Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (13)

So this is completely random, but you know that thing where you hear about or see something for the first time, and suddenly it starts popping up everywhere? And usually it's a song or a book or something relatively normal, right? For me it's half-woman/half-spider creatures. You wouldn't think it would be that common, but I have recently come across it in a book, a graphic novel, and a TV show....
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (12)

It's officially December! It's also a high of 81 degrees F where I live today. But you won't hear me complaining! That just means I still get to go out in my flip-flops and tanktops. (Except when I go to the bookstore. Why must they keep it so freezing cold? It's not like books are going to go bad!) I don't have anything holiday-ish planned for the blog, but I am doing couple posts about my...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (11)

Happy late Thanksgiving/unofficial start of the holiday season to everyone! Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? Did everyone survive Black Friday without being trampled? Did anyone actually go out at midnight on Thanksgiving? (Don't even get me started about that. Pretty soon Black Friday will be starting in August.) I actually did not even leave the house on Friday. No thank you, mobs. I'm...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (10)

I know everyone keeps saying things like this, but I can't believe November is almost over! It feels like December has snuck up on me before I could get done any of the things I needed to before the coming month. *Sigh* I did have a pretty good bookish week though! I tried something new, I read some good books, I spent a few hours at the bookstore, and I delivered on the sci-fi reviews I...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (9)

Hello, my lovely fellow readers and bloggers! Unfortunately, once again, I don't have a whole lot to say. It was another slow week on the blog, only three posts, but two of them were about AMAZING books that you should totally go read, so that counts for something, right? It was also kind of a slow, but still exhausting, week off the blog. I think the most exciting part of it would either have to...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (8)

This past week was a slow week on the blog for me. I didn't participate in Top Ten Tuesday because the topic just wasn't for me, and I didn't end up figuring out a good discussion post like I had wanted to. And I'm not doing NaNo, so I can't even blame my lack of posts on that :-P I've actually just been distracted by some things in my real life, but I'm still trying to get at least one meme and...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (7)

Book-wise, I had a good week. I read seven (yes, SEVEN!) books, most of them at least pretty good. I also got a lot of free ebooks, including numerous ones off my Amazon wishlist that I've wanted for a while that went on sale. Plus, I found a whole bunch of books I really want to read, which doesn't sound like a good thing considering my TBR was already a mile long, but, truth be told, my TBR is...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (6)

My past week was fairly uneventful, but, unfortunately, I have a stressful one (well, probably more than one, but we'll see) coming up. I've gotten as far ahead on posts as I could, so they're still scheduled to go up even if I'm not on the computer. (Don't you just love being able to do that?!) For some reason though I always end up with a few typos and issues that I don't catch until the post...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (5)

This was a really slow, unproductive book week for me. I ended up starting three different books, all books I want to read, but they just weren't what I *felt* like at the time. I've hit another "I have 500 books and nothing to read" slump. (That sure didn't take long -_-) And I'm very much a mood reader. If I'm not in the right mood for a certain type of book, it can ruin what would otherwise be...
 

Updates & Info: The Weekly Update (4)

I don't have a lot of real life news, but I did have a pretty good book week. And I'm in a very circus-y mood now! Even though they weren't really about circus, The Dark Carousel series I read this week had a lot of mentions of circuses and carnivals, both of which I love--the fun kinds and the creepy kinds. Something about them is just so inherently creepy without even trying. Maybe The Immortal...
