At the moment, I feel sick but there are some hopeful job things happening in the near future. I'm trying to put myself out there in terms of ALA and I'm happy with my Yuletide. I think this year I might write a Treat for the first time.

What I finished reading

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell. I love Rowell's books and Carry On was fantastic as she really understands what it is about the Chosen One stories and fantasy that draw people in and how to turn it all on its head. This is a book about two boys who take control of their story even though the story isn't encouraging them to and their friends who are along with them. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, but wishes for more.

What I'm currently reading

The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan. I always enjoy Riordan's books and this one isn't disappointing, he's got a great ear for dialogue, action and how kids behave. I appreciate that he's gotten much better about putting diversity into his casts and understanding that diversity covers a wide range from being homeless to being Deaf.

The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo. At this point, I'm not terribly far into this book and I'm not completely sure how I feel about it. I enjoy the setting and the main character has a good voice but so far, she seems fairly passive. I'm hoping more will happen as so far, there's not much of a conflict or romance, but I like the author's style.

What I'm reading next

One of the books I'm reading next is for Yuletide so I'm not going to list it but I'm looking forward to it. I love writing for other people and how Yuletide always ends up stretching my sense of what I think I can write. I also have the newest Jonathan Stroud Lockwood and Company book to read, which should be fun and creepy. The Rehoboth Film Festival is coming up next week, so far this year I'm not seeing a huge amount of films, I know there will be one or two that really stick with me. Now I think its time for more tea.
