It’s great to be back blogging again, and I’m really beginning to enjoy WordPress – even if the free version’s more limiting than Blogger. Still, it’s refreshing to try something new, so I’m glad I moved! Also, I turned sixteen on Tuesday! It’s kind of intimidating to know that I’m only four years away from leaving my teens completely, but it’s also exhilarating as well. I just hope my mind matures along with my age, ha.
What’s gone on this week, Captain?
- I re-joined the blogosphere with a new blog and a welcome post!
- I list down the top five books I wish were taught in school
- I reviewed All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
- I discussed some of the problems I face when choosing quotes
- I shared my 7 Deadly Sins of Reading, tagged by Nara
- The first Sci-Fi Saturday post debuted: learn more about the Hyperloop!
Yeah… my first week back and my blog’s already overflowing with posts. The rest of September’s going to be the same, because I have so many books to review! The hiatus did me some good, but it also put me behind schedule. I regret nothing, though.
- Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews explains why she’s giving up on ARCs
- Charlotte also discusses book boyfriends (*goes gooey-eyed*)
- Asti @ A Bookish Heart plays “Book Title Pictionary” – check out her drawings and see if you can guess the book’s title
- Chrys @ Oh, Chrys has created three sets of beautiful social media icons for anyone and everyone to use
- Nara @ Looking for the Panacea discusses the awkward moment when you dislike a book someone recommended to you
- Kezia @ Chapteriosity asks if we should judge a book by its ending?
- Arial @ In Italics talks about the popular and much dreaded topic: instalove
- Jenna @ Rather Be Reading YA wants to know why we write reviews
- Giselle @ Xpresso Reads shares with us some of her favorite villains
- Beth Revis gives us some wise advice on how to respond to negative reviews on her blog (Note: this post is more than a year old, but I saw it retweeted on Twitter, and she gave really good tips, so I thought I’d share it.)
- Kate @ Reading Under the Willow Tree talks about fanfiction to real fiction
What about you?
How was your first week of September (and, for some of you, first week of school)? Hope everyone’s coping well!
