One of my favourite book series is the Unwind series by Neal Shusterman. The books are set in a dystopian world where children over the age of 13 can be ‘unwound’: in other words, their bodies can be taken apart piece by piece and the government decides who to give them to; people who need them most. The books specifically follow three characters, Connor, Risa and Lev, as they are sent to a ‘Harvest Camp’ (gross, I know) to be unwound. The books are written so well and I love the characterisations and the setting.
It was news to me a couple of days ago when I saw on Neal Shusterman’s Facebook page that he shared a link to some news about an Unwind film adaptation – and I don’t know if I’m excited or nervous…
This is only going to be a short post, but I really wanted to write it. Today I’ve done something huge… I’ve handed in my dissertation!! A lot of research, stress and over 10,000 words later it’s all finished. All that’s left to do now is to graduate and then, for the first time in seventeen years, I won’t be in education any more – and that’s terrifying. What happens now?!
Well, now that I don’t have to feel like I’m procrastinating every time I pick up a book or begin a new blog post, the first thing I’m definitely going to do is get through some of the books on my TBR pile. I have a stack of books ready to read and review, and I can’t wait to devote all my time to it. Until I finish university officially and go into the adult world and get a job (aaah), I can pay a lot more attention to this blog rather than it being secondary to my degree. I can’t wait!!
Beginning tomorrow, I’m going to put a lot more time and effort into my blog and social media and hopefully, I can fulfil my aim (oh god, I’m still in dissertation mode) of building my blog and its readership. And to those who already follow my blog or read my posts – thank you. The best is yet to come!
