Buongiorno! Last week’s weekly digest was put aside in favour of the monthly digest, and because I just felt relatively lazy. It happens, folks. 😛 Just like my current reading slump. I have a challenge to do, I have my books on my night stand and my Kindle’s fully charged. But I still can’t seem to bring myself to read something.
I tried reading a freebie that seemed relatively interesting, but the main character did something that annoyed me right off the bat. Then when I went to the next page, the text was all weirdly formatted and garbled, so I just decided to abandon it. It doesn’t seem like a huge loss. If the MCs were going to be like that for the whole book, I think I would have gone insane.
Here’s hoping for a more productive reading week!
This week on RMA:
- I reviewed the Matched trilogy by Ally Condie, which I found pretty… Well, boring. “Meh” is the term, I think.
- I discuss my hesitation for starting series, and also I wonder if you readers have any standalone titles to recommend, let me know!
- I posted about the reading challenge where I try to clear out my TBR, a daunting task. 😛
- I reviewed Flight by Lindsay Leggett, which I found pretty cool.
Blog-o-plane, now boarding!
- Asti, Kelley, and Leanne have come together to bring a super awesome new blog called Oh, the Books! into the world. Check it out, for much fun abounds!
- Danielle asks if it’s ethical for someone to review a book that they beta read.
- Briana has a very helpful post on how to prepare for publishing internship interviews, with questions that are also pretty relevant to non-publishing interviews!
- Helen talks about life-long habits, different spellings, and the double-space.
- Renae discusses recommendations, and how she ended up assessing those recommended books.
- Joséphine lists the trouble with eBooks, but also her positive thoughts on them.
- Trish asks what do you do when you don’t feel like reviewing a book.
- Charlotte drops some advice on how to get through a book-buying ban. Ctrl + S, everyone. Ctrl + S.
- Lisa asks what you do when a book just ends up as just… Fine. Just fine, nothing special in the book.
So how are you, my lovely readers? How has your week been? 🙂
