Taking a Break for Entertainment
All the new releases are calling my name. I am trying to avoid those at all costs. I want my friends to read them first and give me their opinions. This way I do not waste my week hiatus reading fluff or filler. I am settled on reading a few novellas by one of my favorite authors and combining that with rereading books for their comfort. Yes, I know most wouldn’t see a reread as entertaining. I actually find them stress relieving. I’ve read the story before. I know the direction it flows in. I know what to expect next. I can tap into the emotions that the story elicited the first or third time around. I am currently rereading my way through the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series- again or should I say, again and again… Yes, it isn’t masterpiece worthy, but there is simply something in the story that trips my trigger and entertains the hell out of me even as I laugh at mistakes LKH made. Actually, that last part makes me feel better about my writing- if a seasoned author can make mistakes, it’s not the end of the world when I do. I can laugh at myself and move on. I am reading a few novellas by Kitty Thomas- she is sick and twisted, and just gets me. She writes a story I can relate to and not feel judged for my strangeness.
So please forgive my shitty reviews. Not that they will be one star- just not well thought out and organized in the fashion I am accustomed. Right now my brain is fried from thinking too much, so it will be to the point with a few of my thoughts scattered in, but that’s it!
I also want to apologize to those Authors who wish Wicked Reads to Read for Review. I just do not have the time at the moment. I would love for my partner, Amber, on Wicked Reads fb page to review those for me. But I want to keep the reviews consistently mine. I will try to pepper in a few read&review for Authors when I can squeeze them in. So, please take no offense if I don’t get back with you in a timely manner. It also depends on my mood since I read certain genres with certain moods. It’s kind of hard to get into erotica when you feel frumpy or read romance when your hormones demand that romance is dead. & I can only take so much YA since I am a grown woman. I enjoy all these genres just only as the mood dictates. A psycho vamp read is great when I am angry. lol!
I’ll be spending my time on Wicked Reads on facebook, pinning on Pinterest, reading some awesome stuff, and writing craptastic reviews.
Hope everyone is relaxed and entertained! & I always have time to offer recommendations so please ask!!!
And a plea to those who have read Restraint: Please share the book with friends that like that sort of read. Also, tbr list me on goodreads. I know I’ve said this over and over- so just one more time. I need feedback, especially while I step back from writing Unleashed. I don’t mind if it’s negative just as long as it’s constructive. Please rate/review on Amazon and Goodreads. Word of mouth is the most important thing to a self published author, especially a unknown author trying to get her book out to the masses. Please & Thank You!
