I start with more important matters. CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS OUTRAGE?? NetGalley has cut international reviewers out of the loop. We were never good enough for print ARCs, but now we don’t deserve even eARCs anymore. Read more here.
Another week has flown by, and I am happy to say, this one has finally been less stressful than the past couple have been! My week in a nutshell:
- finally rid of the fever!
- work is still busy, but I think we’ll be doing better now that I’m not sick anymore
- I have no evening class to teach this week!
- a client gave us free concert tickets xD
- I didn’t request any books!! How often does that even happen??
- I won a giveaway! Thank you, Nicole <3 (and Rafflecopter xD)
So the week has been fine, apart from me not actually doing any proper reading cause the only times that I could do it was literally between 0-3 AM. Of course…
~ Last Week On The Blog ~
Last week we had two reviews and one discussion. Happiness is a memoir of actual events – a mother with a dangerously ill infant, trying to save her life (and succeeding). This is the story of the journey. It was uplifting, but not for the feint of heart. Then, I also reviewed The Girl in the Tower, which was beautiful and stronger than The Bear and the Nightingale in so many ways. Strong female characters win! And last but not least, we have the discussion about how I’m afraid I’ll never find such good and epic books as I’ve already read. Come share your opinion with me!
~ Coming Up Next Week~
As you can see, so far I’m sticking with my new plan of review-list-discussion. Hope you’ll enjoy it! I will be posting a review of All Day that I’ve been promising since forever ago. If you’ve read The Hate U Give or Dear Martin, you should read this review. Then, I will post a list of books to go with cocoa and a warm blanket – for pleasant and engaging reading when you need something warm, encouraging and sweet. And also, I will be posting a very relevant discussion! For all those book bloggers who get tired of being told they should just write a book. And also about how we should respect our own identity as bloggers and how that’s an identity that’s complete on it’s own! So I hope you will enjoy.
~ Little Book Haul ~
This time the haul is actually little!!! Would you believe I only hauled two books, and even that happened in two weeks rather than one? I know! I’m pleasantly surprised myself. Anyway, have you read those?
~ In The Bookish Community ~
Terri @ Second Run Reviews talks about how the books she reads reflect who she wants to be
Cam @ Camillea Reads talks about how it’s important to learn to actually read… less
Trang @ Bookidote shares why she loves villains in books so much
Cam @ Camillea Reads shares that buying [print] books is actually a privilege, and not many Westerners realize it
Briana @ Pages Unbound writes about how we should stop stressing about how many books we’ve read this year
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.
