What's Up Wednesday: New Year!

Hello Poetteers!

I surprised myself these few days of the new year. I made a goodreads goal to read 60 books this year. I lowered it from last year's 90 books, which I didn't reach. I hope lowering it makes it more attainable.

I've already read two books!

Inside Out & Back Again - which I loved. It's a MG novel in verse about a refugee. I'm used to reading YA, so this was a light read even though there are some emotionally touching scenes. I gave it 5 stars.

The Luxe by Anne Godberson - I enjoyed reading it but it was predictable. I enjoyed the time period and writing style. I gave it 4/5 stars.

Sadly though, I haven't done much writing. I'm trying to write a short story a week. It's not going very well and I need the inspiration/motivation. Hopefully that will change.

Love, Fida
