Burn Rewrite Reread Tag

“Yes Sana, I want to do this tag. Yes, please tag me. Yes, favorites only please.” I hate myself right now.  Who even makes up a tag that makes you decide which of your favorite books you want to burn? Ok, admittedly it is kind of fun and Sana could have given me even worse options, at least for the first round, but still. I’m just going to pretend this never happened.

Round 1:tag_brr1

Burn:

I’m really sorry for this but I have to burn Tell The Wolves I’m Home. I love this book and it made me cry like a baby but it has to be one of the three and I just can’t burn any of the other two.

Rewrite:

I didn’t want to burn RPO and reread was already taken by Vicious, so rewriting it is. I’m not really sure what I want to rewrite though because I love RPO the way it is. Maybe tune down Wade’s obsession with Art3mis a bit, because it was somewhat creepy (even though I totally understand it because Art3mis is awesome).

Reread:

There is a reason why this book is on my “read-again-soon-and-often” shelf. It’s one of those books that I reread once a year because the story never gets old and I love Victor Vale so much.

Round 2:

tag_brr2

When I first saw these, I was like “Oh, that’s easy. I want to rewrite the ending of The Final Empire and then I…. oh”. NO WAY AM I BURNING MOM OR BLLB! That was the point when I seriously started to question my decision to do this tag.

Burn:

Well, it had to be one of the three so The Final Empire it is. I just can’t burn any of the other two. I’m sorry Kel, I love you, but I’ll burn this one so that I can pretend that thing you did at the end never happened.

Rewrite:

I dunno, I love BLLB, but if I have to choose between MoM and BLLB, it’s BLLB that I want to rewrite. Maybe make it more of a Ronan Lynch book like TDT was because oh boy I would love to be in his head during certain Pynch scenes. (Thanks for not choosing TDT Sana!)

Reread:

MONSTERS OF MEN, FOREVER AND ALWAYS! This book owns my soul, it’s fucking perfect and there is no chance in hell that I’m gonna burn or rewrite it.

 

I’m gonna cry over those poor books that got burned now.

I tag Sebastian and Ellie.

Spreadsheets: Conditional Formatting

SpreadsheetTut1

Conditional formatting is something I only got into recently. I love when my spreadsheets do all kinds of things automatically, especially giving me statistics and pulling certain data from a big sheet. So naturally, because I also like my spreadsheets to look nice, I looked into conditional formatting. The basic usage is pretty simple, but if you want to take it a step further, you need some formulas, so I thought I’ll share how it’s done. Keep reading

The Gospel of Loki

by

Release Date: February 2014

Publisher:

Genre:

Series: -

Summary:

With his notorious reputation for trickery and deception, and an ability to cause as many problems as he solves, Loki is a Norse god like no other. Demon-born, he is viewed with deepest suspicion by his fellow gods who will never accept him as one of their own and for this he vows to take his revenge.

From his recruitment by Odin from the realm of Chaos, through his years as the go-to man of Asgard, to his fall from grace in the build-up to Ragnarok, this is the unofficial history of the world’s ultimate trickster. Keep reading

Recap: June 2015

June was weird. It felt like it lasted forever and was over way too quickly at the same time. I feel like May was just yesterday but it can’t be because somehow I read a lot of books in the past month. I don’t even know how I found the time to read all these but I’m happy that I did.

Spreadsheet: Book Series

I have shared this spreadsheet before, about a year ago, but it has changed so much since then and I also didn’t share an empty copy in case someone wants to use it too. So here it is again. 

I case you didn’t know: I love series. I always prefer series over standalones which means that I have a huge list of series that I read/am reading/want to read. I just had to start a spreadsheet to keep track of them all. That I love getting statistics about what I read only adds to that need.

This is an example of how I keep track of my series:

series_all

I have a row for each series and then keep track of when series start and finish, when I started and finished them, as well as a status for each individual book. Keep reading
