That Awkward Thursday (16) Miss Forgetful

That Awkward Thursday is a feature hosted by Wholly Books where it's not only okay but encouraged to share your awkward moments! 

That awkward moment you forget to change some of the book information you copied and pasted from last week's post

Okay, guys this week's post is going to be super short because tonight I am super tired and my eye lids are literally closing as I'm typing this. There's a real possiblity that none of this makes sense and for that I'm sorry. I blame sleep deprivation. 

So a couple of months ago I did a WoW post for Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead. On all of my WoW I include basic information about the book: title, author, publisher, description and why I'm waiting. Well, the week before one of my part time bloggers had done a WoW post for some YA book (I can't remember which book but I think it was a Harper Teen title). I am a huge fan of copy and paste so include of starting my WoW post from scratch I copied the info from her post and changed the information (or so I thought) to the info for Gameboard of the Gods. 

As it turns out, I did change the title and author I forgot to change out the publisher. So there I was having Gameboard of the Gods (an adult book) published by a YA publisher. I didn't notice until one of my wonderful commenters commented saying that the thought it was published with a different publisher because Gameboard of the Gods was not a YA book. I was so embarassed!

Luckily, it was a quick fix and I got everything corrected without any more mishaps. 

So like I said short and sweet tonight!

Don't forget to leave your thoughts or links below!!!


  1. Story of my life! I do this all the time on my reviews. Not so much since I've switched to Wordpress and started using the UBB. But still. And the worst part is - the same person every time would point it out. It's like no. You don't comment any other time - just LEAVE. Granted, I can be a bit overdramatic at times - but still.

    Great topic!

    1. Haha! I was actually grateful they pointed it out so I could fix it before anyone else saw but it was still embarassing. It's like walking around with your zipper undone and some strange tells you. You're embarassed the person told you but at least everyone else won't see! lol.

  2. I've made a similar mistake on a Waiting on Wednesday post, I once said a book was published by Harper Collins when it was actually published by Harlequin Teen and someone had to comment and point out my mistake. I definitely felt a bit embarrassed!

    1. Yep! It happens to all of us for sure!
