And I’m finally reading again! I know this will come as a shock (sit down, grab your chair), but I haven’t read a single book for 2 weeks. I’ve read 80 books this year and I did get a little…worn out. SO. I took a break. Wrote a book. Now I’m ready to tackle the ominous TBR. Funny how it builds up when you’re not watching.
I also finished writing my book! 50K in 10 days! I’m very happy. (It’s a Peter Pan retelling…well, you know, if Peter Pan included blood sucking faeries and humans with crow wings and infatuations with cake.) I plan not to look at it ever again. Ha. I’m kidding. Just…I won’t look at it for a while.
HUGE thanks to Walker Books for More Than This, because a) gorgeous cover, and b) John Green endorsed this, and c) it sounds fantastic. But I didn’t realise how big it was. What a whopper.
Thank you Bloomsbury for Take Back the Skies and Searching for Sky. Obviously the “sky” is a big deal in the Bloomsbury world right now. (Fair enough.) These worth both surprises, but I’m SO freakishly excited for Take Back the Skies because it’s written by a teen author!!
Thanks Text Publishing for The Minnow. Text runs this yearly competition to get published, see blogglings, and this is the winner of last years. Which is freakishly cool. Also: insane cover love.
Thanks Hot Key Press for Love Letters to the Dead. I’ve seen raving reviews of this one so I’m pretty dang excited.
I borrowed The Dream Thieves from the library and ohhhh my GOSH. I am happy! I’ve wanted this for ages and the library finally got it and huzzah, huzzah my grin is as wide as a Cheshire cat’s.
And let’s hear it for some intense COVER LOVE! These are my favourite covers of my stack this week. Just too gorgeous not to share.
