Welcome to my 100th blog post. . . #amwriting #amreading

Hello, and welcome to my 100th blog post! Apparently, on 100 different occasions over the past ten months I have attempted to come up with something worthwhile to say in this blog. The shocker is that sometimes other people read and comment, which makes me happy. Thank you!

What I’ve Been Up to:

Well, I’ve been blogging a lot lately about reading YA books but haven’t talked as much about books I’m writing. For the record, writing is going well. I’m working on a dark, modern YA fantasy that I’m pretty excited about. Ideas are brewing, the main characters have life (if not set-in-stone names yet), and plotting is about 50% complete. I look forward to sharing more with you about this new novel-baby as it grows and decides what it wants to be.

Of the 100 posts I’ve written for this blog, the one with the most likes is:

How to Tell If You’re a Book Junkie

My personal favorite is:

When a Writing Dream Becomes a Mission

Random fact: April 10 is the 100th day of the year.

Another random fact: I’m kinda crazy good at Scrabble. 


And now we’ve reached the end of my 100th blog post. Thank you for being part of the ride!

      1. I’ve not been great, but the past week or so has been looking way up. Hope to be back to blogging soon. Thanks for asking 🙂 How are you?

        I recently started Ex-Heroes by Peter Clines (which unfortunately suffered some water damage) and I am reaaaaally enjoying it. The character work and worldbuilding is fascinating.


      2. Let’s see. . . Casquette Girls and The Night Circus were enjoyable in completely different ways, but the most recent AMAZING read was A Darker Shade of Magic. Yep, am now a die-hard fan of V.E. Schwab.


    1. Water damage, ugh. Due to water damage (and it honestly wasn’t that bad) I recently had to pay $30 to replace a library book. Now, whenever I leave the house with a book, it goes into a gallon-size Ziploc bag.

      1. LMAO I’d probably have forgotten it was on my shelves, thought about it randomly one day, considered picking it up, and then put it back to start the process all over again–which means I’d NEVER have gotten around to it!

  1. For some reason, I assumed you had written far beyond 100 posts already. I don’t know, you seem like a blogging veteran who’s been around for years,
    Maybe I should slow down with MY posts. I’m already at 45..

    Anyway, I look forward to many more!

    P.S. I’m totally a book junkie. Passed that with flying colors.
