But now, onto WUW!
What I’m ReadingI bought the HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE audiobook and listened to it on my past few drives home and back to Pittsburgh, and it set me off on a big HP reread. I just finished rereading THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS last night. Each time I reread those books, I pick up on new things and marvel even more at J.K.’s brilliance. I also read DOROTHY MUST DIE by Danielle Paige before my Belize trip, so I’ll be posting a review soon.
I’m currently rereading Kirsten Hubbard’s WANDERLOVE (come on, it takes place in Guatemala and Belize…I’ve gotta reread it!) and THRONE OF GLASS by Sarah J. Maas. I started THRONE OF GLASS before my trip, and I’m about 75% of the way through it. I normally don’t read a ton of fantasy but I’m starting to get into it, and this book has me hooked!
What I’m WritingAs part of my Belize trip, I have to write travel essays for a grade. They’re due May 30th, so I need to get going! I started one yesterday…wish me luck! This deadline is making me anxious! I haven’t decided if I have any big writing plans for the summer yet. Second year MFA students have recommended having a second project to work on along with your thesis so you don’t go insane, so maybe I’ll start something over the summer and carry on throughout the upcoming school year. Or I could continue with my project from last summer. I really don’t know yet!
What Inspires Me Right NowThe memories and photos from my trip! I’ll go into more detail in future travel posts, but I found so many things to write about in those two weeks. I’ll probably be writing about Belize and Guatemala for the next two years!
What Else is New?Just sorting through pictures like these:
Life could be worse!
