I know I have been M.I.A for a while and honestly it doesn’t really matter why…. cuz, well, I’m back for now…
So since I have been gone I have been reading quite a bit, being on bed rest will definitely do that to you. But hey, who am I to complain, right?
I have started ready Ruby Red (OMG YASSSS) and The Girl On The Train which is taking me a minute but I think I’m finally getting to the good part. But aside from those two, a couple stand alone reads, The Mermaids Sister (if interested, let me know and I will fill you in on how much I absolutely adored this one) and a new one from netgally called Cheater by Miss Rachel Van Dyken.
Now I am one of those people who tries to find the good in every book. Occasionally, well, I can’t, no matter how hard I try and I absolutely hate this part as a book blogger. Let me explain why I hate giving bad reviews… I as a book blogger and book worm have gotten to meet and know many amazing authors and I know how crushing it is to spend so much time, effort and money on a book that as an author, you are putting out there for the world to read. Seeing them get so many good reviews and one or two bad reviews is hard because authors a lot of the time are also spending time away from their families in hopes that people will love what they put out there. So with those negative reviews I feel more like the book in question just wasn’t right for the reviewer. Which brings me to the last book I got from blogging for books. I chose a book called A Proper Drink by Robert Simonson. This book was NOT for me. I went in thinking this was something completely different and all I got was a history on bartenders. I thought, maybe it’ll be kinda like a retelling but nope…. it was like reading a history book for me so that’s why I found it a bit boring. That’s really all I have to say on the matter…. I didn’t get far into it before I just couldn’t keep going so I gave it to someone who would enjoy it. Sorry I can’t give you more!
