I don’t even know what to talk about this week. I spent my last two weekly updates talking about gymnastics, and now I got nothin’.
No, really, that’s it for the intro lol. You may proceed to the bookish stuff now!
Seriously, if you haven’t already, everyone please check your spam. I’ve been getting comments from frequent visitors in my spam, almost all of my comments have been going to spam, and I’m not the only blogger who’s been having this problem recently. I think it might finally be getting sorted out and fixed, but check just in case.
In other news, I added sexual orientation tags to my book reviews. So now if anyone wants to find books with bisexual main characters, for example, you can. (By the way, if you’re curious what other tags and info I have for books, you can always find them here on the reviews page, or here on the site map, or you can see the ones for each individual review by clicking the different tabs in that box near the bottom where the blurb is.)
Also, is it just me, or has there been less blog activity this past week? I’ve been exhausted, so I’ve basically just returned visits to anyone who commented on my blog and didn’t get to many extra blogs… is everyone else just exhausted too? Or playing catch-up on life now that the Olympics have ended? Or busy because of the start of school? It’s weird because my visits don’t seem to have gone down, but I feel like I got less comments than usual.
On the bright side, I did get some very nice spam comments, like this one: “I am sure this paragraph has touched all the internet visitors, its really really fastidious piece of writing”
And this one: “A powerful share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a bit analysis on this. And he the truth is bought me breakfast because I found it for him . . . Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic. If potential, as you grow to be expertise, would you thoughts updating your blog with more particulars?”
I have to say, I did not realize I had become the expert on book covers featuring zombies, but hey, I’m just glad I could help out his colleague who was doing analysis on the topic. After all, that is why I blog, to help all the zombie researchers out there.
Books I Received for Review:
Books I Finished:
Good news, A Faerie’s Curse got me out of my reading slump! Bad news, I did not get enough sleep on Sunday night and was feeling run down on Monday. Lol. It’s funny though, when I have a series I love, I almost always pre-order the next ebook and read it ASAP. This was the one time I didn’t because I just had too many ARCs. It worked out for the best though that I waited. As for The Ghost Chronicles, it was good in that I wanted to keep reading, but I had some issues, like unanswered questions and SERIOUSLY ANOTHER BOOK THAT GAVE ZERO INDICATION OF BEING PART OF A SERIES??? I know it has the word “chronicles,” and that confused me when I first saw it, but it’s just… the title. So that’s not an indication. But anyway, I really liked Unhinged and am so excited to have found a new trilogy that I can binge read that I have a feeling might get even better as it goes!

No song this week.
