Happy Friday, guys! Somehow it’s Friday again? Not that I’m complaining, but this week kinda got away from me ( cough no blog posts cough). At least I can catch up with a good ol’ look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer:
Reading: The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper
Finally read it! Feels way more epic than I expected; love the family stuff too.
Writing: “first causality of the quiz bowl road trip—somehow dinosaur-related.”

“At the time, science fiction for and by women was a rarity. There was no one like Meg Murry before Meg Murry, though she left a legacy to be picked up by contemporary young adult heroines like The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen and the Harry Potter series’ Hermione Granger.”
“If you liked something, there was this real sense of solitude with your interest. It was so rare to find someone who shared your interest, and when you did find someone, you clung to that person, even if you weren’t the best match, because it was so rare to find someone.” Rainbow Rowell on how great the internet is for fans of all kinds.
