This Bookish Update is something different than usual, because this will only be to keep you updated on what is happening with my life right now and I’ll also tell you where I’m with my current reading.
This week has been some intense for me, first I’ve been with a lot of work and family stuffs for which I feel that I haven’t been as focused with the blog as always, that makes me feel a little guilty, because I don’t want to disappoint you, but at the same time I know that you all are the most understanding people on the planet so I know you feel me.
On the other hand, as most of you know, this week we found out about the new conditions of NetGalley and Goodreads, which will directly affect bloggers and international authors, and this has been so disappointed and maybe sounds silly to you but really every time I tried to read, I thought about this and it made me feel sad, I can’t help it, I have a super sensitive Hufflepuff heart so this has hurt me a lot.
Anyway, I feel much better now. I’ve been thinking that although all this continues in this way we must face it in a positive way, working even harder for what we want, which is simply to be part of this community, having the same rights as anyone.
I’ve seen many silly confrontations on Twitter, something like US Bloggers VS Intl Bloggers, and I think it is absurd, there is no such thing guys, we all love the same thing and we must stay together. I personally have always found a lot of support in this community, and as an Intl Blogger, I think it is not right to put everyone in the same bag, you know?, I’ve seen alot of US bloggers talking about this problem, supporting us and expressing their love to us, so I think starting a war between us, for a subject that is only in the publishers and the pages owners hands, doesn’t make sense. From here, from my small place in the world, I’ll always prioritize the union and the support beetween us.
Moving on to my current reading, I’ve only read 1 book this week and that book is The Rose Society (The Young Elite #2) by Marie Lu, which I haven’t yet finished, but I’m loving it, it’s so incredible !, I don’t know why it took me so long to decide to read this trilogy, so far it only gets better and better, I think I’ve about 50 pages left, so I think I may be finishing it today and uploading my review tomorrow so everyone can know my thoughts about it.
I know that this is probably the most random post ever, I felt that I wanted you to know everything that was happening right now with me and how all this has made me feel overwhelmed and anxious. But I’m already feeling much better and I want to thank you as always for the support, I love you guys and I only wish you the best.
I hope that from next week everything will return to normal I have many incredible books that I want to read and I’m super excited about it !.
