Books I got this week
From the library:
Posts on the blog:
- Review: This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner ★★★½
- Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger ★★★★
- Heartbeat Weekly (77): New Design!
I’ve decided to participate in ARC April this month, I’m pretty excited!! I’ll also be seeing Cinda Williams Chima this Wednesday at my local bookstore!
Also, Novel Heartbeat has a new face!! It’s been a very long time since I changed the design, and I’m thrilled to have a fresh new look, while still sticking with the theme it had. I like the color scheme, so I don’t want to change that. But I was getting really sick of the font, it needed a makeover! I’m super happy with it now, I love the new fonts. They look much cleaner! I also decided to go with a dark background for the post section, which is a big change for me. I tend to stick with lighter backgrounds because it’s easier on the eyes. Dark backgrounds usually make me hesitant, so we’ll see how long it lasts.
What do you guys think?
Honest opinions please! Is it better white, or do you like the black? How do you feel about the new design? Also, don’t forget I have a new blog button! I tried replacing the old one in my media section but it was glitching for some reason -___-
What I’ve been up to this week:
Not much, sadly. I got everything sorted out with insurance after my boo-boo last week and will hopefully be fixing my car soon. *sighs* Haven’t seen what my new rate is going to look like yet….
The weather has been crazy! It was super warm for a day or two, then it stormed like mad with ridiculous (and kind of scary) winds, then it freaking dropped below freezing and snowed. Stupid Ohio. I’m ready for the warmth to come and stay already!
