This recap was requested by a few of my readers– I’ll be telling you what went down the past week, in and out of Flip That Page, and give you a sneak peek preview of sorts on what to expect for the week to come. Happy blogging! 🙂
ON THE BLOG
I shared ten of the books I think should be required for reading.
My brother interviewed me for a Day Of Debate special.
I reviewed Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys.
I shared the 7 deadly sins of reading.
I discussed social media and promotion.
IN MY WORLD
I splurged on The National Book Store Sale. While it was probably a wiser move to save my money for the Fair, I don’t think I could have helped myself even if I had the means to (and I didn’t, because temptation is Joseph Morgan half naked).
I completed season 3 for both Teen Wolf and Downton Abbey (part A for the former). I know this isn’t one of the more momentous occasions I’ve decided to feature on my recaps, but you guuuuuys. Both seasons were the bomb diggity. If you haven’t already seen them, I suggest you do so. If you haven’t even seen the entire shows, then realize that we do not lie on the same wavelength, and I’d rather we did. Haha! No, really.
I asked my brother if he’d ever consider co-blogging at Flip That Page. I wasn’t seriously asking this question, because I’m honestly not up to giving part of myself up to someone else, not even someone I trust completely. My brother didn’t say yes to this either– he believes he has neither the time nor the patience for it, and I do agree to being satisfied with how he contributes through our weekly debates. He doesn’t do me that many favors.
