My week was dominated by a bad migraine that I got Tuesday night and that I'm still fighting with. I blame the weather for my migraine, drastic weather changes are never my friend. So I didn't read a lot of books, because reading with a migraine is no fun. But still I managed to read 4 books and to listen to one audiobook. And out of these five books I enjoyed four a lot (my favs are "Grave Mercy" by Robin LaFevers and "Belles" by Jen Calonita). So it was a pretty mixed week, I hope that next week will be also full of great books but without the migraine.
Of course I also stumbled over the plagiarism scandal this week (read this post by one of the victims for all the info you need). In my opinion plagiarism is not a little mistake, it's something serious and when done deliberately not excusable. In the end everyone has to decide how to handle it. When one of my own reviews was plagiarized a few weeks ago, I was so mad and sad. And I still am. I'm not interested in forgive & forget when dealing with people who plagiarize and then act as if it's nothing too serious. And I also don't want to support people who don't have the courage to write a real apology that contains all the details and links to the victims.
Enough of these serious things, let's talk about something nice instead. I'm excited for May and the new books that will be released in it. My May list will not be super huge, instead it will be full of personal highlights like the new books by Nora Roberts and Sarra Manning. Just thinking about these books makes me abuzz.
How was your bookish week?
