Week in Review: July 26

missprintweekreviewThis week on the blog you can check out:

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.
