Blogging life news/updates:
How’s the week been? Not the greatest. I wanted to read a lot more than I did, but I’m kind of feeling a lack of motivation these days, despite having a crap-ton of titles to choose from. Not exactly in a slump, but close to…
My Camp NaNoWriMo progress has kind of stalled, too. I know exactly where I want to go with my story, but I’m not feeling inspired to actually write it down. I’m still two days ahead of the target daily word count, so that’s good, but I’m not feeling motivated to write, either…
And then, on Thursday night, I had a terrible case of food poisoning, and so I couldn’t go to work or classes on Friday and Saturday. I’m feeling so much better now, but I basically stayed in bed and mindlessly watched YouTube videos while I was sick (i.e. marathoned Vlogbrothers). So I didn’t get a huge amount of reading done. Sigh.
Let’s hope this next week is more productive.
What I read/reviewed:
- Dancers Among Us by Jordan Matter. 5 stars!
- The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey. 5 stars!
- The Decaying Empire by Laura Thalassa. 5 stars! (Read in March 2015.)
- Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. Review to come! 4 stars.
- Dear Hank Williams by Kimberly Willis Holt. Review to come! 3 stars.
- Fairest by Marissa Meyer. I’m back in the Lunar Chronicles universe! A retelling! A villain’s POV! Sci-fi! Heartache! I can tell I’m really going to enjoy this.
- A Love Like Blood by Marcus Sedgwick. Finally reading this! So far, so good. Very intriguing with the vampire concept; I’m not very far in and I’m hooked. I’m also loving Marcus Sedgwick’s writing and the dark, creepy tone of the book.
