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!

I am really sick this week, and have been for about 3 weeks now, so I was going to sit it out, but I decided, what the hell. I will just keep it kind of laid back this time around and see what I can accomplish. I am not going to set any hard and fast goals, just going to participate as best I am able and see what I can get done. We will see how that goes. I am going to make every effort to do as many challenges as possible, read as much as I can, and make the Twitter chats.
It’s that time again! Bout of Books 11 starts midnight tonight!!!! I have been sick and hopefully I will be well enough to participate fully.
Taken from the Bout of Books website:
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. Read more...(153 words, 2 images, estimated 37 secs reading time)
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? Read more...(120 words, 2 images, estimated 29 secs reading time)
Well, I know, it has been dangerously quiet here lately. No, I have not stopped reading. No, I have not stopped blogging. But, it tends to get a bit hectic around here during the summer, with a houseful of kids, one of whom hates the fact that she is not in school right now because she yearns for the structured, carefully planned out days that her classroom provided and that mommy stinks at trying to replicate for her at home.
But, hark! I received an email and saw a bunch of hubbub on the interwebs about a service that gave me the means to springboard a new R3 post and I wanted to run with it. Read more...(831 words, 2 images, estimated 3:19 mins reading time)
02. How did you start book blogging? What got you interested in starting, were there particular blogs that influenced or encouraged your decision? (If you don’t have a book blog, are you interested in starting one?)
It may sound weird, but the first trigger was getting a Nook tablet from a friend for Christmas that year. It got me back to reading again and involved in online book communities, which led to the friendship that ultimately inspired my book blogging journey.
