In honor of the newest House of Night release, Izzy and I have declared October House of Night month. Well, the remainder of it, anyway. So for the next two weeks we will be geeking out on all things House of Night. What you can expect? An Izzy-Jehara chat about the series as a whole, our thoughts on the companion book Nyx, and of course a double review of the new book Destined.
Here is your friendly reminder that Dewey’s Read-a-thon is NEXT WEEK!!! Squee!!!! One week from tomorrow loads of readers across the globe will be hunkering down in their pajamas (okay that may just be me) for a solid day of reading, snacking, and blogging. We will be participating in full over here at QGR. We will be hosting two mini-challenges, cheerleading and reading. And!!! I even have a friend coming over to read with me!!! This will be my sixth time participating and it’s always been a solo affair for me. I’ve always liked the idea of doing the read-a-thon with a friend, but so far, it just hasn’t happened. I am stoked to have someone to share it with in the physical realm, in addition to the virtual one. Woot!!!!
If you haven’t signed up, there’s still time!!
That sums up the announcements and reminders. I do have a question for you, though. I have been toying around with an idea for a while now. For the last several months I’ve made a point to bookmark actual reviews I read of books that I now want to read. My initial thought was if I ever get around to reading that book I’d like to be able to link to the original review for my reason for reading. Then I started thinking that I needed to make time for this as there are a lot of books I want to read off of review recommendations, but I don’t believe I am reading enough of them. So. I thought what if I make it a monthly feature and invite other bloggers to tackle those particular books off of their to read lists along with me? It’s one book a month. Also, I like the idea of us reading each other’s books and sharing them on our blogs. Spreading the love and showing some blogger appreciation, yes? Thoughts?
On that note, I hope you all have a delicious, relaxing weekend, enjoying some autumn love.*
*Autumn is such a tease in the desert. Last weekend was beautiful and crisp. But this week? Back in the hundreds. In October. This is my third autumn here and I am still not used to it. Cry face.
