Life: Changes

Chicago skyline at night
Since I've been absent on the blogging front the last couple of weeks, I thought I'd update on some pretty big changes that have been happening in my life. I accepted an internship with Booklist magazine, which I began last week. So, I've moved to Chicago with my cat, in a tiny studio apartment a little north of downtown. It's taken some getting used to, but I'm learning the ropes.

The internship has been excellent so far, though! I've only learned a couple of things and opened the mail, but I should get to start some other fun projects this week. But, the plus of working at the American Library Association, which is where Booklist is located--so many galleys. On Thursday, we cleaned out the old 2016 books that were reviewed, and basically they're free for the taking. How cool is that? I'll have to see if I can snag some good ones when I go back on Tuesday.

Hopefully now that I've transitioned smoothly, I'll be able to get reading again, making playlists, etc. I'm starting to settle into a schedule, so I'll be able to schedule posts more regularly, and update when cool things are happening. I'm hoping to be able to finish The Great American Whatever this week, which has been fantastic so far! I'll give a more full review in the next week or so.

Until then, I'm going to keep being immersed in all of the fantastic children's and young adult books that can be found at Booklist.
