Around The Bookish World: Week-In-Review

Welcome to this week’s edition of Bookish news! It has been an interesting week, with the continued fallout over the Goodreads saga over deleted shelves and reviews and dinosaur erotica is the new thing (oh I hope not) to get your claws into…

 

First up, Goodreads has clarified their guidelines about their new shelving and reviewing policy which they outlined in their Feedback forum. They also have apologised and emailed to the affected members whose reviews and shelves were deleted a few weeks ago when the new policy was implemented. They also have offered to try to regain those shelves/reviews from a backup server so the users could back up their copies of their deleted data. Although many have remarked this was too little and too late to undo the damage and damaged trust about posting reviews on the site.

Meanwhile, one of their competitors, Booklikes, who seem to …

Interview with Diana Quincy + Giveaway

I LOVE historical romances. They are my alltime favourites, a good, romantic HR just warms my heart. But when I read Diana Quincy‘s debut novel Seducing Charlotte I got an even better and more complex experience: it was a witty, intelligent and captivating romance I couldn’t resist, so I couldn’t have been happier to learn it was the first novel in a brand new series! Now book#2 just got released and to celebrate the release of Tempting Bella I got to interview Diana Quincy and quiz her about the series, weird research findings and favourite time periods. So take a seat and join us, you could even win some great prizes at the end! 😉 

Stella: Hi Diana, welcome to Book Lovers Inc! 🙂 Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Diana: Hi Stella, thanks for having me! Let’s see…I’m a former television reporter who decided to start …

Title: Cursed (Fallen Sirens, #1)
Author: S.J. Harper
Genre: urban fantasy
Release date: October 1, 2013 by Roc

Description:

Meet FBI Agents Emma Monroe and Zack Armstrong.
She’s cursed. He’s damned. Together, they make one hell of a team.

Emma Monroe is a Siren, cursed by the gods and bound to earth to atone for an ancient failure. She’s had many names and many lives, but only one mission: redemption. Now that she works missing persons cases for the FBI, it could be just a rescue away. Unless her new partner leads her astray.

Special Agent Zack Armstrong just transferred into the San Diego Field Office. He’s a werewolf, doing his best to beat back the demons from his dark and dangerous past. As a former Black Ops sniper, he’s taken enough lives. Now he’s doing penance by saving them.

Emma and Zack’s very first case draws them deep into the realm of the paranormal, and forces them …

Best Books of September: Book Lovers Pick of the Litter

We’re here to squee all over you! Yes, that’s right, it’s time for our “Pick of the Litter” post. And who better to lead things off this month than our resident snarky Dragon Lover! I can’t believe Cass found a book she enjoyed that did not involved dragons. OH NOES! The sky is falling…

Cass: Perdition (Dred Chronicles #1) by Ann Aguirre.

This book was a ton of fun! I loved the idea of a prison ship in space, and how The Man (government? corporations?) just decided to fuck worrying about guards and rioting and shit. They’re in space! Let me figure their own shit out. Leaving room for the Glorious Dred Queen to emerge. I have a sneaking suspicion future books will show how The Man rues their lackadaisical approach to prison oversight and maintenance.

 

 

Stella: Some Like It Spicy (A Perfect Recipe #1)

Whoooo, it’s Sunday! There’s been some, shall we say, DRAMA going on. Which I have decided to copy with in the traditional Alaskan way. GLACIER MARGARITAS FOR EVERYONE!

Some people didn’t want to come with me. Until I told them I was buying. I also planned out how I’ll spend $1 million dollars if I ever win the lottery. Then we did a $100 million version, but I ran out of frivolous things to blow it on and started doing good deeds. Which is less fun to drunkenly contemplate. (Whoo! lets give half a mill to Planned Parenthood so they can do abortions in Texas. Whoo! Wait, I’d rather talk about the luxurious vintage train vacation again….)

Either amount would be one helluvan accomplishment seeing as how I never play the lottery. Maybe I could marry money? Who wants to marry a book reviewing workaholic legal aid attorney?

While I start reviewing …

Around The Bookish World: Week-In-Review

Welcome to this week’s news post and oh boy has it been eventful with major announcements and more drama in the offering such as more on the fallout on the new changes with Goodreads.

 

 

Last week, I reported that Goodreads will be changing its terms of services over the use of shelving names which now users cant be based on authors and their behaviours. This has upset a lot of members, especially the power users who have volunteered their time and energy on the site as librarians improving the database and highlighting bugs. But the feedback discussion has illustrated some important points about the choices on how users shelve and catalogue their books especially in the instances if an author has homophobic or racist views or have a history with child pornography. I think many readers would like to be aware of examples of these to decide whether they want …

Holy shit, it’s Sunday already? Where did my Saturday go?! Hell, where did my week go?

It is 28 degrees Fahrenheit as I type this, so in case there are any doubters out there….

 Which means it is clearly time to stock up on books! Before the road is closed for avalanche blasting, or the internet is down due to storms, or I have a psychotic break in the coming darkness. (Yes, the singular is correct. There is one road.) This week we’re stockpiling….

Marlene: Corroded (The St. Croix Chronicles, #3) by Karina Cooper.

My rival, a collector of bounties like myself, has murdered one of my own. In consequence, I have been removed from my house, my staff, and all who would support me. I have nowhere else to turn, so I beg asylum within the Midnight Menagerie, London’s decadent pleasure garden.

Micajah Hawke’s dominance there will …
