Well this week was momentous. The Stephanie Perkins cover redesign scandal made some pretty major waves on Thursday and I added my own opinion to the rather large hate-fest that took place on Twitter. Then last night I shared my specific thoughts on the issue—basically STAY AWAY from Laini Taylor.
I was also interviewed by Ashley at booknook, regarding switching from Blogger to WordPress. Check it out!
Oh! And for the first time ever, I requested print ARCs from a publisher. I didn’t start blogging for free books so I don’t much care and was never motivated enough to do it, but it was one of my goals for 2o13 and it’s nice to say I’ve tried.
And that was my week.
