Life: A short update this week, because as mentioned last week, revisions are taking top priority at the moment. But in short – got to see friends and family this week, go into the city for dinner with an old friend (hi Will, looking at you!) and tried kickboxing. Which was awesome. Except that that was Thursday, and abs are still sore. #unathleticpeopleproblems
Writing: Have I mentioned revisions lately? Or how they’re the spawn of the devil? Ah well. Moving onwards, and feeling good about what I have fixed/rewritten. Plan for this coming week (read: rest of my foreseeable life) – more revisions!!! Joy.
Reading: Finished the 11th in J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood (oops how did that happen?) and read Erica O’Rourke’s Torn (an action-packed YA Urban Fantasy set in Chicago with a super well done love triangle) as well as Sarah Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Rose’s (fabulous Beauty and the Beast retelling with dark twists, gorgeous writing and beautiful men). I love both authors – they are wonderful people, who also write incredibly well. Sarah’s books (Throne of Glass – go read now!) I have read before and adored. This is my first book of Erica’s, and I will definitely be reading the rest of the series and her next one – so good. And of course…. reading ACOTAR has not helped at all with my impatience for the next in Sarah’s Throne of Glass series, Queen of Shadows, out in September. Patience… what’s that again?
