I decided to do a mashup with Road Trip Wednesday and What’s Up Wednesday this week because I wanted to do both. What’s Up Wednesday is hosted by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk, and as always, Road Trip Wednesday is hosted by YA Highway.
To be honest, May was a really lackluster reading month for me. Making this pick was disappointingly easy, because there was only one book that stood out.
It started off a little slowly – which I seem to remember from the previous two books when I read them last year, too – but once the tension built, things got going and didn’t let up until the end. Probably one of the best conclusions to a series I’ve read.
What I’m Reading:
I’m reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer. Still. I’m enjoy it, but I’ve been so focused on SHARDS the past week that I haven’t really been reading as much when I’m not at work.
I’ve also been reading pieces of a couple of different manuscripts, which has been fun. It helps that I’m not looking at my own manuscript…
What I’m Writing:
Still polishing up SHARDS. I got some more feedback on it, so I’ve been working that into my edits. I’ve also been playing around with FIRE a little. I reworked the first chapter and sent it to Ifeoma, who’s been bugging me for more. This book might get written yet 🙂
I also wrote a synopsis with the help of this post by Susan Dennard. It was relatively painless. I don’t understand why so many people are afraid of synopses…
What Inspires Me Right Now:
While I didn’t have high hopes for June initially (“Junuary” is a questionably affectionate nickname a lot of people around here use), the past few days have been gorgeous.
There’s a distinct possibility that I’m solar powered.
What Else I’ve Been Up To:
If you couldn’t tell from the above sections, I’ve been cultivating my hermit-ing skills.
That being said, I am traveling down to my homeland this weekend to visit my family because I miss their faces
and also I like free food. So I guess next week I’ll report back on which episodes of Big Bang Theory we watched.
I kid. Mostly.
