What did I miss? is a new feature here at The Grammarian’s Reviews. I thought it was about time I feature weekly updates and highlights from both here and other bloggers. So let’s get on with the recap!

Reveal: Iron’s Prophecy by Julie Kagawa — Bet you thought we’d never hear about Ash again. Well, we will!

[review] The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg — A very surprising read.

Introducing: The Book Sessions — Ever want to read books and chat about them without having to review them? Then The Book Sessions is for you!

The importance of titles — Because titles need love, too.

Whip it Up Mondays — Sushi and sashimi.

________________________________________________________________________________

This definitely wasn’t my best week. Way too much stress in my life right now. Still, I’ve persisted reading and keeping up with posting. Problem is I’m running out of reading options again. Read any good books lately? I’ll take all the suggestions I can get!

Highlight of the week, by far, was the introduction of The Book Sessions, a project Anne and I have been planning for weeks. I’m really excited at the thought of coming together with other readers without the pressures created by blogging and reviewing.

Also, I’m still not any closer to having/setting aside a special “vacation” day. So I’m feeling a little bummed right now. But I’ll keep my head up and hope for the best. Hope all of you had a better week!

The power of language — Amanda shows how seemingly harmless messages can be taken negatively online.

Tell me a story — Author Jennifer Hubbard discusses the want and need to change stories.

Reading reasoning — Kaye started a good discussion about what, exactly, grabs our attention when we see book covers.

Books…and ice cream? — Yes. Books and ice cream. The girls at Novel Sounds created an awesome post pairing books with matching ice cream flavors.

*I’ve noticed a lot of bloggers are taking summer hiatuses, or are too preoccupied/busy to post otherwise. Because of this, this week felt particularly slow to me, as far as posts around the blogosphere go.

  1. It HAS been rather slow, hasn’t it? I haven’t been on Twitter much lately, and I think sometimes the slowness is often easy to spot by how many tweets you see every day.

    Hope you have a better week next week! *hugs*

    I loved your post about titles and Book Sessions sounds like such a cool idea. I’m sorry about your week but I hope this one is better & you find a vacation day. 🙂

    Aw, thanks for linking my post! Those ice creams took me too long to draw, haha.
