In the Past 2 Weeks...

Website: whatvanessareads.wordpress.com

In the past two weeks I tried to finish The Mrs Marridge Project by Pauline Fisk with no success. I ditched it because it sucked and picked up Girl vs. Bear: Stories from the 80s by Lisa Kerr (click title to read review). I also read Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman which was scary. Then I read In Your Room by Jordanna Fraiberg which wasn't as good as I expected. Now I'm reading Shelter Me by Alex McAulay. I like it so far. Also, I reviewed Fly on the Wall by E. Lockhart. I interviewed Susane Colasanti (When It Happens, Take Me There), click here to see the interview.

My past week has been especially productive.

Lastly, I wrote about an idea to a book blogger chat. Here's what the post said:

I got the following idea because of The Page Flipper’s Author Chats (which are awesome and you should check out). I have been thinking about holding a book blogger chat. It would involve basically any book blogger (or author, if they’d like to join us) in the YA world who would like to chat about whatever they’d like: books, music, TV, movies. It could be a cool way for us to ditch the robotized reviews to have a real-time talk and make friends with each other (or rather, make better friends).

It would be held on a chat site like chatzy or chatmaker at 8 pm eastern time one day between Jan. 5 and 11.

What I would like is if you could give me feedback on this, commenting which day from January 5 to the 11 is the best day for you to chat. 

I really hope you guys like this idea. Leave all your thoughts in the comments!

Hope you guys are reading as much as me!

Dear Teen Tuesday,

I am a terrible person.

Not only did I not post anything last week... but I also haven't read anything in the past two weeks.

Except for Pride and Prejudice.

Which I'm not even halfway through with.

My only excuse: Christmas. Which is a sucky excuse, because vacation should be making me read more.

Either way, that is my only update. This is probably even more pitiful than last week's lack of posting. =(
