It is Henna Day, which is a good thing, because it's another hot day in LA and the henna feels cool on my head. Autumn is my favorite season, but it usually takes Los Angeles awhile to get the memo, weather-wise. Sometimes it stays hot here until nearly Halloween, though it's supposed to cool off a bit this week. I've been buying pumpkin products at Trader Joe's (pumpkin butter, pumpkin soup), but I won't really feel like eating them until the daytime high dips below 80.

I finally finished reading Code Name Verity. I liked it a lot, though it had some pacing/structural issues. This turned out to be a feature rather than a bug, as I'd suspected, but for me it made the book more enjoyable in retrospect than while actually reading much of it.

Last night's Doctor Who was my favorite of the season so far.

Meanwhile I'm still revising the Jo book. Much of the revision consists of fairly minor tweaks, but one chapter requires new scenes and research, so I'm trying not to bog down on that. Hoping to finish the revisions in the next few weeks.

I found Code Name Verity got a lot more exciting towards the end, so I really LOVED it at the end, but only liked it at the beginning. I think that's why people are so enthusiastic about it, because you remember the end more than the beginning of a book, of course. Still, it's a lot better than most other books!
