You might’ve noticed I haven’t done a Sunday Weekly Wrap Up in a couple of weeks. I’ll probably be cutting down on the amount I do — probably one every two or so weeks. BUT, as you can imagine, I’ll probably have more frequent Stacking the Shelves, because, you know, apparently I can’t walk past a bookshelf (or a library) without walking into it. Speaking of, currently reading The Martian, and damn, it’s AWESOME. The main character is siriusly (har har har) hilarious and witty. Around halfway though and only am I grudgingly putting it down to write this post.
Other books read this week include: Obsession by Jennifer L. Armentrout | An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir | Blackbird by Anna Carey | Uprooted by Naomi Novik | Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott | Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry | Iced by Karen Marie Moning | (Favourite read definitely An Ember in the Ashes — I know there were some mixed reviews, but it was just so damn engaging I couldn’t put it down. Literally read it in one sitting.)
Aaaaaaaand I caved. I joined Instagram. It’ll take me a little while to used to. So, really, don’t expect anything really interesting from me there — probably just books. And most likely food. (But ESPECIALLY books.)
At the moment I’m currently plodding my way through some more Frayed revisions. But, thankfully, I’m finding these ones muuuuuuuch easier than the last round, and excitingly, these are the last Big Edits before copyediting. COPYEDITING. I am freakishly excited for nit-picky comma placement and whatnot. (If you’re curious: ARCs will most likely be out December.) Whiiiiiich brings me to my next point. It’s almost the END of July! WHERE ON EARTH HAS THE MONTH GONE? It’s almost August. Then in September — I’m off to the UK with family. Better start scheduling some blog posts!
Also, on a related note: would you want to read about my UK adventures here on the blog? (It’s sure to include loooooots of photos.)
