November Edelweiss and Netgalley Wrap Up

 

NG-EW-Sign-Up-Post-Pic

 

I joined the Netgalley & Edelweiss Challenge hosted by Bookish Things and More.  This is my update for September.

 

It looks like the Bookish Things & More blog isn’t there anymore.  Does anyone know if someone else took over this challenge?  I haven’t been able to add my links.  But I’m still going to keep posting these.

November 2018 Book Haul

 

I honestly thought my haul for November would be so much smaller.  But I forgot about all the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales.  Plus, Barnes & Noble had a buy 2 get 1 free sale for graphic novels.  I got a lot of those (but my husband reads them, too).

 

I’ll start with digital books first.

 

From Edelweiss:

 

 

Let Me Hear A Rhyme by Tiffany Jackson

Fan The Fame by Anna Priemaza

The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters

Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

Books I Want To Read By The End Of The Year

 

I’m not a big fan of making a TBR (the pressure!), but lately I’ve had to write down an arc schedule and group read schedule.  There are so many books I still need to read, but I thought I would share the ones I’m really hoping to get to before the end of the year.

November 2018 Wrap Up

 

How is it already December?  In a way, I’m glad November went by so quickly because 2018 hasn’t been the best year.  But also, why do the months go by so quickly now?

 

I did ok with my reading for November, especially since I was really sick for part of the month.  I’m really hoping I can get through this many in December, too.  I have a somewhat busier month planned.

My Wrap Up for the TBR and Beyond November Princess Challenge

 

TBR and Beyond (facebook group) had a fun challenge for November.  I was able to finish one rope and a few other random books.  If you haven’t joined TBR and Beyond yet, I hope you do soon.  We have challenges every month along with group reads and live author chats.  We also have readathons every so often.

Down The TBR Hole #58

 

Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go

 

I’m going to start doing these a little differently to save picture space/time.  I’ll still list all 15-20 books, but I’m only going to add a few pictures.  It will likely be the books I’m keeping unless there are none for the week.  Then I’ll add a few random ones so it’s not super boring.

Anticipated 2019 Middle Grade Books

 

There are quite a few middle grade books coming out in 2019 that sound really good.  I thought I would share 16 of those with you.  I’m not going to share covers for all of them because of storage space, but I’ll share a few cool ones.

 

Race to the Sun by Rebecca Roanhorse (no cover yet)

A seventh-grade girl and her brother, aided by various Navajo gods disguised as relatives, must stay one step ahead of a shape-shifting monster as they follow in the footsteps of the legendary Hero Twins to save their family.

 

 

Aru Shah and the Song of Death by Roshani Chokski

36323794

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents best-selling author Roshani Chokshi and her sequel to Aru Shah and the End of Time. Aru is only just getting the hang of this whole Pandava thing when the Otherworld goes into full panic mode. The god of love’s bow and arrow have gone missing, and the thief isn’t playing Cupid. Instead, they’re turning people into heartless fighting-machine zombies. If that weren’t bad enough, somehow Aru gets framed as the thief. If she doesn’t find the arrow by the next full moon, she’ll be kicked out of the Otherworld. For good. But, for better or worse, she won’t be going it alone. Along with her soul-sister, Mini, Aru will team up with Brynne, an ultra-strong girl who knows more than she lets on, and Aiden, the boy who lives across the street and is also hiding plenty of secrets. Together they’ll battle demons, travel through a glittering and dangerous serpent realm, and discover that their enemy isn’t at all who they expected.
