WHAT I'M READING
I read Emma, a retelling by Alexander McCall Smith. Wish I could talk about this book with someone because I have lots to say about it, which I won't do here. The one positive I will say is that I loved the dry, understated humor throughout. Then I read The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski. I was so into this book that if there was anything wrong with it, I definitely didn't notice. Awesome awesome book! Next up, All Fall Down by Ally Carter.
WHAT I'M WRITING
I got in around 5k this week. I should hit 40k today, yahoo! I also finished beta-ing a YA contemp.
WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Beta reading. I don't think I'm the best critiquer out there, but I find I learn as much reading for someone else as I do when others read for me. It pays to give back!
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
Not much. I swear, everyone I know is going on holidays sometime soon but we are going NOWHERE and won't be this entire year. Boo. The cold weather makes this even more depressing. I've started posting Love Lists on Fridays because I want to celebrate the positive and the things I go crazy for. Hopefully this will help lift the winter blah's too.
