Reading and Writing

Currently basking in the glow of completing another novel, this time an adult urban fantasy, after the young adult I wrote over the summer. I love being in the middle of a novel but I always feel the urge to finish it and know I have a complete project. Now I'm in editing phase, which will take a few weeks, then I'll be stepping into the scary, soul wrenching world of querying again.

I've also revived my reading kick, since I've started reading on the train to and from work, it really is the only time I can read because when I'm home so many other things occupy my time, mainly my novel, but on the train I get about 45mins to read either way so it works out great. So dumb of me not to have taken advantage of that before. I recently finished "Flirt" by Laurell K. Hamilton, and will soon be done with "Immortal Beloved" by Cate Tiernan, which I am enjoying. Since I'm almost done I picked up "Shiver" by Maggie Stiefvater, and I have a list of over 10 books to get to. I'm such a nerd I'm actually going to ask for a few for my birthday, but hey, saves me money. I also realized that Laurell is basically the only author who writes adult novels that I read, otherwise is basically YA that my library consists of. Interesting, but I'm drawn to what I'm drawn to I guess. I want to get into another adult urban fantasy series but I always feel some resistance when I'm browsing them. Don't know why! I'll try to get into it more after my YA cycle.
