Have you guys noticed how often some names you hear everyday are found in books? Like Kelsy or Chelsea, right? Well, this was a huge surprise to me today.
Oh. My. God.
My name is in a book.
For the lead character, too.
It was an incredibly weird, exciting, awkward, and shocking moment for me seeing my name in Madigan Reads review of Trickster's Girl.
To fully understand why this is so shocking to me is easy to explain. One, my mother made up my name when she was twelve years old. Two, everyone as far back as I can remember has butchered my name horrifically growing up.
I can only hope people will start to pronounce my name correctly now and that the book is actually good when I read it. (laughs)
I have to get myself a copy A.S.A.P.
