#FinallyFriday Weekly Roundup

Hi everyone! #FinallyFriday is a new meme I’ve decided to host. Let’s take this moment as a chance to let out a collective sigh of relief that the weekend is nearly here, as well as give a brief summary of all the bookish fun we’ve been having over the past seven days! #FinallyFriday is open to all book bloggers, readers, reviewers, and authors!

 

I’m still plugging away at the last couple of chapters of This Dread Road. Between a big ceremony I was planning at work and the approaching finals for the courses I’m taking, I haven’t been able to devote as much time to it as I’d like, but that is changing. My goal is still to finish the last chapter over the weekend and have a clean, shiny copy to send off to my editor in two weeks!

Reading wise, I wrapped up reading Beowulf for my literature class and am now studying over all the poems and pieces we’ve read this semester in preparation of the final. I’m still plugging away at Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on audio, but I managed to read two novels as well–Please, Pretty Lights and Camp Outlook. My current “fun” read is Lights Out at the Reptile House.

How about you? What bookish things did you accomplish this week? I’d love to hear from you. Post your #FinallyFriday Weekly Roundup and add your link here.

This week has been a busy blur! On the writing front, I’m working on finishing up the initial draft of my third novel and the last installment of the Bennett Series, This Dread Road. My goal is to have it revised and shipped off to my illustrious, ever-patient editor by mid-May!

I’ve also had a few lightbulb moments when it comes to One Last Aria a Cold War romantic suspense novella I’m planning out for a Veteran’s Day release. I can’t wait to introduce you to Max and Simone, the two main characters.

Reading-wise, I’ve had a lot of fun this week. I finished up Red on the Run, the first in the new Syndicate-Born Trilogy by K. M. Hodge. (Click here for my review!) I resumed reading The Infinite Air by Fiona Kidman, and I plowed through two-thirds of Beowulf for my literature class. I also started listening to Jim Dale’s narration of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. This is my least favorite Harry Potter book, mostly because it’s so angering and depressing (Umbridge, anyone?), but I’m still excited to give it a listen.
