Inky's Fri-yay May 15

Welcome to another Fri-yay where we yay all the things posted by blinkys and blogdogs. And this week is no exception – another impressive week of reviews, creativity and bookish community goodness. So yay for us!

So how is it going for you? How does it feel to be a character in an ongoing dystopian novel? Sylvs is finding it a bit too realistic but feels there could be some changes to the plot. And perhaps more romance? Go over and have a look at the clever parody on NOVELty reads and see what you have to add. Any artists out there want to design the cover? Let’s hope this novel is a stand-alone and not an epic series.

In more creative writing, siany over at Stories from Outer Space is working on a new story idea. Go over and cheer them on. We. Need. More. New. Stories. Yay!

Forrestpuff at Bookish  has beautifully reviewed The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro INCLUDING DIAGRAMS, emotions, confusion  – the lot! If this review doesn’t capture your imagination, I don’t know what will! They have also wrapped up their April Reading list with a great post and deserves a diverse reading prize for sure. If I had such a prize I would give it to you.

But hey, although their should be prizes for reading, apparently there are not prizes for reading. You can’t even get a job where you are paid for just reading. Believe me. I have tried.

In book reviews we have a plethora of books, genres and opinions.

Ellsbells on the Mortal Blog has returned with a blockbuster post of all recent reads including series Cassandra Clare and Veronica Roth! Welcome back ellsbells! A 5/5 review for Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi (which is part of the Shatter Me series) from purplepanda at Chapter by Chapter, including a wonderful favourite quote, while over at Confessions of a Readerholic is a review of a new release LoveOzMG book, As Fast As I Can, that dredged up forgotten sporting dreams  – turns out many of us have those could-have-been-a-champion-if-only past lives!
And a not as good as one hoped review from sekhmet at Books I Am Reading. Go and see if you agree?

Finally, a truly stellar review from guppy for a stellar Silver Inky Award winning book, The Hate U Give.

I’d be like Oprah and give you ALL PRIZES ! Well done blogdogs on another awesome week! You make it all worthwhile. See you around!









Maybe the author could finish writing the dystopian novel... now? Please?

I think that sounds like a good idea. It’s just dragging on at this point and all the main characters are sitting at home!
