My introduction: Hi, I’m Colleen (aka CM McCoy) of North Of Normal Book Reviews:
- I am . . . an author, blogger, Irish Dancer, beer & whiskey drinker, retired Air Force officer, chemical engineer, helicopter pilot, mom, space wife, shower singer (loud), and goofball who trips over nothing on a daily (sometimes hourly) basis. Nice to meet you!
- Currently . . . I’m enjoying the Alaska sunshine and listening to my 90-lb Boerboel puppy snore like a fat old man
- I love . . . Alaska, love stories, my critique partners, Penguins hockey, Steelers football, Irish music, sore muscles, bloody toes, and books. Lots and lots of books.
- My favorite . . . sounds are the 4am Alaska songbirds
- My least favorite . . . expression is the dangling “so…..” Finish your damn thought, because if you leave me to make your conclusion for you, it’ll involve snarling Yetis or vomiting ghosts.
- My current read . . . is THE DEAD LIST by Jennifer Armentrout, which has some great moments.
- My summer plans . . . include finishing my YA thriller, camping at the Arctic Circle, filling the freezer with red salmon, and reading 100 books.
- My buddy . . . just sent me a SPOT message to let me know he landed safely on a sandbar at our camp on the Yentna River (he flew the Cub)
- My blog/channel/social media . . . @eerie_o on Twitter and Instagram
- The best . . .YA books I’ve read this year are:
OF BEAST AND BEAUTY by Stacey Jay
SOME BOYS by Patty Blount
ROYAL BASTARDS by Andrew Shvarts
SHIVER by Maggie Stiefvater (I read this every year <3)
