Things are always happening behind-the-scenes here, and we’ve got plenty of new ideas, projects, and features in various stages of planning and production. And after weeks of Leanne’s school-overload hiatus, we are eagerly awaiting her return (which will hopefully be soon)! Don’t you all miss her as much as we do?!
In Case You Missed It
Here’s all the stuff that we posted this week.
- Kelley compared Lindsey Stirling songs to YA novels with the same name.
- Amy stopped by to discuss YA adaptations in the film market.
- Asti shared her thoughts and experience with trying out new features.
- Kelley reviewed Meridian by Josin L. McQuien.
- Asti argued there’s no “perfect” book or “right” rating.
- Day Seven of the Bookish Games began!
Our Lives This Week
This weekend has sort of been a blur for me. Not because it’s been so busy and packed and fast… but sort of the opposite. I really had no outstanding commitments for the first time in like forever, so I’ve been spending a lot of time just winding down: reading books (actually read three this week – which is shocking for me) and watching reality TV (I can’t resist it).
Of course, that’s not to say I haven’t been productive at all. I’ve started working out again (much needed, though sort of pointless since I’m going to pig out when I go home) and have been doing a lot of research and planning for my dissertation (so much work).
Oh, and since my birthday is coming up (one week from today people! Get your cheer on!), I received another lovely birthday gift from Kelley. This time it’s a blank notebook with my name on the cover! (I seem to be having trouble with my words: wasn’t sure what to call the notebook and then was trying to say my name was carved but that didn’t seem quite right… ><). It’s perfect because a) purple! b) I always complain nothing has my name on it and c) it’s super thoughtful. Now I just have to figure out what I want to do with it! Thanks Kelley!
After weeks and weeks of trying to manage my chaotic life, I feel like this past week was somewhat uneventful. That might partially be because I’ve just been doing a lot of sleeping. And, of course, cat photographing.
I also got a letter from Jenn — complete with a goat stamp and a kitty drawing — which was pretty awesome. And in other news, I’m busy planning the next version of The Bookish Games, and working on a new project with Emily!
