The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
If you'd like to participate with The Sunday Salon, it is now a Facebook group.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
I'm also linking to Stacking The Shelves which is hosted by Team Tynga's Reviews.
I'm a bit late in getting started today. I usually have this scheduled to post the day before, but it didn't work out that way this week. Nothing bad, just busy stuff.
I was able to catch up on two books I had started, but kept having to put on the back burner for blog tour books. Both books were great and I was happy that I could just get back into them with no problems. Sometimes it ruins a book when you leave it for a bit and then go back to it. Not in this case. I can't wait start my next batch of books - all books I've been looking forward to.
A question for you reviewers - this has been an issue I've seen discussed often and wanted to see what you all do now. When writing a review, do you do a synopsis of the book or use an official blurb (cover copy, Goodreads, etc.)? Are you reviews indepth or a couple of paragraphs with your opinion? I'm thinking readers lose interest if the reviews are too long and I avoid putting in any spoilers at all (I hate them for books). For blog tours, I use Goodreads. Otherwise, I tend to summarize the book in a couple of paragraphs, then do my opinion in one or two paragraphs. What do you do?
The new TV season is in full swing. I've recorded everything and only watched one show this week - Survivor. I kind of feel as if I need to watch this on the day it airs to avoid any spoilers. As old as this show is, I still enjoy it every season.
So, what's been happening with you? Anything new and exciting?
