Well, I was able to resist for a week, but now I’m back to my old ways. I didn’t get to go to my bookstore, but heck, my trusted Amazon account is just one click away!
The past week has been a blur of late nights at work. On top of that, I’ve also been sick. I’m glad I was able to schedule some posts ahead of time otherwise, you might not have seen much of me. I did visit some, though nearly as I’d liked.
This week should be good, so expect to see me often. I’m dedicating this weekend to writing some reviews, because God knows, I’m behind again. I’ve read some, too, but mostly short novels and fast reads so nothing substantial.
I read 25 books last month, 14 of which I’ve already reviewed. I have 11 books that I’ve yet to write a review, including Red Rising and Golden Son. Oh boy. I’m going to have a tough time writing those babies.
I bought 25 books this month, and received 1 book for review. I downloaded 4 books from Net Galley and have read and reviewed 2. I need to finish reading The Minnow by Diane Sweeney so I can review the book. It’s another one of those Aussie wonders.
I bought 12 books for my Kindle and have read most of them. You need to understand that my Kindle is my Guilty Pleasure bookshelf. I don’t let anyone see what’s in it. Anyway, about 8 of those are the Amour et Chocolate series by Laura Florand. And you all know how much I’ve been obsessed with this series in the last few weeks. I also bought The Beautiful Series by Christina Lauren, and Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire. Phew. I spent so much money last month!
I had three five-star reads for January: A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra, Red Rising and Golden Son by Pierce Brown.
