- Author Interview: Jennifer Mathieu on Moxie
Backdating this again–I should probably just set them to post on Mondays instead.
This week I got to go to School Library Journal’s Day of Dialog in Brooklyn which was a lot of fun. I also went to the launch event for Jodi Meadows’ new book Before She Ignites and got my paperbacks of The Orphan Queen and The Mirror King signed. I finally read The Orphan Queen and really liked it . . . but I finished the book on the subway this morning and don’t have The Mirror King with me so my next book is going to be The Empress (not a bad trade off).
I haven’t been very good about my writing goals or taking my MediaBistro courses. But I did clean my desk and list some things for sale on eBay as well as reorganizing my bags/purses and books (shocker: I have too many).
With those things under control I feel like I’ll be more ready to establish other routines moving forward. Monday is a bit too hectic but I’m hoping I can start doing the courses at lunch. Wish me luck!
Here’s my latest from Instagram:
Here's a belated shot of the August @uppercasebox! 📚 I prepaid for three months and this was my last installment. It was a great box to end my subscription. The box included: -Everything All at Once by @katrinalenobooks with a full color tip in sheet with the author's signature. (I have been curious about this book for a while and am thrilled to have a copy.) -Take the leap postit notes -Golden Compass bookmarks with some beautiful artwork -Stainless steel bibliophile cuff bracelet (I have been wearing this a lot) 📚 All in all I've enjoyed my Uppercase experience and recommend it if your looking to try a bookish subscription service but don't want the commitment of monthly payments (just prepay instead). As with anything like this service there were some items that worked better than others (I could have done with 50% fewer cat items and one book wasn't something I would read but a teen volunteer at work loved it). 📚 What's your favorite subscription box? Have you read this book yet? 📚 #bookstagram #goodreads #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #books #bookstagramit #yalit #uppercasebox #everythingallatonce #katrinaleno #goldencompass #thegoldencompass #bibliophile #subscriptionbox #subscriptionaddiction #bookishsubscriptionbox

Have we talked yet about how much I loved Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George (out 9/19 from Greenwillow)? 💗 George's debut is an excellent retelling of Much Ado About Nothing set in 1920s Long Island. The characters are witty, endearing, and smart. The banter is top notch. And there's. It one but three romances, one speakeasy, at least two dramatic car rides, a thoughtfully handled examination of class privilege and did I mention the banter? 💗 You still have a couple of days to preorder this wonderful book. In fact, if you preorder by 9/16 you can submit your proof of preorder for these beautiful character cards, a bookmark, postcard, and signed bookplate. 💗 Full details: http://bit.ly/2u4uGb6 💗 #bookstagram #goodreads #instabook #instareads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #books #bookstagramit #yalit #mckellegeorge #speakeasyspeaklove #retelling #shakespeare
