Okay so Halloween is out of they way and everyone is getting back into the swing of things. As for myself, I've been very busy. Along with getting ready for Halloween this past weekend I've gotten a good 2 hours worth of writing on my WIP. Yeah! Yes that is big for me.
I have also been doing a lot of reading, not critiques, or ssynopsis for Stand Out Synopsis, (although I wish I was), no, I've been reading for me. I'm the type of person who HAS to have a book. As soon as I get close to the end of one I'm at the book store hunting down another. Funny thing is I write YA, but I haven't read a lot of YA books. I know, shame on me. A few weeks ago I decided to change that so the last time I picked a book I decided it had to be YA. Well I've found one and I loved it. The book is Fallen by Lauren Kate. I'm almost finished with it so I went to the book store Sunday to pick up the next book Passion in the series only I had to order it (Boohoo). So instead I pick up Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright (You know the one- It's a major motion picture now), I also picked up The Summer Garden by Paulina Simons. I have read The Bronze Horseman and Alex & Tatitina and have been waiting almost a year for this last book to hit the US.
So now I'm in a dilemma. While I wait for Passion to come in from the book store, which book do I start?
Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright or The Summer Garden by Paulina Simons which is really long? Help me decide Which book would you pick up to read first? And have you read Fallen by Lauren Kate? What did you think?
