What's Up Wednesday

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow, and the idea is to let other bloggers know where you are with any writing and reading goals you may have.



1. What I'm reading

I finished reading The One by Kiera Cass; unsurprisingly, it was kind of disappointing, but I'm glad I read it all the same. I also read A Kiss in the Dark by Cat Clarke, which I loved. My mum read it before I did, and she said she found it a little uncomfortable to read, and I could understand why within the very first chapter. It's a great read though; I love Cat Clarke's books. She's one of my favourite authors. 

I'm currently reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, which is a lovely read. I love how different it is.

2. What I'm writing

I haven't done much writing in the past week, but I'm planning on writing a short story once I've finished this blog post. I'm also going to dive back into my NaNo edits over the next week - I haven't even looked at them in such a long time.

3. What else I've been up to

Not much, really - mostly working. I mentioned here that I got a promotion at work; I wasn't supposed to start in my new role until October, but I'm starting tomorrow! I'm really excited about that, even if it means a lot of hard work. 

On Monday I watched Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, which was great - I've been wanting to re-read the books lately, but I'll be getting myself a new set later on this year so I don't want to re-read the series until then. I decided watching the movies might help, but it just made me want to read the books more!

4. What inspires me right now

I know I've said this the past couple of times, but I love this time of year. The weather's getting cooler, the nights are drawing in; winter's just around the corner, and I love that.

  2. Mm. I love it when the weather changes. It's been a while since I've felt the cool that comes with fall, and I miss it. Congrats on your promotion!

  3. I completely agree about fall. Unfortunately, our weather has been wonky here. It was cool all summer and now it is crazy hot. Congratulations on the promotion! And have a great week.

  4. I'm actually enjoying the change of seasons this year too. I love the cooler nights while the days are still warm.

  7. THE BOOK THIEF is such a unique book. My son and I read it together this past year and we're planning on watching the movie some time soon. I always feel in the mood for reading Harry Potter and watching the movies once fall hits. It's like an automatic response now lol. Happy writing on your short story!

  8. I do love Fall, as well. When the weather gets a bit more friendly and everything starts looking like Halloween decorations. =)

  9. Yesterday I watched Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and it was beyond awesome. Right now I'm reading Meg's Secret by Kelly Abell and had finished If I Stay over the weekend. Harry Potter movies are classics and fun watch over and over.

  10. I'm still trying to cram as much relaxing as I can before the storm of classes returns.
