What's Up Wednesday

Another Wednesday, another update! “What’s Up Wednesday” is a weekly blog hop by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. From Jaime: It’s similar in some respects to the Currently… post, but it’s been whittled down to only four headings to make it quicker and more manageable on a weekly basis. 

What I'm Reading: I just finished Lauren Oliver's Before I Fall. Though I'm way late reading it, I will be doing a review. I really loved this book, so I'm glad I picked it up. I also just started Think Like a Rock Star, which is about turning followers into fans. If you have any interest in social media and how to engage (and if you're all aspiring authors like me, then you should!) I highly recommend it. Good for marketers too (you know, my day job).

What I'm Writing: Not. I've been really busy and haven't been able to touch my WIP. I'm hoping to get back into it soon. And here's why...

What Else I've Been Up To: WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Sorry for the caps, but I think they're warranted. We closed last Thursday, and we're doing some electrical work tomorrow before we can move in. This has been a whirlwind of the past five weeks. We were not planning to become home owners, but here we are!

Unfortunately, our amazingly fabulous REALTOR got accused of photo-bombing. His child's presence resulted in this conversation with my mother-in-law:

And, of course, Frankie had to check out the house. His opinion remains undecided.

What have you been up to lately?


  1. First of all, CONGRATS ON THE HOUSE!! That's huge, Liz. :-) We're still renting, but I'm hoping the home thing will happen in the near future. I still haven't read BEFORE I FALL. That's one of those books that just slipped through the cracks for me. I'll have to get to it sometime.

    I hope things start to slow down for you so you can get some good writing time in. :-)

  2. CONGRATS ON YOUR HOUSE! So exciting, Liz! And I totally laughed out loud when you posted that text conversation on Instagram the other day. Too funny. :-)

  3. Congrats on the house! :D

    I didn't read Before I Fall until last summer, and while I like Delirium more, that's not really saying much because I love everything Lauren Oliver writes.

  4. That's amazing news about the house! Congratulations! Love the hardwood floors, and it looks like Frankie does too. That conversation about the baby is hilarious, especially considering the sold sign in the picture. I hope moving goes smoothly for you and that soon you'll have time to settle into your new house!Yay!

  5. Congratulations on your new house!
    May it be a place of inspiration for you:)

  6. Whoa, congrats on the house!! That's awesome! I hope it comes with a perfect writing/reading nook :)

  7. How exciting! Congratulations on the lovely new home!

  8. Congratulations on your new home! We bought a house last year and it is so lovely having your own place and being able to make it exactly how you want - enjoy!

    I loved Before I Fall, it was such a brilliant read.
