Love YA and/or historical fiction? Take this poll for a chance to win a gift card

I know I have some lovely readers out there who love young adult, historical fiction, and young adult historical fiction novels as much as I do. Riiiight? :)  Help a girl out and tell me more about what type of characters, narration, and timelines you find compelling. Fill me in on the tropes that hook you and the ones that annoy you.  Kindly fill out the entire survey (even the "Why" sections) and you'll be entered to win a $10 Amazon gift card to spend on that YA or historical fiction book at the top of your to-read list. When the survey reaches 50 responses, a winner will be randomly selected. Loading... Thank you! :)

Decorating with CORT: 1 Room, 3 Ways

Or, maybe a novel about one—and his romance with a beautiful heiress in need of protection?

House Progress: Dining Room Decor Plan

Our dining room has definitely caused me the most design obstacles so far. It's a formal dining room—something I haven't really had before. It's a big, spacious room. The radiators and built-in cabinet are gorgeous—and also pose furniture arrangement challenges. Oh, and it's the only place we can fit and plug in our must-have keezer—fresh homebrewed beer on tap is such a luxury!
