May is going to be a packed month for me! My trigger-happy finger requested so many books without paying attention to the May publishing dates 😓
I’ve now scheduled them accordingly and these are the 3 books I’m reading this week:
The Bearer’s Burden
by Chad Queen
by Jamie S. Rich and Dan Christensen
by E. M. Brown
Last week, I finished Starlings by Jo Walton. It’s a short-story and poem collection, you can check out my review here.
Lately, I’ve been feeling boxed in, helpless and frustrated more often. It’s largely owing to my current situation, which I won’t divulge even though I want to because I don’t know if anyone I know in real life will stumble upon this blog. I don’t have chronic depression but sometimes you can get something close to depression because of outside factors. I also don’t want to bandy the word depression around so carelessly, so I guess I’m very down in the dumps I should say. I should take my own advice that ‘Everything will be ok’. You have to go on because no one else is going to fight for your cause as they’re all busy battling their own. And maybe, one day, I hope to bring good news 😃
Add some milk…
This Tuesday I want to talk about ARCs and TBR lists. I joined NetGalley in late-March(I think), filled out my profile and requested a bunch of books I was interested in. I’ve seen advices online that you should avoid reviewing or requesting books you’re not interested in, which made me wonder, why would anyone do that? Request books they don’t like the sound of, that is.
The other thing that I’m curious about is: when do you usually read your ARCs? How long before or after their publishing date? Or do you read and review whenever you like?
A dash of sugar…
Here are some casual shots I took this week 😉
