I am currently in the middle of…three books, but honestly, I am almost done two of them. There’s The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan which I am listening to on audiobook and have just over four hours left of, and as I am writing this it is Friday afternoon (I will be offline over the weekend!) so who knows, maybe I will finish it by the time Sunday rolls around. This is a re read so obviously I am enjoying it so I can’t say more than it is as great as I remember! The second book I am working through is Just Listen by Sarah Dessen and I am a good 213 pages into it, meaning I only have about 150 or so to go. Again, another re read which I am really enjoying, however it has been years since I read this book and there is absolutely NO diversity in this book. It is just filled with straight, white people and it just isn’t very realistic. I find it pulling me out of the story often to question that, but still, it is a fun read. Lastly, I have started reading the anthology Meet Cute by a variety of authors. I am only two out of who knows how many stories, and its okay so far. I understand that this is an anthology so the stories can only be so many pages, but the incredibly short length really takes away from the story and I can’t connect to the characters or the stories at all. However, if you are just looking for a light hearted book for Valentines Day or whenever, maybe pick this up!
When it comes to writing I have done a bit, but mostly I have been outlining for future stories. I think I wrote around three thousand words at the beginning of the week, but as I said earlier the rest has just been outlining. I have also been doing some research on Aztec mythology and such, thinking about whether I want to incorporate it in a future story idea I have. I’ve been listening to podcasts and googling things, and their mythology is really interesting! Even if I don’t end up weaving any of it into my story, it is still fascinating to learn about.
That is all for my reading + writing update and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Colours of the Rainbow Book Tag (Original) for a fun, new book tag!
