I totally thought I had my whole entry prepped for today, I don’t think I’ve read so many articles or weeded through the useless to the useful to the ‘oh-that’s-interesting’ and the ‘that’s-funny’.
I’m tired, do not disturb until after the Tucker Max review 😉
What you might’ve missed…
- A huge round up from the last two weeks of books finds. I promise I’ll never compile that way.
- I created a post in Pirate-speak for Talk Like a Pirate Day!
- Midnight secrets and lies in Delia’s Shadow.
- Finally made up a review for the first book in the series of Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia.
What I’m up to…
Making alternative plans on how I read my books. I’ve decided to skip the audiobooks for a while. I’m not commuting as much, so listening to books in the car isn’t as doable. I guess I’m back to print (because that sounds so terrible ;))
Blogger Bookish Rants and Raves…
- Nafiza has a positive review of Crankenstein.

My Thoughts of the Week…
Apparently people post more than I anticipate and I need to start keeping up. Thankfully for Bloglovin’ it makes my weeding process easier because I check out titles and blurps of the content. Even if it sounds interesting I’ll check it out and I may not share with the rest of the world, but I could be just commenting on how much I agree or disagree with the post. I’m liking my videos though.. I’m sorry if you don’t 😦
