Hey ya’ll! I haven’t done a Rambles and Rants here in a while, so here I am with some random thoughts. (NOTE: I hope you can follow along because my train of thought is always all over the place)
If you don’t believe that book hype is a real thing then you are wrong as hell. Let’s talk about how I got roped into it this past week. I kept seeing reviews and photos everywhere for The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. Ya’ll, I wasn’t even interested in reading this book. Not one bit! After seeing it everywhere though, I totally caved and put myself on hold at the library.
Now I did like it (I’ll leave my review HERE) but it amazed me how much seeing this book everywhere affected me. Has this happened to anyone else?
So I’ve been thinking about coming up with a posting schedule for a while now. The main reason why is because ya girl has been burning herself out. Ever since I started blogging I have been posting 3-4 reviews a week. It finally caught up to me last week and put me in a slump. I couldn’t get into any book I picked up last week! So I was thinking about this:
Monday – Book Review
WWW Wednesday – to have like a middle of the week update
Friday – Book Review
This is a rough draft. I’m also afraid that posting less would make people lose interest in my blog. Maybe, maybe not. All I know is working full time and trying to read 3-4 books a week is hard and I can’t keep that up. Do you have a posting schedule?
For summer I have been reading much for YA than I normally do. And not just YA, but YA contemporaries. I just want all the fluffy contemporaries that I can get my hands on. I recently read Love & Gelato by Jenna Evans Walsh and I loved it. It had the right amount and fluffiness mixed with those first love feelings.
What do you read more of in the summer? Any recommendations for me?
Slow down on the ARCS
You read that right! I really do need to slow down on the ARCs. I have been overloading myself so much that it’s really gotten out of control. I need to realize that if I don’t request an ARC for a book that I’m interested in that life will still go on. It will still be published and I can read it then.
I really have been requesting ARCS and accepting ARC review requests a bit these past few months. I’m grateful for the opportunity, let’s get that straight. But reading and reviewing over 8-10 a month has taken a toll on me. So, for now, I need to ONLY REQUEST THE ONES I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT.
