Wednesday Goals~The End

I've changed the title of my Wednesday posts so the focus is no longer just on writing, but encompasses reading as well. It felt like I wasn't giving reading the attention it deserves. After all, it's vital for us writers to read. 

#WriteGoal: Complete the stage of editing that I was in on my current work in progress, and I achieved it! *throws confetti* However, that leads right into the next stage of the editing project. *sigh* Such is writing, oh well. 

#ReadGoal I finished reading Tears of the Broken by A.M. Hudson and I really liked it. It is a very different type of book from those I normally read and the change was refreshing. There wasn't the usual action-packed chapters that I'm used to which keep you on your toes. But that's okay, there was something equally as wonderful. There was a sweet romance that simmered throughout the entire book, deepening like a good cup of tea as it went along. Though it's a YA paranormal, it reads like a contemporary romance and I've got to tell you, the mix of the genres was quite good. The character building and handling of back story in this novel was fantastic. I'd recommend this for anyone who enjoys a novel that builds slowly and loves characters that get their hooks into you.

    Still struggling finding time to write with my day job but I feel progress when I find time to get it in and also read too.

    1. It may be a great novel for you Linda! As long as you don't mind YA and a taste of the paranormal. The nice part though, for non-paranormal readers, is that the element is light.

  6. Oooh, Tears of the Broken sounds like something I might like! Right now I'm reading Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, and I'm falling in love with this character. Funny thing is, he's a crotchety old man :)

    Congratulations on reaching your goals. That's awesome!
