Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, everybody! Even though it was technically a short week thanks to a snowstorm in the Boston area, I’m really glad to see the weekend. Here’s a little look at what I’ve been reading and writing, in fifteen words or less:

ReadingBright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt
May we all wear sparkly green nail polish more often.

Writing: “Maybe Masha and I couldn’t belong to ourselves. But we could belong to each other.”

Friday Fifteen

Happy Friday, guys! As someone who just spilled an almost full cup of coffee all over herself, I am really feeling the need for the weekend. Let’s start things off with a glimpse into what I’ve been reading and writing, in fifteen words or less.

Reading: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
Loved Mandel’s writing; the Traveling Symphony and airport sections were my favorites.

Writing: “Si id facere non potestispretium…” “Don’t talk your dead languages at me, O’Rourke.”
People love the Latin jokes.

Feel free to a little of what you’ve been reading or writing in the comments. Have a great weekend!

The Friday Fifteen Returns!

Hi everyone! Regular readers may remember my blog feature, the Friday Fifteen, in which I’d post five to fifteen book reviews in fifteen words or fewer. It was a lot of fun to put together these microreviews of books I’d been reading and books I’d read years ago, but eventually it got kind of draining. I took off some time to reassess and now I’m back with a new Friday Fifteen format.

The new Friday Fifteen format:

  1. A book review in fifteen words or fewer (just like the good one days), likely something I’ve been reading.
  2. Fifteen words or fewer from whatever I’ve been working on.

So now, onto the first incarnation of the Friday Fifteen v. 2.0. (Or version 3.0?):

Reading:  Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed
First book written for adults in while that’s touched me. Lived up to the recommendations.

Writing: When I blinked again, she said, “Seriously, how do we ever have a conversation?”
Digging these characters’ banter in my current WIP.

Feel free to share your own microreviews or WIP snippets in the comments. Happy Friday!
