It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book blogger hopping....
How do you organize your books for review? Does it work for you or have you had to change it?
I've been trying to decide how to interpret this question. If it's meant in terms of deciding what to read when, I generally follow two guidelines:
1) Is there a due date for the review or an expiry date on the ARC?
2) What am I in the mood to read?
I read a mix of review books and ones I buy myself or receive as gifts for birthday/Xmas etc. I give preference to author requests and NetGalley ARCs, but I slot the others in between as the mood takes me. I like to read a bit of fiction, then some non-fiction, then back to fiction. Other than that, I don't have much to organise per se as I write the reviews straightaway after reading, scheduling them in advance if necessary. My TBR pile generally hovers in the region of 20-30 books, so it's never wildly out of control.
I turn to see Crescentia barreling toward me down the gilded palace hallway, pink silk skirts lifted as she runs and a broad grin spread across her lovely face.
From page 56:
It's the truth, I know it is, but just saying it is enough for me to remember the Theyn's biting into my skin, the Kaiser's cruel eyes on me, reveling in my pain every time he so much as suspected my loyalty to him wasn't bound in iron.
My Current Read
Theodosia was six when
her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered. On
that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia's land and her name. Theo was
crowned Ash Princess - a title of shame to bear in her new life as a
For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own
palace. She's endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser
and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by
burying the girl she was deep inside.
Then, one night, the Kaiser
forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope
of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer
enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword.
And power isn't always won on the battlefield.
