  2. This book has one of the most gorgeous covers I've ever laid eyes on. I wasn't a big fan of the book itself, but I hope you enjoy! Happy Friday.

  4. I love the author's word choices: thwack and flutter. He brought the scene to life! This sounds like a fascinating story.
    THANK YOU for hosting The Friday 56, and congratulations on your Memeversary.

  5. Passenger didn't really work out for me, which is a shame because I loved Bracken's The Darkest Minds trilogy. I really hope you enjoy Passenger more than I did. And, I wasn't aware of the fact that the Friday 56 has been around for that long, but I'm glad because it's one of my favorite weekly memes. 6 years is definitely a milestone to be proud of!

  10. Passenger in on my TBR mountain. I'm not too fond of time travel and so have have been choosing to read other books instead. My YA book this week is A Season of Daring Greatly by Ellen Emerson White which I really loved. Happy reading!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
