Bring on the Bad Boys || A Conversation

It is indisputable that there is a certain allure to bad boys—hell this point was brought up on the first episode of Jojo’s Bachelorette season. What is it about the down and dirty (and I mean dirty talking, motorcycle driving, boys you don’t being home to your mama) men that have us squirming in our seats? Besides that, what is the difference between the ‘bad boys’ and the Bad Boys?

(did you notice how I capitalized the second offender?)

Book Endings that Linda Grimes {All Fixed Up} Would Change if She Could

We've all been there. The book was going great {amazing, spellbinding, awesome, hellstotheyesplease, ect.} but the ending totally killed the vibe. I know I'm guilty of knocking a whole star off the book rating if the ending angered me. I'm not saying I need a happily ever after all the time (I like a good old tragedy as much as the next girl) but I do like what I like.

I mean, don't we all? It's why we like different book. Uniformity is boring. Let's embrace that. But if we could change the ending...given half the chance...well, that's what Linda Grimes, author of All Fixed Up, is going to explore this lovely Friday Morning.

Twelve years ago, I ran to stay alive. 

Port Royal, South Carolina, was my home. I was born there. I fell in love there. And I nearly died there. I never thought I’d go back. Now, after so many years, I have to return to bury the man who made my life a living hell. Some nights, I used to cry myself to sleep, praying my father would die. Other nights were different. Other nights, there was him.
