Grad school is tough guys. Seriously, over 100 pages on Nazi/Soviet dictatorships is not light reading, in fact, it feels like 10 times the actual number of pages. I already had two papers due and that, in part with general exhaustion is why there’s been a two day hiatus in blogging. Alas, I’m back in the game and I’ve got so much to share with you. Firstly, I’ve been reading some amazing books. I don’t remember the last time I’ve given so many 5 star ratings it’s ridiculous and all in different sub-genres of YA. You will love these books and I can’t wait to get the reviews out there. Many of them are from small publishing houses and some of them you probably have never heard of but they’re definitely something that will enrich and broaden your reading borders.
Yesterday, I got drenched in a monsoon and nearly struck by lightning in a horrendous thunderstorm but I was saved some peace of mind and frustration by an idea that I think you guys will love. Tomorrow, I will blog about 5 book series that inspire writer’s envy. I’ve felt it, you’ve felt it, who hasn’t? But writer’s envy is not all bad, I would argue that it’s even a plus. So if you’re interested in my musings on that or to see just what series I envy, check back tomorrow sometime probably late afternoon.
Upcoming Reviews are as follows and this time in order:
Here are some cool articles, pics, and fun things I stumbled upon while cruising the Internets:
- For those of you who are not strictly YA and love a good paranormal romance Karen Marie Moning, if you don’t know who she is, seriously, seriously, I can’t even express how awesome her books are. If you like faeries, if you like highlanders, if you like druids, if you like very blush-worthy, detailed sexy scenes, you will love her style and her powerful story telling. Anyways, she has been sharing teasers from Burned book 2 in the spinoff from her Fever series. I share these on my Facebook every time she posts. Here is the link to her page: Karen Marie Moning Page
