It’s been hot the past few days here in the Netherlands and we had some bad thunderstorms in the evenings. And horror of all horrors, we lost our internet connection during one of those. I nearly had a panic attack, lol! Because the bad thing is that you don’t know how long the internet loss will go on until it’s finally over.
That night I realized how much I’ve come to depend on being able to look something up on the internet. Since I wasn’t able to hop some blogs or get on twitter, tumblr or pinterest anyway, I decided to read for a while. But I happened to be inbetween books.
What I normally do before picking a new book to read, is browsing my shelves on my ereader and then go to Goodreads to look up the backblurb of the book(s) that caught my eye to see if I’m in the mood for the story. But now I couldn’t do that, so I just had to jump in the book, only to find out a couple of pages later that I was hoping for something else. Arghh!
So, it made me wonder: why on earth don’t all publishers include the backblurb in the front of their ebooks?? Some publishers do that, for example Carina Press, but most don’t, which annoys me beyond belief, really. Does anyone know what’s up with that?
Anyway, I ended up reading Divide & Conquer by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux because that was a pretty safe bet on what I was going to get, namely something good. And I’d been meaning to pick it up because Armed & Dangerous was finally released which I was waiting for since it’s the only way I could handle the huge cliffhanger at the end of D&C I’d been hearing about. I’m weird with cliffhangers…
And I also found out recently that the sequel to Armed & Dangerous is announced for publication in August! Yay!
Sharon has been reading Divide & Conquer too this week, so, look forward to the review soon!
Happy Gay Friday everyone!~
