Hey peoples! Quick note before we get to the posts: Serenade, the sequel to Dissonanceby Mariella Hunt, was released this week in ebook format! The cover is absolutely gorgeous, and I got to beta-read for this one, so I can tell you it is really good. ;) You can check out the second book here, and if you haven’t read the first one, you can read my review and find purchase links here. :)

ON TO THE POSTS!

Top 10 Excuses for Buying Books (Not That We Need Excuses) by Emily from Loony Literate. Really funny post. Also, great reasons (not that we need them) to give to non-bibliophiles. ;)

Star Wars vs. Star Trek by Jessi. A super interesting and in-depth post examining the facts behind both universes to determine who is most likely to come out the victor.

ZENITH // So. Many. Trolls and How About We Don't Bully Authors, both by Liz. I haven't read the books she talks about, but I'm sharing the posts because of what she said about trolls bullying authors: it's never okay, especially when trolls crash into other people’s posts and berate them for something they enjoyed. Explaining why they disliked it, even being a little sarcastic, isn’t bad, but being a bully, saying horrible things about the author as a person, that’s a line that should never have been crossed.

And that's it for this week! What's your favorite excuse to use for buying books? How do you handle trolls (if you've ever come in contact with them). Leave a comment and share your favorite post you read this week. I'd love to hear from you. :)

  1. Thanks for the mention!
    I've seen that sort of author bullying. Inhuman by Kat Falls, which was a great book, had a lot of negative reviews on goodreads. I think the people who didn't like it got together and up voted each other's reviews so all the bad ones were at the top. I went and did what I could to up vote the decent reviews. I found it really sad because the author's not very popular, so those reviews might have really hurt her.

      Aw, that is sad! I feel like I've heard of that book; I'll have to look it up. :)

  3. I'm in such need of a good story to read right now, that I don't need any excuse for buying a book. My problem is I've bought two and couldn't finish either one. I don't review books I can't finish. In fact, I go back and try a few times before I give up. As to those Trolls. . .they're everywhere in this world. I liked what Jesi did for that author. That's the best strategy I've heard of.

    1. Yeah, I don't review DNFs anymore either. If I'm not gonna finish, I feel like it's not fair to review it; we'll just kinda both go our separate ways.
      Hope you find a good one that grabs your interest soon!

      And yes. It sucks that the trolls around.
      I know right! I'm gonna have to start doing it whenever I see people just bullying a good author. :)
