Updates: A Floriday and a Reading Plan
Kel Wednesday, July 08, 2015My Floriday (day in Florida) went off without a hitch. I made both my flights, survived them with minimal wear and tear, and got where I needed to go. It really was a short day, though. I got to hang out with my sister since she was my ride on the hour-long drive to and from the airport, but I feel like all but three hours of the day was traveling. (I know it was more than that, but it felt really quick.) Still, I got to see lots of family I haven't seen in a while (and heard many jokes about my pale, pale skin), got to celebrate the grandpa's 90th birthday and the grandparents' 66th anniversary, and got away without burning to a crisp in the hot Florida sun.

What about you guys? Did you do anything fun over the holiday weekend?
I had semi-high expectations for Midnight Thief, especially after seeing so many 5-star reviews for it. Luckily, those expectations have faded in the year it's been sitting on my shelf, so I went in with mostly fresh eyes. Good news: it was a mildly entertaining, quick read. Bad news: see tomorrow's review.Currently Reading:
I'm trying to do a bit of genre jumping back and forth to keep things fresh and keep the reading schedule moving. I did the math and, if I don't take Netflix breaks (as I'm prone to do) and read at least two books (from the review pile) each week, I have a shot at finishing them all before school starts.
Which reminds me...I've never done ARC's before (just eARC's) and am a little confused on sending in my review. Anya had a great post about when to send the email, but I feel like I'm missing a few details. Do I just email it to whichever publicity email I can find on the ARC? Do most of you prefer sending it ahead of time or later with a live link? Do you include the review copy in the email itself? Any and all thoughts are appreciated!
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne! In which a thief joins up with assassins, things get stolen and people die. :)
