I have had a very unproductive summer and autumn, filled with good intentions, and unfulfilled promises...
And I'm pretty sure that nothing's going to change that.
Anyway, I'll try to be a little more proactive regarding my writing, reading and other generally amusing past times.
Had a pretty decent week actually.
Went to see "The Town" last saturday. It's an excellent thriller, full of suspense and drama, and the acting and eye-candy isn't that bad either....
It needs freaking SUBTITLES!
I couldn't understand half of what was said, and if I had, I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more.
Went to a book signing in Dublin on Thursday. Great day for me....
Not so great for the poor woman who fell off her chair in Supermacs and broke her ankle.
Arrived, with books under one arm and dignity tucked away somewhere in my handbag and completely nerded out for the entire night.....ah bliss.
Got signed copies of all my books. Personalised, don't ya know, and met the wonderfully talented, and utterly hilarious Genius' that are Maggie Stiefvater, Jennifer Lynn Barnes and Michael Scott.
I was shocked when I saw JLB. One: Because she's so young.
and more importantly
Two: She is the image of my fourth class teacher!
They were all really sound actually, didn't scoff at my fan-girl ness and I even got pictures taken.
I even got to talk to Maggie S about the double entendres in the Linger audiobook, courtesy of Dan Bitner. He played Pete O'Malley in the fabulously funny and sweet "Adventureland"....
His voice actually made me fall off a chair!
He has the sexiest voice I have ever heard....
And yes, it beats Johnny Depp any day, ladies. Take note.
Anyway, if I have time, or energy, I will read and review all the books, a well as the one I got in a goodie bag that isn't due to be released till next april.
Sigh. I loves me an ARC. :D
Ranting is so much fun, isn't it? College Life has taken it's toll on my wonderous rambling capabilities.
Oh, and just for fun:
READ PAPER TOWNS BY JOHN GREEN!
I promise, you won't regret it.
Better than signing on I guess.
