I’m a Little Rusty But Here It Goes…

Between some serious seasonal depression, new job/coworkers, and settling back into life with my beau, it’s been hectic to say the least. But with BEA and Bout of Books coming up, I really wanted to get back in the swing of things. So here I am, announcing to the world, I’m back bitches and stronger than ever!

Just last night, I was lying in bed thinking about my undergrad thesis. I graduated from Pratt Institute’s creative writing program. To complete the program, every undergrad had to write a 60 page work of fiction with a 10 page introduction. Yeah, that’s right, 70 pages total thesis for an UNDERGRAD program. Pratt don’t play when it comes to art. I was thinking back and remembering how little time I spent on revising and how much I’d love to go back and polish it up. Then I thought, well you have a blog dummy, go write something on that first.

It’s funny how things work out that way. I’ve missed you guys. I’ve missed writing. But most of all, I’ve missed reading. Here is my pledge to read every day, no matter how much, and to reach out more. The book blogging community is filled with such kind and passionate people. I definitely want to put names to faces when I see most of you at BEA next month!


#ReadingCram Challenge: Teaser

Reading challenge hosted by Jenny @ Juliababyjen’s Reading Room and Dana @ Danasquare from December 9th-22nd.

Challenge: Open the book you are currently reading to a random page and post two teaser sentences.

Avalon (Avalon #1) by Mindee Arnett

Teaser #1:

“He wants the Aether Project, or whatever it is that Vince and Sierra just escaped with.”

Teaser #2:

“So, how long do we wait before we give up?” asked Shady an hour later.

Both sentences were taken from pp. 164 (according to the ebook page count anyways). These are completely out of context for me as well because as I write this, I’m only on pp. 58.
