I am going to sit here and assume that most of my readers do not live under a rock. I am going to assume that at least some of you have heard about the Ellora’s Cave insanity. I had stumbled across this post on Dear Author just last night on Facebook, of all places. Then to learn that this particular book blogger is being SUED for providing information and taking a stand, encouraging others to do the same. That just sets my short hairs on the back of my neck on edge, my friends. It just makes me angry.

First off, let me let you know that I know that the blog has been eerily quiet. Life happened and things have been crazy with the Ninja Turtle having lots of appointments and school starting and just general life happens kind of stuff. I have a fair number of reviews drafted and I am working on getting those all scheduled out this week so that there is not another period where the blog goes dark.

Books: Immortals by Ednah Walters –
I really enjoyed book one and overlooked editing in the first because it was an ARC, but the editing was bad in this one too, and this was a finished copy. I hope the author gets the editing bit together because I really want to love this series.
I was able to attend about half of the Twitter party before I fell ill again and had to retreat to my bed. I missed out on both challenges because I just was not feeling well but I got to chat with some cool people on Twitter for a few minutes and read pretty much a whole book while I convalesced. Today will be a better day, For Sure!

Well, and away we go. Officially Bout of books started nearly 10 hours for me.
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 18th and runs through Sunday, August 24th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 11 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
Well, I am off to a fairly slow start. I did finish The Archived by Victoria Schwab, which I LOVED! I mean, so good, you have no idea. It got off to a really slow start and that almost turned me off, but when the book picked up, it really picked up. The review is to come, so be on the lookout.
I have started Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Mass and it is a bit different from the other books in the series.
I am about 28% of the way into The Unbound by Victoria Schwab and so far, it is really good.
I participated in this event last year and had so much fun, I am so mad at myself for almost missing a chance to sign up since it starts TOMORROW!!!!
Anyway, so yeah, I am participating this year. We will not discuss my Netgalley percentage. It’s better than it was before the wellness challenge, but I havent read a danged thing for like, 2 months, basically, since the wellness challenge ended. So I have to get this under control!
My goal is to try to get through 8 ARCs this month. I have a ton, and this is barely a dent, but I need to start somewhere, right?
