CLOCKWORK ANGEL by Cassandra Clare (sending to Hafsah.)
BETWEEN THE LINES by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer (for fun)
I'm sure I'll get more books this semester, so I'm thinking at the end of the semester I'll do an update picture. Should be interesting to see what books I've accumulated AND if I've read them all because that is my plan. Yet I also have a ton of ebooks.
So, where is your bookshelf picture?
I read a really cute little book a few weeks ago, and I immediately started my review, only getting a few paragraphs into it. I mused over what else to say, but I had nothing else to say. So I shrugged it off and thought I'd write the review later.
Days passed and I still had no words. Eventually I ended up with this:
I'm not going to review this one, even though I did really enjoy it. I just can't get WRITE a review for The Wednesdays for some reason. However, I'll leave you with what I have:And in real life, I was angsting over not writing a review for this book because it was just SO CUTE and I wanted everybody to read it. I finally came to accepting that there are some books I just simply cannot review, and now I need to apply that to my blogging life.
The Wednesdays by Julie Bourbeau is such an interesting little middle grade book. I absolutely adored this one. But I’m a fan of the weird novels, and The Wednesdays is such a weird one.
I love that there are strange little creatures wreaking havoc on Wednesdays. And I love that there is one boy who isn’t necessarily afraid of these Wednesdays and wants to find one when he goes outside on a Wednesday (GAAAASP.)
Guys, this book. It makes my heart smile. But pretty much all middle grade novels I read make my heart smile. I DON’T CARE. MIDDLE GRADE FANGIRL FOR LIFE.
I do highly recommend picking this one up, though. Such a cute story. :)
I like writing long reviews. I like books that make me think. If I can write a critical review, then I'm a happy, happy blogger. But I also like promoting books; I want people to read The Wednesdays by Julie Bourbeau because it seriously is such a cute book that I LOVED.
Yet I work part time (two jobs) + college full time + write whenever the hell I can so I have a really busy schedule.But from now on, I'm going to be posting reviews of books I can actually analyze and write critical (ish) reviews of. I hate calling them critical reviews because I feel as if they aren't critical. Whatever.
Although, a perk of being really busy: I don't angst over views/comments so much. It still makes me sad when I get no comments (and who wouldn't get sad over that?) but now I really just don't care. So it's interesting, at least to me.
- I'm going to worry less about my blog
- I'll only review books that I can actually write reviews for, and not worry when I don't
- Blogging should be fun, not stressful. Blogging should be fun, not stressful. Blogging should be fun, not stressful. (truth.)
