Decide My Next Read! (poll)

Today I did something freeing. Something that lightened my mental load even if only by a little. Today, I DNFEd a book that had been on my TBR for nearly a year. It had got to the point that I felt like I had to force myself to sit and read this book and I received no enjoyment from the experience. It just left me feeling more and more bitter with every passing page. So, even though I was reading this book as part of a reading discussion group, I quietly slipped it back onto my shelf where it shall stay.

Rant | Book Title Changes

Today I will subjecting you to something that makes my soul burn with the fire of a thousand suns- book title changes post release. I am a fairly easy going person which is not something I could have said ten years ago. In my early twenties I was uptight and refused to bend over the smallest of detail.
