Okay, now that you're settled...
What I've Been ReadingSince school started up again I've been busy, to say the least. A lot of the books I've been reading are for school, some of which I've reviewed here (see The Alchemist and The Road).
And I've also been reading my last manuscript for my internship with Inklings Literary Agency, which was an amazing experience!
Now that I have a short break before I need to read the next book for school (All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy- I'm really excited to read another McCarthy novel!), I'm reading The Sky is Everywhere per Dahlia Adler's excellent recommendation.
|Seriously, this book is breaking my heart in all the best ways.|
And in other book-related news...
I'm now in charge of my library's YA book club! This is a.) exciting and b.) sad, which I know is a weird combination.
Of course I'm thrilled to get to run one of my favorite activities! I already have a whole herd of ideas running through my brain. I'm also flattered that my librarian asked me to take over!
The librarian I mentioned above, the one that started the YA book club and who is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet, got a promotion at another branch. And while I'm really excited for her, it's also hard to say goodbye! (But her new branch isn't so far away, so I think one of the book club's activities will be a field trip...)
Next month's book is Thirteen Reasons Why, a book I read years ago and loved. Can't wait to read it again and to get discussing!
As for everything else, the latest Reader's Report came out not too long ago, I shared a giant book haul collected over 3 weeks, and Inside the Industry will be returning soon with two more interviews!
