monday

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by The Purple Booker. This meme asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer each week:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

And then also proposes a random question.


This weeks random question is: If you could be best friends with an author, who would you choose and why?


Well is this a juicy one or what?? The choices are infinite. As writing skills go, I would to be friends with someone with some unique writing from whom to learn, but another option would be to meet someone with such an imaginative inner world that could take you places by just engaging in any conversation! So how to choose exactly?? From the mood I am in right now, I would say Charlotte Brontë, I would like to get myself into that dark psyche of hers! But the possibilities, like I said, and infinite!!

For the not so random prompt, this week’s chosen one is Up next I think I’ll read… Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis. I am a complete fan of this author. I need to read all of her work and I am going backwards!! First I read her last published book The Female of The Species, then I went for her previous one, A Madness so Discreet and next what? Well next I am goint for her debut novel, a dystopian and part of a duology!

Here’s a synopsis to open up you apetite:

Fans of classic frontier survival stories, as well as readers of dystopian literature, will enjoy this futuristic story where water is worth more than gold. New York Times bestselling author Michael Grant says Not a Drop to Drink is a debut “not to be missed.” With evocative, spare language and incredible drama, danger, and romance, Mindy McGinnis depicts one girl’s journey in a frontierlike world not so different from our own.

Teenage Lynn has been taught to defend her pond against every threat: drought, a snowless winter, coyotes, and most important, people looking for a drink. She makes sure anyone who comes near the pond leaves thirsty—or doesn’t leave at all. Confident in her own abilities, Lynn has no use for the world beyond the nearby fields and forest. But when strangers appear, the mysterious footprints by the pond, nighttime threats, and gunshots make it all too clear Lynn has exactly what they want, and they won’t stop until they get it. . . .

For more in this gritty world, join Lynn on an epic journey to find home in the companion novel, In a Handful of Dust.
