THE SUNDAY POST is a weekly feature hosted by Kimba at the Caffinated Book Reviewer. It is a chance to recap the previous week, share news, showcase books and/or bookish things we have received, and tell about what is coming up on our blog in the next week. You can view the guidelines, HERE
I did my usual TELL ME TUESDAY post.
I have added the TEASER TUESDAY meme to it. I thought it fit perfectly with the TMT theme.
My teaser this week was from A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC...
"Would you miss me?" she asked.
"Like an itch," he shot back.
You can read the entire TMT post, HERE.
I also posted my first STACKING THE SHELVES! I am going to be blogging my monthly book hauls on the last Saturday of each month from now on using the STS meme and link-up.
You can peruse my June book haul, HERE.
I came across Sophia's vlog/blog RAVENS AND WRITING DESKS post about audiobooks via her tweet on Twitter. It was thought provoking and I bookmarked it so I can go back and leave a substantial comment. She asked about our feelings on audiobooks and how/if we use them. You can watch her video and view her blog, HERE.
I am almost finished with A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC and unless it tanks in the last 20% of the story (which I have heard is even more exciting than the rest of the book), it is taking the throne as my favorite book so far this year.
In fact, I have stopped reading everything else so it is the only story in my head.
IN MY THOUGHTS
What happens when you stumble upon something a favorite author (or any author for that matter) says out in social media that is thoughtless? An author tweeted that the reason people have bad things happen to them is because they put negative energies out into the universe. I cringed thinking what someone with depression, or a serious illness would take away and probably internalize from that. I commented asking then why do good people have awful things happen to them. She didn't reply. I have only read one of her books and was planning on getting to the second one in the series I was reading, but her tweet sentiments seem to have dulled my fervor for the series right now. I am hoping that waiting for the final book to come next year, before continuing, will give me enough space to enjoy her stories again. Has something an author has said or done ever impacted your excitement for their books?
I am going to attempt the UNPOPULAR OPINIONS TAG. I saw this on Cait's blog PAPER FURY, and also Faye's vlog for THE SOCIAL POTATO (click on the names and you will be wisked away to their posts). They both have invited anyone interested to join in.
AND... I AM GOING TO START MY REVIEW LISTINGS PAGE!!!!
I know I have said this before, but I am going to get a couple reviews posted! One is a revamp of a review I did when I first started blogging of BLINDED BY THE LIGHT. It was a terrific Dystopian and the review is, by my now veteran blogging standards, lacklustre. I am going to gif it up a bit and add some quotes. I am also on the home stretch with my THE INFINITE review draft. In fact I thought I was going to have it ready by Monday, but Blogger was being a #&$@ yesterday.
I hope you liked the Adventure Time/Sunday Pusheen mash-up.
Have a MAGNIFICENT week!
