Updates: Books, Crafts and Taxes
Kel Wednesday, March 11, 2015My taxes and FAFSA are officially done! Woohoo! I also got some housework out of the way, which is good because I start a dogsitting gig this Friday. Wish me luck. I also have an intro day at the law school coming up, after which I'll hopefully have a better idea of what I launched myself into. ;)
I crocheted my first hat! You can find more photos and specifics on this week's Art It Up post.
We're back on track with the Goodreads Challenge! For now. >.> The Fog Diver is a fun middle grade adventure with airships and air pirates. Need I say more? Powerless could have been interesting, but it had some serious worldbuilding issues for me. Uprooted could appeal to both adult and YA readers. (There's only one and a half "adult" scenes, plus a bit of war.) It has a fairy tale feel to it and, though the story drew me along, I failed to be overly invested in the protagonist.
I just started Siren's Fury last night, and I'm only about 20 pages in, so no thoughts yet. Rebel Mechanics and Hold Me Like a Breath are next on the list. :) And then we'll try to finish out Illusionarium. And if that doesn't work, I can return to the books I should have read a year ago but didn't. :P
