In My Mailbox - June 21, 2015
Hey y'all!As you read this, I'm actually in Charlottesville, Virginia for University of Virginia lacrosse camp! (Wahoowa! Go Cavaliers! Hopefully I'll be one of them this time next year.) For those of you who don't know, in the spring time, I essentially give up all my reading time to go play goalie for my high school's lacrosse time - and dedicate a good amount of time to it in the fall and summertime as well. I haven't played a proper game of lacrosse since the end of the season in April, so this may go disastrously but we'll give it a shot. So I'm actually writing this post on Wednesday, not Sunday.In any case, I'm scheduling my posts for the next week while I explore Chapel Hill (my sis is headed to UNC track camp) and Charlottesville, but I'm hoping to get a good amount of reading done on the thirteen-hour drive. I have a stack of books, two audiobooks, and a manuscript I have to finish for Teen Eyes Editorial.If you're interested in commissioning me to edit a manuscript - publishing experience and the teen perspective is really helpful for YA novels! - I edit through Teen Eyes Editorial. Summer vacation is the perfect time to book with me because I have a lot more time, and I usually get a ton of editing done while I'm up in Canada at the beginning of July!I actually just got an Audible plan with my family (the one time I'll actually spring for something run by Amazon.) Our first listen? The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I've reread it every summer since my first time reading, but this is the first chance I've ever had to listen to it on audio. I'm also planning on finishing The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson on audio - I'm about halfway through, and it's slow-going.Without further ado, here's what I've gotten recently.
