A Week in the Life of A Writer: Experimenting with Daily Blogging

As many of you know, I am not a daily blogger. Heck, getting me to post once a month is practically a miracle. But I really want to change that. In fact, back in January it was going to be one of my resolutions, and the other day I finally thought of an idea to get me motivated.

I’m going to blog every day for five days, detailing what it’s like to be an (almost) full time, stay at home writer. I’ll post pictures of my routine as well as updates on some projects I’m messing with. It’ll be a more detailed view of all the behind the scenes moments readers never get to see. I also thought it might help any aspiring writers out there that want a better idea of all it entails to publish on your own, as well as all the little details no one tells you about.

I hope this sounds interesting to you all! I plan to start Monday and post more towards the evening. Maybe we’ll both learn some things along the way 😉 #DailyBlogChallenge

2018 Reading List So Far…

So, how is everyone’s 2018 going so far? Well I hope. Mine has been…interesting, I guess you could say lol. I got a cold, which stunk, but it gave me more time for reading, meaning I’ve checked off two of the ten books I wanted to read this year. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I usually up the number throughout the year based on the amount of reads I find. Hopefully I’ll find some great ones this year, and if you have any you’d like to recommend, please do so in comments! I love seeing what you guys are into at the moment.

I’m happy to report that so far I’ve loved every book of 2018! “The Scorpio Races” by Maggie Stiefvater is one I’ve read before, but that was a whopping five years ago, and for Christmas I received the paperback edition, which I was SO psyched about. I loved it the first time I read it and I loved it even more the second time. And “The Shadowhunters Codex” by Cassandra Clare and Joshua Lewis was a new read but a great one. If you’re familiar with the Shadowhunter series, then you’ll understand what the codex is. It’s a book containing all knowledge on Shadowhunters and their culture/history, as well as information on magical creatures such as warlocks, faeries, and werewolves. I really enjoyed feeling like a Shadowhunter while reading it, and I’m glad I finally get to cross it off my reading list after having it sitting there for years!

So what about you? What’s your reading list looking like at the moment? Did you set a challenge for yourself? Let me know down below!

And my favorite book of 2017 was…

As the title suggests, I’ve decided to post my favorite book of 2017 a little early, only because I know I probably won’t get a whole lot of reading done in the two months left of the year. So, without further ado…

Surprise! LOL.

It was an easy decision which book was my ultimate this year. I loved loved loved this book. Seriously, it was one of the cleverest stories I’ve ever read. The characters were amazing, the plot was incredible, and the world building left me feeling like I’d been transported to the city of Ketterdam. It has stuck with me since I read it many, many months ago, and that’s how I rate a book: if I’m left thinking about it long after I closed the cover. Which means “Six of Crows” takes the cake!

So, what’s been your favorite read so far this year ? Did you set a challenge for yourself? At this point I’ve read 16 of the 15 I had set for myself. I’d love to hear from you in comments if you’ve reached your goal as well!
