What I’m Reading
I’ve spent most of my free time reading lately. Since my last WUW post a few weeks ago, I’ve read 8 books and 3 novellas. My favorites within that list are THE 5TH WAVE by Rick Yancey, the rest of
|Some of the books I've bought since coming home|
Right now I’m reading DOROTHY MUST DIE by Danielle Paige. I just reviewed the prequel novella, NO PLACE LIKE OZ, which I really enjoyed.
What I’m WritingAbsolutely nothing. I’ve taken a break since finishing the semester just to let my brain recharge. During my time in Belize, though, I’ll be journaling daily. We each have to write 18-20 pages of travel essays once we get back, so soon I’ll be busy with that.
What Inspires Me Right NowI’ve really enjoyed all the books I’ve read recently, so I guess they’re inspiring me. They motivate me to read more and more of them, that’s for sure! Within 48 hours of arriving home, I’d somehow managed to acquire 8 books. Not that I have a problem or anything…
What Else Is New?
I’ve decided to do a Harry Potter reread this summer! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read the books. I’m currently listening to the Sorcerer’s Stone on audiobook (it’s my companion when I drive from school to home and back) and I caught Deathly Hallows part 2 on ABC Family yesterday. I guess listening to the beginning of Harry’s journey and watching the end of it made me emotional, because now rereading the books is all I can think about. I’m going to take my time with it and still read other books simultaneously, but I’ve missed Harry recently. Time for another trip to Hogwarts!
I have now seen Divergent twice! I think I enjoyed myself more the second time because I spent the entire first time stressed, just waiting for them to completely ruin something in the story. But I don’t think they did. Sure, there are a few things they changed that I wished they hadn’t, but overall I had so much fun watching the movie. Aaaaand I want to reread the book too! (Even though I just reread it in the fall, pre-Allegiant.)
Most of my time right now is being spent getting everything together for my Belize trip. We aren’t allowed to check a bag (it will slow the group down, plus we won’t have much room on the buses) so I need to squash everything into a carry-on. Wish me luck! I’ve scheduled some posts over the next two weeks, but this will be my last post until I get back. I’ll be sure to post pictures once I’m home!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
