So remember how I complained last Sunday about the lawn mower in the mornings? Well this past week, either the person below or next to me (I was half asleep, I just know it was someone very nearby) decided 9 in the morning would be the perfect time to drill into the walls -_-
Anyway, that's about it for last week.
*Update: It's 9 in the morning right now as I type this, and someone is... sawing something? On the roof? Oh good, now they're banging on the roof. Like, ON the actual roof. I don't even know what all this noise is, but what is wrong with people???!*
*9:20 - Is that... is that actually a lawn mower too? Or a leaf blower? And it keeps sounding like an elephant is being dropped on the roof, it's so loud the walls even shake. Oh my goodness, now someone is singing. Have I woken up in the Twilight Zone? Because this shit can't be real.*
Oh no, it’s starting—ARC MADNESS. Well, review copy madness, since they’re not all ARCs. And ok that may be a bit of an exaggeration since I know some bloggers have like 50 and I have 6, but 6 at once is a lot for me! I don’t like to put them off, so I pressure myself to read them all immediately… but I’m also a mood reader. And one of them, believe it or not, is a contemporary with no fantasy or sci-fi (What?! I know. It’s so not my genre, but I wanted it.), so I really have to be in the right mood for that. Plus I’ve taken on quite a bit of non-blogging/bookish stuff at the moment and *gasp* just haven’t felt like reading for the past few days. The good news though is that none of these are from Netgalley, so my feedback percentage is safe :-P That means I don’t have to rush and stress myself.
But can anyone tell me, am I supposed to check that “send to publisher” box when I submit a review on Edelweiss? Also, I put my blog as my organization/company/whatever it was. Should I have left that blank? Why is Edelweiss so damn confusing?
Books I Finished:
I LOVED Rises the Night and will post my 4.5 star review soon. I think it was also the first book I’ve read that was set in Italy. I also loved The Bleeding Dusk. This is becoming one of my favorite series. I find that funny and surprising since, had I read them a year ago, I probably would’ve hated them considering I used to hate historical books. Unleash the Storm was a kind of bittersweet but great finale to one of my favorite series, but it assuaged the pain a bit when I found out there is going to be another book in the same world but about my favorite character in the series.
Song of the Week:
“Glowing in the Dark” by The Girl and the Dreamcatcher – I actually first saw/heard this on Disney Channel and thought it was part of a movie. (I’d watch this if it were lol.) It’s a good song, and the video is a little creepy.
