vik - small things 2Week 10 here at Celebrate the Small Things! If you are new to this blog hop, all you have to do is sign up on the linky below if you want to join! If you already have, then go around to each blog that signed up and congratulate or just say YAY to everyone and their accomplishments for this week! (Full instructions at our host Vikki’s post here!)

What I am super thankful for this week is other awesome writers and the awesome books they put out. This past week, I believe I read my new favorite book of all time. I know, a big deal right?? I couldn’t put it down, I was sad when it was over, and I started reading it again right away. It was that good. I also think I liked it so much because it’s exactly the kind of book that I want my story to be like – lyrical, powerful, insightful, honest, heartbreaking, hopeful. Every feely word you can think of, it was. Oh, you want to know the book I read? Of course I will tell you!! The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. AH-MAZE-ING. Seriously, stop whatever you are doing right now and read it. I’ll wait….

On top of reading such an amazing book, it also got me motivated to get back into the groove of writing mine. I have kind of gone on a hiatus since my Lit class because I needed some time to just unwind. But I think I will be back at my writing again full force this weekend.

Another random small thing that happened this week is that my younger sister asked me to help her with her art project. I forgot how much I miss doing art and I got engrossed on helping her shade her black and white pencil drawing. When I held it up and she exclaimed, “Wow, it looks so much better!” I got all the happy feels 🙂

What did you celebrate this week? Let me know in the comments or join the hop and I will find out on your blog!

  1. Breaks are nice and not only that, they are needed. I took one too, and have recently pulled my ink out of the draw I hid it in, so I wouldn’t be tempted to ignore my break:)

  2. Hello J.A.! I’m new to your blog, having just hopped over here from the linky list on VikLit’s site, but I’m already loving it! I totally understand what you mean about reading great works- I’ve been busy all day with the amazing shorts for #FridayFlash and i’m so grateful to know so many amazing writers. Lovely to meet you, and hope to see you around the blogosphere!

    Love, Bev

  3. Yay for awesome books! I love that feeling when I get totally engrossed and don’t want to leave the fiction world. It’s reading bliss.

    And very cool that your sister turns to you for help with art. That’s a nice way to unwind and spend some quality family time.
