What I'm Reading

I'm currently reading ALL OUR YESTERDAYS by Cristin Terrill. I'm a little over halfway done with it, and y'all I'm really loving it. Books about time travel can be really confusing, but not this one. I'd heard that the two POVs were from the same character (one in the present and one four years in the future). Honestly, I wasn't sure about it. But I actually love that fact. You get to know the character as she is now (shallow, spoiled, and in love with her genius neighbor/best friend), and how she is after things go wrong with the whole world (imprisoned and tortured by the same boy, who invented a time machine). The future version escapes and travels back in time to murder said boy before he can invent the time machine. Yeah, lots of conflict there. I can't wait to see how it all ends!

What I'm Writing

Nothing new to report here. I'm still trying to iron out details of my new WiP. Let me just say that this one is being quite difficult. 

What Inspires Me Right Now

The Walking Dead. Seriously. I've never been a huge fan of zombies, but I absolutely LOVE this show. I finished watching season 3 recently (in about 3 days, no less). And now I'm just waiting for season 4 to start. If you've never watched it before, I promise it's more that just people killing zombies (although there is a lot of that). The characters are incredible and complex. No joke - I bawled during one of the episodes of season 3 because a certain character died. 

What Else I've Been Up To

I'm *attempting* to get back in an exercise routine. Attempting because I've been really inconsistent, but I am trying. :D  I've been walking several miles a few days a week (trying to make it every day). What I really want is to start running, but that's not gonna happen right away. I'm pathetically out of shape! 

And that's all! What have you been up to lately?
