- Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls: A Review
- Winterspell: A Chick Lit Wednesday Review
- Author Interview: Claire Legrand on Winterspell
I’m really, really excited that it was finally time to share my review of Winterspell and my interview with Claire about it here on the blog. This is easily a favorite read of 2015 for me and I had such a blast talking to Claire about her inspiration and process and how Clara is such a badass.
This week was pretty good! The teen volunteers have started at work and I’m really enjoying working with them! I’ve never supervised volunteers before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but they’re great so far. I also got to see many librarian pals I don’t usually see because they are at other branches. Yay.
I continue to think about being brave and about how it is so much easier to be brave and unapologetically honest in letters or emails. Partly it’s because I am pragmatic (pessimistic) enough to assume no one will reply. And then, of course, I am shocked when someone DOES reply (and maybe stare at said reply more than I should). But also it’s just so much easier to put yourself out there when you can do it behind closed doors and from a safe distance.
Tidying has been on hold because I’ve been so busy the past couple weeks. I’m hoping to do some major damage to my books in early August and I need to see what other categories I have left from the KonMari outline. But I am definitely getting there!
Reading this week was a mixed bag but I started Tonight the Streets Are Ours on Friday and I’m enjoying it a lot so far.
How was your week?
