Update Thursday #23
Welcome to Update Thursday, my own personal meme of sorts where I post an update of the goings on at my blog, with reading, with writing, and beyond. Feel free to borrow the idea from me for your own bookish musings.
I still have my Giveaway going so please, don't forget to enter! If you accidentally enter twice, don't worry, you still qualify. So please! Enter! You've got a week and a half left!
Books I finished this week:
~The Grand Escape by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Books I'm reading now (and some still):
~Persuasion by Jane Austen (Summer Romance Challenge)
~Virals by Kathy Reich
~Portal by Imogen Rose
~That Summer by Sarah Dessen (Summer Romance Challenge)
I am seriously behind on my reading. My attempt at finishing the Summer Romance Challenge kind of has me at a standstill. I am enjoying it, but it's taking a long time. Persuasion is very detailed and unlike most books I read, so it's difficult. I think the only thing keeping me going on it is the fact that I love the movie and know it top to bottom. I want to try and read something else in between, but the end of September is the end of the Challenge, and I WANT TO FINISH!! I will not let the Challenge go by without completion.
I was FINALLY able to put together the beginning with an important scene in my YA romance story. I was even able to tweak the scene easily to input a new variation on the reason why it happened. So satisfying. Of course, since then I haven't done a thing. That's okay. One small step at a time.
Not much going on otherwise. Visited with family on Sunday, shopping with my mom and a friend Monday. There's been a huge baby boom within my family and friends circle. A girl I grew up with is having a boy, the couple we rented our old house from is having a girl, a cousin just found out she is pregnant, and another cousin is having twin girls. I have to admit, I am LOVING baby gift shopping! All the little tiny cute clothes and toys and shoes... AWWW...
Anyways, that's it for now. TTYL!
PS: Don't forget the Giveaway!!! ;)
