Now. Next.

TELL ME TUESDAY is a feature cooked up by my BBBB (Best Blogging Buddy, Bittersweet) from PLEASE FEED the BOOKWORM and I, after having our brains mashed by a Twitter party. It is a weekly, or bi-weekly feature (depending on your personal reading schedule), where we ask you what you are reading now, and why, and what you will be picking next from your TBR pile, and why. We are always curious to know why people read what they read.

I am combining my TMT and my ARC August Challenge third week update this Tuesday because I only finished one ARC.

Long story made short; finished the Middle Grade, Dash, last week, and it was FOUR STARS by the way, I was so pleased with myself because it was my sixth book read for ARC August! I had started Floating Boy and the Girl Who Couldn't Fly, right away, and was sure I would have it finished by now and be able to squeeze in two more before the first of September, for a total of nine ARCs. WRONG.

The making a long story short part is don't waste your time on feeling obligated to a new indie author, just because you are nice. You might end up being more invested in their book's success than they are and realize you have done alot for nothing, and wasted time you could have been reading other books of authors who would appreciate the attention. Live and learn. However, I have my SKULLBLOGGERY buddy, Brittersweet, and she will listen to me complain and we will be back out kicking book blogging butt tomorrow.

Anyway, I should have Floating Boy finished by tomorrow...

No matter what happens Brittersweet, Pili, and I will be cheering each other on until the bitter end of ARC August.

Sometimes Brittersweet gets the *crickles*
Drop by and give Pili from IN LOVE with HANDMADE a peek because she is our wonderful feature follower. We luff her.


  1. Sorry to hear things have gona awry with the indie author... I support and love quite a few indies!

    I am halfway a lot of book and I hope I can sit down and finish a few of them today, once I'm done icing cupcakes!

    1. I love a bunch of indies, too. I am just not going to be falling for the "feel sorry for me" pitch again because I think it might be the first sign of a lazy author. :)

  2. I am totally the crickle bwhahahaha! *super wuzzies*

  3. Oh don't fall for the feel sorry thing, that is never a good sign. My best advice when it comes to indie is do your research. There are a lot of great indie authors out there, but be leery of the ones who don't have a lot of review :) I can't believe that August is almost over. Yikes! Best of luck finishing up your challenge.


Thank-you for dropping by! I love to chat, so comments get a lot of love.
