I've managed to read Lost in Time by Melissa de la Cruz while on the airplane to Arizona over the weekend. I enjoyed the book, but after six of them, it's time to stop with the cliffhangers! (that's my personal opinion!). I've also started Abbi Glines, Breathe, which I am enjoying immensely. I like books that are just about normal people who seem to have a connection with each other.
There are so many great books coming out soon that I'm sure to be overwhelmed again with everything. I haven't been receiving many from publishers, which honestly has been a good thing. I'm sorta overwhelmed with what I have!
I did want to bring up what former agent and now current CNET employee Nathan Bransford has blogged about and that is blog fatigue. I definitely feel like I'm going through it. There are so many YA bloggers that I feel like I get lost in the etherworld. I try to review books in a way that will not offend the author, but yet will get my point across to the reader. Obviously, reviews are subjective. Again, just because I don't like or love a book doesn't necessarily mean you will feel the same. Has anyone ever really taken Roger Eberts reviews to heart and boycotted a movie because he didn't give it two thumbs up? I hardly doubt it.
But to get back to blogger fatigue. I definitely feel it and see it when everyone reviews the same book the same week. Now grant it, it's probably a fluke that it happens, but really how many reviews of one books can we take?
I read so many books, and generally, one right after another, that I completely forgotten what I've read! My brain is not a sponge anymore, but more like an abyss. It all gets lost. Even books I absolutely love! I know, I know, I should write down my thoughts, but when I'm reading I just don't think of it. Plus, I was never much of a note taker.
I hope people enjoy my blog when I do post something. I try to do something different from everyone else. I hope everyone is having a great Fall. Comment and let me know what you're reading! I'm interested in hearing that!
