  • What I’ve read this week: Faefever by Karen Marie Moning | Dance of Fire by Yelena Black | Rogue by Julie Kagawa | Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning | Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella | The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten | Uninvited by Sophie Jordan | The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand | Pieces of Sky by Trinity Doyle |

read-this-week

  • Currently reading: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
  • I’ve also delved into the land of writing synopsises. Good god I hate them with a PASSION.
  • I decided I should bow out of Camp NaNoWriMo this month. I have heaaaaaaps of other projects eying me jealously, so I thought I would turn my attention to them. Namely, The Empire of Stars, which I love to pieces.

  1. OOH YAY glad you liked The Unlikely Hero of Room 13b, I borrowed that from my school library :P oh and I hope you like Saint Anything – it’s a great Dessen to start with :) And yeahhhh, I’m not doing Camp NaNo either. I must have been insane to do it last year, because this year I barely have the free time to do ANYTHING let alone write a novel.

    …plus I have about a million first drafts sitting in folders that have been a bit neglected, poor things.

  2. I SPY THE CATALYST!! *cheers wildly from the sidelines* I hope you like that and omg (!!) I consider The Unlikely Hero one of my TOP reads of this year. It was adorable and unique and just adorable. DID I MENTION ADORABLE? I love Batman.
    I thought about doing Camp NaNo, and theeeen I realised I should be responsible and edit. BUT ERGH EDITING. I also hate synopsises, so good luck with yours. :O I feel they’re worse than queries because at least queries can be full of voice and hooky, and synopsis are like “they went here, people died, no one got to eat lunch, then they went there”. WAh.
    How are you liking the Bone Season??

  3. I just finished Finding Audrey and thought it was cute so interested to see your thoughts. Also I just got Saint Anything from the library today and it will be my first Sarah Dessen so I am excited. No Where But Here is one I want to get to eventually. Enjoy all your new books!

  4. I’ve heard wonderful things about The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B from Cait, and now to see that you really enjoyed it too has convinced me to give it a try… I hope my library has it too! Saint Anything will be my first Dessen novel as well so here’s to hoping we both like it :)

  5. How did you read NINE books last week?! A GREAT week for me is, like, four or five! I also thought about doing Camp NaNoWriMo this month, but I failed in April and I’ve got so much going on in my life that I really don’t want to add another huge project to the list. Oh, I hope you really like The Girl at Midnight! It’s one of my favorite books of the year so far. :)

  6. I loved The Unlikely Hero too. So perfect and really heartwarming, Did you tear up too? The Catalyst, I so hope you have more luck with it than I did. I had so many issues with it that I considered a therapy session. Sad that you’re not doing the writing camp, I loved seeing your updates on Twitter last camp and how you KILLED. IT. Looking forward to hearing about your current WIP though. Thanks for sharing Kara and hopefully Crimson Bound turns up soon <3

  7. I envy your ability to read 9 books in one week. I’m lucky if I read 3. I really want to read Crimson bound.I’m not sure when i’ll get to read it though, i’m trying not to buy any books this month.
