The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum


You’ve never been kissed before. You have a boyfriend, although he wants to wait for the “perfect” time. Which is apparently your birthday. Also his. Then an Italian (and very hot) exchange student comes into the picture when he wants to join the school play(which you are the assistant director of). Remember how you’ve never been kissed? Not after the day the exchange student arrived. Oh, but he didn’t kiss you. Your teacher did. On purpose. Out of nowhere. In front of (almost) everyone. Yup.

Today- From what I remember (which is honestly not very much), this book is very… emotionish and mysterical. Also, the first in a trilogy.

Grade: Bimage

Somehow difficulties are easier to endure when you know your dream is waiting for you at the end.

So, guess who I got to meet and listen to a workshop by and get to sign my copy of her book today?

That’s right mother fuckers, Lisa Mangum!

Author of the Hourglass Door trilogy and After Hello, Lisa Mangum has been a writing hero of mine ever since I first read her books. She taught me the importance of background characters and the way to organize your ideas. 

Her advice today- “Everyone has a story that only they can tell. Don’t wait for someone else to come along and write your story for you, because then it’s never going to get written!”

So jealous!
