. An hour.
Interviewed Tuesday, offered the position an hour later, married on Friday, started on Monday.
And I’m still just like… Whaaaaaaat???
