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!
Cover talk: The Casual Vacancy — I discuss what I like/dislike about the cover of J.K. Rowling’s upcoming release.
[review] Black Heart by Holly Black — An amazing end to an extremely gripping series. I’m sad to see it end!
Charging for reviews? — I discuss what I think is the unreasonable act of bloggers charging authors for reviews.
Dante’s Girl by Courtney Cole — A release note, part of the Kismet blog tour.
Whip it Up Mondays — Truffles! (No, not the chocolate kind.)
Where do I begin? This week sucked, to be honest. A lot of work drama really had me wanting to spend time by myself. And spending time by myself resulted in extra reading time! I plowed through Black Heart, the last installment in the Curse Workers series by Holly Black. And then I spent time wishing it hadn’t ended. The Curse Workers series is the first series in a while that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. It’s hard to find a series in which you enjoy each and every book – especially when it’s a genre you don’t typically read.
Because I enjoyed them so much, I decided to take a chance and go for another popular series that’s not typically a genre I read: The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I’m currently finishing up City of Bones and OMG IT IS AMAZING AND WHY DIDN’T ANY OF YOU MAKE ME READ THIS SOONER?!
Oh, and there’s still nothing planned regarding my two-year blog birthday this week. Yep. I’m slacking.
