Happy S a t u r d a y❗️
Have you read the Fifth Wave? Do you read sci-fi? Do you have any sci-fi books you really like? (Yes I'm looking for recs because I hardly read sci-fi and I'm looking to change that) I've owned this book for many years and I still haven't read it 🙈 but I mean, it has aesthetic pages (they're sO photogenic) of the night sky with stars so I'll probably be changing that soon ;)

I have nothing else to say today besides ITS HOT OUTSIDE 🤦🏽‍♀️ so I hope y'all all have an amazing day and don't go outside because you will probably die from heatstroke and that was just a friendly warning 😂

Just look at how this looks like something out of the novel! I could totally imagine a scene here when soldiers camp by the river and then the enemy ambushing them. What do you guys think could've happened here if it was in a book? Also you can see the glacier mountains at the back which are simply amazing. 11% of #Iceland is covered by these badboys and they are receding at a devastating rate per year. Also, LOOK, BIRD.

What's your top emoji?
Mine is this ---> 😂 Which can only mean I'm too happy and I need to lock it up. How dare I squander my own sarcasm by using that. 🖤 This is more accurate. 😈 This is a normal Monday. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And this is about 90% of my everyday life. See? Way more factual.

1. Hook coffee to my veins, for I can't function otherwise.
2. I love the sound of a leaf blower early in the morning. It's like music to my ears.
3. Flat hair, don't care.
4. Sure, take the last piece of cake. I won't try to bite you.
5. I love infomercials, all the actors are so mellow.
6. Books are just useless words, scrawled upon useless pages.
7. You should listen to that person, without doing any research for yourself.
8. I would love to come out of my hole and socialize. Sounds delightful.
9. I love how you pointed out how short I am. I didn't notice.
10. Talk radio is my favourite of all stations. It doesn't make me want to poke my eyes out. Not at all.

I'm off to see Phantom of the Opera in about an hour! 🎭 It's my first time seeing it, so I'm stoked. What are you up to today?

I spy with my little eye...-
so many books I want to read.
Also, Monday is just better with books in close proximity.
Read any good books lately?
I'd love to hear.

“Ars longa, vita brevis." (Art is long, life is short.) ••
Yesterday at the grocery store a woman in line in front of me bought out a clearance rack of Barbie dolls for the local children's hospital. I know this because the cashier turned to her young daughter and told her how lucky she was. "They're for the sick kids," she said before her mother went into more detail. Thing is, the cashier was right, that little girl is lucky. What a gift her mother is giving her and in many ways me, too. A reminder this world is a beautiful place. Pretty cool for a thriller writer who spends her time writing about people with the opposite intent. ••
Speaking of which, four added scenes are up on the blog this month. Link in bio.

i've been experimenting more with photography lately. . . & fairy lights are quickly becoming my favorite props! i still have a lot to learn about lighting though lol. 😊✨

"It's strange indeed how memories can lie dormant in a man's mind for so many years. Yet those memories can be awakened and brought forth fresh and new, just by something you've seen, or something you've heard, or the sight of an old familiar face." Wilson Rawls, Where the Red Fern Grows -
📓📓
My twins (now former) teacher sent them [individual, that part is important 🙃] postcards from Hawaii. She wrote personal notes—things like 'wish you were here' and 'make sure you come and see me next year.' I'd be willing to bet the greatest lesson she taught my children had little to do with reading or math or standardized testing. I'm pretty sure it was about going the extra mile. -
📖📖
My grandmother (who raised me) was the epitome of this sentiment. I've been thinking about her a lot lately—about all the little things you come to appreciate. Like—how she'd call just to warn me about the weather. [It's going to rain today, she'd say. So, you know, maybe just stay home. 😂] Lots of people think it's about doing big things, the grand gestures that matter. I've realized it's the "little" stuff that makes all the difference. When I used to teach, I would ask business owners if they knew what their AVP (added value proposition) was and more often than not, they had no idea. I guess my point is, as it turns out, the extra mile isn't that crowded a place. And it's really, really beautiful there.

I finished When Dimple Met Rishi and I'm sad to report, that me and that book did not see eye to eye. I'll post a mini review on it tomorrow, but for those who loved that book, maybe don't read this review. 😂
Have you ever had a book that everyone loved, but did nothing for you? ✨
It worked last time, so I thought I'd ask you guys again, what you think I should read next.
1. Crooked Kingdom
2. Our Dark Duet
3. Three Dark Crowns
I also want to tackle Lord of Shadows, but I feel like I'm not ready for that beast of a book just yet.
I need something that I can finish by next weekend, because we're going out of town.

Happy Friday!
Have any fun weekend plans?

It's always the simple things that get you, isn't it?
✨✨
Off to sling some words on a page. They've been slow(er) coming lately. I blame these endless summer days. But there's a time and a season for everything, even a song about it. And, in any case, it'll be back to serious business soon enough.

Happy T h u r s d a y❕
Have you read Lord of Shadows yet? Do you like The Dark Artifices more, or The Infernal Devices? To be honest, I'll probably always like TID better because of Will, obviously, but Lord of Shadows was actually surprisingly good and I can't wait for the third book to come out. Her writing just keeps getting better and better--Lady Midnight was a 5 star read and for Lord of Shadows, I need a bigger scale because stars can't do that book justice ✨

Also, I didn't really ship Julian and Emma at all before but now I'm just like 🤷🏽‍♀️ BECAUSE THINGS WENT DOWN AT CORNWALL AND NOBODY WAS PREPARED 😂

Life is on a role apparently. I've read 3 books since last week, went to my first kickboxing session, and the Hubs and I had an impromptu date night last night. Everything's coming up Milhouse! (If you don't get that reference, we may not be able to be friends anymore, I'll weigh the options later). I didn't pass out, or throw up at my first kickboxing session, so clearly I count that as a win! I may still be dead by the end of the week, I haven't ruled it out yet.

What's your current read? Are you liking it? I'm reading When Dimple Met Rishi and I'm not sure how I feel about it yet. 😬🙈

Ran 10 miles, cleaned the house,
and baked homeade bread.
Just kidding.
I've hardly moved from my best plotting spot.
What imaginary things are you getting up to today?
