#027 Follow & Feature: Best & Worst Book and #004 TGIF: Social Platforms

TGIF is an awesome feature created by Ginger at GReads! It's a nifty way to re-cap the week's activity on the blog, see what you might have missed, and play catch up with other blogs by linking up. There's also a question of the week you can choose to participate in if you want. Check it out sometime, you might like it.


Social Networking: Do you use Twitter or Facebook to promote your blog? How has it benefited your book blogging experience? If not, how do you promote your blog? Share your twitter handle and/or Facebook link!

I actually had a Twitter account BEFORE I started my book blog, that I used occassionally. Funny story of how it got its name (endsxtonight), it's actually the name of one of my favorite songs by the All American Rejects - It Ends Tonight. I created my Twitter account during the sixth season of Smallville (one of my favorite original WB shows) and in one of the episodes the All American Rejects were performing It Ends Tonight live at Lex's Halloween party. At the time, Lex and Lana, were one of my biggest OTP's and I was obssessing over them daily. That particular episode, that scene where the All American Rejects were performing that song live, and the ending of it - was quite possibly hands down one of my FAVORITE moments of Smallville ever. So, the Twitter was born, and I haven't looked back sense.

I have had my moments of a long and winding love/hate relationship with Twitter, but I love using it to keep in touch with my friends, fellow bloggers, promoting my book blog, checking in with my favorite author's, and creating more buzz for some pretty amazing books I've read over the last year or so. It's such a great platform for a lot of people to come together and just get to know one another a little better, in an easier, somewhat laid back style. Sometimes it drives me mad that it's only limited to 140 character's, but other times I'm just kind of glad. Who wants to see a crazy 823 word monolouge on their Twitter page when you can just as easily convert that same monolouge into a couple of really great paragraphs to share on your blog.

Twitter keeps me in touch with various happenings that I might have missed on the the blog feeds I follow, alerts me to awesome giveaways, and helps me to keep in touch with amazing author's and publisher's in their world of books. So, yep...I'm a Twitter-feind for sure.

I love new followers with interesting things to say and share, so definitely follow me @endsxtonight.

What is the best book you’ve read in the last month? What is the worst book you’ve read in the last month?

I haven't really read a book that I would consider "the worst" book in the last month or so. Most of the books that I've read have been ARC's for review obtained through the publisher or book tour and I've really enjoyed them a great deal. I guess if I had to list a couple of my favorites they would be Embrace by Jessica Shirvington and Struck by Jennifer Bosworth. Both were filled with a lot of actions, emotional turmoil, and new and interesting takes on events/mythology that shows original flare.

To tell the truth, I haven't really read a dud in quite a while.

What's your best/worst read?

❝Hopping Through?!❞


  1. That answers that about your Twitter handle! Now I'm curious about how you chose the title A Soul Unsung for your blog...

  2. There are so many books left with many stories untold, that will never be told from smaller characters, through different means. You don't just close a book and put it up on a shelf to grow old and collect dust, you leave a part of yourself - a trace of your soul - behind with it. The unresolved stories of those wonderful characters are like "a soul unsung..." which is why I decided to name my blog A Soul Unsung. 

    They have this way of leaving their mark on you and the reader has this way of leaving a trace of their soul behind in tact with the pages. Reading a book is a personal thing, it says a little about who you are by the choices in reading materials that you've made. 

  3. I felt the same way about the books I've read lately, until I read the four books before "Goddess Interrupted" and "Heist Society." I thought I was going to end up in a reading slump. Thank GOD I didn't!
