About this Feature…
I’ve wanted to have a Sunday re-cap feature for a while now. This feature was inspired by both IMM, hosted by The Story Siren, as well as Stacking the Shelves over at Tynga’s Reviews. But more specifically, Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge, hosted by both Amanda of On a Book Bender and Tara of 25 Hour Books. I’m actually using Amanda’s format for these posts because I feel it’s incredibly organized and easy to follow. Thank you for the inspiration, ladies!
I wanted to combine the two ideas: sharing the books I got that week and sharing things from my life, my blog, and around the bookish community.
I’ve known what I want it to include, but have had a really hard time coming up with a name for it. One night, after Austin Teen Book Fest (Sept. 2012), my friends Sarah and Lena helped me come up with Gone with the Week. Thanks, ladies!!
What’s the Word in Jess’ World…
Ok, so I actually forgot to do one of these last weekend, but it’s because I haven’t posted on the weekends in a long time! Sorry, guys!! teehee I’ll try to not forget from now on!
Work’s finally slowed down, though I’m still working about 10 hours every day. Most likely this upcoming week will be the last week we do this (hopefully!).
Yesterday I finished the second book this year, you guys!! Work has been sucking up all my energy, and it’s made me behind on my reading goal already. *SIGH* I hope I can pick up my reading soon.
Around the Blogosphere…
- Amanda of On a Book Bender gives us “an ode to my reading companion” which made me teary eyed. Show Amanda some love!
- Lauren of Love is not a triangle gives us “A Discussion about Character Redemption” and I was all “GAH! I HATED DAEMON BEFORE ONYX!” or something…
- Alexa of Alexa Loves Books and Kate of Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands are hosting a very cool event come February…”Book Blogger Love-a-Thon” Sign up now!!
