Linking up to The Sunday Post hosted by Kim at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer – a weekly meme where fellow book lovers post updates on life, blog happenings, and their recent book hauls.
Guys. I did a deliciously bookish thing – I just spent a wild Saturday night at the local Barnes & Noble. Probably not the most obviously exciting thing, but I read exclusively on my Kindle so haven’t actually gone to a bookstore in at least a year. I don’t remember the last time I actually bought a physical book…. Until this evening. Let’s just say I made it worth the investment to sign-up for a Barnes & Noble membership. (BTW I totally blame you guys for my lack of willpower – every book I got was recommended by someone out here in the blogosphere. This is what happens when you write wonderful reviews). Current thoughts going through my head:
Good: I finally have the necessary things (i.e. “books”) to start a Bookstagram account. Maybe. It would probably turn into an excuse to post more pictures of my dog online.
Bad: I just got rid of a bookshelf so the book haul is homeless (ebooks don’t exactly require a lot of space, although I manage to step on my Kindle at least once a week)
Good: All the books are outside of what I usually read, so I’m feeling PRETTY darn good about my 2018 Bookish Resolutions.
REALLY BAD: I was supposed to be home baking a cake for my husband’s birthday. Maybe I can just lend him one of my new books instead? As long as he doesn’t eat while reading it, crease the spine, or dog-ear the pages we should be good. Clearly, my love only goes so far.
Lately on the Blog:
I spent most of the week fighting with a food allergy. The posts got up, but the blog hoppin’ didn’t get done. Looking forward to catching up on everyone’s blogs as soon as I finish baking that cake. In the meantime, feel free to use me as a case study in a “bad blogger etiquette” post.
On Tuesday: I admitted that I don’t remember all the 5-star books I read.
On Wednesday: I reviewed Vi Keeland’s Sex, Not Love (4 stars)
On Thursday: I reviewed Lisa Kleypas’ The Devil in Spring (3 stars) and am still waiting for someone to throw rotten fruit at me for not loving a Kleypas novel.
Read this Week:
I finally read Christina Lauren’s Roomies – one of my most anticipated reads of 2017. It may have been my most anticipated read, but I only read it because my library loan was about to end. How does that work?
New to the Bookish Library:
Here’s the aftermath of my wild Saturday night at the bookstore…
