Excerpt from The BFG

Excerpt from The BFG

I've finished a few books in the past week, including one by a favourite author of mine, Mary Higgins Clark, but the one I had to highlight was Roald Dahl's The BFG. BFG, for those of you who don't know, stands for Big Friendly Giant. It has grown in popularity since being made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. This is such a fun read, filled with lots of scrumdiddlyumptious words!  ...

Stacks of Books! #books #amreading

If you are looking for more books for your TBR pile, you are in the right place! Here are books that grabbed my attention this week. These are not generally books that I have already read, though a few of them might be. They are books that I have seen and added to my TBR list, looked up on Amazon, loved the cover of, etc. Just a quick run-through of what caught my eye, so you can have a look too.

If you want to know what I've been doing for the past week, take a look at my NaNoWriMo counter on the sidebar! I am up to 50,000 on my new book (tentatively "Stalked by the Past"). While technically a NaNo 'win', this is the halfway mark to my personal goal, the approximate midpoint of the book. I wasn't sure I would be able to hit it yesterday, but a combination of circumstances meant I got in a couple more hours of writing than I normally would.

All Young Adult Literature is _____________

All Young Adult Literature is _____________

There has been a lot of furor on the internet over the last few months about young adult (teen) literature, and in particular adults reading young adult books. If you google it, you'll find lots of blog opinions on whether adults should be ashamed of themselves for reading young adult literature, or if it okay to read young adult literature, or if it is okay some of the time, but you should pick up more serious or 'literary' books now and then.
