Friday Friyay: 'Goddesses Inc.' by Autumn Bardot
Book Beginnings is at home on Rose City Reader, hosted by Gilion Dumas, and Friday 56 at Freda's Voice, hosted by Freda. I'll also be joining the Book Blog Hop, hosted by Billy over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. These quotes are from an ARC and may differ in the published book.
'"Welcome to FEM, the originator of divine, semi-divine, and quasi-divine female empowerment and resources. The records department is located on the second floor. The legal department, the third. Find justice on the fifth floor. War is on the sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth."' p.1
Love that we get dropped straight into something odd with the first line. I love the divisions of "realms" or "powers" across different floors and did have a sad cackle at the fact that war gets four floors to itself and justice only one. This opening definitely sucks me right in!
'Mnem returned to her list. It was too short. A tarantula's knee short. This list was supposed to help spin a resume. Instead it was a venomous reminder of her failings.' p.56
Writing resumes is honestly so hard which is why I always advise you do it with a friend. A friend is much more likely to remember all the good and interesting things you've done, whereas you might forget things or consider them not important enough. The fact that Mnemosyne has a short list is honestly surprising to me!
This week's question was suggested by Elizabeth from Silver's Reviews and it's a great one:
Where do you post your reviews?
All of my reviews are posted here on this blog primarily and then, depending on where I got the book from, it differs. Books I got through NetGalley are of course also posted there, usually at the same time as on my blog. (Question: should I post my reviews on NetGallet sooner? I always feel like I should send them there as soon as I finish reading...) And then from there the reviews usually also go onto Goodreads. I don't post my reviews to Amazon frequently, but I always do when asked.
What are you reading at the moment? And where do you share your reviews to?
