When I transitioned from social media manager and freelance blogger to full-time writer, I was adamant about blogging frequently and with enthusiasm. Three posts a week! Heck, four posts a week! Definitely nothing below two, for sure!
I underestimated the time it takes to write several books a year + dealing with the technical side of editing, design, and marketing said books. Not to mention that one time our first floor flooded because a pipe deciding it didn't want to be a pipe any more. BUT, don't count me down and out yet!
WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE: Library Edition is going to be my blog's savior! Each week I'll spotlight one of the many books I have in my personal library in an attempt to give you a little taste of MY tastes but also my way of trying to pressure you into getting the same books. #ItsFine
Since this is the first one, though, I decided to include four books I recently purchased and then a trio of some of my favorite blue books! #SorryNotSorry
🔦 The Official Nancy Drew Handbook: Skills, Tips, and Life Lessons from Everyone's Favorite Girl Detective by Penny Warner
💀 To Your Scattered Bodies Go (Riverworld Saga, Book 1) by Philip José Farmer
🦈 Jaws by Peter Benchley
My favorite color is blue and these beauties are prominently displayed in my bookcase sporting some beautiful shades. I purchased Nancy Drew and Jaws when I was, oddly enough, shopping for my wedding! I had piles of books as my centerpieces and those two made the cut. While I should have already finished reading both, I haven't.
Why not, you filthy animal?!
Because I buy books like they're going out of style and just haven't looped back around to them! Until I do, they sure are wonderful additions to my ever-growing To-Read list!
Now, as for To Your Scattered Bodies Go? Oh man. I could write a book about how much I love this book. Originally I had no idea it existed but then Sci-Fi (Syfy now but I don't like that spelling so I REFRAIN FROM USING IT) had a miniseries called Riverworld and I watched it and thought the idea was amazing. A few years later and I asked one of my creative writing professors if he'd seen it...And he showed me this book! Years later and I still have it...IT'S FINE AGAIN!
And as for my recently purchased...
