The Weekly Post (September 11-17, 2011)

Best Book: I read a few books this week and my favorite was definitely A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly. I so need to read more historical fiction because whenever I do, I love it. This book, a murder mystery, finding-yourself story set in 1906 was amazing in so many ways. There's absolutely nothing about it I didn't like. I also love Jennifer Donnelly's novel Revolution. She better have a new book out soon :D

Anticipated Book: Is Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes because I just saw the cover for the first time and it's SO COOL. The book sounds awesome and I am so in love with her Raised By Wolves series. If you haven't read it, you must! Every Other Day comes out on December 27th, 2011.

On Writing: I'm writing a lot of poems and working on a short story for creative writing class, I wrote my first paper for AP history this week *gulp*, my first paper for AP English is due next week *more gulping* and I'm going to try and work on the WIP a bit this weekend, and I have a new idea on the back burner that I LOVE, which I wrote a little bit about in my post yesterday.

Favorite Blog Post: I read this one by Tahereh Mafi (her debut novel, Shatter Me, comes out in November - I'm so excited) where she talks about people who want to publish books but don't do their homework, and how people in the online community are awesome, in general ;) It's a really good post, and it definitely made my day a little better.
