Five Things for the Fall

1. Ugh, the weather is horrible. I can already feel my winter gloom coming on. On the bright side, however, there are still bits and pieces that remind me of how pretty autumn can really be.


2. Revisions and more revisions! It's busy editing season for me. I'm smack bang in the middle of a round right now - which I realise is a mysterious thing to say when you don't actually know what I'm working on - but I will share details soon, I promise!

3. Downton Abbey. I am so late to the party, but I finally started watching it during a gap between revision rounds and then had to keep watching. Literally caught up to the current series in three days and now I watch them week by week. I think that equates to about eight episodes or so per day during the frenzy. Yep. When I get obsessed, I get obsessed. Anyone else develop obsessions like this?

4. Steampunk. I've always loved it, but I've recently started making stuff (like the necklace below). It started out as something of a whim, but I really like it and it's one of those brilliant things that helps me think about bookish conundrums while I'm doing it.



5. Books! I don't think I could list every book I've read and loved recently, but here are a couple of new releases that I completely recommend: 

Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll
Red Rock by Kate Kelly

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

  3. I like that steampunk piece you put together. Nice :-)

    And I did an obsessive marathon watching of Scandal during one weekend free of my Chipmunk. I just couldn't stop watching until I got to the last episode Netflix had available. So, please know you are not alone with the obsessiveness lol!!

  5. Hi Sangu

  6. Sangu! I read The Lost Girl and it is absolutely incredible. Its left me in tears and I don't really know the emotions I feel right this moment. I can only hope that what you are working on relates to The Lost Girl. I know that I would most definitely read anyway. ThE cliffhanger! Please, that wasn't very nice. I can read this book a thousand times without getting slightly bored! Its all thats been on my mind when I should be focusing on my GCSEs. Anyway, you are an amazing author and I can't wait until you release whatever you are working on!!
