This week has been craaaazy… First of all, my sister was visiting from the US. Then after she left, three friends from the Netherlands and Germany arrived… I have had way too much beer, grandma’s food, restaurant food and just general frolic to be a normal human being this week. So you might gather that not a lot of reading has happened! But… There was bookmail!!!
~ Last Week On The Blog ~
I’m very happy with the discussion post I posted last week! Aside from that, I’ve also reviewed The Golden House which I didn’t quite like. As you can see, the discussion and the review *might* be related 😀
~ Coming Up Next Week~
Thank god I have scheduled so many posts in advance! Otherwise, my week would be really hard! But luckily, this next week is still taken care of. These are the posts I will be sharing with you, and this time they’re both reviews:
~ General Rambling ~
I am so happy State of the ARC took off last week – well, at least a little! I already can’t wait for the next issue that I should be posting on September 27. Although I feel like my progress won’t be too great, because so far? This month has been crazy. But I’m still excited!
And I have something else that’s exciting to share! I got bookmail – The Redemption Of Marvin Fuster by Patrick Sean Lee. The funny thing about this book is that Marvin is kind of a rare name, at least where I live. I only know one Marvin. And that Marvin is from another country. And yet! He happened to be visiting at the time the book arrived! What are the odds?
#Bookmail!!! The funniest thing about this is that the name Marvin is kind of rare, especially where I live, but today as I got this book, I have a guest named Marvin visiting and staying with us. What are the odds, right?? 😂 Thank you, Patrick Sean Lee for the #book #mail!!! 🎉🎉🎉 #books #booksta #bookstagram #gira #instabook #bookish #arcs #arc #reviewcopy #bookbloggers #bookblogger #literary #reading #read #gotbooks
~ Little Book Haul ~
I have hauled a few great books this week. It’s Just Nerves is a selection of essays about disability, and I just couldn’t let it go! I have already read this book, and I think everyone should – just because we don’t know some things about disability and its struggles, and we should. I am participating in a blog tour, so I will be posting my review of It’s Just Nerves on October 20th.
I also got Morning Star from my sister – an actual physical copy! The annoying part about that though… Was that Golden Son didn’t arrive in time for my sister to pick it up for me. So I have read the first book… And I have the third book. Hmm. Bit of a dilemma 😀 Luckily, my sister should be sending me the second book soon. I just hope the post office doesn’t lose my copy. Cause I can’t wait to continue reading the Red Rising series!
As for the other two, The Feed is a review copy from Edelweiss that I’ve requested months ago and nearly forgot. It’s about a post-apocalypic, uh, sort of Facebook? Hah. It comes out in March. And Breaker and the Sun was temporarily free on Amazon, and it was highly recommended by a few bloggers, so I hurried to grab it too. It’s about a Vietnam vet and an Asian immigrant. Sounds interesting for sure.
~ In The Bookish Community ~
I know I saw some more great posts this week! But I think I’ve lost some of the link T_T So I’m sharing what I’ve got!
Deb @ The Book Stop shares a post about how negative reviews can be turned into positive feedback! Read about how one author responds to negative reviews by writing a better book
Cat @ Let The Pages Reign shares her pet peeve about how authors (and sometimes even bloggers) get annoying when trying to get you to read their content
Liz @ Janepedia shares a post about how to be (or not to be) an ally of autistic people
So what have you been reading and hauling? Has it been a good week?
