What's up Wed: Nov Edition

Hello readers,

What I'm Reading

Last month I told you I read THE EVOLUTION OF EMILY. It comes out on the 18th and thought I should share my review!

The Evolution of EmilyThe Evolution of Emily by Kate Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just within the first chapter I'm already loving Emily and her want for more. I can tell she's a brave lady. It feels good to read about a quiet main character. There isn't many of them in YA fiction. Her writing style is reflected.

I felt as though that Olivia was the main character, as well. And how could I forget Sam (from the first book)? It was great to be able to catch up with her on her life after the book.

What I'm Writing


I am participating in NaNoWriMo ! My tip is to have an outline. It can be a full one or a one sentence pitch. I have one idea for each day.

You are wondering what if the character ends up writing her own story? That it goes a different direction? So be it. I can still put the idea if the day in. I can make it connect, work... right? We need that word count!

Also, plan your time!

Love, Fida

Yay! I'm so glad you loved EoE. Emily was a really fun character to get to know as a writer and I love that readers are connecting with her too.

Have a great week!

Oh! I was lucky enough to read an early version of EMILY and I loved it! Kate writes such cool, diverse characters, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next. Have a great week, Fida!

Good luck with NaNo!! I agree that even a one sentence pitch as a guide for the day can be a lifesaver while drafting - especially when you're going fast for NaNo :)
