It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (November 04): 11/04/19
Last Thursday was Halloween. My daughter went as Violet Evergarden. She paid for the costume with her own money and spent a month getting the wig ready.
Last week was also the end of Inktober. I managed to draw something every day for the entire month.
I was also busy with painting. I finished my cup of ice painting, which started as the Inktober 4 drawing. I started a new abstract which I'm calling "Aerial." On Sunday I started a painting of a Japanese daylily, which was originally my Inktober 3 drawing.

I missed Carry On and probably need to go back and read that before I tackle this book.
Comment #2: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 22:53:00
Carry On does set up the characters you'll be following in Wayward Son but there's enough backstory given that you might be able to skip straight to this one.

I love your soup painting!!
Stargazing is on my TBR, how did you like it?
Comment #4: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 22:58:00
The short answer is yes. I've posted my review here.

I went to a watercolor class at my library last week. We painted bookmarks. It was a lot of fun and I'm happy with how mine turned out. I think I would like to do more watercolor painting.
Comment #6: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 22:59:00
You should continue with watercolor if it's fun for you.
Comment #7: Sunday, November 03, 2019 at 23:27:31
Your daughter's costume is great! How wonderful she chose a book character. Well done on your painting each day. To me that is remarkable. Enjoy your reading too!
Comment #8: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:02:00
She's only seen the anime. I'm not painting daily, but I would like to. Other things get in the way. I end up doing it about three or four times a week.
Comment #9: Sunday, November 03, 2019 at 23:54:34
That’s a great costume! Wishing you a great reading week
Comment #10: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:06:00
It is. She saved up her allowance and birthday money for it.
Comment #11: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 08:07:16
Wow, good job with Inktober. You are very talented!
Comment #12: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:06:00
Thank you. It was a fun month for drawing.
Comment #13: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 08:23:25
Your daughter's costume was terrific! Your drawings are too - you need to keep at it even though Inktober is over.
Comment #14: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:09:00
I will still be drawing, although I'll be spending more of my time painting. I need to buy ink refills for a bunch of my copics.
Comment #15: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 09:33:42
Your daughter looks amazing! And so cool that you completed Inktober. :)
Comment #16: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:11:00
Thank you. She's thrilled with all the positive comments her costume has received. Inktober was fun and I think I'm feeling some withdrawal from it.
Comment #17: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 15:16:17
I love your daughter's costume! And what a great idea for a costume. My daughter dressed up as Haunted Beauty. I think it's her favorite costume so far she's had. I love your artwork. Aerial is especially stunning. I hope you continue to enjoy your reading! Have a great week.
Comment #18: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:11:00
Sounds like it was a good costume year for both our daughters. I'm having fun with Aerial and plan to continue doing abstracts now and and again.
Comment #19: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 16:25:23
Your daughter looks great in her costume! I hope you have a great week!
Comment #20: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:17:00
Thank you. I'll let her know. Same to you.
Comment #21: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 16:28:45
Your daughter’s costume is fabulous. She should feel very proud of herself for all she did to prepare for Halloween.
Inktober was certainly a success, wasn’t it? Will you do Inkvember next?
The line for Raina Telgemeier was huge at the Texas Book Festival. It may have been the longest line of the day.
Have a great week!
Comment #22: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:19:00
She is very pleased with how it turned out except that the wig needs to be restyled for the next time she wears the costume.
Inkvember isn't a thing which is good because I need to buy refills for my Copics. Also, I'm doing Nanowrimo this month and trying to keep up with my painting. Finding a balance between painting and writing is tricky.
I can imagine that it would have been. Her books remain popular.
Comment #23: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 17:02:30
Lovely assortment of art and books. Happy November. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I love your daughter's costume. You have had a great reading week - I hope the coming week is as successful.
Comment #26: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:23:00
Thank you. It turned out well. So far this week is going well for reading.
Comment #27: Monday, November 04, 2019 at 23:22:34
Wow great job with the art! I don't know why but I always love food art (and it often makes me hungry lol).
Comment #28: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:23:00
Food art is remarkably fun to make too. I'm planning on turning those drawings into paintings.
Comment #29: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 15:16:13
I have loved seeing all the different artworks from inktober. So much creativity! Yellow Butterfly caught my attention and I hope you are enjoying it along with your other reads.
Comment #30: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:25:00
Yellow Butterfly is delightful and captures 1981 perfectly. I hope you get a chance to read it. I'll be reviewing it soon.

Wow, what beautiful artwork - you're talented!
I also read Guts this week and loved it, as with all of Raina's books. And I really want to read the new Nevada Barr.
Enjoy your books this week!
Comment #32: Tuesday, November 05, 2019 at 23:27:00
I'll be reading the new Nevada Barr later this week or possibly over the weekend.
