Happy NaNoWriMo!


Are any of you participating in NaNoWriMo?! Now’s the time to start that novel you’ve been thinking about! This is my first year doing it and I’m pretty excited.


Also, some house keeping stuff. I’ve been reading some classics like The Bell Jar, The Hobbit and Lolita but I haven’t been writing reviews for stuff like that as I figure a lot of you may have already read them. But let me know if you’d like to see that!

An interactive book, Doodling for Dog People demonstrates how to draw whimsical doggie doodles, while encouraging artists and doodle enthusiasts to develop their own style and techniques. With its portable format and plenty of open doodling pages, this quirky doodle book is perfect for on-the-go creative types.” -Goodreads

I received these books from a peer at Quarto Knows in exchange for an honest review. These books are super cute and I love the style of the artist, Gemma Correll. (I especially liked the anthropomorphic fruits). I attached some more photos and sneak peeks below.

The Doodling For books are marketed towards on-the-go artists and people that love to doodle. In my opinion, it would do a lot better marketed for kids and gift books. There are plenty of informative quizzes and facts that would be great for kids and all the drawing prompts would provide great entertainment on long car rides or flights. Kind of like an activity book. I also think they’d be great to give as gifts. Have a cat lover friend? A foodie? Everyone does. The Tree Hugger one was especially funny. Also at $16.95 it’s pretty reasonably priced. Would recommend!
