Revision: Step Three

Reading Week has come to an end. In seven days I read, finished, or started:

*Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes (last 200 pages)
*Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton (last 260 pages)
*What Jane Austen Ate and Charles Dickens Knew: From Fox Hunting to Whist-- the Details of Life in 19th-Century England by Daniel Pool
*Monstress by Marjorie Liu and Sano Takeda (graphic novel)
*Saga Vol. 6 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples (graphic novel)
*The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson
*Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
*The Winter People by Joseph Bruchac (first 40 pages)
*The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson (first 130 pages)

Now it's onto the next step, which is to finish the exercises I starred in 21st Century Fiction by Donald Maass. I've only allotted one day for this step, since I did a bunch of them back when my laptop was in the shop.


  1. Jesus, I'm not writing a book and that's more than I read last month. Yowza!

    Can't wait to read a draft! Also, I'm reading a book called Unmentionable, which is about personal grooming during the Victorian age. It's an advance copy, and it's a ton of fun; check it out!

  2. This would not have been possible were early October not a dead time for my job (which I do from home on an as-needed basis). I think I seriously worked 5 hours last week. And then we had a gray, cold weekend and I just read all day and pretended my husband and son weren't playing video games for enough hours to make a pediatrician frown at me.
