Weekly Recap: August 25-31, 2013

Saturday, August 31, 2013
Did you miss something this week? Don't worry- everything that's been happening on the blog is down below! 


I write a love letter review of Attachments by Rainbow Rowell, which is pretty much a must-read for fans of You Got Mail.


Who are the Top Ten Supporting Characters? (Well, one is Hector from the Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson, but if you follow me on Twitter, you really should have seen that coming.)


It's the last week of the Something Strange and Deadly Book Club with Epic Reads! This week's topic is Eleanor's choice...if she even has one.


Time for a College Road Trip! These YA books are set in college and they look fabulous (and why yes, one of them is Fangirl by the aforementioned Rainbow Rowell).


This week's Bookish Buys is pretty random, but it features a very cool clock and these stair decorations that made me want to build a staircase so I could buy and use them.


Dahlia Adler, author and editor extraordinaire, stops by for the latest Inside the Industry post! 

Around the Blogosphere

Pub(lishing) Crawl continues the conversation on strong female characters.

What have you been up to this week?


  1. I love the links in your Around the Blogoshpere! I came across Sophia McDougall's article "I hate strong female characters" sometime last week, and man my brain EXPLODED! She seriously nailed all the things that I have had issues with over the years, but wasn't sure how to put into words. Erin Bowman really linked everything together, and I really enjoyed her post.

    And maybe genius's blog post was awesome too! I literally just typed up a review last night where I talked about all the reasons I hated this book...but it was like crack and I had to keep reading the series because it sucked me in! And I AM embarrassed I got sucked in, because there were eye rolls practically every page. But maybe genius has many, many compelling points on the subject.

    So....clearly I need to pay more attention to this part of your posts haha

    1. Haha I'm glad you liked it! I thought it'd be fun to share some of my favorite posts. (The rest are in Reader's Report, though. :)

  2. Writing is an art, and including something innovative will boost sales and publicity as well on the company's part. good site


Your comments brighten my day. :)
