And I even have a bit of good news this week! So I have this *other* laptop that was the first laptop I ever owned and served me well for like six years (ok maybe not *well* for the last couple years, but it worked, at least) before it finally broke. I figured my unsaved stuff was most likely lost forever, but I finally, some years later, decided to take a look at the hard drive, and lo and behold, the hard drive is in perfect condition! I had a bunch of poetry on there that wasn't saved anywhere else, but now I've got it transferred over :-) I was going to regale you all with a poem, but then I chickened out.
Other than that, not too much happened during my week.
I’m still dying to hear back about whether I’ll get Girl in the Shadows from Netgalley because it’s the sequel to Girl on a Wire, which I loved, and because CIRCUS. Each day that goes by, I get more and more sure I’m going to be rejected. Does anyone else feel that way when they request?
In other news, I might finally give up on TTT for good soon (the topics just aren’t working for me and it doesn’t seem very social anymore) and start posting book reviews on Tuesdays and Thursdays rather than Thursdays and Fridays. My blog always slumps on the weekends, and I want to figure out if it’s just the fact that it’s reviews I’m posting (since I think it’s pretty universal that those get less interaction) or if it has something to do with the actual days/schedule.
Books I Received for Review:
Books I Finished:
Thereafter was another thought-provoking book in the Afterlife series. Wish for Me, however, was too alpha male, romance-y. But A Criminal Magic! I’ve dying to read this ever since I saw it, so why did I wait so long?! I haven’t quite finished but plan to today, and so far it’s really well-written and a great read.
Song of the Week:
“I Want to Know Your Plans” by Say Anything – I didn’t find any new music this week, so here’s a random older song I like.
In Case You Missed It:
– I shared book covers with alcoholic drinks on them.
– I asked your opinion on revamping and reposting book reviews.
– I reviewed The Labyrinthians by J.A. Armitage, a book with a suspenseful plot and likeable characters.
– I reviewed Blood Stain Vol. 1 by Linda Sejic, a quirky, entertaining graphic novel.
