This week I was down at the south coast where my grandparents live. And I mean, they have internet, but it’s not very functional. Besides, they have this strange thing where they only have the wi-fi turned on when they’re actually using it. I know. Weird. But I made some pretty cards, so that was good. I made the envelopes as well – lots of fun. Although I think I’ll stick to what I’m good at, which is writing and not doing art (some of my fingernails are still pink from marker pens no matter how much I scrub them).
I also read quite a lot. My sister Sophie read Broken Strings by Maria Farrer while I read Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige, and then we swapped. The exciting thing about that is that Sophie MIGHT be co-reviewing them with me (MIGHT…she can be pretty grumpy when she wants to be. Although I shouldn’t be too mean because she’s probably reading this).
Stacking the Shelves will have to wait for next week, because all my books get delivered to my mum’s house, and I’m not there at the moment.
Camp NaNoWriMo also started this week. I’m scheduling this blog post on Saturday, but by the time it goes up, I will have reached (and probably gone past) 10,000 words. I mean, it’s only a first draft but I’m having SO much fun with Wanderland and my main character. Look out for excerpts in the near future 🙂
Books Read Since Last Week
I’ve already reviewed How to Convince a Boy to Kiss You, and the rest are at least four stars, so I’ve had a very good reading week. Flirty Dancing really surprised me with its awesomeness. As for Breaking Butterflies…well, you’ll have to wait and see my review, but it’s certainly a disturbing book.
I haven’t let you guys choose my next read in a really long time. And now that I’ve read a fair few of my review books, I have oodles of time (maybe not oodles…but still). I have a lame book to read for English in the coming week, but I will read whatever you choose as well.

Posts on the Blog
Monday: I asked you which fictional characters you identify with.
Tuesday: I had Rachael Craw over for an interview (which featured the awesome potato gif up there)
Wednesday: I told you about what happened in June
Friday: I talked about YA and MG classics everyone should read
What am I doing right now, you ask? Probably writing feverishly. And procrastinating. But hopefully writing. My characters are now in Maddenheart and it’s such a weird place. They need all the help they can get.
How was your week? Oh, and don’t forget to vote on the book I should read next!
