      Ah, yes. I’m particularly bad at remembering details between books in a series. I remember the days when I didn’t have a huge TBR pile and would reread a book before the next in the series was released. I haven’t done that in a long time!

    I totally need to start using the #bloggerpeople hashtag! I did read about the fake Penguin employee and it just makes me sad. I can understand that it’s hard for indie authors to get their titles reviewed, but it is never ever okay to be a fraud.

    Off to check out some of the other links!

      I just found it really bizarre! Though definitely sad someone would go through all that just for attention. She did get publicity, and maybe “no publicity is bad publicity,” but she also faces very real legal action from Penguin for using their letterhead, posing as an employee, etc. Plus she seems to have been using some form of her real name and now this will come up if anyone Googles her. :/

      I love round-up posts, too! I loved the massive one Oh the Books! used to do, but haven’t been able to find one since, so I just started my own. :p
