Reading Update
Zen Pencils: Creative StruggleZen Pencils – Creative Struggle: Illustrated Advice from Masters of Creativity by Gavin Aung Than. Enjoyable graphic novel style book with quotes from creatives such as Frida Kahlo, Albert Einstein, and Nikola Tesla.
Carry On (Simon Snow, #1)Carry On and Wayward Son (Simon Snow, #2)Wayward Son (Simon Snow 1-2) by Rainbow Rowell. Amusing, absolutely NOT Harry Potter (AHEM) story of Chosen One Simon Snow and the wacky shenanigans he and his friends get up to at their British wizarding school (first book). In the second book, he and his friends visit the US over their university holiday and get up to more wacky shenanigans. Ends tidily, unless you read the epilogue, which sets up a sort of cliffie situation for the next book. Grrrr.
Death and Relaxation (Ordinary Magic, #1)Death and Relaxation, Devils and Details (Ordinary Magic, #2)Devils and Details, Rock Candy (Ordinary Magic #4-A)Rock Candy, and Paper Stars (Ordinary Magic, #3.2)Paper Stars (Ordinary Magic 1-2, 4.1, 4.2) by Devon Monk. Ok paranormal romance series about the chief of police and her sisters (also cops) of Ordinary, Oregon, where the gods go to vacation without their powers.

Linkity really didn’t expect allergies in February

Congrats to Susana, who won Lovers Leap by JL Merrow! Lovers Leap will be released by Riptide Publishing on February 29.

If you’re using mobile and things are weird, it’s probably because I have the mobile plugin for my site turned off right now – it decided that everyone was on mobile. *sigh*

Reading Update
Mixed Media Revolution: Creative Ideas for Reusing Your Art by Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson. So-so whirlwind overview of many, many mixed media techniques. Some of the techniques required you to scan QR codes or visit the publisher’s website for more details, which I found annoying.
The Mixed-Media Artist: Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams from Over 40 Amazing Artists by Seth Apter. This did not fare well being read after An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers.
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I was completely unprepared for how this book sucked me in – I read it in one sitting, tissue box close by.
