Anticipated October 2019 Releases


Fall is my favorite season, so I’m happy to see that October is so close.  It’s still a fairly big release month, but then it slows down quite a bit in November.  Maybe we’ll all be able to catch up (probably not).


As always, I can’t post all releases, so I just try to find ones that I’m excited for or ones I think others will be excited for.   You’ll notice that I didn’t pre-order much this month.  September was bad and we have some bigger expenses in October.  But I will be buying some of these that I haven’t ordered yet.   All dates taken from Goodreads.

Friday Face Off 9/20/19


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 theme is “hair”.

Blog Tour for Rules For Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall (ghost stories and legends)


I am so excited to be a part of Penguin’s blog tour for Rules For Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall.  I’m going to share information about the book and author.  I will also be sharing some ghost stories, lore, and legends.  I decided to find stories all in Illinois where I live to make it a bit more unique.


Please be aware that there will be stories of death and hauntings below.



Rules For Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall

In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs.

Once a year, the path appears in the forest and Lucy Gallows beckons. Who is brave enough to find her–and who won’t make it out of the woods?

It’s been exactly one year since Sara’s sister, Becca, disappeared, and high school life has far from settled back to normal. With her sister gone, Sara doesn’t know whether her former friends no longer like her…or are scared of her, and the days of eating alone at lunch have started to blend together. When a mysterious text message invites Sara and her estranged friends to “play the game” and find local ghost legend Lucy Gallows, Sara is sure this is the only way to find Becca–before she’s lost forever. And even though she’s hardly spoken with them for a year, Sara finds herself deep in the darkness of the forest, her friends–and their cameras–following her down the path. Together, they will have to draw on all of their strengths to survive. The road is rarely forgiving, and no one will be the same on the other side.

Expected publication: September 24th 2019 by Viking Books for Young Readers

Review of The Memory Thief by Lauren Mansy (digital arc)





The Memory Thief by Lauren Mansy

In the city of Craewick, memories reign. The power-obsessed ruler of the city, Madame, has cultivated a society in which memories are currency, citizens are divided by ability, and Gifted individuals can take memories from others through touch as they please.

Seventeen-year-old Etta Lark is desperate to live outside of the corrupt culture, but grapples with the guilt of an accident that has left her mother bedridden in the city’s asylum. When Madame threatens to put her mother up for auction, a Craewick practice in which a “criminal’s” memories are sold to the highest bidder before being killed, Etta will do whatever it takes to save her. Even if it means rejoining the Shadows, the rebel group she swore off in the wake of the accident years earlier.

To prove her allegiance to the Shadows and rescue her mother, Etta must steal a memorized map of the Maze, a formidable prison created by the bloodthirsty ruler of a neighboring Realm. So she sets out on a journey in which she faces startling attacks, unexpected romance, and, above all, her own past in order to set things right in her world.

Top Ten Tuesday 9/17/19




Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.   You can find each week’s topic on her site.


This week’s topic is favorite things to eat or drink while reading.  I wasn’t able to think of ten for this.  I’m not a big fan of eating while reading, so I mostly named the things I drink with a couple food items.
