I was nominated for this award ages ago by Sydney over at Sydney’s Shelves. I am super excited to do this tag, especially because it is easy and I am currently in the grip of nanowrimo!!
The top ten tuesday topic for this week is books you want your future kids to read. This is an amazing topic, the only problem is that there are way more than ten?? Even if I don’t have kids of my own these are the books I will need nieces / nephews / friend’s kids to read.
We’re 1/3 of the way through Nanowrimo!! My motivation is kind of dipping. I haven’t written anything for the past two days because I’ve been busy and distracted and a bit sick. But I’m going to do heaps of writing over the weekend so you don’t need to worry about me.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This is a really interesting topic because it says you can pick what you think they would be a good leader of, it can be anything from a country to a bookclub.
I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of This Mortal Coil by Emily Suvada who happens to be an Australian author!!! This is her debut novel and it’s a sci-fi / kind of apocalyptic novel about genes manipulation and a really cool virus. But we’ll get into that a bit more in a second.
October has gone past crazily fast, and I’ve done a lot less reading than I planned. Now it’s time to look back on the craziness and see what’s been going on. Also can I just say that I love writing wrap ups? They help me realise how quickly time is passing.
Nanowrimo is just around the corner (only a couple more days to go!) and it’s made me reflect on my experiences last year in nanowrimo. I thought I’d pass on some tips I learnt from participating in my first nanowrimo, you probably know a few of them already but it can’t hurt to have them reinforced.
