My Week in Links

This week marked my first full week at the Danville Register & Bee, and as you can guess, it was a little busy. I didn’t make the time to write anything extensive this week, so I’m just going to do a wrap up of things I’ve been doing.


Here’s what I wrote:


In addition to being very fun to write about, I made the center of the front page with this article!

USDA, Chatham to hold public meeting to discuss rehabilitation projects

New chapter begins for Pittsylvania County Public Library Director

New traffic signals come to accident-prone intersection

Mount Hermon, Gretna library locations expanding to better serve communities

Residents speak out on county tax rates

Business with high-dollar inventory rallies for tax change

In addition to writing a bunch of stuff for work, I also finished two books and wrote the book reviews. You’ll see the first one of those, There Will Be Stars by Billy Coffey, on Monday morning. I’m trying to work ahead so that I don’t get so behind on book reviews. I know I haven’t been getting reviews out very regularly, so I’ve set myself a schedule for reviews whether they’re ARC’s or library acquisitions.The next book review you’ll see after that is The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead, which I can’t wait to share with you. I absolutely loved it, and I’d love to talk to you guys about it.

Songs I’ve been jamming to (with YouTube links!):

Outlaws – Alessia Cara

Hercules – Sara Bareilles

Sit Still, Look Pretty – Daya

What Are You Waiting For? – My Red and Blue

I also started a rewatch of Gilmore Girls on Netflix, for two reasons: One, I love the show. Two, we should be getting the revival soon and I need to be capital R-Ready. They announced the name of it yesterday, and I can’t wait for A Year in the Life.

I realized last night that it’s definitely going to hurt when they do their parts about Richard, since Edward Herrman passed away. Emily’s impassioned first-season declaration after Richard’s heart attack that “I demand to go first” had me tearing up last night as I watched the episode. It’s going to break my heart in the reboot, and I’m honestly excited for it.  If you want to see me talk more about Gilmore Girls, I’m tweeting my way through the series, and would love to talk about it with you! Follow me @CandidCeillie and let’s talk about it.

That’s about all I’ve been working on and doing, but I hope you have a fabulous weekend and new week, folks!
