Hi All, I hope everyone has made it through July safely. Let me tell you, it’s been a wild month! Now that events have been set in motion, I’ll tell you a little bit about the last couple months to give you some context as to why I need to take a break in July. So Covid hit as I was finishing up my MA in Boston. I moved home about a week before quarantine (March). Thankfully I made it home in time! I finished my degree from home (May), and we were still in quarantine. As many of you…

Welcome back everyone! We’re halfway through National Get Caught Reading Month. This is a month where bookworms literally strive to get caught reading in places like a bookstore, on the subway, in a cafe, or in line for coffee. Like many of you, I would love to celebrate this month because it would mean our world is back to normal; It would mean we could be out and about trying to get caught reading without a thought of Covid-19 or social distancing. Unfortunately, neither of those things seems to be going away anytime soon, so we’ll have to adjust how…

Hello all! Just a quick announcement that there will not be a post this week. I’m taking a celebratory week off due to the fact that I earned my Master’s of Arts in Writing and Publishing from Emerson College this week. Don’t worry though because we’ll be back next week to talk about some highly anticipated books coming out soon! Have a wonderful week everyone! Be safe! And, as always, happy reading! Marissa

Welcome back, Wilde About Books community! We’re almost to the end of National Poetry Month! Has anyone been working on any big projects? I’m in my last week of graduate school, so my big project is almost over! Today I wanted to talk about putting your writing into the world, so I thought I’d start by sharing my experience and see where we go from there.  If I’m being honest, I’ll admit that I’ve put little of myself, my writing, into the world. I’ve submitted to a few university competitions and a few small publications, but nothing more than that.…

Happy Wednesday! We’re officially halfway through National Poetry Month! I hope you’ve had a month full of reading and writing. Today, I’m changing things up a little bit, and I’ll tell you why. Today is my mom’s birthday. As I’ve mentioned before in previous posts, my mom is the one who inspired my love of reading and writing. (If you missed “Finding the Magic in Reading and Writing” post, go back and read that one first.) My mom has always been my person. The one who I can always rely on to be my biggest champion and my closest friend.…

Welcome back, folks! I hope you’re staying healthy and entertained! We’re a little over a week into National Poetry Month, and I hope you’ve had a chance to read some poetry or write your own. We’re also coming up on Drop Everything and Read Day on April 12! As a community of bookworms, let’s seize the day on April 12 and dive head first into a lovely place I like to call Bookland.  Bookland is my favorite place. It’s that sacred space between the written word and the imagination. It’s that place you go to when you’re supposed to be…
