So it’s been a little under a month since my last blog post, so I thought today I’d write this quick update post letting you know what’s been going on.
My last blog post was Blog Post #34 – Life is short and hard sometimes, in which I complained about being busier and going back to school. Since then, life has got even busier, so that’s great. Hooray for tests, amirite?
Anyway, even though it’s been a month since my last blog, it’s not like nothing has been happening. We’ve finally been managing to stick to our name and actually post something weekly. There’s been a post entitled “Doumo Arigatou” dedicated to someone important to me, a joint post about two awesome YouTubers, Dan and Phil, and then a collection of Bookstagram Photos which were never posted on Instagram because we moved onto a new theme. If any of them take your fancy, please do check them out! There’s not been much proper writing recently, but before my last blog post Alice posted the first part of a new story on here (the rest of which can be found on wattpad). The last piece of writing before that was a gothic horror short posted a looooong time ago. (oops)
And now for the rambly book update part of the blog post (I’ll try to keep it short). This week, I’ve been reading two books. The first is Generation One by Pittacus Lore, and the second is The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Generation One is a recent instalment in the Lorien Legacies series & collection of books that go along with them. Without giving too much away, it’s about what happens after the war. So far I’m enjoying it, however I’ve been reading it quite slowly, which is normally a sign that I don’t like the book. I guess I’m just finding it a bit hard to get into. I’ll keep reading and let you know my final judgment! The Sky is Everywhere is about a girl called Lennie who likes to play the clarinet and whose sister recently passed away. I picked this book up because the author also wrote one of my absolute favourite books of all time – I’ll Give You The Sun. So far I’m also enjoying this book, and I’m finding this one easier to get into too, although I will say between all those poems littered everywhere Lennie isn’t exactly helping to save the environment!
Sadly that’s all I have for this post today, as I have to go and write yet another essay then revise for yet another test, but there’ll be a new post coming next week and until then, you can always check our Instagram (where we’re most active). Recently we’ve begun using the polls feature on our story to ask what you guys want to see on our site and in or posts so we’re getting more feedback and (hopefully) adapting what we post to your wants! Our username is @writeaweek if you want to look us up 🙂 Thanks for reading
