Hello!! It’s been a while! Unfortunately I have been sick for the past week or so and I haven’t been able to do anything except lay down and cough for most of the day. I couldn’t even read for more than a week without falling asleep (can you hear my heart breaking?) so it’s been a pretty sick week and a half. But I wanted to quickly update you on a few things that have happened this past week. So here it goes…
I started writing a book. A real book. With words and everything. I’ve always been the type of person who will say they want to start writing and never get around to it. Or I’ll start writing but I won’t finish it. I’m determined to write this book. It might not be very long, but I’m really happy with it so far and it’s taken up a lot of the time I haven’t just been laying in bed. So I’ll try to get these posts out a good amount, but I’m really going to try to just bang this book out first.
Second. ALL MY DREAMS HAVE COME TRUE! As you all know, I absolutely love the two released Bone Season books by Samantha Shannon. Well, when her most recent book came out, The Mime Order, I had preordered it at least a month in advance because Bloomsbury Publishing had printed 500 copies of a pamphlet, On the Merit of Unnaturalness, that is constantly being talked about in both of the books and were giving them away to the first 500 people who preorder the book once it was available for preorder. I did my best, but I wasn’t expecting anything.
A couple days ago, though, I received a tiny package that said “Bloomsbury Publishing” in faint letters and I was giddy. What an amazing thing to come home to when you’re sick. So I haven’t started reading it yet (I’m still reading Gone Girl since I haven’t read it in two weeks) but I will be starting it as soon as I get done with Gone Girl!
So that’s what’s been going on. Hopefully I’ll be able to give you a little sneak peak of what I’m writing once I really get into the story! I hope you’ll all like it!
Until next time, happy reading!
