I had to go back to school. Unfortunately. This is my last term of year 11, which is terrifying, obviously. So I’ll have much less time to read. But I’ll still be posting most days of the week – you can’t get rid of me that easily!
I’ve also reached 40,000 words on Wanderland which is exciting. My Camp NaNoWriMo aim is 50,000, which is in sight, but the whole novel will probably be the longest I’ve ever written. I’m thinking about 80,000 words at the moment – BANANAS. My longest has been about 70,000. Ish.
I’m also Stacking the Shelves!
Stacking the Shelves is a book meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It’s all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual.
A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray, thanks to HarperTeen Australia. Have you SEEN the cover art for this one, though????
It’s absolutely beautiful. But the story itself sounds absolutely amazing (I love stories with parallel universes) so it’s totally worth it. I can just admire the cover art from afar.
Also, The Summer of Kicks by Dave Hackett thanks to UQP. I LOVED Dave Hackett’s younger books, and his cartoons, when I was in primary school. So I’m very excited to read this one, which is YA.
Books Read Since Last Week
The Sky So Heavy was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND HEART-BREAKING and five stars. I’m so glad I read it. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was a re-read for the millionth time. No less sad, though. Still not sure what to think about We Were Liars.
I’ve only read the first page, but it’s awesome. And I loved The Sky So Heavy so I have high expectations.
SO excited to read this one soon!!
Gif of the Week
If you were unaware, this gif is from A Very Potter Musical, which is a fan-made Harry Potter musical. You can find it on Youtube and YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY WATCH IT, IT IS HILARIOUS. That is all.
