What a week. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was writing this post last Thursday. I genuinely feel as though it’s been one of those weeks where the world gets away from me and yet I’m actually managing to schedule some of my posts ahead of time now. And it’s been nice, frankly. But, for the first time in a while, I’m actually developing a little bit of a social life and ironically enough it’s all thanks to the puppy.
It’s amazing how many people you meet when you get a puppy and even more amazing when you meet them because they have one as well and you begin scheduling times to get together and let the dogs play with one another. It’s funny, in a way, because my family never did this when we got puppies. But I really think that having the ability to get together so that your (very energetic) dogs can get their energy out together is a wonderful thing.
And then there’s the elections that happened just Tuesday which frankly have left me thoroughly frustrated with the uneducated in this country. I don’t know how anyone really feels that it’s morally okay to be voting Republican after all those horrible people have been doing in recent years. Frankly, it all makes me sick. And the fact that there are Republicans who were recently elected or reelected to the senate is despicable.
And now, moving on, we have the reviews I’ve manged to write this week! It’s clearly a much smaller number than last week, but what can I say? I guess I’ve just been busy.
Yesterday I added five more books to my TBR and shared them with you all in the YA Releases on My TBR post series! I’m still featuring books from March, but I imagine we’ll be moving to April soon.
Last week’s cover love Friday was for The Too-Clever Fox [Leigh Bardugo].
Just two days ago was Top Ten Tuesday’s Backlist Books!
Litographs and a Late Photo is a really cool post featuring a Litographs tattoo chain in which a large group of people use temporary tattoos to basically wear a complete book together. I didn’t get to participate as a result of a late mail arrival, but I still got to take a picture!
I Just Wanted to Say… …that politics is really rough to deal with and I’m a mix of scared and hopeful and dejected at all times. But I’m still fighting and that’s what’s important.
And, if you’re especially bored, feel free to check out my Twilight Reread Update #2 where I detail my thoughts as I reread the book for the first time since realizing how problematic it truly was.
