I'm sad to see the end of summer; I feel like we barely experienced it this year (damn you, rain!). February was another slow month on the blog for me - this pesky thing called real life kept getting in the way. On the plus side, I started my writing course a couple of weeks ago, and it's kinda daunting but also totally inspiring. At any given moment, my thoughts swing between "I can actually do this! I can totally write a novel!" to "What's the point in even trying, I'll never be able to do it..." Yeah, that's my crazy head - but either way it's a lot of fun. Seriously, I got way too excited over receiving the course reader. It feels good to be a student again. Here's what I got up to on the blog...
- The Maid's Tale by Rose Plummer (Review for Sassi Sam)
- If You Ask Me by Betty White
- The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (my fave of the month)
my book boyfriend; I discovered some lovely bookish gifts; Watched the impressive Finnick and Annie fan-made web series; and admired Oona Patterson's bookish art.
How was your February? Did you do anything exciting for the leap day? (I spent it home sick, watching Pillars of the Earth. Fun times.)
