life update

Reading in the park (the book is Dark Places).

It's been a little quiet around here lately, but I think I have a worthy excuse this time. For the past month, my life has been a whirlwind. Not only have I moved across the state (back to my college town), but I'm now living with my wonderful boyfriend, starting to feel more like a true adult, and (most importantly) working my first full-time job. I don't want to go into too many details, but I will say that my new job title includes the word writer (a fact that makes me very, very happy). It's been an amazing, stressful, exciting transition that unfortunately leaves me much less time for reading, writing, and blogging. However, I'm trying to catch up on my reading (I'm 2 books behind on my yearly goal according to Goodreads) and I really want to get back into blogging.

My boyfriend (he's reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy).

That's all for now. Just wanted to give a quick update. :-)

And while I'm here, I have to ask:

What are you reading? What have been your favorite summer reads so far? I just finished Dark Places, which I loved (review coming soon!), and started Swamplandia! this morning. Despite its mixed reviews, I'm hopeful!

  1. Ahh! You can't dangle that job title in front of us! Congrats on it including "writer." I hope at some point we get to find out what it is!

    1. Oh it's not half so exciting as it sounds, I promise! Since you asked, it's a marketing position. But I'm thrilled to be able to call myself a writer. Not that I wasn't before (because everyone who dedicates time to writing is a writer), but it seems more true and professional now! :-)
