This is the first Sunday of the new year! I cannot believe it is 2014, I have big hopes for this year. I have a lot of goals and resolutions for the blog. I want to change a few things. Nothing too big. The biggest change might be the way I do my Sunday update. Because I am scheduling my posts more in advance, I will be able to give you a heads up on what is coming out each week. I might also move the book haul to a separate post as well. Breaking up the Sunday posts into two would give me the opportunity to just do two reviews a week, which seems a bit more manageable. Top Ten Tuesdays and Thoughtful Thursdays will remain unchanged.
I received three books this week from two different giveaways. First, I received Memory's Wake from the Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge (hosted by Fantasy Is More Fun and Because Reading Is Better than Real Life). This was a really fun challenge, and there is another one coming up in a few months! Second, I received Taste by Kate Evangelista and a signed copy of This Is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E Smith from the Dreamy December Days Read-a-Thon (hosted by Books Keep Me Sane and Always Lost in Books.
A Study in Ashes by Emma Jane Holloway: I am still enjoying this book; I just had to prioritize another book over it recently.
A Dance with Dragons by GRR Martin: I am having trouble fitting in audio time. I am considering switching to the physical book.
The Einstein Intersection by Samuel R Delany: This is the January read for the Sword & Laser book club. It is poetic and makes interesting statements about being different. I am about one-third of the way through the book (it is super short) and am looking forward to seeing how the story plays out.
