Here are a few of my favorite finds this week:
art: This ANNE OF GREEN GABLES wedding photo shoot (found via Genn Albin)
purchase: Crannyberry tea (it has cranberries + raspberries + black tea and it smells so amazing!)
reading: BLACK CITY by Elizabeth Richards (which I am loving – the dystopian world-building here is fascinating, and the forbidden romance is so swoony!). Also, you should totally check out the gorgeous cover reveal for the sequel, PHOENIX, which I am going to be begging Editor Ari for asap!
books out this week that I most want to buy: SEND ME A SIGN by Tiffany Schmidt and STEALING PARKER by Miranda Kenneally – I loved both of them! (Tiffany & Miranda are friends of mine, but I wouldn’t say this if it weren’t true, promise!)
watching: HART OF DIXIE is back! Yay!
also watching: Last night we went to the NEA Heritage Concert, which is an amazing annual celebration of the American folk and traditional arts. Last night they honored a dobro player, a klezmer clarinetist, a basketweaver, and a shipwright, among others! If you’re in DC, I highly suggest keeping an eye out for this event next fall! It’s so wonderful to be reminded of what a melting pot of cultures this country is.
working on: taking a break. STAR CURSED went to copyedits today! Guys, I worked my ass off on this book. Writing my first book under deadline and my first middle book in a trilogy was hard; it challenged me about twelve times more than anything I’d ever written before. There were parts where I doubted whether I’d ever love it. But I do. I am so proud of it. I can’t wait (in, um, a slightly vomity nervous way) for you all to read it. And there’ll be a cover to show off soon, I hear!
contemplating: a lot of stuff about mindfulness and meditation as I try to get a handle on this upswing of anxiety.
looking forward to: taking a walk and then having a glass or two of wine tonight!
What about you?
P.S. Sorry the font keeps changing! I don’t know how to fix it, gah.
