I do have lots of bookish things to share though, so I'll just skip right to that!
First of all, DISNEY GOT THE FILM RIGHTS TO THE PAPER MAGICIAN AND I AM VERY UNHAPPY ABOUT THIS. I feel bad for saying that because it’s great for authors to get their books made into movies, it’s like the ultimate dream come true for them. But if you’d read my post about why I don’t watch movie adaptations, and if you’ve also read my review of The Paper Magician, then you understand why this is a nightmare for me! THEY’RE GOING TO RUIN THE IMAGE I HAVE IN MY HEAD OF ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE CHARACTERS. I will spend the rest of my life cautiously trying to avoid ever seeing a photo or hearing the name of whatever actor you get, Disney. I WON’T LET YOU TAKE EMERY FROM ME.
Second of all, and in better news, I got auto-approved by my favorite publisher on Netgalley :-D *happy dance*
Third, I found out I can get backlisted ebooks from another publisher I get ARCs from which is also :-D *happy dance* because I have a bunch of their books on my TBR from before I even started reviewing for them. It also means I can binge read some series which is the thing I miss most since I’ve started reading ARCs!
As a side note, I don’t know if these things sound braggy, I just get genuinely excited, and I like to share my excitement with you guys because you all understand and because I wouldn’t even be getting these things if it weren’t for the awesome community that has been supportive since Day 1. Plus I can’t afford a lot of books, and even though I didn’t even know it was possible to get them free when I started this blog, they’re turning out to be super helpful. So I’m extremely grateful! (Not saying anyone else isn’t. Just expressing my own gratitude.)
Back on track, fourth, I’m getting braver! I’m actually requesting from Edelweiss instead of just taking ones that you can download immediately. It was stupid for me to worry so much. The worst that can happen is I get denied and therefore don’t get the book. But if I don’t even request, then I definitely don’t get the book. In other words, I’ve already been rejected three times in one week, haha, but at least I don’t have regret for not trying!
Books I Received for Review:
Books I Finished:
Morning Glories was funny, but that was pretty much the only thing I liked about it. I posted a mini review on GR if you want to see my thoughts. Unfortunately The Other Side of Gravity wasn’t for me either. At least I liked The Labyrinthians :-)
Song of the Week:
“We Don’t Have to Dance” by Andy Black – I stumbled upon this randomly on YouTube, but… I think I’m in love, guys. With the song, the voice, and the guy ;-) I’ve been using listenonrepeat which keeps track of how times the video plays and… is it healthy to have listened to the same song over 250 times in four days?
In Case You Missed It:
– I asked you all how much science you like in your science fiction.
– I reviewed Chasing Sunrise by Lex Chase, a character driven, paranormal romance with a cross-dressing MC who breaks stereotypes.
– I reviewed Eerie by C.M. McCoy, a quirky YA paranormal romance.
