May 11 - 18 Re-Cap

This is my first time doing this meme, and it’s the perfect way to wrap up what happened this week. I’ve taken part in Bout of Books 10 and it’s been a lot of fun. I didn’t read as much as I’d hoped. But I’m going to look on the positive, I’ve read a lot more so far this month than I did in April. So that’s a big plus!

I’ve just managed to shake off a reading slump, and now I’m battling a review slump! I sit down at the computer with every intention to get up to date, but before I know it, three hours have flown by and I haven’t even started on one review. This coming week I’m going to have to step away from the lovely interwebs and concentrate on catching up. Chances are since I’ve actually wrote this down, I’ll end up doing the exact opposite!

On the Blog this past week

Monday: Review: Looking for Alex by Marian Dillon
Tuesday:TTT - Ten Books I Almost Put Down But Didn't
Tuesday:Bout of Books Day 2 Updates and Challenges
Wednesday: WoW - The Merciless by Danielle Vega
Thursday:Review: Thirteen by Tom Hoyle

Books I read this past week

Posts I Loved

Feed Your Fiction Addiction: How Soon Do You Review? -- I loved this post. I tend to procrastinate, and leave my reviews until the last minute. I do write up a few notes when I finish a book and I usually write a review based on them, and I find it helps me to distance myself from that just read high.

Fictional Thoughts: 12 Things I Wish I Knew When I Started Blogging -- I started up at the beginning of this year, and I wish I knew all of these things back then!

Notebook Sisters: Honest YA Covers, Part 2 -- I was laughing so hard after reading this post. Definitely check it out if you haven't read it! And even if you have, read it again, so worth it.

Soundtrack for the week

Everlong by Foo Fighters. No real reason, I just love the song =)

I’ll be taking part in a book blitz on Thursday, and I have an ebook to give away so be sure to check back and enter the giveaway then! Have a great week, and happy reading.
