Goodreads Monday 4/6/20

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

It’s getting hard to remember which ones I’ve done already, so I’m sorry if you see a book pop up on these more than once.  It will happen.

The Hummingbird Dagger by Cindy Anstey

1833. After young Lord James Ellerby witnesses a near-fatal carriage accident on the outskirts of his estate, he doesn’t think twice about bringing the young woman injured in the wreck to his family’s manor to recuperate. But then she finally regains consciousness only to find that she has no memory of who she is or where she belongs.

Beth, as she takes to calling herself, is an enigma even to herself. She has the rough hands of a servant, but the bearing and apparent education of a lady. Her only clue to her identity is a gruesome recurring nightmare about a hummingbird dripping blood from its steel beak.

With the help of James and his sister, Caroline, Beth slowly begins to unravel the mystery behind her identity and the sinister circumstances that brought her to their door. But the dangerous secrets they discover in doing so could have deadly ramifications reaching the highest tiers of London society.

Down The TBR Hole #128

 

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 am going to remove sequels for books when I haven’t read book one.  They may or may not get added back later.

Wrap Up for March 2020 TBR and Beyond Challenge

 

Just a quick update post on the March 2020 TBR and Beyond Challenge.  I had no set TBR and just found spaces for books as I finished them.  I actually did really well for this one.

Friday Face Off 4/3/20

 

I saw this on Lynn’s Book Blog and thought it would be fun to do.  I may not do every week, but I’m going to try to do as many as I can.

 

The Friday Face Off meme was created by Books by Proxy .  This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favorite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme, choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favorite.

 

This week’s topic is More Than Meets The Eye.

April 2020 TBR and Beyond Challenge

 

How is it April already?  TBR and Beyond has a mix and match challenge that starts today.  This is a fun one and has a coloring sheet!  You can join the challenge HERE.  You do need to be a TBR and Beyond member (facebook).

 

Rules:

To play all you have to do is pick a card (up to two) and read a book with that prompt on it or do the activity on the card.

For the activities, you can still pair it with either a book or another activity. You must show us that you did the activity by placing a photo under the correct spot in the challenge. It will be clearly marked – just ask if you can’t find it.

The cards are up to YOUR interpretation. Example: Magic could be a character that uses magic or a magical land …. Just use your imagination!

Prize this month will be any book from Book Depository (up to $15 US).

Prize Entries –
Each book read is worth one entry.
Each activity is worth two entries.
Finish the game – 5 extra entries.

Extra Entry Chances:
Color your actual cards – Two extra entries
Read a TBR and Beyond group book – Love Boat, Taipei by Abagail Hing Wen, The Shadows Between Us by Tricia Levenseller or House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas – Three extra entries per book. If you read all books in April you will get a bonus and get 10 extra entries altogether.

– We maybe have one or two more ways to earn entries as time the month goes on, so keep an eye out for that.

Hopefully this is a fun, challenge and don’t worry if you can’t do it all. This is was just meant to be something to keep us distracted while we are all stuck inside!
