The Weekly Recap: Let's Talk About Comments (Week of 10/30/16)

Happy Sunday! I'm linking up to The Sunday Post, hosted by The Caffienated Book Reviewer; Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews; and Book Photo Sundays, hosted by Rabbit Ears Book Blog.

We need to talk. I last minuet joined NaNoWriMo, and it's taking up most of my free time. So, this month I'm trying to write a 50,000 word novel, do school, read, blog, and respond and visit blogs. That's a lot! So, I'm telling you all right now that I'm not going to be as proactive about my comments this month. I will be responding and everything, but it might take me longer to respond than usual. But keep in mind, I'm writing a fucking book!

Other than that, life has been busy! I haven't had a lot of time to read, so tonight I'm going to take a couple hours to just read, and I'm really excited! Have a fabulous week everyone!

Are you trying NaNoWriMo? And if you are, how is it going? How are you balancing everything? Let me know in the comments!


  1. Good luck with NaNo! I kinda wish I was doing it this year but time- wise it just wasn't going to happen. I hope everyone hits their 50k though! And hope you like Summer Days and Summer Nights-I liked some of the stories and others not so much, but that's about typical for me with an anthology. :)

    1. Ya, I haven't had a lot of time to read because of NaNo, so I'm hoping to have some time to finish it soon!

  2. Say Her Name looks creeptastic! Good luck with NaNo. I have the winterbook like Summer Days, hope this one is good too!

  3. Good luck with Nano. It can be a lot of fun. Hope you have some great reading time tonight. I hope to have some this afternoon. :)

  4. I keep hearing about Nano, but I've never joined the challenge before. Good luck on it!

    Here’s my Sunday Post!

    Ronyell @ Rabbit Ears Book Blog and join in this week’s Book Photo Sundays!

  5. Good luck with NaNo! I'm using it to help me advance with my MA thesis :D
    Your new books look great, and I hope you'll enjoy them, Anna.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading and writing;)

  6. I always love your book photos. I have not ever joined NaNo because I am from the school of thinking that you should never force yourself to write. I like seeing everyone else's progress, but I see more people getting frustrated and mad at themselves than being inspired, so my opiniion on NaNo as a whole is not very high. Ha ha. Good luck and have a fantastic week. :)

    1. Thanks! I'm not really using NaNo trying to write 50,000 words in a month. I'm using it more as a way to motivate me to write everyday. Whether it be five words, or 7,000.

  7. Good luck with NaNo! I hope you manage to find the time and motivation to write amongst life in general. :)

    I love the look of the cover for Rain - so much so that I am checking it out on GR - but HOW MANY PAGES IS IT???? Eep, I'm not sure I have the time to add nearly a 1400 page book to my TBR right now. I think I'll wait to see your review! :)

    Have a great week!

    1. I don't think that it's 1400 pages! It says that it's only 359 pages on Amazon, so that's the one I would use. Goodreads page counts can get wacky, but Amazon's page counts are usually accurate. Hope you enjoy it! :)

  8. Fingers crossed with the NaNo - and I think using it as a spur to motivate yourself than trying to kill yourself with that 50,000 target is a far smarter objective. Hope you have a great writing and reading week!

  9. Good luck with that novel!! And yeah, sometimes you have to prioritize - there's just not enough hours in the day to get everything done!
