Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.
October 12th – This morning I had an extremely hard decision to make about a book, I was asked to read and review Obstacles by Chris Reardon after 14% I could read no further, for me the book needed to be seriously looked at by an editor, so I stopped reading and decided to write an appraisal of what I had written. I think this is only the second book I have been unable to write a review for. Looking on Amazon the book has a varied selection of reviews, several people gave similar thoughts to me, whilst others raved about the book. I do hope the author is open enough to consider the points I made.
Have taken on 3 more books to review today in my ever growing pile. Posted my review of Shared Skies by Josephine O’Brien, a YA fantasy set in the UK which I really enjoyed. Next up A Fairy Tale In New York for Nicky Wells who will be launching her book in December ready for Christmas.
October 13th – My morning helping at school, then a friend had some books she had finished reading and offered them to me, I took some for me and others to give away. Picked up litter on my way home.
October 14th – Launched my new feature Rosie’s Avid readers today. Reviews from real people who might say “I’ve just read this really good book…”. Dropped some money into a Macmillan cancer collection box.
October 15th – Cleaned my house from top to bottom and threw out some old clothes. Am reading Midnight Sky by Jan Ruth and really enjoying it.
October 16th – Walked into town this afternoon, to borrow some books from the library and picked up litter.
October 17th – An overdue haircut this morning, left a tip. Launched The Friday Challenge with Shelley Wilson, inspiring people to try new things and change themselves for the better. http://wp.me/p2Eu3u-5MH
October 20th – Today I’m reading Craving by Sofia Grey A biker psychic and a girl who just might be his salvation. Now I do enjoy a psychic read so I have been snuggled on the sofa for most of the afternoon. Posted my review of Midnight Sky for Jan Ruth.
