I tried to take things easier this month, so we didnt't have as much content, and I was supposed to have a 2 weeks break, but apparently, I can't stop blogging *shrug*. I hope you all had a nice holiday last week and got all the presents you wanted! But until I get myself together, take a look at what we were up to this past month. We are getting near the end of phase 1 in SPFBO and we are done with slush piling so we'll start announcing our semi-finalists real soon. But we also read some other great books too, and hosted awesome authors. Hoo boy, but November was crazy busy as we got to the end of SPFBO 5's Phase 1 and I tried to catch up to myself after my little time out in October - with some more time out. Oh well. I had some needed down time and I also got offered to work from home, which resulted in a week spent getting both my room and office ready for the switch - meaning I had to clean, sort things, find place for everything and make my desk ready to function as it should, instead of a surface where I could throw clothes and stuff in a heap. Er, yeah, so, a lot happened both in my personal life and on the blog, and now I'll show you what we were up to here at RockStarlit BookAsylum.
Overall I did enjoy Rivers of London. It had some really good ideas and the mystery kept me guessing until the endgame, but the characters fell a bit flat for me. I think there is a lot of room for improvement in the series, but Rivers of London being the first book, it definitely set the base for a great series. I can see why many people seem to love it, and though we need to work on each other a bit more, I believe we'll get there in the end.
Can you believe it's already the end of 2019?! It definitely was a roller coaster of a year for me. It was also crazy busy, so I decided to take things easier in the second half of the month. Holidays are coming and I need a bit of a break, so posts won't be as frequent as usually. But don't worry, we won't leave you alone for too long 😉
