Total number of books read this month: 10
ARCs: 2. Illegal and Kill the Farm Boy. I recommend both! Illegal is a graphic novel about immigrant siblings from Ghana. Kill the Farm Boy is a zany adult fantasy which upends practically every fantasy trope in the book. Very enjoyable!
Number of people I purchased The Belles for this month: 2. Seriously. If you haven’t read it yet, you’re missing out.
Audiobooks listened to this month: 7! And I wrote about favorite audiobook narrators here.
Best of the Month: Winter by Marissa Meyer (a satisfying end to the quartet of books) and The Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula Le Guin, which I had never read. I’ll be checking out more of that series soon.
Finished the edits and sent my dear little book along to my agent. Hoping to hear back notes soon, and in the meantime, working on essays and smaller stuff. This month I published a piece in Scary Mommy, wrote an exasperated thing on my Medium , and finished edits for something forthcoming in Split Lip (can’t wait!)
Taking a social media hiatus in July to help get started on something new. Planning on doing Camp NaNoWriMo!
On a less happy note, my computer crashed– blue-screened– and luckily I had backed things up recently. If you haven’t DO IT NOW. It could have been a real nightmare otherwise!
