What's Up Wednesday

Welcome to What's Up Wednesday, a weekly meme run by Erin L Funk and Jaime Morrow. Here's what I've been up to this past week!

What I'm reading

I read Hexed by Michelle Krys, which is a fabulous new YA about witches and sorcerers. I also read Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, a wonderfully atmospheric YA gothic mystery. Next, I'm reading The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima, which I've heard good things about! I've been stocking up my Kindle ready for my holiday next week! ^_^

What I'm writing

My post-apocalyptic sequel. :) I cheated a bit with Camp NaNo, as I'm including 2000 words written on a different project in the total (40K), but they were written this month. Considering I spent a week unable to function on a human level (yay flu!), I'm pretty pleased with it!

What inspires me

 Sun and spring and birds singing and my holiday to Majorca on Saturday (even though I still have so many things to sort out before I leave - eek!).

What else I've been up to


Enjoying the lovely weather! ^_^ I went to visit my boyfriend for a few days, and for once, we actually had nice weather! (Usually we end up marathoning Studio Ghibli films and sheltering from the rain. :P) So we  enjoyed driving around the pretty Lancashire countryside and going on walks! :D

  3. Such pretty photos. I'd love to wander the Lancashire countryside. :-)
    You're doing awesome with Camp NaNo, Emma! I'd love to get back to hammering out that many words. Soon, I hope.
    I took BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA out of the library some months back and didn't get around to reading it. I'll have to make sure I do that sometime this summer. Hope you're having a great week!

    1. Lancashire's one of the prettiest parts of England. :) (Though I may be biased since I lived there for 3 years!)

  4. I've heard great things about Cinda Williams Chima but have never picked up one of her books yet. I'll have to add them to my TBR.

    1. It's taken me a while to get round to reading her books, but I'm really enjoying The Demon King!

    HEXED sounds cool, I may have to add the series to my TBR-list.

    Enjoy your holiday!

  6. Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea is on my TBR list. I've heard good things about it and hope I can get around to reading it sometime this century! Those photos of the countryside are lovely! I'm glad you guys could enjoy the nice weather together for a change! Speaking of which, have a wonderful vacation in Majorca! :)

  7. Beautiful photos! I think we've been having your weather. It's been rain, rain, raining here for a week. :( Sorry you were down and out with the flu - yuck! But at least you got it out of the way before your trip. Have a great time in Majorca!

  8. Oh my gosh, how did you get Hexed! Is it out where you are already? Amazon says it's not out until June over here. So lucky. Anywho, pretty pictures! Have fun in Majorca!

  9. I just read the DEMON KING series and loved it. It's so, so good! It was so satisfying, each book, but I felt they got better as the series went on. The characters are fantastic.
