Happy weekend, everyone! I just finished my last exam of the semester yesterday, so I’m officially done with the craziness that comes with the first year of grad school. That means MORE
LAB READING TIME! 😀 I got my priorities straight, haha.
- Round 3 of Picky Reader vs. Picky Eater is Stephen King’s It against cilantro – let the battle begin!
- Cait @ Notebook Sisters asked publicists about writing negative reviews.
- Rinn @ Rinn Reads admitted that some books are just really difficult to remember!
- Sarah @ The Aroma of Books thought Anne McCaffrey’s Harper Hall trilogy was “[a] solid trilogy for those who enjoy fantasy.”
- Stefanie @ So Many Books discussed the importance of science fiction.
- Books about Africa all look the same, or why there are still cultural clichés in the publishing world.
- Harry Potter-themed wedding, anyone? So cool!
- Huffington Post’s Claire Fallon elaborates on trigger warnings for books in response to a recent New York Times article.
- If pop songs were works of fiction, I would be more likely to read these than listen to the songs. The Rebecca Black one is hilarious.
- The Hachette vs. Amazon battle has been escalating, and it’s concerning to see the huge influence Amazon has on authors, readers, and publishers.
- Youtubers are coming out with books – not sure how this will pan out, since I’m sure good writing isn’t a requirement for publishing…
