Downsizing the TBR Pile

Made more progress on my first draft – still not as much as I’d like, but is it ever?  Got a rejection letter, sent out a couple more queries.  Pretty routine, I guess.

Doing some research on dreams for my new WIP and found a fascinating blog post 18459932suggesting the whole plot of Inception (one of my personal favs) was a dream – and gave some pretty convincing evidence.  Guess I’ll have to watch it again with fresh eyes.

As far as the TBR pile, it was a DNF for Angelbound by Christina Bauer – after 50 pages, I still couldn’t get into it and didn’t really care for the MC.

So I started reading The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater and I’m stuffing myself with 17378527chocolate in hopes of finding some consolation at the thought of ending the journey with these addictive characters.  So far, it’s not working.  I’m down to less than 100 pages to go and already thinking about going back and re-reading the other three – if I can find the time.  I can’t recommend this series enough to young adults and adults alike.  Absolutely at the pinnacle (with Harry Potter) of my fav book series.

  1. I know how you feel about the DNF. I’ve been struggling for the past week with The Leaving by Tara Altebrando. I don’t know how I feel about all these different POV’s. I keep hearing BookTuber’s going on about The Raven King and that series–very tempted to pick it up myself. Well done on the zero bought, I know that can be very tough! 🙂


    1. I know some readers don’t care for multiple POVs – my husband especially – but I’ve never minded them. Try to stick with it – really enjoyed the book, and obviously I highly recommend The Raven Boy series!
