Good morning! I'm wearing both my librarian and writer hats today. I have another book to squee about, and some writing updates to impart.

Let's start with the Squeeworthy Book. I've been thinking of ways to change up the format of this feature to make it more interesting so I'm going to try some new things in the coming weeks. Something's bound to stick, right?

Anyway, this week's Squeeworthy Book is another series, Medusa Girls by Tera Lynn Childs.



Books in Series: SWEET VENOM, SWEET SHADOWS, SWEET LEGACY

Plot: Grace, Gretchen, and Greer each grew up in different households. When the three come together, they learn they are identical triplets and have the power to send mythological monsters back to their own realm. They are also the Key Generation, three young women prophesied to open the door between our world and the world of the monsters. It's Charmed meets Greek mythology.

Favorite Character: Grace, definitely. She is the sister who grows the most throughout the trilogy. She's smart and she learns to kick butt.

Why is it squeeworthy? This whole series is so much fun. You have three sisters learning who they are and about their magical powers. And they're fighting monsters along the way. Did I mention that it reminds me of Charmed? Each girl has an individual power in addition to the powers all three share. It's magic, it's mayhem, and it's wonderful.

Okay, and now for my #writemotivation update.

I haven't accomplished anything this past week, but to be fair, I had a houseguest.

1) Plot out MWM

I wrote down some more notes about my witches and my trolls, but a coherent plot still eludes me. I'll continue to dig.

2) Write query for WS

I have less than 100 pages to go on this draft, and I'm worried it won't reach 80,000 words. If I can get it as close as possible, I can write the query.

3) Send out first round of queries

See above.

4) Write first chapter of MWM

Still need to plot and outline before I begin.

How are your writing projects coming? Got any squeeworthy books to recommend?
