Non-Bookish News:

I had a pretty low key week. Summer vacation for a teacher is awesome. I had lunch with my dad on Tuesday but otherwise, I didn’t leave the house! My husband and I bought a new bed and it was delivered Friday. So far, I like it! We wanted something firmer than our previous bed and one that wouldn’t retain the heat so much! The new one is definately firmer, but I am not sure it dispels the heat any better.

Another typical teacher summer vacation tradition? Doctors appointments! Seriously, I schedule them all-physicals, yearly check ups, dentists. So, every Monday for the next month I have a medical appointment of some kind. Not my favorite way to spend time, but it has to be done.

I’ve been reading lots, but I haven’t been feeling the reviews. I feel like everything I say about a book is trite and I can’t think of anything original! What do you all do when you hit a writing slump (one of the MANY reasons I could never be an author!)?

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

    Your week sounds like it was a pretty good one. It seems like every appointment for my kids happens this month. Lots of sitting and waiting means some decent reading though. Enjoy those new books. ?

  2. Ooh Stray Magic. I read a Kelly Meding book recently (one of her older ones) and really liked it, so I need to try more of her stuff. And yay for summer vacation- sometimes not having to leave the house almost IS like a vacation lol. Hope this next week is good too and full of good reading!

  3. I have that same dilemma when writing reviews. I am by no means a creative type. I used to write technical documents, and I also try to not be spoilery. It makes putting forth some real thoughts in a review a challenge. Changing my format helped a lot. I like to use a Who? What? Why? format with most of my contemporary romance reviews, and my pro/con lists for my nutshell reviews. I sometimes throw in lists, good-bad-ugly, gif, and quote reviews too. I have done a mood board, and man! It was hard, but I was happy with the result.

  4. It sounds normal and pretty great for the week. I love days when I don’t have to leave the house! I wasn’t smart enough to put medical appts every Monday; I crammed them mostly into last week, every day. Only two more this week. I get the feeling sometimes that I say the same thing in every review, especially since I try not to spoil so I talk about the characters, the aspects of the plot, and the world-building. But just the way you felt about it may be helpful to your readers. Anne – Books of My Heart

  5. This entire year I’ve been in a review slump… I just haven’t been feeling the reviews. I use to read and at least a day to three days later write a review. Now I go a week or more before even writing one on a book that hans’t been reviewed yet. What have I done to help the issue, I’ve stopped accepting ARC’s and am reading whatever I’m in the mood for. I’m also doing a lot of re-reading well listening for the first time on books I’ve already read. Nothing much is going on in my neck of the woods. It’s summer vacation for my son and so I’m finding things for him to do. Have a great week.

    Summer vacation is almost here for my kids. Still have three more days. Yay for a new mattress. We have a firm one and like it. Reviews can be tough. I need to write a bunch but don’t feel like it. Have a great week!

  7. Ahh lowkey weeks can totally be the best of ever! I’m glad you’re having a good holiday (and hope you get lots of great books read there :D) And hehe, sometimes I don’t feel like writing reviews or have the words for it either and I AM an author. ?So that’s pretty awkward hahah.

    Awww, thanks for the shout out boo! You’re the best!

    I hope you enjoy your summer and that your review writing picks up, being in a writing slump sucks so much. I love low key weeks. Those are my favorite so enjoy those days and your new bed. I’m jealous of the new bed. I want one!! 🙂
