‘Where have you been?’ no one actually asked, but I shall tell you anyway! Easter and summer might mean the holidays, but they also mean final university deadlines. The big ones. The last few weeks I’ve spent desperately scrambling a story together and today is the day that I handed it in, which means freedom for a few days before I start frantically compiling an essay, and then you know, it just a short 15,000 words until I’m officially done. But, in my writer’s panic I let the blog slide. So I’m using these few days of respite to write up some lovely posts ahead of time, so I won’t go missing for too long again!
It also means I have a little time to binge on books again. Luckily Hall of Small Animals by Thomas Pierce arrived this week, so I won’t be short of things to read! I came across the short story collection on Whitney’s Ten New Additions to my TBR Pile over on the wonderful Imaginary Book Club and was just instantly drawn to the weirdness of the cover. The blurb sounds as if the ordinary and the absurd blend together in the collection, and I love stories that combine the two. So I’m looking forward to it!
Did you read anything interesting while I was away?
