The Gilmore Girls

I grew up watching The Gilmore Girls. It's the series that has stayed in my heart all these years. The fact that people are still hoping for a possible movie seven years after the series ended is a testament to the power of the show.

Because of my love for Lorelai and Rory, every year, at around this time, I treat myself to a marathon. A pilgrimage back to Stars Hollow if you will. I stand with Rory through all her boyfriends (Logan is still my favorite), share Lorelai's heartbreak when Luke "needed more time," and still cry when Rory makes this speech at her Chilton graduation:


I have all sorts of feels for this series...even for the seventh season, which is painful to watch, let me tell you. How one season can ruin the rest is beyond me. What were the writers thinking? Anyway, I won't gripe. That's been done, especially in this lovely blog post about the ending. And when I think about it, I agree that Taylor may have a huge penis.

I really do wish Amy Sherman-Palladino considers redoing the ending. The CW or was it The WB at the time really dropped the ball by letting her go. There's this really awesome article you should read that has a theory about Rory and Jess.

If you look at it, of all of Rory's boyfriends in the show, Jess had the most pivotal role. When she dropped out of Yale, who convinced her to come back? Jess. This is how I see the movie. It would be Rory's wedding. She's a famous journalist now. The whole movie is about the "day of" where she's preparing to walk down the aisle with lots of flashbacks that gives us a glimpse into what's been happening with everyone in our beloved Stars Hollow. Luke and Lorelai will definitely be married and will have a kid because we need Sid/Nancy slash Leopold/Lobe. Then we'll see that Lorelai's relationship with her parents is so much better. Sookie St. James will earn a Michelin Star (or several).

Anyway, you get what I mean...I hope. And throughout the movie we don't know who the groom is until Rory walks down the aisle where we get a shot of Jess, who's become a best selling author--because how could he not?

That's me being sentimental. I love this series so much that it hurts not to see the characters getting the endings they deserve. Here's to hoping a movie will get made soon. For now, it's yearly marathons in September.

Disclaimer: I Like Boys

Interested in reading an M/M YA Romance?

I wrote Preston's and Nathan's story because I love them. I love the struggle between staying best friends and falling in love. Because of the FEELS, I wanted to share their story with all of you. So, I posted Disclaimer: I Like Boys on Swoon Reads. By reading and rating you are helping me get the story of these best friends out there.

Here's the blurb that you would see on the site:

Nathan and Preston have been best friends for years.

Nathan came out in grade school.

Preston confessed his feelings for Nathan in their junior year.

Nathan is afraid that if they upgrade their relationship status that things won’t work out. That if they broke up he would lose not only a boyfriend but a best friend too.

Preston proposes they try a relationship for a month. That he would do everything to convince Nathan they were meant for each other.

Just as Nathan begins to give in to his feelings, a secret Preston’s been keeping from him will blow up both their worlds.

Can their friendship survive after the dust settles if love is not enough?

It's a Party!





It’s a BOOK Birthday!
The birth of a debut book is often a long labor of love, and Margo Kelly’s Who R U Really? is no exception. Margo finished the first draft of the manuscript in 2010! More than four years later, more than four title changes, and way-more-than four revisions … it has finally arrived! WAHOO!

*.-*.-**throws confetti**.-*.-*



Who R U Really?
When Thea discovers a new role-playing game online, she breaks her parents’ rules to play. And in the world of the game, Thea falls for an older boy named Kit whose smarts and savvy can’t defeat his near-suicidal despair. Soon, he’s texting her, asking her to meet him, and talking in vague ways about how they can be together forever. As much as she suspects that this is wrong, Thea is powerless to resist Kit’s allure, and hurtles toward the very fate her parents feared most. Who R U Really? will excite you and scare you, as Thea’s life spins out of control.

“Kelly has painted a realistic picture of how a smart girl can get caught up in something dangerous online. … Guaranteed to give readers goosebumps.” -- School Library Journal.  (http://www.bookverdict.com)

“Thea’s mistakes, while frustrating to encounter, are frighteningly plausible, and the relationships among characters are well–fleshed out, especially between mother and daughter. Kelly’s first novel is a suspenseful page-turner.” -- Kirkus Reviews (www.kirkusreviews.com)

Who R U Really? will be published in hardcover and e-book versions by Merit Press (F+W Media) on September 18, 2014.
