What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme geared toward readers and writers, allowing us to touch base with blog friends and let them know what’s up. Should you wish to join us, you will find the link widget at the bottom of Jaime’s post. We really hope you will take part!
What I’m Reading
I had to return The Red Queen’s Daughter to the library before I could finish it, but the 100 pages I got through were super slow, so I wasn’t eager to finish it in a hurry, anyway. I was able to finish The Here and Now, which was an interesting time travel read that reminded me of Cristin Terrill’s All Our Yesterdays, although I didn’t connect to the characters quite as much as I would’ve liked.
I’m almost done with The One now. Like the other books, it’s more an escape than anything else, although there is some character development in Celeste. Who is now my favorite character, because she’s so much more interesting than the others.
What I’m Writing
When I was at breakfast on Monday, I had an idea for a major plot point in FIRE that I’m super excited about. So, clearly, food is always the answer.
What Inspires Me Right Now
I guess we’ve already established that food inspired me this week.
What Else I’ve Been Up To
Getting ready for school to be out! I’m already set to continue subbing next year if I don’t get a job, and to work Other Job exclusively all summer since, yet again, summer school is not a viable option for me. (Alas, all the summer school positions are in areas that I’m not qualified to teach.) This is really my last full week for the school year, since I’ll be gone every day except one next week – my sister is graduating from college and we’re also going to a concert (which was completely unrelated when we bought the tickets, but will be a nice celebration nonetheless).
