I've been reading a ton lately. It all started with me being sick on the couch for a week. Strep. Yuck. Anyway, sadly this means that I haven't written much but that's life sometimes.
Here are the books I've read and suggest to all of you.
I love Jessica Day George's books. These are clean and exciting. The first was my favorite and then the second and third. Mostly because the last one deals more with dragons and I missed the interaction with the people and the city. But they're good.
And then I picked this up off the shelve at the library.
It was cute. A quick read with the same lovable character's in a modern setting. Forget marriage, though, these teens are out for a prom date :) Oh and I should mention that it's also a clean book. I love clean romance!
Next up, do you all remember my interview with Carol? I'm so excited to meet up with her this weekend! Besides my awesome friend Shallee, I've never actually met another writer face to face. I know, I need to get out more. Just had to share the excitement. If anyone else is planning on being in Portland, Oregon this weekend, let me know!
And thanks to some notes from my dear friend Shallee, who had the opportunity to go to the LDStorymaker's conference, I had a breakthrough with my novel! Something clicked. Yes, I still have a ton of work to do (especially since this breakthrough will take some definite revising), but this is SO big! I feel like one more thing has fallen into place. *Sigh*
