Happy Friday, guys! Between the heat and the excitement of the summer Olympics (oh my lord, those gymnasts!), I am super feeling August right now. While I cling desparately to my iced tea, let’s get the weekend started with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing:
Reading: Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cyborg Cinderella plus galactic political intrigue plus an adorable prince equals a big yes!
Writing: “I think I’ll never have another first time I went sledding, and I’m blindsided by sadness.”
Main character starts having some feels.
Happy Friday, guys! It’s the end of July, which to me means it’s Harry Potter’s birthday weekend. (Once a friend and I got an ice cream cake for July 31, and asked Dairy Queen to write “Happy Birthday Harry” on it in Gryffindor colors. Good times.) Before we head into Harry Potter weekend, here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer:
Reading: Murder on the Ballarat Train by Kerry Greenwood
Loved returning to Phryne’s adventures, and loved the intro of Jane and Ruth.
Writing: “I am the most pleasant mother pheasant plucker who ever plucked a mother pheasant.”
Got a chance to work in my favorite tongue twister to the new draft.
Happy Friday, everyone! It’s meltingly hot in the Boston area, and all I really want to do is spend a week by a large body of water with a big stack of books. In the meantime, I’ll have to accept a giant iced tea and a little reading and writing at home. Here’s a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer.
Reading: Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Even though it’s not set in summer, definitely one of my new favorite Dessen novels.
Writing: “Boo,” I say. “Too much Shakespeare, not enough smashing of pumpkins.”
High brow, low brow.
