Have you ever had one of those weeks were you don’t remember what happened once it’s over? That’s me right now. I kept getting my days mixed up, parent teacher interviews, chiropractor appointments, and my kids had no school on Friday…… basically I was a scatterbrain! But in my bookish life things were pretty good! I finished one (very large) book and have gotten through half of another. Here’s what I read:
BOOKS I’VE FINISHED THIS WEEK:
RENEGADES by Marissa Meyer <—– (Full review) 3.5 stars
This is the first book that has ever made me say that I love Super Hero’s! The super hero’s was the element of the book that I was most unsure about and it ended up being the one thing that I loved the most. I did have a few issues with it, specifically related to pace and balance between plot and world/character building, but all in all I really enjoyed this one!
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING:
I’m FINALLY getting back to the Zodiac series!!!! I finished book one a couple of months ago but for some reason didn’t continue. It took quite a few pages to get back into the story though because it’s so complicated and I hadn’t really remembered how things ended. But things picked up quickly and I loved getting back into this world with all of its political intrigue and zodiac systems.
OTHER BOOKISH NEWS:
TOP 5 TUESDAY
This weeks topic was the top 5 reasons why I blog – not entirely bookish subject but something we can all relate to. It was nice to kind of go back to my roots and remember why I started this all in the first place. Next weeks topic is the Top 5 books/series that need a spinoff! The list is long people!
THE SKY IS FALLING!
Not only did I do a TAG but I did a discussion, AND they happened in the same week! I rarely do either so for them to happen in the same week is unheard of! At the beginning of the week I did the end of the year book tag and then towards the end of the week I talked about reading reviews before you buy a book. See what I mean – it’s been a weird week!
A PLANNED HIATUS IS COMING
This is something that’s been on my mind a lot lately. I don’t have blogger burn out or anything, but Christmas is coming! The closer it gets, the busier I seem to be. I’m having a hard time balancing life, responding to comments, writing and more. I haven’t decided how I’m going to do this yet though. To you bloggers out there, what have you done in the past? I can’t decide if I want to take time off and not blog at all or just cut it down to a few times a week. This is my first experience with blogging in December so any advice of what you have done in the past, what works for you and what doesn’t, would be greatly appreciated!!! THOUGH – I’m seeing a lot on Twitter about “Blogmas” – what is this?? Can someone fill me in? Is this just a “post every day up until Christmas” thing like on YouTube? I can’t figure it out lol!
GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!
Wow! I’ve done a couple giveaways this year and they had a good turn out, but nothing like this! I just wanted to extend a huge thank you to all of my followers for getting to this point! The winners were chosen, and both have picked out their books (both of which ended up choosing books that I’ve had on my wish list for a while personally lol) Congrats to Ilsa and Kristi! Enjoy 🙂
So that was my week. A little weird and a little all over the place. How was your week? Did you read anything you want to rave about? Have any suggestions for a Christmas hiatus? I’m all ears bookworms!
Until next time, happy reading!
