What's your favorite summer memory?

I used to go to camp every summer and then when I got older, I became a camp counselor at the same camp. I loved that place so much! 15 years later and I still have dreams about being back there at least once a month.

Ice cream or popsicle? What's your favorite flavor?

So this is weird. The Rite-Aids in California used to all be Thrifty Drug Stores and Thrifty used to make their own ice cream. When Rite-Aid took them over, they kept all ice cream counters in all the CA stores. They have this flavor that has been my favorite since I was a kid. It’s called Chocolate Malted Crunch. Basically it’s chocolate chocolate chip with tiny malt balls in it. It’s TO DIE FOR! And really the only ice cream I’ll eat.

What will you be reading this summer? 

I have a TON of books on my TBR list. Right now I’m reading this really wonderful historical fiction novel called The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty and after that I really want to read FOREVER, the last book in Maggie Stiefvater’s series. It’s been on my shelf for far too long and I HAVE to know how this series ends!

About The Book:
Being America’s favorite heiress is a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
Lexington Larrabee has never to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they’re not supposed to crash brand new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Blvd either.
Which is why, on Lexi’s eighteenth birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it’s dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.
In a hilarious “comedy of heiress” about family, forgiveness, good intentions, and best of all, second chances, Lexi learns that love can be unconditional, money can be immaterial, and, regardless of age, everyone needs a little saving. And although she might have 52 reasons to hate her father, she only needs one reason to love him.
