For Review

I loved the first book and it ended on a cliffhanger so I am excited to finally get the sequel, The Revolution of Ivy.

I gotta give it to Edelweiss, they always have the best historical romances. I am happy to get a chance to dive into An American in Scotland and Dukes Prefer Blondes.

What books did you get this week? Have you read any of the ones I got?

My Week:

I am in a better place this week. Things aren’t perfect and they still kinda suck but I am content for now with my current situation. This weekend will be a busy one for me. I need to make/sew my broken doll Halloween custom for the Halloween wedding I am attending on Halloween. I am also finally going to see The Martian in theaters this Sunday. So excited.

I just wanted to let you guys know that I don’t have as much time to read anymore so I can only do 2 reviews a week now. But I will still be posting 5-6 times a week like I have been for the past couple months. Unfortunately the 7 posts a week with 4 reviews from my early years is no longer possible. I have also been moving away from my full name and am trying to become just Jennifer from Bad Bird Reads. I used my full name in the beginning because I thought I wanted to be an author and wanted to gain readers through my blog, but my dream has changed. I want my social media to be more about my blog, not me. I changed my twitter to @JenBadBirdReads and Goodreads now says Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads). These changes should not affect anyone who follows me. I am slowly changing all my comment names to Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads). Same with Google+. I think that’s it so far. I updated my social media icons, so there should be no interruptions. I feel good about the change.

    Glad this week was better. How fun … I tried to convince my friend to have a Halloween wedding, but nooo her husband sucks. lol. Yeah, I don’t use my last name at all in connection with my blogging stuff. Hell, I wish I would’ve used a fake first name even.

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      LOL, fake first name? Why? What are you hiding!!!!!!???

      If I ever get married, knock on wood, I will have a Halloween wedding, and I will invite you, Christy Noname from Noneofyourbusiness. 😉

    It’s good to know you’re better even if it’s not wonderful yet 🙂 To be honest, 2 reviews a week is easier for me to handle, simply because I can’t visit all the blogs I’m following, but I’ll do my best to keep up when you come back to your usual routine. *hugs*

    You certainly sound more positive which is great to hear. I hope things continue to improve for you. A Halloween wedding? Oh that would be fun! I can’t remember the last wedding I was at-I think I was a kid at the time! Enjoy your books!

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      Me too! I was a 5 year old flower girl at the last wedding I went to.

    I’ll have to check some of them out and if they are to be published in 2016 I’ll have to request some. I’m not requesting any more books that release this year. Glad that you’re better and everything is going well. Happy Saturday!

    Change can be good. 😉

    I hear you on the reading, it seems this year I haven’t had as much time either and I’m not sure what that means for my blog, I guess I will figure it out as I go as well. Thankfully I have some old reviews stored up that should help for while. Maybe it will just mean time of “more “fun” post instead of review. 😉

    I am glad your week was better this week, even if not perfect. I hope you have a fun, scary time at the Halloween wedding. I have never been at a wedding but a Halloween wedding sounds interesting.
    Read as much as you want, just as long as it stays fun. Reading shouldn’t become work. Writing can be a good hobby, too. I do a little, only a hobby, though.
    I hope next week is better still.

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      Yeah, writing is a hobby for me now. I am so excited for the Halloween wedding.

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      Exactly, I just want to have fun with my blog, not stress about it.

    glad to hear that things are looking up for you hon! hope they get even better.
    American in Scotland oh my…me want

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      the Martian was soooooooooooooo good. I had to scrap the broken doll idea. After sewing the skirt I look horrible in it. Now I am going to go as a ninja turtle. lol

    Hey, hope your weeks are getting better with each day.

    The cover of your new book looks stunning. I’ve been bouncing between 2 or 3 reviews a week myself. With work and family and all sorts of things going on, that’s all I can get to do. I even cut back on the additional posts. It’s a bummer but you have to do what you have to do. 🙂

    • Jennifer (Bad Bird Reads)

      I know, it sucks. I wish I could do 3 reviews, but it’s hard enough to get through one or two books a week now.

    It’s good to know you know what you are after now. I still have my full name because I am someone who does want to become an author in the end, but it is good that you know what you want and have started to work towards that.
