Book Review: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Carry On (Simon Snow, #1)Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I honestly picked this book up because of the author’s name. I thought it was a cool name. I ended up actually really liking it and, as we were so slow at work, reading it all in 2 days.

I have to say, the spells never stopped being silly and making me laugh, and I didn’t love Agatha, but overall this was just a solid book. If you like worlds of magic and an interesting way of swapping POVs, this is a good one to give a go

Book Review: Fallow by Jordan L. Hawk

Fallow (Whyborne & Griffin, #8)Fallow by Jordan L. Hawk

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love this series so much, but for some reason, I really enjoyed this installment. I think it was the introspection in the main characters that made this one stand out. It isn’t my favorite of the series, but it’s very close to being such! I’m really excited to continue this series after taking a break to (try to) read other things along the way.

You can’t go wrong with this series, and this installment is just another wonderfully written tale of terror and turmoil for our dear Whyborne and Griffin!

NaNoWriMo 26: I Might Finish Early If I Try

NaNo27

So here’s the thing: I’m not PROUD of winning it by being a rebel and recording ALL my fictional written words, but I also acknowledge that, though I’ve never been formally diagnosed, since I was about 20 I’ve exhibited similar symptoms to ADD so on the off chance I am Adult ADD, maybe this is really as good as I could hope for on a year with multiple distractions?

Either way, I’m gonna hit 50,000 words in 30 days, which is a serious accomplishment. Even if it’s not 50,000 words on ONE project.
