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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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 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 you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!
It works like this:
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
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.
Our new challenge for TBR and Beyond is a two month board game! You have to be a member of the TBR and Beyond facebook group to join. Members can find the game link here.
