Reading + Writing Update!

Another Sunday has come which means I have to write another reading and writing update. Luckily I actually managed to accomplish some things this week that I am really excited share them with you!

So this past week I was in the middle of reading three books, but I am happy to say that I finished one. The book I managed to finish was The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, a contemporary following two characters, Daniel and Natasha, who meet one day and the story follows their relationship as it grows over the course of several hours. I had pretty high hopes going into this book because I love contemporaries, and also I have heard really good things about it. I did end up enjoying it, but it wasn’t amazing or anything and I don’t think I would re read it, but it definitely satisfied my contemporary crave for a few days. Apart from finishing that book, I am also about two hundred pages into Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and one hundred into The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. My goal is to finish Shatter Me by the end of today or tomorrow, but as for The Book Thief I am reading it for my English class so I won’t finish that until the beginning of April.

For once I feel like I was more productive writing wise than reading wise, and let me tell you, that doesn’t happen often. I didn’t keep track of how much I wrote exactly, but I do know it was somewhere between three and four thousand words. I don’t remember the last time I wrote that many words, but I know for a fact that I will have more weeks from now on looking like that as I am taking my writing more seriously. I am paying for writing that many words in a short period of time though, because now the muscles in my shoulders and upper back are completely screwed. Even writing this now they are hurting and tightening, which means this may be the last thing I write for today. Hopefully it gets better soon because I have some contest deadlines I really want to make.

That is all for my reading and writing update, and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog posts: Tips for New Writers!
