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

Blogging for yourself: a response — Amanda @ On a Book Bender posed a really great question about what it means to blog for yourself. This was my response to her question.

Deanna reviews… Future of Us by Jay Asher — Introducing a new co-reviewer!

TGR’s 2nd blog birthday! — That’s right. I’ve been running The Grammarian’s Reviews for two years now. Where did the time go?

[review] Dante’s Girl by Courtney Cole  — A cute, breezy vacation read.

Whip it Up Mondays — Let’s ogle some whoopie pies. Yummm.


Well guys, I’ve been slacking. I haven’t picked up a book in over three days. I always do this to myself — book burnout. Last week I plowed through a handful of books and felt like I was on a good, productive track. This week? Not so much. But that’s okay! I have time to get back into the swing of things. Plus, Bout of Books is fast approaching, and that will definitely get me in the mood to read.

In other books news, everyone but me has read The Evolution of Mara Dyer. This makes me sad.

The highlight of my week was the start of the Olympics. (It was killing me that I had to wait until Friday for it!) Since it’s started, it’s been taking up most of my time. I’m a sucker for the gymnastic and swimming bits. If you’ve been missing out on any of it at all, check my Twitter feed. I’ve been live-tweeting about a ton of the events with Mandi!

Blogging for you — Amanda hosted a thoughtful discussion about what it means to blog for you.

Team _____! – Nafiza discusses the breakdown of literary romances.

Looking for a good read? — Liz has a long list of awesome Contemp reads to try (picked by bloggers!).

50 Shades of Grey — WORD for Teens discussed in length the issues with the popular erotica book.

Let’s Talk — Melissa discusses book to film versus book to TV adaptations.

  1. I have NOT read The Evolution of Mara Dyer. No worries there! 😉

    PS. I have been slacking on reading today, too. What’s up with that?

  2. I haven’t read the Mara Dyer book! You are not alone. 🙂

    I have been burned out lately too; pacing is something I struggle with. Burn out happens, try not to stress.

      Oh, good! That makes three of us, haha!

      Yes, pacing is the real struggle. I read all at once, then not at all. I need to find a balance.

    I have also not read The Evolution of Mara Dyer. So that’s at least four of us.

    And I am completely digging our tweet sessions during the Olympics. <3!
