Sunday Post

The Sunday Post Because I am organizing my posts a bit better (and by a bit, a mean a ton), I feel that I can start participating in the Caffeinated Book Reviewer's Sunday Post meme! I actually know what I am going to post each week! Can you believe it? Crazy, I know!

This week has been a bit of a bummer. My credit card number got stolen and then a few days later my Amazon account got hacked. I have spent the last couple of days changing all of my passwords. Ugh.

To make matters even worse, I had some book blogging-related drama. Hopefully, it has been dealt with. I apologize if you saw any inappropriate comments. At this time, all comments need to be held for moderation. This is just to ensure that a particular person and his colleagues do not continue to post. Nothing untoward has happened in the last few days, so I am hoping that he has found better things to do with his time than bother me. Until I feel more confident that he is going to leave me alone, however, I will have to continue to moderate the comments.

The Archived by Victoria Schwab

I am so happy about my one purchase this week! I snagged The Archived by Victoria Schwab. As of writing this post, it was still only $0.99 on Amazon (US only). From what I understand, this is the going price across e-book stores, so go pick it up!

Currently Reading

Days of Blood & Starlight: I must admit that although I loved the writing in Daughter of Smoke & Bone, I found the story a bit lacking. I felt like there was no closure at the end of the book. Now that I am reading book two in this series, I have begun to think differently about the first book and this series. I am imaging these books as one large book that just so happened to be broken up into three books (like the Lord of the Rings trilogy) instead of three stories that have an overarching arc (like the Magicians series). With this new perspective, I am enjoying this series immensely. However, I am still not a fan of Akiva. I think Karou can do better. Maybe he will do something in this book to impress me.

A Dance with Dragons: I recently discovered that I am woefully at the beginning of this book due to my current listening habits. Although I said I was going to switch to the e-book before, I am really going to do this now. Without a long commute or drive happening anytime soon, the audio book will be painfully long.
