The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 10-6-19

Sunday Post

This was the week of the hot mess in reviews. Honestly, three of the books I reviewed this week featured a hot mess in one form or another. Ivy Gamble in Magic for Liars is a hot mess, as was the entire situation of the French Revolution in Ribbons of Scarlet (although the book about this particular hot mess is very good!) and the story in This is How You Lose the Time War, well, it read like a hot mess to me, although opinions on this one certainly vary. It seems to be a book that people either really love or can’t quite get into – and for me it was the latter.

It also feels like Giveaway Hop season is starting to rev up. Whether that’s because people are in more of a giving mood near the holidays, or because some bloggers (including moi) enjoy having a day when we don’t have to produce a review, or a bit of both, it’s still getting to be that season. Speaking of giveaway hops, signups for the Black Friday Giveaway Hop are open! – even if I can’t believe I’m working on stuff for Thanksgiving already.

  1. I admire your organizational skills and how you prepare early. I always try to look ahead too when possible–it definitely helps with stress and sleep. Hope your week is awesome!
