Welcome to the Let’s Talk weekly discussion meme!
Originally hosted by Melissa from i swim for oceans, Smash & Kt took her original inspiration, and made it their own, expanding it to more than just books. Let’s get personal (but respectfully so) and learn more about one another! Each week, a different question will be posted along with a place to link up your posts and visit other people’s responses. This meme is definitely meant to bring out conversation and meet new people. So, Let’s Talk!
Be honest, do you ever get embarrassed by some of the posts from when you first started blogging due to the lessor quality? Yes, growth and experience is natural, but do you ever get the urge to go back and “fix” things?
With GEMS like this how could I ever be embarrassed:
- Book 3: How to Be Single by Liz Tuccillo (Yes these were my old titles)
February 5, 2009
This book was a decent read. It was hard to get into but the idea of the book was a good one. Basically a woman in her late-30′s decides to figure out how single women all over the world handled being single. She visited France, Australia, India, and a few other places. It was a good idea. Along the way, you also get updates on her friends back in New York (this is where the book was a little thin and harder to read) and their problems with their singledom. If this sounds familiar it is because Liz Tuccillo is one of the writers of the book He’s Just Not that into You and also a writer for the show Sex in the City. Her writing is good, there are just parts of the book I did not find entertaining.
- Book 18: Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse, #9) by Charlaine Harris
June 2, 2009
I love the latest book in this series. Mostly because it involves the Weres quite a bit (some of my favorite characters) and because it evolves Sookie’s relationship with what I feel is the right Vampire for her.
and just so you know I didn’t get any better towards the end of 2009
- Book 90: Full Moon Rising by Keri Arthur (last book read that year)
December 14, 2009
I really wish I could pick 2.5 for the review. I really like Riley but I found the book a hard read in quite a few parts. It might be because it was a first of the series, I will try the second book eventually. I think it is an interesting world that the author has developed but she needed to spend a bit more on character development.
Needless to say you can totally tell that I was only writing reviews for myself. I didn’t know there was a book blogging community and I was simply tracking what I had read. Yes, I would love to go back and review these books better but I won’t. I feel it is important to know where you come from and embrace the embarrassment of reviews past!
