Yay! It´s time again for Happy Friday! Oh, if you have not entered my “I love reading” GIVEAWAY, you still can :-), just click here for more info. Looking forward to knowing what made YOU smile this week!
Happy dance for Kerri: Kerri has an agent! 😀 Her post is inspirational and encouraging and a wonderful reminder of why perseverance is important. Thanks Kerri for being such a great example!
Books, books, and more books: You may be already aware that I am limited on how many books (hardcopies or paperbacks) that I can buy a month. Since I have my kindle and since I commute, it´s more efficient to actually get e-books. However, I sometimes crave for the feeling of holding a book in my hand. Since I also read a lot (again thanks to my commute), I sometimes re-read books at night. I stopped smoking more than 6 weeks ago and saved money that way. I decided I could reward myself. My monthly reward: I got to buy myself the paper version of my favorite books which I read in January and February. They look so pretty 😀
My new project…: I am excited about my new project. In-between editing PLAYING WITH FIRE, I started working more seriously on a YA contemporary romance novel and it´s going quite well.
Reading: I read two very good books this past week: Trafficked by Kim Purcell and Getting over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald. I´ll post more about them soon 😀
Awesome weekend with the hubby: Hubby and I went to see Klitschko vs Mormeck last week. Yep. Boxing. It was amazing!
So tell me: what made YOU smile this week?

Very pretty books and you have some of my favourites in there 🙂 Sounds like you had a great week. Mine was mostly good (finely worked up the nerve to post a snippet from my WiP) with a little bad (dad’s surgery thing). Here’s hoping next week is good from start to finish 🙂 Have a good weekend, Elodie!
Thanks Jaime 😀 I really enjoyed your snippet and I hope your dad feels better very soon!
Aww, don’t you two look so cute!! 😉 Congratulations on passing the six-week milestone–you deserve rewards. Keep it up! 🙂 Have a really great weekend, Elodie.
Thanks Colin 😀
I love the fact that since I stopped smoking, I can use that money to buy more books…It’s quite a wonderful reward!
Oh congrats on quitting smoking! Whoohoo even get books, so much better. new books are oh so pretty. Good luck on your new project.
So this week what made me smile…I watched a couple movies, bought a couple books, and reconnected with a friend whom has been silent since before the holidays and he always finds a way to make me smile 🙂
Thanks Eve 😀 I am really happy I found such a wonderful reward for myself…
I’m glad you had a good week, too! and hope this one is treating you well 🙂
