Feeling much better this week and hoping I don’t catch the plague that has been making the rounds in my department! I can’t believe it’s already March. We just celebrated the new year, didn’t we?!
I am so behind on reading (like actual deadline things not just my own blogger reading) but I’m hoping I can turn that around in March. I also am going to my darnedest to really get my review backlog down and write some new scenes in my current novel project (got to have something good to submit at Writing Group after all!).
What are you plans for March? What’s one thing you want to knock of your to do list?
Here are two of my favorite posts I shared on Instagram this week:

How far would you go to win? 📚 Jane Sinner is tired of pity. She isn't surprised at her expulsion from high school or her lack of plans for the future. She's just surprised that anyone else is shocked. 📚 When Jane agrees to attend a high school completion program at Elbow River Community College she only has one condition: she gets to move out. Affordable housing appears in the form of a student-run reality show along the lines of Big Brother. Jane jumps at the chance to join the cast of House of Orange, live within her limited means, and compete to win a car (used, but whatever it's still a car). 📚 Stepping away from her conservative, religious parents and forgetting about what happened is exactly what Jane needs to start over. On campus she can reinvent herself as Sinner–the cynical and ultra-competitive version of herself that comes through in House of Orange edits–even if the HOOcaps (House of Orange production team) might be watching Jane's every move and real life is becoming uncomfortably hard to separate from the game. 📚 When House of Orange goes from low-rent web series to a local community tv sensation, Jane is forced to consider how far she's willing to go to win. And how much she has to prove to herself and the world (or viewers of substandard reality tv anyway). 📚 As a die-hard fan of Big Brother (I’ve seen every season!) I absolutely loved this book’s premise. Jane is a shrewd and hilarious narrator and her story had me laughing out loud and wishing I could find House of Orange spoilers online to see how it would all shake out. Do yourself a favor and add this one to your TBR today! 📚 My gloriously orange hardcover is shown here with my two prized trophies from my brief career as a competitive storyteller. 📚 #instabooks #instareads #bookgram #bookworm #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookstagrammer #bibliophile #booklove #bookphotography #instabook #reading #reader #booktography #bookstagram #igreads #booksofinstagram #goodreads #bookaholic #bookish #bookishfeature #bookstafeatures #bookstagramfeature #readersofinstagram #yalit #yabooks #ireadya #nicetryjanesinner #lianneoelke #ludwigfilter

Check out this picture of the moon that I took at sunset yesterday on my way home. I love my phone camera. ▪️ What do you use to take your Instagram photos? I’ve been using my iPhone 7 Plus camera exclusively and continue to be impressed with the quality. ▪️ #ny1pic #newyork #nofilter #newyorkcity #nyc #blueskies #sunset #moonrise #fullmoon #trees #treebranches #branches
