We’re so excited we had the opportunity to interview USA Today best-selling author Jillian Dodd. As you know we’re obsessed with Dodd’s London Prep series. Team Noah!
1. When did you first realize that you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always loved creating thing—crafts, stories, songs, artwork, interior design, and clothing. I was an avid reader but didn’t decide to write until I had a story that kept invading my dreams. I needed to know the rest of their story, which led me to write my first book, That Boy.
We’re so excited to be posting for the blog tour on release day! If you haven’t bought this YA contemporary yet, do so today! Thank you TBR and Beyond Tours for including us. Check out the rest of the tour schedule here!

Warning: Spoilers if you haven’t read the book series or watched the TV show.
The year is 2010. The two of us sat on a bed with ABC Family turned on, eagerly waiting for the premiere of Pretty Little Liars. We’d seen the show previews for weeks and couldn’t wait to watch this teen thriller. At the time, we hadn’t read the books.
The first book came out in 2006 and the last one released 2014. There are 18 books total, 16 are part of the regular series and two are companions.
The TV show lasted for seven seasons, from 2010-2017. We loved the first few seasons, but as time went on, it got more and more ridiculous. Eventually, we had to read the source material to see the differences.
Cassie Hobbes never thought her ability to read people was that special. Sure, she can look at someone and piece together who they are and what they want. But when the FBI takes an interest in Cassie for their Naturals program, she can’t help wondering what she is capable of doing.
We are so excited to be part of the blog tour for YOU WERE MADE FOR ME by Jenna Guillaume! We’re currently reading it, so check back for a review soon. We’re loving the concept of a girl accidentally creating the perfect teenage boy. It’s gives us major Pixel Perfect vibes from the OG Disney Channel days. Anyone else know which movie we’re talking about?!
