Well, well, well … the results are in, and I think I can determine, from the results, that no one gives a flying crap about Spindle Fire??? Can I safely assume no one really liked this book??? Because it got NO votes — zip, zero, zilch, nada! Poor Spindle Fire.
Will anyone really care if I cheat and start the readathon early? ‘Cause, like, I’m almost finished with A Fierce and Subtle Poison, and I don’t know if I can wait until midnight on Sunday to start reading another book…
WHO RELEASED ME INTO A LIBRARY!
…when I already have a TBR of like 10 books and a shelf full of un-readables?!?

So I wandered into a library today. I was returning A Fierce and Subtle Poison, but then somehow came out with 3 more books, even though I knew I had six books to read this month with the readathon??? I don’t know how this happened — I think I blacked out.
I am cursed to be a slow reader for all eternity…
Click on images for a link to Goodreads! Or can I just blame it on the books I’ve been reading? This book … I don’t know, on one hand, I was like: this had potential, but on the other hand, I was like: WHY HASN’T THIS BOOK ENDED ALREADY. It wasn’t an over-extremely big book… It was small, and I should have been done with it several days ago. But I wasn’t too eager to read it. I got halfway, and I think I just lost motivation for the story. I wasn’t really connected to the characters, and even though the setting was a place I’d never read about before (Puerto Rico), I wasn’t really getting the vibe, I guess. A Fierce and Subtle Poison will probably not be very highly rated, sadly.
DEAR READER: Have you read this one?
Once again, Game of Thrones was the only thing I watched.
Guys, this was such a good episode. First, we had Dany and Jon meeting *squeal* and how about Lady Olenna with that mic drop!?!? DAYUM GIRL. Then there was the Sansa and Bran reunion (Sansa, very emotional; Bran, 404: emotion cannot be found), and ugh, I’m bitter about Casterly Rock. Like, Tyrion had such a brilliant plan — he had built himself a hoe-door, lol too soon? — but Cersei outsmarted them. Does anyone else think Cersei is acting more “Mad King” than our lovely Dany is??? (Let the theories stew … Also, does anyone believe Jon may also be a Targaryen??? Yeah, look THAT theory up!)
DEAR READER: What did you think of this week’s episode? Can you believe tomorrow will be the middle of the season!? I CAN’T.
These were some things I blogged about this past week
- #TopTenTuesday Really Old Books I Own That I Haven’t Read (Yet)
- July Recap + Hello August!
- Last week’s recap // Week 4 Recap
I PROMISE I am working on that Roar review, I’ve just been sidetracked playing Pokémon Go and taking over gyms and doing raids (I GOT A MOLTRES TODAY), so don’t judge me for nerding out on a mobile game. ;D
DEAR READER: Did you have a good week? What did you read, and what do you plan on reading next?
Rosie has had a SUPER busy day. She’s so ready for bed (it’s almost 11 at night). She went swimming with a friend, got a little bit of a tan, and went raiding with some Pokémon Go-playing friends! She participated in two successful raids and got absolutely NO reading done, hehehehe… That is what Sundays are for, though. Have an excellent rest of your weekend, my friends!
