Once again I prove that I’m terrible at sticking to any plans. I had grand dreams at the start of September. I was so excited about #SelfPubFantasyMonth and then it just so happened that the first book I read was a total stinker and blew all the wind out of my sails. I spent two weeks trying to write a review, before I gave up. Nobody needs that kind of negativity in their lives. Self-Pub Fantasy Month was an awesome idea started by Jason over at Off the TBR.
Although I didn’t get through as many books as I would have liked, I branched out of my comfort zone and picked up books I may not have given a chance before. I had already purchased a few self-published books on my kindle in anticipation of this, plus I picked up an extra. I’m 100% putting my faith in the peeps I follow on Twitter. I’ve heard a lot of good things about Rob J. Hayes, so I figured in the spirit of the month I would jump on the bandwagon.
I have started doing Top Ten Tuesday posts as well, I’ve missed a couple already even though I had done the prep work, I’d like to say I’ll do better this month, but I’ve already missed one.
I managed to get a couple of NetGalley reviews up which is always a good thing as I’m way behind.
Oh and if you haven’t picked up Hidden City by Alan Baxter, what are you waiting for people. Get on it.
This month I added a few books to my collection. Most were from Op-Shops, a charity sale and a couple from the book store. Also I have a total cover crush on City Of Kings. Shawn King is a talented man.
I would like to be positive and say I’ll be consistent in October, get all my posts up, get through some NetGalley books and not request any more, but why lie to myself. I’ll continue doing my mish mash of things, hats off to all those who seem to have their blogging lives together.
