I had really great reading week as I finally got out of my reading slump and got some work done!
First I read The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke and really enjoyed it! It's a fun fantasy/adventure story of an assassin and a pirate. My review will be up soon.
Directly afterwards, I read The Automaton's Treasure by Cassandra Rose Clarke. This one is a novella that follows one the side characters in The Assassin's Curse. I wasn't too impressed by this one but it was only 33 pages long.
Lastly, I read Anatomy of a Single Girl by Daria Snadowski. This one was sent to me for review by the author, so thank you Daria if you're reading this! I actually really enjoyed this one, it was pure, honest and realistic. For more thoughts check out my review which will be up on Monday.
On the BlogIt was a slow week on the blogging front from me but P.E. has been going strong!
- P.E. reviewed Sacrifice the last book in the Legacy series by Cayla Kluver. Sadly she wasn't too impressed by it.
- P.E. posted a new Cover Wars! Pitching two beautiful covers, Cruel Beauty and last weeks winner Ashes on Ice against each other. Visit the post and vote for your favourite!
- On Wednesday I participated in one of my favourite memes, Waiting on Wednesday. I featured How to Love an upcoming books with an interesting plot!
- P.E. then reviewed Prophecy by Ellen Oh, a book she was really excited about but proved insufficient.
- On Friday, I wrote about New Adult and my opinion of it. This is a type of post that I don't do a lot of, although I'm a very opinionated person I like to voice my controversial opinions not write them.
- Lastly, P.E. and I introduced a TSC original meme thought up by P.E. called Best of Saturday. BoS (Boss!) is a weekly meme that features post we enjoyed and shares the love!
- Day 10: How she picks the next book to read
- Day 11: Her 5 best posts
- Day 12: How she fights blogging fatigue
- Day 13: Most Under-appreciated Book
Almost nothing interesting, the highlight of my week was probably teaching Rogers its place. Anyone who knows me knows my long standing bandwidth problem and finally I decided to call Rogers and chew them out properly. Canadians we need to get more prominent internet providers, this monopoly is not good for any of our wallets.
Otherwise, I've been working! I work at a summer tennis camp and teach little kids how to play tennis. It's been a fun week but really weird weather wise. Here is a picture from last weeks monster rain storm.
Summer's entering it's middle period, and the initial excitement is wearing out. Hope august has more fun coming my way with the release of City of Bones, back to school shopping and more reading of course!
