I am in the heart of my busy season, working ten hours a day, seven days a week. Thus, although I'm still reading for pleasure, I don't have a ton of energy to write thoughtful reviews for this space.
Fortunately, I like to write about books in general, so expect a variety of bookish posts (plus my photographs & Weekend Cooking), but not too many in-depth reviews over the next couple of weeks.
New Litsy App
If you have iOS I encourage you get the Litsy app. I am totally in love with it, and if anything would stop me from blogging on a regular basis, it would be that app. I'm posting mini reviews of everything I'm reading and keeping track of the books I'm hoping to read. Plus I'm having a ton fun composing photographs to accompany my posts on Litsy. Find me there as BethFishReads (duh!)
If you pop on over to Litsy, you'll be able to see my thoughts on Sweetgirl by Travis Mulhauser (a tense story with good characters), my gushing about Augusten Burroughs's Lust & Wonder (I love all his memoirs and this one is a don't miss), my disappointment with Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr (it was a DNF), and my mini review of the audio of Padma Lakshmi's Love, Loss, and What We Ate (an interesting memoir).
In addition, I've posted in-progress blurbs, a few quotes, and some books I'm adding to my wish list. Litsy is where I'm hanging out these days! I would love to see you there, so be sure to let me know if you've set up an account and what your user name is.
