Happy Friday, everyone! I know that in a few months I’ll be dreaming of summer again, but for now I’m so done with heat and humidity and I need fall to start asap. (Either that, or I need to find a way to spend the next few weeks reading by a large body of water.) Until then, let’s get the weekend started with a look at what I’ve been reading and writing in fifteen words or fewer:
Reading: This Side of Home by Renée Watson
Touching look at growing up, growing apart, gentrification, and the people who make a neighborhood.
Writing: “You’re either going to start dating or bite his head off like a praying mantis.”
One or the other.
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.
