So, I’ve come to the conclusion there are way too many awesome bloggers out there… I can’t keep up with you all! This Campaign is seriously full of great writers and bloggers and I find myself working less and less on my WiP… Which means I need to figure out a schedule. I just started getting the hang of the “Precious is in school now” schedule and now I have to get used to “Totally Awesome Campaign Blogs” schedule. I can do it. Just a few tweaks here and there and BAM! Schedule made and kept.
Which brings me to YAHighway. How you ask? Let me explain by first letting them tell you what today is:
“Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway’s contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s unique take on the topic.”
The topic for this week is “What’s the best book you’ve read in August?”
Well, let me tell you… I’ve only read one, and I’m still not done with it.
Characters, Emotion, & Viewpoint by Nancy Kress. Yes, I recently posted about how excited I was to have gotten The Hero With A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell in the mail. And I am SOOO excited to read it! I even have my highlighter picked out. Alas, I haven’t finished the first. I need to take a day (it will actually take less than a day) and finish the first book so I can get to the one I’m so excited about. I’m always excited to learn new things and better my craft, but for some reason Joseph Campbell’s book gives me chills when I pick it up. And from what I’ve heard, it will live up to the expectation.
The reason I haven’t read much this month isn’t only due to scheduling. No, it’s also because this month’s budget just doesn’t allow for many new books. With school registration for Precious and school pictures and school clothes… Next month will be better and I look forward to reading some good books about things other than craft=)
OH! And, Bloodlines by Richelle Mead is out. My awesome sister pre-ordered it and will be letting me borrow it if I don’t have a chance to order it soon myself. That is definitely a book I MUST read!
What about you? What good books did you read this month? Leave a comment and recommend something!
