Wow. I'm 19 reviews behind. How did that happen?!? Lucky for me, this seems to be a trend and both Weekly Geeks and Natasha are conspiring to get me caught up.
First, Weekly Geeks. This week Becky revisits an oldie but a goodie:
1. In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you hope to finish this week. (Be sure to leave a link to this post either in the comments of this post, or in the Mister Linky below.)
2. Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. (Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.)
3. Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).
4. Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!
Okay, so here it is. The list of unreviewed books:
The Onion Girl, Charles de Lint
The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop, Lewis Buzbee
First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria, Eve Brown-Waite
Fragile Eternity, Melissa Marr
Lipstick Jihad, Azadeh Moaveni
The Flying Troutmans, Miriam Toews
Firmin, Sam Savage
The Gangster We Are All Looking For, le thi diem thuy
The Lost Legends of New Jersey, Frederick Reiken
Bound South, Susan Rebecca White
The Lost Hours, Karen White
Little Bee, Chris Cleave
The God of War, Marisa Silver
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
The Widow's Season, Laura Brodie
The Only True Genius in the Family, Jennie Nash
The Last Beach Bungalow, Jennie Nash
Bitter Sweets, Roopa Farooki
The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, Katherine Howe
Help me out here people! Ask me any question (or two or three or four) about any of the above books (or two or three or four). Just leave your question(s) in the comments.
On Friday night and/or Saturday, I'll be participating in the Bloggiesta, and I'll use your questions to get me started on the
10 bajillion 19 reviews I need to write.
What is the Bloggiesta you ask? Well, besides an excuse to break out the chips and guacamole, it's a chance to get caught up on blog related things. Sombreros are optional.
I'll be working on all those reviews, as well as updating the Weekly Geeks Community page and my own neglected sidebar. At least, that's the plan. I might just hang out and eat chips and guacamole and dream of Mexico.
