In Case You Missed It (2)
In In Case You Missed It I basically round up my week in terms of books, reviews and other bookish things. This will mainly focus on my own things, but I'll be likely to include links to fellow bloggers if I find something awesome :)
This first week of May mainly consisted of wrapping up April and kicking off May, which is why only one review went up, but it was a good one! I reviewed Slated by Teri Terry, which is a great dystopian debut for 2012. It's the first in a series and I'm already impatiently waiting for the second book.. Why does Fracture need to come out in May 2013? Aaahh the agony!
kickoff post on the 1st of May, where you can find all the deets. On Friday, the first wrap up went live - including a giveaway to B&DERM participants!
On a slightly relevant note, yesterday I posted some tips on how to beat that reading slump - I've been suffering from one during most of April, so I thought I'd share what works for me :)
While I was browsing the worldwide interwebz, I came across Zoë Marriott's 'All About Writing'-page (yay, she finally put it up!), which I would definitely check out if you're into writing! I love her writing posts, she has some great advice.. I would definitely check out her posts on plotting because they really helped me out with my writing. Meanwhile another one of my favorite writing-advice-writing-authors, Jodi Meadows, did a post on writing a perfect first draft. Besides that, I have to admit I haven't checked any book blogs because of the Insurgent review overload. I haven't even gotten my copy in, so I'm trying to avoid book blogs for now since everyone seems to be reviewing Insurgent!
That's what was up on the blog this week! Now I'll probably need to go back to sitting besides the mailbox for my preorder to come in (I'm writing this on Saturday). Fingers crossed? :)
