The Sunday Salon (22)
Actually, nothing too terribly interesting has happened. I've had a pretty boring weekend actually, consisting of blogging and reading, since the love of my life is MIA.
However, as hard as I might try, things may take a downturn in October, because for whatever reason, I have a lot of things due this month for school.
October! I can't believe its here already. A little over 2 months until I graduate, then I'll be looking for my first big girl job. Its a scary thing. Sorry, my mind is all over the place this morning!
For reading, I finished I think 3 books this week. I finished A Spy at Home by Joseph Rinaldo, I finished Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and I finished Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. I really had no intention of finishing Gone With the Wind, since I'm reading it as a readalong, but I could not make myself put it down! I loved it. Could possibly be my favorite book of the year (so far!)
On blogging, I think that I've finally found balance between my blog and other things in my life. I really struggled through my spring semester with that balance and it shows through the lack of posts here. But I think I've finally got it down, which is awesome, because this is something that I really love doing and I love that I can do it without stressing out.
On a side note, I participated in the #yalitchat this past week on twitter. It was pretty fantastic. I spent far longer than I should have on it, but it was great, I learned a lot of new things about authors and bloggers and met some pretty fantastic people on both sides! I absolutely love the book blogging community, they are all so awesome!
Oh, and speaking of it being October:
Are you a book blogger? Do you LOVE horror? Then I want you to come do a guest post on my blog sometime this month about it!
Yes, I'm looking for other bloggers for guest posts on horror/mystery/suspense and such and why they love it, what thir favorites are and that sort of thing. If you're interested, comment or shoot me an email firstname.lastname@example.org! Help me spread the word! I'll be doing a post about it this week as well!
So, that's all I have for the Salon today! I have some assignments to finish up that are due tomorrow, but I'll be making the rounds and commenting in just a bit! <3
