Happy August! Another month has come and gone, and yet again I am baffled as to how it is already August. I really dislike how fast yet slow time drags on, exacerbated by the pandemic. I also took another unplanned hiatus for the past couple of weeks because I just couldn’t bring myself to write any content. I’m becoming more aware of my cycles of productivity now, so hopefully I can get adequately ahead before I turn into a potato again.
It’s the end of an era, friends. Well, not entirely but I like to be dramatic. This post marks my last separate book haul on Reader Voracious as I will be incorporating book hauls in my monthly adventure logs instead moving forward. I know this is a bit of a re-reversal as hauls really came back in March of this year (I’m nothing if not indecisively chaotic), but this decision feels right with the new structure of my wrap-ups.
While the majority of book bloggers are hobbyists doing it for their love of books, it’s possible to earn passive income from your blog through affiliate marketing. Considering that we talk about and review books, sharing affiliate links on our posts is a logical and useful addition to your blog so that visitors can click a link to buy from the retailer of their choice directly from your post.
As a self-proclaimed Poe Hoe, it should come as no surprise that I was beyond ecstatic when this anthology was announced… and I purchased it in three formats (eBook, Hardcover, audio). I’m not usually a big fan of anthologies but overall am incredibly impressed with this one; let me just tell you that “It’s Carnival!” by Tiffany D. Jackson pops into my head at least once a week because it is so. freaking. good. Also sapphic Anabel Lee made me cry.
Look, I know that I say something along these lines every month but how the heck is it already July? Time truly flies the older you get, and sadly it seems to fly when you’re not having fun as well. Gotta love that “life is passing me by” feeling, amirite?
It’s been a couple of weeks since I read For the Wolf, but I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s the Beauty and the Beast & Red Riding Hood -inspired mashup that I didn’t know I needed and has grown into my heart like a invasive vine.
For the Wolf features a medium-burn romance with a broody and misunderstood guy, sisters who would do anything for one another, and an enthralling & lush writing style. TL;DR this book has no business being this good and it now lives in my head rent-free.
