Announcement: Losing Interest in Things so Changes are Coming

It's important I get this out of the way. Lately I am not reading as much as I used to and that has made me come to reflect that it might just be that I don't really have an interest in it. And in truth that is why I always valued reading (besides the knowledge it gained me) because it allowed me a way to distract myself from anything that was bothering me but as I said not anymore. 

It's like when I am reading the pleasure is there but it is lessened. Not only that but some days when I think about getting some reading done I just can't find the will. 

And the more this happens the more it reminds me that something is missing. It's not a pleasant feeling. It's actually stressing me out, so I have decided to focus on movie and music reviews instead because at this time music is the only thing that is having a positive affect on me and that is being powerful enough to distract me. 

So without further ado. More movie reviews (although probably not even those, lack of interest) and music reviews will be happening on here. That said, I'll still continue Latest in Blog Visiting and Giveaway Hints.

Book Mail: The Haters by Jesse Andrews and More (May 2016)

These past two months, April and May, I have won tons of book giveaways. In addition, I bought some books and in one case like Sunborn Rising I'll be reviewing based on a personal request I put in. 

Advance Reader copy of Admiral by Sean Danker: I won this on a Twitter book giveaway. I'll certainly be reviewing.

Latest in Blog Visiting: May 13-May 19, 2016

Check out!
The favorite blogs of the week and why their content made them the favorite of the week of May 13-May 19, 2016. 

1. Nick and Nereyda's Infinte Book Playlist blog: I had the pleasure of reading Nick and Nereyda's write-up about how they handle co-blogging on their blog. It was great to get some advice from them because to be honest co-blogging with Jesse is not always easy. I don't ever regret opening up my blog to blog alongside someone else but coordinating is difficult and I agree with Nick and Nereyda, communicating, is key.

All in all the post really helped me and I hope to use some of their tips to better myself in communicating with Jesse.

2. Civilian Reader blog: I checked out a guest post by author Paul Cornell over at Stefan's blog merely out of curiosity. 

A slow week for Latest in Blog Visiting but I was really too busy to do much blog visiting this past week. Since I have been putting my Spotify music subscription to use and listening to music, while pushing myself to read faster so that I can begin Sunborn Rising by Aaron Safronoff. And balancing these two things along with a few other things hasn't been easy.
