J. E. H U N T E R

A writer of young adult fiction specializing in self-publishing, creativity, and writing.

Young Adult Book Review: Prodigy by Marie Lu Prodigy is the second book in the Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu. This book has a fairly high rating on Goodreads, and I have some friends that just love this series. I think the books are okay, but I don’t seem to find them as engaging as …

Today is the last day of the year! That means it’s time to take a look at how I’ve done over the past year, and to look at my plans for next year. I set my Goodreads goal to 60 books for 2017, and reached that goal last week. I’m currently sitting sitting at 62 …
