Hot Like This is a collaborative effort between Chris, Chrissie, and Miles, who each took on different characters and played them out round-robin style. It’s the follow-up story to their holiday collaboration All I Want for Christmas.

Something happened recently, and trying to figure out why uploaded images aren’t showing up on my site, but theme images are.

Quote for the Day — Love exists…
Oh, love isn’t there to make us happy. I believe it exists to show us how much we can endure.
Hermann Hesse, Wer lieben kann, ist glücklich. Über die Liebe
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret – one that would just kill to get out.
Quote for the Day — Teaser Tuesdays — The Scorpio Races
In the dark, in the cold, I am listening for a change in the sound of the ocean. The water is rising, quickly and silently; the tide is coming in, and in an hour, this incomplete cave will be full of sea-water higher than my head.
Maggie Stiefvater, The Scorpio Races, page 32
