February 15, Friday in Memes #1

The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
Have you ever thought about taking a break from blogging/Booktubing? If you have, how long was the break and what did you learn from it? (submitted by Danielle @ PoetryBooksYA)

My Answer:
I never wanted, but I took a long involuntary break. I was traveling and was not posting anything and then it was just difficult to get back. I had a huge pack of books to overview and I guess I was lazy, but in the end I could not stay any longer away from the blog.

Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Gillion Dumas of Rose City Reader. A weekly meme where readers share the first sentence of the book they are reading and say what they think.

The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice. Join us every Friday and share an excerpt from a book you’ve been reading.

 My Book Beginnings:
A convenience store is a world of sounds.
My 56:
When something was strange, everyone thought they had the right to come stomping in all over your life to figure out why. I found that arrogant and infuriating, not to mention a pain in the neck. Sometimes I even wanted to hit them with a shovel to shut them up, like I did that time in the elementary school.
Outline: This is the book about the woman who works in a convenience store and loves it. But in the modern society it is difficult to understand a person who is satisfied with a part-time low paid job. And every one was still trying to "cure" her. It is a quick read and a bit upsetting.


  1. I like those excerpts, and I feel infuriated on behalf of the character. Judgy people are annoying.

    Here's mine:

    1. The book actually has a lot of philosophical ideas and social observations.

  2. Sounds interesting. I haven't heard of the book before. I am spotlighting Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch this week. Happy reading!

  3. Wow, you took a break when you didn't want to. Fascinating! But at least you got back ok. Thanks for answering my question!

  4. I did the same thing this past summer. I was traveling and really didn't have an opportunity to blog but had lots of time to read. So I ended up with about two months of books to review when I finally got back to the blog. I had to make myself a goal and a check-off sheet to review the sixteen books I was behind...but I did it. My Friday quotes come from Life on Mars

    1. But coming back is so difficult... It needs discipline)))
