(Click Links to be taken directly to the posts)

It's been another jam packed week on the blog and the upcoming week is just as busy!

Coming Up This Week:

  • Review of Twelve Months by Steven Manchester
  • Review of Anthology I: The Other Side by Hamidah Gul
  • There will be a book promo. It's under wraps until later this week though so I can't give more detail than that, you'll just have to wait and see!
  • I also have a fun little project that I want to take on to spread some holiday cheer, so I hope you guys'll stop by for that.
  • Behind the Blog: This week's topic is Mental Health Here's the prompt for anyone who'd like to join up with BTB :  Unfortunately, in this day and age, there are still a lot of problems surrounding mental health. A large amount of the population are under-educated and ill-advised about mental illnesses and can often make some situations worse. Mental health is something that affects a large proportion of society but many will be too ashamed or worried to seek help because they fear their peers will not understand what is happening. So this week, to help support everyone with a mental illness, we’re asking you to talk about the subject in relation to your life. How has it affected you or your loved ones?  In relation to media, are there any books or films that you feel highlight specific mental illnesses well or seem to damage their reputation?
So, as you can see, it's going to be another jam packed week here at Melissa's Midnight Musings. I hope you'll all stop by and check out these great posts I have lined up.

Fun Search Terms:
Since there were some interesting search terms that helped people find this blog this week I thought I'd share a few:

"calories in tim horton's cherry chee" I'm guessing they wanted to know the number of calories in a Tim Horton's Cherry Cheese Danish. I don't know, and honestly I don't care because they're just too good.

Charmed Cole sex I do talk about Charmed a lot on this blog but I have never mentioned Charmed in relation to sex, I'm pretty sure.

Sorry you didn't enjoy Breaking Dawn. Sounds like you had a great week though.

I'm one of the few that really enjoyed the Twilight series. It was one of the first YA books (series) I read, so maybe that was why. I didn't really have much to compare it to. Now I definitely like others more, but I'm still a Twilight fan. :) Hope you enjoy your books this week!

Alison Can Read said...

I keep forgetting. I need to reread Breaking Dawn. It's the only Twilight book I haven't reviewed.

Tiffany Drew said...

Love the search terms lol. I don't get any weird ones, although I get some pretty interesting spam emails! Looks like you have some great reading ahead of you. I hope you enjoy all you new goodies!

Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

Melissas Midnight Musings said...

@Kimba: Thanks Kim!

@Sandy: It wasn't horrible, just not my favorite. Thanks for stopping by!

I jumped on the Twilight train really late, so maybe that's why I didn't enjoy it as much? I'm not sure.

Thanks. Gotta love those search terms they can be pretty amusing. I've been getting a ton of spam email lately too, so I know what you mean about those.

Love those books. Mental health week! I am looking forward to it. Breaking Dawn disappointed me too.
