Spotlight Sunday: #03 One with ‘I am too excited to think of a title’

I am so excited that I can’t even type this post. Yes I am going on a vacation to Georgia (the country) in a day. Living in a country where the temperature shoots up to 48 degree Celsius in summer, I will be seeing the snow for the first time in my life. Yay me. So expect me missing a post or two this week (not really I will try my best to schedule them).


Around the blogosphere

So ready for the gossip from round the blogosphere?

1) I am a Spreadsheet enthusiast, but even for me All about book’s attempt to track everything and everything about the books read and challenges taken part is crazy. Just take a look her spreadsheet. Damn, this is so good and it is like a spreadsheet-heaven.

2) Much like the movies, there are books that objectify women and portray them as just symbols of sex and beauty. I found this gem on Write Women Right at Shruti’s blog – a perfect combination of satire and frustration.

3) Why does our TBR shelf hate us? That is because we keep adding books to it and never go back to them. Well, I can’t help you reduce the number of books but this list from Amazon on the 100 books you have to read in your lifetime will definitely add some more.


4) Yeah yeah we all hate stealing, lying and other vices but why do the laws change when it comes to piracy of books? Marta from The Cursed Books puts forth an argument in this post, playing the devil’s advocate. Check it out.

5) I know you all love quotes and here are a few I stumbled upon this week and they are about feminism. There can never be too many of them right?

6) I am sure most of you would have heard about this – The news about another Harry Potter mobile games is here. Are you excited for it? Let me know.

7) Last week we also saw the nominees for Edgar Allen Poe awards announced. And guess what, The Hate U Give is on the list. Yay!

The Hate U Give review

8) Do you publish everything you write? Pl say me that there are a about 25+ unpublished drafts in your blog. The Orangutan Librarian posted the hilarious details about what is lying in her drafts. I promise it is a roller coaster ride there.

9) I found this list of imaginary online dating profiles of awesome book characters and it cannot be more accurate.

10) The sad news of the week is the Broke and the bookish posted a sort of goodbye message on their blog and it was heartbreaking to read that. These amazing ladies will still be online and their top ten tuesday meme will be hosted by that artsy reader girl.

  1. OK, so I have 16 unscheduled drafts on my blog… did that make you feel better? πŸ˜‰
    I love the posts you’ve shared, I’m going through them to check them out now.
    Have fun in Georgia! I’m sure you’ll love snow – make sure to bundle up πŸ™‚
    Have a wonderful week ahead and get in some good reads as well as the snow.

    • Yay, I got loads of winter clothes, which I am pretty sure I might never get a chance to use here again. And of course I am packing 3-4 books with me.

  2. I am pumped for the Harry Potter game! Although I’m not much of a mobile game user, I know I’ll at least give it a go for a couple weeks before forgetting about it (like I did Pottermore shhhhhh). I hope you have a great week πŸ™‚

  3. I had to go check out your review for Crooked House to make sure you liked it because it’s one of my favorites! So glad you did! I’m glad you clarified Georgia the country because my head would have immediately gone to the state and I can pretty much guarantee you won’t be seeing snow there! I hope you have a fantastic vacation and a great week!

    • I am hoping to read and re-read a lot of Agatha Christie’s this year. Hopefully I do it. Yay, still pretty excited about the vacation and I am nowhere near the USA to go to Georgia, the state on a whim. πŸ™‚

  4. Gah! I don’t think I want to know what’s in my draft folder – I can’t even remember what those posts were supposed to be about. And I must have been under a rock becuase I had no idea there was a new Harry Potter game coming out (oops!) I’m doing the A-Z reading challenge too, but am doing a terrible job keeping track of my challenges. I think I might have three letters done? ENJOY YOUR VACATION!!! πŸ™‚

    • I love tracking and doing lists in general. But I really really hope I finish it this year, at least to tick all the letters off on my list.

  5. Yay for vacation! Hope you have a great time in Georgia! And hope you enjoy the snow. I’m rather used to snow myself but it does always look nice coming down. πŸ™‚

    Have a wonderful week!

  6. So how is Georgia??? You’re probably there already!! Snow for the first time in your life? :0 I feel like I’ve seen snow for far too many days in my life xD but I hope you enjoy it and share some pics when you get back πŸ™‚

    Oh my, spreadsheet love? YES PLEASE! Nice posts you share πŸ™‚

    • I will boarding the flight in a few hours and I was so excited that I couldn’t sleep last night. I will definitely share pictures when I return.

      You should know how much I live by with spreadsheets πŸ™‚

  7. Safe travels! I hope you enjoy your trip.

    I didn’t have a chance to blog hop last week so thank you so much for all these interesting posts I want to stop by and read them.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip and best of luck on your challenges!

    • Thanks Tina. I will be posting few pictures (I wouldn’t want to overload) in my next Sunday post for you guys to see.
