May TBR Tuesday

With my final semester of college winding down, life has gotten a bit crazy so I’m going to try and keep the TBR super short this week. I also have been very much a mood reader lately, and am struggling to keep to prescribed reading lists.

Books I’ll definitely be reading this month:

  1. A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas – if you have been following the blog, you know that I’m a Maas fan and will definitely be finishing this soon
  2. Brightly Burning by Alexa Donne – I’m also a massive Jane Eyre fan, and love stories set in space; that makes this sci-fi retelling the perfect mix (you can read more about it on an old Waiting on Wednesday post HERE)
  3. Emperor Mage by Tamora Pierce – I loved the first two books in this series (click the titles to see reviews for Wild Magic and Wolf-Speaker) and am trying to work through it between all the other books I’m reading!

Classic of the month:

I’m currently torn between whether to read The Odyssey by Homer (which I wanted to read before Circe by Madeline Miller) or Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (HBO is releasing a new adaptation of this classic this month!). This pick will definitely depend on what mood I’m in when starting it.

Up next on my TBR:

  1. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa – I’ve been in the mood for some faerie stories lately, and have been trying to get through this forever. I’ll get to it eventually!
  2. Mistborn or The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Sanderson is going to BookCon next month (which I am also attending) and I really wanted to read some of his books before attending! I know that he writes the kind of stories I will absolutely love, I just haven’t been able to dive into them.
  3. Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman – another series that I know that I’ll love but just haven’t had the time for it!

What are you planning on reading this month?

The 90’s Kid Book Tag

THE RULES

  1. Please, please, please steal this tag and spread it around!  I only ask that you link it back to The Literary Phoenix so that I can see everyone’s answers!
  2. Freeze tag was all the rage in the 90s.  Tag someone (or many) you think would have fun with this!
  3. Have fun!

POKEMON

A GBA game and trading card game where you battled pocket monsters and strived to catch them all.  Back in the day, there were only 150 Pokemon.

The author you need every book from.

 

Sarah J. Maas is my all-time favorite author, and I absolutely NEED everything that she writes. (As you can see from the pics above, my obsession has led to some marvelous adventures. You can read about Bookcon and the ACoWaR tour.) For those not in the know, she actually wrote the BEGINNING of a serial story on tumblr (The Starkillers Cycle) with Susan Dennard and the fact it will probably be forever unfinished (the underground fandom thinks they had a falling out) is heartbreaking.


AIM

AOL Instant Messaging – how 90s kids communicated with their friends after school before everyone had a cell phone.

Book that connected you with your best friend.

The reason my sorority Big Sister and I met was actually because I put Sarah J. Maas on my introduction and interests slide when I was joining. One of our “sister dates” was an adventure to a local Maas signing! The rest is history, and now we have expanded our circle of obsession to others in our Harry Potter Family.


FURBY

Creepy needy robots you could teach to talk and were probably demon possessed.  Somehow these made a comeback?

Book that seemed like a good idea but was actually a monster.

30969741

An unpopular opinion – I didn’t really enjoy the book An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson. The cover is absolutely stunning by one of my favorite fan artists, Charlie Bowater, and because of the hype I decided to pick it up. It really just wasn’t for my over-analytical mind with the writing seeming for much younger audience and the characters having some holes I couldn’t ignore.

 


N’SYNC

90s quintessential boy band. You may have heard of Justin Timberlake?

A book you hated to say Bye, Bye, Bye to.31453592

The Dark Calling by Kresley Cole is a book that I waited for-freaking-ever for. After the major cliffhanger in Arcana Rising, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book, and there is still so much unresolved things that need to happen before the end of the series! I’m in denial that the next book will be the last in The Arcana Chronicles, which is one of my guiltiest of guilty pleasures.


SLIMED!

Getting green slime thrown on you, courtesy of the show Figure it Out.  Also apparently still a thing at the Kid’s Choice Awards?

22328546A book everyone loved but you hated.

The Red Queen series is one that I absolutely did not like. When I say I didn’t like the series, I mean I forced myself to read the first book because everyone seemed to love it, and then figured there MUST be something in the sequel to redeem it (which I did not find). I ended up DNFing Glass Sword and have no desire to return to the world. It seemed like a really tired YA trope that wasn’t done in a new or compelling way. Mare was whiny, the “good” prince was trash, and the only interesting thing was the superpowers, but I digress.


OREGON TRAIL

90s computer game you could usually play at school, which was great.  It taught us people used to die a lot of gruesome, messy deaths.

A book that made you wish you died of dysentery.

Madame Bovary by Gustav Flaubert is a book that I had to read for English class in high school, and one that I hope I never have to pick up or look at for extended periods of time again.


MIXTAPE/CD

Back before everyone had music on their phones (remember, we didn’t have cell phones!) folks would rip their CDs and make mixes for each other.

3 books you recommend to anyone, anywhere, no matter what.

 

Ready Player One, Red Rising, and The Darkest Minds. All three of these books have such amazing and powerful stories that I believe people of all ages and background would love and enjoy.


DIAL-UP INTERNET

You know how it’s annoying when you aren’t on LTE?  IMAGING WAITING 10 MINUTES FOR INTERNET TO START AND ANOTHER 20 MINUTES FOR GOOGLE TO LOAD!

A book that took FOR FREAKING EVER to read.10987

I ended up picking up and putting down Voyager by Diana Gabaldon for over a year before I finally buckled down and forced myself to finish it. The same thing is happening now with it’s sequel Drums of Autumn, but hopefully I’ll be able to finish it soon.


KEENAN THOMPSON

He’s that guy who’s been on SNL forever.  Also Mighty Ducks.  Good Burger.  Keenan and Kel.  All That.  Everything.

That book that you see referenced everywhere and is in everything, but that’s okay because it’s awesome.3

Harry Potter references seem to have found their way into everything YA, and even some adult, but I’m not complaining. Harry will always have be The Boy Who Lives On In My Heart.


THUMBS UP, SEVEN UP

A game where most the class closed their eyes and seven people tapped someone’s thumb and you had to guess who did it without peeking.

Book where you peeked just REAL quick at the ending because you don’t like 18966806guessing games.

Morning Star (Red Rising #3) by Pierce Brown. No spoilers but something VERY STRESSFUL happens towards the end of this book, and I *may* have peeked to see how the situation would resolve itself (I don’t trust this man after what happened in Golden Son.)


DUNKAROOS

These were basically just Teddy Grahams dipped in frosting, which is still a wonderful snack idea.

Your ideal bookish snack.

I don’t enjoy eating while reading, because I’m always worried that I’ll get food stuff on my page. When I do eat, I’ll normally have cookies with chocolate milk or tea of some kind (iced or hot).


SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK

Collections of short stories that would scare any sensible kid!  Plus, there were illustrations…

A book that kept you up all night.26795341

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli had me up until 2AM as I finished it in one sitting. This book had everything I love in a contemporary: a cute romance, a story about finding yourself, and a dash of mystery (with some well done drama mixed in). I can’t wait to see the movie adaptation coming out at the end of this month!


BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY

Basically the coolest thing you got to do in science class was watch Bill Nye.  He has a Netflix show again!

A book that taught you something new.

21532133I’m not that big into non-fiction books (which is a fact that I am working to remedy!) but I have always been a fan of historical fiction. However it sounds, I learned more about the Scottish uprising and Bonnie Prince Charlie by reading the Outlander series than I ever did in school. While I’m not saying its 100% historically accurate, Diana Gabaldon definitely did her research and I love how many historical aspects she mixes into her books.


That was a lot of fun and nostalgia. Feel free to steal this tag and spread it around if you’re a fellow 90s kid, or you just love book tags too!

Mid Year Summary

I can’t believe we are already halfway through 2017! It feels like New Years was just last week! Here’s a summary of my favorites throughout the first half of this year.

10987Favorite Book

Voyager by Diana Gabaldon is one of the favorite books that I’ve finished this year. All the adventure and travel undertaken by two of my favorite characters, Claire and Jamie, boosted this to number one (along with the fact that other books that would clench this spot fit other prompts in the list). This is definitely my favorite installment in the Outlander series so far. I’m currently working my way through Drums of Autumn so we’ll see if this spot holds ;).

22055262Favorite New-to-me Series

I’m absolutely loving the A Darker Shade of Magic Series by V. E. Schwab. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books (and can’t believe it took me so long to start them in the first place). You can read some of my thoughts on this book HERE.

440px-the_covers_of_the_six_vampire_academy_books

Series I Blew Through

Earlier this year, I devoured the entire Vampire Academy series. I was nervous to start them because I had my “vampire phase” in middle school, but actually ended up enjoying them quite a lot. You can check out my full review HERE.

17199504New Book Boyfriend

Another series I love is The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. I read a quarter of the first book about a year ago then put it down because I got distracted by all the other reads. This year, I picked it back up again and read the entire book in a day! Needless to say, Warden is now one of my many book boyfriends. I’m afraid to finish the other two books that are out because there are still four more to go in the series (and it’s been taking two years between each release!). You can check out my full review HERE. An honorable mention goes to Kell from A Darker Shade of Magic.

31451174Favorite Series To Return To

Definitely A Court of Thorns and Roses series. I loved the newest installment, A Court of Wings and Ruin. The only reason it didn’t top my list for the year was I had a few twinges of misgiving about the ending (which you can read about HERE. If you love the series as much as I do, you can check out my summary of Maas’ answers during Q&A at one of her tour stops HERE.).

Favorite New Video Game Releasegiphy2

This one caters to my more nerdy side, and for this one I’m also going to cheat. There’s a tie between Horizon: Zero Dawn and Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia. Both games are so different and I play them in different settings. Horizon is a game I turn to when I want some action, fighting robot dinosaurs as an awesome cave woman. Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia is an awesome continuation/remake of my favorite series, that has some added elements like some dungeon roaming that I really enjoy. Needless to say, I’ve sunk many hours into both of these games.

Book(s) I’m Excited About3145085231453592

I’m super excited for the Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas release in September. Throne of Glass is my all-time favorite YA Fantasy series, and I can’t wait to return to it (and get the story about what Chaol is doing during Empire of Storms!). I also can’t wait for Dark Calling by Kresley Cole, the new book in the Arcana Chronicles series, although it doesn’t have a release date other than this year (it was pushed back from a spring release). There are tons of other books to look forward to this year, like Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff, Vanguard by Ann Aguirre, and Little Monsters by Kara Thomas.

Thanks for reading, and keep checking back for new updates (a summer sale may be coming soon for my Etsy shop!)

Bookcon 2017!

I had such a wonderful day at my first ever Bookcon! Even though I was only able to go for one day, the experience that I had was amazing and I was able to meet some of my favorite authors! My friends Maggie and Jess and I went cosplayed as the Archeron sisters from the A Court of Thorns and Roses Series by Sarah J. Maas. We were all lucky enough to have scored tickets to her signing early in the morning! It was pretty rushed because the line had to be finished before her DC Heroes panel at 11, but it was still amazing to see her again and show her our cosplay!

There were photo-booths all around the show floor that were super fun. The Shadowhunter one was my favorite because of the fun rune props! I was also thrilled to have met Cassandra Clare!

I still can’t believe I was able to see some of my favorite authors, Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas, and Leigh Bardugo. My wonderful friends got me signed copies of Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, Windwitch by Susan Dennard and Vicious by V. E. Schwab from day one which I unfortunately couldn’t attend. I spent most of my day focused on meeting people rather than attacking booths for ARCs. Below is a pic of the haul of signed books/swag I managed to snag.

IMG_8112

Swag isn’t everything though; meeting, and even just seeing some of my favorite authors was what truly made the day wonderful. The experience of Bookcon was once in a lifetime, and I’m so glad to have been able to go for even one day. I even made the official Bookcon instagram page!

Sorry for the delay in the post! I’ve had a busy schedule the past few weeks! Thanks for reading!

Coming soon to…BOOKCON!

With the end of Junior year (I still can’t believe I’m a Senior D:) my focus has now shifted to the AMAZING things that I have planned for the next month! In two weeks I’ll be shipping up to Boston for Maggie’s (@ Massachusetts Novel) graduation party. The week after that I’ll be going to Firefly Music Festival (and indulging in my Bishop Briggs obsession). But the thing I’m most excited for: for the first time ever, in just 7 days, I’ll be headed to BOOKCON!!!!!!!

giphy1

Bookcon has been a dream of mine ever since I first learned of it’s existence. I’m so blessed to be gifted with awesome friends who will be attending with me (love you Maggie and Jess) and who are fellow super fans that will cosplay! That’s right, we will be showing up on the show floor Sunday as none other than The Archeron Sisters from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. (Check back later this week to see a brief overview of my costume (which will hopefully turn out alright).)

I’m unfortunately only able to go on Sunday, so I’ll be missing some of my favorite authors–Laini Taylor, Susan Dennard and Rainbow Rowell. Hopefully my friends will be able to get some books signed for me!!! I was also super lucky in being able to snag autograph line tickets for both Sarah J. Maas and Cassandra Clare! Bookcon did something different this year and made ticketing online to try and stop people from lining up at the door at 5AM. I’m super glad they implemented this, because I won’t be getting into the city until 8AM on Sunday and wouldn’t have been able to get the signings I wanted. This way, even those coming from out of town are able to get into signings! The big authors did sell out of tickets super fast though, with Maas and Clare running out probably within the first two minutes.

I never in my wildest dreams EVER thought I would be able to meet Cassandra Clare. Ever since I started reading The Mortal Instruments in middle school, Clare has been equated with greats like Rowling in my mind. Far away dreams of in-person fangirling that will likely never come to fruition. I’m still in shock that I will be seeing her in under a week, and having her sign one of my books!!!!!!!

giphy

(Sidenote: The only reason Maas isn’t up there in the “far away dreams” category is because I was lucky enough to become obsessed early on, before there was enough people to cap signings. If you’d like to see a summary from Maas’ Q&A in Baltimore during her latest signing tour #ACOTOUR, click HERE)

I’ll keep you guys posted, both on my Elain Archeron outfit and my experiences at Bookcon. A summary post of my experiences should be up the day after. Check my twitter out on Sunday June 4 for an up-to-date feed!

Are any of you guys going to Bookcon? If you’ve gone in the past, do you have any advice?

Thanks for reading!

Meeting Sarah J. Maas! (Again)

Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to see Sarah J. Maas again at a book signing in Baltimore with Maggie from Massachusetts Novel. As always, she was a lovely and amazing human being, and I am so lucky to have met her four times now!

Some of my favorites from the Q&A session that occurred before the signing and was moderated by Stephanie Brown from No B.S. Book Reviews I summarized below. Because of the fact I was taking hand notes (and no videos were allowed) most are summaries of answers. Any direct quotes I’ve written in bold and clearly marked.


Q: What court are you in?

Sarah: The Night Court. I hate the sun, and burn very easily. I also couldn’t be in the summer court because I sweat very easily.

Q: What Harry Potter house are you in?

Sarah: Christine Riccio placed me in a house using Pottermore last year during a signing. (See the video HERE around 15:03). I always believed I was a Gryffindor, but I’m actually a Hufflepuff!  I was very distraught until I found out that the Hufflepuff common room is right next to the kitchen. Just think of all the stairs the Gryffindor’s have to climb to get a midnight snack.

Q: What would the inner circles Hogwarts Houses be?

Sarah: Cassian would definitely be Gryffindor. Azriel would be Ravenclaw. Sweet Elain would be a Hufflepuff. Nesta would be Slytherin. Amren would be Ravenclaw or Slytherin, although I feel she fits more in the role of the headmaster. Mor would be Gryffindor. Rhys would be a Ravenclaw. Feyre would be a Hufflepuff/Slytherin (like a snake with a pom-pom tail).

Q: Who is the unsung hero of the ACOTAR series?

Sarah: The Suriel.

Q: What is your favorite High Lord Power?

Sarah: No spoilers! I don’t know if it’s a power, but one of the High Lords (Helion) has a city of libraries like the city of Alexandria and I would love to browse through them all day. I’m really into Helion, like in a weird way”.

Q: What was your inspiration for Rhys?

Sarah: I read somewhere that people thought my husband was the inspiration. He doesn’t really represent Rhys other than they are both tall and dark haired. Rhys’ bond with Feyre is inspired by the bond I feel with Josh. It’s because of him that I can only really write about true love, because I have it every day. He takes care of me while I’m in the writing cave, feeding me and making sure I shower.

“Find someone who feeds you.” – Sarah J. Maas

Q: Can same-sex couples be mates? 

Sarah: Yes, and you can see some of that in both series. Don’t want to give anything away, but you may see this in ACOWAR when you read it. It’s also present in the Throne of Glass world. I’m super excited to write more about this, and already have a novel in mind about it.

Q: Some this or that: Is Rhys or Fenrys hotter? Would Cassian or Lorcan win in a fight?

Sarah: This might be cheating, but I think Rhys and Fenrys are equally hot. In any case, I would take them both. In a fight, I feel like neither Cassian or Lorcan would win. I think they would take of their shirts, then get drenched by a sudden downpour. After a bit of fighting, they would get tired and go get beers to talk about their women problems. So in the end we all win.

Q: Would Jamie Fraser (Outlander) and Rhys be friends?

Sarah: Definitely. They would get together and talk about their women problems. And then they would get caught outside in the rain. I feel like in my world there is that gloomy Carebear that drives around a rain cloud and just drenches all the hot men. It’s always a wet t-shirt contest in my mind.

Q: Are you more like Aelin or Feyre?

Sarah: I feel like I’m not like either of them because they are so awesome. All women that I write have a kernel of me in them, though. Out of all the characters, I’m most like Fleetfoot because I enjoy eating, sleeping, and being brushed by hot men.

Q: Do you have any advice for young writers?

Sarah: You have to pursue your dreams and work very hard. If you want to be a writer, you have to treat it as a career and not accept failure. Ever since I was 16, I worked like writing was going to be my career. You need to act seriously and take yourself seriously if you want other people to take you seriously as well. Don’t listen to the haters, and those who say you can’t do it.  Writing and editing and can be very hard.

“The hard is what makes it great…you gotta hustle.” – Sarah J. Maas

Q: Can you tell us anything about the upcoming books in the ACOTAR series?

Sarah: There are a lot of fairytales I would like to explore, although many of these ideas are not at all final. I started writing a story for myself during ACOWAR because I wanted to explore new characters and before I knew it I had 250 pages of a new project. I had dinner with my editor and had a few to many drinks, and ended up pitching her three novels and a few novellas in the world. I can say that each standalone will follow a different romantic pairing, both based after and before ACOWAR. There will possibly be a story about a snow queen, and I really like the story of Vasilisa the Beautiful along with Swan Lake. I’m excited because of how much I love romance series following couples in these same storyline.

Q: What’s your favorite Avatar: The Last Airbender Character?

Sarah: Zuko is definitely my favorite. I sobbed during the series finale. I didn’t really like how the romantic pairings ended up without spoiling the series for you guys.

Q: Can you tell us anything about the upcoming Chaol novel?

Sarah: This book will be a parallel to Empire of Storms, not a sequel. Kind of like “Meanwhile, in the Southern Kingdom…..” I sat down to write the Chaol novella (novellas are normally around 20,000 – 35,000 words) and the first day I wrote 100,000. Within five days, I finished and it was 193,000 words. After all the editing, it’s now just as long as Empire of Storms. Aelin and the gang are not in it, it follows the stories of Chaol, Nesryn, and Yrene Towers who was in The Assassin’s Blade briefly. This is not a book that you can really skip before reading Throne of Glass #7. This is a continuation of the same story that has really important plot points, and you won’t know whats happening in #7 if you don’t read it.

“Some major shit happens.” – Sarah J. Maas

Q: Did anything really inspire you for Tower of Dawn?

This is one of my favorite books, and will always have a special place in my heart, along with Heir of Fire. The Mongolian empire was a huge inspiration for the book. I did a ton of research as background. I’m now Genghis Khan’s #1 fangirl. Genghis Khan literally changed the history of the world as we know it. He had Universal education for everyone in his empire and it’s really the Europeans that saw him as a horrible conquerer. I recommend reading Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford (add it to Goodreads HERE).

Q: What authors do you recommend?

J. R. Ward and The Black Dagger Brotherhood series if you’re into Paranormal Romance.

If you really like Faeries, read Karen Marie Moning’s Darkfever series.

If you like YA, check out Roshani Choski and her two books out, The Star-Touched Queen and A Crown of Wishes.

(click on the above titles to go to the Goodreads page!)


Thank you guys for reading my BRIEF summary of the question session. I probably left a few questions out of my notes because I was scribbling madly. Let me know if you have any questions/anything is unclear and I will try and clarify!

You can view my full review of A Court of Wings and Ruin HERE (the first part is spoiler-free!).

If you love the series as much as I do, check out some of my Maas inspired bracelets on my Etsy Shop!

As always, thanks for reading!

A Court of Wings and Ruin Review

31451174A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Published: May 2, 2017

Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses #3

Rating: 5/5

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit—and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well. As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords—and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

Sarah J. Maas’  does it again with A Court of Wings and Ruin. I was wary going into this book, because this is the first Maas “ending” that readers have experienced. Ending is in quotation marks because, without giving anything away, it doesn’t wrap up all the storylines. Yes, the major plot that has been building for the past three books has been completed, but so many other characters have stories that are left hanging.

Don’t get me wrong, this story was an absolutely wonderful conclusion to an amazing trilogy about Feyre Archeron. I absolutely loved this book and all the action, adventure, and friendships that are jam-packed into it. But…all the other characters we have grown to love throughout the series are kind of left out to dry. I can’t wait for the already announced spin-off series (which will hopefully wrap up those loose ends about all those other characters I have become emotionally invested in).

In short, READ THIS SERIES. IT IS LIFE CHANGING, AND I LOVE IT. But don’t expect to be satisfied by this book if you care about any character other than Feyre. Can I ever be satisfied at the end of a Maas book though? I always want more!

 

*****SPOILERS FOR THE BOOK AHEAD*****

 

I was so excited to see more of Elain Archeron, who is one of the characters I find most intriguing. As a hardcore shipper of Elucien, the lack of coupling of the two throughout the book was disappointing, especially because they seem to misunderstand each other so much. I feel like there was a lot of hinting at Lucien getting his own book in the spin-offs however, which I hope and pray for. In my eyes, Lucien is one of the most misunderstood characters in the series, and I’m excited to see more of his journey. The new human queen, Vassa, is also very intriguing and seems like she will play a big role in the stories to come.

My next favorite pairing, Nesta Archeron and Cassian did not get any sort of conclusion either.From watching previous interviews, I know that this couple is also one of Maas’ favorites, so likely a book or two (or three?) will be dedicated to their story. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT FOR ALL THESE DIFFERENT BOOKS?

I was excited to learn more about Mor, but again I feel like another book needs to be written about her story; both a backstory and a some kind of resolution for her future. Going into ACOWAR, I really thought that Moren was going to happen, it seems Amren and Varian are going to get a happy ending. Amren and Varian were cute together throughout, and they both deserve their happy endings.

And while this may sound a little strange, because I didn’t want ANYONE to die, the fact that no major character did really surprised me. *SPOILER FOR CROOKED KINGDOM* Maybe Leigh Bardugo crushed all my hopes and dreams of everyone making it out alive.

While Feyre and Rhys’ stories did wrap up well, Sarah still has a LOT of writing to do for me to be satisfied with the characters in this series. I’m looking forward to seeing Feyrhys as cameos in future stories (and their children?), but EVERYONE ELSE needs their own endings!

Still a 5/5 stars, as I believe all Maas books are. I can’t wait to reread to analyze all the characters more!

In other news…

I will be seeing Sarah J. Maas in Baltimore on Thursday and will hopefully be posting a summary of her Q&A session for this interested, so stay tuned.

Thanks for reading,

emily
