Updates: Projects In-Progress
Kel Wednesday, January 14, 2015First, I got this completely awesome library book yesterday! Can you not feel the AWESOME? But yeah, I've been looking for a new crochet project to
Meanwhile, I'm still clawing my way through the law school application process, which (frustratingly) jumps back and forth between at least two different systems. I have a sneaking suspicion this is like a second LSAT, weeding out the unworthy. >.>
I'm still working on a new blog design. I found something simple I think I can live with, but it will require a custom header image...which I need to find time (and download a program) to do. :P
Also, I don't think any of them will fit the theme and feel I'm going for, but I really wish I could use some of these cute stickers from Pixlr Express.
I decided to try a reverse of last year and start off with a few graphic novels. They give me a nice, quick jump on my Goodreads Challenge and I'm investigating a section of the library I haven't really used before. Win-win. And I read the third Kate Daniels book, but now I'm in trouble. That was the last one my library had and I'm kind of in the middle of a book-buying ban. On the bright side, this might actually force me to read some of the pretties still sitting on my shelf, like Midnight Thief and Vicious. I really want to read them early this year.
I made a little more progress in Illusionarium and I really hope it picks up soon. I'm not sure if it's that the author is trying to write in first person from a guy's perspective or what; but it feels like there's too much detail on the little things, not enough of the big picture, and the pace is dragging. I'm not far into it, but right now I'm a little bored. :( Steelheart hasn't grabbed me in that "oh my gosh, I must finish NOW" way, but it's a great premise, pretty solid writing and enjoyable enough. I'm hoping to finish it before Sanderson's signing later this month.
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my mini-review of Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay! In which sleeping beauty's daughter battles trolls, a ladies man of a prince and the trials of cross-dressing.
