Good day and thanks for joining us! Grab a cuppa, pull up a chair, and let’s talk about this week.
It has been a rather busy week for me offline, which didn’t really leave me a lot of time for reading. 😦 Which is bad because I’m currently participating in a read-a-thon! It’s the last day and I only finished half of the books that I wanted to read. Oh well! Best not to put pressure on myself when it comes to reading, right? 🙂 At least I’ve got a review buffer going on, so the pressure to review isn’t that high.
I also haven’t been very good in replying to comments and commenting back. 😦 I’m so sorry, you lovely people! I’ll get on it soon!
This week on RMA:
- I reviewed Ever by Gail Carson Levine, which didn’t turn out to be a really great book, but not a bad one either. Probably closer to “meh” on my scale.
- I revealed the new covers for the first and second books in the Elements series by Mia Marshall. This is one of my FAVOURITE series, so I was so excited to participate in the reveal! 😀 (Also: MAAAAAAAAAAAC!)
- I talked about my audiobook habits, and how just sitting around listening to one would get pretty boring for me.
- For Instalove 101, I shared my story and thoughts on what I call “Travelbug Instalove.”
- I reviewed The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, which I found pretty draggy, but with interesting characters.
- Kezia compares insta-love to insta-attraction, and while I stick my tongue out at insta-love, I can handle stories with insta-attraction. There is a difference!
- Stormy reexamines the horror genre, and includes good points about different kinds of horror and gore.
- Francine talks about tragic love stories. While I do love fluffy and cute love stories, these kinds of stories can also be really good.
- Helen wonders how you control your TBR list. Answer? I don’t. Haha! Kidding, I prune it every so often.
- Charlotte discusses how authors use foreign languages incorrectly in their stories, and stresses the importance of research!
- Amy examines the relationship between Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, and its development over the series. Ultimately hitting the points why I love them. 🙂
- Briana talks about publishing interships, and how to find one! :O
- Josephine asks if blurbs still matter to you, and they sure do to me.
- Angie asks if you are an introvert or an extrovert. According to her, I may be an ambivert! Oooh, I like that term!
- Rinn discusses why insta-love just doesn’t work, and I agree with pretty much that whole post.
- Trish talks about the pressure from giveaways, which I’ve felt!
So how are you, my lovely readers? How has your week been? 🙂
