Reading + Writing Update

Happy Sunday!

This was a really good reading AND writing week which makes me so incredibly happy, and I only hope that November is as well! I finished three books this past week: the last few hours City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (via audiobook), the last 100ish pages of The Light Between Worlds (make sure you check out my non-spoiler review of it HERE!), and the last 84 pages of Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden. I also made it through a few other books I’ve been reading for a while, and the end of all of them is so close! I am hoping to get them all read before October is over (so like, in 3 days…) and since I am enjoying them so much I think I can manage it. I am about halfway through Emergency Contact by Mary H.K Choi so I have about 180ish pages left and so far, I am liking it. It’s not mind-blowing or anything, but its a fun, nice book to curl up with at the end of the day. I’ve also made progress with Traplines by Eden Robinson which I am also just over halfway through. I have to return it to the library by Tuesday so I will definitely be putting this as my top priority this coming week, especially since I am using it for a writing class assignment. Okay, the last book I have to update you on is my current audiobook listen which is Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier, the second book in the Ruby Red trilogy (or Precious Stones trilogy, I don’t know what it’s called). I started listening to this on Thursday and am 3/8 hours through it. Since I have a long week of busing and walking, I will definitely be able to get it done by the end of Wednesday because I absolutely love these audiobooks and this story!

As for writing, I definitely did some writing this week but what exactly, is escaping my mind. I am pretty sure that I wrote two drafts of my short story assignment for my writing class, but then I changed the idea and wrote the new draft today. I also worked on editing some short stories and even entered a local writing contest which was a lot of fun! It has been a few months since I’ve entered a writing contest and even though it was for tiny, short stories that were about 100 words long, it was a nice feeling to get my work back out there.

Anyways, that is all for this update and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post, as well as my social media accounts which are all linked down below. Thanks 🙂
