Jackie's Forget Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.


Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer aka Kimberley.

I live an uneventful life at the moment.

I watched eight OA segments on Netflix. (I still don’t know what the letters stand for. ‘away’?) Anyway, the “OA” is a girl who has gone batshit crazy. She succeeds in deceiving five others to accomplish her motives to save a ton of people from dying in a school shooting. I don’t know how she knows these things, but she believes herself an angel and that she can heal people by making crazy dance moves. I think she suffers trauma from being kidnapped and held captive for so many years in a basement. The captor/scientist is a cuckoo, and the whole thing is strange. I am intrigued, though. Still, I have no idea what the next episode will bring.

In other news…

I decide to sign up for Netgalley right? Because all’s I want is an ARC for my next favorite read. Ok. It turns out most arcs are e-books, which is, not quite what I expected, but that’s fine. I am a person who usually doesn’t read a book unless I hear lots of good things about it. I don’t get that impression from perusing the selection of titles they had. I wouldn’t want to read any of them. Ok? So, I realize even if there is something I’d like to request, it probably wouldn’t be available in Canada. I decide I can’t be bothered with that; it’s a waste of time and frustration. I’d just as soon wait for a book to be released. I know we can’t always get what we want, but in this case, it just isn’t worth it.
Netgalley did allow me an advanced e-book of Twisted Desire by Sharon Kay from Victory Editing before I canceled my account.

You know what I thought about Twisted Desire?

It reminds me of a comic book without pictures. I could not imagine a thing happening because there were no beautiful pictures to look at, and the writing was awful. You wouldn’t think that from the cover right? In fact, I did not know what I was reading although I tried. hard. It hurt my brain. So much, I could not continue after two chapters. I really couldn’t. That is how bad it was. Sorry!

  1. Sorry your NetGalley experience wasn’t the best. I imagine it is frustrating when you’re not from the US to get approved for some books. I actually find myself getting frustrated that I’m not from Australia sometimes because I seem to love Australian authors but never get approved for their books. I also find that you have to weed through a lot of books on NG because a lot of self-published authors use it to promote their books. I’ve found some real gems when it comes to self-published authors, but most of the time the book cover is enough to deter me. I hope you enjoy Twisted Desire though. Have a great week!

      well, I think that is the best way to go. Who wants to read tons of books they don’t enjoy anyway? That’s awesome that you and I like the OA.

    I’m in the middle of The OA now and am baffled frankly and not that impressed, but I’ll probably finish since I hate to leave a series unfinished. And Netgalley I have an account but haven’t requested anything yet- soon maybe? I like the idea of ARC’s but right now I mostly just read what I buy.

    Hope you have a great week. Now I’m tempted to go watch some OA and see what happens next…

    I’ve finished The OA and was a little disappointed overall. I loved the premise, but…. it didn’t quite get there for me. (And you will learn what the OA stands for by the end of the season.)

      What? I thought the season had finished with episode 8.
