Seriously, it is okay. I am but one person in a sea of readers. Most of who probably have better taste than I! There is no need to come on over to my review (or anyone's) at Goodreads and tell me how much of an idiot you think I am. It will not change my opinion about the book but it may change someone's opinion about you. A bad review is also never a reason To Start A Petition to force Goodreads to change their TOS to suit you.
I love books, I love authors, I love to read, to review and I love nothing more than to spread the word about books. But I'm not always going to like your book. In fact, I will probably dislike at least one thing about it because I'm a bit of a jerk like that and that's okay too. There are very few books that I think are perfect.The first one that comes to mind is Geek Love by Katherine Dunn. It is my comfort read. I have read it numerous times and it always makes me feel magical.
I adore that weird book so much and, whoa, would you look at…
I've been on vacation and we have drafty old windows so we've been doing a lot of this.
Since it's been ten below, I hope you'll understand!
Happy 2018 Everybody!
So, it's a brand new year and I am not making any resolutions or promises and I'm not signing up for any challenges besides the GR one because I am doomed to fail. Instead I'm planning to add some better self care routines into my life and that includes blocking out time for reading each and every day and sticking to some sort of blogging schedule but as of today I still haven't figured out what they may be. I plan to better focus my time on things that I love doing instead of spreading myself too thin. I'm hoping to draft a post a day and stay away from Netgalley and instead read whatever I want. I'm a total mood reader and reading on a schedule always throws me into a funk and 2017 was no exception. Sometime around October I fell into a slump which caused me to ignore my queue, my…
Hello my bookish friends! Top Ten Tuesday has a new host so be sure to link up over at That Artsy Reader Girl. The creators over at The Broke and the Bookish are closing their doors for now. I'm going to try to be a semi-consistent contributor. But as always, I make no promises.
Today's topic is Top Ten Bookish Resolutions/Goals.
I probably won't keep any of these just like last year but a girl can dream, right?
1. Read Only the Things I Love I'm pretty sure I said this last year but it didn't happen. I visited Netgalley to post an overdue review and suddenly ended up requesting 10 more. Ugh. I think I've learned my lesson once and for all. Reading under pressure sucks all of the joy out of reading. And I still have 8 left . . . No more Netgalley! I am convinced that site is run by the devil!
Of my five stars reads only two of them were review books and neither were from Netgalley. Hmmmm.
