Woot! First post on my new personal blog! I felt like starting off with some cool things I'm excited about that all happened yesterday.
One of my husband's older brothers had a birthday, he's now 31.
Amanda Hocking's newest novel, Wake, the first book in her Watersong series, came out! It looks like an awesome book and the trailer for it is amazing! I want to read it so bad, but I have to wait for it to come out in paperback. She's currently doing a book tour with her friend Eric Goldman and has some cool giveaways on her blog. Go check it out.
I wish I could drive the 6+ hours to Dallas, TX on the 16th to meet them, but alas I'm pretty well broke. Not to mention, I'm so shy it's painful. There have been times I've spent hours deliberating whether or not to send the response to a post :P I'm getting better, at least half the time I do send it.
If you're a fan of Amanda's books like I am, check out the event page on her blog to see if she's touring in a place near you. If so, I envy you.
The Lorax came out too and my husband brought home a copy. It was very cute, but I think it could have been better somehow. I just can't put my finger on what was missing...
In other thoughts, have you heard of the Mars landing by the US Curiosity rover on the sixth? It makes me wonder what we'll do next. When will people start making trips to other planets? I wouldn't want to, because I have an intense fear of heights and a strong aversion to not having air to breathe should something go wrong, but I think the possibilities are fascinating.
Anyway, I'm going to put up a separate post in response to someone else's blog post, then I'm going back to work!
