On My Shelf highlights books I've acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I'm writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It's Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. ;)
I recently watched both Diary of a Wimpy Kid movies, and loved them, so I had to read the books. I was planning to get them from the library, but my sisters saw these at a thrift store and bought them for me. Thanks guys! I can't wait to read them, the movies were hilarious! They'll also be a nice change of pace from my usual mid-grade books. ^_^
I recently dove back into an old project, and so far I'm loving working on it again. This is a book I started when I was 12 and worked on until I was 16-ish, but haven't touched since then. Let's just call it The One with Dragons. Upon picking it up again, I found out I took really bad notes for it, so as you can imagine it's been a bit difficult to get everything sorted out. I've been working on the characters most of the week (a lot had to be renamed, and I just can't remember who most of them are and don't seem to have any notes to help me figure it out), and I'm nowhere near done. Anyway, this is the reason I haven't been posting much (and by 'much' I obviously mean 'at all'). That, and reading. But don't worry, this week I'll definitely find time to write some posts (and hopefully actually remember to publish them), so the blog should be a little more active next month. I miss blogging, but other things always seem to be getting in the way. Really hope I can fix that soon.
Anyway, that's it for this week. Happy reading!
