Lit Post: Keeper of the Peace

One of the items on the Reading Challenge this year was to read a book where the main character shared your name. I was originally going to read Thirteen Reasons Why but when Bookbub popped up with a free download of Keeper of the Peace, I decided to try reading that instead. (Have I mentioned … Continue reading Lit Post: Keeper of the Peace

NaNoWriMo: An Update and Things I’ve Learned

Yes, I have fallen off the writing wagon hard. Remember I said I was reading the Divergent series? Yeah, I probably should have waited until after NaNoWriMo was over to read it. One thing I have always known about myself, but not really acknowledged: it's hard for me to find a happy medium sometimes between … Continue reading NaNoWriMo: An Update and Things I’ve Learned

Lit Tuesday: NaNoWriMo

I think I mentioned in my Life Happens post recently that I'm going to attempt NaNoWriMo. (That's National Novel Writing Month if you remember.) I first attempted this back in college in 2011. I have tried every year except for one, I think (probably 2015 because Miles and I had just gotten married) and I … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: NaNoWriMo

Lit Tuesday: Reading Challenge Check #3

Hey, look! It's an actual Lit post on Lit Tuesday! I have actually made some progress on this since I last posted about it. I have read Hunter, The Alchemist, Mother Ireland, and Chosen Soldiers. Reviews on those will be forthcoming, naturally. A book you read in school: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Reading Challenge Check #3

Lit Post: Hunter and The Alchemist

Sorry, y'all. Things have been crazy. So much so that I'm considering changing my posts to Lit Post and Thirsty Post instead of forcing myself to adhere to a schedule. It's amazing how life gets in the way. So, as far as my reading challenge goes, I can mark off another two books! I finished … Continue reading Lit Post: Hunter and The Alchemist

Lit Tuesday: The Summer Tree

I don't have a long post for tonight. As always, things have been busy and I need to make sure I set some time aside to write. Maybe I should start doing that in the mornings while I drink my first cup of coffee instead of mindlessly looking at Pinterest. We'll see. So, my book … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: The Summer Tree

Lit Tuesday: Three Series on the Shelves

Yes, I’m still alive. Yes, I’m still a slacker. Yes, I’m still working on learning how to actually force myself to sit down and make time to write up things. As much as I’d feel like it’s cheating, maybe what I need to do is start writing my posts on Sunday or over the weekend. … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Three Series on the Shelves

Lit Tuesday: Post-Apocalyptic Reading List

I mentioned last week that I finally finished part one of my post-apocalyptic story. (No, I haven’t done any more writing to it because the writing assignment I have for my book club/writing group is staring me in the face, taunting me. I need to finish it.) Following that post, a co-worker of mine mentioned … Continue reading Lit Tuesday: Post-Apocalyptic Reading List
