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 wish were movies.
I shared my movie casting skills for The Heroes of Olympus.
I reviewed Gwenda Bond’s The Woken Gods.
I reviewed Kelly Walker’s No One’s Angel.
I asked what type of blogger you are with a nifty quiz!
IN MY WORLD
I attended the Manila International Book Fair. Fun times! I didn’t get to meet that many bloggers after all, apart from the twins at The Twins Read, simply because the venue was a can of tuna at the time, and I couldn’t even find the right stalls, let alone the right bloggers. Either way, there is much time for another event, one that hopefully does not require an empty wallet by the end of the evening!
I contemplated giving up on ARCs. And for common reasons. The deadlines are starting to take a toll, and I am fearing for my request to review ratio. I’m also having a hard time getting over the fact that the best ones are limited to bloggers on the other side of the globe (thus inspiring my next blogger bite post). But of course, I have my doubts. I’ll have to think twice before doing something potentially unwise.
I realized the due date for prom asking is near. Seriously? Who even gives prom asking a deadline?! It’t not as if boys, and girls (oh, the badassery) can just ask someone out overnight, after mustering the courage enough to do so. This is a long, painstaking process I know, and I am aware that most of us, admittedly or otherwise, want a date for a night to remember. So come on, no pressure need be added. I heave a huge sigh.
