I’ve kind of been in a mood lately. I haven’t been feeling great, I’m so stressed about so many things, I’m anxious about other things, and now this Net Neutrality issue is making everything worse. I mean, what’s going to happen to our whole book blogging community if it gets repealed? (I know that’s not the only thing that would be affected, but the list of things and people that would be affected is too long for me to include them all.) Everything I’ve read leads me to believe emails/faxes/online services/etc. are easy to ignore and therefore not the best way to contact a Congressperson, but a phone call seems intimidating, so I don’t even know what to do. And none of it seems like it would even make a difference. Am I freaking out for nothing? I’ve read a bunch of articles and explanations to try and make sure I understand it correctly, but who even knows.
And speaking of internet, mine has been a mess lately. Taking 10 minutes to open a single page, wi-fi cutting off and on, only half-loading pages, etc. It’s driving me crazy and making my tennis elbow worse having to refresh pages 10 times to make them work. It has taken me like a full hour just to put the finishing touches on this post -_- So if I’m not doing a good job of bloghopping at the moment, this is probably why.
Anyway, let me know if you have any thoughts on this Net Neutrality thing. On with the bookish stuff now…
Remember that giveaway I won but then months passed so I thought my prize was never going to come? Well it finally arrived!
Why yes, I do have a vase of dried flowers to match every book, why do you ask? :-P
Books I Received for Review:
11/19/17: I got Unbury Carol from NetGalley—wasn’t sure I’d get that one, so yay :-) Curses, Foiled Again is from NineStar Press.
Books I Finished:
11/19/17: Lovesick Gods was amazing; I loved it! The Vampire Lestat was great too, even though it did seem to take forever for me to get through. It’s going to another long “review” with lots of thoughts, just like my review for Interview was.
11/26/17: Curses, Foiled Again was a semi-dark but overall sweet and fun read. The Consumption of Magic was funny and sweet and great but also a little heavy, like the others in the series.
What I’m Loving:
This week, what I’m loving is…
“Let’s Face It I’m Cute” by 11 Acorn Lane
I discovered a new song, and a new genre (electro swing) thanks to my favorite webcomic, Bang! Bang! BOOM!
In Case You Missed It:
– I reviewed The Night Realm by Annette Marie, an interesting UF with really cool magic.
– I did the “Longest Book” tag and talked about long books.
– I reviewed Lovesick Gods by Amanda Meuwissen, an amazing M/M book with an adorable superhero-supervillain romance.
– I reviewed Smoke City by Keith Rosson, a fantasy/literary fiction crossover w/ flawed but likeable characters.
