Where did this week go? And do I keep saying that every week, or do I just feel like I do? xD time has been flying somewhere, and I’m not sure where it goes. I’ve been having some of the busiest weeks lately – taking care of mom’s shop and trying to fulfil all of my blog commitments. Speaking of which! I have created another Instagram for our family’s Etsy shop! Would you mind giving it a follow? Please check out the shop too! This is one of my favorite pictures here:
~ We Need To Talk About Some Books I’m Reading ~
I have started two amazing books this week, and the strange thing? I didn’t expect them to be connected! I can absolutely recommend them both – No Fourth River being a nonfiction memoir of a real life, dealing with some serious domestic abuse growing up, as well as later in life, and then, Cait’s A Thousand Perfect Notes, which actually turned out to be VERY connected to the domestic abuse topic! I love it when books you’re reading at the same time tie together like that, so unexpectedly – does it happen to you? Either way, i can whole-heartedly recommend both of these books already, even thought I haven’t finished them yet!
~ Last Week On The Blog ~
Last week was pretty exciting on the blog, at least in my opinion – I had a review of probably my favorite MG this year so far, Clara Voyant, also a review of a collection of Mexican/South American myths, and lastly – the first post in the series of #NewBloggersWelcome! Why is this new series exciting? Because every month I will be trying to introduce new book bloggers into the community. If you know anyone who has only been blogging one or two months, get them in contact with me and I’ll get them featured 🙂
~ Coming Up Next Week~
Next week I will be posting an exciting double review for Vicious by V.E. Schwab + Real Life Super Heroes (nonfiction!) by Nadia Fezzani. I thought that those topics really stick well together, and it’s a good chance to inform you all about a lesser-known book about a very interesting topic. And, I will also be posting a collab with Erica Robyn @ Erica Robyn Reads, for #NewBloggers 101 – about Litsy! It’s a great bookish social network, so if you’re not familiar with it yet, you can read all about it next week.
~ Little Book Haul ~
This is actually both for last week and this week! Last week I hauled Sleep, Merel, Sleep – I seem to be into MGs lately! And I will be participating in a blog tour for The Caseroom at the end of August. A book for a week – still a haul that I approve of 🙂
~ In The Bookish Community ~
Marija @ Inside My Library Mind shares a useful guide to Edelweiss, which is a great resource! (If you need further reading – I had a post about how to tweak your Edelweiss profile a while back as well!)
Cam @ Camillea Reads shares her not-so-good childhood reading habits, this post really cracked me up!
Clo @ Book Dragons talks in depth about new releases vs backlist books, and the things we don’t really talk about when it comes to our reading choices
Dani @ Perspective of a Writer talks about the strategies she uses to manage commenting back
Danielle @ Books, Vertigo & Tea shares her 10 things she deems as mistakes in her blogging history, which I could relate to a lot!
Krysta @ Pages Unbound shares why she won’t buy books on Amazon – something that has been a relevant conversation around the blogs these weeks
Michelle @ Chell’s Book Ramblings talks about the pressure of book blogging, #relevant!
So how has your week been? And what are you reading? What did you haul?
I’m Evelina and I try to blog about books that matter, with a bit of fun there too! Disability and equality will be topics you see a lot, but there’s also a lot of scifi, fantasy and… GIFs. I’m also the proud founder of #ARCsAnonymous.
