I was recently thinking about how I want to expand the kinds of books I read, and that gave me this idea.
Is this a discussion post?
Last week I posted Part 1 of Reacting to my Old Writing, in which I read the first half of my middle school magnum opus. Go check it out before you read this post.
Get ready for some deep questions to be answered and some tea to be spilled.
I’ve been planning- or rather, procrastinating- getting back into creative writing for a while. I used to be really into it; I wanted to be a writer since I was five and wrote my first “book”, but when I started high school I kind of fell out of inspiration (if that phrasing makes any sense).
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how CREATIVE the entire concept of this book is? I really should read more sci-fi.
I was nominated for this tag by Sweaters & Raindrops! She has a really cool book blog with lots of great reviews and interesting bookish posts. (And a great blog name!)
To whoever created this award, I love the name and picture! The Sunshine Blogger Award- it just sounds so… summery and cheerful. I desperately needed some cheerfulness right now.
Well… that was unexpected. In every sense of the word.
Is it just me, or did July feel like the longest month we’ve had this year?
It felt like one long time vacuum. What did I even do this month?
I NEED to meet Holly Jackson. Right now. This woman is a genius.
Another blogging award??? Thank you so much to Writing for Christ for nominating me! (Sorry I took so long to write this post)
It’s the middle of July, it’s been 100 degrees every day for the past week, and I am pretty much done with summer. But still, I can’t resist reviewing this irresistibly summery book from the quintessential summer contemporary author, because if I can’t have a summery summer at least I can read about one.
You’re reading a great story. The plot is wonderful, you’re completely absorbed, you are convinced this will be your next 5-star read… until it happens. The author uses THAT trope. That irritating, cliche, hackneyed trope that you cannot stand. Suddenly all the fervor is gone from your reading, and you sigh when you realize that here is yet another book to go on that 3-4 star pile.
A New England prep school, a murder mystery, the remarkable descendants of famous literary figures… Intriguing Premises 101.
This book somehow managed to cover serious topics while maintaining an eloquent mix of realistic, dark, and sarcastically funny delivery.
Are we seriously more than halfway through 2020? This is a miracle.
I’m doing this tag kind of late, but I’d like to thank Krisha @ Krisha’s Cosy Corner for nominating me!
WOW… another 5-star read for 2020. It’s only been two days, and I already want to re-read this exceptionally powerful novel.
Half mystery and half historical fiction, Where the Crawdads Sing had a very intriguing premise. I’m not sure how I felt about the execution, though.
I’m having a hard time believing it’s already July; since quarantine started, everything has blended together into one long expanse of monotonous social distancing. March feels like it was simultaneously last week and five years ago. I thought writing a monthly wrap-up would help break up the Groundhog Day feeling, so here’s a little overview of what I read and blogged about this month!
This has got to be one of the most funny, current, and relatable books I have read this year!
