So before I forget, the Final Twitter Party is today at 5:30 PM EST. If you don’t know what time that is where you are, here’s a countdown timer with time conversions:
Those of you on the mailing list should have gotten an email reminder this morning (fingers crossed that it worked!). If you’re not on the mailing list yet and want to be, you can sign up here.
I feel like I got behind on my reading this week, but I managed to post 4 reviews (I had read & written my review the Marie Hall book way back in July and just was waiting for it to publish though) this week. I’m right on track to hit my goal
- [18 Aug] The Assassin and the Underworld by Sarah J. Maas ★★★★½
- [20 Aug] Scent of a White Rose by Tish Thawer ★★★
- [21 Aug] Howler's Night by Marie Hall ★★★★★
- [22 Aug] Guild Assassin by Berley Kerr ★★★½
Facebook & Twitter Games & Giveaway
If you haven’t joined the Facebook group yet, please do! If you have any trouble just shoot me a message with the email you use for FB and I’ll invite you to the group. Anyway one of the games we’re playing over there is Tag! You’re it! Brandee kicked things off this week with this get to know you question:
How do y’all feel about serials? Have you/do you read them? What do you like about them? What do you not like about them?
This was a fun question because serials are new for me. Turns out most of us seem to be not too sure about them or wary altogether. But there are a few willing to try them out, me included! Can’t wait to see what’s up next! The way this works is that out of everyone who replies to the comments we use random.org to select someone who will ask the question next week. So… drum roll….
Tag! Nikita of NjKinny’s World of Books & Stuff! You’re It!
Nikita, you’ll need to pose a fun/get to know you question for the group tomorrow (Monday) morning and then from there it will go just like last week. Come by the FB group to see what Nikita asks!
We also had Where Are You Wednesday and Switcharoo Saturday (because we forgot to do Freaky Friday LOL) on both twitter and FB. From all three activities we used random.org to pick a winner for this week’s swag pack. Drum roll again please… the winner is…
JenniferK (Goodreads Participant)! Congratulations!!
Michelle will be contacting you for information to send you your prize
Next weekend we have another read-a-thon – this time it’s the end of summer Read-a-thon! So get those fall and/or school/university themed books ready for some end of summer fun. Sign up coming tomorrow
Some Reviews Posted This Week
There are more than 500 reviews posted! I can’t believe it, but I actually think we’ll top 600 before the challenge is over. Pat yourselves on the back – that’s some serious reading & reviewing people!
Kai @ Fiction State of Min reviewed Lucky at Cards by Lawrence Block. This 1960’s Noir book was quite different sounding than my usual picks and Kai’s review has me very interested!
JenniferK on Goodreads reviewed The Jewel by Amy Ewing. I’ve been watching this one for a while – what can I say, I’m a sucker for pretty covers! But Jennifer’s review has me dying to read it!
Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee reviewed two books from the Songs of Submission series by CD Reiss. I’ve been saying it for a while now, but I seriously need to read CD Reiss!
Of course that’s not even close to a sampling of the reviews posted just last week, let alone during COYER-SV, so be sure to check out all the review links here. There’s bunches of goodies to read!
I hope everyone is having a great time! Let me know how COYER is going for you in the comments!!
