Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Top Ten of 2019

I finally admitted to myself that I don't have the mental or emotional energy this year to do the Romancies. I went through a reading slump that lasted longer than any I've ever had since I started blogging/talking books online (~2009). I think I accepted too many ARCs and got too far away from my "themed months" that helps to keep me reading a mixture of sub-genres and older and newer published. I also think reviewing ARCs has turned too much into PR work for me, personally. I joined Instagram (wonderful people on there and probably the most "positive" vibe) and adding just that one more social media account seemed to drain my energy. Anyway, the big wake-up call was missing out on Halloween Bingo on BookLikes, I love that community game! I think I have 19 ARCs left to review and then I'm taking a big step back from ARCs. 


I wish everyone a happy, healthy, joyful, and copious amounts of reading time in the New Year :)


Clicking on the book cover takes you to my review or GoodReads book page if I didn't.
