I'll save you the lamentations of a busy week. What I will say is that I had a blast this past week doing lab tours for elementary/middle school kids-- they were such a great group! I've done lab tours for kids in the past who I was just unable to get excited about the science we do. Luckily these kids were super involved and asked great questions. Almost enough to make me consider teaching kids.
Ha ha. Just kidding. In my opinions teachers are nothing short of saints and I do not think sainthood is the path I want to take for my future. I am thankful that other people are willing to take on that job.
In other news, I've been working on my hand lettering and a new watercolor-esque technique that actually uses a Ziploc bag, some markers, and water! Bonus points to anyone who realized that I accidentally switched a word in the quote on the left. ;)
But on to book news! My plan tomorrow is to hang out in my lovely local library and write this week's posts so if I sound a little hazy on the firm details on what's getting published when, that would be why. Luckily for me, this upcoming week is going to be (fingers crossed) a lot less busy which gives me more time to both read and write!
- Dear Sunday: Busy Bee
- Seven Deadly Sins Book Tag
- I forwent the typically Top Ten Tuesday (as I couldn't even come up with five literary fathers I wanted to showcase) to have fun writing this post about books that correspond to questions inspired by the, you guessed it, seven deadly sins
- Review: Best of All Possible Worlds
- A favorite sci-fi novel of mine
I didn't write a Stacking the Shelves post this past week because, well, I didn't stack my shelves with any books. I'm making my way through a non-fiction I wrote about in the last stacking the shelves and since I never read non-fiction, my progress is pretty slow. The other book I read this past week was part of a series and those always seem to fly by. Anyhow, I think I'll pick up a couple books tomorrow when I'm hanging out at my library. Most of the books I want to read are currently on hold--- thus the lack of new additions to my shelves.
- Maybe a book tag
- Maybe a Top Ten Tuesday
- Maybe both!
- the universe is an unknowable place
- Probably a stacking the shelves
- Review: First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
Well that was probably not the most helpful what to look forward to list I have ever written...looks like you'll just have to follow me on Bloglovin' to see what gets posted this upcoming week-- it'll be a surprise! For everyone involved.
I hope your week is also a slower one! Unless you've had too many of those and want something busy in which case I'm jealous and hope to become you by the end of this week.
