It’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. Besides working crazy long hours at work, let’s see what I’ve been up to, shall we?
On Sunday I went to the Seahawks game!!! I got tickets from a co-worker. I’ve been to a ton of Mariner games, but I’ve never seen the Seahawks live. My friend and I had a lot of fun and the Seahawks even won!! Here are a few pictures taken from my iPhone from my seat:
I’ve recently joined the gym. Usually I walk or ride my bike on a trail near my house, but it’s dark when I wake up and dark when I get home from work. Yesterday, I met with a personal trainer, who went over a fitness plan for me and showed my how to use the machines without looking like an idiot. Now I’m sore, but it’s the good kind of pain that produces results.
Now here’s what I haven’t been up to:
I haven’t updated my blog lately with any book review, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading! I have a stack of books anxiously waiting to be reviewed. Here’s a little preview, listed in no particular review order:
Stealing Death by Janet Lee Carey
I went to the Launch Party for this book a few months ago, where I picked up an autographed copy of this book.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
This is the debut book by Becca Fitzpatrick. Will it live up to all the hype? Checked out from my local library.
The Bringer of War by Dylan Birtolo
How will this stand alone sequel compare to its predecessor, The Shadow Chaser? Purchased from the author.
The author contacted me from a comment I left on someone else’s review of this book! I never turn down a review copy.
Sanctuary by N.E. Julian
I received a review copy of this book from the author.
Dreamer by Philip L. Davidson
I received a review copy from the author.
I also have not started my novel for NaNoWriMo yet. Yes, I am officially freaking out. I have been thinking (ok, stressing!!) about this since before November 1. I have a 4-day weekend this weekend, so guess what I’m gonna start right after I post this?
In other news, I won a Radiohead CD from Shelley at Layers of Thought!! Yay!! I love free stuff and surprisingly I don’t already own this CD.
If you don’t already, I highly recommend you check out Logan’s Writing Wednesdays on his blog, Rememorandom. Each Wednesday, Logan posts a new segment of his various writing projects. He recently finished Part 1 of a serial story and has moved onto an epic poem that I found very impressive.
