Importance of Space!

Hello everyone!! :)

I have been settling into my new routine with my job and all that, and trying to settle down and really get to work on book 2. I realized that my space wasn't really working for me. I'm really big on space, and if it doesn't feel right, I can't work in it. So I made some changes and this is the result:

We found the lantern at the art walk here in norman for $25, all it needed was a new cord! I bought my bookshelf to place all my books on so they weren't stacked on the floor (I already need another one, but that's okay, gives me an excuse to by more books). And I turned my desk around so it wasn't facing the corner. You can't tell, but the curtains are a dark purple, which is my favorite color. I'm going to move the lights up to the crease of the ceiling and wall, and add my diplomas and other things around the room at some point, but I already love the space and feel that it is more inviting and creative!

Another awesome thing: my book is on the shelf at my local Hastings! It was the coolest experience to go into the bookstore and see my book!

I'm working on getting it into other bookstores, too. Doesn't CUTLASS look great on that shelf?! And in such a good spot, too!

What is your writing space like? What's your favorite thing in it?

Book Update!

I've been busy which is no surprise. Mostly, it's just me being busy fitting into a new normal. While I do that, I decided I should share some new books I got, the books I am finishing up, and those I plan to read! Hopefully this can be a weekly thing.

Anyways, I was at Hasting the other day and picked up these:

They are SABRIEL, ABHORSEN, and LIRAEL by Garth Nix. Here is a link to a website associated with the books...cause the actual Garth Nix website is being worked on. LOL. Anyways. These look interesting and sounded interesting and I think I will enjoy them.

I am currently finishing up this book:

This is THE EXILED QUEEN by Cinda Williams Chima. Have you read her books? Have you visited her website? She's awesome. I love her. Go visit her we site. 

You know who I also love? Han.

If you haven't picked up these books, the first one is THE DEMON KING, I suggested you do! It has taken me a long time to read them, only cause I get scared to finish books I love. HAHA.

The next books on my list to read are:

Well duh. I bet you knew this was coming. And make a note that these should be flip-flopped cause THE GRAY WOLF THRONE is book three and THE CRIMSON CROWN is fourth. 

I'm excited and frightened to finish this series but I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. 0__0

Anyways. Tell me what you are reading, please! I LOVE book recommendations!
