Weekly Updates: Works in Progress

Hello again! I've just finished settling in back at home for a nice long summer vacation.



But instead of reading, I ended up just redoing my whole banner design. Well, I was planning to redo it at one point in time or another, but IT JUST HAPPENED. It's a work in progress though. I'm at the stage where I'm adding characters as usual (I've been wanting to only stick to book characters, but it is so hard! Especially when I can't find a reference for my favorite MCs)

Other than that, I do have a bunch of random updates that need mentioning:

I'm going to be participating in the Semi-Charmed Summer 2014 Book Challenge


I probably won't plan book ahead of time, I'll just read what I want and then see what points I can get. It started in the beginning of May and ends August 31st! I'm pretty sure people can still jump in and join!

I'm going on a road trip, starting next Monday! So I'll try to schedule as many posts as I can for the following two weeks, but I will have my laptop with me. I'll definitely get some TTTs up though. And also updates along the way of course.

I'm also participating in the Way of Kings Read along with a bunch of people! I mentioned this in my STS yesterday.


And that's it from me! I hope all of you had a very nice week as I did!

  1. Ohh, I hope you have a nice roadtrip! (I've been on a lot of roadtrips and they're probably not my favourite...hehe.) Do you do all the drawing/designing for your header? I LOVE IT.

    1. hahaah I LOVE ROAD TRIPS. But this is the first one where I'm driving without a parental, so I'm super scared that the car will break down in the middle of the highway :O *knocks on wood*

      Yeah I draw everything by myself :D I have a hard time drawing people, so I'm practicing on that. I'm definitely more of a painter person instead of a drawer (only on the computer lol)

      THANKS CAIT :))))))

  2. I will seriously always love your blog header designs, because your drawing skills are amazingg! And I'm looking forward to what you think of The Way of Kings. It's very information heavy, but it tells a wonderful fantasy story. :)

    1. Hahahah thanks Hanna! I'm glad you like my drawings! All my friends are super pros, so it's nice hearing people compliment my art.

      Way of Kings has a lot of information and is confusing at some times, but I'm actually really into the story! Just, augh it's 1000 pages hahaha.

  3. Your blog banner is super vibrant and colorful, Valerie. I like it a lot. It shows so much about us bookworms, and the escape we experience when we read these wonderful books. I hope you have fun in your roadtrip! They're awesome voyages and I am actually hoping I get to be in one soon. And yay for Way of Kings!! I love discussing that book with you!

    1. Awww thanks Faye!

      I'm really enjoying The Way of Kings so far, even though it's my first epic fantasy (or whatever it's called).

  4. I have to echo everyone else and say that your header is so fun! I love the whole concept behind it and the way you included the characters. It's great!
