What’s the word, humming-bird? Another relaxed week on the blog, but very busy week for me offline. I haven’t gotten around to replying to comments or commenting on other blogs for the week, and I feel a little guilty! I promise I’ll get on that once my offline activities stop leaving me so tired!
I hope your week was more relaxed than mine!
This week on RMA:
- I reviewed Arcadia’s Gift by Jesi Lea Ryan, and found it interesting. However, I did find the pacing odd at the very end and have no real interesting to continue the series.
- I discussed why I don’t like brooding book boyfriends, and prefer the nicer guy in books. Lovely friends also commented about the difference between the bad boy and a real jerk in the male lead characters.
- I reviewed The Memory Game by Sharon Sant, and had my feelings stomped on like a grape at a winery. It was so well-written, but also full of raw pain and emotion.
Blog-o-plane, now boarding!
- Amy discusses what it takes for her to like romance in a book. As usual, she hits all the points that I need in a romance story, with perfect examples to boot!
- Rinn shares some of her bookish habits, some of which I have too! Like preferring paperbacks over hardcovers. GASP!
- Charlene kicks off her new feature, The Refined Reader. If you like books and history and the Victorian era, check it out!
- Kelley talks about book promo campaigns, and what works (and doesn’t work) for her. Promos are fine, but spamming it all over the place? Not so much.
- Emily asks if we are too harsh with YA heroines, and how easily we call them out on their character flaws.
- Charlotte confesses that she is not a book crier. Me neither, but I am a movie crier!
- Trish asks how you keep track of plotlines in series. My answer? I don’t! Haha, just kidding. I might need to brush up on the previous book’s Wikipedia entries. 😛
- Chiara talks about what criteria books need to meet for her to give it a five-star rating.
So how are you, my lovely readers? How has your week been? 🙂
