Today, I am beginning a new writing schedule. The last couple of months, I have struggled with finding my groove, so I decided I needed to implement a more structured writing schedule to help get my groove back. That means that I will spend certain times during the week focusing strictly on the blog, and then there will be certain times completely devoted to my other writing projects. The more I think about it, the more excited I get. Because, I think it can help me with focusing more on my reading in the evenings as well. Which brings me to what I really wanted to talk about today . . . my latest reading updates!
Here we are in the middle of March, and at the time that I am writing this, I have officially completed twenty (20!) books this year. Wow! A good chunk of them have been graphic novels/comics, but there have also been a handful of audiobooks and print books as well.
In fact, I have recently completed two audiobooks that I have really enjoyed: Bossypants by Tina Fey (absolutely hilarious) and Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford (beautifully tragic). I will share more detailed reviews in the weeks to come, but I just had to give them a quick shout-out now.
I also recently finished some great graphics that have really stood out: American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang and Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. Both of these were memoirs, but completely different in so many ways, and yet both so impressionable on me.
That leaves me with my current reads. I decided to jump on board (a little late) with the #gangstercats readalong of Pet Sematary by Stephen King. This is actually a re-read for me, but it has been sooooo long since I read it that I don't remember much about it besides the very basic plot. I have not shared a lot of my thoughts while I have been reading so far, but reading what everyone else has to say is very entertaining.
My other main read is The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen. This is my first book by Allen thanks to so many recommendations from fellow friends and bloggers. I have only just begun, but am enjoying the main characters of this one so far.
The final books by my side are On Writing by Stephen King (such an amazing resource!) and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (still reading this one with my kids).
If my year continues in reading as it has thus far, I have to say that 2015 may just turn out to be a fabulous year in the books!
How has your year in reading been so far? What books are you currently reading?
