Hello Monday!! I didn't have a good title to add, hence the goofiness up top. What was I up to this week?
1. I got all the way through my manuscript adding changes to my villainess and a few other various things, so that's round one of revisions done!!
2. I started round two which I'm calling The Mother Mission - basically it involves bringing my main character's mother more to life and revising the plot arc in the story involving her. This may take me a while as it's a pretty big plot arc, but I have a good feeling that it'll make the story stronger.
3. Read two books - The Lookingglass Wars by Frank Beddor and The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty. Look for reviews (and maybe a surprise) soon.
Well, that's about it for this week. May not seem like much but actually I feel like it's progressing along quite well. Also, I'm putting in a little plug for Vee's awesome 100 followers contest, cuz you know I like to get extra entries and all. She's offering up a book and a 50 page critique!! She's a newly agented author so I think both prizes are highly valuable - be sure to take a look at her blog.
Now for my question of the week - I've been reading many many reviews lately, and I feel bombarded with all the great choices out there, so I'd like to hear your opinion. If you were to recommend any one YA book to someone, published within the last two years, which would it be?
