For awhile now I've wanted to do a Throwback Thursday type of post where I share things that I enjoyed but aren't maybe as popular now as they might once have been. However, I could never really decide what sort of content I wanted it to cover. Did I just stick to books or would I talk about tech and movies as well? In the end I decided it didn't need to fit into some pre-designed mold, I'd just cover anything I felt was interesting enough to post about. The only rule is that whatever the content, it must be at least 1 year or older before being shared. Anything sooner and it feels too fresh for me. This will be a work in process as I get a feel for how I want to share things so please bear with me. Also I still need a post image as I haven't figured out a design yet. Alrighty then, on to the content.
To kick off my very first post, I decided I'd throw things back to my very first Blood, Sweat and Books review which was posted on January 28, 2012. The book was called Pyxis by K.C. Neal and it was one that I had won through another blogger's giveaway. I admit, I haven't looked at this post in a good long while and going over it I can see how eager I was to get things just right. I won't go so far as to call it cringeworthy but it definitely was a bit green around the edges if you catch my drift. If you'd like to read that full review, you may do so by clicking Here!
Now, if you haven't heard of Pyxis before, you're in for a treat. The story is about a girl named Corrine whose average life gets turned upside down when she uses her late grandmother's food dyes for a bake sale. The story was released in November of 2011 and is the first in a 3 books series.
