Weekly Reading List #61

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. For me my fiancé is coming to visit next weekend for Halloween so I’m trying really hard to get as much done as humanly possible so that I don’t have to worry about school work and can somewhat relax with him. It’ll be nice J. School going great I’m working on three different projects right now, I’m editing one book, typing the second, and starting something completely different that has dragons because who doesn’t love dragons. And there is something not working in the first chapter of my novel so I’m going to finish fine tuning it for my creative writing class so that I can turn it in and figure out what isn’t working. Maybe it’s the fact that I wrote it 5 years ago and my writing style has changed, maybe it’s something in the presentation. I don’t know, that’s what class is for. So this weekend was really dedicated to that and lots of reading and writing. But anyway, check out my weekly reading list for the next week. Happy reading!

Weekly Reading List #60

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Lots of reading this weekend for homework, which is going to be tons of fun. Well, one of the books for class, A Writers Book of Cures and Spells by Marcia Johnson, it’s not that it’s bad, but it is hard to read because it’s written in such an unfamiliar way. It’s very different and has a strong way of lulling the reader, which isn’t bad but it definitely is a good story to read to relax the mind, but it’s not easy to read. Then I have Borges Labyrinths, I’m liking it so far, it’s all the supplemental reading I’m not looking forward to, reading essays, not really my thing, but maybe I’ll be surprised and I’ll find them interesting.

But other than school work, because I would die if that was all I had to read, here’s my reading list for the week to keep my brain functioning. Happy reading!
