I've been busy, writing, working, mothering, and performing all the other ...ing's in my life. So, I thought I'd share what's been up because, really, my brain is fried from work today. And here we go:
1. I finished reading Crossed by Ally Condie. It was not my favorite book but it was still good. Why did I not love it? The pacing was off to me. I actually skipped a few paragraphs, while our MC discussed the color of the landscaping around them in vivid detail. I love description but I like it to a minimum. Still, I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Coincidentally, I still have not read Allegiant. My oldest daughter bought me Insurgent for Christmas (She just started the series) and thought that I hadn't read it yet. I have it on my Kindle so she made an honest mistake. *pumps fist at her behind her back* I guess I'll get to it one day.
2. I'm reading, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green now. I know that I'm probably a little late with this one. I read the first five chapters of this book a while ago and loved the voice. But I knew I wasn't ready to read it yet. I picked it back up a few days ago and will finish it this time. It's not that I think it will be hard because of the writing. I adore Hazel (the MC and Augustus) I just have an aversion to crying. But I think this one might be a tear-jerker.
3. Author, Kitsy Clare, is debuting the cover for her new NA novella, Model Position. The novella will be available on Feb. 20 for purchase. It’s a totally swoon worthy cover. Check it out here! That cover has me itching to read the contents. I've already added it to my TBR on Goodreads.
4. I found a professional editor for my MS, Finding Me. I'm so excited and nervous. I found her while reading a post over at Quanie Miller's blog. Thanks, Quanie!
What have you been up to? Read any good books lately?
Have a great day. Read a book and laugh!
