(It's hump day!)
What I'm Reading
I did a speed read of Colony to put the finishing touches on it before querying. If you ask me, it's a pretty amazing book :P
Then I read Retribution Falls and was not a fan. Just couldn't connect to the story. Shame. I've enjoyed Chris Wooding's books in the past, especially The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray which was one of the first alternate history books I ever read.
I returned to the Jack Reacher series because I knew I'd get a good, solid thriller for my money. I also get to boast that I successfully cracked the case about 300 pages before the characters, mostly because I've watched so many episodes of Criminal Minds. Go Team Cole XD
Now I'm reading a book called Pines by Blake Crouch. Hooray for the Kindle Lending Library!
What I'm Writing
So, with Colony querying (EEEEEEEEEEEEE!), I did the only sensible thing....
I started writing a new book! Aaaand that's all I'm saying :P Don't wanna scare it off.
What Else I'm Up To
Work. Check back next week :p
What Inspires Me
Even though I haven't had a chance to watch a lot of it, the Winter Olympics. Watching skiing and skating has made me want to set a story in the middle of an extremely cold winter... which is precisely the opposite of the blustery, watery one we're having in the UK.
And, okay, I warned y'all last week I had trouble picking just one, but OMG HAVE YOU LISTENED TO THIS SOUNDTRACK?! HAVE YOU!?!?!?!
I really enjoy the film, but ooooh my goooooosh the soundtrack is scrambling its way up my top five list. Only time will tell if it'll topple my all time favourite...
