I’m late to the party with this, but have you seen The Secret Life of Pets? We watched it for the first time the other night and had some great laughs – they really nailed the behavior of pets. I saw so many aspects of my cat in Chloe. If you’re an animal lover, don’t miss this one!
Was anyone else as disappointed with the Super Bowl commercials as I was?
Do any of you get ARCs to review from Edelweiss? Over the past few years or so, I’ve been fortunate to have received approval to read and review several books and I have a 100% feedback ratio. I currently have eight pending requests dating back to early September – is anyone else having this problem?
Big Announcement Time: Last week I signed a contract with Black Rose Writing to have my second book published! I’m still in the drafting stage, so it probably won’t be released until winter 2017. This one is a YA sci-fi/fantasy with a working title of Gemini Connection and involves twin brothers, dreams, and portals. Updates to follow.
Now on to the TBR. I’m so frustrated because it’s never taken me this long to read a book – especially one as good as A Gathering of Shadows! I’ve also been reading an ARC of Alone by Scott Sigler (if you’re a YA sci-fi/fantasy fan, you really need to be reading this trilogy) and feel like I haven’t been making much progress – real life getting in the way, I guess. According to Goodreads, I’m four books behind schedule for my reading goal this year. In the middle of all this, I also read a fantastic manuscript for a friend that I think any literary agent would love to get their hands on. I’ll let you know when she gets published – and I mean when, not if.
But I finished A Gathering of Shadows – another fantastic, compelling novel by Victoria Schwab, and the final book in the series comes out later this month. I’ve mentioned this in another post, but I’d love to spend a day in Schwab’s head just to see how her mind works.
I added two books – Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth – it had been preordered for a while. I also bought Type and Cross by Staci Troilo, which just won Book of the Year at the Rave Reviews Book Club. Very worthy additions to the TBR pile.
